Vi < TH hi: STUNS illURDERER KILLED IN BATTLE. ,i on has been received at :e P i 'n Office frotji her Majesty's Commissioner in UgmHh dated Port J iCi December 14, announcing that > i iJ the ringleader of the recent mutiny, and the I d ler of Major Thruston and Mr. Wilson, was kdled in an action on December ü, by a patrol detached by Lieu- t a i t < i unet Cole. The mutineers, broken and disperst;d. were being pursued. i! l Effendi was a captain of No. 9 Company of the bOliiLwese who revolted near the EldoinaRavine, i í tl ^epteinfaor, i897. < the outbreak of the revolt Major Thruston had gune :o Lu bwa's to porsuade the garrison there to remain loyal to the British, and with Mr. N. Wilson, the oÍficer in charge of Lubwa's. he m:¡de preparations to ) the station. On the night of October 16 the ii -on treacherously seized Major Thruston and lU r. Wiison. Mr. Scott, who arrived at Lubwa's the following day in a steam launch, also fell into the hands of the mutineers. On October 19 the mutineers came out into the open. and were repulsed by Major MacDonald, and when Bilal regained the station he brought out the prisoners and told them they were going to be shot. Major Thj-uston replied, If you are going to shoot uie, do so at once; but I warn you that many of my countrymen will come up, and that if you do this thing you will all have reason to regret it." While these words were being uttered Bilal inter- rupted the major by calling out for a rifle, and then with his own hands shot Major Thruston and Mr. Wilson. The former was shot through the head, the latter through the heart. Mr. Scott made an effort to escape and was shot dead through the back of the head by Itehan Effendi. The murder of the prisoners was committed contrary to the advice of the majority of the muti- neers, and was the work of BHal, Mabruk, and Rehan.
