JUDGE KINGSBURY APPOINTED TO DEFENSE
The first steps towards the trial of
Frank Johnson, who committed tho
atrocious murder on little Simeon
Wharton at Waialua, was taken this
morning when ho was arraigned be
fore Judge Lindsay.
Johnson's appearance did far from
Htrlko one as that of a human mons
ter. Ho was very quiet and looked
timorously about at tbo strango sur
roundings. When the court announced
his case, Johnson started to his feet.
j!o was then directed to scat himself
noxt to Deputy Attorney Oeneral
Fleming, who-aprearcd for the prose
cution. Fleming gave Johnson a copy of the
Indictment, but he did not know what
to do with It and held It In his band
straight before him without oponlng
It. When Fleming started to read the
Indictment all Johnson's Interest was
centered on tho prosecuting officer.
As Fleming read aloud the erucsome
details of the murder, as set forth at I
length in tho Indictment, tho murder
er's furtive eyes wandered restlessly
from his face to the paper from which
he was reading, and back, Johnson
was evidently frightened and nervous,
and to a groat extent seemed at a loss
ns to what nil these proceedings

"Frank Johnson, havo you a law
yer?" asked Judge Lindsay when tho
reading was nnlshcd.
"No, sir," said Johnson.
"Havo you any money with which to
retain a lawyer!"

nothing remarkable In the fact that Aro wo conforming to tho law In or
there Is Indeed a secret service man In ranging with the Molokans as we nave
these Islands. Each department of the
United States government has Its de
tail of secret service men and these
men are not In tho habit of announcing
their presence under any circum
stances. Sometimes it happens that an
Individual, working with a member of
the secret service, will travel around
giving It out that he hlimelf Is tho sec
ret service man, detracting attention,
while tho genuine article, unsuspected,
goes about his business and accom
plishes his mission

service has brought some to tho con
