Wniluku Cemetery mysteriously dis-.
appeared, and ever since un til Thurs
day, "unavailing search has been made
for them. It wns cluiined that Mr.

Wuiluku Plantation ami a trustee of
the eciretery corporation, had charge
of the refol ds, and that they had been
deposited in the sale f the Sugar

Bal, Attorney W. F. Crockett-and
several cither gentlemen, while m t
street corner chat broached the sub

lhatiu the oflice of Attorm-y John
Richardson at Wailuku, where Mr
Crockett now ,has his law office, he
had within the past few days run
aciuss some deeds and papers which
might be the missing documents. Mr.
Bal and Mr. Crockett at o'uee went
to the office, and sure enough found
the-charter, deed and other records
It is supposed that the papers were
left in Mr. Richardson's office by the
late George Hons, at the time he was
u student iu Mr. Richardson's law of'
fice, as Mr. Hons w us ulso a book
keeper, and probably officiated as
secretary of ihe cemetery corpora
tion. ' ' l . . .
The papers were at once tcmied
over to Mr. Bal, who telephone Mr. E,
H. Bailey of Makawao, the only re
m tuning trustee of the corporation, of
the n'nd. Mr. Bailey is expected in
Wailuku today, and immediate steps
will undoubtedly be taken to hold a
meeting and secure a new board of
trustees for the corporation.
For some years past Mr. Bal has
looked after the cemetery, but has
not collected any money for fcale of
lots, as; be stated that ho had no
authority to do so.
In the meantime the cemetery
grounds have been sidly neglected
and the fence surrounding it is rot
ting away. The citizens of Wailuku
will heartily fcooperato with Mr,
hsauev in the matter of reorganizing
the affairs of the cemetery corpora
tion, and as soon as possible, steps
will be taken to improve the grounds,

that he has during his whole life borne
