NAPIER, September 28. Makaore was executed this morning. He took a final farewell of his three children at 6 a.m. He made no confession, but from his refusal to' partake of the sacrament yesterday lest he should have to say something before he died, it was inferred that he contemplated confessing. This morning the sacrament was administered, and when asked whether he would like to confess, Makaore said he had confessed to his God. There was a very small attendance aij the execution, the papers overnight having made no allusion to the coming event.
