Ono Chinese Shot In tho Leu 1V Olio of
III Countrymen Tho Trouble
I ii (I el.
What might hnvo turned out a
vory serious affair took placo at
Mokulein, nonr Wuinlua, Inst
night. Deputy-Sheriff Andrew
Cox, with a number of special
officers sworn in for tho purpose,
raided tho houso of a native wo
man nnmed Knknu, near Silvn's
rice plantation, for Chinese gani
blors. Thoro woro a number of
them in tbo house, but they mado
their escnpo through a rear door
and struck out for tho plantation
houso, calling for help from thoir
countrymen as thoy rau. Doputy
Sboriff Cox and his specials gave
chaso and tho Chinese who had
gathered to tho number of about
forty showed fight. In tho scufllo
which followed sovornl pistol shots
wero fired and tho special officers
took to thoir heels. Cox wns
captured by the Chinese, although
no was armeu witn a rovolver and
could have laid out several of the
Chinamen had ho desired.
After tho mcloo was over it was
found that ono of tho Chiiieso
had boon shot.in tho fleshy part of
tho leg, and diro threats wero
made by tho others against Cox,
if tho doctor's report was not
favorable. Dr. Boid was tele
phoned for nnd extracted tho
bullotfrom tho log. On examina
tion it was found that it would
not fit any of tho revolvers belong
ing to tho polico nnd thnt it must
havo corao from a revolver in the
hands of ono of tho Chinese. On
this boing explained to them, Cox
was allowed to dopart.
Deputy Marshal Hitchcock was
notified of tho trouble by tolo
pbono and wns proparing to tako
stops to insure Cox's release, when
notified that it hnd been accom
plished through Dr. Boid's ex
plnnutions. 1'ho Mnrshnl will
probnbly tako no further steps in
tho matter, although tho Chinoso
threaten to have tho specials ar
rested for attacking thorn without
Tho Marshal would havo sent a
heavily armed forco of polico to
aialua at daylight this morning,
if Cox had still been detained by
tho Chinese, though ho thinks if
Cox had used his rovolver in his
own dofenso tho Chinese would
havo recoived a well-merited
lesson. Cox is a good shot with a
revolver and some Chineso would
undoubtedly have beon hurt.
The ovangolist Bomic created
profound awo Inst night in his
masterful treatment of tho subject
of Biu and its euro. Tho sermon
abouuded in clear nnd lucid de
ductions from tho lesson of Moses
nnd tbo Israelites nud w lint thoir
oxjiorionco foreshadowed in tho
spiritual sphero now. Tho man
bitten by a sorpont, which was a
typo of sin, in that day and re
fused to look to tho brazen serpent
orected by Moses at tho command
of God for his euro, died, and
thoro was no uncertainty nhmit if?
it wns tbo inevitable fruit of dis
obedience "For if tho word spoken
by angola was steadfast and every
uansgression ami disobedience
received a just recompense of re
ward; how shall wo escape if wo
neglect so groat salvation?" "Turu
you, oh, turn you," says God, "for
why will you dio?" Singor Har
roll roudored a vory touching solo,
tho sentiment sacred, to tho tune
of "Annie Laurio." Tho singing
by tho congregation wns also
hourly nnd spirited.

given notico that niw policeman

taxes for 1895 boforo Maroh 1st
