‘PRINCESS’ THERESA IS INDICTED ON THE CHARGE OF FORGERY
True Bills Are Also Returned By Grand Jury Against Kamakaia and Kealoha
FRAUDULENT “WILL” IS CAUSE OF ACTION
Woman Is Unmoved and Says It Will Giver Her Chance To “Tell the Real Facts”
“Princess” Theresa Wilcox Belliveau, James Kealoha and “Rev.” Sam Kamakaia were indicted on charges of forgery and conspiracy by the grand jury yesterday afternoon in connection with the “1917 will” that was offered for probate as the last will of the late Queen Liliuokalani and was declared fraudulent by Circuit Judge C. W. Ashford after he had heard confessions in open court from both Kealoha and Kamakaia. No arrests were made last night on the indictments, which are returnable in Judge William H. Heen’s division of the circuit court tomorrow.
“Princess” Theresa was unmoved by news of the indictment. She said she had been awaiting the indictment as a means to get into court and tell “the real facts in connection with the Queen’s estate.”
Honolulu, Dec. 29—Perhaps it is because the desires of Mrs. Owana Wilcox Beleveu [Belliveau] were not appeased over the estate of Queen Liliuokalani that here she is fighting over the estate of the Aliiwahine Pauahi and she is trying to find a way to break the Will, as if she is related to Chiefess Pauahi. What does she expect by starting all of this?
It is heard that she is looking for an attorney on her side to break the Will of Princess Pauahi, and the money to be dedicated to Educate the boys and girls of the Hawaiian Lahui. Something that will result through this action by this woman is the dishonor to the name of Hawaiians, and this improper action will be something reported in other lands. When they find out about this, Hawaiians will definitely not approve of this deceitful act.
