CASHIER COOPER'S STATEMENT

following statement. ,
"XIr. Xlorgan was introduced to the
Anglo-California Bank, at San Fran-,
Cisco by AV. J. Cooper, cashier of the '
Fjrst National Bank of "Hawaii, in
the same manner as many other gen
tlemen of this city have been, but
without any idea that Mr. Xlorgan
had any desire to become the presi
dent of the First National Bank, Had
I been acquainted vith the ambition

been reluctant to extend to him, un-
der any. circumstances, an introduc-

Colonel Macfar ane's Bombshell.
"There can be no question that Mr. (
Cecil Brown has not given his whole.

quesUon that the success of the busi-
ness of the First National Bank is ,
solely attributable to XIr. Brown. i
"In regard to XIr. XIacfarlane's (
bombshell I feel that we have ex
ploded it. That is all I care to saj."
Mr Cnnnpr linwpver. added that '
tha bank had been a great success. '
n.trin t first civ months of its ex-
istence the bank paid a dividend of

Deceased Testify-Fit Between the Brothers.
An inquest was held last night in
me unite ui iue uuiuuer, at me ps-
lice station, on the body of Joseph
Rosa who died under peculiar condt-
tions on Jlonday morning at his home
on Punchbowl street, near Kinau.
As previously reported. Dr. Alva-
rez attended the deceased just be-
fore death and diagnosed the case as
one of alcoholism, giving a death
certificate to that effect on the fol-
lowing day. The remains were ,
interred in the Catholic cemetery on
Xlonday afternoon. The police re-
ceived a hint that something was
wrong and caused the body to be ex-
humed. An autopsy was held at the
morgue, Dr. McDonald making the
examination. This occurred on Xlon-
.!.. ri-i i , ,

impanelled and the body was view-
Verdict of Coroner's Jury. .
The coroner's jury met at 7 o'clock
last night and examined Joe XIcKin-
noa. now night clerk at the police '
station; Dr. Shorey. government food
inspector and chemist; Dr. J. T. XIc
Donald, the physician who performed
the autopsy; Dr. Alvarez, the attend
ing physician and the doctor who
gave the death certificate; Willie
Keawe, the Hawaiian who visited the
.Rosa house on Sunday and who is
said to have given the first intimation
that something was wrong, by notify
ing Deputy Sheriff Albert McGurn;
Louis Richard Rosa, the thirteen-year
old son of the dead man; and XIrs.
Joseph Rosa, the wife of deceased.
It was almost 11 o'clock when the
jury returned the following verdict:
"That the said Joe Rosa came to
his death in Honolulu, Island of Oahu,
on the 13th day of January, A. D.
1902, as the result of an injury to
the skull "causing the formation of a
blood-clot and consequent pressure j
on tne brain; said injury, so this
jury believes, being the result of a
blow from some sharp pointed in
strument in "the hands of a person
to this jury unknown.

"G. B. CURTIS,
"WILLIAM C. SCHNEIDER,
"HERBERT M. AYRES,
"W. F. SABIN,
"WILLIAM D. WILDER."
Charged With Murder.
High Sheriff Brown now holds
George Rosa, the brother of the dead
man, on a charge of murder In the
first degree. He will probably be
held for the next grand jury.
XIrs. Joseph Rosa, who had been
held as a witness in the matter, was head as long after the injury was re
last night allowed !to return to her ceived as Joseph Rosa was supposed
home and children. She will, of ! to have lived, thero beinc some un
course, be summoned as a witness
when the case comes to trial.
The testimony given by the various I
witnesses last night contained noth
ing definite which would go to show
who administered the blow which
caused the death ot Joseph Rosa.
While circumstantial evidence indi
cated that the brother, George Rosa,
had a great deal to do with the fatal
wound in the head of the deceased,
there was no evidence which war
ranted the jury finding that the weap i
on which caused death was held in I
the hands of the brother. George
Rosa Is held by the police, however,
as a suspect and will have to ac-
count for h!s actions just prior to the j
death of Josepa Rosa. .
Had Previous Trouble.
The first witness called was Joe
troublcs, having at one time witness-
ed some demonstration of enmity be-;
tween the brothers Joseph, the ds
ceased, and George.
Dr. Shorey, food commissioner, was
the next to he examined. He had
received the stomach of the deceased
to examine. He said that he had fail
ed to find any indication of the pres
ence of alcohol in the stomach, al-i
though he did not wkh this fact to
imply, nscessarfly, that the man had
not been drinking heavily prior.-to

Blood Spots on Compass.
Dr.'shorey said that he had also'
received, from the police, a pair of
ordinary metal compasses, old and ,
rusty, for examination as to whether
or not there were any traces of blood

Dr. XIcDonald, the autopsy physl -

minutely every wound which had

Lingering Life Explained.
When asked If it was not unusual
for a man to live with a hole in his
certainty as to the exact time the
wound was inflicted. Dr. XIcDonald
replied that the case was not an ex-
traordinary one and that there was
nothing very unusual in the fact that
Rosa lived many hours after the time
when the hole In the head 13 sup
posed to have been made. Rosa died
some time before 9:30 o'clock on
Xlonday morning snd It is supposed
that the injury to the head was in
