Hearing at my office, 855 Kaahumanu Street on Saturday at 10 o'clock a.m. July 10, 1915.

Present: Wai Wing, the petitioner, also F.J. Testa, who stated that he appeared by request for Andrew McCabe, who claimed a half interest in West Ohia. He also stated that he, acting for Andrew McCabe, agreed to the boundary as set forth in the description and map filed by wai Wing.

The Commissioner informed him that the matter of title was not in his jurisdiction and that McCabe would have to go to the Court of Land Registration to settle his title.

On July 1, 1915, Mrs. William Meyer, the owner of Manawai called on me and after looking over the description and map, stated that she was satisfied with the boundaries as shown as far as they concerned her land and that she did not think it necssary [sic necessary] for her to appear at the hearing on July 10, 1915.

Mr. G.H. Gere[?], land Agent for the Estate Bernice P. Bishop, also called on me during the early part of this month and examined the description and map of West Ohia as filed. He stated that the land of Keawanui was owned by the Estate B.P. bishop and that the boundaries had already been settled and the description and map of West Ohia filed by Wai Wing was the same, so he had no objection to make and therefore would not appear at the hearing. Mr. W.E. Wall, Territorial surveyor was furnished with a description and map of west Ohia during the Month of June 1915, and early this month he called and stated to me that after examining the description and map he, acting for the Government, had no objection to the boundaries as shown by the description and map as far as they adjoined the Government lands.

John K. Kakahio and his son, Moses, was present at the hearing, July 10, 1915 and stated that they owned a Kuleana in East Ohia. They were informed by the Commissioner that any decision he made would not effect the boundaries of a kuleana that had been awarded or granted by metes and bounds and also that the description of west Ohia, as claimed by Wai Wing followed the Kuleana lines.

[page 129]
I therefore adjudge and decree (that it appearing to my satisfaction) that the true, lawful and equitable boundaries of the Ahupuaa of west Ohia, District of Kona, island of Molokai, Territory of Hawaii are as set forth in the metes and bounds above, that were filed with me April 19, 1915 by Wai Wing.
