One hundred thousand dollars is the amount of damages which the Chinese consul, Liang Kwo Ying, asks the cir cuit court to award him against Hee Fat, one of the Lest-known Chinese in tne islands. I lie consul, tiirougli ins attorney, v lauuius .ueonue, yesieroav ,-., t i-,, nieu a suit ior damages in wmen ne The filing of the suit grows out of the opposition of a large number of latter sent the names of at least eight prominent Hawaiian Chinese to the au-1 thorities at Peking, denouncing them as ' revolutionaries. A demand was made upon the consul to know why he should have sent these names, and the consul, having refused to state just wiiy he did, the Chinese people have now rebelled, and disown him aud demand of the Chinese authori ties at Peking that Mr. Liang be re called. Fears Dynamite. The consul feels ' that his life "is in t 1 . . 'IT- -1- danger, because an irresponsible eie nient among the Chinese nave declared thev intend to blow him up with dvna mite. At the consul rs request Sheriff darrett has detailed two men to guard premises. One is sta- iront portion of th3 other in the rear por is now permitted to until after he has passed crutinv under the eyes of the secretaries and the police officers. Ine consul sets forth in his libel that he has, since January 1, 1910, been the consul for the empire of China, and that Hee Fat is a resident of the Territory. In his complaint, which is a lengthy one. the consul reviews his official posi tion here, states the facts in regard to his orders in connection with the census enumeration of the Chinese in Hawaii and just what the registering fee was disbursed for, and then calls attention to the circular call for the Chinese mass meeting iu Aala Park signed by Hee Fat and others. The Accusations. ! Taking each phrase of the circular by itself, the consul, through Attorney McHride, points out its alleged libelous character, which he stigmatizes as "scandalous, defamatory and mali cious." The words, "forced the cen sus enumeration to be paid," he. asserts, are as much as to say that the consul received money which he, as consul, had no right or authority to do, thereby accusing him of official misconduct. Also that it accuses him of dishonesty and fraud. The assertion in the circular that he "disgraced the country" means, ac cording to the plaintiff, that he had uisgraced the empire of China, as its official representative. Quoting further, the consul says that the words "if we fellow men ' do not consider a way to oppose him, our prop I and ot tiers, their lives are in danger because ot his official misconduct as consul. Official Denials. He denies that he "ruined the mer chants,'' as alleged, or ever attempted them. And thus with all the other charges brought against him the consul denies, and continuing savs: "This plaintiff never, directly or in directly, forced, compelled, required or coerced any person or Krsons to pay for such, or any other, census enumera tion; was guilty of no official, or other. i misconduct in connection therewith, and was guiity of no dishonesty or fraud; and that the said statement, 'forced the census enumeration to be paid.' of and concerning this plaintiff as aforesaid, was. and is, false." In conclusion the consul states how he was damaged and makes his demand for the Ainu. pun. The complaint was filed and the summons issued. GREAT COMPANY HAS EXTENSIVE POWERS W J L M INC Ti ) N .

W 1 IN THE SUGAR Asserted San Francisco Will Be Where Government Next Investigates. IMMENSE SUMS INVOLVED Alleged That for Fifteen Years Importers Have Been Double-Crossing. WASIIIXGTOX, December 31. Fur ther developments in the investigation of sugar fauds in connection with Tin derweighing and drawbacks on duty paid, is believed to be imminent, and a high customs official is responsible for the statement, made here yesterday, that the frauds which may be unearthed in Xew Orleans and San Francisco are liable to eclipse in magnitude those which were discovered iu Xew York. It is stated that by the time the present grand jury has completed its in vestigation of the alleged frauds in Xew Orleans relating to sugar imports, it will be found that for fifteen years the government has been defrauded out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. It was to stop this investigation that the sugar trust recently offered to re fund to the government $700,000, an offer which was declined by the prose cuting attorneys acting for the govern ment. San Francisco Next. The next investigation following the one now under way at Xew Orleans, will, it is announced, be in 8au Fran cisco. In that city, it is asserted, tha evidence will show that the government has for years been paying a drawback on Philippine sugar, which entered free of duty, but later was exported as im ported from Java and, on which iuiy had been paid. ,' The investigation at Xew York has resulted in prison sentences for soma and has cost the trust in fines, refund ings and other expenses, millions of dol lars. At Xew Orleans it is believed there will be a repetition of the Xew York cases against the sugar trust. Will Create Sensation. But it is to San Francisco that the eyes of the investigators and prosecutors are turned, and it is asserted em phatically that when the evidence is made public it will create a sensation. For months a secret probing of the methods of the sugar importers has been going on at the Pacific port aud a great mass of facts in detail has been accu mulated as bearing upon tlie proposed investigation. At Xew Orleans indictments are look ed for almost any day after the new rear begins. CLARENCE LEXOW, LEGISLATOR. DIES NEW YORK. December .Tl.
