THE MANSFIELD MURDERS
[BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH]
(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT)
BENALLA, TUESDAY NIGHT
Superintendent Hare proceeded to Euroa this afternoon in consequence of some inormation received. At half past 8 o'clock Superintendent Sadleir and 10 troopers followed Superintendent Hare by special train to Euroa. There is great activity in the police camp, but they will give no information.
The residents of Wodonga are of opinion that as the traffic from the railway station to the Albury bridge causes the principal damage to the road the Railway department should give something towards maintaining the road in proper repair. An application to that effect was made to the department yesterday, and in the absence of Mr Woods the usual stereotyped answer was given by Mr Labertouche, that "the application would receive due consideration.
The water supply to Wodonga is apparently not all that could be desired, inasmuch as the water is taken from a swamp. There are some persons who consider it would be more beneficial to health if they had their water from the River Murray in place of the swamp, referred to. An application to that effect was made nita alia to the Minister of Railway yesterday, and a promise was given that the matter should be brought under the notice of the Minister in charge of the water supply department.
