NUMHER 4 if If ilf LOST ON HALEAKALA FOUR NEARLY PERISH Honolulu Teachers Make Way To Ocean Through Keanae Gap Unprecedented Trip Four Days With Little Food Awful Experience Started To Walk Through Crater And Lost Way Lost in the crater of Haleakala and in the dense Jungle on the windward side of the mountain for 4 days, a party of Honolulu school teachers, three women and one man, finally made their way down into Keanae valley at 8 o'clock last night. They were so exhausted that they were un able to stand after falling in their tracks when human habitations were reached. The party consisted of Henry L. Abell, Miss Hazel Abell, Miss Edna Lochridge, Miss Elizabeth Appleton." All except the last named are teach ers in Mills School, Honolulu. Miss Appleton is a daughter of U. S. Dis trict Attorney S. C. Huber. Terrible Experience That It -would "be 'possible rd"rariy human being to come out of the cra tpr through the Keanae valley, as this party did, would have been con sidered absolutely impossible by any one who knows that part of the is land. So far as can be learned there is no record of its having been done even by. natives inlden days. . . The party missed the home' of George W. Weight ad'bthef houses in the upper part 1 of 4h6 valley, and traveled . clear to the lower village several miles further, before they came to a Chinese where they dropped down utterly exhausted and scarcely able to speak. Word was tel Small Hope Now Of A Civic Convention Japanese Chamber Of Commerce Votes Against Plan For This Year Matter To Be Considered Next Thursday Time Now Very Short Owing to the absence in Honolulu of Secretary D. H. Case, the meeting of the chamber of commerce, which would have been held yesterday, was continued until Thursday of next week. The most important, business to be considered will be the matter of holding the Civic Convention this fall. Mr. Case, who returned home Wed nesday night states that while the Honolulu chamber of commerce, Ad Club and Rotary Club have voted in favor of the convention, he did not find any great enthusiasm over the matter in Honolulu. The Japanese chamber of commerce, he states, has joined with Hilo and Kauai in op posing the meeting this year. Other organisations throughout the territory have not taken the trouble to express an opinion one way or the other, not having answered the committee's let ters on the subject. Secretary Raymond C. Brown, of the Honolulu chamber, while strong ly of the opinion that it is a mistake not to hold the convention, stated that it is now probably too late to get a program prepared even if it be decided to 1-old the meeting.

Here they were put to bed after giving a bare outline of their terrible experiences. None of the party, however appear to have suffered any serious injury, ami it is expected that they will be able to ride on horses the 15 miles to KaiUia this afternoon, where they will be met by an automobile this evening and brought on to Wailuku.
