Correct Accounts of tbe Puna and Kona Atrocities. IIi3 Honor Judge Bickerton has eiven our reporter particulars from memory of the evidence upon which the two China men were convicted, whom it was his painful and solemn duty to sentence to the extreme penalty of the law while presiding at the Waimea Circuit Term. The accounts differ considerably from the first published reports made up hastily from different sources. THE MURDER OF KAPJLHEE IX PUKA. The connection of Ahapa alias Ah Hop with the murder of the aged echool teacher, Kapahee, in the Puna District, was established judicially according to the fouowing particulars. There was an appeal pending at the time the deed was committed in 'a lawsuit between Ah Sne, the Chinese prisoner who -committed suicide cn the steamer W. G. Hall, and Kapahee. It was to be heard at the Kan term in September. A few days before the term was to open, Ah Sue and Ahapa were seen passing up the road toward Capt. Eldart's house. Ka pahee had gone ahead of them some time beiore. All were walking, none having horses. Kapahee went to Eldart's ex pecting to collect quite a sum of money from EJdart for services rendered. He found, however, that only $10 were due him: which Eldart paid. Kapahee left there about 8 a. in., to go back by the same road, and was never again seen alive. His body was found secreted two or three davs afterward in a large. crack in the lava field, very much muti lated about the head and the place cov ered with moss-covered Btones. The dis covery was made through the scenting of a dog and surrounding large swarms of flies. A great many people had turned out to engage in the search. The party found on close examination stones in" the road having grav hairs and blood marks on them. Bv such marks the place was indicated where the body had been dragged from the road into the bush, also the place where the body had lain for some time before last concealment. This was mauka, but the bodv was found some distance makai, of the Government road. A remarkable circumstance here en ters the chain of convicting evidence. It appears that a little boy about eight years of age had passed along the road where the two Chinese had been seen to go and Kapahee to come. The boy knew the Chinamen well, as everybody in the locality did. He first saw the other one and a little further on the one now under sentence of death secreted in a cleft of the rock by the side of the road. The next morning this boy pointed out to the people searching for Kapahee, whose murder had as yet been undiscovered, where he had seen these two Chinamen. They' having in the face of this positive information stated that they were not on the road at all led to their "arrest. It seemed that Kapa hee while returning on foot from Eldart 'a must have been struck when passing with a heavy stone from behind, then probably finished and dragged off into the busii. That night a strange China man arrived at Ah Sue's house, where he and Ahapa were living, and they forced the stranger by threats of killing him to go with them to move the body from the place they had temporarily secreted it in the bush. They took a pack donkey and about midnight re moved the" body down to the place where it was discovered buried in the rocks. The prisoner under sentence himself testified to the same facts as the third Chinaman employed, about mov ing the body, but he claimed that Ah Sue had done the killing and that he (Ahapa) had taken no part in it. THE KOXA MURDER. . Akana. the condemned prisoner from South Kona, had been living with his cousin Ah bm at JNapoopoo. me two kinsmen had, it appears, had a dispute about $200 that Akana owed to Ah Sin. Akana had been spreading a repoit around for a wejik before the tragedy, to the effect that Ah Sin contemplated committing suicide. That afternoon he removed a very old native woman from their house to the house of neighbors, telling them that if she stayed at the first-mentioned place she might die or be killed. About 8 o'clock that night tbe house was seen to be on fire by the people living in the neighborhood. They hurried to the spot and found the house all burned down, but could find nothing of the Chinese who had lived in it. Thflv then besan a search, coing down to the house of the father-in-law of Akana. Arriving there in the middle of tb nicrht thpv fonnd Akana there, but could not get any information regarding Ah sm. A tana acted very strangely about some wounds on bis head, telling different stories about them. In the morning all went np to. the wpTift of the fire and there found in the debris the remains of a human being, the breast ot winch naa not oeen Durnea rwinc tr its lvin? close to the ground. Upon examination of the body they were satisfied that it was mat oi -a.n oin from particles of clothing left. There n'oro two iMit in the breast. Thev next found a bucket containing some clothes and water under a tree, lhey asUca Akana whose clothes these were, and he said they were his. Spots of blood were also discovered in the vicinity, scattered over the lauhala leaves. It was ascer- fi?nc? hit hlnod had hten washed out of the clothes nf the discolored water thrown away and replaced with iresh wat,r bnt still the second water showed indications of blood, while stains of that fluid remained m the. clothes, ine na tives then detained Akana till the offi cers of the law got there. Akana was in the. habit of retnrninc to the father-in- law's house early in the evening, but on this occasion he aia not. gei mere uu 8:30 o'clock, and wearing different .TrhH tr rhosft he were awav in the morning, while what tie wore in the morning were the clothes found in the bucket. He was arrested under the new law on a warrant from Circuit Judge Au3tin and committed for trial at Waimea. The horrifying crime was perpetrated on November 3d, and on the 29th of the same month the pris- nnor woq RATI tonrftd to" death. A great deal of evidence was taken in both the above cases. It was mostly circumstantial but very closely and in some points almost marvelously linked together. The very defense in each case was corroborative in certain particulars HJ (.lit? fJl UOCl-UHU" u vww. Several new cars of an improved type for the Hawaiian Tramways Company arrived OAHU COLLEGE. I-ast Weekly Exercises Uefore the Hol iday. Wednesday was the last occasion of the weekly rhetorical erercise3 in Oahu College before the Christmas vacation. An appropriate programme was carried out with credit to all concerned. Sev eral invited guests were evidently mucli pleased with, the entertainment. The exercises were as follows : 1. A Christmas Carol. 2. Declamation Christmas Carmen . " .-: Fred Haley Composition Christmas Customs. , Ellen Bicknell 4. Declamation A Christmas Song... Rufus Lyman 5. bong By the School 6. Recitation The Convict's " Christ- as Belle Louiscon . Dialogue Christmas in the Sand wich Islands. Scene A Parlor in New York City. 8. Music . ; By the School The carol was sung bv several young ladies under Rev. Mr. Bissel's leader ship with artistic power. Miss Louis son's recitation was admirably done. One of the teachers was author of the dialogue, that humorously presented the ignorance of people abroad regarding these islands. They have read books and newspaper descriptions relating to the group, yet could not state confi dently whether its location was in the north or south tropics. The remaining numbers were all ex cellent, the compositions meriting com mendation. At the close of the exer cises Principal Merritt announced that thirteen of the students had been "hon orarily promoted" and would not be re quired to take the examinations on Thursday and Friday. Personal. Mr. and Mrs. O. L. "Warfel, both teachers of experience, arrived by the S. S. Australia and will shortly be as signed to duty by the Board of Education. Rev. J. M. Alexander, at one of a series of missionary meetings held by the Presbyterians in San Francisco, gave an interesting sketch of the development and fruits of missions in the Hawaiian Islands. Among the visitors at tbe Oahu Col lege rhetorical exercises were Mrs. R. Whitman and son who arrived from the Coast by the steamer. Mrs. Whitman is a sister "of Rev. W. C. Merritt, Principal of the College. Fxom Japan it is reported that Vis count Torii, Japanese Vice-Consul to the Hawaiian Islands, who has been staying some time in Tokio, was to leave in No vember for the islands. Also, that Mr. Taro Ando, Japanese Consul-General, is expected to leave Honolulu shortly for Japan. Among the passengers bv the Australia was M. Metani, a young Japanese, who has come down to join the Japanese, Mission. Bv the next steamer from Yokohama there is expected another Japanese with his wife, who are to en gage in Christian work for their people on these Islands. Tli Late Mrs. Dickson. The funeral of the late Mrs. Dickson will take place Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock from the family residence on Ee- retania street. Mrs. Laura Fish Judd Dickson was a daughter of the late Dr. G. P. Judd, and a twin sister to Col. C. H. Judd, born Sept. 8, 1S35, at the old mission pre mises, Honolulu. The Chief Justice and Chancellor of the Kingdom, Hon. A. F. Judd, is another brother. She was married m 1S62 to Joshua G. Dickson.who died in 1SS0. A tribute to the memory of the lamented lady by Rev. J. A. Cru zan appears elsewhere. Hawaiian Hotel Arrirals. - Dec. 11 O. L.
