WELLINGTON, November 12. The strange disappearance of a young man from Silveratream is causing considerable excitement in the Hutt district. The latest developments still further strengthen suspicion that Hawthorne was a victim of foul play. The police made another search of the bush yesterday, but the quest was fruitless. The police think that if Hawthorne is alive in another part of the colony he would have communicated with them before this. .. . Later News is just received that the body of the missing man Hawthorne- has been found buried about 100 yds from the camp at’ Silveratream. There are no particulars as to whether the body shows signs of violence.
