(PER PRESS AS8OUIATION;) Wellington, Jane 5. Early this morning, Louis Chemis was ar« rested, on the charge of murdering Thos. Hawkins, and subsequently waa brought up at the R.M. Court and remanded for a week. Inspector Thompson said that until last night neither he nor the Crown Prosecutor considered there wag sufficient evidence to justify an arrest, though Chemis had been tinder sus« picion for some time. Accused describes himself as an Italian, but some who know him well, believe him to be an Hungarian, which is more in accord with his name. He is the Louis mentioned in Mrs Hawkin's evidence, and in his house the dagger produced at the inquest, and double-barrelled shot-gun were found. Although the shot in the flask do not correspond with those in the b:dy of the murdered man, it is said that Dr. Cahill has detected some pellets in the|flesh about the same size.
