SHERIFF SAMUEL K. PUA, THE FAMED DETECTIVE OF THE ISLAND OF KEAWE

HIS AMAZING WORK OVER THESE PAST YEARS

HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS ARE A “PROUD LEI FOR THE PEOPLE TO WEAR FOR ALL TIMES.”

[This is the headline to an in-depth three-page story complete with pictures of the detective work of Sam K. Pua (10/27/1867–8/1/1932), as appears in the final issue of Hoku o Hawaii for 1914! I have yet to come across another story given that much coverage in one issue of a newspaper.

The issues of Hoku o Hawaii before 5/31/1917 are as of yet not available online.]
