8 o'clock in a field back of the Kea
lia mill Louis Commit, section ltina
of the Makee Sugar Company, was
unexpectedly set upon by three
Filipinos and badly beaten up. The
names of the three men are Jose,.
Felipe and Suarez. It is alleged
that they clubbed the luna over the
head until he was almost helpless,
then tied him up and beat him. A
Chinaman came to the rescue and
he also was beaten and forced to re

being paid for this work in Kona
this year and as high as eighty-five
cents a bag is paid the pickers.
