MEETS HIS DEATH
In common with a good many
other Hawaiians, J. P. Aloh'ikcn
the well known harness maker
2;nnd upholsterer of Lihue. went
down to the shore Thursday oven
ing to fish for ala-lau'a.
An experienced fisherman li
went to that point on the rocky
coast between the outer and inner
lighthouse; known as Pukaulua, a
famous fishing hole, and was sitting
there on the edge of the same when
an unusually large swell rolled in
and swept him olf the narrow ledge
of rock and into the boiling caul
J. hence the rcceodmg surge
carried him into the open sea. In
the process he was doubtless more
or less bruised and mangled so that
he was unable to help himself effec
tivcly. William Hookano, who
was near by, heard his call and tried
to reach him with a long fishing
rod, but in the fierce surgo the
bamboo was broken to fragments
and Hookano was warned of the
futilty of throwing himself into the
sea to save his friend.
In the darkness and roar of the
l surge the unfortunate man was soon
In Memoriam J. P. Alohikea
iy tne accident a lew days ago
death took from our midst a more
than usually capable and attractive
Hawaiian who will be much missed
in the community, in a business as
well as a social way.
The deceased was 4G years of age,
born at Kaupo, Maui, where he
spent his boyhood. Ho received
his higher education at Lahaina
luna, whero ho received also his
bent toward mechanical interests
as well as a measure of facility
therein. There also his musical
gifts were cultivated. He secured
his trade training in Honolulu with
the Schumann Carriage Co. and
later with Pilipo.
no came to Kauai about, lo years
ago, and was for many years m the
employ of Mr. Rice as harness
maker and upholsterer: for three
1 or four years back ho has been con
ducting an independent business
of his own.
More even than most Hawaiians
he had a very engaging personality.
dignified, courteous, genial and
kindly, ho commended himself to
every one who new him. In addi
tion to this he was one of the very
few Hawaiians who could conduct a
business venture successfully, and
make it pay, while giving satisfac
tion. Mr. Alohikea was a man univer
sally respected, a man of character,
a strong man in the church, ready
and helpful in all church matters.
Especially was ho an indispen
sable factor in all song contests,
concerts, hoikes etc since he was
an excellent musician and a fine
Ho leaves a widow and three
daughters to mourn his loss.
Haena School Removal
It has long been evident that the
Haena school shouldn't be in Hno-.
na but in Wainiha, where the most
of the children are; and it has long
been tho intention to move it. This
has finally been done and now
thesclux 1 buildings and'eottage are
pleasantly located on tho flat just
beyond tho Wainiha Valley, at tho
beginning of what it generally call
ed the Haena Flats but which is
really Wainiha. It will be much
more convenient for tho children
and also more convenient for tho
teachors who will not feel quite so
far out of tho world now.
