This week tins seen one event that
has created at leant a little excite

was nothing loss thau a fight be
tween Chinese collectors aud Chi
nese plantation hands, in tho first
place, and lntor, botweon tho latter
aud a lone police officer.
It wat after 10 o'clock Monday
night, November 7, that a tele

Coney's houso iu Lihuo. It was
to tho offect that there was a riot
betwoen tbo Chineso and Japa
nese of the plantation. The Sheriff,
your correspondent, aud about a
dozen stalwart police officers,
mounted fnt horses and rode at a
rapid rate to Koloa, a distance of
about twolvo miles. Tho trouble
had jiint been stopped.
It seems that Mouday was pay

anxious to get their monoy, had
sought out one or two of tho mem

Kaulaa went to the camp, where
most of the trouble wan taking

ringleader, and a notorious cha
racter on tho planUtiou, put him
under arrest. Thin was tho signal
for his followers in tho distub
auce to come to his assistance,
which thoy did, Kauliaa, being
aloue, rotreatod with his piisoner,
using bun as a cbield, now over
his head aud now In front of him.
He carried tho fellow along for
bout a milo when he found his
pursuers too close for comfort. It
was only until then that ho gave
up and, dropping his prisoner,
ran for his life A stream blocked
his way before proceeding far.

In tho meantime Ah Tow,
