THE WELLINGTON TRAGEDY.

NEW PLYMOUTH, November 16. Philpott, who is accused of Hawthorne's murder, is supposed to be identical with the man who in 1888 and 1889 wats twice before the Supreme Court here on charges of larceny and robbery from the person. On both occasions he was acquitted. While waiting trial on the latter charge he escaped from the gang working at Motaroa, but was recaptured. He is not a native of Taranaki, but was born at Portsmouth (England).
