New Plymouth Murder.
[per press association.] New Plymouth, May 20. After the telegraph office closed last night Doctors O'Carroll and Leatham were re-examined as to the blood on Mahi's shirt but nothing fresh was elicited. Dr O'Carroll said he found three spots on the inside of the left sleeve, but they. were such as might have been occasioned by crushing a sahslily gorged with blood. The spots were about the size of a pin's j head. He could not say whether the blood tested was human blood or not. On the inquest being resumed this morning, Marion Cooper, a pupil at the High School, deposed to seeing a young Maori in the Recreation grounds about nine o'clock on Friday morning, but could not tell how he was dressed. At this portion of the evidence Malii was brought in dressed as he was when arrested. Witness said she could not say for certain if he was the man she 'saw. Could not be certain what clothes he had on. Thought he had boots, but could not say. Maloney was chopping wood that morning when she passed his house.
