Japanese Killed By
Motorcar At Lahaina
, Haneberg, Driver, Held Not To
Blame Grand Jury Exonerates
Him Boy At Camp 5 Rendered
Three auto accidents have occurred
on Maui during the past week, one of
which resulted in the death of one
man. Both of the others resulted in
hospital cases, but of minor serious
ness. The fatality was of an old Japanese
named I. Kimura, who was struck by
a car driven by Eugene Haneberg,
sugar boiler of the Olowalu plantation.
He sustained a fractured tkull and
died a few hours later. The accident
occurred in Lahaina, almost opposite
the Lahaina hospital. Haneberg was
driving towards Kaanapli when the
Japanese, who was walking in the
same direction, stepped into the
street to pass around an automobile
standing on the crossing at an inter
secting road. He stepped directly in
front of the approaching car, which
he evidently did not see.
The matter was presented this week
to the grand jury, which however, re
turned no bill against the driver. The
police say the accident was unavoid
able and that Haneberg was not to
blame. The victim of the accident was
a laborer on the plantation, .n,d was
(H years of age.

ment, received by Maj. W. E. Bal, on
Wednesday evening, brought ti e dis
tressing news of the death of his son,
Archibald Bal, from pneumonia The
death occurred in a hospital in
Charleston, S. C, where presumably
the boy was taken from his ship after
he became ill. It Is understood that
the remains will be brought home for
burial here in Wailuku.
Archibald Ba! had passed his 22nd
birthday on September 10th last. He
joined the navy a year ago last June,

Wm. Cockett, Jack Vivas, and W illiam
Assigned to the U. S. S. Alert the
youtlg man has been in Atlantic wa
ters for months engaged in combatting
the Hun submarine menace. It was
doubtless in line of this duty that he
was stricken with the disease that
cost him his life.
Archibald Bal was an athlete of
some note, and he had a wide circle
of friends in Maui who will learn of
his passing with deepest regret. He
had advanced in the navy to position
of storekeeper, 3rd class, and had
fore him a bright fulure.

her arrival a few days previously.

mauka cottage with Mrs. Keith were
