Iolani Palace, 1882.

THE NEW PALACE.

The sum of the people’s money that was spent to build Aliiolani Hale and for the purchase of the parcels of land for its grounds totaled $135,000! The losses for the Hawaiian Hotel [Hotele Hawaii] and its grounds were $116,000. However, if these two sums of money were added together, then it would not equal the costs to build the new palace, which is known to exceed costs of $300,000. We believe that there has been misconduct and impropriety in the construction of the new palace.

We wish that our many solon [solona] and the wise men of this legislative session will investigate thoroughly where the money of the people was spent rashly.
