About

The Hawaii Holomua has a complicated publication history. On May 2, 1891, publication of the Hawaii Holomua began in four versions:  the daily and weekly Hawaiian language editions and the daily and weekly bilingual Hawaiian and English versions. In 1893, the Holomua Publishing Company purchased the Hawaii Holomua, and the first issue of the paper's English-only daily was published on September 18, 1893. This version replaced its bilingual daily and weekly editions, but the Hawaiian language daily and weekly editions continued to be published.  Titled the Hawaii Progress Holomua, the English-only edition was published every afternoon except Sundays and holidays. In four to five pages, each issue contained local news, editorials, advertisements, legal notices, schedules (including mail service, ship arrivals and departures, and sports), and various columns (including personal notes and church services). Circulation of its various editions was estimated to be 5,000.
