Tho only details of tho arrest

extra of The Evoning Post, pub
lished just beforo the Gaelio Bailed
and thoy are given bolow:
The Swanhilda was sighted at
about 5 o'clock this morning by
the Merchants' Exchange lookout
and tho news was at onco telo-
' graphed to this city.
The police force at the seawall

Tho officers boarded the vossol
according to tho arranged pro

Butler was aboard.
He was soon Dlaced under ar

When tho Government vessel
reached tho Swanhilda Officer For;
gusou was tho first to board it.
Then followed Sergeant Bunuer
and tho other officers.
Captain Frazur was called aside
and told of the character of the
man he had uboard. Frazer said
he was aware of it. Himsolf and
tho first mate knew that tho mur
derer was aboard. They had been
told by a pulsing sjiip. '
Tho crew of the Swanhilda was I
then lined up on tho deck, and
liutlor, who was second in tho
row, was identified by tho Austra-1
linn constable, Conroy, quietly, of i
Detectives Silvoy and Egan sly

agreed signal caught his arms.

murderer that Justice had trailed

Ho was taken to the cabin aad
questioned, but refused to talk.
He was asked if he kuow a cer

replied with a sneer and nn oath,
"Oh! I know lots of people."
Ho was cool and "nervy," He

on the voyage, so tho detectives,
At tho City Prison Butlor gavo
his name as Eagan.
Damaging ovidonco was found
in his possession. In his trunk
was! a portrait of Mrs. Wollor,
wife of the murdered Captain.
On January 27 another Aus
tralian detective arrived in San
Francisco, with the noeossary ap-
i plication from tho British Gov-
, nrnmont tnr
I rrjhis man was Johu Roche, who
; j,H9 j,een connected with the
Svdnov Detective Offico for tho
. . r .
ast fifteen yoars and is reput.n to
bo one of tho best known deteo-
lives in Australia. Ho was tho
ohief in tho senrch for Butlor in
the colonips. It was principally
through His efforts that sovoral
mysterious murders woro traced
to a common source; that a photo
graph was obtained of tho sus
pected but littlo known man
whom, it .was fiunlly learned, had
shipped from NtUvcastlo, N. 8. W.,
on November 23 in ,yi Swanhilda
bound for San Francisco.
He came to San Fraucisco di
rect from Washington. He Was
agreeably surprised to find Deteo

According to llocho uino or ten
murders are now attributed to
Butler, and there aro possibilities
of others boiug discovered. Ab a

It was afterward that his vil

polico, and little by littlo his
monstrous character has boon ex

and what are his connections, aro
yet unknown. Even his right

Those aro days of considerable
anxiety and perplexity to all who
havo possessions or other interests
in the Bepublio of Hawaii, and it
is time that our citizens came to a
mutual understanding on several
important issues. The prospects
for Annexation appear at prosont
vague and indistinct, and our
destiny cannot bo foretold with
certainty. Thoro are those, nlso,
who still fondly cling to tho hope
of a return to tho old ordor of
thiugs, and who cannot be por
suadod otherwise, yet this out
look appears far moro hazy than
that of Annexation ovou to tho
most hopeful disciples of tho
Monarchy. But, fortunately, in
tho midst of all this uncertainty
