TWO MEN WERE PLAYING
AT A GAMBLING GAME
Victim Died Three Days Later
Officers Arrived When Funeral
was About to Be
Deputy Sheriff Halvoraen of Walmea,
Island of Kauai, who arrived in thefli
G. Hall Sunday morning brought with
tilm a Japanese prisoner, Kaglmura by
name, who la charged with manslaugh
ter and who will bo kept at Oahu Jail
until the proper time arrives. Mr. Hal
vorsen told the following story to a
Uullctln reporter thls'raornlng:
"On the night of the 12th Inst., some
Japanese from Mana went up to a
place" Just mauka ot the big camp and
cot Into a gambling game. Thcro was
liquor on the premises and, before mid
night, the Japanese were In a glorious.
i ly hilarious state.
"The result of this was a dispute be
tween Kaglmura and Salto 8anklchl,
two plantation laborers, at nn early
hour In the morning. One word led to
Hnother until the men were ready to
use their fists. Kaglmura Jumped up,
grabbed a guava stick and dealt Salto
h blow over the back of the head that
floored him. One of the other men
Jumped tn and held Kaglmura. In order
to prevent him from further using the
atlrk. This man and another I have
tirojght down as witnesses.
"ft seems that Salto was carried
away to the camp where he died on the
tilth Inst. The trouble having been
umong Japanese, I heard nothing of
the ocurrence until that day. When I
got to Mana, the funeral was about to
take place. I stopped the whole thing
and made Inquiries.
"I learned that Kaglmoto had been
hiding In the cane for a couplo of days
and that ho had Just returned to the
camp to get his money from the plan
" tatlon and about $100 which his friends
had raised fortho purpose of getting
him hack to Japan. An attempt was
mado to conceal his whereabouts and I
felt suro that, had I snooped down on
the rump with a force of police, there
would havo been trouble.
"I finally found the supposed assailant
ot Salto and got him awayv from the
camp. At first, ho denied having hit
Salto with a stick but said that ho had
been present. Later on, ho confessed
the whole thing and made a statement
to mo to the effect that ho had struck
the blow that resulted In Salto's death.
The two witnesses who also denied any
knowledge of the affair, finally admit
ted that they had seen the whole thing.
"Tho body of Salto was taken to
Kekaha where a post mortem examin
ation was held by Dr. Goodhue. It was
clearly demonstrated that the Japan
ese had died as a result of the blow on
tho back ot tho head and this wns the
verdict of the Coroner's Jury which
was also held at Kekaha. Sheriff
Coney was present at all the proceed

Walluku. Jan. 20. A strike which
has been brewing for some time among
tho wharf day laborers of tho Knhulul
Hallroad Company, materialized last
Monday, when the 150 or more natives
and Japanese refused to go to work and
demanded higher wages.
Tho men have been paid $1 per day
In the past for day work on the wharf
while those engaged loading the ves
sels 1 nthe harbor were allowed $1.50
per day. Somehow tho men got wind
that the captains of the merchant ves
sels have, been pa) Ing tho Kahulul
Railroad $2 per day for each laborer.
so tho men demanded that they be paid
the full $2.
Tho first meeting ot the natives and
Japanese was held In the drill shed In
Walluku when some sixty or more men
were present to listen to the harangues
of their respective leaders. The native
leader, named Katee, after quoting va
rious passages from the Scriptures
about laboring men and the necessity
far unity In such an undertaking, told
the men that funds had been raised so
to enable tho strikers to remain Idle for
several moViths, that the coffers were
filled to oversowing, and that tho men
need not fear being forced by the Ka
hulul It. 11. Co. to starvation's gate
Those present showed their approval of
the speaker's remarks by cheering him
and saying that they will stick together
while tho funds last and that they
wero determined to get the same pay
as Is being paid for tho same class ot
labor In Honolulu..
On Monday morning tho Walluku
gang of strikers marched down In a
body and Joined with the Kahulul
strikers. All demanded $2 n day from
Superintendent It. W. Filler. )
Mr. Filler was not a man to bo cow
ed by strikers of Bitch magnitude, nnd
ho flatly refused to grant what he
deems a most unreasonable and unwar
rantable demand on tho part of the
Tho strikers had weighed tho matter.
As thcro wero seven merchant vessels
nnd tho steamer Charles Nelson In
port, they thought It wns an easy mat
ter to bring Mr. Filler to terms. Al
though very much handlinpped by be
ing short handed, Mr. Filler remained
tlrm nnd unyielding. The strikers see
ing that the superintendent was not ns
easy ns they had anticipated, sent At
torney Jas. 1.. Coke bb their spokesman
to reason with Mr. Filler nnd make
arrangements whereby they would get
tho wages they demanded.
On Monday evening, tho strikers
again held another meeting In tho drill
shed on which occasion Mr. Coko re
ported his errand, Btatlng that Mr. Fil
ler would only receive tho men at the
old wages. On hearing this report, nil
shouted In derision nnd hero tho matter
ended on that day.
While the strike Is going on, Mr. Fil
ler with n gang of about fifty men load
ed and despatched tho steamer Charles
Nelson with sugar for San Frnnclsco
last Thursday evening, and tho strlkerB
are wondering how the railroad com
pany was enabled to perform that with
out their help.. Tho work nt tho Ka
hulul landing has been going on since
last Monday without a hitch. Somo
of tho natlveB who find themselves In
troublo havo showed their wllllnguess
to return, but tho Japanese ringlead
ers nro said to havo threatened to re
turn to work for less than $1 per day
If tho natives do not stick together
with them. Mr. Filler Is willing to pay
tho natives a llttlo more than tho Japs
nnd Is also willing to keep all tho na
tives nt that ndvanced rnto rather than
employ tho troublesome Orientals.
Last Thursday morning, one of the
Walluku natives went to tho depot, In
tending to board the train to return to
Kahulul to work but was scared away
by tho Japanese. Somehow the native
got to Kahulul through tho sand hills
and related this Incident to Mr. Filler
who caused the arrest of tho Japaneso
ringleader for threatening tho native.
Tho caso camo up before Magistrate
McKay at tho Walluku courthouso laBt
Friday morning, hut the native on tho
stand told a different story entirely
from what ho had told Mr. Filler,
denying In toto that tho Jap over In
tended to do htm bodily harm, and
tho caso was thrown out of court. At
torney Cckc defended the Japanese
while Geo. lions prosecuted the case
for the Kahulul Railroad Company.
The negroes belonging tothe Walluku
plantation have also Joined tho strik
ers, and the twenty-live Tennessee la
borers havo quit work since last Wed
nesday. Their chief complatnt Is small
pay. They claim that $15 a month Is
not sufficient to keep them alive, as the
cost of provisions and flrowood is very
steep In Walluku.
The negroes expected to get over $20
a month for' their services as field la
bor, and they considered that was small
enough when the cost of living Is very
high. But the plantation Is not willing
to paV a cent more than $15 for the first
year.. The negroes will havo to bo or
dered? tovnc.ito the plantation head
quarters It they persist In refusing to
go to work..
Some of the negroes claim that their
wages have been misrepresented to
them by Col, Dean, their agent, and
they say It Is a good thing for Mr. Bean
that he Is safe now on the briny deep.
At this writing neither tho Kahulul
strikers nor tho Walluku negroes have
come to any understanding with their
respectlvo managers, but next week
may tell n different story.
In the caso of the negroes most of
them are pcnnllesB and cannot stand
being Idle for any length of time. A. N.
Kepolkal representing tho Walluku
plantation, has reasoned with them,
nnd they may romo to terms very
