Makua is seldom thus disturbed. One- fourth of the population is employed fishing, a fourth compose the men who work on the ranch and the remaining are women and children who lead the ordinary lazy life of the.kuleana. But the whole population suspended work after the tragedy on Saturday and aft er learning all they could of it, assisting the coroner, and laying the dead away in the coffin, they sat down under the trees in a clump of little cottages and accompanied the eating of a roasted pig with words and songs in praise of the virtues of the dead man. "Joe Perry" or "Joseph Rego,'" a Por tuguese ranch helper, was Kiuea. There are two names for the dead for it seems he was known to different peo ple by both. The police arrested on the preliminary evidence, for the kill ing, "Pat" Murphy, boss of the cat tle ranch, a character known the length of the Oahu Railway as man when he is in liquor." . The story of the shooting is about as follows: HOW THEY BEGAN THE DAY. "Joe" and a native named Kaio arose Friday morning at the usual time, They helped the others with the milk ing. The milk was stored in the cans a-d placed aboard a train which left Kahu:u at six o'clock that morning for Honolulu. Then they, were sent to Ke-au to pump water into the troughs for the cattle. BoA men were riding mules. They left Ke-au about ten o'clock and rode back towards the ranch headquarters. On the way back the native stopped at 'his cottage to learn if his wife had prepared his mid day lunch. "Joe" rode on. He was to go to the paddock in front of the man ager's, Pat Murphy's, house and change the mule he was riding for another. Kaio was to follow him. In this way Joe got a half hour's start on the na tive and as the latter was approaching the manager's house he heard an "ex plosion." He rode on to the house and found Joe's body lying beside the mule in front of Murphy's house. The mule was hitched to the fence. It had a saddle on and the girths were in place but had not been cinched. "MULE KICKED HIM." Kaio shouted for Murphy and the latter replying from his house, Kaio asked : "Murphy, what's this? Joe's dead!" "I don't know mule kicked him." re plied Murphy. Then Murphy Issued orders to Kaio to go to the house of Kaleo, Joe's wife. which was about a sixth of a mile away and tell her to come and dispose of the body. Kaio did not stop to examine Joe. He did as Murphy directed. He told Joe's wife and also all the natives around. Kaio said that when Joe's wife got to the body ehe began to cry but Mur phy at once ordered her to stop cry ing. Kaleo stated to Deputy Sheriff Chil ingworth that she had been at the house of Lili-o with Kamaka. Lili-o and Kila. all native women. They had all heard the report of a gun. MURPHY TO WAIAN'AE COATLESS. The body was allowed to lie where it was. I. nder the full glare of the sun it lay while Sam Kaamai got on a horse and rode to Waianae, seven miles away, where he notified Cantain of Police William Carney that "Joe" was dead and that Murphy had stated that mule had kicked him. A train ar rived at Waianae at the same time from Makua and Murphy alighted from this. He sauntered out without a coat and Carney met him. He asked Mur phy about "Joe" and Murphy stated to him that "Joe was dead and a mule had kicked him." but he did not offer any explanation as to why he had come coatless to Waianae and left the dead body of his employee lying in the sun in front of his own cottage at Ma kua. Carney permitted Murphy to go his way. Carney went to Makua, and after making investigations and ordering the body removed to Kaleo's cottage re turned to Waianae and arrested Mur phy. He locked the latte'r up. and tele phoned to Deputy Sheriff Fernandez of Pearl City that there had been a mur der. At the same time messages were sent to Senator McCandless, owner of the ranch, that "Joe" had been killed by a mule and securing a coffin, Sena tor McCandless left Honolulu on the three o'clock train for Makua. At Pearl City he was joined by Fernandez and at Waianae by Carney. Then, at Ma kua these three made a thorough ex amination. . THE MYSTERY OF THE GUN. In Murphy's cottage a forty-five cali bre gun was found. This contained one loaded cartridge in the. breech, and nine in the magazine all the ammuni tion that the gun would hold at one time. They searched high and low but found no trace of an empty cartridge or. a gun swab. Not finding these and realizing that the case was an extraordinary one Deputy Sheriff Fernandez telephoned the facts to Deputy Sheriff Chilling worth, the coroner. At a few minutes before ten o'clock Friday evening the latter, accompanied by Dr. McDonald, police officers and an Advertiser man, left in a special train for Makua- There Dr. McDonald held an autopsy. He found that the bullet of a large calibre rifle had entered the right shoulder of Joe" and tearing through that had en tered the neck at its junction with the body, torn right through and gone out again through the left cheek. The bul let broke the Portuguese's jaw and shattered his mouth. The doctor was certain that this was sufficient to cause instant death. Deputy Sheriff Chilling worth made diligent inquiries and a: Coroner's jury was summoned to meet in Honolulu on Monday. Flashlight pictures were made of the body. ; , Returning Murphy was taken from the Waianae jail. When taken on the train he denied ever having said to any one that a mule had kicked Joe. He said he did not. know how the latter had come to meet his death. He could not give any definite reason for going to Waianae in his shirtsleeves. Senator McCandless had gathered Murphy's belongings into a small bag and gave them to him on the train. Murphy immediately changed his clothes, put on a white shirt and clean hat and then calmly smoked a cigar un til he arrived in Honolulu about four o'clock Saturday morning. He refused to talk to anyone. When searched at the Police Station he counted his silver carefully before giving . it over to the desk man. Murphy lived alone at Waianae. He had been on a mild drunk since last Tuesday. In his cottage he did his own cooking and was regarded as a bad man to deal with by the other employes of the ranch. On Saturday morning he purchased some sake of a Japanese at Makua. It is presumed, on the circumstantial evidence obtained on Friday night, that Joe was bending over the mule to cinch the girths of the saddle. The position of the wound indicates that Joe was in this position when shot. The na tives declared that there was no one else around Murphy's house at the time of the shooting but Joe and Murphy. Murphy has not been on the best of terms with the natives, at Makua, ac cording to the testimony of those in the settlement there. He has had much friction and only a short time ago was close to his death at the hands of a crowd of the Hawaiian residents, , wno ciaimea mat tney naa a grievance. On that occasion Murphy and a former resident there, were walking along the road when they reached a house where a luau was in progress. One of the Hawaiians, who showed that he had been drinking, ran from the house on seeing Murphy, and assaulted him, striking him in the face and on the body. He clinched with his assailant and upon this several others of the natives ran out and assailed him. Only the interference of the visitor, who J knew the people well, saved Murphy from serious injury, if not from death at the hands of the people. It 'is un derstood that the man who attacked Murphy at that time is a cousin of Perry's wife. -fH. A GOLDEN JUDGMENT.

The entrance was made through a back window, during the noon hour. The clerk; who was left in charge of the safe h?ad gone to one of the offices in another part of the building.
