Mild Killed on Fort Street by
JJ rid ire
A few minuter after five o'clock on "Wed
nesday last, Mr. Patten, salesman in J. T.
Waterhouse's store No. 10, Fort street, was
geeu to run out of tho store with a stick in
his hand and attack a mau on the opposite
side of the street near the Ten Cent store.
A short scufde ensued, when two pistol shots
were heard, and the two men separated.
The one who is supposed fired the shots ran
up the street, while Patten walked a few
steps, saying, "I am not hurt," and then
staggered and fell. lie was carried iuto
Messrs. Benson, Smith Af Co.'s drug store,
and expired in a few minutes. A great
crowd collected iu a moment, and when Mr.
Gibson, who had witnessed the affray,
reached Horn's bakery, in which direction
he had seen the man who fired the shots
run, he found an angry crowd there calling
for the man and shouting, 4 Ilang lim?"
'Get a rope!" Mr. Gibson entered a wood
shed attached to the bakery, where he found
Mr. Bridges, whom he accused of killin
Fatten, ana aavisea him to give himself up
quietly. This Bridges did, merely inquir
mg as to whether Patten was dead. He
was taken to the Station House and de
tained on a charge of murder. Coroner
Dayton empaneled a jury, and at 7:30 p. ar.
the inquest was held in Benson, Smith &
uo. s arug store, we aaa tne loiiowmg re
port of the inquest:
oroners. Inquest on tne Body of
Leonard R. Patten.
Befoee David Datton, Depuit-Maxskal,
The following jury were empaneled and
duly sworn: J. H. Paty, G. W. Smith, J.
T. "Waterhouse, Jr., J. H. Fisher, 7. P. Mc
Allister, Chas. Hasselmann. Mr. J.
Brown acted as Clerk for the Coroner.
waiter Murray uioson being sworn
stated: About half-past five this after
noon 1 was seated in my carriage,
at the door of Wenner & Co. s store,
I observed Mr. Patten at !the door
of Mr. John T. "Waterhouse's store.
I watched him closely, as circumstances in
duced me to watch him with more than
usual interest. I saw him conversing with
other parties at the door. I saw him enter
"Waterhouse's store and return to the door
with a stick of clean white wood " (part of
stick produced- and recognized) . "I observed
him run aeross the street and rapidly ap
proach a man, short in stature, now said to
be Mr. Bridges. I saw Patten strike Bridges
once with the stick. Then I saw a struggle
between the two men, and suddenly heard
two reports. Fatten waiued away, appar
ently unhurt, and I observed ' He is not
hurt.' After walking a few paces, I saw his
countenance change, when he staggered and
fell. Seeing the party who had fired the
pistol run away, I followed him id my car
riage to Horn's store. I supposed it to be
Mr. Bridges from the recent business trans
actions I had with him in regard to the pur
chase of a house and lot in Hilo for the Board
of Health, and also from rumors that I had
heard concerning Patten and Bridges. I
said to Mr. Horn, ' He had better surrender
himself up, he is inside the building." I
looked through the building and found
Bridges, and said, ' You have shot Patten,
you had better surrender yourself.' Bridget
said, Is he dead? ' He had nothing in his
hand at the time. He had no hat on at the
By the Attorney-General : About five
minutes elapsed between the shooting and
my finding him on Horn's premises. I was
thirty or forty paces distant from Patten
and Bridges when they were struggling.
The struggle was apparently caused by
Patten attempting to ward off the pistol in
dges' hand. I. saw the flash of a pi3tol
They were on the sidewalk at the time
When they separated, I said to my daught,
He is not hurt.'
By the Coroner : Bridges was going u
he street when Patten struck him from
behind. Had I known nothing of the cir
cumstances, I should not have taken bo
much notice of the matter.
By Mr. Paty : I saw Patten conversing
outside of Mr. Waterhouse's store with some
person whom I do not know. There was a
crowd at Horn's door at the time I arrived.
They were threatening to Lynch him. I
told him he had better go to prison at once.
Bridges came out of the woodshed on Horn's
premises with his head uncovered. This
hat (hat prodnced) is similar to the one
that Bridges wore at the time of the Kcufile,
and, I should judge, that this is the hat
that he wore. There were no other persons
engaged in a scuffle at that time, and at
that place"
James j. iobie swomi. stated: 1 was on
Fort street about ten minutes past 5 o'clock
this afternoon. I was standing opposite
Wiliams's Photograph Gallery. I saw
Patten and Bridges struggling with each
other. I know them both. Patten was
looking up the street, Bridges downwards.
Patten had a stick in his hand (piece of
stick produced.) It was Similar to this
stick. Patten had his left hand on Bridge's
right shoulder. Tho struggle lasted about a
minute. I saw Bridges put his hand behind
him and draw a revolver and lire. When I
heard the first shot, and saw the flash, I
ran across the street. When I heard the
first ,shot the parties were facing each other,
and very close together. When I was half
way across the street the second shot was
fired. Tatten was then facing diagonally
across the street towards Thrum's " store.
Bridges was facing makai. After the second
shot, Bridges ran up Fort street. His hat
had fallen off before the last shot was fired.
I think it fell before any shot was fired (hat
produced). I think this hat similar to the
one Bridges wore. That was the last I saw
of Bridges, Patten walked down the street
on the sidewalk. I followed him and took
him by the left arm. I saw his vest on fire.
I put the fire out with my fingers. The fire
was on his left side. - I was on his left
side. I said to him "Come with me
to a physician; you are wounded." His
reply was, "Oh, I am not hurt." I said,
"You are." By the time we reached Lycan
& Co.'s store, he reeled and fell against a
packing case on the sidewalk opposite Ly
can & Co.'s store. I said to a man coming
up the street, "help me take this man up to
Benson, Smith & Co.'s drug store, he is
shot." (The man who helped Noble to take
Patten to the store is named Gunn.) We
brought him to the store, where the body
now lies.
By Mr. Paty: I saw nothing in Mr. Pat
ten's hand, except the stitjk. I am well
acquainted with both of them. I saw the
pistol distinctly when he fired the second
Fred H. Hayselden, sworn stated: I was
in the carriage with Mr. Gibson, joutside of
Wenner & Co.'s store, the horse facing up
the street. I noticed Patten talking to two
persons at the inauka doorway of Water
house's store. One was Mr. Jordan. I
continued to talk to Wenner. My attention
was drawn by Mr. Gibson saying "Look,
look." I looked up the street and saw two
men struggling, one oi wnom l recognized
as Patten. They were then a littleoff the
sidewalk opposite the Ten Cent store. It
seemed to be a rough and tumble struggle.
each one trying to throw off the others
hands. I then heard a report at which
time they were both facing each other and
very close. The shot seemed to cause Mr.
Patten to swing round sideways towards the
man that fired the shot. Then there was a
second shot, the flash of which I distinctly
saw. They then seemed to separate from
each other suddenly, Patten walking down
the street, the other man running up the
street. I did not know who the man was at
the time, but from his stature I supposed it
to be Bridges. I saw a man throw his arms
around Patten as he was falling, opposite
Lycan's store. I drove immediately to
Horn's store, and Mr. Gibson got out. I
then drove to the Station House to see Mr.
Dayton. He was not there. I found Mar
cos and told him what had occurred.
By Mr. Paty: I saw nothing in Mr. Pat
ten's hands at the time of the scuffie.
By the Attorney-General: I recognize
this hat as one similar to what I had seen
Bridges wear the day before. It was shertly
after five o'clock that I saw the struggle.
When I saw Bridges being taken to the
Station House he had no hat on.
E. W. Jordan sworn, stated: Patten
worked in Waterhouse's store, No. 10, Fort
street. A little past 5 o clock, Starker,
Patten and myself were talking at
the door of the store. We were just
about to close up. Patten sudden
ly left us and went in and came back
with a stick in his hand like the one ex
hibited before the jury. It is used to roll
American oil cloth. I said "What 13 up
now?" or something like that. He made
no reply but ran across the road and up tho
sidewalk until he overtook a short man,
whom he struck over the head several blows.
mole No: 1499.
Then they struggled. Tht y got off the side-
walk into the street at that instant. I
; turned to go iuto tho store and heard a re
port as of a pistol-shot, and whilst again
turning I heard a second report and saw
smoke blowing down the street. The two
men then parted, tho shorter one running
up the street and Patten walking down the
sidewalk. A moment aftewards I saw a per
son take hold of Patten and ho (Patten)
fell. I saw nothing in Patten's hand except
the stick. The stick was about IU yards
long before it was broken.
By tho Attorney-General: I saw no one
take part in tho struggle, except Patten and
the short man. ,
T. M. Starkey, sworn, stated: I
in Waterhouse s lower store. I
on my way to No. 10 to dinner
5 o clock. I spoke to Patten
some goods, and Patten said ho had liot got
them. Subsequently Jordan came up, and
I had a conversation with him. Patten went
in the store and came out with a stick liko
this (stick produced). I saw him go across
the street and strike a short man over the
neck or slioulder. I then turned inside tho
store. I saw one blow and heard two shots
fired. I then saw Patten being helped after
he was shot.
By Mr. Paty: I know Bridges by sight., I
recognised him as the man- that Patten
went after. ' ,
The Coroner's inquest over the body "of L.
S. Patten, which was adjourned on Wednes
day evening to permit of a post-mortem
examination, was resumed yesterday morn
ing in the outer rooms of the Hall of Lodge
Le Progres F. and A. M., whither the body
had been conveyed the previous evening.
The autopsy was conducted by Drs. McKib-
bin and Emerson, and, at its conclusion.
the jury assembled in the adjoining ante
room, where were also present Jlis Excel
lency the Attorney-General, and W. R. Castle,
counsel for the prisoner Bridges. Tho evi
dence given by the physicians was as fol
lows :
Dr. R. McKibbin, being sworn, stated that
he had conducted a post-mortem examina
tion, assisted by -Dr. Ernerson, on the body
of Leonard R. Patten ; he had found rigor
mortis distinctly marked ; there were three
external gunshot wounds ; the first wound
was 1 14 inches above the navel on the median
line ; the second wound was over the ninth
rib, at the intersection of a line drawn per
pendicularly from the axilla, and a second
horizontal line drawn from a point 4 inches
below the left nipple ; third wound was
about 2H inches distant from wound number
two, and upwards and backwards from it.
Wound No. 1, in tho abdomen, allowed of
the introduction of fore-finger. From this
wound a large quantity of blood cozed.
The skin was scorched around wound No.
2. The ball passed along the rib. and did
not enter the' chest ; it made wound No. 3 as
it passed out, the distance from its entry to
its exit being about 2 inches.
On opening the abdomen, the peritoneal
cavity was found filled with a large quantity
of fluid and clotted blood. The ball that
caused' wound No. 1 was found to have tra
versed the wall of the abdomen, passing
downwards and backwards a little to the
right, and it entered the abdomen, and was
found lodged in the soft parts, lining
the right side of the pelric cavity,
from whence it was extracted, making
in its course a large wound in the right
external iliac artery, producing death
by causing profuse hemorrhage. Tho nature
of wound No. 1 must necessarily prove
speedily fatal. The pistol-ball (produced in
Court) was handed to me by Dr. Emerson,
and by me to the Coroner.
Dr. N. B. Emerson, being sworn, stated
that he had heard the statement made by
Dr. McKibbin in regard to the post-mortem
examination of the body of L. R. Patten,
and that he concurred in that statement.
He had extracted the ball produced in Court
from the locality previously described, and
had given it to Dr. McKibbin, whom he saw
give it to the Coroner. The result of wound
No. 1 would necessarily cause speedy death,
and, in the opinion of the witness, cuused
the death of Mr. Patten.
This closed the evidence, and the jury
retired, and at 10:30 a.m., lifter ast absence
of ten minutes, returned with the following
verdict :
That Leonard R. Patten came to his death
on tha 12th of November, 1884, in the city
of Honolulu, from the effects of a pistol bul
let discharged at him by Hiram A. Bridges
In testimony whereof the said Coroner and
jurors of this inquest have hereunto set
their hands and seals the day and year afore
said. Signed: David Dayton, Coroner; John H.
Paty. Wm. B. McAllister, John T. Wa tor
