Sheriff Crow-ell, who went to
Hawaii in search of Fred L- Smith,
after failing to locate his man in
Honolulu, wirelessed on Wednes
day that his mission had been suc
cessful. Smith, as he gave his
name at the First National Bank,
where he passed a bogus check for
$25, is the man. who also posed as

in an effort to get another check
cashed. Sheriff Crowell located
his party on the Kona coast of the
Big Island. He is expected back
with him today.
