Death on island of Hawaii. A message has been received in Laurencekirk from Hawaii reporting the death in Papaikau of Mr William Silver, a native of the town, at the age of sixty-seven. Mr Silver went to Hawaii forty years ago and was manager of the Onomea Sugar Company, one of the most flourishing concerns in the island. The death of Mr Silver breaks a link in a chain of splendidly successful Scottish farmers, who, by their energy, ability, and skill, had created in Hawaii a colony of plantations which show, by their great returns, the constant care and knowledge of those men who had them in their care. Not the least of these fine agricultural workmen was Mr William Silver. Pedro Elazer Racelis, pastor-missionary of the Filipino Congregational Church of Papaikau, said the death of Mr Silver was a shock to the membership of the church and to the entire Filipino community of Onomea Sugar Co. It was through his magnanimous nature that the Filipinos of Papaikau were able to worship in such a dignified church. Mr Silver was a brother of Mr George Silver, 60 High Street, Laurencekirk, and Mr James Silver, Johnston Street, Laurencekirk.
