Attempted suicide or worse, created
a sensation at WalkikI yesterday Just
before noon, when a young Hawaiian
girl was dragged from the water, put
into a hack by a soldier who accom

Eyewitnesses to the affair got no

Attention was attracted to the girl
art er she had gone into the water, and
witnesses . say that apparently she
had flung herself into the sea while
partly under the 'influence of liquor.
The pair are said to have come from
the city together. '
There were reports that the girl
had beeij thrown into the water, but
these could not be confirmed. Sev
eral people who aided in getting the
girl ashore and into the hack can say
only that she was, driven down town.
