About

The Daily Herald was published in Honolulu every morning except Sunday from September 1886 to July 1887. In its ten-month history, it provided editorial comment mildly critical of the Hawaiian monarchy and published local news and commentary on all of the Hawaiian Islands--including shipping information, numerous ads, and foreign news garnered from imported newspapers. Honolulu in the mid-nineteenth century was a modern city. Just before the Daily Herald appeared, on July 21,1886, the ‘Iolani Palace Square was illuminated by electric lights(two years before electricity was installed in the White House), and in 1888, electric street lighting would replace Honolulu’s gas lamps.
