Excited Mob Meets
The Walaiua Baby
Murderer At Train
PRISONER TALKS TO BULLETIN MAN
An excited crowd met the Walaiua
contossed child murderer, miserable
Frank Johnson, at the railway depot
4n this city last evening.
Tho presence of such a mob In man
1laics would !iae meant a quick JerlJ
to another plane of consciousness for
tho butcher, but the Honolulu mixed
crowd expressed illsgust and curiosity
to the exclusion of any desire for sum
mary punishment. '
Some Ave or six hundred men ami
boys gathered on the enclosed station
platform when the train from Walalun
arrived. There .were some women lu
the crowd. A few folks in ere on hand
to meet friends, with no thought of
the prisoner qboard, but tho great ma. .
jorlty were there to get a glimpse or,
tho face of tho confessed criminal
Tucro vtorc bloodthirsty remarks passed
mid a few Indefinite demands for sows
form of rapid and sultablo roward, but
these were, nothing beyond smoulder-,
Ing resentment and a huge general In
donation. There were no nttempts til
touch the prisoner or to interfere with
Ms pollco guards. Perhaps the most
nntlcablo Individual manifestation of
feeling was on the part of a woman who'
spat upon tho murderer as ha ww.
rushed to n waiting hack.
A nullctln reporter met tho Inrom-,
lug Walaiua train at Ewa and accont

Murderer Johnson was seated In the
smoking car with his back to the en
Klnc In a corner seat, looking out of
the mauka window. Facing him, the
hack of a seat between them. Bat Do
tcctlvo Chester Doyle, in charge of tli
prisoner. County Sheriff A. M. Hrowu
occupied tho same car and sat pair,
of tho time in tho forward portion, be
yond the partition separating the smok-
Ins compartment from the rest of tho
car and part of tho time, especially'
during tho latter part of the journey,
In the seat with Doyle, facing the pris
oner. Detective Lake was also In the
car. In charge of a boy from the re
form school, but also ready to lend
hand if necessary with tho murderer.
Two special pollco boarded the car nt,
Upon entering tho car at nwa the

him, and engaged him In a brief Inter-
Tho prisoner appeared as one too
stunned to think, his mind merely ait
Ing as n slot a for tho sifting of mo
mentary Impressions, and yet there was'
In his eyes at least the rcllectlnn of
tho hell he had made for hlmcelf. A
sort of dull remembered ogony sat on

had been something quite long ago that

the back of his left hand; his eyes gen

"I'm from a newspaper," said tho
reporter, quickly, "and you can trust
me to print Just what you want to say.
Is it true that you havo confessed?"
Detective Doylo was on his feet In
an instant, leaning over tho back of the
teat. He addressed tho prisoner In a
loud voice, drowning the repeated ques
tion of the reporter.
"1 warn you, Frank Johnson," said
Doyle, "that you are charged with
murder and that whatever you say may
bo used against you. You are not
obliged to ansner any questions put to
you by anybody. Do you understand;
Whatever you say may be used
The murderer nodded. "What's tha
liso of being put in a nowspaper," said
the prisoner to tho reporter, "I can't
read what's In a nowspaper. I can't
ead, I tell you." There was Just a llr
lie Impatience In the fellow's voice.
"Is It true that you huo confessed?"
"I don't know what you mean."
Again Doylo Interrupted with .1
warning that whatever tho prisoner
said might be used against him. Doylo
find resumed his seat for a few seconds
between the first and second warnings.
"Have you told the police that j.-u
Ulled Ilaby Wharton?"
"I told them FOinethlng."
"About the murder?"
"Yes, murder killing a child."
"They know what I told them."
"What did you tell them?"
"I can't say It again."
"Did you do it for revenge?"
"llecauso you wcro angry with some
"I wasn't angry. I don't know what

what to say. I think I won't. I'm not

"Uut, tell me, hato you confessed?"
