Mori had followed Yokogawa,
leader of all agitation on Maui, to
Honolulu, apparently forsaking a
life of quiet to take up the cause of
fanaticism. Last night he attended
a council of the Higher wage Asso

attacked Sheba, the Japanese who
has all along endeavored to-show the
striking Japanese plantation labor
ers the error of their ways.
Was Mori acting on his own res
ponsibility r is he the chosen agent
to assassinate Sheba?
"1 intended to punish Sheba for
his being a traitor to the Japanese
in Hawaii," says Mori from behind
the bars, where he is endeavoring to
assume to the attitude of a martyr.
He met Sheba on the street and
asked him what he meant by taking
the stand ho has in regard to and'
ugainst the higher wage agitation.
Sheba remarked, laughingly, that
Mori was too young to know what
he was taking about and that he
had better get out of the way.
I will punish you, you traitor!"
shouted Mori, or words to that
effect, and drew from his trousers'
pocket a pen-knife or pocket-knife

or four times Mori sfiibbed Sheba,
once in the neck, again in the scalp,
when the pomt ot the Made was
