llllo, Hawaii, Jan. 28. Unless nil
bIrhs bo for naught, n most brutal
murder was committed In this Coun
ty of Hawaii on the night of Satin -day,
llth Inst, and up to tho piei
ent not tho Hllgutcit attempt hits
been made towards arresting tho per
ron or persons connected with the
It ma) bo r.i Id In tho outset that
Sheriff Keolanul Is In no sense to
blame for this. Inasmuch as by lata
enquiries, he had never recolved any
icport of the crime.
A Japanese, well Known to trav
elers, Kept tho lmlf-wny houso be
tween tho Volcano and l'uhaln. Ho
was known as "Weila" or "Uliln," On
Snturdav, llth Inst, he went tip I"
Wood valley and It Is understood
Hint he was drinking thcro to a. con
siderable extent. Ho left the .Tap.in
pso camp ott horseback and that Is
all that Is known of hint until the
morning of Sunday, tho 12th.
'A Japanese, woman was passing
along the road on Sunday morning
and saw, as she thought, n drunken
man lying In the utno near tho road.
She reported this mid somo men who
went out to help the man found that
he was dead Ho had been badly
battered about the head.
It then transpired that his horse,
had been found wandering about tho
caneflekls. Thcro was nothing about
tho nnlmnl, Baddlc, or bridle to Indi
cate that tho unfortunate man had
been thrown. When the body was
found rigor mortis had not set In.
Tho Immediate cause of death was an
ugly wound In tho skull.
Deputy Sheriff Kcknttla wus notl
Ted, but ho did not put In an ap
pearance until 3 o'clock on Monday
afternoon. Ho wished to deputize,
the local policeman to net as coroner
but Dr. A. Schwallle of I'nhnla,
who had been called to examine tho
body, Insisted upon tho attendance,
of tho deputy sheriff.
It is stated the police rather re
garded a verdict of accidental death
as tho proper sort of a finding, but
Dr. Schwalllo went thoroughly Into
the facts with the result that a vcr
(".let was finally returned bringing
the charge of. murder against "some
person or persons unknown."
Thus the case rests. Nothing Is
