F.S.

Loebenstein is a material witness in the case, but is at present unable to testimony, on account of ill heath, as shown by the certificate of the Physician, Dr. C.L.

Loebenstein, who as we are informed made the survey of the land, and he is not now in the Territory, having gone to assist the Federal authorities in making a survey of the Harbor at Guam, or at Midway island, and is expected to return here in a few days.

Inasmuch as the correctness of said survey is objected to, it is necessary to have the testimony of said A.D.

Comes now the Pepeekeo Sugar Company Limited, the petition in the above entitled cause and moves that the Commissioner of Boundaries herein continue the hearing of the said cause until such time as the said petitioner can obtain the necessary evidence to sustain the petition now pending herein.

This motion is based upon the records and files in this cause together with the affidavit hereto attached.
(Signed) F.S. Lyman, Attorney for Petitioner
Hilo, Hawaii, August 25th 1906

(copy of James Webster's Affidavit)
James Webster, being first duly sworn, say upon his oath: That he is now and at all times hereinafter referred to has been the manager of the Pepeekeo Sugar Company, Limited, petitioner for the certificate of boundary on the land known as Kahua 2nd, in South Hilo;

That as manager of the said company, this affiant has undertaken on behalf of the said company to determine the proper boundaries of a portion of the lands of Kahua 2nd, which said portion is owned by the said company.;

That in pursuance of the attempt to establish the proper boundaries of said land in behalf of said company, this affiant employed Mr. A.B. Loebenstein, who is now and for many years last past, has been a land surveyor, practicing his profession within the District of South Hilo.

That the said A.B. Loebenstein, by reason of his great experience and study of the [page 668] boundaries of the lands situate within the District of South Hilo, which said study has extended over a period of many years, is an expert upon the location of boundaries of all the lands within the District of South Hilo and particularly an expert upon the location of the boundaries of the land in the near vicinity of the said Company's lands.

That by reason of the learning and experience of the said A.B. Loebenstein, he has a large amount of evidence in his possession and known personally a large number of facts which enable him to determine with accuracy the boundaries of the lands aforesaid, and more particularly, the portion of the land of Kahua 1st, which said boundaries are involved in the matter now pending before the Commissioner aforesaid;

And that affiant further says that after the said A.B. Loebenstein has been employed by the said company for the purposes aforesaid, he began a systematic and careful study of the boundaries of several lands within the near vicinity of the disputed boundaries aforesaid and of the boundaries of the lands adjoining the land of Kahua 1st, which said study is necessary to determine so far as may be, the exact boundaries of the said lands of Kahua 1st.

That the said A.B. Loebenstein went upon the ground in person and with his assistants, and there made several examinations of the custom of the land and of the natural monuments there existing, and from the observations and study made by the said A.B. Loebenstein upon the ground and from the data obtained from the assistants employed by him, he began the careful investigation [page 669] of surveys, conveyances, and maps now in the possession of the Land Department of the Territory of Hawaii, an [and] with the view of obtaining information and evidence which would entitle him to come to a conclusion as to their exact present location of the boundaries of all the said land and particularly of the portion of the land of Kahua 1st which is owned by the said company and of the land of Kaupakuea, Kahua 3 and Makahanaloa;

That the investigations of the said A.B. Loebenstein, aforesaid had been carried on for a period of nearly two years;

And this affiant further says that he believes and therefore asserts the fact to be tha ....

That on the 6th day of May, A.D. 1910 my attention was called to the fact that the Pepeekeo Sugar Company had filed its brief therein and that the Territory of Hawaii had been given until June 1st A.D. 1910, in which to file its brief and I was there asked by the Court if I desired time in which to file a brief for the said Emily P. Kinney, to which I remarked that I did not know if she wished to go to further expense in the matter, but in order to protect her rights in the premises and believing it my duty to do so, I asked for an order giving her until June 1st in which to file her brief. That upon notifying the said Emily P. Kinney of my action in the matter she denied my right or authority to appear for her, and obtain said order or take any steps whatever in the cause and demanded that I have the said order rescinded:

That my appearance and action in requesting the said order was of my own notion, without special or other employment to do so, and was done as a mater [sic] of courtesy owing to my having been formerly employed in the cause and no other attorney appearing of record in my stead.

Kahua 2d Ahupuaa, District of Hilo, Island of Hawaii, Boundary Commission, Hawaii, Volume D, No. 5; pps 698-710

Before the Commission of Boundaries of the Fourth Judicial Circuit, Territory of Hawaii

In the Matter of the Boundary of Sections 2 and 3 of Kahua Second, District of Hawaii, upon the petition of the Pepeekeo Sugar Company, a corporation

Decision

The evidence in this case is insufficient to warrant the Commission in adjudging the boundaries of Sections 2 and 3 of Kahua second to be as alleged by the petitioner by the Territory or by Emily P. Kinney.

A Preponderance of the evidence shows that the Ahupuaa of Kahua, awarded in 1852 to Kahonu, extended in a westerly direction to Huinawai, as alleged by the petitioner; but the Commissioner will not adjudge its boundary to be as claimed in the application, for the reason that the petitioner's interest therein is not disclosed by the evidence; no title having been proved, by the introduction of the deeds or otherwise to any portion of the said konohiki land. The mission is fatal, for the right to apply for certification of boundaries is conferred, by Section 353 of the Revised Laws, only upon owner's of the land, and proof of such ownership is indispensable.

The Territory has introduced kamaaina testimony, a portion of which has been discredited, tending to show that Kahua 2nd extends in a westerly direction only as far as Kananaka and that the land lying between that point and Huinawai is known as Kahua 3rd; the Territory's claim that the line runs from Kananaka to the northern boundary by [page 699] course and distance as alleged in the answer is based chiefly upon the map attached to the Pelham patent, and upon Kanakanui's testimony as to the meaning of a dotted line, show [shown] thereon beyond the limits of the land conveyed by said patent. There is nothing to show who made the map or upon what authority the words "Kananaka end of Kahua 2nd. The dotted line is not straight. Kanakanui has estimated the angle which it makes with the Pelham boundary and has calculated the distance represented by the extended line to Makea stream. Upon this and similar testimony the Commissioner is asked to fix definitely the western boundary of Kahua 2nd. The testimony is insufficient.

As to the boundaries of section 2 of Kahua second the answer of the Territory does not set forth its claims nor does the answer prove that the boundaries of said second section be established otherwise than as asked by the petitioner.

The extent to which Emily P. Kinney is interested in the boundaries of Section 2 does not appear in her answer or in the evidence. The transcript (page 420) shows that her counsel offered what purported to be a deed to his client from Mrs.[?] Jordai & about one acre of land, touched by the disputed boundaries, but this offer was withdrawn upon petitioner's admission of record that the said Emily P. Kinney had some interest in the land.

Nowhere in the pleadings or proof is there any statement of the boundaries of her own land and the court in this proceeding brought upon the application of another, will not fix for her the boundaries of the entire tract described as Section 2.

The Territory and Emily P. Kinney have filed [page 700] no briefs in the case and their specific claims, based upon the evidence, have not been made known to the Commissioner, except by inadequate oral argument at the time of the hearing.

For reasons herein above set forth the petition is dismissed without prejudice at the petitioner's costs.

Judgment in accordance with this decision will be signed when presented by counsel.
