ELLIS KADOORIE SCHOOL BOY SCOUTS.
A COMMENDABLE ACT.
We do not think the following act of the Boy Scouts should pass unnoticed. The Boy Scouts have not been formed very long and yet we have had several indications already of the fact that during their short existence they have become imbued with a spirit which shows the value of their training.
At 10 p.m. on the 15th of this month two boys were preparing for bed in their houses in Gutzlaff Street when two shots rang out. They ran into the street, and saw a Chinaman had been murdered. Full-grown Chinamen in the neighbourhood feared for their skins and kept away. Not so these two boys. They went up to the dying man and carried him to the Police Station. The blood was pouring freely from two wounds and the boys became covered with blood. One was only 15 years of age and the other 17. Their names are Chan Hung Yun and Li Hok Wai. This brave act would never have been recorded had it not been that the Inspector of Police at the Central Station sent for them again, and so it came to our notice.
