warrant charging his assailants
with assault and battery. The
case was set for Monday morning
at nine o'clock. It rained Monday
morning and Ah Yau not wanting
a wetting waited till the rain was
over before leaving for the court
Meanwhile his honor ami the
County Attorney having the de
fandants on hand waited for the
complai ning witness until almost
an hour after the time set for the
trial. Thinking that Ah Yau may
have changed his ideas on the sub
ject, the County Attorney entered
a nolle pros and got out a bench
warrant for Ah Yau, who was
brought in later. After explaining
to the court that he did not want
to gel wet, as his reason for not ap
pearing in time he was let off With
a reprimand. On seeing the two
defendants laughing over his dis
comfiture he wanted to swear out
another warrant against them,
which was properly und firmly re
fused. The frivolities of 4dady fair are
said to be at the bottom of it all.

Much interest is manifested
among intelligent Japanese on
Maui over the agitation headed by
Mr. Makino of the N'ijipu Jiji for
an increase of wages for Japanese
laborers on the plantations.
The rise in prices of beef and
other necessaries are referred to as"
reason enough for the demand,
but they do not favor disturbances
which may create public opinion
unfavorable to the Japanese.
