which had been Ksked for. There had
been a waste of the public funds and
nothing had been accomplished.
It was at this point that the Gover
nor, speaking In the Hawaiian tongue
stated that he knew briber) had been
carried on during the present session
members of the Legislature had ac
cepted money to do certain things dur
ing the session.
All the while the natives of the com
mlttre were listening ver.v carefully
nnd, when Mr. Dole had finished this
charge. Mr. Ilojd said
"Governor, this Is n most serious
charge oti make and It Is one that
every man of honor nninng us wants
to so proved. You sny jou know that
bribery has been carried on Now then,
we arc very anxious to know and we
wnnt the names of the men who have
been bribed and the circumstances of

that punishment may Immediately be
meted out to the guilty ones."
The Governor did a little clearing of
the throat, glanced around the room,
said that such n thing was very hard to
prove nnd then branched off Into nil-
other matter that was about av far
from, bribery ns he could conveniently
manage at the time.
I After the meeting with tho Governor,
the natives (lied out of tho room. One

matter later on, said-
"From the remarks of the tlovernor.
I do not believe that .in extension of
