ORDER TOUR NEW SUIT NOW, FOR JUNE 11th, FROM AM rierchant Tailor No. 1292 Fort St, Corner Kukul Clothes TRICKS WIRY JAPS No Joke to Try and Arrest Some of Them. EXPERT WRESTLERS MEET POLICEMEN A Hawaiian Officer Thrown Over the Shoulder of a Little Brown Expert. Deputy Sheriff Chillingworth and his associates, who raid gambling and liquor resorts at night, seern to have had a run of hard luck recently in meeting with a number of crack Jap anese wrestlers, and the police have had cause to rue their luck. Among the Japanese coolies are some of the most expert wrestlers In the Hawaiian Islands. In most cases they have reached a degree of proficiency which would win them admiration in the roped arenas of the sporting com munities of the East. It was one of the features of quarantine camp life at the Drillshed last year, during the plague, to have nightly exhibitions of wrestling. Stripped to the waist the muscular and sinewy Japanese show ed a training which was surprising to outsiders. In recent raids upon Japanese gam blers, both in Kakaako and in Palama, the police officers under the leadership of the deputy sheriff have had to use combined brute strength in order to overcome some of those whom they arrested. Two weeks ago, Apana, the special Chinese officer, and Tanaka, the wiry Japanese officer, encountered a mild-looking, well-dressed Jap, who, with a simple turn of his wrist, threw them upon their backs or caused them to writhe in pain by a steel-like grip upon their wrists and thumbs. The man was overcome by the clubs of three policemen. Last Monday night Deputy Sheriff Chillingworth, accompanied by Keala kia, a big, strapping Hawaiian special officer; Apana, Officer Joy and one or two others, descended upon an inter esting crap game at Leong's place in Kakaako. About fifty of the little brown men from the land of the chrys anthemum were gathered in a circle around a box whereon the dice were being thrown, the game being the fa mous "seven-eleven" introduced by the negro soldiers. Chillingworth made a dive to the center of the ring, scatter ing Japs right and left, and capturing the gambling paraphernalia. He tackled a Japanese about as tall as himself. The fellow at once showed that he was skilled in the art of wrestling, for the instant Chillingworth extended his hand to grasp him, the Japanese caught his wrist and turning his back toward him, made as if to throw him over his shoulder. Chillingworth knows several of the tricks of the profession, and luckily escaped the throw, with the result that both went to the ground together, where each attempted to be the upper man. They struggled, both applying every muscle. Both finally got to their feet, and the scientific battle went oi again. Now it was Chillingworth, now it was the Japanese. The deputy at tempted to catch the bullet head of the Jap between his hand and elbow and bend it over almost to the break ing point, but so surely as Chilling worth made the attempt he was balked by a counter move at his waist. Meanwhile Officer Kealakia had met his match. The Hawaiian weighs about 220 pounds. His first try with a Japanese was to reach for his man. The Jap caught his wrist, turned with his back, and in the twinkling of an eye Kealakia was thrown into the air over his lithe opponent's shoulder, landing on his back in the dirt. Again and again the officer tried to get his hands on the Japanese, who only re newed his ground and lofty tossing. At last the Hawaiian was out of breath, and muttering, "Auwe! Auwe!" Hap pily, in another bout he tripped his op ponent and then tried to use his fists upon him. Every time he struck at the Jap's face, the face moved and the officer's fist struck the ground or the wall. The entire group of men rolled about in the dust until their identities were almost concealed. Chillingworth finally proved himself a master of the wrestling art by a quick movement which almost took the breath out of the Jap wrestler, the lat ter being thrown heavily to the ground. This ended the fight. The Japanese got up to his feet, leaning his body over, with his elbows resting on his knees. He swayed his body back ward and forward and muttered in a way that caused Chillingworth to be- j Iieve he had been hurt. Upon ques- ' tioning another Japanese the deDutv I learned that the wrestler was only be moaning the fact that he had met a man more skilled than he, and was ac- 1 knowledging his defeat. The beaten 1 coolie shook Chillingworth's hand, con- ' gratulated him upon his strength and skill, and invited all to partake of Bake. The Japanese said: "He No. ll wrestler of Kakaako." At this moment Officer Atatani, the big Samoan, who lives near Leong's j piace, came to the scene of the fight and roughly grasped the deputy's arm. A fight almost occurred between the men, until Atatani recognized his su perior through the coatings of Kakaa ko soil. The case Is a clear one, and it would be criminal if our Government should not join with other nationalities in the ! suppression of a traffic which brings isuch disaster to the native population jin the island world. And there is an- other matter in which the Christians land philanthropists of our country should seek to influence iur Govern ment, namely, in reference to giving hina, in the new treaties that are to be formed, a free hand for the suppres sion of the opium traffic. Among the grievances which China has agaisst : foreign nations, the most serious is the i fact that these nations have insisted in ; their treaties upon limiting the power of Chinese authorities to put such du ties upon the importation of opium as would practically prohibit trade in the drug. It is a sad fact that Christendom has forced China to receive foreign opium when she was unwilling to do so. Unless in the new treaties a change is made, China will be compelled to put' the duties upon opium low enough to prevent checking its introduction. Japan keeps out the drug from her bor ders with a strong hand. It would be a monstrous wrong for Christian na tions to make it impossible for China to 60 the same. Our officials should be I besought to see to it that in present negotiations the requirements of pre jvious treaties be no longer insisted up jOn, and that China be left free to deai with this matter in any way she 1 chooses for the limitation or prohibi tion of the trade in opium.

Grand JACK THE VISITOR ON SCHOOL STREET Mysterious Man Who Scares Women and is Wanted by Police A mysterious man in ktiaki, and with a foreign accent, has been terrifying women in the neighborhood of School and Nuuanu streets for the past three nights. He made threats on Monday night to kill Mrs. Mossman, wife of the chief clerk in Deputy Sheriff Chil- j lingworth's office, and the police are 1 now investigating. Last Monday evening Mrs. Mossman was summoned to the front door by a knock. A strange looking man was on tne porcn, anu upon ner approacn he advanced towards her, at the same time muttering a nam which sounded like "Marie." Mrs. Mossman was alone with her young baby, hr nusDand having gone to his office to do some night work. She asked what the man wanted, and receiving no satisfactory answer, she told him to leave the premises. He stayed. Putting on a brave front, Mrs. Mossman at length volunteered to accompany him to the corner of Nuuanu and School streets in order to get him away from the house. The glare of an electric street lamp lighted up School street, and she was not afraid. When near the corner the man turned savagely upon her and began cursing and vowing that if she had directed him to the wrong street he would return and kill her. Mrs. Mossman walked quickly from the fellow.- Nearly all the men folk in the neighborhood were absent and there was no one to send after the strange visitor. Shortly afterward the same man visited the house of Mr. True, and repeated bis strange actions. This time he was led away by a young boy, who conducted him up to Punchbowl street. Later he appeared at the Moss man house, but was frightened off. He went again to Punchbowl street. Shortly afterward Mr. Mossman re turned home, and upon being ac quainted w ith the story set out in pur suit. He could find no traces of the stranger. It was believed that the man might be a lunatic escaped from the asylum, but inquiry at that institution reveal ed the fact that all the inmates were present and accounted for. A Portu guese was taken to the police station yesterday morning and closely inter rogated. He admitted that he Was sometimes out of his head, but gave a satisfactory account of his move ments the night before. The residents of School street are now on guard against another visit from the night prowler, and will use him roughly if caught. LAST WEEl OF Reduction CLOSES SATURDAY, JUNE 22d.
