Bribery Charges Based
More Than Hearsay
The report of the Grand Jury upon
bribery and corruption of members of
the Legislature, of which a synopsis
was printed In the Bulletin yesterday li
in full as follows:
The 13th and 14th of May were given
to the consideration of bills presented
to the Grand Jury by tho Attorney
General's department, nnd on the lGth
tho accusations of bribery nnd corrup
tion of tho members of tho Territorial
Legislature were taken up and examin
ed. It has been under continuous con-
slderatlon to tho present time. Every
person whom It was thought could
'h !.DI "l" "P." l?.?JU.biC.Ct..h.a'
utcn UC1UIC lil uiuiiu nui nuu va.u-.
fully Interrogated. Over one hundred
witnesses have been examined and the
testimony of many of them has been
very contradictory and unsatisfactory.
Every rumor was accepted ana iracea
without result ib to tho charges of brl
bry and corruption.
Among tho witnesses examined wero
tho Governor of the Territory, the At
torney General, the Secretary, the Su
perintendent of Public Works, tho
Treasurer.' the Acting Oovernor, tho
Superintendent of Public Instruction,
nnd the Commissioner of Public
Lands, all of whom were executive of
ficers of the Territory on tho 30th day
of April and attended the Governor at
councillors when requested.
Tho Governor testified that the In-
formation he had received was from
second or third hands; that at the
time his reply was given to the Senate
In wblch he stated that he had infor-
matlon from n source, which he could
not Ignore that bribery of members
nyas going on In the Legislature, he
hail no legal evidence of bribery or cor
ruption of members of the Legislature.
Attorney General Dole.
The Attorney General said that he
declined to present tho evidence In his
possession; thnt ho had no evldenco
In his possession that would convict
any member of bribery or corruption:
that to divulge at that time any of tho
evidence he had would close the, chief
sources of Information and defeat tho
ends of Justice. I am not sure that
nnythlng has been done to bring
charges of bribery and corruption homo
to members of the Legislature.
The Secretary's Attitude.
Tho Secretary Bald that he had no
evldenco of bribery ;that he had In
formation of contributions to a corrup
tion fund, that the fund was not raised
to defeat a bill, but that the fund was
raised to put a bill through the Legis
lature ;that he believed sufficient evi
dence could be obtained to warrant
the Attorney Oeneral in presenting a
bill to the Grand Jury; that he de
clined to give any information to the
Grand Jury, as a matter of privilege.
The Superintendent of Public
Works said that he hacf nothing but
hearsay on charges of bribery or cor
ruption ;that ho had, confidential re
lations with the heads of other de
partments of the government on mat
ters that he was not it liberty to di
vulge, and refused to do so.
The Treasurer said that he had read
In the newspapers that there had been
bribery and corruption of the members
of tho Legislature; that he attended
the Governor's council but could not
call to mind any discussion about such
bribery and corruption.
Orders to High Sheriff.
The High Sheriff also appeared be
fore tho Grand Jury nnd said that he
had heard the matter of bribery and
corruption discussed in a general wny
only ;that on the 17th and 18th day of
May ho was Instructed by the Attorney
General to secure any evidence he
ccnld as to these practices, but prior
to that he had no Instructions to se
cure such evidence; that at the time
he was before the Grand Jury he had
no evidence of bribery or corruption
of the members of the Legislature; the
Attorney General had not given him
any eyldence, nor had he laid out any
lines for htm (the High Sheriff) to act
upon ;that ho had made no investiga
tion, but was revolving In his mind
how to get at tho evidence.
Jacob Coerper's Position.
As it had been published In the
newspapers that Mr. Jacob Coerper,
upon approaching three members of
the House for their support of his bill
tor a franchise for a railway from
Kona to Kau, he was asked by the
members "what there was In the bill
for them," tho Grand Jury had obtain
ed the names of the three members,
but each and all of them denied hav
Ipg asked Mr. Coerper such a question.
Mr. Coerper having oIbo stated that
ho had paid nn offlcfr of the House,
not a member, a sum of money to se
cure his assistance for the bill, Mr.
Coerper was aBked -for the name, nnd
for what Beemed good reasons refused
to divulge the name of the officer. Tho
reasons given were "that the testimony
might be Incriminating might and
might not be."
Effort was made through other
sources to secure tho nnmo of tho offi
cer, but without success. Every bill
Introduced Into tho Legislature asking
tor a franchise watj Investigated
where any corporation, society, or as
sociation tins an Interest, but the Jury
failed to find any, eyldence of a corrup
Testimony was given that warranted
the belief that persons not memhors
had asked tor a commission for fur
nishing printing to the printing offices
and for discounts when they paid
The Dispensary Rill,
The testimony ns to assessments lev
vied to defeat this bill, tho witnesses
admitted that money was raised by
subscription from some of. tlie whole
sale and some of the retail, liquor deal
ers ;that the money subscribed to re
tain counsel and obtain legal opinions
upon the constitutionality of the bill,
and as to the meaning' and Intent' of
a clause lit Section t'i of the Organla
Act; also to obtain legal opinions from
San Francisco on tho constitutionality
of tho bill and Organic Act, and to se
cure Information of tho working of the
South Carolina dispensary' bill.
Tho $65,000 fund referred to by Dr
Russel was traced to its original sourct
.and found to hnvo no foundation.
Upon this subject the testimony was
, that members of the Home Rule party
. took lunches at Noltc's and at another
eating house on Alakea street;' that
me luncnes were paia ror uy uepresen-
tatives Prcndergast nnd Mossman, out
of a fund belonging to tho Homo Rule
party; thai the fund was raised before
the session to entertain country mem
bers; that subscribers were members
of the Home Ilule party or Its support'
ers. A member of the Legislature, a
Home Ruler) said he subscribed to tho
fund nnd ato the lunch ho had sub
Mllltnry Officer Club.
The testimony of tho officers of this
club was that In February last cards
granting the privileges of the club wcrn
Issued to members of the Legislature,
and to members of tho press. The
members of the Legislature who wero
before the Grand Jury admitted having
received cards, and the newspaper
representatives also. Some of tho
members had used the cards; others
had not. A member of the Legislature
who was on the Committee on Military
said that no card had been given to
him until the special session was call
ed to consider appropriations; that tho
desired appropriation for military pur
poses was about $35,000. The nrlvl
leges of the club were explained to be
the use of the club rooms, the, right
to purchase liquor by the bottle only
from the club supplies, nnd tho use of
a locker to keep a bottle In, and the
services of the servants of tho club.
That these privileges were openly
abused was made clear by the tcstl
mbny of several witnesses. As there
were not lockers enough for all, tha
persons enjoying the privileges of the
club, a general locker was provided.
In the charge of a Japanese servant, in
which bottles with labels of owners
names upon them were kept. Thera
was testimony that liquor was sold by
the glass, the charge being twenty
cents a glass, one witness saying that
he kept no bottle at the club, that he
called for drinks for himself and
friends and always paid for them as a
matter of course; that friends Inviten
him to drink and paid for the drinks,
Witnesses testified that representa
tives of tho press were not required ti
pay for liquor, drinks being free to
them and to other persons.
As members of the Legislature te3
titled that they had received annual
passes from Wllder's Steamship Com
pany, the manager of that company
was called and testified that such
passes had been Issued to members of
the Legislature, that It was customary
to do so by transportation companies
everywhere; that one member hud
asked for an explanation of the tender
of tho pass. The manager also stated
that his company had two contracts
with the government, which were pro
vided for In the appropriation bill, for
which 400 a month was received by
The vice president of another com
pany was called and stated that his
company did not Issue annual passes
(n nnvhndv. Thn fllrprrnrR nt rhn ,nm
pany only had passes; that passes
good for ono trip had been issued to
members of the Legislature when ask
ed tor, but It was not customary; that
but one pass had been Issued this ses
sion of the Legislature; that his com
pany had no contracts with the Terri
A. W. Pearson's Affidavit.
This was taken under consideration
and Mr. Pearson testified to the cor
rectness of the statements made by
him In bis Interview with Messrs. F.
J. Turk and O, Choa. Lewis, that the
charges made by him were the truth
and nothing but the truth. This affi
davit was printed In the Advertiser ol
May 27th, and a copy Is attached here
Messrs. Turk, and Lewis being called
and duly sworn, admitted that they
were In Mr. Pearson's office ns stated.
Mr, Turk Invited Mr. Lewis to accom
pany him there ;that they dlscus.vd
with Mr. Pearson the securing of the
position of harbor policeman for Mr.
Turk. Mr., Lewis stated that he had
done politics with M.r. Pearson ome
time ago. Both Turk and Lewis said
that tho statcm,ents In the affidavit
were generally untrue.
The Deputy Attorney General was
questioned relative to the affidavit
and stated that be did not know of unj
statuto under which Lewis could be
prosecuted, even It the statements con
tained In the affidavit could be proven;
that the charges made by Mr, Pearson
did not constitute an offenso under any
Territorial statute that ho was aware
