THE DALLY BULLETIN SUMMARY: HONOLULU, H. I,, FRIDAY, JANUARY 23, 18M,
LETTER FROM Mil, J, 0. CAnTEn,
Ebrroit Bulletin !Tlio writer fof
the Advertiser is lo the fore again
this morning mid treats me less
fairly than before. The main points
in his articlo arc based upon an
en or which 1 made, and corrected
at the earliest moment possible.
Let mo ask your readers as men
what is the quality of honor or
sense of fair play that u writer pos
sesses who can take advantage of a
slip of the pen which 1 made and
collected? Surely this is not tho
kind of a man who" shall draw lines
for my conduct. Upon the matter
of bonds unpaid nt maturity the
Advertiser writer says:
Touching tin allegation that " a con
siderable sum of the !) percent boniN
have been Illegally oxleiideil " we lmo
u woul to siy. As already cliown the
him of ti percent bond was limited I"
SIIOO.OOO by the law ot September 27.
1874. These bonds nie payable at tho
date iwpieod on their fa'ee, or ut a
peilod not exceeding twenty years fiom
the parage of the Act. Of tlicc bond-',
S."0,000 became payable September 1.
1SSI. 'I hey were pint of the asset of
tho James Kobltisou estate, and by u
mutual arrangement between the tiiw
tees of that otate and the Government
they weie continued. This I the trans
action which Mr. .!. O. Carter i-hariu-tcil.cd
as an "Illegal continuation,"
and fiom which he draws tho Injiiilous
and iiiijustitlahlu conclusion that the
Government cannot bo trusted to meet
IN engagements to the public ci editor
ii they mature. Wo are not picpaicd
to argue the point of law involved in
this continuance, but wo are fully satW
lled that the facts doiiolwarraiit'thu iu
fcicnce which Mr. Carter draws from It.
Now, Air. Kditor, to any person
who has read or will read the Loan
Act under which the bonds talked
of now issued it must appear that
the above quotation is the veiiest
quibbling. But the writer naively
remarks that lie is "not prepared
to argue tho point of law involved
in this continuance.' Certainly
not, for there is no room for argu
ment. Tins breach of law was the
main point in my letter. The writer
thinks it would pay the country to
make me a handsome, annual allow
ance lo maintain mq in a private
station whete I could not do any
possible barm. Hairing the allow
ance, which my modesty foices mo
to decline, I may say Hint this plan
is quite to my fancy. If I consulted
my own wishes entirely I should not
stand in :i position where 1 must
take the Advertiser' word. The
Advertiser writer should under
stand that any reputation 1 may
have as a financier came to me
unsought. I make no pretence in
that direction. I am constrained to
believe that this reputation was
earned largely by my habit of pay
ing what J -owed when it was due,
and this simple- rule has kept my
credit sound, and for that reason I
hao recommended tho Government
lo do the same. So far as the danger
exists of 1113 ever managing the
finances of this Kingdom is con
cerned, I simply have to say that the
day lias passed when I had such an
ambition and the fears of the Adver
tiser are quite groundless. Now, in
icgard to tho reply of, Mr. Neumann,
I can say that if he is correct I was
certainly at fault, and if so it is my
duty to apologize to any person con
cerned. J. 6. Cahti'ii.
Honolulu, Jan. 15, 1880.-
Eunoit Bulletin: A corres
pondent of your journal desires some
information about the Hawaiian
pioneer, John Young. Young was
a Scotchman. He was boatswain of
the American, bark Eleanore, which
was trading in the central and
Southern Pacific. The Eleanore
was at Kcnlakekua, on the 17th of
February, 1790. On this day Young
went ashore (consequently it will be
0(5 yeais the coming 17th of Febru
ary, since ho landed on theso
Islands). When lie attempted to
join his ship he was, much to his
surprise, forbidden to leave, by
Kaniehaineha I. The bark Eleanore
remained two days off Kcalakekua
Bay, firing guns for Young to re
turn, but the King would not per
mit him to go on board.
Young was an. ignorant seaman,
but nevertheless ho had great in
fluence over Kamchameha I. Ho
rose to bo a chief of consequence,
and to the last possessed the con
fidence of the people high and low.
At the time of the capture of John
Young, there were other white men
on the Islands runaways from
ships mostly of bad character, but
John Young, b' his moral and re
ligious knowledge, sujierior address,
and intelligence, quickly offset the
opinions Hie Hawaiian had formed
of the foreigners. Young was so
beloved by tho natives that they
would not permit his departure,
he was carefully guarded whenever
a vessel liovo in sight, and never
suffered to go alloal. Kamchameha
and other high chiefs made him
valuable presents of estates, etc.
In the year 1801 Young was ap
pointed governor of Hawaii. He
lived to a ripe old age.

THE CREAT OCEAN RACE.
Mr. Win. G. Irwin lcceived n
private letter from Sydney by the
Zcalandin, containing notes of the
great ocean btcamship race, from
which it appears that the Aluneda
gained fifty-two hours on tlw Zca-
ltudla botwuon Sim Fforoteco and
Sydney. Wo have been permitted
to use this communication.
The Alameda gained on tho Z(m
lttiidia as follows :
Sail l'laticlioo to Honolulu 10 lioitl'S
Honolulu to Auckland .-. . .25 hours
Auckland to Sydney 8 hour.
Total gain 52 horn
The Alameda made tho quickest
time ever made to Auckland by
twenty-live hours, and beat the
fastest time between Auckland and
Sydney seven hours. Captain Web
ber staled on his arrival here that
tho Alameda arrived in Sydney thir
teen hours ahead of the Zcalandin.
Two bulls, under two years old,
have been imported from Syracuse,
N. Y., for the Woodlawn Dairy and
Stock Company, nnd also one heifer,
Beatrix, for Mr. J. 11. Faty. These
are all thoroughbred Ilolsteins from
the best dairy stock in the world.
The animals were brought to San
Francisco by rail, and thence to
this poit by the barkentine Dis
covery, arriving in splendid order,
and nrc much admired by all who
have seen them. The Woodlawn
Dairy and Stock Company are agents
for tliis class of stock, which may
be had from Messrs. Smiths, Powell
and Lamb, Lakeside Fnrni, Syra

Honolulu agents. Jan. Ifilh.
THE BETHEL ANNUAL MEETING.
The annual business meeting of
the Bethel Union congregation was
held last evening, Mr. B, F. Dilling

Between eight and nine o'clock
this morning two Chinamen were to
be seen navigating a wagon across
the creek, close by the bridge on the
road leading from King street to the
Oahu jail. From a dozen to a score of
live ducks were iu the wagon, and a
sorry-looking nag was standing, half
divested of tackling, on the road,
looking the picture of equine misery
and penitence. The navigators were
up to their waists in the water, and
had no small difficulty in getting the
wheels of the vehicle over the snags
at the bottom of the creek. On the
shore hi three or four casks of poi,
their contents being lapped up by
the tide. Of the whole lately proud
equipage, only the ducks were scath
less of disaster indeed the situation
seemed a delightful one to them.
There was a laughing crowd of na
tives of all ages and sexes on tho
bridge, greatly enjoying the jcs'
pilikia, and a man told a reporter
what was the matter: "Chinese
fool ! His horse begin to back to
the water, and ho not get out to
catch it by fhe head, although there
were two of them in the wagon. He!
he! he! Yes, another Chinaman's
wagon went over on the other side
the other day, and fell higher than
this one." Ja"' 1",t'1'
THE POST OFFICE ROBBERY.
AIlltKST Of THOMAS 11. WAI.KI'.It.
Last evening Thomas B. Walker,
bricklayer, was arrested on a war
rant charging him with burglary.
Tho entry on the Station House slate
did not specify the time nnd place
of tho alleged offense, but it was
generally accepted that the arrest
was mado on account of the recent
Fost Office robbery. This current
impression was verified when the
prisoner was arraigned this morning
in the Folico Court. He had been
admitted to $l,r)0() bail,. provided by
Messrs. George Lucas and John F.
Bowler, for his appearance, and tho
Crown asking for a remand until
Saturday, ho was again released on
the same security, liablo to be called
I iu the meantime and the bail increas
ed if further developments of the
case warrant that. Although coun
sel had been spoken to by Walker
none had been retained up to his
J appearance in Court. Jan. 20th.
THE PRE38 LIBEL CASE.
Mlt. JOHKSTOK'B COMMtTTl'.l) l-Oll TltlAl,
AT Till: SUPltUME COUIIT.
Mr. Arthur Johnstone, editor of
the "Daily Honolulu Fress," was
arraigned in the Folico Court before
Justice Bickerton, January 21st,
charged on the sworn information
of His Excellency Faul Neumann,
Attorney-General of tho Kingdom,
with the offense of libel, for having
"published wilfully and maliciously
and with intent lo injure" Mr.
Neumann "in fame, reputation and
good name, and to bring him into
disgrace, abhorrence, odium, hatred,
contempt nnd ridicule,'" an article
in the paper above named, on Jan.
ICth, under the heading, "A Dead
Man's Word." Tho article said
that the Attorney-General, in his
letter in tin Hl'm.i;tin of the Nth
inst., "viitttally admits thai then
was an open account between tho
Government and Mr. Oakley," who
lately committed suicide, "and that
the Attorney-General proposed to
strike off about SI 18 and pay the
bill." Further on it charged the
Attorney-General Villi attempting
to force a discount on Mr. Oakley
on a note for SI, 700 made by the
King, which it was the duty of the
Attornoy-Gcncral to pay. It also
gave ati alleged statement of Mr.
Oakley to tho effect that Mr. Neu
mann had demanded 8300 of him
for himself before he would pay the
note, and added that "there is a lie
out somewhere, and Mr. Oakley's
version of the affair can lie proven."
Messrs. W. A. Whiting and F.
M. Hatch appeared for the King
and Air. S. B. Dole for the defense.
The fhst witness for tho prosecution
Fitn. Joxr.s, who recognized a
paper produced as a copy of the
"Press" of the ICth inst., delivered
at the Hawaiian Hotel by the regu
lar carrier. Cross-examined I am
bar-keeper at the Hawaiian Hotel.
David Daytox I am the Deputy
Marshal of the kingdom: had read
tho article in J'ress of the issue pro
duced; knew Mr. Johnstone was
editor of that paper because he
(witness) called at his house with
Mr. Neumann on Sunday last. Mr.
Neumann informed witness of the
article published in the "Press" the
day previous that concerned him
self. Mr. Neumann asked Mr.
Johnstone if ho was responsible for
that publication, and ho said he
was. Mr. Neumann asked John
stone if he would be willing to re
tract it if it was shown that the
article was inaccurate, or he used
these words, " if it was shown to
him that it was untruthful." Mr.
Johnstone said that these matters
were given to him and that he was
working for a party, and he could
not do anything until he consulted
those parties, and he would be able
to let him know the following day,
between 11 and 12 o'clock, as he
would have to see his attorney be
fore doing anything. Do know Mr.
Neumann as Attorney-General of
Cross-examined by Mr. Dole
Mr. Neumann said that he knew the
editor's business, and asked him if
ho would be willing to givo the
names of the parties. Johnstone
cither admitted or said that tho ai ti
de was written at the instance of
other parties. Q. Was not that
tiio main point, the names of his
informants? A. No; I think it
was altogether that he wanted to
consult with them.
Faul Ni:u.ianx I am Attorney
General for the Kingdom ; am com
plainant in tliis case ; have examined
this article ; saw it first on Saturday
evening, in this paper (Press pro
duced) ; believe I am tho party
named in article ; am certainly the
party who wrote the account inserted
therein that was sent to the Bulle
tin. Q. Will you ' examine the
statements in that articlo and state
what is true or false? A. Tho
statement mado by me in the Bulle
tin is true, also tho statement made
in the "Advertiser" that Oakley
had no cloim against the Govern
ment. It is not true that it was my
duty to pay any claim of Mr.
Oakley, nor did I ever have any
moneys in my hands to pay it. It
is true that I struck out some items
of the bill not presented by Mr.
Oakley, for I had nothing whatever
to do with him in the matter nor
did I attempt to force any discount
on Mr. Oakley. I never demanded
from Mr. Oakley S.100 or any money
for getting the money paid to him,
or for getting his claim paid to him,
or for anything else. I do not know
what Mr. Oakley might havo said,
but I had no claim to settle with
him, cither honestly, justly, unjustly,
or otherwise. Tho statement of Mr.
Oakley's version of tiio affair being
capable of being proven is utterly
untrue ; there is not n word of truth
in it. The claim of Oakley was for
work done under contract for cer
tain houses in Alakca street. I do
not know of any written contract ;
all I know is what I have heard. I
heard that Oakley built some build
ings thcro for tho Queen. I remem
ber that Curtiiis Wallace came to
mo and showed mo a note that Mr.
Oakloy had made for S300, and
stated to me that Mr. Oakley had
soino money coming to him for
building those houses, and that if
Onklcy could got that inonc.v tits I
note would be paid. IIo (Wallace) i
asked me to sco tho Queen, us he
was in need of money, and try to ,
get that for htm. I told him 1 I
should, or sec him in n few days j
afterward. I then told him he
could have the money because there
was that and more mouey duo Mr.
Oakley, but that I could not ndvisc
Her Mujcsty to pay the S300 or use
Mr. Oakley's nolo as an offset, but
if ho would have Mr. Oakley sign
nn order that 1 would advise her to
accept the order as a receipt, and
give it to him. Mr. Wallace asked
mo lo write tiie order ; 1 wrote it
out and handed it to him, and he
left. Ho brought it back subse
quently, signed by Mr. Oakley ; I
directed him to endorse it (it was
payable lo his order), and sent for
Mrs. Swrin, who was attending to
tiie Queen's business. I. am not
sure whether Mis. Swan paid it lo
him or handed the money to mo, but
:il any rate il was paid to him and
the order given by Mrs. Swan to me
witli orders to keep it for her until
the whole affair was settled. (Order
dated April 27, 1885, pioduced in
book nnd identified b' witness.)
Some time afterward Mr. J. S.
Walker went to the office and asked
mo whether I held Mr. Oakley's
affair in my hands for settlement on
behalf of the Queen. I told him I
did not, and related to him what I
have stated here just now, and that
was all that I had to do with it. Mr.
Walker asked me whether I would
havo Mr. Oakley's account settled ;
ho spoke to me about Mr. Oakley's
necessities. I told him 1 would go
over to see the Queen. The Queen
told nie she would pay the money at
once, but was not sure whether the
bill was correct or not, and asked
me to look over it. I learned (hat
His Majesty liad given Oakley a note
for $1700, which represented work
done up to date when note was
given. I thought Oakley could use
it until his business was "settled with
the Queen, but there was no money
due to Mr. Oakley until the woik
Mil. Dole objected that witness
was speaking of what he had only
heard. The Court ruled that, in
testifying to his own actions, it was
competent for witness to give evi
dence of What he had heard which
diruotcd his actions.
Witness Mrs. Swan gave me the
note and said she placed the note
with Mr. McIntjTC, and in case no
settlement was mado cither return
the note to her or to Mr. Mclntyrc.
I tofd Mr. Walker to bring nie a
statement of Mr. Oakley's claim,
which he did. I went over the bill
and found that $:J00 had been paid
to Mr. Oakley and must be deducted
from the bill. (This was said to
Walkor.) In looking over the bill
I told Mr. Walker there were some
items in it which under no con
sideration I should advise Her
Majesty to pay. My impression is
that these items amounted to $M8,
$220, or $1781 cannot recollect.
(In answer to counsel witness said
his impression was that it was S178).
There was some correction mado by
them I suppose by Mr. Walker.
Mr. W. said Mr. Oakley would not
consent to strike off items which I
would not allow. I cannot tell
what items they were some legal
expenses, I believe. At any rate I
approved of bill to date with tiie
exception of items stated, and told
Mr. Walker if Mr. Oakley con
sented to that I should send word
to the Queeiij and it should be paid
at once. I heard subsequently from
Mr. Walker or Mr. Mchityre that
Mr. Oakley declined to accept it.
The matter rested there until one
day Mr. Oakloy came in ; I did not
know him ; he introduced himself to
me nnd asked about this affair, and
asked as a favor if I could not have
this thing settled. He offered to
pay me a hundred dollars if I did.
I told him that I could not accept a
cent from him that I was not hi3
attorney, and if ho consented to
accept the bill as I had it ho could
have his money nt once. I pointed
out to him that if he applied the
money he offered to me, to the ac
count, there would not be a differ
ence of but a few paltry dollars,
and that he had better accept it.
He said, " I will see." A short
time afterward he came again to me
and asked me, "Why do you not
get that money for me?" I told
him that if lie accepted the amount
which I had told Mr. Walker I had
advised the Queen to pay lie could
have it. He said, "I cannot." I
told him I was sorry for it, but I
could not be bothered with the
affair any more, and not to como
back to me about it. 1 am under
the impression that I returned tho
bill to him, but may have given it
to Mr. Walker. His Majesty's
note was returned to Mr. Mchityre.
Mr. Wallace came to mo iu Dec,
'81, or Jan., '8,r). This took placo
aftor the order I think it must
havo been in May, not later than
Juno. That was the last interview
I ever had with Oakley on tho
mutter. I went to tho Coast on tho
1st of Aug. and returned on the 8th
of October. After my return a
man by tho namo of Mills a me
chanic came to nie, I think tho
week before Oakley's suicide, and
asked mo if I had settled Oakloy's
bill. IJfo showed mo ti note of JMn
Oakloy's for S'100 written on the
inside of mi envelope. Do repre
sented to me his needs nnd usked if
I would not collect it for hltn, and
as there was money coming to Mr.
Oakley I said if ho got Mr. Oakloy's
order 1 would got it paid. At his
request I drow out a note for him
and told him if Mr. Oakley gave
that to him instead of the note I
would give it to him.
Q. Can you not explain some
thing more particularly about the
items which you wanted to throw
outi1 A. Nothing except the one
item about law expenses, and I totd
Mr. Walker it was perfectly pre
posterous to have an such item in
a housebuilding bill.
Cross-examined This copy of
letter in Bulletin is correct. 1 was
Attorney-General all through tho
happening of these uvcnls. I wa
acting for Wallace but not for the
Queen. Q. "If not acting for the
Queen, how did you come to advise
her not to pay the bill?" A. "Who
told vou I advised the Queen?"
Mr. Dole "Here it is in evidence."
I did not advise her, but it was my
duty to give her a good receipt. Q.
"Why did you draw tiie order on
j'ourself?" A. "Because in any
circumstances that might have arisen
I did not want the Queen to ap
pear." Mr. Mills paid me
ten percent; I did not chargo
him nnything, but he insisted
that I should be paid for
my trouble. Have forgotten what
the items struck out were for; think
some items for material weie on the
debit side which should have been
on the credit side. To the best of
my recollection tho nmount was S 178.
Q. "You say S 1 18 in the Bulletin?"
A. "I may have made a mistake."
There was no explanation about the
legal expenses. Walker may have
told me. If a carpenter or a plum
ber brings mo a bill for work and I
find legal expenses I strike it out.
I do not know that I struck out of
bill anything for mechanical worli
or material. I told Walker L could
not pay bill as it was. I cannot tell
what time the Queen put it in my
hands ; it was either in May or June.
I declined an offer of Oakley to
have the matter arbitrated ; I will
not say what my reason was. When
Mills came to me I was not acting
for the Queen ; I was not acting for
anybody. Mr. Mills came to nie
and said ho was iu a financial strait ;
told him "j'oucan get your money
any time provided, you get Oakley's
order." 1 cannot state when Wallace
first came to me. The order was
written quite awhile after Wallace
first came. If I remember right,
is lies somewhere between January
and March, but I am not certain.
I know that he was there toward
the end of March, and 1 told
him the Court term was about
to commence, and I could not
do anything till after that. I can
not tell what day Mr. Walker came.
The King gave Oakloy the note ; it
was to be returned when the account
was settled. The occasions men
tioned in evidence are the only ones
on which Oakley spoke to me.
The prosecution rested here, and
the counsel for the defense having
nothing to offer, Mr. Whiting moved
for committal. Accordingly Mr.
Johnstone was committed for trial
to the Supremo Court, at tho pre
sent term if counsel on both sides
consent. He gave bail in the
amount of $1002 for appearance.

The high mass peformed at tho
Roman Catholic Cathedral yesterday

A largo tent is being pitched, and

Alakea and Hotel streets, which will

California, for a series of religious
meetings, beginning to-morrow nt

past few years Elder Ilealey has
held similar meetings in all tho lead
ing cities of California. Speaking
of these meetings, tho Oakland

of that region are not slow to take
advantage of tho privilege."
