.... chiefs sent orders for coconut, but during Keaweamahi's time she took all of the coconuts for herself. When it came to the Kapuniai's time, he distributed the coconuts between the poalima and the Konohiki. The following claimants received objections for the coconuts.

Keawe, No. 6270 Section 2
Iona K., by No. 3587 Section 1
Apitera Keikiole, No. 6296 Section 2
Manu, No. 6673 Section 3.

Section 3, Kanaele.

Kapuniai had objected to the claim, but the land had extended into Pawale's interest, No. 2982. The reason for this objection was unknown.

Mopua, sworn: after the death of Kaikioewa, Emilia became the governor and Kapehe was the tax assessor. The tax assessor made settlements on the boundaries of this section. He returned that loi for Pawale assuming that it was the boundary of Pawale's moo land, but it was not this way. Earlier it had been a koele loi for the Konohiki. Pawale had it for one or two years, perhaps and then Emilia took it again.

Maihiili is Emilia's loi which adjoins Kanaele and the care taker of Kanaele stole the fish of Maihiili by letting Kanaele's over flow of water into Maihiili. The rise of water in Mailiili brings the fish to the surface and flows into Kanaele. Emilia felt that this action was very mischievous on Pawale's approval. This land has been Emilia and Puniai since that time to the present.

Section 2 has been objected by the heirs of Kekaulike, their reason for this action is unknown to the witness.

Hakuole, sworn, Iona's statement which was made on Tuesday was true and Maluaikoo and Mopua's statements given today were true and accurate.
