Winiata, the murderer of a fellow* v . servant named Parker, at Cleghorn’s farm, Epsom, in January, 1876, who !,, has since been a refugee in the King : ' country, was captured to-day and brought into Hamilton by Constable Gillies. Plans for the capture were laid by the police at the Whatiwhatihoe meeting. Winiata was then living at Te Kuiti, 45 miles inland. The police enlisted the services of a half-caste named Barlow, who went to Te Kuiti . tirading for pigs with Winiata, supplying •' him with grog and making himself generally agreeable, and having ingtabated himself in this way, in Winiata’s confidence,he induced him tocome V mto his (Barlow’s) settlement, twenty- . hve miles distant from Kikikihi. Here Barlow, who is a very powerful man, • seized him and conveyed him single-

handed to Te Awamutu, where he delivered him to the local police. He will be brought up before the Bench at Hamilton to-day.
