WAVE RLE Y BLOCK,
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
d his da:
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
