Of Deal To Protect
Business At Iwilei
The appearance of an article In the
Hawaii Slitnpo of lait Saturday In
which Isol, tho hvllel landlord, who
bcrnmo fninous In tonnection with
tho laukoa-noto matter, la quoted na
stating that he huifheon engaged In
negotiations with the Sheriff for the
purpose of getting pollco protection
for the red-light district In considera
tion of u certain Hum of money, has
again placed the pollco department
In n or unpleasant light.
Isnl was this morning asked for the
correct erslon of tho matter, and he
"It Is n fact that 1 upproichcd lau
kea and asked him to allow me to re
open Iwllol," said Irol "At thnt
time I offeieJ him 5500; hut laukea
wanted 1110:0. I ca.no out with an
other S500, making the (.mount $1,
000. laukea did rot want to take
this, and suggested that 11500 would
be satisfactory to him. I consldeied
then that 11500 was too large an
amount for mo to raise, and so I told
him that I would hao to consult
with others- vhn woio lntctested In
tho business. During my con crea
tion with laukea, Townsend acted us
Interpreter." . .
"One night at about 12 o'clock,
Townscnd camu down to my house at
IwlleL,uod awoke ioo. when I got, up
I thought ho had rome to report that
everything had been fixed to my sat
isfaction. To my surprise, however,
Townsend said that Chief of Detect
ives Tayloi had discovered tho 1100
note of laukea. I discussed the mat
ter with Townsend.
"Tho matter of reopening Iwllol
v.-ns first proposed to Sheriff InukcH
before the money was over loaded to
htm. All this tlmo my proposition
was conveyed to laukea through
Townsend as Interpreter, I asked
'lownsend to Interpret for me because
I do not speak English. Whatever
conversation passed between us wna
Interpreted by Townsend.
"Ilpsumlng tho matter of the $1,
500, laukea said that If I paid that
amount he would give me pollco pro
tection. The stockade nt Iwilei
would he opened and business ie-
sumed. In all my dealings with lau
kea I novor carried money In any
largo amount with me, but I was
ready to dig np when asked."
Sheriff laukea takes the position
that he continued the negotiations
merely for the purpose of trapping
Isol, his Idea being to arrest him as
soon ns ho had sufficient evidence
against him. This morning the Sher
iff wrote the following statement for
"The published Interview of tho
Hawaiian Shlnpo with Isol which tho
Advertiser gave out this morning is

rr.rmey for tho reopening of Iwilei Is
concerned. Hut as to ngicelng to ac
cept 11 5110 foi selfish motives, the
pioposltlon Is so absurd that I need
rot waste nny words In refuting It.
Docs an j one suppose that 1 would uc
cept n bribe and for a paltry sum aa
this discredit myBolf and tho offlco
entrusted to my charge?
"My veislon of It as given In the
Advortlser Is correct, and tho only
mottvo I had in suggesting the 11500
wi!3 thnt It would lead to the arrest
of the briber and the enrichment of
I the public coffers by that sum. I was
I using the officer (unbeknown to him
perhaps) to accomplish the end I had

"The wholo thing looks to me as a
ucliemc to discredit my. administra
tion, and lu thnt way icgaln control
of tho police depnitment, so that
open vlco and gambling may go on
ns before. Unprincipled attorneys
and politicians, I think, are at the
bottom of this movement.
'This Isol attempt at bribery Is
only one of many Instances where

The Sheriff was asked if ho In
tended to bring charges of attempted
bribery against Isol, as It would seem
as If his own evidence, coupled with
the statements mndo by Isol to the
Japanese press, would furnish a suf
ficient basis for prosecution. This
was the view taken by Assistant
County Attorney Drown, but laukea
stated that ho would havn to consult
