11 is my opinion that all Mich persons

receipt with the woids "(Jualllled lo
Vole " upon it, which he must sign and
in plaeo of the amount of taxes ho must

Inspectors of Election at their sessions
picvlous to the election, ttionnme of the

At the general Election lo be held on

Nathan "VVh.i.foxo, sworn : I was
in the Post Ofllce, as Money Order
Clerk, on the 2nd and 3rd of Janu
ary. On Saturday evening, Jan.
2nd, 1 left the oflice about 5 o'clock ;
I left every thing all right ; I had a
safe there ; I left it locked ; I set
the combination. I next 'Went to
tho ofllce on Sunday morning at 7
o'clock ; I found one of the drawers
that belonged in the safe out on the
tabic in front of the safe ; I found
the safe locked, and the combination
a little injured, so that I could not
set it again. I found Mr. Marcos,
the policeman, there ; I stayed there
all day. Mr. Peterson was not there ;
lie came back about 1 o'clock in the
afternoon. The Minister of the
Interior sent for Mr. More, who
applied pliers to the knob so that
the door was opened. I had a key
to tho inner door; I think I took out
tho key of the inner j I did not take
it to unlock the door. The two
drawers wero taken out, tho one I
found on the table and another.
They were taken out, and a lot of
money. One drawer was locked in
the safe ; I had one key ; I do not
know who opened tho other. That
drawer was forced open ; I had in it
some.- private money of my own.
Tim other drawer contained a lot of
coin and certificates of deposit
belonging to tho Government ; the
drafts were all there ; I and Mr.
Peterson had tho combination of
that safo ; I do not know of any
other person having tho combination.
$180 certificates, $1,375 gold coin,
87 American Currency, $482 1 think
in Hawaiian silver coin, were in tbc
Cross'cxamincd by Mr. Ilntcli :
There were books kept in my safe'
which I keep tho money order ac
count in, mid all the books I use.
There were no books except those I
keep, kept in it. I think it was about
7 o'clock 1 went, because I was
called. I usually go there on .Sunday
morning; I found Mr. Marcos, Air.
Swain, and I think David Maiiaku.
Tills money had been in the safe, I
do not know how long, ns we are
always paying out and receiving
money; there was not very much
more money than usual in at that lime ;
none of the amounts given belonged
tome, $180, $l,37'i and $7. No
attempt, was made lo open lliu safes
Unit morning until Mr. Peterson
came; I tried Ihc combination when
I first got there, but could not turn
il. The disc outside of tho knob
had been pounded and indented, so
that the knob would not turn; was
not there previous Saturday night
after ft o'clock ; I left two clerks
there working at live o'clock.
"When no mail is about leaving, or
mail about to arrive, the usual time
to shut up on Saturday is 2 o'clock ;
employees are usually all gone at
1 o'clock ; I know of no owrk that
was on hand that Saturday night, to
keep the clerks late at woik. The
safe I use is a Magncso-Calci, made
in lloslon. Mr. Peterson did not
say anything that I recollect about
Hie business Hint Sunday afternoon.
I found Hie two doors of the other
safe wide open ; I do not know what
was kept in that safe, except money
received for salcof stamps, supposed
to be kept there. I do not know what
kind of a safe that was. It was a
very old one; had a combination
lock ; 1 never knew the combination
of that safe.
Mit. C. O. Bi:i!(iKii, sworn: I
was in the Honolulu Post Olllcc on
the morning of Jan. 3rd ; I saw the
safe ; it was opened by Mr. More ;
I am agent for safe ; 1 understand
what is necessary for me to under
stand about combinations; I noticed
an indentation on the safe ; the in
dentation must have been made
after the safe was opened ; the lock
was in perfect order ; tho effect of
the indentation was that the dial
was so tight that we could not turn
it ; the blow must have been given
after the safe hail been opened ; the
dial would just turn it far enough to
lock the safe again ; it stood on
"ten," butdonotlrciiioiiiber exactly:
the blow may have been struck be
fore it was te-lockcd or after ; after
the blow, the door could not be
Cross-examined by Hatch: It
was a fire-proof safe ; a three num
ber safe ; the last number was fixed ;
it was numbers not letters ; you can
change any number on the lock ; I
did not examine the old safe; I
looked at it; there was a combina
tion and key, both on the outer
door ; it was an old style safe.
Mn. Swain, sworn: I am de
livery clerk at the Post Olllcc. I
was there on the 2nd January. Tho
olllce usually closes at 2 on Satur

inventory of the olllcc. On that
evening I was taking an inventory
of stock of tiic olllcc ; Mr. Maiiaku
was with me; Mr. Peterson came
in about seven o'clock ; he did no
work then ; lie told me lie was going
to write his cash book. After Ma
iiaku and T would take an inventory
of stock, we were to give it to Mr.
Peterson ; we finished our work
about o'clock ; we finished our
work, left it locked up with our
books in the safe; Mr. Peterson
had been in at intervals during the
evening; we left Mr. Peterson
there whe'n we went out ; there is a
light fastened under the verandah
on Merchant street; I went up
Bethel to King street ; I do not re
member whether the light was burn
ing while we were working in the
Cross-examined: Mr. Peterson
was doing nothing when we left that
night ; ho intimated ho had to write
up his cash book. There was noth
ing I know of to prevent him doing
that during the evening ; I remember
of him going in and out twice. Ho
seemed to be out more than in. I
paid no special attention to his
movements, I was attending to my
own work. He seemed to be doing
no work ; at times when he came in
he talked to us, seemed to have his
senses. Appeared as usual. Ma
iiaku and I had keys of the outer
door. Wc are never in the olllce
evenings except when thcro is
olllce work to do. I did not see
Mr. Peterson take off his books that
evening while I was there. His safe
was in the back part of the office.
I did not notice it when I went out.
Money received at the window was
kept in that safe. I do not know
how much money was in his safo.
Every evening the cash was turned
over to him. I would know by re
ferring to the books how much
money was turned over that evening.
David Manaku, sworn: 1 am

count book was given him to enter
in his cash book. He has an ollicc

lie kept his books, some in tliu safe
downstairs, some in his desk up
stairs. I had conversation with Mr.
Peterson that evening. I cannot
ny if he had been drinking; did not
look like il lo me. Spoke quite na
tural to us. The stamp account is
taken every day. He told me a few
days before that lie wanted the in
ventory of all the stock in the olllce.
That caused me lo stay all thai Sat
urday afternoon. The invcnloiy
made that day, that is the part made
that day pait of it shows on tho
stamp account book. I got through
witli the stamp account the first
tiling in the evening. We handed it
to Mr. Peterson when we left tho
olllce. For a few nights previous, I
was there till sometimes half-past 11.
Mr. Peterson was not there on these
occasions. I did not know if lie was
coining down Ihat evening. On
Sunday morning, 1 got there about
half-past (!. (Witness named a
number of persons lie found there).
Mr. Peterson was not there then:

I was in the Post Ofllce Sunday
morning, January 3rd. My expe
rience in safes is that I have done a
good deal of work about their lucks.
I found one safe all right. It was
open. I examined the lock on the
outsido door. I am positive there
was no violence done to this safe.
The othorsafe could not be opened
by hand. The dial could not be
turned by hand. I used an instru
ment to turn the dial. Tho safe
seemed to have opened, closed and
then stuck. "Willi reference to the
locks of both outer and inner doors
there were nok signs of violence. I
could have discovered an inspicture
if any violence had been done. The
safe could not be opened after the
blow was struck, except ns I des
cribed. After opening the safe, the
inside was so that there evidently
iiad been violence used in opened
the drawers. It looked as if two
screw drivers had been used. It
took me about five minutes to open
the safe after I got there. It must
have been about eleven or half-past
David Dayton, sworn : I was in
the Post Olllcc, on Sunday morning,
the 3rd of this month. I made a
minute examination after I got
there. 1 found the hasp of the
niauka door had been pried off. The
upper screw showed bright. The
bolt of the lock was bnck. The
hasp had been taken off without
being forced off by the lock bolt.
The hasp showed ns if taken off
with the door open. (Witness here

which lie found the safes, which is
substantially the same as given b

between him and Mr. Peterson. )
Kai.ai:i.oa, sworn: I work in Hie

Mr. Peterson opened tho door. Then
we both went in together. The first
thing I did was to light a lamp. Mr.
Peterson went towards the telephone
to ask how far off the Kinau was.
Passing along I saw that "Willfong's
safe was open ; I was alarmed at
seeing it open and looking on the
floor saw some certificates. I then
went to look at niauka door to see
how that was. Called to Peterson,
who followed me. Found the door
closed, but opened easily. Then Peter
son took the lamp mid started to look
at his own safe, and found it open.
We did not go close up to this safe.
It was beforo daylight ; wo were
alarmed. Wc went then to the
other room ; there was a hammer
belonging to tho ofllce ; Mr. Peter
son told me to strike a blow on the
safe ; I did so. The door was shut
when he told mc lo strike the blow.
Wc went again to the mauka door.
Ho told mo to take the- hasp off,
which I did witli a claw hammer.

come in afterwards, and finding the
place lobbed, they might think
wc had perpetrated the robbery. He
told mc to take It off, and it coin
cided witli my views to do so. I
did it as soon as lie had made the
suggestion. It did occur to me that
it was wrong to strike the safo, but
I was. confused and excited. The
money we found on the lloor was
left there. Akau came in answer to
Mr. Peterson's telephone. Next a
native policeman, by name of Jack,
