First A Fine In Court Then A Suit
For Damages In A Large Sum,
Next A Fight And Counter Arrest
For Assault Battery
Lant week, in Wailuku, one John
Frietas was arrested on a charge of
assault and battery on Mrs. Sardinha,
an old woman, and In the district court
was fined $30 and costs. That was
the first chapter. r
On Friday Mrs. Sardinha brought
suit against Frietas for damages in
the sum of $5,000, claiming to have
been injured to that extent by the
assaults of the accused. The second
Tuesday night another slate of war
was reached in the Frietas-Sardinha
neighborhood, during which Frietas is
said to have retired from the battle
field considerably worn. At a late
hour he is alleged to have aroused
several policeand other county officials
from their respective slumbers to
show them an ugly cut on his head
which he said had been made by a
rock and that Mrs. Sardinha threw
the rock. Chapter three.
On Wednesday Frietas had Mrs. Sar
dinha arrested and charged with as
sault and battery. The case came on
in the police court Thursday morning,
but was set over to next Thursday.
Judge Wm. A. McKay will supply
the fifth chapter, on the date above
It is stated that the troubles between
Frietas and Mrs. Sardinha have result
ed directly from the dry weather.
They are neighbors, and a question of
rights to water started the racket. Had
the weather man remained "on the
job" during the summer months there
would doubtless have been peace and
happiness where now are to be found
only bitternes and lawsuits.
