About two or tlireo or four days after
tho duo dato of this note.
Q. What negotiations did you Imvo
In referenco to the borrowing of this
1100. A. Well about tho end of April
laBt I asked Townsend, n police olllccr
Jn tho Special and Detective Service,
If ho knew where I could Bet tho loan
of n $100; that 1 had this amount to
pay and that I would consider It a
personal favor If ho could help mo
raise the money. Townsend Bald ho
did not know, but that ho would try
mid get tho money from some of his
friends, this was late In the afternoon
after ofllco hours. Tho next morn
ing Townsend enmo to mo and said
that ho had succeeded In getting tho
money and will bring It in a little,
later. When ho brought tho money
to my olllco I asked him who I was
to mako tho noto payable to, bo said
n friend of his, T. (sol. I asked him
about tho Interest, ho said his friend
did not want any, that it was tho
money wns given to him as a personal
accommodation. I then took out my
noto book, filled out tho noto as re
quested, signed It und gavo it to him.
When tho noto became duo I asked
Townsend to bring It to mo so that I
could pay It, and when ho did bring
tho noto I didn't hao tho money.
Somo rent that I expected in that dny
and which tho tenant, my tenant,
promised to bring In, didn't come, so
1 said to Townsend, If Isol, thu holder
of tho nolo, would object to my giv
ing him, Issuing a now noto to Town
send, who had negotiated tho loan
for mo, and I would sco Hint it wns
paid as toon as I got tin money,
which I expected In uuy moment.
Tho man did not bring thu money In
for thrco or four ilayM afterwards
$100 $123. I then told Townsend to
bring mo tho substituted note. I paid
him tho $100 and then destroyed tho
substituted note. Tho original noto
was In my desk at tho time.
Q. How wns that substituted noto
mailo out, do you remember? A. Tho
substituted note? it was mado out
payable to Townsend for tho sanio
amount n demand noto. On demand
I promlso to pay I wroto It out my
self. Q. And that noto was endorsed by
Towiibcnd over to Isol? A. I think
Q Had Isol been pressing ou for
payment of tho $100 noto? A. No,
Q. , Or had ho lcquchted you or
mado any domain! on you nt all for
payment? A. No. sir.
Q. What wns your idea in taking
up tho original noto and substituting
tho noto to Townsend? A. Becauso
I did not want my note to get luck in
tho sanio hands. I wanted to tako It
First Learned of Isol,
Q. For what reason? A. Ilccauso
I found out after I had given thu first
noto, that the Isol mentioned In that
nolo wns tho same Isol of Iwilci.
Q. When did you first find that out,
do you remember? A. About with
in a week I think aftor I gavo tho
Q. From what source? A. I found
out from Mr. Tnwnsond, Isol, n mill
by tho namo of Isol, this samo Isol
of Iwllol, camo to my ofllco ono dny
aftor I hnd given tho noto, thrco or
four days nfter, to nsk mo It I hail
changed my attltuda as to tho closing
of Iwllcl; that ho had heard rumors
to that effect: that I would consent
to open Iwllol during tho tlmo thnl
tho flcot was going to bo In Honolulu.
I told Isol through Townsend. tho oflV
clal Interpreter, that tho rumors that
ho had heard wore not true, that t
did not propose to hao Iwllol opened
up again as long as I wns In ofllce;
that If tho women prostitutes went
b.irl: thorn to do Inmlnocn when tho
fleet va3 here, they would do so nt
their own peril and risk of arrest and
prosecution; that not only would I
arrest the women, but I would also
arrest tho lessees of tho premises
whero tho women had been doing
business, and also tho agents and
owners of these premises. When Isol
left my olllco I asked Townsend If
this was tho Isol to whom I havo filv-cn-my
noto of $100, Townsend snld
yes. I then realized tho mistake that
1 had mado and upbraided tho olllccr
for putting mo in this fnlso position.
Townsend replied that I need havo
no fears about the matter getting out,
that this man Isol could bo fully
trusted with privnto matters of this
nature, and that no favors would bo
expected of me. It wns too lato then
for mo to return the money, I had al
ready paid out tho $100 and I did not
know whero to get n similar amount
to tnko up my note.
Q. How long havo you known Isol?
A. Up to that tlmo I had only seen
Isol onco or twice In tho day nnd may
bo two or thrco times at night when
I went to Iwllel, that was about tho
only times that I saw this man Isol,
that la about thrco or four times al
together, flvo times may bo.
Q. And when was tho first time
Hint you snw him? A. Tho first
time I snw him, so that I could know
the man, wns when I went down wllh
Mr. Taylor and Mr. Townsend to
notify tho women nil the women nt
Iwllcl to close up their place, their
rooms of prostitution.
Q. Do you recollect that dnto? A.
It was I think thnl was about tho mid
dle of March when wo decided to
close Iwilci nt tho request of the Mln
Istcral Union, snmetimo beforo Tay
lor went away, may bo n week or so
before ho went away.
Q. At that time lou beenmo ac
quainted with Isol personally? A.
That Is I talked to him, I think it was
the first tlmo I talked with him to tell
him Hint wo had gono down to closo
0. Who, If nny one, Introduced
IboI to you on thnt occasion? A. I
think Mr. Taylor pointed him out, or
Mr. Townsend, I don t know. Ho
wns sitting In tho store whero ho
generally stays. Wo went up to tho
storo to tell him to close Iwilci up.
q. Ho was pointed out to you as
Isol then? A. Yes. I think bo at
Q. You know, did you not, nt that
tlmo thnt Isol was tho samo notorious
Isol In the Iwilci district? A. Yes.
Knowledge of Isol.
Q. As n matter of fnct, since you
took ofllco In January, 1907, nnd linvo
exercised I'ollco supervision over
Iwllel, you knew that Isol had nn
Interest In Iwllcl ns a lessee? A.
0. And wns leasing a largo number
of rooms to prostitutes nt Iwllel? A.
Q. I will ask you Sheriff If you
know of any other iierson In Honolulu
by tho namo of Isol? A. I don't
know them, but thcro nro other Isols,
plenty of them, there names ran be
found In tho Directory. There nro
several Isots in town. IboI Is n com
mon namo nmongut tho Japanese.
Q. You nro sure that It is n com
mon namo then? A. So I havo been
(1. When did you get Hint Infnnna.
Hon? A. Later. I was under tho
Impression nt the tlmo Hint might
havo been some other Isol.
(. Somo mention has been mado
hcio Sheriff about a loan made to you
by Mr. Colbiirn? A, Yes.
Q. Was It n fact that Mr. Colburn
wns iircbsltiK you for tho re-payment
of that loan that necessitated your
securing tlio $mo, which you did
securo on tho Isol note, do yon recol
lect? A. No, I did not get tho money
that I wanted at tho tlmo, at tho cud
of April or tho first of May, It was not
to pay tho Colburu noto; that I had
already paid some days before, may
bo a week or two, I don't remember.
Q Did you pay tho Colburn noto
by Installments or ono lump sum? 'A.
Q. Did you personally pay tho
money over to Colburn or wns It paid
thioiigh somo third person? A. I
paid it to a boy, I think ho sent his
boy over with n nolo asking mo to
return him tho money Hint ho had ad
vanced mo on n noto that I had given
Colburn for $150 I think it wns.
Q. I will ask you whethor you
mado nny payments on that coiimrn
nolo through Mr. Charles Chilling-
worth? A. Chllllngworth I think
paid Colburn himself on thnt unto.
Chllllngworth was owing mo $180 at
tho tlmo for which I wns holding
Chllllngwnrth'B noto, nnd I wont over
and naked Colburn If ho could not
lend mo SIHO nnd Hint I would give
him as sectuity n note thnt Chnrllo
Chllllngworth was nulng mo of a
$180 odd dollars, promising to pay Col
burn in, about u month or so, Chlll
lngworth paid Colburn, If I recollect
rightly, $2! on his noto at ono time,
I think ho paid that over to Colbuin
himself, In tho mcantlmo Colburn's
notu was over duo and ho sent his
boy to my omco with a letter, request
ing nw to tnko up tho nolo returning
Chillltigworth's noto at tho snmo tlmo.
I don't know whether I paid tho $100
that was duo to Colbuin to tho boy
or not, but I paid It nny way somo
few days nfterwnrdB, yes to tho snmo
boy tho $100.
Q. Whon Townsend brought bncls
In you tho original Isol noto had tho
Mibsllluted noto already been execut
ed? A Nn sir, I made nut thn sub
stituted uoto lieu ho handed mo the
original, that is my recollection.
(J. When he brought tho original
$100 noto to you, what if nnytlilng
did ho say to you? A. I don't re
member his making any statement
about it, I said 1 was expecting tho
money ns I stated before.
Q. Then ho secured tho nolo from
Isol nnd turned It over to you beforo
you hnd executed tho substituted
note? A, I suppose so, I don t know
Hint was my recollection.
Q. And when ho delivered tho ori
ginal Isol noto to you, did he say any
thing nbout Its being alright or any
thing of Hie kind, do you recollect?
A. May be.
Q. Now Is thcro nnytlilng clso you
deslro to say Sheriff in referenco to
your noto ou havo there or nnytlilng
clso? A. No, thcro Is nothing more
thnt I ran say perhaps t have no re
collection, I nm not very positive
nbout the tlmo that I gavo the sub
stituted note, whether It wns given
when Townsend took this noto up or
whether 1 gavo It to Townsend when
ho brought this nolo on the duo dnle.
Presents of Chairs.
Q. About Christmas, 1907, did Jou
recclvo nny present or presents of
nny kind from Isol? A. Yen. I re
ceived n present of chairs. I went
homo ono dny about Christmas time
or tho dny before, my wife met me
en the vernndah and expressed gicat
pleasure of receiving theso kun chairs
small upright chairs such ns may
be used fur dining table, and said Hint
romo ono had brought It out In n
".vngon accompanied by Townsend. I
did not sco them, I camo home In thu
nttcrnoon niter olllco hours, they had
gone It wns sometime during tho
dny. Sometime nfterwnrds I asked
Townsend who sent the chairs, 1
think ho snld Isol.
CJ. At tho time tho chnlrs weio
delivered, is It not n fact that u cnid
or slip of paper was left with thu
chairs with Isol's namo on it? A.
May bo, I didn't sco It.
(J. You did not sco nny biicIi card?
A. No, all I remember my wlfo say
ing thnt an olllccr camo up with tho
chairs, there wcro two of them I think
q. Hut within n few days after
wards Townsend did tell you that tho
chairs enmo from Isol, did ho not?
A, Sometimes nfter, ubout two or
three weeks nfterwnrds.
q. Now I wish you would tell ns
lully ns j on can Sheriff tho Incident
of tho attempted bribery on thu purl
of Isol, commencing with tho II. M
negotiations. A. Define 1 relate thu
ilrcuniHtnnccs connected with tho at
tempted bribery nt my house, I would
like to say to tho Committee, of thu
accepting of presents by officials on
occasions of that kind like Christmas
nnd New Years, It Is n frequent nc
currenco and 1 havo done It n hun
dred times for tho last 2.1 years that
I havo been In public life, so It Is
nothing now to accept a picscnl on
Christmas, New Years, holidays or
Chinese New Yenrs by Government
Oinclnls. They nil do- It I think.
Along nbout tho middle or latter
part of May, Isol accompanied by QUI
cer Townsend camo to my house on
Hnsscngcr Street Just beforo dinner
time G:30 P. M. Wo sat on tho
front lwrch overlooking Hnsscngcr
Street whero any ono passing along
could easily recognize nny of us. I
inquired ns to tho purpose of their
visit, when Townsend spoko up nnd
snld that ho wns only there to Inter
pret for Isol, but ho had declined to
do so nn tlireo separate occasions
when Isol went to him nt his house
to nsk him to accompany Isol. I iinw
no harm In an officer and official inter
preter acting In thnt capacity and sn
told the olllccr to go ahead and Inter
pret for Isol. I hoon found out tho
purposo of their visit, which wns
that If I permitted the Isol place nt
Iwllcl to open iiii for business when
the fleet wns here, ho would glvo me
n gift or $u00. I told Isol that It wns
useless to talk tu mo with nny propo
sition of that nature, that t would not
entertain It for u moment, Hint nny
attempt to ic-npcn prostitution at lwi
lei would bo followed by nrrest und
prosecution. 'After telling ma nil
nhiuit their plans of police officers
making cortuin arrests and .1110 pay
ing of flues so ns to hooding tho pub
licfool tho public they left tho
house nfter I had made it plain to
them not to como again with nny
propositions of that nature. No
monoy wns In sight I saw no monoy.
Isol spoko In Jnpaucso altogether, I
could not understand what lie said
except whnt Townsend Interpreted.
Some few nights lifter thftt they camo
again, this tlmo with a $1000 propo
q. At the house? A. At tho
About 8 o clock. Not expecting the
second visit, I wns unprcpaicd with
any plans lo nrrest Isol as I had made
up my mind to do so when Ihoy camo
a second time. They showed no
money nnd I had no ovldcnco against
them. Officer Townbend. I dnro not
trust nfter this socond visit. To ob
tain or glvo mo ovldenco of tho nt-
tempted bribery, I then conceived the
idea of throwing them off a cent by
asking them to bring $1,100 to my
house, thinking Hint this request on
my part would bo taken enrncstly,
and thereby securo tho evidence that
I wanttd. They went away, I novor
saw anything of tho monoy or Isol.
When I Inquired of Townsend n day
or bo later at tho olllco why they did
not bring the money, TowiiboiuI wild
ho did not know, that something must
have gono wrong. It was nt this tlmo
that Townsend camo Into my olllco
und Bald that Taylor Is very angiy
with him becauso ho had lied to him
about the note. I said tn Townsend,
why did you not tell Taylor nil nbout
It. Townsend replied that he conald
ered it duo to me, that he did not
speak of It of the transaction to
nny one, but me; that ho thought the
matter was n personal nud pilvato
ono nnd no ones business to know.
I I hereupon called Mr. Taylor to my
olllco and In tho presence of Town
bend liifoimed Tn)lor of whnt Town
send hnd jint snld. Taylor madi
somo roply. nbout Townsend uol
lying to him, nnd then nnd thcic It
told Tnjlor tho wliolo transaction
nbout the nolo nnd how it came about,
ro that is nit 1 can say In reference
q. That statement Sheriff that yon
havo been rending from or refreshing
your recollection from, when was Hint
prepared? A. This wns prcpaiod f
prepared nnd mado notes so as to
help mo when tho (hand Jury was In
session the other dav. 1 made nbout
tho snmo statement to tho Oram! Jury
as I am making here.
q. And tho statement wns made
prior to the tlmo that you went to the
Ornnd Jury? A. Yes. This Is not
the same, but In n general way.
q. Did you Inform Mr Tnjlor Hint
you hnd mado up ynnr mind to nt.
tempt to cntch Isol In connection with
tho attempted brlbeij? A." 1 told
him Borne two or three days nfter
wnrds, I told him about tho aiteinpted
bribery at my house. 1 told him tho
q A day or two after what? A.
After (his talk with Townsend. I
don't know whether I referred to that
bribery attempt, or it may have been
ufteiwards, It was nbout that time.
q. You menu Hint nfter ou hud
this conversntlon with Taylor nbonl
the Isol note. It wns three or four
days after that you Bay? A. I think
f-o, I don't recollect whether I told
him that day, or some few days after
that, I can't remember the exact date.
