Both Curtail) Dow of the bark
pntino Planter and his mato aro
well acquainted with Butler, tho
Australian murderer, aud espe
cially the mate, who frequently sat
at the sumo tnble with him at the
Sailor's Home iu Newcastle. In
deed, it is more than likoly that if
Butler had not been somewhat in
a hurry to get away he would
have shipped on tho Planter in
atoud of the Swauhilda.
Speukiugof the Australian mur
derer. Captain Dow said yesterday
to a Bulletin man: "Tho excite
ment both in Sydney and New
castle when I loft port was sim
ply intense. Everywhere , tho
murders wore almost the solo
topic of conversation. In New
castle after it became known that
Butler had been at tho Sailor's
Home thore for weeks and had
finally got off on the Swauhilda,
tho excitement woh intensified and
puoplo spoko and thought of no
thing else. 1 was particularly in
terested in tho murders from my
iutimato knowledge of their locali
ty. Some ton or twolvo
years ugo I tramped all through
the Blue Mountains on a pros
pecting tour and am familiar
with tho places where tho mur
ders wero done. I littlo thought
whon I took so much interest iu
the affair that I should actually
come in contact with tho murderer
himself about tho same time, but
as it turnB out I saw him fre
quently without knowing who he
was. Ho was or rather appoarod
to bo very much 'out at olbows'
at that time. His clothes wero
old, ragged and patched and ho
had a general listless, lazy and
good-for-nothing appearance. Ho
got his meals at tho Sailor's
Homp, where my mato mot him.
A casual acquaintance made at
table led to Butler frequently
coming on board tho Plauter.
Tho man seemed so utterly miser
able and povorly- stricken as to be
almost an object of pity. In fre
quent conversations ho told tho
mato much of his early history.
Said ho was the son of an English
gentleman and was brought up
for tho navy on the royal naval
training ship Worcester, but did
not liko the discipline and ran
uway aud shipped on a merchant
vessel. Sinco thou ho had been
kuockiug about tho world and
going from bad to worso. Ho
appeared to be well educated and
used good, language in talking, so
much so that tho mate told him
that ho. ought to bo aBhamed to
ship boforo the mast with his
education. Butler said it was not
always so,and producod the papers
and master's certificate ho had tak
en from tho body of Captain Leo
Wollor. Tho two mou had many
talks together until tho Swauhilda
Captain Dow and his mato
thought no moro of tho man until
the detective traced hira to New
castle and they then found out the
true inwardness of the man they
had casually become acquainted
with. On tho voyago up from
Nowcastlo Butler ana his crimes
havo furnishod thorn with a fruit
ful topic of conversation.
Changing tho subjoct Captain
Dow added: "How this oity is
changing. I havo been away only
nine months and yet whon I got
to tho wharf last Saturday there
was scarcely a familiar face to
groot mo; I used to pride mysolf
on knowing everybody in Hono
lulu and I honestly boliovo I did
a few years ago. But now every
thing IB changed, Thoro aro now
