how he became involved in the matter
of the will. ' . '
j Princess' . Theresa cme to me
aeveral times about it," he said, hhe
spoke to me the first time in the rec
ords' office and told me what Vie want

That 'was in the early part of last

'Then I saw Tier again and the next
time I Went to her house on the Gore

When he was asked what reward bed

done, Kealoha could give only an in
definite reply. It was brought out,
however, that ha bad been promised a
reward, althongb It nature end the
amount was not definitely stated. The

Keith'er ' Princess Theresa nor ber

was suggested thst princeM- 1-,,,
sa be railed to testify, but the eouit
had held that sufficient evidence bad
bde presented upon which to act.
Judge Ashfonl said from all the" W
denoe that had been presented, aa well
as from matters within bis own knowl
edge, the document that bad been of
fered, as the 1017 Will could not be re
garded aa "anything but a forgery. r ,
The court order undor which the 1917
will Is eliminated' from the case, 6
tar as i-probate la concerned, was thCa
entered.; ' ., .( ..
, Wben Kealoha canie to Court yester

counter trouble, for he bad engaged in

Outcome of Hearing - -
As an outcome of yesterdavfa bear
fng nd tbe elimination 6f the 1917
will, the Vwhole case now falls into
two (lirisioilM,-. one of 'wbleb it is ix
peered Will engnge tbe attention of the
grand jury and the criminal division
of the circuit Court. This will be tho
alleged1 conspiracy developed. Judge
Ashford stated" that tbe disclosures of
consjrfracy in the evidence imposed no
particular cbttrve - of action be b's

MThat will undoubtedly b'o taken up
by 1 he grand Jury," he said, . '
With the 117 wiM eliminated, tlie
fight for possession bf the estate nar-J
rows dqwn to a contest 'between the
proponents of the "old will", the
