Ono of the rooms nf tho Judiciary
Rulldlng Is being used for tho hold
ing of striko meetings. This mat
ter was brought to tho attention ot
Judge Robinson this morning, and
the judge will probably take steps
to force Maklno & Company to biro

seminata their views on strikes nntl
Ycsterdny morning was the tlmo
set for the appearance In court ot
the four Japanese arrested by High
Sheriff Henry at Kuhuku for par
ticipation In thu assault upon Qltclil
In which the latter nearly lost his
Ufa. The case did not come up for
trial, but there wero a large num
ber of Jnpunese on hand and they
were not all prisoners or witnesses.
After the case had been contin
ued because the striko lenders had
not come through with the fee for
their lawyer, Muklno, who was pres
ent, though neither as prisoner nor
witness, assembled the Japaueso In
the little roam off tho Mauku Innui
nnil proceeded to harangue them, up
holding tho Justice of their cause
and urging them to stand by him
and not go back to worn.
This morning the same thing
happened. The cnac came on again,
but the striko leaders had not yet
paid 10. A. Douthltt his fee, and
onco more thu cases wero postponed,
this tlmo until Tuesday morning.
And again the thirty or forty Jap
anese who were on hand were gath
ered In tho little room and another
of tho striko leaders proceeded to
huranguo them on the strike, urging
them not to break away but to hang
together und stand by Maklno ct al.
until the sugar planters should
weaken and grant their demands.
YcsUVday morning, Immediately
after Muklno had flr.lrhed his speech,
una of the Jnpanesa was hurried to
thu Mauna Kea and despatched to
One of thu other Islands, presumably
to try to stir up some trouble else
where and strengthening thu shak
ing hands of the Muklno crowd.
Attorney Sam Chllllngworth. who
understands a little Japanese, was
on hand on both occasions and Un
tuned to the speeches of Maklno and
his lieutenant. This morning be
went to Judge Itoblnsori and sug
gested that something ought to be
dona lo prevent the strikers from
using the Judiciary Uulldlng as
headquarters fur the strike or as a
hull In which to" make und listen to
Incendiary talk. The Judge agreed
with him that that Is not the pur
pose of the building und that It
ought not to be permitted. So It
uuother attempt Is made next Tues
day to stir up more trouble, some
thing Is duo to fall on Muklno kind
