Clemmed in by the sea in front and a
semicircle of precipitous mountains in
the rear, the little hamlet of Makua
was the scene of a frightful tragedy
on Friday morning.
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
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
"Murphy, what's this? Joe's dead!"
"I don't know mule kicked him." re
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
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
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
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
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
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
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

A man was arrested not long ago in
Missouri for burglary. It seems he had
forced an entrance into a large whole
sale store ; in the business district and
carried oft a lot of valuable merchan
dise. 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. The
fafe, containing thousands in gold,
was carelessly left wide open and
access to this fortune was easy. The
thief locked the safe without taking a
c-nt, but it was discovered later that
every DOUGIAS PATENT CLOSET
had been stolen from the warerooms. I
