About 9:30 last evoning-Tokaor

employ of Judge Wilcox, and an
other of his countrymen wont
fishing with a number of natives
off the beach iu front of the
Wilcox and Dolo premises near
Diamond Head. The water iB
generally smooth thoro and not
over three feot deep and tho fish
ing is nearly always good. It
was not so last night, and tho
natives sucoested poiuc farther
round th,e point. They did so,

Horo tho surf was breakmg badly
at times but the two Japaueso
thought thoy could vouturo as far
as tho natives. Soon a succession
of heavy breakers camo along and
tho two Japaueso lost thoir
footing and were swept
under. Two of tho natives
wont to their assistance
and got hold of them, but another
wave camo along and turned tho
wholo party over and ovor. The
native who had Takaoka in hand
last his hold on him and for a
time had all ho could do to save
himself, as the water had washed
his shirt over his head and ho had
bard work to disontanglo himself.
When ho did so he looked round
for the Japanese but could not seo
him. Tho other native was a
powerful man and strong swim
mer and suoceeded in getting the
other Japanese into shallow water
in a half drowned condition.
Some of the party continued to
search for' Takaoka whilo others
went ashore and gave the alarm.
Judge Wilcox and a number of
others put off in canoes and
searched for the body until 2:30
a. m. when the moon went down
and the search had to be given up.
This morning at daylight it was
resumed and in a fow minutes tho
body was fouud near the place
whore the Japaueso was lost.
J ndgo Wilcox came into town with
a number of tho witnosses and
reported tho circumstances to the
Marshal, who deoided that an in
quest was unnecessary.
The drowned man had beon in
