Desha's motion and the communi
cation was referred to the police
A communication from James
Mattoon, deputy sheriff of North
Hilo, was read, charging H. P. K.
Maliilani, an appointee of the
county sheriff, with various acts
unbecoming an officer, viz., that he
instigated others to crime; that he
disobeyed orders in reference to the
conveying prisoners from Laupa
hoehoe to South Hilo on January
24; that at Laupahoehoe on the
30th of January, in the case of
Ia.ukea, et al, he tried to mislead
the court and shield law-breakers;
that he wilfully refused to obey
orders in the transportation of pris
oners from Laupahoehoe to Hilo
on February 1st; and recommend
ing his dismissal. The chair opined
that it was a matter for the sheriff
to act upon, if the deputy should
be suspended. Desha suggested
that the sheriff would refuse to act
and advised referring it to the
police committee, and that the case
might be reached by striking the
deputy's name from the pay roll.
Shipman inquired if a suit might
not be successfully maintained
against the county in case his pay
was ordered stopped, and the case
was finally referred to the county
attorney for an opinion.

Salary demands to the amount
of about S8j?o were filed by the
sheriff. .These demands had been
presented at a previous meeting
and payment had been refused, on
the grounds that the services had
not been performed. Desha thought
the demands should be tabled; that
that the case should be tried out on
its merits in court, that the services
had not been performed and that
Die Board had no right to order
the payment. He said that in
Waimea and North Hilo the dep
uty sheriffs had 6tated that these
men had not done the work for
which the claims were put in.
Shipman favored approval of the
claims; there was no evidence that
the officers had refused to perform
their duties, and that if they had,
they should have been suspended.
Fernandez opposed the payment of
the claims with vigor. He said
that many of these men had never
appeared before the deputy sheriffs
or offered their services, that the
police committee had looked into
the cases and that proper claims
had been paid; that he favored
Desha's view, and if courts should
order the claims paid the responsi
bility would not rest with the
Board; moved that the claims be
refused, seconded by Desha and
carried; ayes, Desha, Fernandez,
Makuakaue and Mr. Chairman;
noes, Kalaiwaa and Shipman.

contrary to a rule of the board and
