Body of Mormon
The body of Mr. Kirkman the
Mormon Elder, who lost his life in
Alelele gulch, was found on Sunday,
tle 15th; one. arm was broken nnd
the head was badly . bruised but
otherwise the face and body present
ed a most natural apiKiiranee.with
out any signs of decomposition.
This was rather surprising not only
localise, the body had leei) in the
water several days, but also lieeause
of the terrible plunge down the
water-fall of about 2f0 feet. The
steep Mill over which the Alelele
water drops is just 248 feet 6 inches
by recent measurement.
Because of superstitious feeling it
was difficult to persuade any Ha
waiian in the vicinity, of Kaupo or
Kipahulu to search . for the dead
man in the gloomy depths at the
bottom of the fall, but at . last a
part Tahitian undertook the grue
some task and a reward'of $150
was presented , him for several
descents. The first time he dis
covered the mule floating on the
surface and on Sunday: he found
the remains of the young man. It
took from 10 o'clock in the morn
ing to six in the afternoon to g-t
the body out from among rocks of
Uie stream and float it to the sea.
It is a matter of congratu
lation tllnt instead of Wing de
voured by sharks that Kirkman
received .a Christian burial that
same day at Kipahulu. When
found, every stitch of clothing had
been torn from the. laxly by the
force of the water. After securing
the body the men endeavored to
bring it up the cliff over which the
dead man and his horse had plung
ed; but found that was impossible.
They therefore let the body down
over a second cliff, and earned it
around the edge of the mountain to
the open Bea, where they finally
succeeded in getting up the coast to
Kipahulu. The lesson taught by
the sad mishap is that a wire-bridge
should be constructed ,by the auth
thorities over this dangerous cross

The following is hy Mr. Ayres
great and good friend, Will Sabin,
writing in the Paradise of the Paci
A letter from liOiidon .from a
former Honolulu writer now visit
ing (hat town recounts some strange
experiences. It seems that, form
erly a Iondoner, on his arrival
from the Sandwich Islands, don-
cherknow, he was welcomed Ut the
old country with considerable of a
banquet, Guildhall possibly lieing
used for the purpose. Wine bottled!
in Glassware and corked in Cork,
was served, and then Mr. Ayres was
called upon to make a speech :
Gentlemen, aloha kakol Not
having the tongue of a Hanawaki,
nor the persistent eloquence of a
Harry Murray I shall confine my
few long remarks to what I have to I
say." . '
., He was asked if this Hanawaki
was a King of the Cannibal Islands.
"No" said Ohule, "he's worse
than that he's a Supervisor.''-
Continuing, when so rudely inter
rupted, Herb said: "From the
tip of that top from which Cap.
Cook so ingloriously tumbled, yclept
the N. Polo, to the most extreme
antithesis of the same, there's no
spot on earth like Hawaii, 'specially
Honolulu" (Loud Cheers) "and I
want to tell you" (More Cheers)

Suddenly, amid bursts of ap
plause the audience thought he
was going mad, but, when he ex
plained that he was talking Ha
waiian, the policeman was sent out
of the room and told to wait t until
called, v Tliis gave old baldy a new
start. ' '
"Hawaii's a great -place," he
.'said "and before I came away I
