THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY. OCTOBER 19, 1915,
The Kohala Midget tells the
f blowing story of the murder of a
, school girl in that district:
On Fridry last about 12:30, Har
riet Kunane, aged 16, daughter of
former deputy-sheriff Kunane, left
the Kohala Girls' School, where
Hie was a day student in dress
making, to walk to her home,
about a mile and a half distant on
the government road. Her mother
was attending a meeting of the
Woman's Society ot the church,
and did not reach home until about
four or five. She found Harriet
had not returned, and was uneasy,
os the girl was always prompt and
never went anywhere else without
telling her mother beforehand.
Mrs. Kunane soon went to the
Manse to tell her anxiety, and an
attempt was made to telephone the
deputy-sheriff, but he was gone
from the court house and could not
be reached at first. Other search
ers started out at once and with
lanterns Wainaia gulch was ex
plored on both sides of the road,
Harriet's mother calling her name,
but id vain.
While the police were getting
word and rallying, a messenger in
a car went to Halawa Gulch to see
Mr. Seu, the baDk clerk and learn
ed that check3 Harriet carried to
her mother had not been present
ed at the bank. He went on to
Tom's moving picture show, at
Halawa, aud had the disappear
ance of the girl announced; mean
while "Central" had apprised
everyone who had a telephone.
The search proceeded through
the night, on the theory that the
girl must have been assaulted per
haps killed and her body hidden
in the bushes, cane, or somewhere.
The police, with the assistance of
Supervisor and Hiram Naipo, Ly
man Perry Rev's. U. Cho Ping,
Oshiro, and other volunteers,
searched every canefield road and
vacant building. The theory proved
to be the true one, for a little after
12 a. m. Hiram Naipo, the senior
patrol leader of troop No. 1, Bov
Scouts, and Mr. Oshiro, entering
a road in Kohala canefield, about
half wav between Union Church
and the Kunane home, found her
hat. They called to the others
iear, They soon found the checks
and receipts lying, on the ground,
the former bloody, and 126 feet
from the government road, back a
few feet from the canefield road,
between the rows of cane, lay her
body, as though she hud been
pushed with considerable force
backwards and to a prostrate posi
tion. Her clothing was disarranged
Dr. Bond was summoned, aiid
found that she had been dead- for
some time, her bodv being cold
and stiff. She was left there until
daylight, when a coroner's jury
could view the remains on the
scene of the murder.
Everything lends plausibility to
the supposition that she had been
enticed, or more probably fright
ened, into the canefield road and
then assaulted and cut with a
knife. Her neck, side, hands all
bore cuts. Hei windpipe was sev
ered, and she must have died in a
few moments; but not, a s the
rumpled hair, the condition of her
clothing and the twisted muscles
ot her arms and hands show, until
he lnd struggled violently, pro
.Qhly trying to seize or ward off
the blows of the knife with her
Viands. There were said to b e
bloody marks on her dress where
a knife had been wiped.
The community is shocked and
' saddened b y the awful tiagedv
that has befallen one of its inno
cent school girls, o n the mam
highway, in broad daylight. The
first clue that the police found was
the statement of Ishikawa, a Japa
nese auto driver, that, about 1 p
m. he was going inside, and saw a
Filipino, wearing a black coat,
standing at the entrance to the
plantation road, on the the mauka
side of the roid, He stopped and
asked him if he wanted a car and
received a negative answer. About
the same time he saw Harriet Ku
nane a short distance away, ap
proaching her home. Harriet's
brother Joe is also said to remem
ber seeing a man standing there,
ai he came out of the canefield on
tltL makai side of the road with
grass tor the horse. That was the
last seen of poor Harriet Kunane
until as stated above, her body was
found cold and stark in the canefield.
