About a year ago a Japanese with
long hair was seen fishing in a
stream in Kalalau valley, not far
from the house of Kelau. Inasmuch
as 'practically all bona lide residents
of the valley are known, the sus

toward this mysterious Japanese.
Moreover, h e suspects that the
prowler may be Kanenioto, a Japa

kaweli three years ago, and disap
peared. .The sheriff detailed live police
men and specials on the case and
they went into Kalalau valley Wed

the more difficult by rain, which
was almost constant.
Sheriff Rice states that the police
