FOR FALSE ALARM?,
P. A. Davis, the marine In lall
charged with having turned In false
flro alarms, had his case continued In
the pollco court this morning until
Monday. Davis, It seems. Is well con
nected In the cast. He Is 35 years of
age. His falling seems to be an un
controllable desire for drink. On this
account he enlisted Into the, govern
ment sen Ice purposely to be 'sent to
Midway Island, hoping the stay there
would break him of his habit.
Davis Is originally from Uoston. A
sister Is married- to one of tho best
known bank cashiers In Doston. Some
Ave or six years ago Davis was a purser
on a steamship line running from the
Orient to San Francisco. Owing to his
falling for drinking he lost his posi
tion. He is an expert bookkeeper. His
falling, as termed by physician, )
Known as dipsomania,
Davis, during his ten months' stay
on Midway, has been doing most of the
clerical work for the officers stationed
there. While there he was promoted
to a corporal. His reports are said to
have been remarkable for their accur
acy, combined with unusual neatness.

Walpahu plantation, about 1400 of
them, Japanese, who have been out
several days, will cither hae to agree
to return to work this evening at i
o'clock .or prepare to leave Jho place
tomorrow. Captain Sam Leslie, and
twnty-flio policemen, who went to
the scene of the disagreement this
morning, has not bee,n called upon for
help as yet and thero has been no dem
onstration of violence. Twelve of the
officers will return to the city tonight.
Assistant Sheriff Henry Vlda was re
quested by a representative of the plan

laborers nnd the bosses is to bo made
this evening and It wns thought best
to hiuo tho policemen on hand in case
