JnpnnoKO Woman Killed by 11 Ittina
A rnnnwny enr lailencd with water nt
Cniup No. 4, Wninken plantation, resulted
In the instantaneous death of a Japanese
woman nliotit eiuht o'clock Saturday
morning. Owing to the continued drouth
it has been the custom each mornlinr lo
haul over the plnntntion rnllrond severnl
carloads or rrcsh water for the upper
camps. A enr with n tnnk of water would
be dropped nt each ennip, care being
taken to sec that the brakes were securely
set or the wheels blocked. On Mondnv
morning Hie locomotive left n cnrlond of
water standing nt Cnmp 4, then proceeded
lo Camp 5, where another car was left,
the train crew continuing to the fields.
There Is n steep grade intervening be
tween the two enmps, and n Portuguese
lad, in charge of the enr stnnding nt
Camp 5, says that the jostling of the
wnler iu the tnnk cnused n loosenlm? of
the brakes. The enr started on the down
grade, nnd when he found the enr was
gaining iu speed, he jumped for his life
nnd the runaway car went boundlnif
down the track lo Camp 4, a milcdlstaiit,
where was standing the other enr und
tank of wntcr. A number of the women
engaged In drawing water from the car nt
Cnmp 4, saw the danger nnd rnn screnm-
ing to places 0 safety. One woman, Yo
shidn Tome, who is said to be slightly
deaf, wns passing iu the rear of the stand
ing car with two tins of water, when the
collision occurred. She was knocked
down, the air passing over her body kill
I ig her instantly, one of the wheels cleav
ing the top part of her skull. She was
married but had no 'children. Deoutv
Sheriff Fetter immediately repaired to
the scene and linpanuelled a iurv. who.
nfter investigating the facts rendered a
verdict of accidental death.
Successful Small hariulntr.
Q. II. llerry, the commercial man. who
formerly resided ill Hilo. has been mak-
ing 11 tour of the island In the interests of
his Commercial nnd Husiness Agency.
While here, speaking of the opportunities
of small farming he said, "I do not see
why a white man cannot be i.s success
ful as the Japanese at small farming.
Over iu Maui, in the Knla district, the
Jap is fairly scintillating as a small furm
cr. There nre more than n hundred
Japanese engaged iu raising corn, potn-
toes, chickens and farm produce, which
they sell to advantage to the plantations
and white residents. They are about to
embark iu the castor oil business, nnd
many have planted trees, from which
rubber plantation nt Nahiku has been
started with Maul and Honolulu capital
from which the parties expect to obtain
large returns. Whetcer rubber would
grow with profit on this island. I have
no doubt. Of course, there Is n wait of
fourld six years before the first cron.
but when once started a rubber plantation
is n paying concern, I am informed."
