Fretter", "Hgyptian Princess" and several other well known horses will

SAFE DEPOSIT BOXES
Rented by the Month or Year. Par
ticuluru on Application,
Lahaiua, Maui, May 26. The Japanese struck again Tuesday after
noon. They wanted the head luna discharged, and Manager Scrimgeour
turned all matters over to High Sheriff Henry, who notified the strikers
to work or vacate. The strike was declared off Wednesday night. All
are working today.
The strike of Japanese laborers on Pioneer plantation, Maui, resulted
on Saturday night in a clash between the police and strikers at Lahaiua.
Shots were exchanged between the two sides, and when the strikers were
driven away it was with one of their number dead and two others
wounded. Sheriff Baldwin of Maui was in command of the police squad
that fired upon the strikers, and he considered the trouble of such n
threatening character that he immediately wired to Honolulu for rein
forcements. The strike originally started among the Japanese laborers
at the Kaanapali section of the plantation. They claimed that one of
the team luuas had kicked or struck one of the Japanese laborers r.:id
the dismissal of the luna was demanded. After a conference Manager
Scrimgeour of the plantation agreed to discharge the luna, but instead
of this concession satisfying the strikers they began to increase their
demands, The hauling of firewood to the Japanese houses and the
granting of more water than formerly were among some of the demands.
Finally, when the wholesale discharge of a number of lunas was de
manded, Manager Scrimgeour refused. There was a kick against the
employment of a Polish Jew, one of the lunas, as the Japanese claimed
he was a Russian. The Laliaina strikers were resentful toward one of
their countrymen, a Japanese contractor, who was cutting cane under
contract. He had refused to join them in the strike. The Japanese
strikers declared that they would make an example of him and a large
number went to his house for the purpose of killing him. He escaped
before the crowd ot hold of him, but they attacked the house. Sheriff
.Baldwin and the police met the strikers. Shots were fired, resulting in
one dead and two wounded.
Money Appropriated for Sidewalks.
In response to an inquiry of the Board of Trade, Superintendent of
Public Works C. S. Holloway has written that the unexpended balances
remaining in the Treasury available for Hilo improvements are $900 for
curbing and sidewalks, S529.77 from road taxes and P16.26 for roads
land bi idges generally. The latter balance has been augmented by an
item of $750 111 the Deficiency Bill passed by the present Legislature and
which is immediately available.
Tho Hilo Road Board has made application for the $900 for curbing
and sidewalks along government lots, which appropriation expires on
June 30th, and this money will be expended to Improve the sidewalks in
front of the Hilo Hospital and Riverside School, which nt present are
without any walks and in very bad condition,
An Open Tennis Tournament Announced.
The Hilo Tennis Club announce an open tennis tournament beuinniiur

Club Cup for ladies' singles is held by Mrs. H. V. Pattou of Hakalau,
and the Holmes Cup for gentlemen's singles is held by Dr. Fred Irwin,
also of Hakalau, so that there will be a strenuous effort made by the
Hilo players to wrest these prizes from the Hakalau contingent. A
number of Kohala players have announced their intention to attend ami
also the Horner boys from Hamakua.
Demosthenes Lycurgus of Hilo has generously offered a handsome
silver cup for the gentlemen's doubles and the Tennis Clubs second
cup for mixed doubles will arouse considerable rivalry in team
work. All entries must be in writing and filed with President Klltott
on or bi. "tine 24th, at which time the drawing for playing will be
made. - . tournament will begin on Thursday, June 29th, nud con
tinue until finished. It is expected the finals will be played off on
