GREAT BARRIER MURDER.
At 8 o'clock on Monday, Feb. 21,
the extreme sentence of the lnw was
carried into effect on John Caffrcy
and Henry Albert Pens, who, at
the January sittings of the Supremo
Court, were convicted of the wil
ful murder of Robert Taylor, at
Tryphena Harbour, Great Barrier
Island. Those present were: Major
Green (Sheriff), Mr. II. C. Brewer
(Registrar of the Supreme Court),
l)rs. Wnlkcr, Brad, Cobbott, nnd
Philson, Messrs. E. P. Donnelly,
Alfred Crocker, and Press repre
sentatives. Mr. Superintendent
Thomson, Sergeant Pratt, nud De
tective Tuohy were also in the prison
Shoitlv before eight o'clock the
hangman, Lewis, who was scarcely
disguised with a crape veil, through
which his features wero plainly
visible, entered the enclosure in
which the gnllows was erected, from
tho refrnctory-ynrd, and took away
the pinioning straps from the scaf
fold. Just then tho prison bell
tolled, and the procession entered
from the refractory-yard, headed by
Mr. Rcston, Governor of tho Gaol,
and Dr. Philson, followed immedi
ately by Caffrcy between the Rev.
J. S. Hill and a warder, and im
mediately after them came Pcnn
between Mr. Brakcnrig and a
warder, the procession closing with
n number of wnrders.
The condemned men walked up
the ladder to the platform with a
firm tread, but without tho slightest
bravado. They were calm and ap
parently quite happy, and just be
fore the white caps were drawn over
their faces they leaned forward nnd
kissed each other.
Mr. Hill engaged in prayer on the
scaffold, and as lie concluded sud
denly tho drop fell, nnd the startling
simultaneous thud of both ropes,
which had a drop of eight feet, elec
trified those present, and all was
over. There was not the slightest
vibration of cither rope, and, with a
feeling of satisfaction, all present
saw that death in each instance had
After an hour had elapsed, tho
bodies wero taken down, and form
ally examined by Dr. Philson and
Dr. Cobbett, who, of course, found
life extinct. It was ascertained
that the tho necks of both had been
dislocated, and that death must have
An inquest as required by law,
was held at ten o'clock, in tho Gaol,
before Mr. R. C. Barstow, Coroner,
and a jury, consisting of Mr. J. T.
J. Tigho, T. Hedgcr, S. Swain, E.
Gunning, and John Hatton, (who
had been empanelled in tho neigh
borhood. The evidence of Major
Green (Sheriff), Mr. Rcston, (Gov
ernor of the Gaol), and of Drs.
Philson nnd Cobbett having been
taken, the jury returned a verdict
that the deceased were executed in
accordance with law.
Owing to the hour at which the
condemned men were to be buried
being published in one of tho even
ing papers on Saturday, tho burial
of the condemned men had to be
postponed. Their funeral took
place during tho course of Feb. 22,
at Waikomiti cemetery, in tho Angli
can consecrated ground, permission
having been accorded for that pur
pose. Tho arrangements were in
the bauds of Mr. George Leaning,
undertaker, who conducted tho
funeral precisely in tho same man
ner as in ordinary cases in private
life. Tho Rev. J. S. Hill read the
servico at the grave, nnd Mr. Brak
cnrig also took part in tho proceed
ings. Pcnn left his Bible in his cell open
where he had been reading. It wns
the 53rd chapter of Isaiah.
As the hangman wns pinioning
Caffrcy, and fixing tho belt round
his waist, Caffrcy complained of tho
belt being too tight, as ho was suf
fering from cramp in tho stomach,
and adjusted tho belt -to his own
As Caffrey and Penn wero stand
ing to attention pinioned, listening
to the reading of the lengthy death
warrants by the Sheriff, nnd Penn
remarked to Mr. Hill, ''This is tho
valley you spoks of," and Mr. Hill
replied, in the passage from the 23d
Psalm, "Yea, though I walk through
tho valley of tho shadow of death, I
will fear no evil ; for thou art with
me; thy rod and thy staff they
Even after tho white caps had
been drawn over the faces of the
roon Mr. Hill could hear them re
citing tho lines of the hymn, "Jesus,
Lover of My Soul," till tho bolt was
During tho time of execution,
Mrs. Calder, wife of tho incumbent
of All Saints Church, Ponsonby,
with great kindness and forethought
went to tho residence of Mrs. Pcnn,
sen., and did what lay in her power
to comfort tho bereaved and angu
Caffrcy and Penn wero sentenced
to death on a Saturday. On Sunday,
Caffrey told Mr. Hill ho desired to
mnko a statement, when tho latter
told him to wait till tho Monday.
Next day Caffrey said ho wns desir
ous that Penn should stato tho whole
truth concerning the affair, and then
ho was prepared to meet his fate.
Pcnn mado a statement and so did
Caffrcy, but these did not harmon
ize, and tho discrepancies wero
pointed, out to tho men. Pcnn
thereupon mado a fuller and com
plete statement, admitting his full
share in tho murder. Caffrcy was
so pleased with Pcnn's frankness that
ho wrung his hand and said, "Now
that you have told me the truth like
a man, I am ready to go to tho
scaffold with you." Both men
broke down and cried together, be
coming from that moment recon
ciled, and fast friends till they
ended life together on tho gallows.
Both men died admitting their guilt,
nnd tho justice of their sentence.
The Bulgarian revolution is in full
play. Emperor William's speech in
tho Reichstag is not regarded ns
altogether reassuring. Meanwhile
there aro rumors of anti-English in
fluence at work at Paris.
No news has been received to-day

Great Excitement in Wales
about a Marvellous Cure.
Living Six Years Without
Going1 to Bed.
Mil. Editoh: 'While upending a few
days nt tho pleaant scasldo town of
Abcrystulth, Cardiganshire, Wales. I
heard related what seemed to mo either
n fabulous story or u marvellous cure.
The story wns Unit a poor sufferer who
had not hicn ahlo to lie down in bed for
six long years, glvcu up to dlo by nil tho
Doctors, had been speedily cured by
some Patent Medicine. It wns related
with tho more Implicit confidence from
the circumstance; ns wns suid. that tho
Vicar of Llanrystyd was familiar with
tho facte, nnd could vouch for tho truth
of the report.
Having a little curiosity to know how
such stories grow In travelling, I took
the liberty while at the village of Linn
ryttyd to call upon the Vluir, tho Ho v.
T. Evans, and to enquire about this
wonderful cure. Though a tolnl Btrnn.
gcr to him, both ho nnd his wlfa most
graciously cnturtiinid me in a half
hour'scouvorsation. principally touching
the caso of Mr. Pugh, In which they
seemed to take u deep and sympathetic
interest, having been familiar with his
sullcrlngs. and now rejoiced In what
seemed io them a most lcmnrkablo cure.
llo strongly touched Mr. Win. Pugh's
character as a lespectalile farmer and
worthy of credit. I left tho venerable
Vlcnr with a livelier tense of tlie happy
relation of a pastor and people, feeling
that ho wns ono who truly sympathised
with nil who ate ollllcttd minimi, body,
On my return to Aberjstwitli, I wns

"abovo tho dingle," situated near the
summit of u smooth round hill, over
looking a beautiful valley in which is
situated the lovely ivymantlcd Church
of Lhuiddeinol. I found Mr. Pugh,
apparently about 40 years old, of medium
height, rather slight, with n plca-nntniid
intelligent face. I told him I hnd heard
of his great affliction and of his remark
able nnd almost mlmculous relief, nnd
that I hnd conto to learn from his own
lips, what there was of truth in the re
ports. Mr. Pugh remarked that his neigh
bors had taken ti kindly and symp
athetic Interest In his enso for many
yciiM, but of Into their Interest hnd bem
greatly awakened by n happy change In
his condition. What you leport lis hav.

unedrslood that my casu was ever given
up ns hopeless by nny Physicinn. I
have been treated by scveial Doctors
hereabouts, ns good us any In Wnles, but
unfortunately no prescription of theirs
ever brought thu desired relief.
Fifteen years ago, ho said, I first be
came conscious oi a sour and deranged
stomach and loss of appetite, which the
Doctors told me was Dytpepsln. What
food I could hold iu my stomach seem
ed to do mo no good nnd was often
thrown up with painful retchings. This
was followed after n timo with n hoarse
ness nnd a raw soreness of tho throat
which tho Doctors called bronchitis,
nuil I was treated for that, but with
little success. Then cnino shortness of
breath nnd n sense of sutlbcatlon, cspc.

would have to get out of bed and some
times open n door or window in winter
weather to till my lungs with the cold
Tho Vicar remarked that he pre-iinncd
his name hnd been coimcctt.il with tho
report f i oni his having mentioned the
caso to Mr. John Thomas, n chemist of
Llanon. Ho said Mr. Pugh wns former,
ly a i esident of their pnrlsli, but w ns now
living iu tho parUh of Llaiiddcinol.
This medicine thry dmiuistercd to
me arenrding to the directions, when to
their surprise and delight no less than
my own, the spasm ceased. I became at
case, and my stomach was calmed, My
bowels weie movt'd as by n gentle
cathartic, and I felt n senso of quiet
com foil nil through such its I had not
before realized in many years. I could
walk around the housu and breathe
comfortably in n few hours after I had
taken the medicine, flnuo continued
to take the medicine daily now for
something over two months, and I can
lio down and sleep sweetly at nights'
nud have not since had n recurrence of
those terrible spasms nnd sweatings. I
have been so long broken down nnd re
duced lu my whole system that I have
not tried to perform any very hard out
door labor, deeming it best to be pru
dent lest by over-exertion I may do my.
self Injury before my strength is fully
restored. I feel that my stomach and
bowels have been and nro bolng thor
oughly renovated and renewed by tho
medicine. In fact I feel like a new
Early in this last spring I had n still
moro severo bpasmodic attnek, nnd my
family nnd neighbors becamo alarmed,
believing that certainly I would notsu

knowledge, or had heard of the medi
cine, sent to Abcrystwith, by tho driver
of tho Omnibus Post, somo seven miles
distant, and fetched u bottle of Mother
Sclgcl's Curative Byrup.
1 liuvo been much congratulated by
my neighbors, especially by tho good
Vicar of Llanrystyd, who with his sym
pathetic wife have come thrco miles to
shed tears of joy on my recovery.
I hade Mr. Pugh good-bye, happy that
even ono at least among thousands had
found a remedy for au aggravating dis.
About six ycais ngo I becamo so bad
that I could not sleep in bid, but had to
tako my unquiet rest nnd ilrcainj sleep
sitting in an armchair. My ntllictinn,
