THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1912.
With the Police.
Ah Wong, an industrious pake
taro grower of Waihec, was set up
on Tuesday night lust, and it is
alleged was badly beaten by Lin
Fook and nnotlier Chinaman. Ah
Wong's injuries consisted of a
broken arm, broken rib, a half a
dozen cuts in the scalp, la-sides u
few sundry bruises.
It seems Ah Wong had gone to
a ditch to turn on water for hi
taro patches when his assailants set
upon him with clubs and gave him
the beating. When help united in
response to the outcries of Ah
Wong, one of his two assailants was
holding him while the other was
using the club with such telling
effect that Ah Wong had to be taken
to the hospital for repairs. The
worst injury is in the rib as the
broken bone has punctured the
lung. Lin Fook ana his confeder
ate have been arrested and are
charged with the offense.

ousky, a Russian resident of Camp

of his countryman and friend so
effectively that the latter had to be
sent to the .hospital in an uncon

The police is keeping the one legged
stool, which is simply a fifteen inch
length of 4x4 Nor west capped with

As a result of the strike of the
inter island steamer captains, Super
visor Theo. T. Meyer failed to snow
up at the meeting of the County
fathers this week.
Several Maui men who went to
Honolulu last week on business
could not. return as soon as had
leen contemplated- ' The strike
was a surprise all around and an
Auditor Chas. Wilcox was intend
ing to go to liana on official busi
ness but the uncertainities arising
over the sailing of the Claudine on
account of the strike has compelled
him to forego the trip.

The mail boat Jas. Makee which
left Honolulu Wednesday evening
managed to reach McGregor land
ing sometime near midnight Thurs
day, and the people of Central
Maui got their mails l riday morn
ing. It is hoped tlie l'ostal author
ities will employ a faster boat for a
mail carrier if the strikes hold out
much longer. A Japanese fishing
sampan could make the trip much
quicker by a whole day it is said.
The tying up of the local boats
on account of the strike of the cap
tains reminded a white haired ka-
maaina of the g od old times in
central Maui when Captain Hob
ron's schooner Ka Moi" got storm
Uiund 111 Honolulu, and failed to
show up with the grocery su nnlies
for country stores. Up in Makawao
old man Peter Gene got out and
cornered all the flour in sight be
fore his rival store keepers had
stopped bewailing the non-arrival
of the Ka Moi," and woke them
up to the opportunities of the situ
ation by marking his catch from
82.50 to $3.00 a fifty-pound sack of
u. U. flour. And the prices staid
up until the overdue boat could
beat into Kahului when the corner
was broken, but in the mean
tune oiu man uene liau maile a
little money out of it-
W. S. Chilliugworth, the genial steuo
grapher of the Court returned from a
