Under Tlie acts of Judge. A. N. Kepoikai in the matter
Investigation, of the estate of T. Mori have heen investigated
by Deputy Attorney General Larmn h and liis report is now in the
hands of the Governor, who will doubtless make his report to the
proper authorities in Washington and make proper recommenda
tious in the premises.
It has been made plain by the records that in spite of the strong
est efforts of Consul-General Mild Saito and E. A. Mott Smith, the
uttornoj in fact of the children of T. Mori, the court turned down
the proposition to have u responsible business man, County At
torney D. H. Case, appointed as guardian and administrator even
when it was shown that he was willing to act for the children
without compensation of any kind, and that the Judge appointed a
man who knew but little of business.
It has been proven conclusively that both Consul Miki Saito and
E. A. Mott Smith urged the prompt settlement of the estate years
ago as the children were practically destitute while their father's
money lay here idle.
It has been shown that shortly after those, efforts were made
Judge A.N. Kepoikai borrowed one thousand dollars from the
estate on his personal note at a low rate of interest. The note was
for a long term and the Judge did not even pay the interest as it
became due. In fact for over two years he paid no interest at all
nor any part of the principal.
The note was given without any security whatever.
It was shown that while the money that properly belongs to the
children of the deceased has lain hero for many years they have
never received one cent of it but remain in practically destitute
The story that letters have heen written from here in an effort
to locate the children in Japan strikes us as subterfuge of the
It has not been denied that the Japanese government has duly
appointed a representative of the children nor that E. A. Mott
Smith holds a valid power of attorney. To find the children who
are beneficiaries of an estate is not the business of the court nor
of any officer appointed by the court so long as their legal repre
sentatives are known and come into court as was done in the pro
per manner in this case.
No one has ever claimed that the acts of the Judge constitute a
crime nor even a misdemeanor but if they do not constitute gross
malfeasance in office then we would like to have some legal light
tell us what it is.
Some years ago George Hons, one of the brightest and most able
attorneys of the Territory, put aclause in his will to the effect that
his estate was not to be probated before a well known Judge, who
was then very much in the lime light. What he would do at the
present time if he were alive and were to write his will here is, of
It is a notorious fact that more estates have been robbed in this
county than in any place -under the Stars and Stripes. Whole
estates have vanished into thin air while the administrators and
others have reveled in the rich spoils.
Innocent Hawaiian heirs have suffered most for in their lack of
technical legal knowledge they have allowed their estates to be
taken away from them and knew not to whom they should turn to
It is less than one year ago that Rev. S'. Kapu, administrator of
the estate of William Cooper, admitted to the editor of this paper
that he was short in his accounts to the extent of over six hundred
dollars, and what has been done? The old story. There are many
of these and no effort made to bring the guilty partes to justice.
Every father has a right to expect that in case of his death those
dependant upon him shall receive a speedy settlement of his estate
and an administration of the estate to the best advantage of his
loved ones and when 'a judge will so far. overstep the bounds of
justice that ho will not only allow the funds of an estate withheld
from destitute children of tender years but protit by the funds
that are practically in Ids charge, he must not expect anything
but condemnation at the hands of every man who has an atom of
honor in but and speedy removal from office at the hands of the
highest authorities of the executive branch of our government.
