.... ld these patches before my husband and there has not been any poalima labor done on any of those patches during my residence here. The poalima patches of Paalaa are in another place entirely. The patches in dispute may have been poalimas a very long time ago, but certainly not within 20 years past. Hii got the land more than ten years ago, and has occupied it most of the time. He went to Honolulu in 1849 and came back recently. (Claimant says Halali had charge of this land during his absence to Honolulu).

Claimant paid for his poalima labor days during the time my husband was konohiki. No one went to the labor days for this land after 1849, so far as I know.

Koiniho, sworn says that during the time Kapuni was konohiki of Paalaa, the poalima labor was never expanded on any of these patches, nor at any time during my recollection, and I was born here. He confirms the testimony given by last witness.

Former decision confirmed.

No. 8155, Hii vs. M. Kekuanaoa, 7 July 1852

There are six poalima patches in Hii's claim which M. Kekuanaoa is requesting to be removed.

Hii: There is no Friday poalima in this land. It has been put out of the koele.

Keliihuluhulu: There are six koeles just as the request has claimed and Kahiko and L. Kuokoa have said this also.

Land officer: Are there poalima patches in your claim:

Hii: I suppose so. These people here are saying so; however, I have never seen it as a poalima since I have lived off the land to this day.

Decision: The konohiki has won the six poalima patches and the rest of the remaining places are for Hii.
