ALL PATTERNS AT REDUCED PRICES. s OZAKI WAVE RLE Y BLOCK, HOTEL ST. J. K. Smith by th-:s? natives (part Malay) sent a thrill of horror over the Island. Dr. Smith, a brother o the Attorney-General, ha-1 been from hi 5 earliest, years a .ievote-i friend of the Hawaiian s and had been ep-oiahy kind and helpful to the people who co ntpa.?e fashion. d his da: aeh Kapea was hanged at Oahu Prison yesternoon forenoon and appeared to be the least concerned man on the premises all during the preparations for his execution. lie showed neither fear nor nervousness exhibited little mere than interest in the handling of himself for supreme punishment by law. Kapea was really nonchalant. He was a man of sufficient intelligence to appreciate as fully as anyone his sit uation, but he either did not care or was entirely reconciled. He refused bran dy, saying that he needed no stimulant and that it was his desire further to go to the gallows quite himself in a natural way. Kapea had no speech to make, and when on the scaffold utter ed words but once. This was when he remarked that the rope was very tight about his neck. There were tiny, filmy drops of rain sifting through the sunshine when the young man was brought out to be hanged. The party appeared from within the prison just as four bells (ten o'clock) had been struck. In two minutes the fine form of the young man was dangling from the rope end. 'ourteen minutes later the physicians informed the jailor that life was ex- inct. The body was taken down, placed in a coffin and carried to Ma- kiki cemetery for burial. The inter ment was at Government expense. No riends followed the remains to the grave. The authorities rerusea to ai- ow a post mortem by surgeons. Ka pea s neoTc was broken, ueatn. was instant and painless. The murderer said he was 21. His -cousins said he was 25. He was of superb build, being six feet tall, handsomely proportioned and of good features. (At 9:55 Kapea was brought into the office at the jail. Here the death war rant was read by aiarsnai urown m nglish and translated into Hawaiian by Judge iWiloox. Kapea was asked f he understood and without hesita tion replied in the affirmative. As to final request, he wished only to thank his counsel, A. G. M. Robertson, and warmly shock that gentleman's hand. The murderer must have confessed and expressed contrition and repent ance, for the following was furnished the Advertiser by the priest in attend ance: "Kapea (christened Peter) died as a good Christian, after having re ceived from the Rev. Father Clement the sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church." At the last moment Father Clement read: "Amen. I say to thee, this day shalt thou be with Me in Para dise." The priest added: "haul our Lord to the repenting thief." This was followed :by a brief prayer. Tietween Kapea and Kaio, son and father, there was a touching farewell. They embraced and kissed and the elder man wept. Kaio was told on Sunday morning that his life has been spared "by 'the pardoning power. He brightened up at once and in a few hours showed the beneficial effects of release from th strain which he had been under. Officia'l notification was given Kaio of the commutation ten minutes before the death warrant was read to Kapea. The son had no complaint to make, when a few minutes before his death he learned that his father was to live on.

Vounsr Kaoea at Oahu prison ex piated a murder which has no parallel in the criminal history ot the islands A half sister of his has been summon ed as a leper suspect by Dr. Jared K. cimitii rvn thp Island of Kauai, lne whole family of natives at once plotted for the life of the Government physi cian. Several methods of assassination wprp snofcested. Kapea practiced with a nistol. Late of a dark night he rode tr the home of the victim selected Dr. Smith came to his door in response to a knock. Kapea sent a bullet into the doctor's heart. Attorney . A Kinnev and Marshal Brown were the principals in ferreting out the murder ous nlan. The crime was committed Sent. 24. 1S97.
