There is a white merchant in llilo by
the name of Lyman, whose family is al
ways taking advantage of the Japinese,
with whom they do business. A few days
ago, we heard the rumor that they took
the lead hi the labor troubles at Kukaiau
discharging many Japinese laborers.
Although this m iv be simply politics, it
is unbecoming in them. Ifnts a Inct,
it is cr bad for the Japinese
At present, nobody is buying nil thing,
even beef or soda water front them, but
are buying from other uieichants. This
is a natural consequence which comes
upon this family, and step by step, they
ruin themselves among our countrymen.
