sisting an olllcor who was trying to

Sulton on a clinruo of assault and
battery. Sheriff Baldwin attempted
to board the vessel and met forcible

armed and equipped themselves as
tho law directs. Thoso of them who
could not get guns, or did not know
how to load them, took along cork
screws with which to draw blood.
Thus reinforced, Sheriff Baldwin
boarded the Honoipuaud found tho
mate concealed iu the hold, and the
mnto, captain and one sailor were
lodged iu jail. The Honoipu had
cleared and was just ready to sail,
and tho detention will come rather
