jlpMFM Threaten to Tr Down a
Jail at nooVrn to Relra.e Frloner.
The eteamer V. G. Hall brought
a confirmation of the news regarding
the death of the Japanese, as
reported in this paper Friday.
The story was true in the important
details, with the exception of
the wounds sustained by the
police officer; he had all the
ribs on the right side fractured,
besides receiving a Eevere cut under
one of his ears. Marshal Hitchcock
received a letter from a deputy
sheriff stationed on Hawaii,
which gives some additional facts.
It eeems that a native man, who
owned a field of coffee, was in debt
to a friend, who in turn accepted
the coffee in payment of his claim.
Finally, 3 gang of Japanese was
sent to pick the berries, but the
native, not knowing they were sent
bv the owner, tried to prevent them
from gathering the coffee. His efforts
"were unsuccessful, however,
and he then went in search of the
police, and finally returned with
three officers, who ordered the men
to surrender and accompany them
to Hookena to answer to a charge
of larceny. The policemen tried to
make themselves understood without
the aid of an interpreter, but
they made but little headway, as
the" Japanese refused to leave the
land, and then a free fight was indulged
in by all hands.
During the melee, two Japanese
were shot, one faUllj ; the other
received a ball in one of his shoulders
; one policeman had his ribs
fractured, beside? receiving a cut
behind an ear. After the shooting
took place, the Japanese surrendered
themselves, and were taken
to Hookena and locked up. During
the night about 150 Japanese
collected outside of the jail and
threatened to tear it down, and, to
quiet the mob, the policemen
freed the imprisoned Japanese.
Sheriff Villiams was expected to
reach the scene of the trouble on
last Thursday. and it is
presumed that he has rearrested
the men beforS this.
The policeman, who was injured,
was ia a dangerous condition at
last accounts; the Japanese, who
recived a ball in his shoulder, is
not seriously wounded. The man
who was killed was buried on last
The Hall brousht news of an
other tragedy on Hawaii. It took !

very meagre, but, from information
received yesterday, it is learned
that a Japanese officer, belonging
to the plantation, was killed by a
who is also a Japanese. The
murderer used a hatchet. He was
not caught, although the police
were hot on his trail.

THE LABOR QUESTION".
A Workingirian Sirggesis the Importation
Mk. Editor: In your issue of
the 7th instant you make an allusion
to the labor difficulty for plantation
work. I quite agree with
roar note of warning relating to an
undesirable class of subjects coming
here for plantation or other work.
No doubt the chief cause of our
present large Chinese and Japanese
population is, that they were imported
in large numbers in the past
and allowed to remain at the expiration
of their service. And as
the present Government, or rather
the white population, regard the
above as one of the existing evils,
it is impossible to solve the planters'
difficulty on the old lines with
profit to our existing progressive
institutions ; therefore, I would suggest
that a course, similar to the
Australian system, be adopted,
namely, to import coolie labor to
do the" plantation work, and, at the
expiration of their service say one,
two or three years be shipped back
to the place from whence they came,
unless the coolies were agreeable to
serve another term. On no account
should they be allowed to work at
any kind of work other than tropical
agriculture, or be allowed to
enter business. By such a system,
with Government supervision in
shipping and hiring, the sugar industry
could be carried on at a
profit" to the planters and the
country. Of course I know several
people'would object, especially the
working classes; but that would
be simply from want of knowledge
on the subject of sugar planting and
the cheap labor, which is a necessity
to compete with other countries
that employ cheaper labor than
can be found in these islands. If
I am not trespassing too much on
your space, I may mention the success
of such a svstem in Queensland.
In 1890 the Queensland
Legislature, under strong pressure
from the labor party, condemned
the kanaka trade (as it is called),
and prohibited the importation of
kanakas from the South Sea Islands
for sugar plantations. The
consequence was that sugar cultivation
decreased at such an alarming
rate (more than half in one
year), that the same Government,
boh in justice to the planter and
for the benefit of the colony, rein
troduced and passed a bill for the
importation of cheap labor from the
islands in 1S92, with the result that
the production of sugar has reached
over 140,000 tons for 1S94, while
in 1S91 it was but little over 50,000
tons ; and, with the encouragement
riven to the industry by the Gov
ernment at present, it is expected
that next year the production of
sugar in Queensland will reach
nearly 200,000 tons ; and all those
mulls can be reached without interfering
with the white labor
or in any way creating an obnoxious
and undesirable foreign
population. I m3y here mention
that the Indian coolie is adapted
for that kind cf work on account
of the immense tea and coffee plantations
in that country ; and as the
South Sea Islands are being depopulated,
through various causes,
Australia will soon have to go to
India for labor for the sugar in-
Hoping this suggestion may be
of service, 1 am, etc.,
WHO CAN HE BE?
A Vancouver Man Lately Wedded,
Says He Has Been Here.
After traveling msny thousands of
miles Otto Semisich, aged 50 years,
of Vancouver and Clara Schroeder,
25 years old, of Berlin, were married
in Brooklyn recently. The groom is
wealthy, and with his bride will soon
start for San Francisco, where the
honeymoon will be passed. The

Semisch says he is the owner of
reality and an electric light plant in
Vancouver. Six months ago, while
he was the representative of an electrical
concern in Hawaii, he decided
that he onght to get married. He
resigned and returned to Vancouver,
where, not finding a suitable helpmate,
he left for Berlin.
He became acquainted with Miss
Schroeder, and, after an electrical
courtship, won her. It takes several
months, Mr. Semisich says, to get
married in Germany. That didn't
suit his temperament, so the couple
sailed for New York. Semisich said
he had searched in vain for a German

succeeded admirably. The usual

used, and were most artistically
combined. Over the band stand

"Healani." Around the room were
draped the flags of different nations,

There was a pleasant re-union of
Yale men, last evening, at the residence
of Chief Justice Judd, L.L.D.
The following persons are graduates
now resident in the islands :

Some thrilling accounts were
given of the way in which Mr.
Bingham, Professor Alexander and
Chief Justice Judd made things
lively in their college days. The
matter of forming an alumni association,
or a university club, for all
college men was discussed. It was
believed that such organizations
would encourage young men to
prepare for and enter college.
After refreshments, which included
much excellent cocoanut water,
and the singing of college" songs,
which indicated that Yale only
was the foremost college of the
world, the reunion ended.

Undoubtedly the reason of the
popularity of Hires' Rootbeer is, because
it surpasses nil other preparations

It is very easily prepared,
and if the plain directions are followed,
it will always be good.
Every member of the family, from

enjoy this excellent summer drink.
Children especially delight in Hires'
Rootbeer. Its preparation interests
them, and its use does them good.
