REVOLTING STORY
SheciiEi Mnrfler Report Brought
Eroni Hawaii.
TELEPHONE MESSAGE SENT
To the Effect That Two Children Were
Killed By Two Women-Fearful
Retribution.
A horrible story of two murders
comes from "Waimea, on Hawaii. It is
reported by Purser Fernback, of the
-oeau, which sailed from Kukuihaele
last Friday morning, to which place
the news was telephoned. The story
could not be corroborated on the ar
rival of the Kinau from Mahukona late
Saturday night.
The following was the telephone
message to Purser Fernback: On
Tuesday, May 2nd, a native woman at
Waimea, the wife of one of the ranch
men, killed her little stepdaughter by
brutally beating her with a club across
the bowels. The woman had one child
of her own and had been in the habit
of cruelly treating this poor unfortun
ate daughter of her husband by a form
er marriage. Before the murderess
could dispose of the body it was seen
by a little girl who had witnessed the
end of the tragedy and who ran to a
neighbor native's cabin not far distant
and told of the event. A woman en
raged to insanity at this house by the
news, hurriedly went over to the place
where the murder was committed, bent
upon punishing the step mother. She
did not attack the murderess, "but dash
ing through the door, caught up the
remaining little child belonging there
and struck it across the neck, killing it
instantly.
Both women now came to their rea
son. Swearing the girl informant to
secrecy they buried the bodies of the
victims. The matter might have been
hushed up but the little girl witness
told others of the affair and it finally
reached the authorities, who on the
Thursday following the murder ar
rested the two women accused and the
next day the two bodies of the child
ren were to be exhumed as evidence.
