Editor Gill Uses Revolver
AFJEB HE HAD BEEN
'; STRUCK FULL IN FACE
Stevens Sent to Queen's Hospital
Case Not Dangerous Gill Gives
Himself Up at Police
At a little after 9 o'clock last night,
E. S. Oil), editor of the Honolulu Re
publican, shot Mortimer I. Stevens, ono
of the new men on the reportorlal staff
of the Advertiser In the editorial room?
of the former1 newspaper. Immediate
IvTtfter the occurrence, the wounded
man wag removed to the Queen's hos
pital In a hack. Mr. Gill went to the
police station, gave himself up and
was placed in a cell to await the ar
rival of High Sheriff Drown, Dall in
the sum of $1000 was required. A check
for this amount was made out by Man
ager Johnson of the Robert Grieve
Publishing Co. nnd Mr. GUI was re
leased from custody.
Dr. Wayson, tho private physician
summoned by Mr. Stevens, found that
tho bullet had entered Just a little
above the left hip. It was probed for
but could not be found. Dr. Wayson
stated to a Dullctln reporter this morn
ing that the bullet was not In a danger
ous position and that no harm would
bo done by leaving It where It Is. Ho
stated further that his patient was do
ing very well and that ho would be
about again In a week or so.
In the Police Court this forenoon, Mr.
Gill nppearcd before Judge Wllrox
with F. W. Hankey as his attorney.
Utah Slwrlff Ilrown. made, n "general
charge of assault and battery with a
weapon obviously and Imminently dan
gerous to life and asked that the case
go over until Monday. There being no
objection on the part of the defense, tho
caso went over to tho time mentioned.
The shooting of Stevens grew out of
nn editorial nnd a story in the Repub
lican referred to In yesterday's Bulletin
which caused a cousin of one of the
young ladles concerned to call on Mr.
GUI at his oincc In tho morning.
According to Mr. Stevens' statement,
published by the Advertiser, he went to
tho Republican ofllco to try to prevent
further reference to the story which
appeared In tho morning. Ilelng the
life long friend of one of the oung
ladles, he considered it incumbent upon
him to net.
At all events, Mr. Stevens and Mr.
Gill had some argument about th mit
ter. Then Stevens struck GUI in tho
fnce. The editor aroso quickly, put
n chair between himself and his assail
nnt, grabbed a 3S-callbre revolver and
shot at Stevens with the result m ul
ready given above.
Witnesses say that Stevens when ho
entered the room, was very angry nnd
that, before properly announcing hl3
business, he began a tirade against Mr.
GUI who sat at his desk until the lan
guage became such that some words
were necessary to call the young man
to his senses.
Just as Mr. GUI was starling to rise
from his seat, Stevens dealt him a
savage blow in the face and he Immedi
ately took measures to defend himself.
