forty-eight hours, he was unable to get

market place has been a Chinaman, by
the name of Charlie Akum, n sea cook
and successful crab fisherman, who
found a livelihood in catching the wary
crustacean, and has not been seen since
the heavy blow preceding the last wet
spell. There have been reports from
time to time on the water front of the
two men having turned up on the Puna
coast, but all such rumors have been
without foundation, and it is now pretty
