of Maui Dies of Hemorrhage of Lungs
After a Short Illness.
W. H. Pickett Killed while Visiting Mill Pioneer Sugar Man

Very Pleasant Surprise Party.
SAD FATALITY AT PUUNENE.
One of the saddest fatalities that
has occurred on tho island for a
long time happened at Puunene
Mill last Saturday night when W
H. Pickett, oho of our brightest
young men, met an untimely death.
Mr. Pickett and Ed. Peck had
dressed to go to Kihei for the even
ing but before going Mr. Pickett
suggested that they go through the
mill as ho had not been through
it. In going down a ladder he
stopped where a small shaft that
turns some minor machinery re
volves at tho rate of two hundred
and fifty revolutions per minute.
It is believed that his coat got
caught by this shaft and. wrapping
it tightly around tho shaft drew
him to it and threw him around
and around breaking both legs and
arms and badly mangling them as
well as fracturing his skull.
A Portuguese engineer saw Mr,
Pickett drawn in by the shaft and
instantly threw off the belt operat
ing the machinery hut it was too
late. That tho engineer was not
himself killed is a mystery.
Mr. Pickett was tenderly cared
for and everything possible done
to relieve his suffering. Ho lived
aboutono hour af terthe accident and
wns concious up to tho last. Be
fore he died he asked that his. peo
ple be not apprized of his death by
wire as bad news travels fast
enough. He asked that this body

quest was complied with, and
his most intimate friend, Ed
Peck left tho next day with the

will have it embalmed, and will

Mr. Pickett was a young man of
ability, and was highly respected
by all who knew him. He had
been employed on tho new ditches
of tho Hawaiian Commercial and
Sugar Company during the past
eighteen months, which position is
considered very dangerous, and

over a precipice, a distance of near
ly forty feet and came out unhurt,

the irony of fate.

JOIN HIND VISITS HIS OLD
John Hind, who is tho manager
of thoJTawi, Mill Co., of Kohala,
'HawauYsp'ent some days on this
island this week, visiting the old
familiar haunts of his boyhood
Mr. Hind's father was tho pio
neer sugar manufacturer on the
island, and operated a mill up the
lao Valloy above tho bridge.
When Mr. Hind Senior operated
his mill here two wealthy Maui
men whose names have sinco be
come known throughout the sugar
world were growing cane and haul
ing tho same in bullock carts to
his mill to have it ground.
One of these men was S. T. Alex
ander, who was then growing can.e
at Haiku and the other was Hon
orable H P. Baldwin, who was
growing cane in Waihee.
In tho early days of cane grow
ing it was the custom lor the own
ers of land to grow tho cane and
have it ground on the shares at
mill that was owned and operated
by persons not interested in the
growing of tho same.
As there was little in growing
cane at that timc,and the two inde
pendent concerns were necessarily
expensive and involved the outlay
of much more that was necessary
for tho upkeep of the two interests
Messrs. Alexander and Baldwin
conceived tho idea of combining
the two under one management,
and by tho hardest kind of work
and close application to their in
terests succeeded in making a suc
cess of their enterprises that few
The improvements made on the
island sinco Mr. Hind lived here
are so vast that ho was unablo to
find hardly anything that ho could
remember having seen when a boy.
Hi3 own success in tho sugar in
dustry has heen.very marked, and
ho ranks as one of tho leading sugar
men of tho islands.
