Early this morning Louis Chemis was arrested on a charge of murdering Thomas Hawkins, and on being brought up at the Police Court was remanded for a week. Inspector Thomson said that until last night neither he nor the Crown Prosecutor considered there was sufficient evidence to justify an arrest, though Chemis had been under suspicion for some time. Accused describes himself as an Italian, but some who know him well believe him to be a Hungarian, which is more in accord with his name. He is the Louis Chemis mentioned in Mrs Hawkins's evidence ; and it was at his house the dagger produced at the inquestand the double-barrelled s'lotgun were found. Although the shot in the flask do not correspond with those in the body, it is said that Dr Cahill has detected some pellets in the flesh about the same size.
