HELPED TO SETTLE STRIKE
REV. E. IMAMURA.
The Rev. E. Imamura is superintendent of the Japanese Buddhist Mis
sion, for the Territory of Hawaii, having
street, in Honolulu. He Is given credit for very effective services in con
nection with the recent strike, having brought about a much better under
standing between the laborers and their employers. The Rev. Imamura was
sent for at the suggestion of some of the strike leaders at a critical stage
during the controversy, and it was to' a very large extent through his pow
ers as a speaker that matters were straightened out. The Rev. Imamura
addressed the gathering at Waipahu, which had on a previous occasion re
fused to listen even to the consul, and an agreement to abandon the strike
followed, almost immediately. The Buddhist superintendent is well known
throughout the islands and is looked upon with much respect by the large
Japanese populations of the plantations.
POLICE MAKE WHOLESALE RAIDS ON THE ILLICIT LIQUOR TRAF
FIC AND WITNESSES ARE ATTACKED BY FRIENDS OF THE
DEFENDANTS SEVENTEEN JAPANESE TO BE TRIED FOR ILLI
CIT SALE OF INTOXICANTS.
The Kauai term of the Circuit Court started out last week with a sensa
tional campaign against the illicit liquor traffic by Sheriff Coney. The liquor
business on the Garden Island has long been a subject of much trouble and
Coney started to clean out the dealers who were violating the law. He ar
rested eighteen Japanese dealers on charges of illicit sale of liquor, piling
up the biggest list of such cases Kauai has ever had.
The immediate result of the wholesale arrests was a riot in which friends
of the defendants attacked the witnesses in the liquor cases, threatening
to do them up. Four arrests for assault had been made at last accounts,
and more were to follow. One of the eighteen liquor dealers pleaded guilty.
All the rest entered pleas of not guilty and their cases were set for trial.
In its report to Judge Hardy, the grand jury highly complimented Sheriff
Coney and the police generally, for their efficient work against the illicit
liquor triffic. Judge Hardy added his own compliments, declaring that the
officers had done excellent work. The term will probably be a long one, ow
ing to the large number of liquor cases and the trials growing out of the
attack on witnesses. The liquor cases are all Japanese.
The criminal calendar of the term also includes one manslaughter case,
one of assault with intent to murder and one assault with a deadly weapon.
