THE CHIEF WITNESS.
John Richmond, sworn Live at
Ilonokaa, am stable man for Mr.
Ovcrcnd; was there in Oclobor,l:now
these defendants ; my house is right
to the west of the stable3 : stables
arc 000 or 100 feet from Overend's
house ; on the night of Oct. 28 Steele
came to mo some time after I was in
bed, and woke me up, and asked
nic to go to the Japanese quarters
and watch for Japanese on a white
horse, and let him know where he
went; I was to carry the information
to the schoolhouse. (Witness points
out houses, loads, etc., on the map.
Points out location of a woodpile
where lie watched at Japanese quar
ters for the Japanese (Goto) to
come out;) do not know what time
of the evening it was ; I had been
asleep, Steele woke nic up, nobody
was with him; was not watching
very long for the Japanese, prob
ably in the neighborhood of half an
hour; did not personally know the
man for whom 1 was watching ; I
saw the Japanese come out and ot
on his horse, and he started cast on
the lower road to go up towards the
big Japanese quarters, and then I
went to the Government road and to
the schoolhouse; met Steele there;
I went on foot, walked as fast as I
could go up the hill, took me prob
ably ten minutes; I told him that
the Jap had started and had gone
towards the big Japanese quarters ;
1 supposed the Jap was cowing and
J told Steele I believed I would go
home, and he said, "No, you will
stay here,I may need you ;'' as soon
as 1 saw the Jap mount his hor3e 1
went to the place; I stayed with
Steele when he told me he might
want me ; went up to the cemetery
toucc and he left me standing there;
told mc to stay there till he called for
nic ; I sat down and kind of lay there,
the grass is sK or eight inches high
tlicre ; sat down a very few minutes,
s.iw the Japanese coming upon horse
back ; the horse was walking up the
lull, not fast, about as fast as a horse
can pull up a hill ; I was at the
west side of the road, he was near
the west side, the side that the
schoolhouse is on, towards Kukuiha
cle ; saw a man named Lala, and
Hlabon and Steele rush' out to the
horse ; Lala grabbed the horse by
the bridle, and Steelo and Blabon
pulled the man off the horse. Steele
grabbed the man by the head and
the mouth, and Blabon by the body,
and they jerked him off right to the
ground ; the Japanese did not come
down standing, he came down kind
of on his knees ; he was then taken
into that open lot right inside of the
e jinetcry fence and laid on his face
there ; could not tell how long he
would be lying there, it was but a
few minutes; afterward he was
hung ; it was all done, from the pull
ing off to the hanging, iii3ido of
an hour; Steele, Blabon, Watson,
and Mills carried the man up to the
Government road running cast and
west ; after they carried him in the
first place, they laid him on his face,
and Steele tied his hands behind his
back, then Steele and Blabon tied
his feet, he was lying on his face
vet, when they first pulled the Jap
off his horse I heard him say, "Pan,
pau," that is all I ever heard the
nun speak ; did not hear 11113 n,oro
inisc out of him, was close enough
to hear him ; did not hear n groan.
After the' tied his hands and feet he
wai carried up to the Government
road, the maukii road running
through Ilonokaa; he was carried
to the makai side of the road and
left right alongside of that trail, in
the grass, not more than a couple of
hundred feet from the tclephone.polc
where he was hung; Mr. Mills re
quested mc to go to the telephone
pole and get the rope for him ; I did
so and brought it buck to where the
body was lying ; it was a new rope,
probably three-quarters of an inch
thick ; I found it at the foot of the
telephone pole ; it was coiled up ;
it had a noose made at the cud of it,
said to be a regular hangman's
knot; the other end was unwove,
and one of the strands was cut oil'
(witness identifies the rope shown) ;
l gave the rope to Watson. The
bo;Iy was taken up ; somebody said
ihcre, "My God, 1 believe the man
is dead," or "The Jap is dead,"
and I stooped down and put 1113
hand on his breast and I could not
feel a movement, or pulse, or any
thing of that kind, aud then we
picked him up and carried him over
to the telephone pole; I help
ed to carry him there; Blabon,
Watson, Mills and mynelf carried
him over there; not Mr. Watson,
Mr. Steele; Watson had the rope,
ho walked over; could not feel any
movement on the part of tlio Jup,uuy
trUHKllilgorAnyluli)g clsc the rope
was ca3t over the cros arm, and
Mills raised the body up. That is
the rope Mills sent mc for, aud that
was found at the foot of the tele
phone pole; that is where some
body said, "My God, tho man is
dead ;" Mills, and Steele, and Bla
bon, and I carried the body over to
the telephone pole; Watson carried
the rope and walked over; Mills
threw the rone over the telephone
pole bar, and all live of us pulled
him up; Mills put the noose round
the Jap's neck ; Lala took the Jap's
horse over to the Lyceum and tied
him lo a hitching rack there;
Steele's horse was tied to a gate
post nearer the toad ; the Jap's feet
were probably seven or eight feet
from the ground ; the oilier end of
the rope was fastened to the foot of
the telephone pole; during those
proceedings Mills made a remark
that lie would ask the Jap some ques
tions, and when he was told he was
dead, Mills said, "Well, he'll sell
no more goods." Steele caught the
Jap by the chin, witli his hand over
the mouth, and back of the head
(this way), and Blabon caught him
about the body, when they first
seized him on the horse; the Jap
was a slim-built man ; Steele was on
same side 01 road as I was; he
reached Iiiin easily when he was
leaning over; we stayed round a
few minutes and Mills told me we
were to say nothing about it; I had
the Jap round the feet when we car
ried him. (Witness identifies pants,
sa3'8 the shirt was something like
that shown, docs not know how lie
was shod,) Mills had on a cap with
two peaks, and a cloak (that's the
cap and that's the cloak); had
known Mills eighteen months, Steele
and Watson ever since 1 had been
on Overend's plantation, knew Bla
bon some time; nobody called Lala
before he took hold of the horse ;
after the hanging Mills spoke lo
Lala in native, when lie took the
Jap's horse and Steele's horse away ;
nobody else than Mills told me to
say nothing, all assented to tuc cau
tion; 1 came home and went to
bed ; it is about 25 feet between my
room and the stables ; I fell asleep
and was woke up, I don't know
what time, by hearing people talk
ing ; looked out and saw Steele and
Watson talking; could not hear
what they wcrcsaying ; it was ten
minutes past eight when I was first
called up and told to come along.
(Witue&s describes his work, taking
care of horses, etc.) The horses
were groomed that evening; they
had saddle marks on them in the
morning, Mr. Overend's black horse
Sultan and Steele's; that would
show that they were used the previ
Cross-examined by Mr. Davidson
Have been on plantation 1.1
mouths; usually finished work at
half-past seven; supper at half-past
five, eat nothing later, generally go
to bed a little after eight ; had no
conversation with .Steele that da1
about anything unusual to be done
that night ; Steele woke mc by reach
ing in through the V.ndow and
touching mc ; he told mc he wanted
me to go out and watch for a Japa
nese riding n while horse ; I was
there to obey orders, generally obey
orders. Q. Even to assist in hang
ing n nian? A. Yes, I did nssist in
hanging him. I did not testify in
previous examination that it was
eight o'clock, or that it was before
ten ; I didn't know Goto, was never
in his store ; as soon as I saw which
way the Jap went I started for the
schoolhouse; am quite positive I
didn't say on previous cross-examination
that Steele gave me the des
cription of the Jap's horse ; had no
light when I was wakened, dressed
myself inthcdaik; when I readied
schoolhouse and told Steele the Jap
had started, I said I giiesiedl would
go home, but Steele said, "No, I
may want you." Saw Steele first,
then the Jap coming, then Mills and
Watson aud Blabon rushing out;
Lala seized the horse by the bridle ;
Steele and Blabon took the Jap off
the horse, he fell off the horse on
his knees ; he was taken into the lot ;
Mills and Watson came up at the
time and helped to carry him in,and
lay him on his face on the grass;
they called mc in and I saw Steele
tying his hands behind his back ; it
was then that Mills spoke to Lala in
native; Mills, Watson, Steele and
Blabon carried the Jap to the Gov
ernment road ; Mills ordered mc lo
go to the telephone pole to get the
rope; don't remember having said
before that Mills gave the order to
Lala when the Jap was laid down
the second time ; if I said so it would
have been false ; it was at the Gov
ernment road that Mills gave mc the
order to get the rope ; I did not act
willingly, I, obeyed orders; Mills
had charge of that affair, and I was
in his employ for the occasion ; was
not promised any pay, acted under
fear and intimidation ; had not seen
any guns or pistols; Mills said I was
as deep in the affair as any of them ;
I did not swear at the preliminary
examination that Mills put the rope
round the Jap's neck when the Jap
was laid down; if 'I said so it would
have been false; the rope was put
round his neck by Mills, at the tele
phone pole ; the last word I heard
from the Jap was "pau" when ho
was seized on horseback; Watson
threw the rope over the arm of the
pole ; I said at former examination
that the rope was put round the
Jap's neck before the end was
thrown over the arm ; you and Mr.
Hitchcock put the quostions to mc
in that way and I answered llicm;
you asked me if tho rope was put
round the Jap's neck at the pole,
aud then how the cud of the rope
wno pul over tho tuln 1 thcto Waa no
aoiltid fioin the Jnp when lie was
hung ; did not say positively before
that it was half-past one o'clock
when I got home, 1 said it was in
the neighborhood of between 1 and
2 o'clock; J did not say I went
"right to sleep," I sold 1 went to
sleep ; Watson ami Steele were talk
ing in ordinary tones, not whispers;
I feel asleep again and woke up at
it o'clock, always rise then nt Over
end's, am wi-kcncd by an alarm
clock; met a Portuguese boy in the
morning, who tolfl me a Japanese
was make ; saw the body hanging in
the same position; went over to
Mills' store, whcie I saw Mills,
Blabon, and Tommy Hart; I told
Mills there was a Japanese hung up
there, he said it was an efllgy ; this
was between 0 and 7 o'clock in the
morning; in reply to Mills' remark
1 said, "It may be, sir, but I think
it looks like a Jap." I did not
communicate the mailer to olllcers
of the law, or talk with defendants
or Lala; 1 was examined by Sheriff
Hitchcock before 1 was arrested;
was arrosted 10 or 18 days after the
event; have been under guard ever
since; at first interview I made no
statement accusing these defendants;
second interview was in the Sheriff's
ollicc in tliis building; then made
statement of same substance as
made to-day; Lala was under arrest
and brought here before I came ;
have for a week past been in same
room with Lala, previously had been
allowed no communication with him ;
first saw Blabon in May, 1888, at
Horner's plantation ; have never
made any throats against Steele,
Blabon, and Mills; never said to
Mr. Miller (before the homicide)
that Mills was a damned Irish son
of a bitch ; didn't say I would rather
trade with the American Jew than
with Mills; dindn't say I would get
even with Mills ; know Geo. Hardy of
Ilonokaa; I was convicted in Ilono
kaa of the larceny of a watch, was
sentenced to J0 days impiisoninent ;
served my time under restraint;
don't recollect talking with George
Hardy about my conviction.
Mr. Neumann objects on the
ground that the larceny has nothing
to do with this case.
Q. Do you recollect saying lo
Hardy that you would get even with
Steele, Blabon, and Mills using an
expletive the worst that could lie
applied to any man for their part
in securing your conviction. A.
No, sir ; Steelo did not give evidence
against 1110. Have been in islands
since 1S77 ; am a native of the State
of Ohio, my age is 51 ; the principal
part of my life has been spent in
my native place ; have been at sea
in" bark Forest Queen; enlisted on
the U. S. S. Adams at Honolulu in
18S7, made a voyage in her to Sa
moa, was blacksmith on her ; enlisted
for remainder of cruise, which
would end in November, I left in
March, 1888. (Mr. Neumann ob
jects and the Court gives witness
privilege of not making any answers
that would criminate himself). The
witness declines to answer a ques
tion as to whether he had descried
from the Adams. Have been in the
jail the past month, have not been a
luna on the road, have been a watch
man on the Volcano road under Mr.
Staples, was promised i'oO a month,
have not seen any salary yet, en
gagement terminated on the Gtli of
March, never have been out of jail
since unless there uasauolllccr with
me, have roomed with Lala since the
last Kinau, could not converse with
him because he docs not under
stand English. (Witness shows on
map where he sat when Steele went
into the lot.) 1 did not give notice
when I saw the Jap coming; Steele
and Blabon aud Lala 1 said came
out together, the order was Lala,
Steele, and Blabon together, and
Mills and Watson together; it was
at the Government road that the re
mark was made, "My God, the man
is dead;" there was no particular
violence used on the Jap in taking
him off his horse, except that he
was in the grasp of two strong men ;
saw no blow struck.
Mr. Davidson desires a few min
utes' consultation with his colleague,
aud the Court takes five minutes'
Witness It took mc about 10
minutes to walk home from scene of
hanging ; did not say formerly that
it took mc 15 or 20 minutes ; have
no idea how long it look me to go to
sleep, it would not he over half an
hour; could not say how long a imp
I had before I wakened. When the
four defendants carried the bod', 1
did not escape becauso Steele had
ordered me to stay ; I was the llrsi
to leave the pole, left tho four de
fendants there; didn't notice that
the Jap's clothes were torn or soiled
as if the result of struggle; have
never testified that Mills raised the
Jap's head, at the place where he
was laid down near the Government
road, and put the noose round his
Be-direct (to Mr. Neumann) Q.
In answer to Mr. Davidson you
said you were standing tlicre all the
time, whereas you testified before
that you weie sitting on a little
knoll. What explanation can you
Hive of these different statements?
A. 1 must have misunderstood his
question, as I was Hitting there us
stated. Have never had any trou
ble with any of defendants ; when
on the Volcano road 1 was under
bonds of S3000 to appear ns a wit
ness ; M Staples was under orders
to not let ma get away. 1 did not
look ut a watch the night of the
murder; Steelo told me from his
watch, at the schoolhouse, that it
was 20 minutes to twelve. To Juror
Sherman I didn't know, when sent
up lo watch lliu Jnp, what It meant,.
Hc-uross'cxamlnation by Mr.
Davidson I thought when sent for
the rope that it meant the hang
ing of the Jap ; Watson and Blabon
were witnesfes against me for lnr
ccny ; I have no feeling against them
because they did not say nuythii'
to harm me. To Jurror IIcycHiunnn
It was after tho rope was brought
that someono said, "My God, the
Jap Is dead." To Jurror Sherman
I never heard a sound f.'om the Jap
after Steele caught his head be
tween his two lianils ; Steele hung on
to him till he was down on his knees.
To Mr. Davidson That was all of a
minute, from the time they took
hold of him lill they pulled him to
the ground ; it was when on his
knees that the men picked him up.
At 12:15 the Court look recess

Lala, sworn: I live in Hamakua,
at Kamoeli ; was at Ilonokaa last

Mills told mc to go to the billiard
room, that there would be a theatre
there that night, and when the Chi

saw three men there Edward
(Capt. Brick wood), Joe Mills, and
Bill Bickard; stayed there a while
and went to my house ; saw two
women there ; got ready to go to
sleep, don't know what time it was,
it was after dark ; took clothes off,
lighted my lamp, and went lo bed ;
in 1113' sleep heard someone knocking
at door and calling "Lala, Lala,
Lata!" looked out and saw a man;
put a counterpane over 1113' head
and shoulders and went out, man
said, "Come out here, Joe Mills
wants you ;" it was Joe Mills' driver
(identifies Blabon as the man ;)
went out with him and saw a white
man by side of Joe Mills' store; the
man with the while horse was Over
end's luna (identifies Steele) ; this
man spoke to that other man ; he
had a gun in Ids hand. (Steele,
Watson, and Blabon smile broadly
at the witness's description of rela
tive positions of Steele and Blabon.)
Steele had a rope on the saddle, a
new Manilla rope; he rode away
towaids Hilo, ami we two followed
him ; we went along till we got to
schoolhouse fence ; went to school
house not by tho road; heard a
whistle and jumped over a fence
alongside gravc3'ard ; saw Overend's
overseer, Overend's driver (identi
fies Watson), and one man whose
name I did not know; he had a hat that
concealed his face, and a long cloak
on him ; it was a cap witli two pieces
coming down back and front, and
pieces coming down over the cars ;
couldn't distinguish his C3'cs or his
nose plain, the way the cap came
down. (Witness shown cloak.)
That is about length of it; (shown
hat) yes, a hat like that. When I
got there I found these men silting
down outside the grave3'ard, they
were talking to themselves ; the man
1 did not recognize told me lo go
ahead and hold the Japanese's
horse ; when he spoke to me I first
recognized that it was Jos. Mills;
then we alt went close to the road
and saw the Japanese coming, he
was on a while horse ; we all sat
down and when horse was Hearing
we all jumped up on the road; I
jumped in front ot the horse and
held him ; two white men Over

Japanese saug out, "No, no!" aud
fell down ; these men all jumped 011
Japanese, Overend's overseer held

give a groan; after that Joe Mills
called mc and told me to take Jap
anese's horse and overseer's horse
to Lyceum yard and leave them
there aud listen to what he said ;
when Mills told mc tliis the Japan
ese was there where these men were
standing ; Japanese was not doing
anything, his hands were lied up,
lie was lying on his face on the
ground, his hands were lied behind
him ; when Mills told me to get
horses I first got Overend's over
seer's ; 1 brought the horse to where
Japanese's horso were statiding,
and got on Japanese's horse and
rode to Lyceum yard ; when I got
to yard I looked back and saw tho
men makai of the Government road ;
they were further niauka than tho
place where I left them ; loft Jap
anese's horse on Koliala side of
yard, hitched the horse by putting
the reins over a hitching post; left
the overseer's horse inside the Ly
ceum gate, by putting reins over
the gate ; after fastening the Jap
anese's horse I made for the cane
field and didn't sec the men after
wards; ran through the caue-flcld
to the slaughter house, from field
got into a road used for hauling
wood ; stopped to listen and not
hearing anybody coming I went to
the slaughter house, got into 1113'
room and blew out tho light, was
frightened and sat up till the cock
crowed ; saw tho Japanese next day

give mi! credit for goods, but his
clerk sometimes did for small
things; I brought money back
Thursday and gave it to Mrs. Mills;
when I received the money there
was another man in Ids ollicc ; saw
Mills the afternoon I returned tho
