The complete change of program
still continues In the House. This
morning It wast something entirely
new being n little pass between Km

"Mi Ktnmeliith." said Makalnal,
"asked from me Inst Saturday n de

times both during thin session and the
late regular session, objected to the
extravagant expenditures nf tho
House Tho record of the Accounts
Committee shows that tho Printing
Committee, of course, headed the list.
The Molokat Committee came second,
while Mi. Kmnieluth's Finance Com
mittee came third, having spent over
JP.'OO which was hundreds of dollars
nhcnil of any other committee.
"It has not been the fault of my
committee thnt extravagant prices
have been foolishly paid by tho Hourfe.
All I hate to do Is to approve war
rants and bills, and sotuo of tho larg

nm willing to look over tho record of

It, for every bill contracted by us was
legitimate. What I do claim Is that
Home bills patil were not legitimate,
imil It Is the right of the Houso to
know about the current expenses of
this session."
M nmmeluth then proceeded to In
troduce n relscd report on tho salary
bill, but Robertson objected to It on
the giound thnt tho arlous commit

departments to which they related.
Ills action was sustained.

The hearing on the application of U
A. Thurston for a writ of habeas corpus
before Chief Justice Frear was post
poned this morning until Wednesday.
The story of the long tlmo given tho
respondent In which to get ready for
his showing before tho Supreme Court,
tcgether with the additional chapter i
of the two days' postponement, upon
the Chief Justice's own suggestion, is
best told In the movements of L, A.
Thurston with reference to tho
' client," whose name he refused to glvo
to tho Grand Jury. ,
The client was J. L. Cowpcr'r.f Ha
waii. When the order of Judg imph
lejs was made directing L. A. Tl tirston
to give the name of his cllnt jto the
Grant! Jury, or to go to Jili, 'jsrper
was on the Ulg Island. The record of

Judge Humphrcvs, were very embnr
rnslng Impediments In the wny of a,
favorable decision for Thurston
Time was needed for th" respondent,
Thurston, to reach h' llent, Coerper.
The wireless telegraph tho telephone,
nnd the returning Kiunii would bring
Coerper to tho Capital City, Saturday.
He would then be here to remove tho
"professional leashes" of restraint
from tho lips of Thurstcyi. Thuriton
could obey the orders of Judge Humph
rcjs. Tho Chief Justice could escape
the necessity of choosing between re-'
versing himself or sending Thurston to
Jail. Accordingly tho hearing on the
Thurston writ af habeas corpus was set i
for today, live dnvs utter his com
mittment by Judge Humphreys. '
Accordingly, Thurston dispatched a
telegram to Gardner K. Wilder nnd J.
L. Coerper to Marconi thcro to he
transmitted to Holunlon by telephone.
saving "Send Coerper to Honolulu by
this Klnau. Extremely Important."
Signed. Charles T. Wilder.
Mr. Cociper received the message
late Inst Friday evening. Ho came to
Honolulu by the Klnnu. He hunted up
Charles T, Wilder nnd raid, " Igot jour
telegram." "That wns not rtl) mes
sage," said Wilder, "but I signed It.
Thurston had to see jou."
Too genial German, Mr. Coerper. felt
a variety of sensations, nnd whin h
airived nt his room, onl to be In
formed that nn otllcer had been there,
with characteristic Griman stolidity,
he said to himself' "If they want mo
so badly, let them find me."
Ho therefore remained closo In his
room over Sunday nnd this morning
was not In a hurry to run up to the

Acordlngly, Chief Justice Frear,
when the case was called, said that
owing to tho pressure of other Import
ant business this rate would have to
be continued until Wednesday,
A. S. Hnrtwcll, attorney for Thurs
ton, naively stated that ho would really
piefcr to go ahead with the hetrlng,
hut would of com so submit to the
pleasure of the Court.
TMim tho, court adjourned, L. A.
Thurston went down Merchant street
to Fort, turning down, stopping at tho
shop of Martin, the tailor. Here ho
was conferring with I A. McCnndless
and other friends, when his- "client,"
Mr. Coerper, camo up, Tho greeting
was cordial and the twain, Thurston
and Coerper, went nway togcthci.
Tho relation of attorney and client
between Thurston nnd Coerper con
rlsted of the latter securing the ser
vices of tho former In drawing up cer
tain forms to bo used In securing
rights of way fron land holders, for the
Konn-Ivohala railroad. It was during
conferences about this railroad busi
ness that Coerper told Thurston cer
tain members of the lower house had
asked him "What id there in It?"
when pressed to pass tho Konn-Kohalt
ence with the Legislature, through his
railroad bill. Mr. Coerper talked free
ly of the whole matter from Ms cxperl
expcrlence with Tliurslon,to his re
ceipt of tho telegram last Friday nt
He hardly knew what to make of the
whole, mntler but was willing that
everything bo made known.
WHt-hi know nbout bribery Is
summed up In these -words: "I was
pressing tho merits of my railroad bill
upon members of tho Legislature. In
three Instances, he says he was asked
"What Is there In It?" "What do you
think it ought to bo worth?" He re
plied In two Instance. To his query,
one response wns, $1,000 .another
$1500. "At this rato I thought I would
be broke," sild Mr. Coerper. "So I

Tho failure of Mr. Thurston to con

The seal has been removed from the
lips of L A. Thurston unless Coerper
