Euroa Robbery 10/12/1878

Photograph Was I there to 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 myself and my brother William. He took that action under the Felons Apprehension Act. The sympathizers were held in Beechworth goal.

I was arrested near Hedi by ... (Argus7/1/79)

I was remanded by the court in Wangaratta. (OMA9/1/1879)

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), See also (Argus17/4/79)

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
