UIS NAME JAMES BROWN
NEGROES THREATEN LYNCHING
Brown Was Mcmher 'of Royal Ha
waiian BandMarried a Negress
Killed Her Fourteen
Year Old Daughter.
W. J. Coelho received by last pre
vlous mall a clipping fiom a recent
Kansas City, Mo., paper containing
tho account of a fearful crime commit
ted by James Brown, who went to.the
United States with the Hoyal Hawa
llan Hand In 1893. That was the musi
cal corns" formed of men who had re
fused to take the oath of allegiance to
the Provisional Government andlicnco
were dismissed from the Government
band. The account of llrown s crime
rends as follows:
James Brown, a member of n former
Hawaiian band, killed his Btcpdauglr
ter, Lama Hlblar, In Independence yes'
tenlay. Uecauso of Tear ot mon vio
lence, he was brought here yesterday
evening, and placed In Jail. On the
way here, nnd again after he was In
confinement, Brown made a full con
fession of the deed. The last one was
to Assistant Prosecutor George Kelly,
who took the statement down In writ
ing. This will be used against Brown
when he comes to trial.
Brown was brought here last night
by Deputy I,um Wilson and two other
deputies. They got him out of Jail by
strategy. A considerable mob of ne
groes was about the Independence bas
tile, and they drove up In a buggy,
which they left In the rear. The mob
gathered about this, awaiting their
exit, but they sllppedd out the front
door an dsplrlted their mnu away to a
On the way up to Kansas City,
Brown, who was still under the In
fluence of liquor told why he did the
murder. He was awakened by the girl,
while ho was In a drunken sleep on the
floor. They had words, and sho called
him a vile name, he says. This he
"couldn't take." Then he struck her
over the head with a club. Her right
ear was cut In two by the force of the
blow, and her skull was ciushed. The
weapon was a club resembling a pick
et from a fence, but was about two
Inches square. It was found beside
the body. Brown was still somewhat
Intoxicated Inst night and this morn
ing, when he made his statement to
the assistant prosecutor. Ills answers
to questions were slow, nnd ho seemed
stupid. I.lttle beyond these facts was
elicited from htm.
Laura Hlblar, the murdered girl, was
14 years old. She was found dead In
her bed yesterday about noon by some
school mates. There was a wound on
the right side of her head from which
blood was flowing and her car was
slightly cut. Tho police were at once
notified, they suspected Samuel some
times known as James Brown, tho
stepfather of the girl, as the murderer.
The colored pcoplo who reside In tho
Hlblar neighborhood near the colored
school house, Joined In the search and
soon had the suspected man traced to
tho rcsidonco of William Green, on
East Maple avenue. There Officers
Hulse and Parker found Brown sur
rounded by several negroes and he
