The arrest of the murderer aside from the necessity for punishment for a shocking crime, will serve the double purpose of being a warning to others from indulging in similar crime. Had the perpetrators of the recent Kauai crime been allowed to 'go uncaught, the situation would have been a very grave one and conditions would have arisen of which the general public is not aware. Glennan was murdered for revenge. Japanese gamblers had been preying on some of the workmen under his employ in the Makaweli ditch work. Glennan had been determined to break up the gambling and he took drastic measures to do it. It was due to his efforts in this respect that he met his death. He was evidently a man of decision and courage, for upon coming on to the gamblers, three or four in number, he promptly attacked them, administered a beating to the men and con fiscated their horses and outfits. Not until they had paid a certain sum for the redemption of the goods would he surrender fhe things. The purpose of demanding this money is not known, ibut it was probably for the purpose of reimbursing the men in his employ who had suffered losses at the hands of the gamblers. Subsequently Glennan encoun tered other gamblers and treated them in exactly the same fashion, giv irig them terrible Beatings and driving them away from tlie ditch gang. The victims of his chastisement swore to be revenged and they carried their plot into execution by putting bed one night and blowing him to When the enormity of the crime ple realized that a serious condition confronted them. The natural indignation which would be aroused over such a crime caused the com munity in which it had been committed, to exert itself to the utmost to g bring the perpetrators to justice. formation leading to the arrest of the criminals. Btit back of the necessity of apprehending the murderer merely be cause he was a criminal, was the necessity of throttling what might de velop into a deadly gang of assassins. Had the murderer of Glennan escaped the Japanese gamblers would have at once assumed that they i could with impunity, remove any persons who interfered with their iopemtions. The means by which the assassination would be accom plished were so terrible as to strike fear into the hearts of the bravest The prospects of being blown into cause the stoutest heart to quail. , - averted, the plantation people exerted lar officers) even to the extent of jn the islands. That the sheriff of the danger is likely. He and his With such a clannish people to work with and the probability of the murderer, being able to get out of the jurisdiction of the Hawaiian Isl ands within a few days' time, the prospect of capturing the murderer .were not bright. But he was arrested and appears to have confessed the commission of the crime. The apprehension of the Glennan assassin was a most fortunate event. A terrible crime will be punished and instead of the gamblers feeling secure in their strength and forming themselves into a band of assassins and murderous highbinders, their spirit will probably be broken and their operations be checked. It is a deplorable thing that the life of a fine, young man, should be sacrificed to the anger of such a worthless, cowardly set of villains as the Japanese gamblers. In the arrest of the assassin a signal service has been done the public. And a new danger cloud which every plantation man secretly felt hovering about him, was dispersed. It would be well if the authorities all over the islands were to make a systematic crusade against the Japanese gamblers, break up their gangs, stop t'heir swindling operations among jthe laborers, and give to the' laborer the protection that he has the right to expect. The plantations protect their help from disease, the police .should protect the laborers from thieves.
