luku Sugar Co. train, was crushed
to death on Tuesday afternoon, by
the overturning of the locomotive,
near the bend of the government
read between town and the Wailuku
A coroner's jury, composed of
L. M. Baldwin, Coroner, J. N. K.
Keola. Foreman, W. II. King, Jos.
F. Welch, M. J. Faustino, W. E. Bal
and John T. Aluli were empanelled,
and viewed the remains at the place
of the accident, on Tuesday evening.
Upon evidence produced before
the jury at the hearing on Thursday,
the jury returned a verdict that
Kakalia was crushed to death under
the locomotive which accidentally
ran off the track, and that the ac
cident was caused by the weakness
of the wooden bridges and also by
the bad condition of the track at
the point where the accident hap
pened. Kakalia was a very promising
young Hawaiian, who stood high
in the esteem of countrymen. He
was related by marriage to Senator
S. E. Kaiue of Wailuku.
Dentil of John McClendon.
Mr. John McCIendou, an account
of whose accident at Kahului was re
cently mentioned in this paper, died
at Malulani Hospital, on Feb. 17.
From the time of the accident, he
never fully recovered consciousness
save for a few moments at a time,
and without any suffering lie passed
Mr. McClendon came to Maui
about a year ago, to work on the
Maunaolu Seminary building. Upon
the completion of the seminary, he
was offered and accepted the posi
tion of head carpenter of the Kahu
lui Railroad, which position he filled
with satisfaction to his employers,
to the time of his death. While with
the company, he built the large
warehouse depot at Paia.
Mr. McClendon stood very high in
the esteem of his employers, and his
loss will be keenly elt by them as
well as by the many friends whom he
had made on Maui. He leaves a
wife and a little daughter, about
four years old, in Alameda, Cal.
Funeral services were held at the

most enjovable evening.

truit in Central Maui.
The Wuihee string band was pre
sent, and the native music lent an
siddtd charm to tho feast, at which
uasls flew thick and fast. The
handsomest man in tho room was
e '.lled on. to respond to the toast to
"Tho Ladies," and the Nkws feels
bound to, state as an impartial
critic, that he responed with a very
stupid speech, considering tho in
spiring theme presented. The honor
ed guist of the evening was toasted,
auu responded gracefully.
After tlw luau was finished, the
rooms were cleared, and the guests
enjoyed themselves dancing to a late
