Ka Puuhonua (The Observer) is the title of a small Hawaiian weekly which has made its appearance in Honolulu, the first issue seeing the light last Friday. It is published by the Protective Publishing Company, of which Delegate Kalanianaole is president. Mayor Lane, vice president; Rev. Akaiko Akana, secretary; D. P. McGregor, treasurer; John H. Wise, auditor, with S. C. Dwight and William J. Sheldon as directors. Rev. Akaiko Akana, head of the Young People’s League is editor of Ka Puuhonua with James H. S. Kaleo as assistant editor. In an early issue John H. Wise will publish a “dream” in which he will tell the Hawaiians what transpired in the past, what is happening now and what the future will likely bring them.
