GO TO Liliu easily established his inno cence and was discharged. The evidence against Punipaka was entirely circumstantial. It was eo conclusive, however, that a verdict of guilty was promptly re turned. Punipaka then confessed that he had killed the woman. There has been correspondence between the Governor of California and tho authorities here on the af fair. California's executive has written that he will investigate the case. Punipaka's friends here are hopeless. The Government will ascertain all the particulars, and, if it is justified, will make an effort to save the man's life. The foreign department is moving promptly in the matter. It was many years ago that John li made a trip to California to save from the gibbet a Hawaiian who had been convicted of murder. Judge li found that the man had not been defended properly. For this and other reasons a commuta tion of sentence to life imprison ment wa3 secured. Punipaka was, as a boy, in the household of Kapiolani, and has a great aloha for that lady. She has taken quite an interest in his case. Punipaka left Hawaii against the wishes of his friends. His relatives tried their best to detain him. Translations of three letters written by Punipaka to a cousin here are given below. They well reflect the thoughts of a simple man in a strange land : Sheriff's Office, Puicerville, Cal., July IS. Kckeleiiiwa Kamaunu: Aloha Oe I let you know, my dear cousin, that I am now in jail. If you have heard from our minister, then you are acquainted with the cause of my being arrested. For the reason of this. I want you to try and sell my land. I need money to pay my law yer. He was appointed by the court to defend me. If you should write to me, put down these figures $72,46S. That would let me know without the people understanding it. If you do not know how to use these figures inquire of some Hawaiian. If you can use these characters, write the in teresting parts of your letter with tbem. I have nothing more to say. Give my aloha to our family. fsince I started to write, the court has appointed another lawyer, so the land need not be sold. Tell the min ister not to sell It. I am here, but my heart is In Hawaii. Punipaka Kamaunu. TWO NEW JUDGES. Tliv Clilff J 'lot ir- ICerently Appointed In fMirbec and Ontario.
