the elder. The oxen were, as 1 am
informed, turned over by Henry
Cooper, the elder, to J. W. Kaltta.
"I respectfully suggest that the
ndministrator bo not discharged
until this matter is cleared up. it
was his duty to retain control of
these animals. If it be a fact that
J. W. Kalua lias converted these
animals to his own use for purposes
other than the benefit of the estate,
the court should be informed of the
same, and Mr. Kalua should lie
compelled to pay into court the
value of said animals together with
interest from the date of their con
version. ''I have been informed from out
side sources that these qattlc were
loaned to Mr. J. W. Kalua for the
purpose of plowing up some of his
(Kalua's) land mid' that the said
cattle have never been letnrned
"I respectfully recommend that
Henry Cooper Sr.. the Rev. S. Kn
pu and .1. W. Kalua and such other
witnesses as can he found lie sub
poenaed to testify on- this matter
and that Mr. Kapu shall not be
granted his discharged until repar
ation shall have been made to the
esta e for the same."
On Wednesday of this week the
witnesses were called and some
startling testimony was given.
Rev. S. Kapu said that after the
costs of all classes had' been paid
in full he had in his hands MS.' 10
and that there were deeds and five
head of work oxen and one filly
not disposed of.
Ho said that Kalua had asked
him for the money and 'hat he
had gone up to Kalua's houre and
had given him the money. Kalua
gave him no receipt for the money
He testified that Henry Cooper
had loaned Kalua the oxen and
that they had never been in his
lie. 'mid that ho had written Ka
lua three letters askin. for the re
turn of the money but that Kalua
had ;iever replied to any of them.
He said that the reason that he
had give i) the money to Kalua was
that Kalua was his frjend' an ac
tive member of his church and the
judge of the circuit court and that
he trusted him implicity.
J. W. Kalua testified that he
was fortnerlly the judge of the
Second Circuit Court and that he
had appointed Kapu as adminis
trator. He admitted that he had
been dismissed as judge of the
After this testimony Kalua had
the worst fit of what might be
termed a lapse of menioiy that hits
ever been seen in Wailuku.
He forgot how much 11161103' Ibero
was in the estate. He forgot what
became of it. lit forgot-how many
cattle thoe were or what became
of them. He forgot whether lie
had ever had any thing to do with1
the money. He denied positively
that he had ever gotten any part
of the money. He said that he had
borrowed some money from Kapu
in his. private capacity hut thatjt
had been paid by W. 0. Smith
some five or six, years ago. , He did
not remember when. Ho said that
.Smith would not let him liavo the
note now and had demanded pay
ment.. In rely to a question as to
whether it is true that lie ha,d gott
en $(183 that belonged ti t-ho es
tate of Henry Cooper ho testified
that "it is false, absolutely false."
He finally admitted that he had
gotten the cattle that were claimed
to belong to the estate but that ho
had bought them from a strange
man from Makawao. He paid the
man the casli for them. -He paid
$15 ;i head. He paid for them in
his yard. Ho .paid at twelve
o'clock noon, and yet ho does noj
know who the man was, and in re
ply to a question as to whether it
was Saint Peter ho solemnly said
jie could not remember.
, Henry Cooper testified that he
and Puana had taken the cattle
down to KTalua and that he had paid
Puana two dollars for his services
for bringing the cattle to him.
Roth of them testified that Win.
Kukoua was the hum on Kalua's
place in iao Valley when they took
the cattle (lewn while Kalua testified
that it was .lames Maltiht who died
Mrs. Henry Cooper testified that
it was Henry Cooper and Puana who
took the cattle down to Kalua.
Win. Kukona corroborated tho
testimony of Kapu, Henry Cooper,
Ptiana-aml Mrs. Henry Cooper.
After all of the testimony was in
Judge Kepoikai decreed that Patrick
Cockott be declared the heir of l'ihi
and he alone will inherit the ten
cents and such other property now
in the hands of the administrator.
After the decree was entered at
torney Light fool moved that J. W.
Kalua be held to appear before the
grand jury on- a charge of perjury.
He said in parti' 'One of the im
portant matters is what became of
the property belonging to this estate.
The really could not be stolen.
"Tho personal property belonging
to this estate consisted of bvor 8S00
in cash and live head of cattle-and
one filly. Rev. S. Kapu has taken
tho stand and made a plain, straight
forward story. Kapu has testified
that 'Kalua asked 1110 to give him
the money anil because he was my
friend, a member of my church, and
the judge, J gave it to him.' "
Mr. Lightfoot'said: "l don't be
lieve there was anyone present hero
who diil not .believe his (Kapu's)
"It then becomes a material mat
ter to know what bcame of the cat
tle and the nloney.
"Wo have the story -of Henry
Cooper, Puana and Mrs. Henry
Cooper. Kalua says: '1 bought four
cattle. I paid S15 for each of them.
I paid for them at 12 o'clock noon.
I did not look at -the brand because
I trusted the man from whom I
bought them. 1 do not know his
name. I never saw him before. I
have never seen him since..'
"I don't believe there was ever a
worse .conglomeration of lies than
was told by Kalua and if there is a
God in heaven he lied.
"It is an unpleasant duty but I
ask you to do your duty. 1 know
you have a big heart and it is a most
unpleasant duty for you to perform
hut whore is the safety of property
and lifb when perjury is committed
in this court and goes unpunished."
) On Friday afternoon Rev. Kapu
stated he was unable to pay the
amount due the estate. Much sym
pathy was expressed for him and the
court was asked to grant him fur
ther time, which was done.
In the matter of motion of Mr.
Lightfoot, tho court's concluding re
marks' from tho bench were:, "Mr.
Kalua if you wore an ordinary citi
zen I would have no. hesitancy in
committing you to the grand jury.
In view of the important position
you hold and the confusion that
might be occasioned, Phave decided
