Euroa Robbery 10/12/1878 Photograph Did I help the boys at Faithful's Creek? Mass arrest of the sympathizers On 2/1/1879 Commissioner Standish ordered the arrest of about 20 sympathizers including Daniel Clancey and his brother James. He took that action under the Outlawry Act. Most of the sympathizers were held in Beechworth goal.
The men were held without ever being given a chance to defend them selves. They were remanded in custody for periods of 7 days. Only one of the sympathizers was effectively represented by a lawyer. The magistrates repeated the remands each week for over 3 months before the sympathizers were finally released See (OMA11/2/1879) (OMA13/3/79) (OMA18/5/79)
At the start, the arrests had public support in Melbourne but that turned into general contempt for the police. The mass arrests resulted in fewer people being prepared to assist the police or to supply information about the KellyGang
