. to Handle. Homesteading
(Special from a Staff Correspondent)
HILO, Hawaii, Nov 16. Hawaii's land problems are loom
ing large before the eyes of the visiting congressmen and they
are realizing that these problems cannot be settled on-nana.
At a special meeting oi tue con
gressional delegation and Hilo busi
nessmen on Thursday, Congressman
Reavis 04 Nebraska deciared thath3
will introduce a joint resolution in
congress for a 'special committee to
snpnd six months on the islands in a
study of the land problems and other
difficult questions of administration.
He 'pointed- out that tho questions
are too large to be disposed of in the
limited period during which the party
will be here. He indicated that he fav
ors a longer lease of the homesteads
and the creation of a special commis
sion to pass upon applications.
The party is leaving today for Ho
nolulu, and will arrive on- the Mauna
Kea early tomorrow-morning.
' '
Nine memberjs qf the congressional
party will spend a few" hours on
Maul, according to tlie news reaching
Honolilu yesterday. These congress
men will leave the Mauna Kea at La
haina, Maui, tonight, and visit the
Valley Isle for a day, coming to Ho
nolulu Sunday. The queen's -death
caused the change in plans,, shortening
the visit to Maul.' -;
The plans for the visit to Kauai are
s unchanged, according to the. informa
tion at the lnter7Island company's of-
; flee. The congressmen and those ac-
tf companying them will leave on the

While it may be several months be

The line of march formed into fours

missloners, entered the church, the f
last four was leaving Thomas Square.!

SELLING BOOZE TO
p Germanism
Special Investigating- Commit
tee Finds Issues Outside
Mrs. Moe's Charges; Alleged
Teuton Atmosphere May
Cause Action By. Trustees
Trustees of the Queen's hospital
are to hear again from the special
committee of four life members of
the corporation which reported
yesterday on charges preferred
agaiust the institution, this time
on a number of other issues
which, while without the jurisdic
tion of the committee, presented
themselves during the investiga
tion. - One of these issues, or subjects,
which came to the committee's at
tention was the so-called "German
atmosphere" which prevails at the
hospital, and the special commit-N
tee has intimated that this mat
, ter will be laid before the trus
tees for them to take such action
as they may deem necessary.
An announcement of the presenta
tion of these side issues was made at
a meeting of the trustees of the' hos
pital at 3:30 o'clock yesterday after
noon, at wlych time the report of the
special committee, exonerating the
hospital and its' superintendent, Wer
ner Roehl, from charges preferred by
Mrs. William Moe, former superinten
dent of nurses, was adopted. The ex
istence of tlie issues was made known
by, Albert F.. Judd andW.. H. Mcln
prnv of the snecial committee througli
Bruce CartwrighW- Jr., and, George Wr.
Smith trustees, respectively.
Hans . arfi; being made whereby a
special 'meawnr or tne trustees win
be held some time r during the coming
week, when the special committee will
present these issues and leave them
In the hands of the trustees lor action,
it was announced today.
"A trustee said today that there has
been considerable street talk concern
ingand considerable local interest in
the so-called "German atmosphere" at
the hospital, and it was reported to
the Star-Bulletin from good authority
that action may be taken by the
trustees to reorganize the staff of em
ployes and suspend those who are of
German birth.
Superintendent Roehl Exonerated
It has also been reported that what
ever action the trustees take along
this lino Vfill not apply to Superinten
dent Roehl, as he has been completely
exonerated iof the charges made oy
Mrs. Moe, who was formerly , Miss
Agnes Collins. In this connection, a
member of the special committee
points out that there has been abso
lutely no evidence to show that Su
perintendent Roehl is anything but an
efficient hospital manager.
It was learned at the hospital that
but four of the employes are of Ger
man birth. Superintendent Roehl has
been a naturalized American citizen
for years, as have two of the- other
employes. The bookkeeper, Carl J.
Daub, has filed his declaration of in
tention to become an American citi
zen but, because Germany is now at
war with the United States, cannot be
come a citizen until peace has-been;
declared..
A member of the special committee
said today tlfat, in the course of the
investigation of Mrs. Moe's charges, a
number of k other issues presented
themselves which were out of the
jurisdiction of the committee. The
committee was of the opinion, how
ever, that these should be called to
the attention of the trustees. The
"German atmosphere" phase is one of
these. What the others are could not
be ascertained today. . .

"I'm Sorry, Sys" Dojoylong
sol, and Sends Message to
Husband of Woman Ho Shot
"I am borry for what-I did," were
the last words on earth of Erina Do
joylongsol, convicted of the murder
of the mother Of Dolores Morales, the
girl he loved, as then'oose was being
fastened around his"neck on the gal
lows at the Oahu prison this morn
ing. Dojoylongsol was hanged in the
courtyard othe prison penitentiary at
9:13 o'clock this morning In the pres
ence of a few territorial and munici
pal authorities and other citizens.
The convicted man who paid for the
crime with his life, shot and killed the
mother of Dolores at Watertown over
a month ago. Dojoylongsol had been
an ardent suitor for the hand of the
Filipino girl, but his love was appar
ently not returned, for one morning
the convicted man discovered her in
company with another Filipino and
her mother. Infuriated, the rejected
lover fired, hitting and instantly kill
ing the girl's mother. He was trted
and convicted and sentenced to be
hanged.
The courtyard of the prison was
sparsely" filled this norning, only a
few curious people being present to
witness the hanging. High Sheriff
William Jarrett visited the cell of the
doomed man at 9 o'clock and read the
death warrant to him. Without a
quiver Dojoylongsol listened to the
words that sealed his doom, and with
the realization that he would pay for
his crime with his life in less than
fifteen minutes, walked steadily to
ward the scaffold, a guard on either
side of him.
Before he mounted the steps to the
gallows the doomed man turned to
the interpreter and whispered to him.
Tell the husband of the woman I
shot that I am sorry,' and to forgive
me, ne said.
That was all. Sqftaring his shoul
ders, he steadily mounted the steps,
and stood waiting on the platform for
the guard to adjust the noose. The
blcck cap was fitted over his head,
the rope placed around hisheck and
he calmly awaited the springing of
the trap that would send him to eter
nity.; , ' " V
"I am sorry," he said again slowly,
and the trap was sprung t
Dojoylongsol was declared dead fif
teen minutes later. Dr. RudolphBenz

BOTH WILLS OF
Litigation Over Estate Expected
to Begin in Circuit Court
Early Next Week
Two documents, each beaming the
title "Last Will and Testament of Ly
dia Liliuokalani" are scheduled to be
filed In circuit court the early part of
next week. With the filing of these
documents will begin an avalanche of
litigation that may be months in set
tlement. Attorneys watching outfor the in
terests of Prince Kuhio declared to
day that there is no question but that
the delegate will contest both wills,
and that he will not delay action any
great length of time after the docu
ments are filed -in court, together with
the motions for their probate and the
appointment of temporary administra
tors.:' :"- v; .;' ;'' ' :. . r ;
The first document to be filed prob
ably will be the purported will of the
queen which is said to have beeh exe
cuted by her on August 29, 1917. This
document names John F. Colburn as.
executor, and was drawn up by Attor
ney Lorrin Andrews, who says he was
retained by ; the, " queen, and that the
will ; was brought to his office piece
meal , by : persons whose Identity - he
has thus far declined to irake public.
This will is held by Kuhio's attorn
uicys and by the attorneys for tho
Liliuokalani trust, to be "bad." They
have made the . statement that the
queen, owing-to her incapacity, could
not possibly have executed a will at
the time it is alleged she did.
The second 'document to be filed un
doubtedly will be the will executed by
the queen in December, 1909, following
the making of the trust deed. This will
states that the executor shall be the
surviving trustee, which is Colonel
Curtis P. Iaukea. A motion will prob
ably be filed asking that he be aiv
pointed temporary ; administrator. ;
Kuhio will also contest this will, the
attorneys declare. lie challenged its
validity months ago when be brought
a suit in circuit court to break the'
trust In which the queen's property is
held. - ; . ' "
It is not believed that the attorneys
for Colburn will ask; for his appoint
ment as temporary administrator, al
though a motion - for the appointment
of some one to act in tills respect win
