It was exactly at 2:58 o'clook in
tho afternoon and not at 10 o'clock
in th& morning, that tbo informa
tion regarding tho inurdor of tho
Japanese woman Driu at Wnialua
was recoived at tbo police station.
It was telephoned in to tbo Deputy
Marshal's ofllco, and Deputy Mar
shal Chillingworth had just time,
when tbo messaco was completed,
to jump into a hack and mako tbe
3:10 train. Mr. Chillingworth
roturnod on tho morning train
with a Waialua polico officer, and
three Japanese prisoners in hand
cuffs. One of theso lattor is the
busbaud of tho deceased woman.
Tho story pf tho whole affair, as
told by. Mr. Chillingworth, is as
"At 10 o'clock yesterday morn
ing somo plantation laborers dis
covered tho body of a dead Japan
cso woman at Puuiki, a placo
about two milos from tho Waialua
station, and a hundred yards from
tho railroad track. At 12 o'clock
tho Waialua polico wero notified,
and Deputy 81ioriff Androw Cox
wont to whoro the bedy was. After
investigation, ho made up bis
mind that tho woman had died by
foul means. Ho thon summoned
witnesses and had a Coroner's
Jury sworn in.
" I was notified at 2:58 o'clock
and wont down to Waialua on the
3:10 train. I jumped off at an
open spaco wuoro tlio Docly was
and examined it. Over tho right
temple was an ucly, black contu
sion about two inobes in diametor
with tho appcaranco of having
boen tbo result of a blow from a
duol, "heavy instrument. Tho loft
arm was wronched and tho hair
dishevelled. Ono shoo was gone.
In tho canofioldB wero more evi
douces. Footprints of several men
wero found and tho cano in tho
field near by was pushed aside as
if pooplo in a hurry had passed
through. A man's bIioo was found
in tho caneOold.
" NiBhimoto, tho husband, and
two men suspected of boing impli
cated, wore arrested. Tho investi
gation of theso took all tho re
maindor of tho afternoon aud until
2 o'clock this morning. At 4 o'clock,
1 took tbo train and returned to
tho oily with my prisoners. Those
follows aro being held, ponding
"Of course, 1 can pay no
thing yet as to tho guilt
of tbo prisoner?. Tho husband
undoubtedly had some grievance
against bis wife for they were ftl
ways Gghtinu at thoir quarter in
one of tho plantation camp. Last
Sunday mght tlmro was more

Audrow Cox, doputy sboriff of
Waialua, called tho Coronor's Jury
togelhor this morning at 8 o'clook
The silting was not of long dura
tion. Tho only testimony token
whs that of Dr. Keid, physician at
Waialua. Ho expressed it as his
opinion that tho Japaueso woman
had oomo to hor deatli by violonce,
as ovidoucod by tho wound abovo

To a loud oncoro they rosponded

Undor tho direction of Professor
A. MarnuoB, the pupils of St. An

Nineteonth Century." Tho school
clad in whito marched on tho stage
to music, escorting eight couples
of little folks in quaint oldtimo

tho front position, danced a modi
fied minuet, singing all tho while.
Messrs. Harry Preston and
