London, Mar. 2H. 4 a. m. Again
there is a persistent rumor that
Mafekiug lias been relieved. It is
even asserted that the War Oflioo
has received a dispatch positively
announcing the relief, but that publi
cation of it is withheld because tin-
form of the message admitted the
possibility of a mistake. The War
Oflieo. however, savs there is no con
firmation of the rumor and that no
further news on the subject is at
hand. No attention is paid in any
ouartcr to the wild Doer rumors of
Commandant Oliver's victory over
General Gataere, which are only de
signed to revive the drooping spirits
f the burghers.
It seems certain that Mafeking's
only chance lay m relief by tin

that Colonel Bladen-Powell is still

Jcprnes-; Strike ot Lahalnr.
Aliout six hundred Japanese are
on a strike at Lahaina and abwut
two hundred at Olowahf. They are
all asuemblod in the" Court House
yard nt Lahainr, and the Lahaina
Japanese also have a place fortified
back of tho town near the Church.
Manager Hanr.el org states that
the only known cause of coinphv.nl
.vhich the Oiowalu Japanese have is
that they a.-e not paid oil promptly
on the last day of the pmptli. It is
a physical impossibility to do this,
however as several days are neces
sarily consumed by the bookkeeper
in making up the pay ro'l.
Seveal causes also led up to the
present troub'e. The Japanese
hive wanted an indemnify for the
two Japanese who were killed by tho
Tailing of a chimney, some some time
since, and they have also made some
complaint about tbeir quarters.
Tho strike of the Lahaina Japan
ese was probably caused by the con
viction of a Jr. paw se on Tuesday last
for having assaulted a luna with a
ane knife and cut t woserious gaslics
in his hand.
