WEIRD NIGHTMARE MURDER
.li OMEGA OF CAROUSE
Sleeping Man Shoots Sleeping Comrade, While
Others Snore Beside ThemTry in
Vain to Awaken Dead.
A tale of tho "wino bums" and dago
red hallucinations was uncovered yesterday
afternoon by Deputy Sheriff
Itoso and Chief MjDuflio in solving tho
mystery of n murdered man found
morning in the old government
corral at Iwilei. At first the man was un-identified
with merely tho appearnnco of
a bullet wound in his abdomen, and the
case was vaguo onough to question the
assumption of murder thut at once
bpraug into tho minds of tho Officers.
Four hours later tho police had uncovered
tho eutiro story and tho
4ied body found by so vera I women yes
terday morning proves to uo tnnt ot a
victim of as weird a shooting as has
over been heard of here or elsewhere.
Standing out in tho bloody story is
ono startling fact that scorns to insist
upon beiug verified by every detail
learned, little as tho officers can bring
themselves to bejiovo it. Not only was
the victim nslecp when tho fatal bullet
entered his vitals, but so was his assailant,
who was apparently living out a
nightmare that had thrust itself upon
his drink-sodden mind.
An of this Jn tho tumble-down deserted
stables of the former government
corral. Four of tho "winfe bums," all
members of this most distinct and pitiful
of all the Honolulu gangs, wcro in
a drunken stupor. Ono of theso creatures,
as half-asleep as tho murderer, nnd
just as sodden with drink,' struggled
vaguely ns the latter fired his revolver,
blankly, nt "haunts.'
Then in tho morninc one of tho
fmaining creatures turning over boozily

murder and into tho silence of the underworld.
Booze and Hinder.
This story was
dragged out bit by bit by Chief
last night from two of theso
wine-ridden human beings, Hollcrson
nnd O'Brien, who begged in tho
for "just a swig, Macj just another

Give it now, Oivo it straight,"
On tho aftoruoon of tutt Tuesday

there to spend tho night in thoir hilarious

with ouo hnndlo pointing to tho human
blot, saying, plain as day, "I did that."
How It Happened.
Finally all four went to sleep on tlio
dirty mattresses that were strewn about
the place. They woro covered- with
(leas. The fleas hopped about tho officers
yesterday afternoon. Tho Fourth
Party slept on tho outside. Next to him
wns Hollerson. Noxt to Hollerson was

In tho middle of tlio night Hollerson

' a vaguo feeling that it had been fired

over his head. Tho wreck of a man
got up on his knee. Tho gun flashed

it Hollerson swayed towards it and
soi7cd tho other's hand.
"Bon't shoot," ho muttered.
"I'll kill them, I'll kill them,"
screamed tho othor man. "They're
trying to rob mo. Thoro they nro," and
tho gun spat again towards tho door.
Hollerson dropped to the ground and
slipped away. His hand had fifty powder-pocks
in it from the flash of tho
gun. His hand wns around the barrel
when It went off. He docs not know
where ho went.
