36.75 asked. Consequently one would

TRIAL OF STRENGTH
ENDS IN GUN PLAY
Winner Oplllmf Testis
Modi scared ut
Thero was an exciting time down on
Nuuanu street thts morning about halt
past ten o'clock, when a man named
Kahclo pulled out a cheap revolver and
fired a shot In tho air. He claims that
ho used tho gun to scare' a friend of
his who had threatened him with bod
ily Injury; " '
,- The affair startod over a trial of
strength at the ancient sport of "lima."
Kahele .was too strong for Leleo and
iho laitcf then remarked: "Oh well,
you beat mo at your game now we
wUlJiave a try at my game". As Le
Ieo's;gamo was btir.e ,knuckle-flghtIiiK
Kahele became frightened, find ruu
ping Jo his house grabbed a revolver
and fired ln"the air hoping to keep
IJoleo away from' -his premises'.
' Then a neighbor who saw the wholo
performance, Informed tho police ot
the matter and an officer, was dis
patched to investigate tho affair, Ka
hele. had retired to rest and every
thing was qulot when the policeman
arrived on the sceno anil as Leleo did
not wish to swear out a warrant tor
Kahelo's arrest, nothing further was
done. In tho matter.
Leleo Is a frequent visitor at tho
police station,' and not always as a
witness either. Tho police regard tho
affair aa an ordinary saunbble al
though a rovolve?dld play apart lit
