asked who It was, Pueo answered
that It was he, and that he wished to

Mrs. Palko tried to get him to go
away but he Insisted on seeing Naomi
n bo, in the meantime, had dressed.
A little later, she opened the door nnd

times In the region of the side and
back and almost severed her head frcm

IN CONSEQUENCE OF
CHARGE TO GRAND JURY
Mr. Almy Says There was a Compact
Between Licensed Resorts and
Police for Sunday Liquor
Henry N. Almy, one of the proprie
tors of Walklkl Inn, called at the Bul
letin office and desired to make a
statement. This Is what ho said:
"This morning tho charge of Judge
Humphreys to the Grand Jury appear
ed in tho papers. It makes a particu
lar assault on the licensed resorts of
Walklkl, which are tho Walklkl An
nex nnd the Walklkl Inn.
"I saw Judgo Humphreys this morn
ing and told him at the time the Gov
ernment gave theso( licenses to places
on tho beach It was thought best to
Issue them.nnd have all-places selling
without license closed up, but wo said
at the, tlmcitiiat wo could not afford to
pay so much as tho Hawaiian Hotel or
any plnce In town within the' restricted
limits unless we were permitted to sell
"That was acknowledged to be
proper and tho police, department said
that It would be all right, and wo said
that wo would keep as orderly places
as possible, which wo have done.
"You can say this, that for myself
and the gentlemen who are Interested
with mo In my business enterprise, we
do not care to place ourselves In the
position of men who are liable to bo
Indicted as criminals.
"Therefore, on Friday next tho Wal
klkl Inn will be closed, not'only on
Sundays but on week days, and I would
like all persons having accounts
ngalnBt us to present them."

It Is already becoming apparent to
tho people of the Islands, more parti
cularly to tho police and other officers
of tho law, that there Is going to bo
serious trouble with the Idle und crtul-
nnl class of Japanese who havo re
cently been released from the re
straints of their labor contracts.
Thievery In a mild form Is becoming
epidemic among them on Maul, gamb
ling nnd tho Illicit manufacture of In
toxicants Is quite common, nnd many
of them have no conscientious scruples
against the graver offences, not exclud
ing murder Itself. At present, the Ju
patlesn themselves ure thn principal
sufferers at the hands of their lawless
brethren, but It Is to ho feared that If
severely restrictive methods of hand
ling this class of Japanese are not
edopted, the people of tho Islands gen
erally will Buffer at their hands.
