Hawaiian Boy Killed
. By Stray Bullet
Makuhant Punllcl Manimani, a
Hawaiian boy aged 19, was accl-
dentally killed while hunting last
Tuesday morning In the Kahana
valley, a branch of Olokele. He
was shot accldentlly by his uncle.
Robert .Nawai, who was hunting
with him. '
According to Nawal's story the
two men were goat hunting and
Blghted quite a largo band of goats
on ono of the ridges running out
of the valley. Nawal? told the boy
that ho would climb tho ridge and
get behind tho goats, while tho boy
Btaycd about whore -ho was, and
Nawal .would drivo tho goats to
ward him. This was agreed upon,
Nawai then climbed the hill be
hind tho goats and shot one, Part
of tho band ran down the hill to
ward the spot where Nawal had
left tho boy. Tho rest o them ran
straight down tho rldgo at about
right angles to tho course takon
by tho others.
Nawai fired several shots at this
band, but failed to hit any.
Ho then started down the hill to
wards tho spot where ho had left
his nephew and ho wondered at
the time that ho had heard no
shots, as tho goats had practically
passed over tho spot where ho had
left him. When ho arrived there,
Manimani was nowhere in sight,
Ho called out for him and watf an
swered by a hail high up on tho
ridge. Ho climbed up and found
tho boy sitting on the ground 'hold
ing his side. Manimani told him
that ho was shot and Nawai thought
at first he was fooling, but soon
saw that the boy was telling tho
-Instead of staying down on the
side hill as ho had planned with
his uncle, tho boy had climbed the
hill and wajted up on the ridge
when Nawai fired at tho goats
that had run down tho ridge ho had
hit Manimani in the' abdomen.
, Nawal tried to carry the boy
down tho hill but tho boy com
plained that it hurt him too much
so he was forced to leave him
while he went for help.
He went to tho boy's home which
Is a kuliana in Olokele valley. He
returned with tho boy's father and
they brought along a horse to car
ry tho boy homo.
The time consumed in the trip
for help had taken about four
hours. When they reached tho
spot where Nawal had left him the
boy was barely conscious. Ho told
tho father that tho shooting was
an accident. The father and Na
wal then started to carry him down
to the horse, but ho died before
they reached it.
A coroner's inquest was held in
Waimoa Wednesday evening' and
tho coroner's jury brought in a ver
dict of accidental death.

within the next month. The ware

CANDIDATES APPOINTED TO
ATTEND TERR. CONVENTION
Last Saturday ovenlng the Repub
lican clubs of tho different precincts
of the island with the exception of

Kaulukou and S. K. Kaeo; Kllauea:
L. D. Larsen.
Kawaihau has no loss than nine
candidates in tho field. This will
necessitate an election, which will

Sam Kaaliu, Sam Kelliinoi, J. F.

KINAU ON RUN AGAIN
Tho S. S. Kinau, Captain Greg
ory, arrived at Ahuklni last Thurs
day morning with freight for Lihuo
plantation. Sho took on a load of
sugar and left for Honolulu Friday
This is tho Kinau's first trip slnco
her complete overhauling, and she
had a very difficult time of it tak
ing on sugar with the kona storm
sending huge breakers into tho har
bor. If it had not been for the 100
feet of breakwater it would have
been Impossible for her to havo
come alongside tho wharf.
The fact that the Kinau was ablo
to como within a few feet of tho
landing and load sugar from tho
conveyor in tho storm that was rag
ing Thursday, seems to guarantoo a
safe harbor In any weather when
tho breakwater is extended to its
total of 250 feot.
