has occupied honorable positions under tho Into Hawaiian .Mon
archy, was arrested on tbo 10th day of January, A. D. 1895,
and charged before a Military Commission with tho crinio of
Wheueas, it. further appears that owing to iuadvertenco aud
a non-comprehension of tlio gravity of tbo plea, ho plead guilty
to tho said charge of Treason; und
Wheueas, tho seven judges presiding at tbo Military Com
mission before which 1m was charged, although recognizing tho
fact that be was not guilty of tbo crinio of Treason, were pow
erless under tlm law to do other than impose a sentence of "five
years bard lulwr and a monetary fino of Five Thousand Dol
, Wheueas, tho reviewing authorities, acting ou tho recom
mendation of tho said Military Commission, did mitigato and
modify the said sentence by striking out tho "five years hard
lalwir," but retaining the said monetary lino of Five Thousand
Dollars, which sum tho said John A. Cummins was compelled
to borrow at a high rate of interest in order to pay tho said
finu aud thereby obtaiu his liberty; and, therefore,
lie it Enacted by the Lctjhhiturc of tlm Territory of Hawaii:
.Section 1. Tbo sum of Fivo Thousand Dollars($r.,000.00)
is hereby appropriated to lie paid out of any moneys in tho
