OF QUEEN HAS
Attorneys Hold Series of Con
ferences: Name of 'Princess
Theresa Comes Into Rumors
Cohcernina Manner in Which
'Document Was Conveyed: to
Lawyer: Crown Jewels Now
Held in Trust Company's
Two new developments came this
afternoon in the pending litigation
over Queen LUIuokalanl's estate.
The first was an announcement by
an attorney for Prince Kuhlo ; that
the delegate would undoubtedly con
test the purported will or .'Augusts.
1917. "We claim that tne queen , naa
been Incapacitated for th last nine
years? said the attorney. ; ;
The, second . was the expression of
a norvludicial oninlon by Circuit Judge
William H. Heen that a bond of $30r
ftOft wauM he sufficient surety : to
cover the removal of certain crown
Jewels from the vaults of the Bishop
Trust Co., which are wanted at the
queen's funeral. It was announced
that arrangements ' for the removal
would Drobablv be completed this af
ternoon. It is expected that the bond
will be furnished by someone acting
for Colonel Curtis P. laukea, who has
oeneral charge of the funeral.
An attorney said this afternoon
that the crown jewels, while they are
real diamonds, are of a mediocre
' quality and" probably not worth more
man io,wu. .-, 3 ; , . .
Sensational in its suddenness,
A news . early - yesterday . that
i Queen Liliuokalani i had . ieit ; a
f .lithertonKnpxu 1 1 ttV Aas
v proved to be the most discussed
event following oh the death of
the - queen at 8:30 yesterday
morning Today events in con
nection with this document,
declared by some to be genuine
?nd by others scouted either as
f lse or else made when she did
not realize her actions, are hur
rying fast one upon the other.
Rumors that John F. Col
burn, former treasurer of the
Kapiolani estate,and 4 Princess '
Theresa AVilcox Belliveau
knew of ; the existence of the
will are denied in part and in
part said to be exaggerations.
Oua stofv is tnat tne
princess V was the agency
which secured the will piece
meal and took it to Attorney
Andrews for moulding into
rroner shape. Attorney, An
drews declined to say this
oxactlv how fiut
knowledge of the alleged in
tention of the queen, to make
the will came to him, and the
' ' princess, " while admitting
r- some knowledge of the affair,
Mould not say exactly what her
activities and functions have
been. ; , - a '
Here: are tne outstanding features
to date: .
The signed ; copy of te purported
last - will " of Queen v Liliuokalani
reached Attorney Lorrin Andrews
early in September, having been
signed on August 29.
Upon the death of the queen Sun
wav. Attorney Andrews, who had
drawn the will for Liliuokalani, im
mediately notified Col. Curtis 'P. lau
kea Trustee William O. Smith and
Delegate Kuhlo of its existence,
which had', hitherto been kept secret.
Attorney. Andrews also telephoned
to John F. Colburn, stating that the
will - designated him as c::ccutor of
the estate. Attorney William B. Ly.
mer on Sunday morning became ss-
oelated with Attorney Andrews as
One of counsel for Colburn.
Colburn's attorneys issue statement
that he made no attempt to take
complete charge of the queen's fune
ral, nor did he suggest this to Col-
onel laukea ana otners.
