Political Battle Among
Clubmen Ends in
Politics are booming In Chlnatmwn.
The annual election or olllcers of the
,blB Chinese, club on Klnr? street last
night produced a raft of trouble, damaged
Chinamen and the major portion
of the police force.
The ofllee of treasurer caused the
dissension. The Butchers' Guild had
n. man slated for the job and the
Money-Lenders and Bankers' Union
lull a candidate whom they determine-.!
.should secure the coveted olTice.
At 8:15 a Chinaman lushed into the
police station and asked for some -officers
to be sent at onco to the
of the Chinese Society on
King near Smith street, and next door
to Fernandez hardware store. He said
that he thought there would be big
.trouble there shortly,
.Six specials were dispatched to the
Chinese club house and three of them
ascended the btalrway and entered the
meeting hall of the club which was
filled with excited Chinamen, some of
whom were fighting among themselves.
BATTLE WITH POLICE.
The officers tried to restore order
.but were attacked by the occupants of
the room. Officer Kong Keo was soon
done up and Wright was battered with
a. chair but succeeded In pulling Hong
Kee away from ills assailants to a
corner of the room.
Meanwhile the door of the room had
(been locked on the insdde and the officers
without forced It in an attempt
4o rescue their imprisoned comrades.
One of the policemen ran to the
tlon and asked for reinforcements and
Deputy Sheriff VIda proceeded to the
.club with every man he could muster.
Vlda and his men rushed Into the room
but the Chinamen looked so ugly and
so great a crowd had gathered In the
street below that word was sent to th
citation to rush every available officer
to the scene of the riot. In answer to
this response the' patrol wagon dashed
round the city and collected a. dozen
or so men from their beats.
A HOT TIME.
"Vida and the police In the room had
a warm time and were, busy- taking
care of themselves without bothering
bout making nrrests, till the patrol
v.agon hi ought along the emergency
The charged the crowd In the room
nnd Lum Kin, one of the ringleaders
of the trouble, was arrested and sent
to the police station escorted by Officer
-Ale ok I, Frunk Kanae, John Kanua and
A mob of 400 yelling Chinese followed
their countrymnn to the station and
the officers In charge of Lum Kin had
to light hard In order to keep him from
being taken from them.
The station reached, tho prisoner
was rushed down below nnd the crowd
purged in and hiyTto be driven out by
the limited force on hand. Things
looked so bad that the grea doors
were cloned and three officers stood at
the smnll door and clubbed everyone
who ranie within reach.
Tho clubbing evidently was not
by the Chinese, for they broke
.and run buck to their club.

Forty-six Country Club enthusiasts
foregathered at tho Young Hotel last
night for the purpose of organization
and Incorporation and when the meeting
adjourned E. Fuxon Bishop had
been chosen as first piestdent of the
At tho opening of last night's pro
ceedings, E. It. Adams was appointed
temporary chairman nnd Clinton J.
Hutchlns temporary secretary.
The chair pioceeded to read the com.
mlttee's report, which was. as follows:
The history of the movement toward'
the organization of a country club in
Honolulu dates back nearly two years,
when a self-appointed committee visited
the lands known us Waolanl valley
for the purpose of" Investigating Its
feasibility ns a site for such nn organization.
This committee tound the
land to be so splendidly adapted for
tho purpose that overtures wero made
to the owners of the property for a
lease with an option of purchase and
Hnally an ngreement was reached and
a lease secured which lease bears dato
of October 2, 1005, and runs for a peiiod
of twenty yeata, at an annual rental
At tho time this lease arrived the
committee was assured of an option
to purchnse within five years for $24 0M
and the owners were willing to accept
$6000 cash and allow $18,000 to stand
as a mortgage on the property for an
indefinite period, said mortgage to
bear 5 per cent. Interest. As the land
covers an area ot .approximately 300
acres with at least 75 acres peculiarly
adapted for our purposes, this was considered
a reasonable price. The lease
was made in tho name of Wade Warren
Thayer, Esquhe, as lesBeo and
lias remained unexecuted to the present
Several gentlemen who wero approached
on the subject of organizing
u country club to be located on this
property, claimed thnt It was unsuitable
for tho purpose on account of being
boggy and swampy and refused
to interest themselves1 In furthering
the organization. In order to thoroughly
investigate these statements,
a committee of five consisting of Mr.
E. It. Adams, Mr. J. I). Mclnerny, Dr.
C. B. High, Mr. C. S. Holloway and
Mr. O. L. Soienson was requested to
muko a thorough Investigation of the
land nnd mnko a report upon tho same.
This committee visited the property
and after careful and thorough examination
pronounced it to be in every
way sultablo for tho uses and purposes
of tlfe club, finding tho land dry
ana the location In every way adapted.
They also reported that as a business

Clow Translating Graft
Thorp bpgln to bo some signs of a
shift In the struggle In tho political
underworld over the nomination for
Delegate to Congress. A week ago, It
was all Kuhlo and the rest nowhere.
Then Link McCandless openly shied his
castor Into the ring, with the string
on it that tho planters and tho business
men had to agree to his
ut about the same time it
was mado to appear that Kuhlo was
primarily responsible for the passage
of that bill In Congress which gives
Haw-all Wu.ow io uty Its legislative expenses
nnd in effect cuts out tho
tianslutlng and interpieting graft if
the thirty thousand Is to bo secured.
And a more flagrant caso of treason
than that, the cafe au lait statesmen
had never fallen over In all their lives.
It is ono thing for tho Delegate to
break a promise to Alex, Robertson and
Governor Carter, you understand. None
of his truo friends would hold a real
statesman for a little pecadl!l6 like
piomlse breaking, any moro than they
hold Sheriff Urown for his promise
breaking with Claienco Crabbo.
A BODY HLOW.
It Is another thing when Kuhlo nlms
h body ))lo)v lll! that thirty thousand
dollar bill at the persons of his dear
friends nnd delivers It! Why, think
of it! Thltty thousand dollars, und
not u tent of It to go to u man because
ho Is moro or less of an expert
In the Ilauall.wi tongue, nnd cap wilto
wide lines on a typewriter! Was over

Press Censorship Re-established in Russia and
the Conservatives Ask the Czar to
Annul the Douma Elections.
(Associated Press Cablegrams.)
ST. PETERSBURG, April 6. The worst features of the press
censorship have been restored.
The sending of convicts to Saghalien has been discontinued.
The reactionaries are endeavoring to induce the Czar to annul
the recent elections.
MUTINEERS SENTENCED TO DEATH.
VLADIVOSTOK, April 6. The trial of twenty-three soldiers
engaged in the October mutiny has been concluded. Two of them
were sentenced to death and the others to imprisonment.
The restoration of tho press censorship does not look much like liberty in
Ilussin, It is questionable, however, whether tho government will bo ablo to
enforce its decrees in tjiis regard, although it is apparent that a most determined
eirort is being made by tlio reactionary party to restore tho old order.
The attempt to induce tlio Crixr to annul the Douma elections shows how desperate
the friends o'f tho autocracy have become. The elections resulted in )i
victory for the Moderate party in liussia, the Constitutional Dcmoifrnts. An
attempt to overturn that result at this st,ago would bo perhaps tho most dangerous
experiment that Nicholas could nnike.
As to the abandonment of tho convict prisons on Saghullcn, that is mado
jiecessnry by the cession of half tho islnnd to the Japanese
DOWIE HAS STARTED
BACK TOWARD ZI0N
CITY OF MEXICO, April 6. Dowie has started for Chicago.
VOLIVA GETTING READY.
CHICAGO, April 6. Voliva, the new head of Zion, has transferred
all the property of that concern, including Dowic's personal
effects, to Alexander Granger.
Tho modern Klijnh seems able to inspire a wholesome fear in tho minds of
his late followers and of the members of his own family, although ho has been
deposed from the leadership of Zion. The afternoon cables stated thnt his wife,
who Iiiih already. disowned him,xhad collapsed through fear that there might 1)0
bloodshed when lie ennio back. Those who know Dowie, nslilo from the lady, will
have small fear of thnt but ho is rertninlv going to make a strong fight for
tho material assets of his religious community.
UNLIKELY TO ARBITRATE
NEW YORK, April 6. It is believed that the anthracite coal
operators will refuse the request of the miners to submit their differences
Tho afternoon cables carried the story of tho proposition of tho nntlirae.ito
miners to submit their differences with tho operators to arbitration. It was
stated in the cablegram that this would weaken tho position of the strikers, an
tho great element of strength in tills year's movement was tho fact that tho
anthracite ns well as tho bituminous miners were prepared to net together.
EXTRADITION TREATY WITH JAPAN.
TOKIO, April 6. The supplementary extradition treaty with
America has been signed.
THE PEACE OF HUNGARY,
VIENNA, April 6. The peace of Hungary seems to be assured
on the basis of postponing the military demands for three years.
