The Houso must clear itsuf of the
Noble Luhiait said this was si very
important matter. He distinctly
dented having taken a bribe. Kn
tihi gave him S." as u gift. It Ittin
eil out to be Sol). Being a eluigy
mun he was often in the Imhil of re
ceiving gifts. If he had tiinUTntm.il
it was a bribe he would not lime
taken the money. No influence had
been brought on him with routinl to
hist vote on the Chinese amendment.
He thought that Noble Hitchcock
felt sore against him and wished
him to be punisln d -eveioly because
' he bad voted to sustain the colfee
bill veto. -
Kep. Nakaleka was much surpris
ed at the report, as it looked to him
that the committee had gone beyond
its power. Charges were only prc
feried against Reps. Kamauoha and
Kaulti, but the committee had also
brought in charges against Noble
Luhiait and Rep. Nawahinc. Then
again the committee was at vatiancc
as there was a majority and a mino
rity report. The Constitution docs
not give the House authority to ex
pel its members, but there is a
Houso rule which says that the Le
gislature may expel any member
for cause. He moved both reports
be indefinitely postponed..
Kep. Kamattoha said the charge
against liim was that he had accept
ed a bribe to influence and change
bis vole. This he denied, he did
not change his vote, as ho had been
against the Chinese amendment
from llrst to last. Therefore the
allegations fall to the ground.
Noble Widetnnnn thought those
accused should have all the time
necessary to talk in
Minister Ashford said within an
hour and a half the Kinau would
leave her wharf and a good many
members wished to go by her. Rp.
Kamauoha had been allowed lifteen
minutes, but he did not think he
had said anything so far.
Rep. C. Brown was much surpris
ed to hear the remarks of life Attorney-General,
they came' veiy poor.
To think he should allude to mem
bers private considerations, in such
an important matter. He moved
the five-minute rule be dispensed
wttb as regards the four members
who are charged.
The motion was adopted.
Rep Kamauoha continuing said
if he did take money it was notjts a
bribe. The money given to him by
Rep. Kauhi was a present and after
ho had voted. He was not guilty of
Rep. C. Brown said it seemed
strange to him that nati e Ilawai
ians sent here who were thought
above the average should be in such
a fix. They know what this money
was given to them for, and it is iin
possibleforthemtogotout of it. Are
550 bills in the habit of jumping into
people's pockets? He agieetl with
the sentimene of Noble Hitchcock
that every one in this affair should
go out of this House. Those born
here under the Hawaiian flag will
show by example to-day that the
Hawaiian must do right.
Rep. Nawahine said if a man was
found guilty of bribery he should
be punished to the full extent. He
explained to the committee that he
received the money but not as a
bribe. It would be a terrible thing
for a man in his station to have to
stand before this House and be cen
sured. He met Kaubi down town
and while drinking a milk shake it
appears that Kaubi put a $50 bill in
his pocket. He did not know it was
there until later in the evening when
three members of the House came
to enquire about it. He went to his
vest and there found the $50 bill.
It was put there without his know
ledge. His case he thought was a
very slight one. He was willing to
abide by the decision of the House.
. Rep. KaUhane said the whole
matter had caused him a great deal
of grief us the members charged
were native Hawaiians. A further
source of grief was that three Min
isters of the Gospel were elected to
.this House and two of them are
among those charged with bribery.
He signed the minority report and
felt it his duty to-do so for the good
of the members charged, that it
might be an example.
Rep. Kauhi said the committee
had exceeded their duty. Then
again they had not done their duty
by leaving out Rep. Kalaukoa who
he thought was just as much in the
wrong as Luliiau and iMiwahine.
There was not a wdrd said against
Rep. Kalaukoa. There was no ovi-
dence that money had come to linn
from Chinese. Kaubi spoke at great
length, but theie was nothing but
xjepetition in his speech.
Noble Widcmann was going to
vote as a representative of Muni and
not let his personal feelings bo
brought in. He believed "that
justice should be done though
the heavens fall." All but
one had admitted iccciving 850
from Kauhi. After the speech by
Rep. Kauhane they should not let
their personal feelings influence
Minister Ashford said how he
should vote on this matter had har
rasscd hint very much since he took
his seat. But after careful consid
eration he had come to a conclusion
which satisfied himself, and he be
lieved was in accordance with a ma
jority of the Iliiitbc. Willi icgard
to Kauhi and Kamauoha no doubt
could exibt, they have merited ex
pulsion. Luhiau admitted he re
ceived 850 from Chinese, and he
did not see how the House could let
hint go scot free. With regard to
Nawahinc there was u doubt in his

Rep. C. Biown said every mem
ber should be perfectly, satisfied in
his mind before lecording his vote.
Rep. Nakaleka was doubted if the
committee had a right to bring in
charges against Luhiau and Nawa
hine. They were only told to in
vestigate charges against Kauhi and
Noble Smith read the resolution
showing the power of the commit
tee. Noble Hitchcock had based the
minoritv report on the evidence
heard. He then read the evidence
of Nawahine before the committee.
Rep. Paehaolo doubted whether
the House had a right to expel mem
bers under the Constitution.
Noble Widemaun said Article 51
of the Constitution reads, "The
Legislature may punish its own
members for disorderly behavior"
If these charges were not disorderly
behavior, he did not know what was.
If they adopted a resolution to tar

On Sept. 8th, in the columns of the
Bui.i.ktin was an item stating the
fact that a school teacher named
Kupaliee, residing in Putin, Hawaii,
bad been missing since the 3d, and
no trace of him could be found.
The steamer W. G. Hall arrived
yesteiday afternoon with Mr. A. P.
Peterson, Deputy Attorney-General,
who has been attending Court at
Kau. From that gentleman and our
Kuu correspondent, wo present the
following facts which show that a
most loul murder has been commit
ted. On the 3d of Sept. Kapahce was
waylaid and murdered while on his
way to the residence of Deputy
Sheriff Kldart. Being missed a
search was made, and on the 5th his
body was found wedged in between
some rocks about a mile from where
it was supposed he was waylaid.
The body was(iu a frightful condi
tion and looked ns if it had been
uounded with stones. It had been
stripped of the pants. Sheriff Hitch
cock, who was in Knit at the time,
hastened to Puna and at once began
a thorough investigation. Two
Chinamen were suspected and ar
rested. One of them owns a storo
in Puna and it is said had a grudge
against Knpahee, an ex-policeman,
owing to the latter having some lime
ago taken proceedings against him
for trading-without a licence. The
Chinaman Ah Hop by name was
taken to II1I0 jail.
The other man Aseu supposed to
be the principal in the affair was ar
rested at Pahala on the 8th inst. by
a policeman and taken to the lock
up at Waiohinu. On the following
morning he made his escape and was
making his way seawards when he
was biirrounded, and finding escape
impossible, thiew himself head first
on the ground several times. He
was again lodged in jail and tried
to hang himself by means of a
blanket which he tore up into snips.
The prisoner was prevented from
cnirying out his intention, and then
made a statement, confessing that
be had assisted in the murder of
Knpahee. He Hied to bring in a
native preacher naineu JvuinoKu,
wno had been a witness in the case
ab ve mentioned, but no import
ance is attached to this part ot his
On the 12th inst., Aseu was taken
before Mr. Justice McCully who,
afier examination, committed the
prisoner for trial to the November
lerni of Court at Wnimea. The fol
lowing day Aseu iu charge of Cap
tain Felhbeur was placed on board
the steamer W. G. Hall to be
bronchi to Oahu jail and there con
fined until his trial. Fchlbchr states
that the prisoner acted very strange
ly on the journey from the lock-up
10 the steamer.
About an hour after the steamer
left Honuapo the prisoner died.
Everything possible was done to
prolong his life b' Dr. Oliver who
was on boaid but without avail. It
is supposed the man took poison.
Arriving at Kaawaloa the body of
Aseu was taken ashore, where Dr.
Oliver removed the stomach, and
the remains were buried. The sto
was brought to Honolulu and will be
analysed by Prof. A. B. Lyons of
Oahu College. Sept. 15.

hauled upon the Marine Railway
this morning. Her shoe, as previ

DEATH DF REV. G. B. WHIPPLE. 1
Many persons in the Ilawaiinn
Islands will regret to learn of the
Uealh of Rev. Geoigo II. Whipple.
The following is from the "Living
Church" of Aug. 11 lb.:
The obsequies of the laic Rev. G.
B. Whipple, chaplain of St. Mary's
Hall, Knribault, and vice-president
of the Hoaid of Trulces of the State
Institutions located in that city, who
died at Nantucket, Mass.. Thurs
day, July 10th, took place from the
Cathedral of Our Merciful Saviour,
Faribault, Tuesday afletno-ui, July
24th, and were attended by a vast
concourse of people leprosentnig all
classes of citizens, each of whom
was a sincere mourner.
The Rev. George Bray ton Whip
ple was born at Adams, Jefferson
county, N. Y., June 2G, 1830. Mr.
Whipple was lilted for colli gu whi'c
quite young, and graduated at col
lege while still a boy. After leav
ing college he entered a bank as
bookkeeper, but soon left and shipp
ed on board a whaling vessel at New
Bedford. Tiring of a sea-faring life,
he left tho ship, with the full con
sent of his captain, at the Sandwich
Islands, and spent about live years
at Kauai as n bookkeeper at first,
and finally as teacher in charge of
one of the government schools.
During 1858, at the request of his
father, who was'in delicate health,
Mr. Whinple returned home. In
18G0, he went to Faribault, became
a teacher and student in that insti
tution, graduated, and was ordained
a deacon m 18G3, and was advanced
to the priesthood during the same
year. August 15, 18G1, Mr. Whip
ple was married to Miss Mary J.
Mills. In 1805, accoaipanied by
his wife, he went to Honolulu, at
the request of Bishop Staley, and
remained there in charge of a par
ish and doing extended missionary
work until 18G9, when at the re
quest of his brother, Bishop Whip
pic, and in consequence of the fail
ing health of his mother, he return
ed to Faribault lo become book
keeper and chaplain of St. Mary's
Hull. Soon after he was called to
the rectorship of the parish of Ihe
Good Shepherd, which he lilled un
til November of 1870, when he re
signed in consequence of the ill
health of his wife and returned to
Honolulu. Iu 1873, he once more
returned to Faribault, this time lo
be the Bishop's private secretary,
and chaplain of St. Mai.y's, and
again he was called to the rector
ship of the palish of the Good Sbep
hcid, remaining rector of the parish
until 1884, when he resigned lo de
vote his eiifue time to the. chap
laincy and tieastirysliip of St.
Mary's Hall, po-.itions which he
held at the time of bis death.
In all the positions he has evr-r
filled he has been fuilhfnl to his
trust, "a prince am mg his lull iws,"
upright, generous, brave, ami true.
Few men have ever lived who so
fully held the friendship and es
teem of all classes of society. His
character was one of the great beau
ty, he was never known 10 seek his
own. He died with the benediction
of all who hid known him resting
upon him. Mr. Whipple leaves a
wife, and sister, Mis. S. L. Hill,
both of whom were with him when
he died; a brother, the Uishop of
Minnesota, who is now in Km ope,
and an adopted daughter, Miss
Eva, who all unconscious of Iter
great loss, sailed from Germany for
Mr. W. J. Forsyth embaiked on
the Eureka to-day, for San Fran
cisco. The gentleman came here in
May, 1887, and has therefore been
about 10 months in the country.
Three or four months after bis ar
rival ho was employed by the Ha
waiian Government, for the purpose
of making an inspection of the prin
cipal" islands of the group and re
porting on their probable adapta
bility or otherwise for the cultiva
tion of cinchona and colfee. The
islands of Hawaii, Maui and Kauai
were visited, and-pretty thoroughly
travelled over, soil examined, etc.
The result has been made manifest
in a lengthy and exhaustive report,
the pith of which is, embodied tu the
Minister of Interior's report to the
Legislature of 1888, and will prove
of value to any who may be disposed
to undertake cinchona and coffee
culture in these islands.
During Mr. Forsj'th's stay in this
country he has made many lricuds,
both iu Honolulu ami 011 the oilier
islands, who bid adieu with sincere
regret. They, including the Bui.
li:tik, will be exceedingly pleased
to hear of his success wherever he
may cust bis lot. Aloha Nui.

which have never before been seen
in this country. It would simply be
impissbu to desc i'lc everything
seen, inn particular mention must
be made of the white French China
ware, in breakfast, dinner and tea
sets. If a plate or cup of a set gets
broken you can always renew it as
the company will keep a full supply
on hand. Supposing you want to
fnncy yourself in Boston enjoying
a bean feast, jou can here find
earthen bean pots for which theie
appears to be a great demand.
There is also Cameo ware in scent
bottles, linger bov Is aud fairy lights,
which ware is very rare.
Ouiir leaders should not fail to
visit the store aud inspect this
beautiful stock for we are unable to
mention everything seen. Leaving
the main show loom the heavier
stock was examined aud everything
found iu tho neatest order. Over
the back entrance to the store is a
wire woven roof which should not
fail to be examined. Sepl. 13.
