Ills first prop crty was known as tho llonokaa plan tatlun nnd Its vnluo ran Into tho mil lions In n short time. Ills father lost tho ownership of the plantation through tho instrumentality, Slcmscn alleges, of Joseph Marsdcn, who was bis mnnngcr. Undaunted, Slcmscn went to Germany and returned to tho Islands with sumctcnt money to place the machinery on and to start the Cle ric plantation, of which August Drclcr becamo manager. Drclcr, Recording to tho prisoner, Is his uncle by marriage, Mrs. Drclcr ami nls mother being sisters. Drcler Is now one of tho wealthiest planters in tho Hawaiian Islands, nnd, Slcmscn says, his money was nccumulstcu through his dishonest dealings with Slcmscn's father. The muidcrer learned that his father committed suicide about ten years ago and that tho alleged per fldy of his friend caused htm to dlo by his own band. Slcmscn has been nwny from home for cloven years.

Marsdcn and Henry Sehncfer, tho lata named now manager of what remains of his fath er's estate. Ills mother's falluro to answer bis last letter, Slcmsen claims, was tho cause of his launching Into the world of crime. Soon alter ho met Hulda Von Hofen tho prisoner wroto to his mother that ho desired to marry nnd scttlo down In life. He received no answer to tHo missive, nnd then turiicf to theft ns n means of gaining sufficient money to start a homo nnd llvo In case.
