'The Governor then aaked me how

ndvlsed mo to come back as quickly
as I could. I was bnqk. In Honolulu
within thirty days, nnd went at once
to the Governor's office.

'The.Oovernor replied that he had

I waited for two months nnd then
went again to the Governor's office
and asked lilm for- somo definite re
ply bo I could go back to Lay tan anu;
be responsible for the work that was
being done. I told him thnt I must
know definitely, and he then said:
" 'If you must go, you wHl havo
to go on your own responsibility,'
"I Bald that I would jipt go on ray
own responsibility, because I had
been depending on his word to get
Information from Washington and
let me know definitely what the
exact status of the Island was. Hut.
I could not get a definite reply.
"About that time I read a report
In a newspdper that a United Stutes
transport had passed n Japanese
schooner, near Illrd Island and , It
was believed to have been a poach-.
er. This made "me anxious, because
I believed that Japanese were poach

tried to find out where I stood,
through the Governor, but could npt
get any. satisfaction,
"Then I wrote to tho Governor,
referring to tils threat, (hat my lease
would hnve to be canceled, nnd
ngain .asking him what my Btatua
was 'as the lessor of Laysan Island.

the matter 'was tnimnterlal to the
