plantation. The assault was made
on the stable boss at Kaanapali
who was knocked down and some
what severely bruised; other Jap
anese learning of the trouble struck.
Manager Scrimger learning of the
difficulty ordered the men to the
oflico to be paid off.
On arriving at the office the strik
ers found the mill, which is just
across the tracks from the office,
They tried to get the mill men to
walk out, and because the hands
were not as rapid as the strikers
wished they stoned the mill break
ing the glass in the windows.
Rreport was immediately sent to
Sheriff Baldwin and at 4:30 a.m. the
Sheriff accompanied by Company
"I" N. G. II. were on their way
over to render such assistance and
protection as was necessary. They
were stationed in the Court House.
By this time the entire colony of la
borers, 1400 strong, were on a strike
and demanding all kinds of unrea
sonable concessions. No further
demonstrations were made until
Saturday when the strikers gathered
at the Court, House and toward
midnight become so excited that it
was deemed expedient to call fur
ther men and arms and a hurry
call for two hundred men was sent
to Wailuku and Puunene. Mana
ger Baldwin, despatched the Leslie
Baldwin to Honolulu with mes
sages to the Governor and High
Sheriff, stating the conditions and
suggesting assistance be sent from
Inasmuch as the High Sheriff
had been previously communicated
with and the Kinau and Claudine
had brought further details, Com
pany "F," 40 men Captain John
son, comic anding, the signal corps
with a Colts field piece consisting
of Privates Guy Livingston, Sam
Walker, Fred Angus, and Liout
Dougherty; a detachment of 48
picked police with Captain Parker
were sent over on the Kinau arriv
ing at Lahaina about 11:00 p. m.
The armed force was now made
up of 170, comprised of the follow

Aside from tho above the planta

out on a moments notice.
Saturday night after tho hoisting
of tho Star and Stripes on tho
Courthouso tho laborers were dis
persing to their various camps, a
crowd went to tho house of the Jap
anese contractor Kyonoga who has
been a thorn in tho flesh of tho day
laborers, with tho intention of do
ing him up. The plantation learn
ing of their intention had him and
his family spirited away before tho
arrival of the laborers. When they
arrived at tho house they found
men on guard around it, but they
attempted to get access and got
rowdy. When tho guardE resisted all
tho men who were oi their way
home heard the noise and gathered
together at the scene. Finally the
crowd increased and a regular viot
ensued, making it necessary to or
der a charge and firing which caus
ed the death of one and the injur
ing of three of the rioters.
This chargeseemed to put a quietus
on the strikers who hurried to their
quarters and no attempts at vio
lence were made, although trouble
was anticipated when the burial of
the dead Japanese was held Sunday
afternoon and again at the Monday
Monday morning at daylight
the troops, police and signal corps
moved up to the Mill and guards
were thrown out around the Mill
The Koreans and Chinese field
hands after some persuasion and
assurance by Manager Scrimger
backed up by Captain Parker that
they would be protected, went to
work and although they were ap
proached by Japanese to quit work,
thqy stuck to their post and no vio
lence was offered.
Secretary S. Mori and Mr., Ya
maguchi representing Consul Saito,
who arrived on the Kinau held a
conference with delegates from the
strikers ranks and learned their
side of the story and what demands
they would make, the following of
which are the more important ones,
but by no means all:
That tho laborers shall not be
struck by lunas.
Wages to be increased two dol
lars per month right through.
Wages to be paid not later than
the tenth of the month.
Three more water pipes in tho
More firewood and distribution

Time of Hanawai limited do not
later than 4:30 p. m.
Dismissal of four lunas.
Investigation of the killing Sat
Whenever a laborer was to leave
the plantation he was to bo paid
that same day and not be compell
ed to wait the regular pay day.
Immediately following this con
ference which lasted well into
the afternoon another meeting was
held in the camp quarters between
tho plantation representatives Mr
Klamp and Manager Scrimger; tho
representatives of Consul Saito and
some twenty delegates from the
rue conierence was held in an
upper council room of tho camp,
whilo tho building and camp
grounds wero black with tho strik
ers. Aside from those abovo men
tioned as present were High Sheriff
Henry, and Captain bam Johnson
and aido who acted as stenographer.
As the meeting was rather long
drawn out and no apparent headway
towards a sottloment was to bo had,
word wttB sent to Captain Parker
and tho militia to hold thomsolvos
in readiness should there bo any
bvort action on tho part of tho
finally about o:ju p. m. an un
derstanding was had, Managor
benmger stipulating that ho would
meot thoir demands on tho wator,
firewood, pay day clauses, would
discharge Kyonoga and tho luna
who was responsible for tho trouble
and concede one or two other min
An adjournment was then taken
until :00 p. in. to allow the dele
