Sheriff's Investigation Discloses
That Local Japanese Paper
Sheriff Jsrrctt nnd til interpreter
and clerk who set out for
Watalua Saturday night upon hearing
nlarmlng rumors concerning Jnpnneso
ill-feeling returned yesterday morning
about seven o'clock, having satisfied
himself thnt no such feeling existed.
The story of the assault supposed to
havo been tnado on tho wife of a Japanese
vegetable planter proved to be
for nit ho could find to tho contrary.
Everybody who had been connected
with the story or who might havo heard
something of it was interviewed. TJio
doctor who was supposed to have telephoned
the story In to the Hawaii
Sliinpo, which first gave it publicity, declared
he had novcr henrd of it until it
had appeared in tho paper. Koteuragi;
tho Jnpancso in question, declared that
tli re o soldiers had novcr entered his
house, much less to tio him up nnd assault
his wife., and nroduclnir n. long
"knifo declared that he would tiso that
on any occasion when they did.
Tho polico also knew nothing about
it. Deputy Sheriff Cox, in telephone
communication with Slicrilt Jarre tt
shortly before the latter left town nt
ono o'clock yesterday morning statod
that ho knew of no such nssault.
Having satisfied himself that thero
was no trouble impending between soldiers
of tho Loilehua garrison and the
.l.ipauotc the slitfriff returned early but
left behind him a peculiar kink in tho
situation which might require unraveling
later. That is tho source of tho
story printed by tho Sliinpo in good
faith, the indications being that
beenmo mixed up in a Waialua
potty intrigue and thus made tho goat.
Deputy Sheriff Cox helped furthor to
lay the rumor yestoruny in an interview,
when ho said:
"After rending tho article in Tho
Advertiser of tho alleged criminal ns-Bault
niado by threo soldiers, I doom
it nothing but right for mo to state,
in justico to tho soldiors of Schofield
Barracks, to tho .Tapancso man and his
wife, and in fact, to all. that tho story
of tho assault is without truth.
"I havo known Mr. and Mrs.
for some littlo timo. Thoy havo
littlo vegetable garden, across tho
stream from Haloiwa Hotel. They havo
not had any trouble with any soldiors.

"In regard to tno polico chasing after
tho soldiers thero is absolutely no

mauo by anyone.
"I can say that tho soldiers at Schofield
Barracks havo never given us any
troublo but ,oncc, and thanks to tho
good assistance given 'the Waialua police
by tho military authorities the
guilty ones at that timo wore given
"Indeed I am at a loss to account
why the sheriff should hold ma responsible
for not letting him knowj thero

as a matter of fact, I havo always informed
him of any important 'happening
in my district, immediately after
the snmo was brought before mo.
"I bcliovo tbo ono or ones who wroto
tho article in tbo Hawaii Sliinpo
should bo made to understand the penalty
of writing such articles."

This announcement which was mado
