TRAGEDY ENACTED IN
While returning in a row boat from an excursion trip to Cocoanut
Islam! last Sunday afternoon, Miss Myra Todd was drowned in plain
view of a score of people standing on the Waiakca river bridge.
In company with George N. Hay, her ten year old sister, Sarah, and
Amy Williams, a playmate of the latter, Miss Todd went to Cocoanut
Island to spend the afternoon. On Sundays this is a favorite resort for
picktiickcrs and bathing parties.
On attempting to return to the boat lauding up the Wainkca river, it
was found that a high sea was running, the swells breaking at the mouth
of the river. Mr. Day at the oars found difficulty i controlling the
boat against the strong outward current of the river and as he traversed
about half way along the piling whicli forms a jelty for the stream, a
heavy comber from the rear caught the frail cr.tft turning it half around.
A second wave dashed over the occupants, instantly capsizing the boat.
The water ordinarily is not very deep ot this point and both Miss Todd
and Mr. Day were cxpeit swimmers. Miss Todd wore a 1 ght ragland
coat at the time of the accident, which

her companion to save the Williams child and she would look after her
In the meantime, their cries for help had been heard and some of the
idlers on the Waiakea bridge ran to secure a boat and a gasoline launch.
The overturned craft was rapidly drifting into the bay and it is supposed
that Miss I odd, relying on her strength and swimming powers, attempted
to strike off for the rocky shore not fifty feet distant. Her sister heard
her cry, "Let go of the boat" and felt a tug at her skirt, when she dis
appeared in the water. When last

she was dragged under by the rushing
could no longer baffle, with the waves. Mr. Day and the Williams girl
who were clinging desperately to the other side of the boat were not
aware that she was gone until some time afterwards. Sarah Todd lost
her hold of the vessel and was rescued by Antone Oliviera, a Portuguese
who swam to her assistance. She was weak and half drowned when
brought ashore having swallowed a quantity of the sea water. Day and
the Williams girl were picked up by a Japanese fishing boat which went to
their rescue some distance from the scene of the accident. Both were
exhausted from their struggles and half dead.
William A. Todd, father of the drowned girl, was one of the first to
arrive on the scene having been riding in the vicinity of Waiakea when
he heard the cries for assistance, little realizing that it was his own
daughter's voice calling for help. He jumped into a boat and hastened to
the rescue, but too late to save his daughter whose life had been given
up to the power of the sea. No blame attaches to Mr. Day for the sad
tragedy, but wonder is expressed that with so many idlers on the bridge,
none offered to come to the assistance of the unfortunate ones.
A diligent search for the body ,13 made of the bay and sea shore
throughout Sunday night without success, but early Monday morning
the tide brought the remains ashore near the railroad trestle, where they
were found about 6 o'clock by the searchers. The funeral took place at
3 o'clock Monday afternoon from the Episcopal Church of which she has
recently become a member. An impressive funeral service was read by
Rev. W. C. Stewart at the church and at the grave. The church was
crowded by a large gathering of friends and the Hilo band led the
funeral cortege to the cemetary.
Myra Keonaona Todd was born in Hilo, August 8, 1883, the third
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Win. A. Todd. She attended the Union
School until the summer of 1898, when she entered the Hilo Telephone
office. She has been a faithful and intelligent employee and the most
experienced and capable woman in that office. She,had a host of fiicnds
and acquaintances, who were shocked to learn of her sudden death when
just blossoming into womanhood.

Directed to Survey Hilo Harbor.
Honolulu, Nov. 24. Lieut. J. R. Slattery, U. S. Army, has been
directed by the War Department to proceed with the survey of Hilo
harbor and make an estimate of cost of construction of a breakwater.
Engineer Slattery heretofore has only made a preliminary examination
of the needs of a breakwater, and upon his report the War Department
officials seek accurate data. It is estimated that the construction will
cost a million and a quarter dollars. The survey will be completed and
a report sent to Washington about January 1st.

The Sultan Becomes Defiau;.
Constantinople, Nov. 27. The Porte has rejected the proposals of
the powers for the international control of the finances of Macedonia.
An allied fleet arrived in The Piraeus, the harbor of Athens, day-be-fore-yesterday.
Unless the Sultan recedes from his position energetic
measures are likely to be taken acainst him and they may sieze the harbor
and customs of several islands off the west coast of Asia Minor. It is
believed that the Sultan's refusal to entcitain the proposals of the Pow
ers is based on the failure of the Kaiser to join in the demonstration against
the Porte, and that he is expecting the support of Germany.
