Bondinen Willing to I'av and Keliered that Amount is Small Lambert Will bo Arrested and Sent Hack to Cali fornia Miss Mahaney Returns Today. Mention was made in these col umns yesterday of the presence in Honolulu of Walter R. Lambert, fugitive police court clerk of Oak land, Cal., and Mis Gertie Maba- WALTER R. LAMBERT. (Reproduced from the S. F. Examiner.) ney, a young lady of the same city. The couple arrived here by the Mariposa under the name of "F. N. Thomas and wife." The San Francisco Examiner of March 16th prints the following touching the disappearance of Lambert : Oakland, March 16. The experts today succeeded in opening the safe which the fugitive police court clerk, Walter R. Lambert left behind. Thirteen bail bonds for Chinese lot tery dealers, a stack of unpaid bills, a slip of paper with "$10" and R. B. S.York" written upon it, a California bank book, which showed a balance of $26 due the department more than offset by outstanding checks and a lot of torn bits of paper comprised the contents of the safe. While the meager contents of the clerk's safe were being discussed, Henry Evers and O. C. Kirk, Lam bert's bondsmen, looked on A9 every one, excepting Lambert's friends, be lieved, there was not a thing resem bling money not even a cent in the affair. Expert York and Auditor Snow completed the work of inspecting Lambert's books today, and to the great relief of the bondsmen found the total defalcation to be small. "We thought yesterday that Lam bert was over $16,000 short," said Auditor Snow today, ''but we are glad now that our apprehensions have not been verified. The total shortage will not be over $2000." BONDS MAY BE BOGUS. Expert York says that some of the bonds on file may be bogus, and if this be so the shortage will be greater. MIfc'S GERTIE MAHANEY. (Reproduced from the S. F. Examiner.) The custom of Chinese lottery dealers is to put up cash bail first and then, after the case has been set, to substi tute a bond for the cash. Now, if many of the bonds found in the safe are forged, Lambert took more money than he is supposed now to have ab sconded with. The bondsmen will indemnify the State for Lambert's defalcation with out makirg any contest. In addition to his shortage as clerk, Lambert owes nearly every merchant, saloon man and restauranteur in Oak land who would trust him. The fun eral of his wife is still uupaid for. Attorney Thomas Bradley is out $1U0 because of his faith in Lambert. As counsel for a Chinese lottery dealer Bradley wished to draw down $100 cash bail, having put up the necessary bonds. He wrote a receipt for the money. Lamberc took the receipt, saying he was busy and would give Bradley a check. That was last Thurs day and the lawyer has not since seen the clerk. Gertie Mahaney, the young woman who is supposed to have eloped with Lambert to Honolulu, was well known in Oakland. She formerly lived at Fourteenth and Washington streets, just opposite the City Hall. MARRIED THE PARTNER OK HIS FLIGHT John Mahaney, her father, said last night tbat be was greatly surprised to learn of Lambert's defalcation. "My daughter and Lambert were properly married," he said, "and they sent me a letter telling me so. 1 know my girl would not say so if it were not true. I knew she was ac quainted with Lambert, and he was a widower, and when I received word a few days ago that they were married I was not altogether surprised. I was totally unprepared for the news that they had gone to Honolulu." Walter Lambert's career in Oakland has been a varied one. Six mouths ago he created a scene in the police court by making some irrelevant re marks to Judge Allen. He also stared at a wituess for several mir.utes in stead of swearing him and convinced the court that he was out of his mind. He was taken away by his friends but renewed his crazy behavior in a saloon and wTas arrested as insane. He was taken to the county jail and con fined for a few days No judicial ex amination was held, but Dr. Stratton pronounced him sane again and be was liberated. On several other oc casions Lambert was kept under re straint by his friends and was looked upon as a dangerous man when he bad taken a few drinks. HONOLULU IS NOT SAFE. Lambert's bondsmen, O. C. Kirk and Henry Evers, were interested ob servers when Lambert's safe was opened, although they said that they did not expect to find anything in it. If Lambert has gone to Honolulu he may run into Lou Evers, who holds a position in the Hawaiian army. Lou is a son of Henry Evers, one of Lam bert's bondsmen. Lambert's offense is an extraditable one, and word will be sent by the next steamer to Honolulu to the Hawaiian authorities to arrest Lambert and ship him back to California. An afternoon paper printed an interview yesterday with Lambert, in which he admit ted being the party mentioned above, but denying he was short in his accounts or that he fled from Oakland on account of any irregularity. Lambert and Miss Mahaney or "F. N. Thomas and wife" as regis tered, are still in the city. Rumor has it that some dis agreement has arisen between the couple, and that the lady will re turn to Oakland by the Alameda today. - REPAIRS AT THE REEF. Political Prisoners Fare Well New Dark Cells being Made. Jailor Low is having consider able improvements made at the reef. The old and partially dark cells in the basement have been torn out and four new ones are being constructed on the Ewa side of the building. These will be ar ranged similar to those dark cells in use in penitentiaries of the United States. Air-pipes will be put in allowing perfect ventila tion, forcing foul odors upwards by pipes, together with improved sanitary appliances. The capacity of the buildings were taxed to their utmost during the time so many of the political prisoners were to be cared for. The makai wing of the main building gave away on account of the heavy weight of the prisoners kept in the upper story. A number of the cells below were cracked from the same cause. Bowler and Walker were put to work repairing the building, and, through their experienced ef forts, the walls and cells have been put in first-class condition. Rickard, Seward, Ashford and Marshal are looking quite well, con sidering their recent illness. They are not required to perform any labor, spending most of the time in the hospital department. The men have no complaint to make and are submitting to the inevitable with the best grace possible. "Sequah," the great medicine man, will speak in L'nion Square this evening at 7 :30. The doctor is making arrangements to occupy the old Armory on Beretania street. An outfit of chariot and other advertising material will arrive on the next steamer from the Colonies. WHY THURSTON WAS RECALLED, Told How Cleveland Tried to Deceive Congress About Cable. NO SUCCESSOR MAY BE NAMID. If the Hawaiian Government fall to Accredit Another 1'erion Minister Willis Will Be Obliged to Take a Lenrc of AWnrr-Mori l'rre1ent Chicago, March 20. The Tribune' special from Washington says : "Min ister Thurston was given the credit by the Administration of supplying tho information which put the Presi dent in the position of having at tempted to deceive Congress as to the cable situation. The result was natural, but was galling to the Presi dent, particularly as the Senate abso lutely ignored his recommendation so far as action is concerned. Instead a rider was tacked on to the Diplomatic and Consular Appropriation bill pro viding for a cable to Hawaii, to be built and owned by the United States, and appropriating $500,000 to begin the work. The amendment passed the Senate triumphantly, but it failed in the House. Both the President and Secretary Gresham were exceedingly angry over the cable incident. On February 18th, the date of publication of the inter view with Thurston to which excep tion has been taken, the Diplomatic and Consular bill was still in confer ence and the Senate seemed deter mined to snub the President. Then it was that the interview between Secretary Gresham and Minister Thurston took place. The publica tion of tho diplomatic correspondence was a convenient pretext, but the cable amendment was voted into the appropriation bill and the consequent direct interference with Gresbam's department was the real caus belli and both parties to the stormy inter view so understood it. Mr. Thurston, it is said, does not know who will be his successor, but it is intimated tbat Frank Hatch may be selected, and be will represeut tue ideas and views that have been pro mlnent during the mission of Mr. HP!. wmmt nmm X lllllStoii, Mr. Hatch is said to be unusually well qualified for the position. As to the outcome regarding Thr.rs- ton there is much doubt, for it all rests with the Hawaiian Government and depends upon whether tbat Gov ernment takes the ground tbat Its Minister has been attacked because of personal reasons, or whether it may regard the demand for his recall as the result of the faithful execution of oflieial charges confided to his care. Of course, the Minister will go in either case, but if the Hawaiian Gov ernment takes tho latter view it will simply omit to credit another person to succeed him, and in thiscnsoMr. Willis, our Minister to Hawaii, will be obliged to take a leave of absence, just as Mr. Porter, Minister to Italy, did, wheu Baron Fava was recalled as the result of the killing of bis fellow countrymen in New Orleans four years ago. PINEAPPLE CANNING FACTORY Mr. Emmeluth Has Purchased a Plant of the Latest Pattern. Word has been received from J. Emmeluth that he expects to re turn to Honolulu by the Australia. He has purchased a pineapple can ning plant of the latest improved pattern. It is expected the ma chinery will arrive here about tlte first of May. Mr. Emmeluth found it neces sary to journey to New York and Baltimore in order to have manu factured certain portions of the machinery which could not be procured on the Coast. People in the East to whom Mr. Emmeluth explained the size of pineapples grown in the Islands inclined to the belief that he was an apt dis ciple of Baron Munchhausen. It was Mr. Emmeluth's inten tion to visit Washington and con fer with Minister Thurston regard ing certain matters affecting the production and sale of pineapples, but he has likely deferred his jour ney on account of that gentleman having left for Honolulu. 9 t W. G. Irwin did not receive any advices from J D. Spreckels by the China regarding the rebuilding of the opera house. Mr. Irwin, who leaves by the Alameda, will discuss the matter with that gen tleman on his arrival at San Francisco.
