When Wagner is called the "Smutty Nose murderer," it is not meant that he has a smutty nose, but that he murdered two women on Smutty Nose Island. This explanation is made for the benefit of foreigners, who are not expected to be familiar with the niceties and the elegances of the "American" language. --- Traveller.
