In this clip, Mr Wong and Mr Owen have a disagreement over the possession of the magic lantern. Mr Wong complains that the lantern is his rightful property and should be returned to him, while Mr Owen is reluctant to return an item that has been found on his land. Mr Wong declares that he will go to the authorities, but Mr Owen questions him as to whose word they will listen to. It is implied that in the eyes of the law, Mr Owen has more credibility.
