As a result of the mass meeting of
Japanese and Chinese last, Saturday
night, there is to be a union organiza
tion of the Chinese and Japanese mer
chants of Honolulu. A meeting to dis
cuss the subject was held last night at
the rooms of the United Chinese Socie
ty. The scope and benefits to be ex
pected from the organization were fully
discussed. It was held that merchants
of the two nationalities have many in
terests In common; they deal in mer
chandise affected by the same condi
tions, and that their mutual Interest
would be furthered and benefitted by
an organization In which both national
ities would be represented.
As 'a result of the conference It was
decided to organize under the name, of
the Chinese and Japanese Merchants'
Union. A committee was appointed to
draft a form of organization. Future
meetings will be held to complete the
fomtatlon of the union. Each nation
ality will have equal representation 'In
it, and the purpose of the organization
Is to act on the usual class of matters
with -which' mercant'lleassociatlons deal,
as Avell as to act on matters which con
cern their own particular lines of trade,
and In addition, matters which affect
the Interest of the Japanese 'and Chi
nese people In common.
The reprerentatives of the Chinese
present, -were: Wong Leong, Wong
Chow, T. Kat Poo, L. Chong, Ylm
Quon, L. Ahlo and Chung Ming. The
Japanese were represented by Mr.

Fight With a Luna Lturt. Week Cane
Knives Taitcn, From Strikers Qnly
800 On Strike. "'
Advices received by the steamer Ke
Au Hou yesterday regarding the strike
among the Japanese at Lahalna and
Kaan'apall state that there Id little fear
of further -trouble at Koanapall. The
Japanese' there have gone to work
again. Those at Lahalna are still hold
ing out and refuse to listen to peace
overtures. .The number of men on the
strike is less,than a thousand .now.
One-of -the Immediate, .causes of the
Strike was' a fight between 'one of the
lunas of Lahalna and a Japanese con
tract laborer. The luna 1s a man named
Von Budwltz, who Is said to be a Ger
man count, and who has quite a repu
tation as a Vlolln-'player. As he was
riding past the laborer With whom he
had the difficulty, which occurred last
week, the luna's horse shied and struck
the Jap. The count was thrown off
and the Japanese angrily attacked him.
In the fight that followed Vpn Budwltz
received a cut In the hand. The Jap
anese was arretted, trleU and convict
ed, and fined $50, the morlfej1, being paid
by subscriptions ot his "countrymen.
Count Von Budwltz' discharge Is de
manded by the strikers.
The men who are on strike have made
up a list of "conditions" on which they
will rdturn to work, making a number
of demands that the plantation mana
gers cannot consider. It Is asked by
the strikers that $5,000 each, or $15,000,
be paid for the three Japs who were
killed In the recent accident. The com
pany Is stated to be willing to do some
thing for the families of the dead wom
an and two men, but will only pay the
money to the Japanese Consul, whereas,
the men at Lahalna want It paid there
Other conditions proposed by the la
borers have to do with the men em
ployed, to boss them. They want the
manager of the plantation discharged,
also the sngai-boiler In the factory, some
of the lunas, and others. The doctor and
englneer Jire also under the ban. The
men who began the strike are contract
laborers, though they compelled many
of the others, especially at Kaan'apall,
to join them in ceasing to work.
It' Is thought by some that behind the
trouble there Is something that has not
come to light. J. F. Hackfeld'of Hack
feld & Co., 'agents for the plantation,
stated this morning that he had reason
to believe that the strike had been fo
mented by some ringleaders whose mo
tives were not what the strikers Had
been mkktng k'nojvn, "The accident
that cost' three lives may havfr been the
cause," said M1- Hackfeld, "but I think
wine' leaders have been working the
thing up for some time.
"At present, accbrdlng to advices 1
received yesterday, there are only
about S00 strikers. They have made a
lot ot demands, some of which cannot
be considered. They want the mana
ger and a lot of ojher people discharged
and an Jndemnlty of $5,000 each for the
three persons who were killed. So far
as I have hard there has been rlo trou
ble, and I do not think any is expell
At Lahalna there Is a- citizens' gt.ir3
of about thirty men, and at Walluku
there is another citizens' guard, the
members numbering forty. The lunas on
the plantation secured many pf the
cane knives used by tho Japanese,
which are thought to be the only weap
ons any of them have, and It is thought
that the white men on the scene van
handle the situation. "I have roee!vd
no call fpr help," said- Marshall Brown,
"and do not think thetv will be any
serious trouble. Sheriff. Baldwin wrote
to me Just as the Ke Au Hou was leav
ing and did not Intimate that there was
any likelihood of assistance being need
ed from here. I think the men on the
scene and tho citizens' guards can look
after the affair."
The peace envoys who were sent from
here on the steamer Nlhau had no In
fluence with the Japs. The latter
seemed to think that the men from
Honolulu were friends of the planta
tion, and refused to nay 'any attention
to theft- advice. The people of Lahalna
arc reported to toe somewhat disturbed
over the attitude of the striking japs,
C. II. Dickey, who arrived by the
Kinau, says that Just previous to the
Inauguration of the strike the cane
fields were set on fire three times, but
without much damage being done. Then
the Strikers gathered In procession and
with Japanese and other Hags, and
banners Hying, marched through the
Streets of Lahalna, and ta various parts
ot me piantaiinn wnerever gangs were
rit work, compelling them by the show
of numbers and .purpose to Join the
strike. Mr. Dickey saw a procession
of this kind on Friday compel a gang
of free laborers who were working on
a railroad to quit work. The free labor.

Mr. Dickey says the commissioners
who went from Honolulu have been un
successful, and were practically driven
out of the' strikers camp. He under

Japanese Cqnsul to go over and try
and settle the matter.
