CARTER GOT WORD AT HALEIW
That those Interested In the Oahu
plantation had grave (cara lest the
ptrlke sshould take such a turn a to
necessitate the calling out ot the ml
lltla, wns shown by the fact that a race-1
kagc whs sent to Governor Carter, who
Was then at Halelwa, about the matter.'
"I received a telephone message last!
(Saturday," said the Governor this
morning, "but the 'phone was so In-
uisunci inni i couiu noi unaersianu it,
very well. I could not catch the man's)
name, but he said he was a director.
As far as I could understand ha said
Komcthlnc about a strike at tho Horn-'
lulu Plantation and asked that I call
out the mllltla."
Sheriff Drown was told ot tho tnes-1
aago rco.iveJ by the Governor and
asked If tin re had been any fear of
trouble at the Honolulu plantation.
"No, thire was no troublo there,"
aald tho Sheriff. "The strike was en
tirely conflnel to Walpahu.. I think,
however, lhi.t I can explain tho maatter
of tho mesuig;. I attended a meeting;
of the directors ot the Oahu Sugir Co.
last Saturday. Much apprehension war
ahown lest there should bo a never
outbreak on the part ot tho Walpahu
rtrlkcrs on Sunday morning. It wai I
feared tint they might commit acts of,
viuivMic, auiii uh uuiuiiiK itiue uiiu urn-
troylng pumps. In that event It was
thought tint tho police would not be
nble to cope vlth tho strikers and that
the mllltla would be needed. I think
Paul Muhlcndorft telephoned to the
Governor at Halelwa. The Idea was to
havo the (loyernor come to Honolulu,
co that he would be able to call out th
mllltla at a moment's' notice If ned
In this connection 'It may be said
that the mllltla could not, according to
law, be called out In such a case. Tho
law provides that when the police flndl
themselves nimble to tope with a sit-1
nation, tho sheriff shall swear In a
posse, of citizens to assist his force,
and It la only when this means hail
been reported to and has failed, that
tho Governor Is empowered to call out,
Is Getting Serious. I
"This strike business Is getting lie-1
rlous," said a piomlnent sugar roan
this morning, "and there Is no telling
how It will all end, unless wo take
titepg to prevent tho constant recur
rence of strikes that are based on no
good reason at all. It thero was any
good reason for the Japanese on the;
plantations striking, there would bo
something to work on In the way ot
preventing a recurrence, Tho Btrlk
crs could state their grievances and
the plantations could meet tho labor
ers half way and somo satisfactory i
conclusion could be reached, but when
the Japanese go out on a strike tor ap-
parently no reason, what Is thorcthat
tho plantation men can do except to
bo In a position to Ignore tho strikers ,
and put on other men to, do tho work?
Walpahu Can Afford It. I
"As far as this strlko on Walpahu
plantation Is concerned, it does not
mako any great difference whother the
men go back to work or quit, for Wat
pnhu Is In a condition to get along
very well for a while with compara
tively few men. Owing to the recent
heavy rains all over the Island, but lit
tlo work will bo absolutely necessary
In tho way of Irrigation for qulto a
time and, with the big plant possessed
by walpahu, the plantation can afford
to loso a month's time without being
handicapped, for the mill Is capable of
making up for lost time.
Doesn't Blame Police.
Said another, officially connected
with the sugar Industry: "I dont
blamo the twenty-five police for not
taking any strenuous measures against
a thousand Japnnoso, but If tho police
can't handle a buuch of strikers there
Is only ono thing to do, and that U
call out tho mllltla. I hardly think
such a courso will bo necessary, how.
ever, for the men contracting for load

Two Japanese fishermen In a sampan
left the Channel whart lost Wednesday
for their usual fishing grounds. Noth
ing has been heard or seen of the men
since. Friday morning a larger sam
pan with a crew of eight men started
out In spite of the rough weather to
look for the missing sampan, thinking
perhaps tho occupants were In distress.

Tho Japanese at the Channel wharf,
most ot tho 105 who are staying ashore
now on account of tho bad sea, are
watching .the horlton anxiously this af
ternoon In search of their missing fel
low workmen. Up to a late hour this
afternoon neither tho two who started
out Wednesday nor tho rescue party
had been sighted.
It Is feared the two fishermen have
been lost at sea. Still, thero Is a pos
sibility that they might have been
washed ashore somewhere, together
with their boat. In caso they drifted
or were blown out to sea, having left
hero Wednesday, they would bo nearly
starved to death by this tlmo as they
carried only a few days' rations.
Much anxiety is also felt for the big
Bampan, but It was better prepared for
rough weather than the smaller one.
The rescue party also took along con.
slderablo lood and It is likely that tho
crow la still Balling about looking for
tho lost pair. It the large sampan does
not show up this afternoon or early to
morrow another rescue party will be
organized among the brave Japanese
fishermen to start on a voyago to look
over the rough waters for the first
rescue party, which started out to hunt

tho heads making a desperate endeavor
to reach shore, The wind was In such
a direction that It was necessary for
them to tack. A largo crowd along the
water front was watching the boat and
Its occunantB. At times It would dis
appear behind a wave and a second lat

Japanese fishermen were among the
witnesses. Finally tho sampan wot

They went out In one ot tho larger
sampans. Tho two drowning men were
clinging to their upset boat and half
dead from fright, the cold and from be

against tho side of the overturned sam

brought ashore together with their

The big sampan with its crew of ten
men and tho two unfortunates had a
hard time making tho Channel wharf
