IBY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH]
(FROM OUB OWN CORRESPONDENT)
The Kelly accomplices were again brought up this morning before Mr Foster, PM The proceedings were of a purely formal character, lasting less than 10 minutes John Hart was first arraigned, and on the application of Mr Furnell, who conducted the prosecution, he was discharged.
Mr Zincke, who appeared for the prisoner, re marking on the request being complied with, A sop to Cerberus ' James Quin, Francis Hearty, Richard Strickland, John Lloyd, John Quin, Daniel Clancy, and James Clancy were separately brought, up and remanded for seven days, on the application of Mr Furnell, for the same reasons as given on previous occasions Mr Zincke and Mr Bowman, who defended, protested but with no avail. On Isaiah Wright being brought up and a remand asked for, Wright would not wait to hear the decision, but hurried out of the dock with a contemptuous gesture, and muttering to himself. He was also remanded for the same period as the others Mr Zincke, who appeared in his case, also protested.
ITS PROPER TREATMENT ILLLUSTRATED BY TWO
CARES MENTIONED IN THE ANNALS OF NEW SOUTH WALES
In these days, when bushranging bids fair to become once more the temporary fashion owing to the fascination which the exploits of Mr Edward Kelly and his gang exercise over the ill-regulated minds of certain charming youths of Australian parentage, it may not be amiss to gather from the records of the past some idea of the spirit in which lawlessness of this sort should be met and put down. Turning over the leaves of an old scrap book the other day containing extracts from the public newspapers dating back as far as the "twenties" of the present century, we came across some interesting accounts of how bushrangers were treated in "the brave days of old," when the country was more thinly populated than at present, and therefore more open for the uninterrupted operations of these interesting gentlemen. Who knows but the story of the heroism and determination displayed on certain occasions may animate the next "stuck up" township to resistance, and incline it to the belief that men may do something better with their hands and arms under such circumstances than "throw then up" at the word of command.
