Tho first news of tho affair
reached Honolulu by tho last
Australia from San Francisco, to
which city a full description of
tho murderer was cabled by tho
AuBtraliun authorities. The polico
horo wero asked to keep a careful
watch for tho Swanhildo, should
slio by any chance happen to put
in nt this port, and immediately
arrest the suspected man in caso
sho did so. Tho Swanhilda has a
cargo of coal from Newcastle for
San Fraucisco, hut it was thought
slip might put in here. Tho
Miowora brought up two doteo
tivee, sent by the Crown Law De
partment of the New South
Wales government, who have
bi-on in conference with tho au
thorities bore during their stay,
and tho hitter are fully prepared
to act i. tlio Mw'Uihilda should

Miowora and from thence
go direct to San Francisco,
which pla-Hi they will reach at
least four or livo days befoio the
Swanhilda could possibly arrivo
there. Another detective has
alrotuly gone from Sydney to
London by the other routo to ob
tain the necessary authority from
the London Foreign Ollice for ox
troditing tho supposed murderer.
This man is expected to. be nbh
to also reach Hun Francisco soino
days in udvuu.v of the Swanhilda.
The usual pr,.'i.dure in cases of
extradition will bo followed, and
if tho alleged Li-o Weller proves

"Tho Monutaiu Mystery" in tho
title giveu to the stories told by
Australian papers of tho straugo
Uib.ippennnce ofBeveial men at
Uleubrook, New South Wales, a
mining district in tho 13!uo Moun
tains, ami the efforts now being
made to olucidato tho ray-tery of
their disappearance Tho an
nouncement that Captain Leo
Weller was missing brought out
tho information that a young
student of mineralogy named
Arthur T. O. Preston and auother
man who went to Gloubrook with
him ou a prospecting lour
duriug October had also dis
appeared. Portions of tho cloth
iug of Captain Wofior and Pros
ton wero found in nnd about an
abandoned mining shaft at Glen
brook, to which spot tho polico
havo traced tho men. Tho cloth-'
ing wus identified beyond ques
tion. Tho first public announcement
of the disappearance was made on
October 27th whou the govern
ment issued a proclamation ofTor
ing rewards amounting to 100,
tho reward dealing only with tho
mysterious disappearance of Capt.
Leo Wollor oud liar wood. Tho
notification states that Captain
LeoWoller on October 27, accom
panied by a man bearing tho
name of Frank llarwood, or H til
ler, loft Sydney for Glen brook for
tho ostensible purpose of prospect
iug.aud had not sinco boon heard
of. A roward of X25 will bo paid
for information leudiug to Leo
Weller being traced, or for tho
find iug of his remains if dead. A
further rewind of X25 will bo paid
for information leading to tho
tracing of the man llarwood. And
further, if u minder has been com
injlt.il, an additional i.tivunl of
t.'.D vtill l.c paid for iuloiitiui on
leading to tho conviction of tiro
guilty person or persons. Tho
reward will remain in forco three
Tho following aro tho descrip
tions of Loo Weller and llarwood
n published in the "Gazetlo-."
Leo Weller: About forty years
of age, 5 It. (i or 7 in. high, stout
build, dark complexion, dark
curly hair cut short, dark beard,
whiskers and mu-dnrhi- cut short,
beard pointed, good appearance,
d t esses well,r.n Wiiyli9hman,a mas
llarwood: About 10 yeard of
age, 5 ft. 9 or 10 in. high, stout
build, muscular appearance, dark
hair slightly tinged "with groy,
doik-brown mustache, and small
6ido whiskers, peculiar nose Hat
on bridge, large oil point and turn
ed to loft side as if it had been
broken, rathor high shoulders;
dresses well; au Englishman.
Later developments seem to
provo beyond much doubt that
Weller was murdered by llarwood,
and that tho latter followed up the
first crimo by murdering Preston
and tho other man, portions of
whoso clothing were first found at
Glen brook nud moro afterwards
at Linden, a station twolvo miles
nway. Harwood or Butler, as
tho murderor is known, was seen
in Sjdney ou October 31st by
tho station master, who roincm
bared selling him and Captain
Weller tickets to Gleubrook some
After days and days of thor
ough aiuT systematic searching b'
tho polico of tho gullieH and
lagoons in tho neighborhood of
Gleubrook and Lindeu tho body
of young Preston was found on
December 3d at tho bottom of a
very narrow gully, wdioro ho hod
been working with pick and
shovel. The gully was so narrow
that it formed a ready madegravo
into which tho victim fell without
Ti struggle. Tho body was fear
fully crushed by tho surrounding
rocks which had beou piled on it
by tho murderer.
Tho oxcitemont over tho dis
covery of Preston's body was
rendered still moro intense on tho
following day by tho finding of
tho remains of Captain Leo Wel
ler in a holo in Glonbrook creek
used as a bathing place, and in
ninny respects a spot similar to
thi.t whore Preston wns found.
Tho iiujuests on tho two bodies
occupied s-everal days, but a ver
dict was reached in both of wilful
murder and Ilutior or llarwood
was in each case accused of tho
crime, tho ovidenco showing con
clusively that ho was the last per
son seen with tho murdored men.
Tho victims were shot from bo
hind and apparently tumbled for
waul into their giaves without a
struggle, as both bodies wero
found faco down and in n cramp
ed position, the arms and legs
being drawn up closo to the
It is supposed that those nro
only two of a series of many
rnurdois committed by this man
The Melbourne Argus says tho
ovidonce so far collected points to
the oxistonco of a monster who has
mado it his business tooutico men
with him into the dark ruvruos
and gloomy gorges of tho Blue
Mouutaius that ho might murder
them nt convenience and appro
priato whatever mouey or valu
ables thoy possessed. His plans
seonr to havo beou executed in au
atrociously systematic fashion.
Advertisements in the Sydney
prosa for a prospecting coiup-i
nion enabled victims to bo select
ed singly. Endeavors woro no
doubt made to onsuro that some
booty, nt any rate, should roward
tho projected crimo. Captain
Leo Weller io said to have taken
with him on the expedition his
quartorly remittance, besides a
quantity of jowolery. Preston,
tho young student, roeoived an
allowance monthly from his father
in Brisbane, but is supposed to
havo had only $50 in bank notes
on his person when killed.
After committing tho niuidois
1 littler is supposed to have ro
turned to Sydin'y und from
Ihenco niado his way to New
I'lintle. On tho 19th of November
h shipped on tin bark !wiin
hil in a it li-r tho uamo of, Cnpum
Loe Wellor. At the ttnro of ship
ping ho had a quantity of cloth
ing marked "Leo Weller." Tho
following is a copy of the license
the man prosouted nt tbo local
shipping ollice: "LiceriFo to ship.
1 hereby certify that Lee Wel
ler has a licenso to ship, regni
tered at the Shipping Oflico, Syd
ney, thii 19th day of November,
18915. Signed, John Eilyo, Ship
ping Master." Mr. lloolh, of the
Sailors' Homo' .positively stale
(hat thu photo, of Lee WellerV
supposed mate, shown him, rep
resented the man who Mopped at
his placo under the uamo "Leo
Weller." Tho Swanhilda did
not get away until the 21th, but
thciro is no possible doubt
that Butler wns on b'mr.l.
as Mr. Booth, son id tliesuoenn
toudent of tho Sailors' llouiu, and
a boatman named Payne, remain
ed on board the vessel with the
supposed Leo Weller until au
hour previous to the timo she
sailed. A boardinghouso keeper
named Wafer, who had under
taken to fiud a crew for tho Swau
hilda, remained ou board till the
Inst, and tho man was then ou
board. Tho caplaiu sent a return
of the hands fiBhore, upon which
return advance notes wero paid.

On tho Miowera yesterday, in

porter concerning the murder, de
tectives Curly nnd Conroy of the
Sydney police said they have no
doubt whatever that the man they
woro aftei was on the Swanhilda
