Captain F. W. Macbeth, ot tho
on steamship Tiiupo, was in
terviewed on tho nrrivnl M Iiih
vessel ut Wellington,- Now Zea
land, and gave -tho following ac
count of his mooting with tho
Swnnhildn on which tho Austra
lian murderer, Frank Butlor, ib
endeavoring to cscapo:
"At the timo wo sighted the ship
I know very little about the mur
dors. The vessol showed hor
numbors but she was too far off
for mo to raako thorn out. I
altered my course so as to como
within rango and found she was
tho Swanhilda, bound from New
castle to San Francisco, and
wished to bo reported all well. As
soon as the vessel's nnmo was
made out tho second officer told
mo it was thn ship in which the
supposed murderor, Butler, had
shipped, and produced a news
paper containing particulars of
tho tragedies. I did not then
know that the murderer was sup
posed to have shipped under the
nnmo of Leo, the man he had
murdered. I wish I hail, as I
should have acted differently.
After what the second mate told
mo, I at once signalled 'Heave to,
I have important communication
to make.' My signal was ob
served, tho vessol was brought up
and I ran up close to her. I
then dispatched tho second officer
in a boat with a verbal message to
Cnptain Fraser, along with a file
of Auckland papers, containing
particulars of the tragedy. I gavo
explicit instructions that ho was
to make his communication pri
vately to Oaptain Fraser. Whon
my officer boarded the ship, he
and Captain Fraser retired to tho
hitter's cabin, where thoy talked.
No ono else was present. At tho
termination of tho intorviow Oap
tain Fraser sent mo his warmest
"None of tho orew in tho boat
with the second officer knew the
reason of the visit, and I gavo
special instructions that they wore
to remain in the boat in charge of
the boatswain while the second
officor boarded tho Swanhilda.
Several of tho men of that vessel
came aft while tho boat was along
side and wanted to know what wo
wanted. The answer was given
that I was moroly sending off a
few late papers to tho captain,as it
would bo a long timo bofore ho
got to San Francisco. The boat
swain says that one man who kept
well forward in tho ship soomed
to display considerable excitement
and spoko quickly to some of the
othors. He thon came aft and
looked ovor the side exclaiming:
'"What tho holl do yoa fellows
wapt? You must bo aftor some
thing ?' Tho boat's crow, however,
made tho same reply bb they baa
to tho othors. Tho boatswain do
scribed tho man as of stoutish
build with a heavy gingor-colored
In roply to tho question: "What
do you think Captain Fraaor would
do when ho got your communica
tion," Captain Macbeth said "If
ho is tho sensible man I tako him
to be Butler, or whatover his name
is, would havo been in irons in
a very few minutes after
my boat loft tho ship.. Haying
been placed on his guard as to the
character of tho man on board his
vessel, there would be no othor
course open to him. Ho was
bound to confine tho man in irons
at onco to protect himself, his
crew and his vessel. It seems to
mo there was no othor course
open to htm. I should not hesi
tate n minuto in such a case, al
though if it should turu out to bo
tho wrong man it would bo torm
ed a highhanded proceeding. If
I had known what I do now. I
should have gone aboard tho
Swanhilda mysolf and if Captain
Frosor hnd beon willing have
ho! pod arrest tho man oud taken
liini toAuoklnnd on my own vessel.
Of course, ther is no law for
such a procedure, but the end jub
tides the means and I think it
would havo beon done."
Those facts, coupled with tho
cabled report from Wellington
that tho boat's crow of tho Tnupo
had recognized a photograph of
Butlor as the man who caused tho
excitoment aboard thn Swanhilda,
ought to prove conclusively whero
tho man who is supposed to have
murdered Captain Woller and
young Preston now is.

Hook nt h ( rent Depth.
A raro find was made last week
by somo Japaneso fisharmen
whilo fishinc between Molokni
and Lauai. Thoy found one of
their hooks had caught a very
curious inhabitant of tho sea. Oil
pulling tho hook to thn surface
they found attached lo it a per
feet specimen of mnrino vegeta
tion which thoy had curiosity
onough to carefully preset vo nud
bring ashore. This little wondor
of the deep to unsciontifio eyes
is now in the possession of
Deputy Shoriff Sholdon of Laba
ina, who has it on view in his
office iu tho Government building,
and who has beou kiud enough lo
allow many prominent people to
view it. The curiosity is in fact
a marino tree, we might say. It
is 5 foot 2 inches high aud 1 ft. 2
in. in diameter with branches
complete and .coverod with long
needle- liko leaves. Tho base of
tho trunk is 4J inches in diumeter,
wood of a petrified appearanco,
and is well sot or rooted
in a block of ooral, of tho
nature of lava almost, forming n
vory pretty natural sotting. Sot
at intervals amongst the branches
Tho fact of tho abovo boing
fonnd in water botwoou 150 and
200 fathoms in depth would indi
cate that it is a rare sight on earth
and a curiosity Mr. Sheldon is
fortunato" in possessing, however
common they may be 200 fathoms
