Demaofues Under the above heading the Pacific Commercial
and Consuls. Advertiser has the following to say editorially
which is so much to the point that, we give the same like spnee in
"It is about time that the Tokio government made itself familiar
wir.li the causes of attack upon its Consul-General hereby a section
of the local Japanese community. Mr. Saito, the predecessor of
Mr. Uyeno, an estimable gentleman and a respected official, was
recalled to Tokio simply and solely, as we have been informed, be
cause of the complaints made about him by his countrymen in
Hawaii. Those complaints, as some of our readers must remem
ber, were inspired by the very men who now called themselves
the High Wage Association. Then they call themselves some
thing else; and their business had to do with immigration and
emigration. These men wanted to control the Consul-General and
when he refused to be led by the nose they raised such a hue and
cry, accusing him of "incompetency'' and the like, that the Tokio
government recalled him. That it was a bitter injustice to Consul
General Saito and an unmerited triumph for the conspiritors was
felt by every outsider who knew the facts.
Precisely this sort of campaign is being made by the same men
against Mr. Saito's successor. Mr. Uyeno was a fine official so
long as the Makino hui thought it could get something out of him
in aid of the strike. He was waited on with utmost respect, and
his good offices sought; but the moment he issued his address
urging the strikers to stay on the plantations and resume their
work and to beware of had guides, Makino and his friends turned
on him snarling, like a pack of wolves. He is now declared ''in
competent" and "untrustworthy.' He is called bad names and
insulted in print and to his face. Sooner or later the ignorant
Japanese masses will echo the cry and the same pressure will be
brought on Tokio to recall him that was exercised in the case of
Although the Consular affairs of Japan are not our business,
we do not hositate to say that, in the delicate work of keeping the
local Americans and Japanese from the open ruptures the Makinos
are forever trying to create, such men as Saito and Uyeno are
needed. If ever a fanatical, labor leading and demagogical Consul-General
came here, to represent the interesis of Japan, there
would be no chance to restore the harmony which, until lately,
had been unbroken for many years. It is such official, however,
that the Japanese agitators in Honolulu have long beenseekng."
Would Manufacture At the public meeting nextweek of the
Awamura. Liquor License board of Maui tne ques
tion of whether or not a liquor license shall be granted to the Oki
nawa Liquor Company will be consideied.
We understand that the company has secured a two acre tract
of land near the Maui Soda and Ice Works and intends to manu
facture awamura a liquor similar to okolehao. This liquor is made
of rice and it is the intention of the company to use the spent rice
for pig feed. We understand that a stong protest will be-made
against the issuance of a license by a holder of real estate adjacent
to the property on which it is proposed to manufacture this liquor
and keep a wholesale pig sty.
It is certainly within the province of the board to take into con
sideration the rights of property holders in the matter of granting
or refusing liquor licenses and this matter should be thoroughly
gone into before decisive steps are taken in the premises.
Our law makers put the license fee down to five dollars per an
num for a fifth class license for the reason that this might give an
impetus to the growing of grapes and furnish a market for the
products of the small farmer. '
As there was no market for this class of produce in the islands
the winery at Kaupakalua proved to be of great benefit to the
farmers there. The intention of the Okinawa Liquor Company
seems to be to convert rice, a food stuff of which this territory can
not supply enough to support our present population. Into a poison
that will be of no benefit to any one except those who manufacture
and sell. There is a vast difference between the position of the
Kaupakalua Liquor Company and the position of the Okinawa

Accidents In One Night.
Honolulu, Juno 1.1. Through the
almoHt criminally careless driving of
Chauffeur Manuel Silva, automobile
nunilxr 3-18, three lives were im
perilled lant night, his machine be
ing driven full tilt into the hack of
a buggy, in which J. A. R. Vieira,
bin sister, Mrs. Vincent Fernandez,
and his little daughter were driving.
The buggy was wrecked, the horse

knocked down and dragged and the
automobile a trifle damaged. None
of the occupants of the buggy were
injured although shaken up in loby
The accident happened on the
Waikiki road, a short distance on
the town side of the Seaside Hotel,
at half past eight o'clock, and was
witnessed by a large numler of jmt
sons on a street car, waiting on the
switch ft hundred feet away. The
buggy, according to Mr. Vieira's
statement, substantiated by the
statements of spectators, was being
driven Waikiki, on the right side of
the road and about eight feet from
the sidewalk. The automobile came
up behind it, no signal being given.
It had only oil lights ami the driver
of the buggy had no warning that
anything was behind him. When
within a few feet of the buggy, Silva
shouted out, his horn still silent.
Almost at the moment he shouted
his machine struck the buggy.
The light vehicle was thrown
around at right angles to the side
walk, the horse was knocked down,
and the whole outfit, rig, horse and
three occupants, dragged along for
nearly twenty feet, when the nuto
The passengers from the street
enr ran over and assisted the occu
pants of the buggy to get out from
the crumpled rig, while the horse
lunged and reared, terrified. Finally
it broke away and dashed off down
the road, taking the harness and a
portion of the buggy with it. It
was caught again this morning, after
Silva offered to bring the three
victims of his carelessness into town
in his auto, an offer that was prompt
ly declined, the little girl and the
woman "U-ing in a pitiable condition
from overwrought nerves.

Silva has been in the police court
within the past few weeks, charged
with heedless driving. This is his
third or fourth accident since he re
ceived his chauffeur's license, last
Yesterday was a bad day for the
Silva family, nt least that branch of
the family that owns automobiles
An hour or two after Manuel had
slammed his machine through the
back of a buggy on Kalakaua avenue
Joe Silva, said to be a brother to
Manuel, went hunting after a float
ing carbureter, or whatever it is that
floats near the gasoline tank. He
hunted with a lighted match. He
failed to locate the floater but his
discovery of the gasoline wa's start
ling and expensive. The match set
fire to the petrol and the whole fire
department couldn't prevent the
machine from being burned up.
Joe received some burns also, when
the tank exploded.
This happened at the corner of
Piikoi and Young street, about mid
night; The blaze was a big one, a
couple .of gallons of the highly in-
nammaiiie motive Hum excaping
from the tank, after the gas had
split it open, and spread its burn
ing way all over the machine. The
flames licked their way over the
veneer, ate into the cushions and
twisted merrily the steel and wrought
iron of the auto. Silva rang in an
alarm from fire box 87 and the de
partment came on the jump. From
the glare it looked as if half a block
was going. The fire lasted a few
minutes, only, however. Gasoline
goes as fast and as furiously when
on fire on its own account as when
being sparked for motive power at
sixty miles an hour. The firemen
found only the ruins of an automo
bile to play their hose on.
Strike Shows No
Honolulu, Juno 15. A truce
seems to have been declared in the
strike situation. Peace reigns to
day with no sign of either the
planters or the leaders of the
strikers making a move.
With the cases in court, all put
off till Friday by consent, the
grand jury meeting tomorrow, the
court contest has skipped a day
anl, altogether, there is little of
eventful interest to be recorded.
Makino and his lieutenants are
enjoying liberty after a period of
anxiety in which they did not
know if they would ever get out of
jail again and they are endeavor
ing to recoup whatever losses tfiey
may have sustained in the ranks
of the ignorant strikers.
On the plantations of Ewa and
Waialua the sugar business pro
ceeds without any great indication
of any strike existing, while at
Aiea and Waipahn the strikebreak
ers from town continue to make
things jo. Kahuku is managing
very nicely with strikebreakers
from the near country. The Jap
anese strikers camped in Honolulu
from Aiea and Waipahu planta
tions, today find themselvts visited
by agents of the leaders and
preached to with reference to their
future conduct in maintaining a
strike, they are getting enough
food to keep body and sould to
gether and do not appear to be
crying for luxuries.
In the offices of the Nippu Jiji
and the Hawaii Shinpo, the former
the strike organ and the latter the
conservative or even anti-strike
paper, there is perhaps more hust
ling than ever. The Jiji is hot on
the path of getting the Japanese
government, to demand indemnity
of the United States for the entry
of Makino'a store and the Shinpo
is campaigning to show the strikers
as i body the foolishness of longer
remaining out of work.
In the meanwhile the Consul
Uyeno, is placed in an embarrass
ing position for the strike leaders
are working up sentiment against
him and his greatest consideration
is to keep the affair as a matter of
mere argument on wages between
planter and laborer.
It is acknowledging the aim of
the leaders, particularly since
their arrest to make an interna
tionai incident of the strike ii such
a thing i possible. A
