An Affair Between
There was an outpouring of Pu-
unene Japanese over at the court
houne last Monday, and somewhere
about forty of manly young fellows
were there lounging alout, being
deeply interested in the outcome
of an affray case, between two gen
tlemenlv scions of the samurai.
Both of the gentlemen charged re
fused to testify against each other,
and ascribed the suspiciously deep
cuts to handling cane at a hurry
up uku-pau job, and the County
prosecutor nolle pross'd the case.
They were told to go and sin no
more, to take life a bit easier, and
not to overhustle themselves on
hapai ko jobs in future.
It seems the two gentlemenly
sons of Nippon had a falling out,
perhaps over a lady's eyes?-and a
greed to settle their differences in
gentlemenly way which they
did. It is said they cut and slashed
each other badly, and then agreed
to call it square and let it go at
The disabled disputants were
packed off to their quarters and
medical aid summoned to dress
the wounds. Later the plantation
police on his regular tour of ins
pection fell on them, and to him
they explained how they had hurt
themselves at a hurry up uku pau
hapai ko job by over exertions, in
handling the spike like leaves and
edge of rose bamboo cane. The hard
hearted olice man, however, was
incredulous and yanked them to
court for affray where the more
sympathetic blind lady of the
sword and scales allowed them to
go forth unsullied heroes in the
eyes of their admiring country
