The matter arose out of a case
which came up in Waiinea court
last Friday, a Filipino being charg
ed with carrying a deadly weapon:
"Too many Filipinoes are carry
ing revolvers around Kauai," ob
served the court. "There is no
good reason for so many weapons
in this country, or for people to
go about armed. We have protec
tive laws, and they are being en
forced. The laws are being brok
en principally by pistol-toters and
knife-wielders. The Filipinoes are
among the worst sinners in this
regard, and it is about time that
they should, for their own good
and the good of the country, stop

$25 and costs.

that ever clawed his hair faced
ltldge Hof-aard Friday in the
Waimea court. He was awful crazy
lie was so crazy that he was wild
and savage like a beast. Natural
ly he was committed to the asylum
for the insane.
Behind the case, however, is a
storv. The Chinaman, whose name
is Ah Fat, has been a man of some
importance around Waipahu, on
Oahu, where he held a position of
resuonsibility at one of the pump
ing stations of the Oahu Sugar
Company. He carried a fine letter
of recommendation from Chief
Pump Engineer Eugene M. Sco
ville, of Waipahu.
He arrived on Kauai about two
weeks ago from Honolulu, and
shortly afterward manifested symp
toms which alarmed those about
him. A few days ago he seemed
to go completely wild and was tak
en into custody. ,
The man was taken by Satur
day's steamer to Honolulu wheie
he will be transferred o the asy
lum for treatment.
