THE KAIWARRA MURDER.

WELLINGTON, July 9,

The first witness this morning was F, G. Bolton, solicitor, who merely deposed that prisoner had refused to sign an agreement of lease between Hawkins and himself, and that legal proceedings had been instituted. There were negotiations for a settlement, but none had ever been arrived at. James M'C&llum said he had never had a row with Hawkins, and that the latter had never beaten him, but had threatened him once. He did not know of deceased ever having a quarrel with prisoner. Dr Cahill described the wounds on Hawkins’s body. Up to lunch time little fresh evidence had been elicited in the examination of Cahill. He said ho did not tell Mrs Hawkins on the evening of the murder that her husband was dead, but merely that he was taken to the hospital. He knew himself that foul play had occurred, and told Sergeant Morico so. Ho first discovered the gunshot wound next morning, and told Detective Benjamin the same morning how death had occurred.

In consequence of what came ont in crossexamination of Charles Bowles yesterday subpffinaa were immediately served by the Crown-on George Bowles and Leddin.
