were nearly miraculous.
RnTtrnal Robert Catheart. a thirteen-
year-old part-Hawaiian boy, was run

a noavy automobile on the other side
of the Nuuana Pali shortly after one
o'clock in tha afternoon. Tha ear.
which is used aa a stage between Hono
lulu and Late, waa driven by a. young
Japanese named Honda, who. waa ar
rested by Denaiy Fherlff R. W. Pavia.
and nfterwards booked at the Honolu

, The fatal accident happened between
the Pali and Kaneoha. near the lane
leading to Dr. J. 8. B. Pratt's home

Tho .police say that young Cathcart
was walking towards his home at
Kaneoha when he was run down by
tha ar ,
The rarWas going in the same direc

boy's body, , The injuries consisted of
a fractured skull, a broken left leg and
broken right arm. The boy died almost
immediately after the. 200O-lb. . auto
mobile stage passed over his body. ;
The police were told by those aboard
a truck, which passed tha boy .a few
moments before the accident that Cath
cart was walking near the grass on the
makai side of the road. They .learned
of the aeeidont through the aries of tha
Fassengers in the staga coach, whan

. The first Sunday automobile acclifeut'
happen ci I at the second curve on Bed
Jlill yesterday morning, when an au
tomobile driwu by Yui Kong turned
over. Two police officers, wio ws
just ahead of the Kong car, say this
w-us caused by the driver losing con
trol of the steering wheel.
Adeline Kong, a fifteen year old part
llawniian girl, who was riding in tke
car at the timo, received a painful'
abrasion of her right wrist, but tke
driver escaped with no other injury,
than a bad jariing and fright.
An accident very similar happened
n Manoa Vulley about four o clock
',n tho afternoon, when k Kord in which
'hree Japanese were riding turned over
tviii-e before it stopped rolling.
M. Hhimuinoto, an eighteen-year old
. Japanese, was the only one of the three
passengers hurt badly. He received an
incised scalp wound, which rcquire'd
three stitches to sew up, and .a wound
