Kalihl, Rev. Charles H. McVey, pastor
of Kalihl Union church, figured in a

After repeated demands on police
authorities, starting with Judge Mon-

a "John Doe" warrant issued on which
a. Hawaiian, M. Manini. was arrested
early this afternoon and was still held

McVey says he was first refused
the warrant, was put off by Deputy
City Attorney CTnillingworth, and had
an exchange of words with Captain
of Detectives McDuffle so heated that
bystanders thought the two men
might come to blows.
McDuffle accused McVey of declar

Honolulu, and McVey answered that
he had said so and stood ready to
prove his. words. " . : .
