Magoon for Stewart as his attorney.

Collection of Data.
Immediately following my engage
ment In April, to go as jour repre
sentative to Washington, I collected
such data then available, as I thought
would be required, from the Flro
Claims Commission, also letters of In
troduction from many leading mer
chants and citizens to their friends In
.Congress nnd business nnmalntance
'elsewhere upon the Mainland: and n
number of uhcitocrnnhs taken at the
time of the burning of different proper-
,e,, one being u panoramic view of tho

llrothcr Ilertram of St. Louis College,
and kindly furnished me by llrothcr
Kdwnrd. and which served a most ex-
cellent purpose In explaining the man
ner In which the fire spread over all
tho quarantined district.
Departure for Washington.
On April 9th. I took passage on thai
steamer Alameda, arriving at San
Francisco on the 14th. whereupon I Im
mediately sent telegrams to the Hon.
Robert Wilcox, Delegate in Congress,
Informing him of the nature of my
business and that I was on my way to
Washington as the bearer of Joint reso
lutions of the Chnmber of Commerce
and the Merchants' Association, to se
curo aid from Congress for the Terri
tory In paying bubonic plague flrn
claims losses, and that I desired to
confer with him In regard thereto.
I Telegrams were also Kent at the same
I "mo to Hon. S. II. Dole, Governor of
e Territory, then nt Washington.
stating the object nnd purpose of my
coming, nnd asking that In case h
would not be able to await upon my
arrival, to take the matter up with the
President and the chairmen of the
committees, giving to them His views
on the matter; also to tho Honorable
Senators C. I). Clark and V. E. Warren,
and to Congiessman Mondcll, with
whom I was personally well acquaint
ed, nnd who had expressed a willing
ness to assist Hawaii to secure aid
from Congress to satisfy the fire claim
losses, and whose services It was ex-
ncimim iii-Kiraiiie to secure owing to
mo lateness of the session nnd the In
capacity of the Delegate, whose health
had been, and at that time was In a
Eomewhat precarious condition.
San Francisco Assistance.
Shortly nftcr my nrrlval in San
Francisco, I presented a letter to ono
of thc leading business men, Mr. A. C
Ilulofson, of the firm of linker & Ham
ilton, statlug to him thc object of my
mlislon to Washington, and requesting
his asslstanio in securing the Influence
of business men In San FraneUrh nn
