Deputy Marshal Dayton, coroner tor

shooting early in the morning. When
he was notified that the man was dead,
he at once empanelled a jury for the
purpose of holding an inquest. It was
not held until late in the afternoon on
account of the doctors riot being able to
get through with the post mortem exam
ination. The inquest was held at the
residence of Mr. Dimond, the following
jury leing sworn : A. M. Hewitt, J. H.
Lovejoy, F. Hilder, Lau Chong, L. Ahlo

officiated as clerk. The following is the
evidence taken :
Henry Dimond, sworn, stated: The
deceased worked for me about three
years. I was awakened from my sleep
last night by a loud noise from my
chickens. A few minutes later my son
Edwin came down to my room &nd
wanted my revolver. At first I refused
to let him have it. He said: "I will
only use it to defend myself." I knew
that Edwin was self-possessed and
brave, and that there was no (Linger, so
I let him have it. I then ran to the
door, and screamed for Ah Leong to go
and assist. The night was very dark
and 1 think the thief escaped. I heard
the pistol shot. I think I saw the tie
ceased come out of his room. My son
was out in the yard then. The deceased
came up to the faucet and made no de
monstration then. I did not speak to
him. It was not over ten minutes when
1 loiind ne was snot. lne charges are
drawn from the pistol. Only one was
tired. Mv son brought the pistol into
the house and put it into a drawer. This
affair occurred a few minutes after 1
o'clock. The charges were drawn from
the revolver by me this morning. I
went off from the veranda after it was
Hugo Stangenwald, M. I)., sworn,
stated : I am a physician and surgeon.
I was called to see the deceased about 1
o'clock. I heard the chickens making a
noise and the report of a pistol. A little
while alter Edwin Dimond came over,
and it was some time before I could get
him to say anything, he was so excited.
I took my surgical instruments and nec
essary medicines and came over. The
deceased was sitting at his room door
evidently in pain. I felt his pulse, and
then had him carried carefully to his
be 1. Upon examination I found a
wound in his abdomen. It was on the
left side, a little below the ribs, and
about two or three inches from the navel.
There was no hemorrhage to speak of,
only a little oozing of blood. I felt for
the ball, but could not find it. It had
evidently entered the abdominal cavity.
I did not turn him over then, as he was
very weak and the pulse was failing. I
administered brandy and some soothing
medicines, and recommended that Dr;
McGrew should bs sent for, which was
done. When Dr. McGrew arrived, the
deceased had rallied somewhat, so that
we were able to turn him over. We
discovered the ball under the skin at a
point about halfway between the ante
rior spine of the ilium and the spinal
column, showing the ball had taken a
course upward and outward, which was
verified by the post mortem examina
tion. As he complained of very severe
pain, some more morphine was admin
istered, but this time by hypodermic in
jection, as he had commenced to vomit.
This proved effectual in stopping the
pain and vomiting. A smail lump oi ice q '
was given him to quench his thirst.

IloHrt MeKibbin, M. !., sworn,
stated: I assisted lr. Stangenwald in

, in regard to it, and en'ectiy agree with
.1. D. Tucker, sworn, stated: I live
, next door to Mr.j Iimond. -My wife
; woke me up, and I heard chickens
making a noise. I heard the report of a
pistol, and sung out, " is that you, Ii
mond ?' He said yes." I asked him
if he wantel me to come over. He said
"yes; you miht come over." I did so, i
and saw the Chinaman lying on the j
ground near the water piie, groaning j
ami rolling all around. Then Holt came
up and went and t - iantern. The de- j

over and the light shone on his face, j
Edwin Uimotid and Holt picked him up i
a:id agisted him over to his room.
Edwin was surprised to rind that it was i

a as shtt.
Edwin Hail limond sworn, stated:!
During the night, aUjut live minutes!
before 1 o'clock, the tirst alarm 1 heard j
was a noise as of a hen being choked by i
the neck to prevent it making a noise, j
j I heard a similar noise about live nan-1
j utes afterwards, and then went down j
j stairs. It was 1 o'clock. I went and j
j told my father that there was some one j
stealing chickens, and I wanted his j
pistol. I told him I would not use it j
only to defend myself. I took the pistol j
from my father, and went out to where 1
heard the noise of the chickens. My
father went as far as the kitchen door
and called Ah Leong, who was asleep.
The latter opened his door, and I called
out for him to come, as there was a man
up in the tree stealing chickens. We
got a ladder, and while in the act of
putting up the ladder there was a sus
pension, and during that susinmsion I
saw a man going towards the west. I
said to myself, there is the thief; he
must have slid or jumped down and was
running away. I followed him, and
called out to him lor to stop. Alter I
had run a few steps I fell flown. At the
same time that I fell the person turned
and advanced towards me while I was
oa the ground. I thought to myself, is
he going to surrender or spring on to me.
If lie does he will overpower me in a
moment. I considered my life in jeop
ardy. Just then I raised the pistol and
lired while I was still on the ground.
He was about ten feet from me when I
fired. I got up and said in English sur
render, and immediately called to Ah
Leong for assistance. I called about six
times, at intervals of several moments,
quite loudly. As there was no response I
thought he had run otf for a policeman.
While I was calling for Ah Leong, Mr.
Tucker asked me if he should go for a
policeman. I said, yes. Then the per
son came toward the house, and laid
down on the grass. He laid down first 1
at the spot where 1 fired from. About a
minute after I had fired I knew the bul
let hal hit. Mr. Holt came up then
with a lantern, and I put it to the man's
face and found it was Ah Leong. An
awful feeling came over me when 1
found it was him I had shot. I said :
Ah Leong, is this you ; and he said he
had had nothing to do with stealing the
chickens; he had been fast asleep. I
said, I know you had not been stealing
the chickens ; you are a good man, and
I did not know it was you that I shot.
This is the pistol (produced). I fired
only one shot. It is a self-cocker. After
I found it was Ah Leong, he walked over
to his room, assisted by someone. I
had hold of one hand. I went and got
J. It. Holt sworn, stated: The first I
heard was the report of the pistol. I
live in the next yard. It was about 1
o'clock. When we took the Chinaman
to his room it was half-past 1 o'clock. I
came over and saw Sir. Dimond standing
up and the Chinaman on the ground
close to the cook house. Dimond was
four or five feet away from the man. He
called for a light, and taking a lamp,
found it was his cook, Ah Leong. The
latter said he was dying. Dimond spoke
to him in Chinese. I assisted him into
his sleeping room, and remained with
him up to the time of his death at 'J : 45
a. m. Mr. Dimond, when questioned,
said he had shot a man, but did not
know who it was. I was afraid to touch
him ; he might have something in liis
hand. I could not find out where it was
only by the groaning of the man.
This being all the evidence, the Coro
ner and jurors visited the scene where
the shooting took place.
After due deliberation the jury re
turned the following verdict: That tlie
deceased, Ah Leong, came to his death

lActivity In the Lake District Con
The loUl I.'.hh or Mle.
Since the li.-t monthly summary,
there ha- b-e;i j. -ur.'uined activity in
many of the jvints o." eruption in the
Lake district, but u;on a comparatively
mild scale. U;i several occasions there
have leen wonderful displays of latent
energy, but all these have been very
tame affairs as compared with the ter
rible exhibition of for -e on the morning
of the 10th of June, which sent up
tongues of liame t a bight of nine
miles. Many of the boiling springs,
however, have manifested an unwonted
energy. Some of them have Ijoiled at a
tierce rate, and many of the geysers
have thrown up water to a great bight.
Tlie level of some portions of the land in
the Lak district appear to have
changed. The plain where the town
ship of Ohinemuta is situated is said to
be now at a lower level by something
over three feet. But whether this state
ment is based uion a good foundation,
or whether the apparent difference is
due to a fuller supply of water in Lake
Kotorua, will require some time to de
Uirmine with certainty.
Earthquake shocks are still
(common than was the case before the
great eruption! but
they have hitherto
Several of the new
volcanoes which have been opened up
have sent steam and flames to a very
great bight on different occasions, some
times to a hight of upwards of 9,000
feet, but these tils of energy are of short
duration, and the residents in the dis
trict give little heed to them.
The large quantity of volcanic ashes
which was thrown out in the terrible
outbreak, and which has spread over
some L'00,000 acres, are now found to be
not hurtful to vegetation. In places
where the depth has not been great, the
grass and other vegetation is springing
up quite freely, and many believe the
ashes will yet prove a benefit to the dis
trict; and several people have tested the
fertility of the debris thrown out by sow
ing various kinds of seeds therein, and
watering with distilled water. In each
case the seed has grown, and the plants
have thriven wonderfully in their new
situation. So satisfactorily indeed have
these trials been, that the Government
have granted a sum of money to have
several portions of the district (which
are covered with too great a depth of
volcanic ashes for the covered vegeta
tion to break through) sown down with
grasses and clovers as experiments on a
large scale. If these are satisfactory, as
j it js believed they will be, the greater
part, if not the whole of the covered dis
trict will be sown with artificial grasses
in the Spring, before the dry and warm
weather sets in.
Ii. has now been ascertained that the

tivity appears to lave occurred just
prior to the terrible outbreak at Tara
wera on June 10th. A boiling spring is
reported as having made its appearance
underneath one of the glaciers of Mount
Cook. Kuapehu, the giant mountain in
the North Island, has a large lake of hot
water on the top of it, and smoke is re
ported to have been seen rising from it
on several occasions. The eruptive
points on Tongariro, and the boiling
springs on the southern shores of Lake
Taupo, are all reported as having dis
played an unwonted energy recently,
and the escape of the pent-up forces of
nature at so many different points can
not fail in soon bringing about a state of
quiet, without doing any material in

place, though the Fink and White Ter
races are gone, are expected to largely
increase the attractiveness of the district
for tourists, large numbers of whom are
expected from Australia as soon as the
Winter is over.
During the last week or two Professors
Brown and Thomas of the Auckland
