ATTORNEY GENERAL TO TAKE'MATTER UP
W. It. Sims has filed his report as
master In.the matter bf Maraklall Ka-
opulupulu Walaaulanl, a minor, where
in he shows the administration ot mo
guardian, T.' B. Kalama, of the minor's
affairs, to bavo been greatly to tho
disadvantage of his ward. The matter
was up before Judge Lindsay some
lime ago, and at that time the Court,
expressing Itself In strong terms on
the subject of Kalama's dishonesty,
asked Sims to report on the matter.
Sims throws an entirely different
light on tho matter than that shown
by Kalama. Slma shows tbat tho sum
of $718.70 should be due tho estate,
while according to Kalama tbo estate
owed him $504.
The report prepared by the master
gives full details of the entire matter.
It shows that when Kalama waa ap
pointed aa guardian on July 0, 1900,
tho estate consisted of two pieces of
land In Koolaupoko, one undivided
share In tho abupuaa of Walkane, and
$573.45 cash deposit In the Hawaiian
Postal Savings Dunk. Kalama fur
nished a $1,000 bond with T. F. Lan
sing as surety.
On Dec. 27, 1905, Kalama filed a pe
tition for kavo to acll the two pieces
of land. He showed tho necessity of
soiling them In order to pay for tho
maintenance of tho minor and to pay
tho minor's debts. It was this matter
which started the troubles for Kalama.

On Jan, 30, Kalama filed bla first
sworn financial account of his stew
ardship. In which ho charged himself
with 1 1C0 rocelpls for rents for 1905
and 190C, and with disbursements la
tho sum of $604. Among the disburse
ments the principal- Items are a $50
fee to T, McCanta Stewart for legal
aervlces, and a charge of $520 for
board and lodging of the ward from
July 0, 1900, to Dec. 6, 1906, at $8 a
month. These accounts thus left a
balance of $504 duo to the guardian.
Slma states further that on Investi
gation he found that tho guardian had
failed to account for the receipt ot
renta from 1900 and several years af
ter, amounting to $350, and for the de
posit In tho Hawaiian Postal Savings
Dank, which, with Interest, amounted
to $584.70, and which was withdrawn
from the bank by Kalama five days af
ter hla appointment as guardian. This
shows omission of total accounting of
receipts In the sum of $934.70.
The master finds the Items In tho
guardian's expense accounts correct
with the exception of the $520 charge
I for board and lodging. He ahows that
this charge Is excessive for two rea
sons: First, because the ward was an
inmate of the Reform School for sev
en months. In splto of which she hai
been charged for board and lodging for
theso months; and, secondly, because
