Charles FRY : Blacksmith, Danevirke in the employment of Mr ELMBRANCH.
The deceased lived in a house, the property of his employer. A man had
come looking for the deceased and the witness tried the doors and found
them locked and the keys inside. He got a ladder and looked through the
window. He saw the deceased lying dead inside on a box. He got down and
told Mr GRONNEBAK that the woman was dead, so he went for the constable.
The constable came and they took the latch off the back door. The body

Death of Roderick MATHIESON
Roderick MATHIESON, Head Shepherd at MOORE's Station, Pohui is thought
to have been murdered. Mr PREECE, Coroner held the inquest, Inspector
KELLY the enquiry and Captain FOSTER took the depositions.
The jury returned a verdict to the ffect that the deceased met his death
through being wounded with a sharp instrument, but who inflicted the wound
, there is no evidence to show.
The stationhands, ANDERSON & LOPDELL, had thought he had met his death
by a kick of a horse and nobody thought otherwise until Constable LEITCH
arrived. The constable saw a long deep wound over the right ear which
showed the wound must have been inflicted by means of a sharp instrument
and this was borne out by Dr CARO's evidence.
AS CHADWICK has disappeared suspicion fell on him. Constables LEITCH,
GANTLEY and Detective GRACE are now out scouring the bush for him
CHADWICK is from 45 - 50 years. Married to a maori woman by whom he has
a number of children and his family live in a house three miles from the
