OF HIS ARREST

down-town hotel portion. At the lat
ter place we were playing a second
game when I suggested to Morris that
we quit, as the game was too slow to
he- of any Interest to either of us, and
Morris consented. On the way, down
from the billiard parlor, I stopped at
the Stand to purchase cigarettes (this
is on the ground floor and the entrance
to the building), when I heard cursing
coming from the rear of the building,
where there Is a bar, and then an order
by the proprietor to his bartenders to
put a man out. In the rush-out tin-
crowd did not seem to know who was
being put out, and I suppose I got a
bit curious, too, to see the row. The
first I knew someone brushed against
me and another ran Into me from the
rear and then was rushed out by the
mob. Staggermg forward through the
entrance I felt somebody hit me from
'the back and, a second blow knocked
me down to the sidewalk. It all hap
pened so quickly Ihad not the oppor
tunity to strike back and, upon rising
I asked for an' explanation. Two fel
lows, one turned out to be an officer.
In citizen's clothes,' said something to
this effect, "You shut up, drunken nig
ger! and then made a lunge at me.
Three or four others, who undoubtedly
knew the officer and, probably' thinking
they were assisting him, all jumped on
me and I resisted with but little ef.
feet, however. I was protesting against
this outrage perpetrated on me when
the natrol wairon an-lvori nn,i .
licemen 'roughly took hold of me, when'
I again protested to the arrest being !

Tlnced me under arrest be taken along)
too; nut tne latter told them, "Never
mind him; take the damned drunken
nigger!" On arrival at the station
with the two "cops" I was charged with
disorderly conduct, when I then again
protested and demanded the arrest of
the other two without avail. Than I
told the clerk that I urn a Congress
man and that I thought a Congressman
had some privileges exempting him
from arrest while he Is in attendance
,at the Capital. He replied he thought
; there was no help unless I put up $5
collateral, which I refused to do unless
jit be upon my own recognizance. The
clerk again replied that I had one of
! two things to chose, either put the col
lateral up or be locked up. I had we
lcome enraged at the perpetrated out-
The following morning I was taken
to the Police Court, .vhere Mr. Hay
nood met me, who I had s'ent for to
pursue an Investigation with the view
cf punishing the offenders under the
guise of guardians of the pence. He
advised and putsunded me, presumably
by the advice of the District Attorney
who had been In consultation with him
previously, to pay $5.00 and be let off,
but I refused to do so and Insisted on
f olng to trial. It seems the Judge had

and was later joined by Mr. Haywood,
who repeated the advice of the morn
ing to drop the matter and In A few
days no more would be heard or
thought of it. I replied 1 thought the
matter had gotten too far, and would
drop the matter only upon a vindica
tion of my. conduct and that these po
lice officers be given a reprimand; If 1
cannot get any justice I will resign
rather than have the stigma while In
(my official capacity. He expostulated
with me but I turned a deaf ear and
he has not been here since.
The case is still pending, which was
further continued to be taken up this
morrllng and Is further continued for
a further investigation. You will see
iby the clippings here enclosed and the
story of the policeman told the Dis
trict Attorney which I got from Mr.
Haywood that they are at variance,
The policeman that arrested me said
that I was arguing with a man on the
corner of the street, that we were mak
ing so much noise he came up to us
and told us to not make so much
racket, and to that I replied that I was
n Delegate n,nd had .v right to do as I
liked; I got abusive, he says, and raised
a little rumpus, therefore had to ar
rest me. The other policeman said
that I was fighting with someone and
that the policeman came up and ar
rested me. 8lt
When talking this matter over with
Mr. Haywood. I suspected that he was
led to believe by the statements of the
policeman as given to the District At
torney that the cause of my arrest was
from being under the Influence of liq
uor for he always reverted to a fellow
Imbibing little too much which would
very probably make him utter uninten
tional offensive remarks and thereby
cause a quarrel, aB try what I could to
convince him otherwise he would In
variably reply that he had been In that
way very often.
You may Judge for yourself from
the statement of either of the police
men that I argued with a person at the
corner of the street, and naturally In
most cases follow with a fight, when
the other policeman arrested me. No
one else could have been arguing or
fighting with me but Morris, as we
were together all the time, till I sep
arated at the time of the rush-out;
and moreover neither Morris or me
would place ourselves to quarrel over
our misgivings at the public street. I
can only ;sa'y now that 'It was a mis
fortune1 to me and a misapprehension
on the part of the police officers, so to
get out of the muddle they made, are
attempting to get out of It the best
way they! know how.

respondence with him In tho past by

for some weeks, and Mr. Richards had
about given up the hope that his ser

Mr. Richards believed"' that In Mr.

In spite of the fact that the San Fran
cisco newspapers stated that the Hons
Kong Maru was not likely to leave Yo
kohama this month but to be held there
as a transport by the Jnpanese Govern
ment, the local agents of the vessel, IL
Hackfeld & Company, are Inclined to;
the belief that the vessel will sail from
Yokohama. One reason for believing?
this is the fact that the San Francisco
agents of the Toyo Klsen Kalsha sent
a special dispatch containing various
orders and directions for the Hons
King by the S. S. Coptic. The official
mall for the Hong Kong would scarcely;
have been sent to Honolulu by tho
agents had they anticipated that tho
Hong Kong 'Maru would not be allowed
to sail for Honolulu. If there had been
any reason for thinking that the Hone
Kong would not come, the agents would
scarcely have bothered about sending
the mall and orders to Honolulu by tho
Coptic to be held uvtll the arrival of
the Hong Kong.
Neither the Marine Exchange nor It
Hackfeld '& Company have received any
official advices regarding the withdraw
al of the Hong Kong, yet, at the same
time, the sailing of the vessel from Yo
kohama has not been reported. Tho
vessel was to have sailed from Yoko
hama January 20; This is January 22,
and still no word has come. Were It
not for this absence of notification ot
sailing the agents would feel certain
that the boat Is coming.
The America Maru will, It Is thought,
come as usual. She will take freight
and passengers as far as Kobe. Sho
will no doubt be sent by way' of Hono
lulu from San Francisco.
