James Kamaile in Michigan, 1870.

Petty Theft.—Yesterday Frank Bezena, age twelve years, was arrested for stealing spring balances from George Wreford, butcher. He was convicted and fined $10, which was paid for him. A Sandwich Islander, named James Kamaile, who is a junk dealer and rag-gatherer, was also arrested on a charge of receiving stolen property, knowing it to be such. He was held for trial at the December term of the Recorder’s Court and released on his own recognizance.
