Assessor Curtis Iaukea appeared be
fore the board and stated that he
would have been ready to submit his
bond but for the fact that Dr. McGrew,
one of the sureties, was In Pearl City
and had not returned as expected. He
offered to get Judge Whiting . to ex
plain to the board the status of the
bond. Judge Whiting appeared with
in a few minutes' and stated to the
board that Iaukea's bond had been
drawn up in conformity with the Coun
ty Act, excepting that instead of two
bondsmen qualifying for $150,000 each,
he had procured a number of bonds
men who had c0alified in the total

Chairman Hocking asked whether
curred, the county could hold the re
mainder of the sureties.
Judge Whiting stated further that
it had been the practice of the courts
td apcept bonds In similar form in es
tate matters, where in large bonds,
sureties could not qualify for the entire
amount. He stated also that an in
vestigation would show Federal .offi
cials who gave large bonds, had used
the same form of bond.
District Attorney Rawlins disputed
the statement, saying that he had been
required by Judge Estee to give three
separate sureties for $10,000 each, each
man being required to swear that he
had that much property in the-Terri-tory.

Judge Whiting replied that if Judge
Estee took such a view, he did not
believe he had fully considered the
matter, or that it had been presented
in the proper light. He added that
other Federal officials had given simi
lar bonds to that of Iaukea.
LUCAS IN FAVOR.
Supervisor Lucas asked Judge Whit- f
Ing if, when on the bench, he had ac
cepted similar bonds, and an affirm

Whiting replied that it did except in
Supervisor Lucas said if the sureties
showed they were worth the amount
for which they had signed, he would
favor approval of the bond.
Chairman Hocking said he was sat

he wanted to be certain that the bond
was legally correct.
Lucas said he didn't see why the
bond shouldn't be accepted if proof
