We received from J. B. Kaleihopu of Waipio the news below pertaining to the death of R. P. Kuikahi, one of the wealthy Hawaiians of Hamakua. This is what he said: In the morning of Thursday the 5th of this month, the hands of death quietly seized Robert P. Kuikahi and lead him to the other side. He leaves behind a wife, children, and crowds of intimates and friends. He was sick for three weeks while he was here in Waipio, Hamakua. HIs sickness was a chills and fever combined with acute discomfort. He was a person who was greatly loved by the people, and he was one of the wealthy of Hamakua. What a pity.
