Altercation at the Chinese Times, 1896.

[Found under: “NU HOU HAWAII”]

This past Tuesday, an altercation [uulukai] arose in the Chinese newspaper office by the name of Chinese Times [Wah Ha Bo] [華夏報], between Cheng Yat Kai, one of those who holds ownership in that newspaper, and Chung Chang Sing, the editor and also an owner in the paper. The cause was Cheng Yat Kai saying that he would sell all of his interests in the paper, and when Chung Chang Sing and some other Chinese got to the newspaper office to purchase the interests of that Chinese, he refused, and that was when the internal riot began. Cheng Yat Kai was injured by Chang Jan Sing hitting him in the head with a hammer.
