Note*30 Apr 1896 James Kerwin, sworn and examined.
387, To the Chairman.—I am a storekeeper in Beaconsfield, quite near here. I was born here. I have 2 acres of land in connexion with the store. I am about 5 miles from the Beaconsfield station. There is a lot of difficulty in getting the goods up, because it is all uphill. I send a good lot of wood from the Beaconsfield railway station. I spend about £100 a year in railway freight for the goods I receive. I do not cart the firewood myself; the men who cut the wood and the wood merchants cart it. I would favour a line from Oakleigh as it seems likely to be the easiest to build. There are aoout 30 men in the gullies at present getting gold; about 280 ozs. went from this district last year ; they are working in Haunted Gully, Welcome Gully, Flannigan's Gully, and others; and therr is every prospect of a payable reef turning up. I am not particular which route it is as long as it comes to Beaconsfield ; it would be a great difference for me to cart my goods 1 1/2 miles instead of 7 all uphill. If I had a railway as near as that I would probably sell tea at a penny a pound less.

  • 17 Feb 1897, Seriously speaking though, it was a narrow shave. Mr. McKerwin and family were, it appears, at dinner when the great thunderstorm of Thursday week occurred. Coming into the shop after an extra size crash had occurred, he observed a considerable quantity of smoke, and thus became conscious of a few playful young thunderbolts cavorting around the instruments. Although no objection is made to cycling on the road, scorching on the premises is strictly against the rules, and therefore the attempt of Jove's emissaries to make a record on the partition was promptly quashed. However, although serious damage was prevented, the frisky fluid left, like Brooks' soap, a good impression behind.15

  • 20 Sep 1899, POLICE NEWS. BERWICK POLICE COURT. WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 13. Before Messrs. J. Wilson, W. Fuller, and A. S. Robertson, J's.P.
    Martin Olsen, a foreigner, was charged with having broken into the house of George Christie on the 2nd inst., and stolen a tent and a pruning scissors, of the value of 10/. George Christie stated that he left his house at Upper Beaconsfield on the date mentioned at 7.15 a.m., securely locking the door. When he returned, between 10 and 11 the same evening, he found one of the windows broken in, and the articles mentioned missing; the tent produced was his ; he knew it by the patchwork, ropes, and string upon it ; he had had it in his possession for seven years; the scissors were on his table when he left home ; they belonged to a man named Lewis, who lent them to another person, and they were left with him until the owner called for them : he found a peculiar button on the floor of his house, which he handed to Constable Steele.
    John George Lewis, of Upper Beaconsfield, organbuilder, identified the scissors as his property; he identified them by a peculiarity in the manufacture of the blades, and valued them at 5/ or 6/.
    Henri Ernest Martin, contractor, Beaconsfield, said that the prisoner called at his place at 10.20 a.m. on the the 2nd, and asked for work : he came to witness from the eastern end of the paddock and left again by the western : at that time prisoner was carrying nothing but a walking stick ; at 4.30 on the same day he saw the prisoner carrying a bundle which looked like calico tied up loosely or a tent ; prisoner was about 100 yards away at that time; prisoner told him that he had been working at Backhouse's place. Alfred Schlipalius stated that he saw prisoner near his father's place at about 2 o'clock on the 2nd; he was then going towards Christie's place, and was not carrying a swag; he saw no one else travelling on the road.
    Terence Kirwin, laborer, saw prisoner about noon on the 2nd inst; witness offered him a couple of day's work, but it was not accepted; asked prisoner where his swag was, and be replied that he did not have one; went with prisoner to Sykes' Hotel to have a drink, and returned to cricket ground, where prisoner asked for 1/ which was given him; witness noticed particularly the coat which prisoner was wearing and the buttons upon it; they had a peculiar fastening; the button produced by Christie was very similar to those on prisoner coat ; he never saw buttons like them before.
    Constable Steele, of Berwick, said that he had examined Christie's place, and found that the kitchen window which had six panes of glass in it had had five of the number broken; one of the crossbars was also broken; it must have been broken from the outside ; the hole made was large enough to admit a man; saw the prisoner in a paddock at Gembrook where he was working, and asked him where he was on the 2nd inst, and he replied "down the road at Beaconsfeld;" searched prisoner's camp and found the tent produced by Christie; asked where he got the tent, prisoner said he bought it from a Frenchman but he had no receipt; he then arrested prisoner ; on the way to the watchhouse, whilst crossing Stony Creek bridge, prisoner said that that was the place where he bought the tent from the Frenchman; on the 5th inst. Christie gave him a button; he compared it with those on prisoner's coat, and found that it was identical with them; there were three buttons missing from prisoner's coat.
    John Tyler also gave evidence that he saw the prisoner at Beaconsfield between 3 and 4 o'clock on the date mentioned, carrying a bundle which looked like a tent; prisoner dropped the bundle and came on and had a conversation with him about work.
    Prisoner was committed for trial.
    At the Criminal Court on Monday accused was found guilty, admitted six prior convictions, and was sentenced to three years' imprisonment with hard labour.5

  • 14 Aug 1902, Sudden Death at Kongwak
    A magisterial inquiry was held before Mr. R. Grant, J. P., at Jumbunna on Tuesday, touching the death of a man named Frank Mulhare, who was found dead at Kongwak the previous day. A verdict in accordance with the medical evidence was returned.
    Thomas Laurison, laborer, Kongwak, stated that he saw deceased about 5.15 p.m. on the previous day sitting beside a tree and asked him if he had been round his traps yet. He replied "No, I feel bad and will have to see a doctor." Witness went for Jim Murphy to help to take deceased to his hut. When they got back they found him lying across a log with his head down. They shook him and called him by name, but got no reply and saw that he was dead. Witness then went to Outtrim and gave information to the police.
    To Dr. Kilpatrick — Deceased said, pointing to his side, that he felt pain and great difficulty in speaking. From where deceased was first witness saw him he must have walked a chain in length. On Sunday afternoon and evening deceased was coughing very hard. He identified the body at the Jumbunna Hotel as the body of Frank Mulhare.
    James Murphy, laborer, Kongwak, said that about 5.30 on Monday evening he was at his camp. He heard the previous witness calling to him. He went to him and was told that Frank was very ill. When they got to where deceased was they found him lying across a log dead. He went down to the camp and got a horse rug and put it over the body. He identified the body as that of Frank Mulhare.
    Constable Fields deposed that about 8 p.m. on the 11th August Thomas Laurison informed him that a man was dead in the bush at Kongwak. He came to Jumbunna and constable Wood procured a horse and dray and they proceeded to Kongwak which place they reached at midnight, and met Laurison, who showed them were the body was lying. The body was lying across a log in a kneeling position, with the head hanging down and the arms stretched across the log. Constable Wood gave corroborative evidence, and William Kilpatrick, legally qualified medical practitioner, residing at Jumbunna, said he had that day examined the body at the Jumbunna hotel. The body was that of a man about fifty years of age. There was no marks of violence about the body. The face was very congested as if he died from suffocation. He had heard the evidence given by the previous witnesses, and was of opinion that death was due to natural causes. Deceased suffered from cancer of the lower lip on the left side.4
