Maui Shinbun / 馬哇新聞 [Maui Shimbun], (Wailuku, HI)

Maui Shinbun Masthead

The Maui Shinbun, founded by Kinjirō Yokogawa, in Wailuku, Maui, in 1906, was a semiweekly newspaper. The paper expanded significantly after being taken over by Satosuke Yasui. The English section was added in 1928; the paper ceased publishing in 1941. Taking a conservative editorial policy, the paper remained neutral in the issues of the 1920 plantation strike and the Japanese-language schools. Both the Maui Shinbun and its rival the Maui Rekōdo relied heavily on advertisements to fund the papers.

『馬哇新聞』は 横川金次郎により1906年にマウイ島のワイルクで創刊され、週二回の発行だった。安井里助が経営を引き受けたのち、大幅に拡大した。英語欄は1928年にスタートしたが、最終的に同紙は1941年に廃刊になった。保守的な編集方針をとり、1920年のプランテーション第二次ストライキや日本語学校問題でも中立の立場を貫いた。ライバル紙『馬哇レコード』と同様、新聞広告への依存度が高かった。
