twenty-four hours. Somu of these nl.
legations are part of tho case as It
has been worked up by the pollie,
while the rest are now being sub
Jicted to investigation.
Ilcport has It that some time after
the fire liooth sent for David Manuel,
tho special officer who says he was
with Kuuumotuiu when tho lire was
started, to discuss with bin', some
business which was, however, 'In no
wuy connected with the lire. During
the conversation liooth made refer
ence to another matter, which .Man
uel hud thought was a secret known
only to Kaaiimoana and himself. Man
uel arrived at the conclusion thut
Kuuiimnunii hud told liooth about
this matter, and told liooth that It
Kaaiimoana wits so free with his
tongue ho would be quite likely to
tell also about tho origin of thu lire,
about which ho (Manuel) know ev

Insurance on the house, u sum of
money was sent to Kiiuuiuniimi by a
coachman, who Is Kuniimoann'M bio

rumonnn should divide the money as'
he saw lit between himself and "the

Years rolled on, when, nccordlng
to the Information of the prosecution,
Manuel wanted to marry, and as ouo
of his preparations for this event he
went to confession. In the confes-
slonal Manuel told all about the
1 loo lb lire and his own connection
with it, mid us n consequence, he was
told that he could not receive abso
lution until he had done what ha
could to right the wrong which he
had been a party to Inflicting. Man

ma, knowing that his own uncorrob
