Henri J.eon Verlcyo, CoininU

Hawaii, died suddenly at hii roi-
denco on Bcrotania street near
Punchbowl at eleven o'clock lint
night. The immediate cause of his
death was heart failure.
Mous. Verlcyo camo hero a little
moro than a year ago, succeeding
M. D'Anglade, who had returned
to France. His arrival caused con
siderable talk in private as well as
diplomatic circles from tho fact
that he was accredited to tho mon

Government. Mons. Vizzavona

Mons. Verlcyo was of a genial
disposition, and during his short
career hero mado many friends, by
whom his society was much enjoy

entertained them in an unostenta

manner that made him much
sought after. Among tho few
French people on tho islands he
was most popular for the reason
that ho 6eemed always to have their
