Jim bhar.n, hs 2. u. 11. rule and a wounded Chinaman, blood dripping to the cement floor from the face of the aged haole and the right leg of the Pake, all made a scene at the Police Station last night. Sharin was drunk. He said he had fired a shot. "And that's all I know about it," he concluded with a maudlin grin. The Pake winced in pain. Offi cer Neeley, a smart emergency sur geon had made a toumaquet. This was snug and besides the heavy bullet from the military piece had made an ugly mark. Dr. X. B. Emerson came and dressed -the Pake's hurt and the wound ed man was taken to his home by friends he had caused to be summoned. Officers Neeley and Espinda had been sent in a hurry to lower Queen street on their wheels. They found about the cottage and Sharin and the little store of Tai Lung a crowd of 500 to COO people Portuguese and na tives. The Chinaman was crying out that he had been killed. Sharin, swing ing . his rifle about was making all sorts of war and killing talk. The officers, knowing Sharin of old, were a bit careful. They made a rush on him after some maneuvering. He resisted, but was quickly downed. It was then found that there was- only an empty shell in the gun. While Sharin was being arrested the Chinaman was taken to the Police Station in a car riage some foreigners had called. Sharin did not shoot at the China man at all. A number of Portuguese and native boys were teasing the old fellow. These amateur hoodlums find game in the old man every time he is in his cups. He ordered them away, brought out his gun and declared he would shoot. The hoys yelled at him and dared him to shoot. At last he fired. The shot was a wild one, but the Pake was in line, sitting in .the doorway of his store, and received the bullet in the calf of his right leg. There is not "much flesh on that part of the average Chinaman and Tai Lung will have a trouble on his hands for some time. He grinned a little when he happened to think and remarked that it might have been worse. It was necessary to send the tempo rary patrol wagon out af.ter Sharin. The old fellow did not take kindly at all to being hauled from his home by the police. Sharin is a stableman in the Govern ment yard near the Judiciary Building. He is a capable and faithful man when sober and has been in the service a long time. He has always been more or less of a drinker and lately his sprees have been very frequent. On a number of occasions he has done some shooting and about a year ago his rifle was taken from him. He behaved for some months and on his promise to be order ly and careful had the gun returned to him. He has probably now seen the last of a military rifle for his use in this country. KAIIULUl COMPANY. IT WAS MORRIS. The Question as to Who Saved the Life of Little Brito. An investigation imo the matter of who saved the boy Bri:o from drowning a week ago Thursday, was held yester day. The spectators of the incident have signed their names to a paper testifying that Morris jumped in and rescued the lad. This was the state ment made in this paper :he next morning. The sum of $10 has been given by Marshal Brown to the deserv ing hero. There seems to have been fraud in the claim for the first $10, as the boy reported to have saved Brito cannot swim.

A decision by Judge Perry sustains defendant's demurrer in the case of the Hawaiian Commercial Company against the Kahului Railway Company. The court says: "After careful consideration I am of the opinion that the bill does not state facts from which the Court can find either that the complainant will suffer irreparable injury, or that a multipli city of suits will necessarily result if this Court does not take jurisdiction of this suit, and that the complainant has a plain, speedy and adequate remedy at law. For these reasons the demurrer is sustained." The ruling is in favcr of the Kahu lui Railway people. The Commercial Company wanted the Court to place an injunction against the Kahului Com pany to the end that there should never be any interference with the new cross ing made by the Commercial Company.

Spencer, Pacific Hardware Co., Honolulu. Dear Sir: The Secretary Disc Plow I pur chased from you is giving us satisfaction. We are using it to plow under a crop of lupins. They are three feet high and very thick. Your plow turns them completely under, at the same time plowing the land fourteen inches deep. I feel satisfied that with this plow the draft for the same quantity and depth of work is as 6 to 8. That is, with the old plow, to do the same work, it takes. 8 good mules; with your plow it takes only 6, and they are less tired at night. Please send me another plow by first schooner leaving fdr this. You are at liberty to use' this in any way you may see fit. Yours truly, A. LIDGATE.
