Some time ago two young men at
Ililo, named Caspar and Bennett,
informed on five different persons
for selling liquor without n license.
The eases were all tried on the siimc
clay and two of them were discharg
ed. This caused bud feeling amongst
a certain class of men at Ililo against
these two. They were indicted for
perjury, but were acquitted. Every
species of personal annoyance was
resorted to against them, and the
night before the shooting a notice
headed with a death's head and
cross-bones warning them to leave
the town was posted. They took no
notice of this, and on Wednesday
morning (the 18th), at 1 a.m., five
men broke into the room where they
were sleeping and hauled them out
of bed and began pummelling them.
Caspar got a revolver out of a draw
er about 7 feet away and fired. Two
of the men, R. Douglas and II. B.
Carr, ran away when the firing be
gan. Caspar fired five shots, one of
which hit John McCullum, who died
at G r.M. the same day. Two others
went into Hugh Tennaut (he is like
ly to die), a fourth went right
through C. M. White, teacher of the
Union School. Carr, who was one
of those five fined for selling liquor
without a license, was arrested for
house-breaking. The inquest was to
be held the day the steamer left. A
public meeting was held on Thins
day in the Court House, when reso
lutions were passed to assist the
government olllciuls as much as
possible. No sympathy was express
ed for the foolish men v ho risked
their lives in such a cause. McCul
lum was a Canadian and left $2500
now in Mr. Cartu right's hands. All
the men were well-known in Ililo,
and of general good repute. Caspar
and Bennett have both been arrest
ed, pending the result of the coro
YcBterday afternoon the twehty
thrco Chinamen who were ringleaders
in the so-called riot at Kakaako were
brought up at the Police Coutt. The
Attorney-general appeared for the
prosecution. He did not press for
any punishment and made a long
speech to them of which the follow
ing is the substance : These men
did not understand the law of tins
Kingdom but wherever they were
they must obey the law. They may
have thought they were entitled
to be released but the law
provides aremedy for that. Ho was
afraid that outsiders incited them to
their action. Government had no
wish to be severe. Wo wish them
to know and obey the law. We do
not want people to come here to
wander about and beg. These im
migrants arc not bound to work for
anybody ; but the law compels them
to work for a living, or else go to
gaol. If any of them have means or
money, we have nothing to do with
them. The object in secluding them
was to prevent people enticing them
away. Wo don't want any tiling
similar to the Six Companies of
San Francisco hero. The govern
ment do not proceed further against
them,' but will let them go back to
the depot if they bchavo themselves.
Judge Biekerton then addressed
them, giving them a resume of tho
laws of this country that affected
their present condition, and remind
ing them that they must obey tho
luws of this Kingdom fvliilo they mo
here, lie pointed out that the lavf
were made for all nationalities, and
if their lights were ltif tinged the
Courts would do litem justice. They
must not lake the law into their own
hand. Government claims the right
to inquire if a person lias means ol
support, as wo have laws against
beggars. lie then read the Vagrant
Act to them. The whole of both
addresses was translated by tho in
terpreter. They were then ordered
to be returned to the Depot. An
immense crowd of Chinese listened
to the whole proceedings.
