A GREAT SUCCESS,
On Tuesday tho 3rd a Japanese
laborer of Kaluanui discovered the
dead body of a fellow countryman
floating in a pool of water just be
low the concrete bridge spanning
Maliko gulch at Kaluanui. The
body was much swollen and de
composed showing that death had
taken place sometime before.
The unfortunate man was idei. ti
lled as Saito of Makawao 49 ye irs
of age who was last seen on Nov.
22nd fishing in the Maliko stream.
On Sunday Nov. 2 ith the Maka
wao police searched in vain for the
missing man and on tho following
Monday and Tuesday parties of
his Japanese friends made unsuc
cessful attempts to find him.
Saito was rather peculiar. He
did not work for a living except
the catching of a few fish in the
fresh water streams of Makawao.
Ho somehow managed to live by
borrowing small sums of money
from his friends-and acquaintances
and running in dobtto stores. He
made an unsuccessful attempt at
suicide a short time ago, the bul
let from his pistol grazing his scalp
llo frequently stated that he wish
ed to die so it is possible that his
death was a voluntary one. The
more probable explanation how
over is that while under the in
fluence of drink be slipped into the
watei and that his death was ac
cidental as was decided by the
coroner's jury hold by Deputy
Sheriff Edgar Morton on the 4 th.

Over one hundred persons have

The parents live in Ilamoa near

of the whereabouts of the child can
