in the crowd brickbats would hurl
over the intervening heads and orah

force at his disposal relied on diplomacy,
fearful of arousing the passions of the
mob, ho directed his men to lay aside
their truncheons. : '; ' .

was revoked but at no stage did the
police and populace come to blows.

isolated attacks in the Japanese quar

1 Icnlvea, daggers, clubs and bottles. They
charged the crowd with shouts of
Uanzal., The crowd carried no arms
and scattered after a large amount of
damage, One white man was stabbed
toadly, another cut by a stilleto and an.
other had his head laid open with a
broken bottle. The man . stabbed is at
