The steamer Klnau left Honolulu this after noon, taking Militia Company F. consisting of thirty men, commanded by Captain Johnson, and forty armed Honolulu policemen under High Sheriff Henry, to the scene of the trouble. The strike started a week ago on the Walluku plantation, on the other side of Maui from Lahaina. The Japanese made a long list of demands, among them being the discharge of the head overseer.

May -Rioting resulted tr»-night at 20th and Dearborn sts.. when James Gray. . a negro non-union tramster was shot dead by Harry Bernstein, a bartender, in an argument over the teamsters" strike. Bernstein was BBSS* tally shot by Policeman Tinsley. colored, and LOT*) persons partly demolished a sa'oon Into which Tinsley had taken th- unconscious bar tender. The street fighting to-night is t£e latest of several clashes between nesn*»s and whit** since Enoch Carlson, yenrs r>lf}. was shoe and killed severr.l days ago by two men al leged to have been negro strike breakers. In c discussion to-night, Gray an<l Bern?t?tn fought in the street. Bernstein drew a revolver anil Bred four shots, and Gray fell <Vr-.fl. T^o negroes seized the bartender and a IgM tot th? revolver began. Tinst»y, who hn«l been appoint ed a special policeman, ran up. Bernstein swung the revolver toward Tinsley, nd. it teas said, discharged Che weapon twice. Tinsley drew his own revolver and (bred four shots, all of the bullets striking Bernstein. A crowd hurried toward Tinsley and the wounded man. Tin.- carried Bernstein Into a saloon. The crowci. which was composed largely of negroes cried for vengeance for the killing of Gray. Tinsley shut and barred rhe. saloon or. The mob rushed at the building, but were unatle to fore? the doors open, and large stones an 1 other missiles were thrown at the building, every window and fixture In th* place being demolished. Tinsley. to save Deinstefai from the mob, had the wounded man taken Into the basement, an 1 telephoned to a police station. Two patrol wagons and an ambulance filled with policemen hurried to the scene, b^t it was only after a des perate fiarht. in whl^h several "f the rioters were bruised, that fho mob was forced back from th° siloon. The police told the crowd that Bernstein had been killed, and. placing the unconscious bar tender on a stretcher, covered his face and showed the body to the crowd. This had a quieting effect, and the rioters sooa dispersed. After he had been revived in a hospital Bern stein declared that Gray had started the trouble, and that he had killed the negro in self-defence. BOTH SIDES REMAIN FIRM. Sunday brought no change in the attitude of. either side to the strike, and everything to-night points toward an extension of it. Officers of the seven express companies, whose refusal to rein state any of their former employes caused the collapse of the negotiations last night, adhere to their determination not to Rive employment to any of their former employe*, and the other firms Involved to-night declared that they would stand by the express companies. The teamsters* union has taken as Iran a stand, and It was said by President Shea to-night that the union would not call off the strike until the express com panies came to terms. The first spread of the strike Is expected to come to-morrow morning, when the Lumber men's Association, an organization employing 2.400 teamsters, will issue an order to Its men to make deliveries to all business houses, regard less of whether or not they are Involved in the strike. The teamsters met this afternoon and voted to strike should any teamster be dis charged for refusing to obey such an order. -:. With non-union drivers making deliveries for the lumbermen the strike will undoubtedly spread to affiliated Industrie?, as the union men employed on buildings will refuse to handle ma terial delivered by non-union men. Fhould this lumbermen's strike be called to-morrow, and there is nothing to-night to indicate how it can be avoided there seems to be nothing that ran prevent a general industrial upheaval through out Chicago. Levy Mayer, chief counsel for the Employers Association, gave out a statement to-day in which he said: The employers propose to do business, and will continue to invoke every legal means for m protection of their men and property. That th* employers are right in the attitude they hate assumed in the controversy was demonstrated by the fact that every term and condition the, insisted upon was agreed to by Shea and his be a cHme which no law-abWlng person w«»W The te; - ; ,-k against th? exore^s companies in violation of the letter of SSisiSs IHI hgssz in the «wnd th- have taken, and our or*ml lat on Inn i M every endeavor to assist the ex- P re£ c^panTe ,m" maintaining th. decision Fhlv-" h»r# reached Of course, , this decision me* J *hat the£ will be no settlement of the ™r?ke uiYlrss the union withdraws its demand; but it is the only thins left for us to do. EXPRESS COMPANTTS POSITION. Alonzo Wygant. general agent of the United States Express Company, said to-night that so far as a settlement of th* strike was concerned the only way that it could be end-d would be for the teamsters to surrender ••Our men were tola before they struck. S3lfl Mr. Wygant; "that if they went out In sympa thy with others they could not hope for rein statement, and I canijot now see any contin gency that would change our decision In the matter "' Mayor Dunne and Sheriff Barrett spent th* day in trying to ascertain if '*■"-* was going to be a spread of ike strike to-morrow In the afternoon a, conference was held in th» Mayor's office.
