    SHOT WHILE GETTING THROUGH A WIRE FENCE,
    Inspector J. J. Cassells received a telegram from Constable Cummings, of Whakatane, that George Daulton, a settler, had been found dead on his farm at Owakotoia, about four miles from Whakatane, on Saturday night. The deceased left his home on a shooting expedition about 9.30 on Saturday morning, taking with him a double-barrelled shot gun. The deceased not having returned home late that night, a, search party went out, and about 11.30 p.rn. he was found dead, with his gun by his side, close to a wire fence. The deceased, George Michael Daulton, was single, aged 34, and was the fourth son of Mrs Daulton, of Manutuke. For the past 12 months he had resided near Taneatua. Mr. Joseph Daulton left Gisborne by car yesterday for Owakatoia, and the body is to be conveyed to Manutuke today. At the evening service at St. Mary’s Church, yesterday, the Rev. Father Lane referred to the sad death of the late Mr. Daulton. His mother, Father Lane said, had experienced a great deal of trouble during the .last few years, two of her sons having paid the supreme sacrifice in the great war. The news of. the sad fatality had cast a gloom over the district, the deceased being widely known and respected.
