A I10RR1ULE MURDER.
As reported by wireless in the
News of last week tho most horrible
murder in tho annals of crimino-
ogy in tho Territory was commit
ted last week at Waialua.
Sheriff Brown and Chester Doyle
went to Waialua and found that
little three year old Seaman Whar
ton had been murdered and tho re
mains Horribly mutilated. Thev
were found hurried about 100 yards
from tho Wharton house. Tho in
vestigation goes to cause tho officers
to strongly suspect Frank Johnson
of the crime. Tho child wa3 seen
going in Johnson's company in the
morning, in tho direction of the
crime was com
in met the child was last see
aiono with Jonnson. They were
then going in the direction of
gulch near tho Wharton house,
About noon Johnson reappeared
coming from an entirely different
direction than the one in which ho
had last been seen going with tho
child. On his clothes wore found
stains which the officers aro con
fidenco aro blood marks, marks
tho innocent blood of little baby
Wharton. Tho boby of the murder
ed child was not discovered unti
about 5 o'clock in tho evening. The
body had been buried about u foot
deep under somo kolu hushes not
more than 100 yards from the
Tho condition of tho littlo body
or rather what remained of it, was
shocking. So heartrending was tho

but the foulest fiend in human
form, could have perpetrated such

ess tho fiend confesses the details
of his crime.
Tho head was severed from the
body, and tho little arms cut off at
tho elbows, the baby limbs severed
at the knees. The nose and ears
ad be cut from tho tiny head, the
eyes oi the littlo one had been
gouged out. Tho littlo body had
not escaped mutilatiun. The blood
reeking hand of tho murderer had
slashed a long deep gash in tho
trunk then disembowelled tho body
and thrown the entrails away
about thirty feet from tho spot
here tho body was later found.
Into tho awful wound in the
body had been thrust tho littlo
severed feet and legs. Then tho
fiend had dug a hasty grave into
which were thrown tho mutilated
remains of the victim. A hasty
mound of earth was thrown up to
obliterate tho trace of tho crime
and the murderer hurried away.
The police have secured a chain
of evidence which connects John
son with tho crime. The arrested
man takes his positition coolly
enough and does not appear to be
especially nervous. Tho officers
had not questioned him this after
noon .but he will bo subjected to a
severe cross-examination under the
direction of tho Sheriff, probably

the crime. Cox notified Sheriff
Brown last night of the occurrence
and progress of the investigation.
Cox stated to the sheriff that there
