A coroners' inauest was held in the
case on Wednesday of this week, at
Hamakuapoko, the scene of the piti

the baby's death had been caused by
Plansei's shot, insisted that a clause
demanding his punishment be insert

this finding is as follows:
"That Flora Gouveia came to her
death throush a bullet passing thro
ugh the brain causing meningitis,
pistol being fired by one Fernandez
I'lansei with no intent to murder.
Furthermore that he be punished for

carelessness in discharging this gun
promiscuously." The coroner's jury
