Believe Slew Kimana Girl
. Jose Bltlnuevs Filipino, convicted
more than a year ago on a charge of
murdering Harriet Kunane. a Kohala
school girl, has been pardoned by the
governor: . , - . .
The ; pardon, announced today, by
Governor Plnkham,' represents his
second act. of clemency in the case of
Bilinuee.'as the .' sentence, of death
under! wh,icb he - was . brought to Ho
nolulu had already been commuted to
life . imprisonment. Governor - Pink
ham : makes : the ; following statement
In regard to the pardon: '-
-I , am thorpughly of the belief . that
Jose Bllinueva is not the man that
murdered .Harriet Kunane. After, sev
en: months .study of the case from,
ev ery; angle 1. had become convinced
that the!; charge: against him had not
beep' -proven, ' and .that . there: were a
number, of. missing, links in the chain
of'testimony.y . '
-".For this treason I commuted': the
death sentence to one of life impris
onment; Since then I have been v. dis
turbed. hightV and day over the case,
fearing , that . r had deprived an ; inno
cent' man 6f. his liberty. " '

It. is' said that ,th. purpose ' of get
ting" the' lands under territorial con
trol Is to .make easier .the securing, of
a: federal appropriation, ; As long: as
private persons hold the wharf ?and
railroad sites lt'ls ;not: deemed likely
that congress: will : appropriate funds
which will multiply the value ot these
holdings. This is " not . congressional
poUcjvltIa argneiVi;;. -.
On, tie .ether' hand -If the' territory
comes into possession of the sites and
it - Is made plain to congress , that not
one individual or grouy of individuals
will suddenly reap a harvest fif wealth
as -a. result' of the breakwater's being
built, it is held much more likely that
the project: wfU be given backing. y r -
- 8cm of the congressmen 'recently
vlsitlnr ' the territory.' touched upon
this point in discussing various public
Improvements for: which appropria
tions may. be sought . ( '. " i
; One of -them remarked in a discus
sion , ot local conditions with a repre

had found communities on the Islands
whereat would be impossible ;for a
newcomer to' purchase land enough to
put tn a store that might compete with
stores already established and owned

efforts of Prince Ropprecht to .nullify
the advantages gained for the British
