Hugh Coke Killed
Ry Lightinng Flash
Was One Time Editor Of Maui News
And Had Friends All Over Terri
tory Had Been Living On Main
land For Five Years
Hugh M. Coke, for years a resident
of Maul, was killed by a bolt of light
ning in California, according to a brief
wireless message received by the Hon
olulu lodge of Elks, on Tuesday, of
which the deceased was a member.
Mr. Coko had been living in California
most of the time for the past 5 or 6
years. The news of his death came as
a shock to his many friends aU over
the territory. It is presumed that the
tragedy occurred on his ranch at Co
velo, in Mendocino county.
Hugh M. Coke was born in Tennes
see in 1870. He came to Hawaii in
1S97 and for a number of years was a
teacher in the public schools. He was
principal of the Waihee school, here
on Maui, in 1905 when he was offered
and accepted the managership of the
Maui Publishing Company and the edi
torship of the Maui News. He held
this position until May, 1910, when he
severed his connection with the pub
lishing company, and shortly after left
for the Coast where he already had
business interests. He acquired valu
able mining and oil interests. He was
generally believed to have been quite
wealthy until about a year ago when
he is known to have had some finan
cial reverses. In recent letters to
friends in Wailuku, however, he ex
pressed full belief in being again on
his feet within a few months.
Mr. Coke was a brother of Attorney
James L. Coke, of Honolulu, and is
survived by a wife and 5.children, the
oldest .being a son aged 18 years.
Fisherman Believed To
Have Fallen From Cliff
Kawika Kawao, an old Hawaiian of
Keanae, was probably drowned on
Tuesday of last week, while fishing
from the rocks near his home. When
his absence was noted and a search
instituted, no trace of him could be
found, although it was discovered
where he had been fishing. The old
man had used a rope to assist him in
celling down the cliff to the water.
This rope was found fastened at the
top of the cliff, and to the lower end
was found attached a number of fish
and some of the equipment with which
they had doubtless been taken.
It is believed that Kawao had finish
ed his fishing, and In attempting to
climb up with the a'd of hia rope,
lost his hold and fell into the sea, and
was washed away. He was 61 years
of age and quite feeble. Although he
had some relatives in Keanae, he had
no family. He came to Keanae about
5 years ago from Hawaii.
Missing Money Order
Drives Japanese Insane
Maui's missing money-order mys
tery is claimed to be responsible for
the insanity of a former Paia Japan
ese who returned to his native Nip
pon to find that his family had not
received $800 he had sent from the
Valley Island postolliee, of which
Morris Keohokalole, at present on
the Coast, is postmaster.
According to a report" received here
by the Shlnyo Maru, No. 2, Magari
Arakawa, who returned to Japan last
year, had sent home all his savings,
$800 from Paia by money-order. Ar
riving in Japan, and learning nothing
of the money, he wrote several times
to the Paia postolliee without receiv
ing any reply.
Waiting in vain for: months, so the
story runs, his friends finally came
to the conclusion that he was trying to
deceive them; that he had never sent
any money from the Hawaiian Islands.
This attitude on the part of his
friends ibis said, finally unsettled the
young man's mind.
field Auditing inter.island
H. Gooding Field has been engaged
by the public utilities commission to
make an audit of the books of the Inter-Island
Steam Navigation Company,
