THE CHIEF TOPIC.
The chief topic of convcrstation
at tho King's ball last night was the
reported request of the King to his
Ministers yesterday afternoon, to
tender their portfolios before ho
took his departure for Hawaii to
day, on II. B. M. S. Caiolinc. It
was also reported that His Majesty
refused to hold further relations
with his Ministers. The breach is
said to have been caused by offens
ive and insulting articles published
in the "Gazette" against the Sov
ereign, the "Gazette" being the
recognised Government organ.
The departure of King Kalakaua
on II. B. M. S. Caroline, this morn
ing, was announced by tho thunder
ing of one hundred and five guns,
(from four war ships and the shore
battery.) The wharves and vessels
which commanded a view of the row
of war vessels, were pretty well
thronged with people. At 10 o'clock
precisely, the Caroline weighed an
chor, and within a few seconds of half
past 10 o'clock the order to "stand
by to man the yards" was dis
tinctly heard. At 10:30 o'clock, to
the second, the King loft his boat
house in one of his own boats and
was rowed at a steady rapid rate, to
tho starboard companion ladder of
the Caroline. Before tho King had
reached the ship the yards of the
six men-of-war, namely II. B. M. S.
Caroline, U. S. S. Flagship Vanda
lia, 11. I. R. M. S. Razboynik, II. I.
J. M. S. Tsukuba, U. S. S. Adams,
and II. B. M. S. Cormorant, were
manned, and as soon as tho King
reached the deck of tho Caroline
the Hawaiian flag was unfurled from
the main-mast of the British men-of-war,
and the cannons began to
thunder. Tho shore battery, the
Caroline, the Vandalia, the Razboy
nick and Tsukuba all fired 21 guns
each at the samo time, filling the air
with smoko and deafening sounds.
The first gun fired by the Tsukuba
knocked one of the sailors off into
the water by the concussion, aud
the third shot knocked off another
Jap. When the firing had ceased
the Caroline turned around prettily
on her heel, pointed her nose sea
ward, and glided out through the
passage. The Caroline will land
the King at Kailua, Hawaii, and
then proceed lo Esquimalt, Victoria,

Thursday, May 3rd.
The Court opened at 10 a. m.,
when the case of the Minister of the
Interior vs. Estate of Pauahi Bishop
was resumed from Tuesday last.
Judge Widemann called and
sworn: My acquaintance with the
land tenure of this country com
menced about forty-oue and a half
or forty-one and three-fourth years
ago. I was chief clerk in the Inte
rior Olllce when I first resided in
Honolulu. I went into tho Interior
Olllce in 18G5. I remember a tran
saction in regard to Opu during my
incumbency; it was between Ka
mehameha V and the Minister of
tho Interior. Dr. F. W. Hutchin
son was the Minister. Dr. Hutchin
son instructed me to get tho deeds
drawn up for tho lots that he had
bought from Kamehamcha V and
others to build a palace on. The lots
were at Makiki. There were three
or four lots to be bought. This sale
was not carried out. I told Dr.IIutch
inson that Kamehamcha was not in
a position to execute a deed, as
ho had convoyed all his title to
these lands to Stephen Spencer and
C. C. Harris as Assignees for the
payment of his debts. Mr. Harris
was at that time in Washington and
Spencer was in Loudon. I under
stood that the King was the owner
of all lands. I don't think he was
absolute owner of the lands. The
chiefs were owners, but they ac
knowledged ownership under the
King. The mahcle divided the
lands'bctween the King and Chiefs,
and the King divided with the Gov
ernment. The Government did not
own any lands to my knowledge,
nor did they hold any titles lo lands
until after the mahcle. The lands
so given to it are recorded in the
mahcle book. I never heard that
the King was subject to tho Chiefs
in regard to divisions of land before
Mr. Bishop called and sworn : I
came here in October, 181G. Dr.
Judd was Minister of Finance, and
John Young was Minister of tho In
terior. I don't know very definitely
what property the Government held
at that time, but only from conver
sation with Dr. Judd aud others.
I served a month in the Interior of
fice immediately after my arrival.
The Government had scarcely any
propoi ty of its own. My impres
sion was nt that time, that the lands
belonged to the King and Chiefs.
I don't know of any purchases of
land by the Government before tho
mahcle. Dr. j tutu gave mo to un
derstand that ho had been woiking to
get piopcrty, in order to carry on
the Government. i noire Know or
any land sales by the Government
before the mahcle. The Minister of
Interior instructed nic to purchase
somo land in that vicinity. I pur
chased from Mr. Horn and Mr. Wil
kinson, and also sold a piece that 1
owned there. One piece is where
Mr. Lishman now lives.
Maui called and sworn: I live
at Makiki, have been lliero 23 years,
I was the konohiki of Makiki. It
included tho wholo of Makiki. 1
had charge of Opu. Kauiehameha
V put mo in charge of Opu. I went
there in 1805, I camo hero after
tho death of Kauiehameha IV, and
before Kauiehameha V was made
kimr. Prince Lot sent to Maui for

land. I was fivo years on John Ii's
land. I had chargo of Makiki also,
wo worked regular konohiki days on
Makiki. No one has had poscssion
of Opu but Kamehamcha and his
people. I don't know anything
about Opu before I was konohiki.
John II was konohiki before me, also
Queen Knlnmsi, then Kameha
mcha V took it himself. John Ii
was konohiki under Knmehamoha
V. I was born before Capt.
Cook camohcre. Was largo enough to
run around. When Kamehamcha
Idled, I was a man grown. This
land camp from Iloapllikane. We
went to Kauai at the time of the in
surrection of John Humuhumu and
Kalaniopuu, whero wo had a battle.
When wo came back, Hoapilikanc
being very old left this land of Opu,
and Maunalua to Kameliamcha V.
Hoapillkano died in in 1810. I was
living with Hoapilikanc and when
he went back to Kauai 1 went with
him. The land was given to Ka
mehamcha V. through the interven
tion of David Malo. It was the
original intention of Iloapili to
give the land to Kinau, but David
Malo said to him, why don't you
give it to your grandson, ho has noth
ing, and Kinau is rich. I think
Iloapili died before Kinau. I am not
sure. Opu consists of Taro and
Kula, land also some ponds makai.
There were revenues derived from
tho land which I collected and paid
over to Kauiehameha. Kamehamcha
had 50 milk cows, and -10 working
bullocks runnhigon tho land. There
were no other cattle running free on
the land ; all the others had to pay.
Kameliamcha did not allow any, one
to catch tho oopu in the stream, nor
gather the fruit, unless ho was pre
sent, and divided what was got. I
collected about 8700 a year from all
the lands of Kamehamcha that I had
charge of. I camo down here just
after the smallpox time, and took
charge of John Ii's land, then Ka
mehamcha V wanted me to take
charge of his. land, and I told him
that ho had bettor speak to John li
Makanui called and sworn : I was
born at Makiki in 1815. My father's
name was Pi ; he was a konohiki of
Makiki under Kamehameha V. He
was konohiki for a long time. He
held the position before I was born,
and I am the youngest of 13 chil
dren. He died in 1855 or 5G, and
held the position until he died.
There were a number of pieces of
land belonging to Kamehameha V.
Jno. Ii was the guardian of Kame
hameha aud had charge of his prop
erty, and my father was under him.
I worked on those lands when I was
a boy. I worked konohiki days and
did not get paid in money. lie af
terwards stated that ho did not un
derstand the question and said I did
not work on the land, my father
was the konohiki and I being his
son, was not required to work.
Other people on the land worked
konohiki days. During Maui's time
as konohiki, the land was leased to
the Government, and that put an
end to the konohiki work. No one
was allowed to run animals on the
land without paying for it, except
Kamehameha. Iloapili was the
owner of Opu. I never saw Iloa
pili, but my father has told
me that he was the owner. Poha
kuloa is just makai side of Punahou.
Mr. Hatch here rested his case.
Professor Alexander was then
called by the Court and asked about
the lists of lands setting apart the
King's and Chief's portion, and the
King's and Government's portion.
Mr. Alexander stated that the lands
divided between the Chiefs were not
in that list. Makiki is only a topo
graphical division ; it is not an ili or
ahupuaa. The original gift of Pu
nahou contained the whole ili of
Mr. Hatch asked if there was any
evidence of how the names of these
lands originated, or by whom?
No ; they go back to prc-historic
