Truth (Sydney, NSW : 1894 – 1954),

Sunday 4 August 1901, page 1

 

The death of Senior-constable William Sutherland, of the Glebe Police Station, on Monday, recalls the tragic death of his brother, also a constable, in June, 1889.

He was on duty at Macleay-street, Potts Point, when he saw a man jump over the fence of Mr. Bundle’s residence, Pomeroy.

He challenged him ; a scuffle ensued, and Sutherland was mortally wounded with a revolver shot.

A Victorian criminal, James Morrison, was executed for the murder.

The Inquest.

SYDNEY, Wednesday.

The inquest on the body of Constable David Sutherland, who was shot by a burglar at Potts Point, was commenced yesterday afternoon.

The prisoner, James Morrison, was in custody, handcuffed.

There was a crowded court.

Morrison is a powerful fellow, 28 years of age, and the mark of a heavy blow over the left eye is still visible.

Constable William Sutherland identified the body as that of his cousin. He was a native of Canterbury, New Zealand. He was a single man. His mother, three sisters, and four brothers were living there.

Medical evidence showed that the bullet severed the main artery of the groin.

Benjamin Backhouse, architect, residing at Potts Point, deposed that he was awakened by the reports of a shot. On hearing the second shot, he also heard cries for help. He then saw a man running away. The man was of similar appearance as prisoner. A fence over which the man scrambled was examined afterwards and showed blood marks.

Further evidence similar to that reported already was also given.

The inquiry is still proceeding.

Melbourne, Wednesday.

The Melbourne police have identified the photograph of James Morrison, who is charged with the murder of Constable Sutherland, as that of a man known to them as Jackson, who has recently done two and a half-years in Victoria for an impudent forgery.

Alleged Assault by the Police.

Senior-constable Thomas Grice and Constable William Sutherland were summoned in the Central Police Court this morning charged with assaulting John Brunty on the night of the 12th instant.

Plaintiff swore that he was leaving his brother’s public-house on the night in question, when defendant Grice stopped him, and asked what he had under his arm.

The two defendants then seized both his arms, and beat them behind his back, in consequence of which he has not been able to work since.

William Brunty, brother of plaintiff, Patrick Smith, Mrs. Brunty, wife of William Brunty, gave corroborative evidence.

For the defence Thomas Grice, senior-constable of police, stated that on the night in question he, in company with Constable Sutherland, was on duty at the back of the Lady of the Lake Hotel, and met the plaintiff.

Defendant took hold of his arm, and asked him to hand out what he had under his coat, and did not hurt him.

Witness was severely cross-examined by Mr. Levien.

William Sutherland and Mr. F. Wilkinson gave evidence as to the zeal and good conduct of the defendants.

Case dismissed.

Man charged over Vic officer’s bike death

by Callum Godde
23 February 2021

A man has been charged after an off-duty police officer was knocked off his bike and killed in regional Victoria last year.

Leading Senior Constable Dennis Cox was killed on November 12 when a car allegedly struck his bicycle at Sea Lake in Victoria’s northwest.

The driver stopped to render assistance but the 42-year-old died at the scene.

A 57-year-old Sea Lake man was charged with culpable driving on Tuesday by major collision investigation detectives.

He was bailed to appear at the Mildura Magistrates Court on May 18.

Mr Cox worked at Sea Lake’s one-person local police station for eight years and was described as a “well-respected and admired”
community member.

Family’s tribute for Leading Senior Constable Dennis Cox killed while cycling at Sea Lake

The heartbroken family of a Victoria Police officer killed while riding his bike have paid tribute to a “wonderful father” with a passion for serving his local community.

Leading Senior Constable Dennis Michael Cox, 47, tragically died when he was hit by a car while cycling on the outskirts of Sea Lake in northwest Victoria on November 12.

Senior Constable Cox’s death has sent shockwaves through the Sea Lake community where he had worked at the one-person station for the past eight years.

The popular and much-loved copper had close ties to the locals, having grown up in the Mallee region on his parents’ farm with his three sisters and two brothers.

He also had extended family in the area and was a champion footballer and past president of the Sea Lake Nandaly Tigers Football Netball Club.

His wife Selina said her husband touched many lives in the community and they were very thankful for the outpouring of support they had received since his death.

“We all loved him very much, he was a great dad. He regularly joked to everyone I was the luckiest woman alive,” she said.

Younger brother Phillip Cox said Constable Cox was an “old fashioned country cop” who was proud of his uniform and what it meant.

Colleague and close friend, Sergeant Brad Fowler, said it was his “dream job” was to work at a single member station, with Sea Lake his number one choice having grown up in the area.

“He policed by earning respect so that his community tried to mostly do the right thing so they didn’t put him in a bad position,” Mr Cox said.

“We heard a young man earlier this week refuse a drink as he had to drive home and he wasn’t going to let Coxy down.

“He trusted everyone and saw the best in those who made mistakes. He was patient and kind, as well as cheeky. Kids loved him and he was a brother to so many.”

Mr Cox said that was probably the reason why he had the least arrests and gave out the fewest fines during one year while based at Swan Hill police station.

He said Constable Cox adored his wife Selina, “the absolute love of his life”, and was the proud dad of Shauna, 20, Hannah, 17 and Jacob, 11.

“Shauna and Hannah were his two princesses and Jacob his right hand man,” Mr Cox said.

“Second only to Selina and the kids was his love of fishing and camping and (he) shared this with them.”

Constable Cox will also be remembered across the community as the legendary footballer who won four senior premierships with Berri-Culgoa, coached Sea Lake Nandaly Tigers and was later president after the two clubs merged.

Lifelong friend and current president of the Sea Lake Nandaly Tigers Football Netball Club, Colin Durie, said Constable Cox and wife Selina were “enormous” for the local club.

“He was a very modest man, he never looked for accolades, he was just happy doing his thing, keeping under the radar and just getting it done,” Mr Durie said.

“It’s just been a massive shock, it’s going to be hard to find someone else like him for our small community that’s going to put so much back into it … it’s just going to leave a massive hole.

“When he started policing he wasn’t here and the opportunity came up with the position at Sea Lake and I think he was extremely proud to get back and work in the community he’d grown up in and obviously loved.”

Constable Cox was off duty when he was struck by a car on the Sea Lake-Lascelles Road about 8am on November 12.

He had spent 12 years working with Victoria Police in the Western Division and was also based at Swan Hill police station during his career.

Major Collision Investigation Unit detectives are investigating the crash. The driver of the car stopped at the scene and assisted police. No charges have been laid.

A GoFundMe fundraiser to support Constable Cox’s family has so far raised more than $60,000.

Off-duty policeman Dennis Cox killed in cycling crash in Victoria

A tight-knit Victorian community is mourning the tragic death of its much-loved sole policeman, described by locals as a ‘true copper’.

 

The sole policeman of a tight-knit Victorian community who was tragically killed while cycling is being remembered as an “all round good bloke” and “true copper”.

Leading Senior Constable Dennis Cox, 47, was riding his bike when he was hit by a car on the outskirts of Sea Lake in northwest Victoria on Thursday morning.

Senior Constable Cox’s death has sent shockwaves through the Sea Lake community where he had worked at the one-person station for the past eight years.

The popular and much-loved police officer had grown up in the Mallee region, had extended family in the area and was a past president of the Sea Lake Nandaly Tigers Football Netball Club.

Local councillor and Sea Lake tourism business operator David Vis told NCA NewsWire “everybody knew” Constable Cox and it would be a great loss for the community.

“He cared a lot about the local community, he was heavily involved in voluntary work as well as with the football club,” he said.

“There’s a lot of things he did over and above his police work, and he will very sadly missed by the community.

“The community hurts when these types of things happen, it’s affected the town quite badly and he’s going to be sorely missed.”

Constable Cox was off duty when he was struck by a car on the Sea Lake-Lascelles Road about 8am on Thursday.

He had spent 12 years working with Victoria Police in the Western Division and was also based at Swan Hill police station during his career.

Local community members have placed ribbons and flowers on the Sea Lake police station fence as a sign of respect to their “much-loved member of the community”.

Former police officer and Sea Lake Men’s Shed secretary Geoff McGuigan said Constable Cox was “an excellent officer and a good man”.

“We were blessed to have you here. RIP. You will be missed,” he posted on Facebook.

Advance Sea Lake Inc community group said Constable Cox was “more then (sic) our ‘local copper’”.

“A community member, family man, all round good bloke,” they posted.

“‘Sea Lake 208, log us off thanks’, that was him, every shift,” another mourner wrote. “We will miss you mate.”

“A true copper and friend of Sea Lake residents,” local Peter Arrowsmith wrote.

Another friend wrote that Constable Cox was “a wonderful ex-neighbour, family friend, such a character, so sadly missed by all”.

“We are just devastated for Dennis’ big beautiful family … you wouldn’t find a more loving and decent family,” they said.

In a statement, Victoria Police extended its deepest sympathy and condolences to Constable Cox’s immediate and extended family and friends.

Leading Senior Constable Dennis Cox was a well respected and admired member of the Sea Lake community, working at the community’s one-person station for the past eight years,” they said.

Major Collision Investigation Unit detectives are investigating the crash. The driver of the car stopped at scene and assisted police.

His death comes several months after the Eastern Freeway crash that killed Constable Glen Humphris, Senior Constable Kevin King, Leading Senior Constable Lynette Taylor and Constable Joshua Prestney.

COBAR —

An unusual incident occurred at the Regent Theatre, Cobar, recently, when a lady resident, who was enjoying the pictures, was hit with an egg.  She had some knitting which she was doing, when, to her great surprise, she felt a sudden blow on the chest. On investigation she found she had been hit with an egg. Luckily, the yoke did not break, or her beautiful frock and knitting would have been ruined.

The matter was reported to the police, and Constable Megaw questioned a number of boys at the pictures, without finding who threw the egg.

The police were later informed that two eggs were purchased at a nearby shop while the pictures were in process, and as a result, they expect to be able to take appropriate action against the egg thrower.

This is a song I ( Tom Longford ) started writing for Renee when she was first diagnosed with Angiosarcoma.

After completing the first verse, I had optimistically hoped that each subsequent verse would be brighter than the last, and that the song would eventually include a happy ending.

Unfortunately, I was never given the opportunity to add anything positive for the rest of Renee’s battle.

I finished the song after we lost Renee and shared it with our Parents and our Brother.

I hope to one day record it properly with my band – but at this stage, if you’re interested in listening, you’ll just be hearing a version recorded via web-mic on my laptop.

Renee Anne LONGFORD


 

Sergeant Longford, of Picton, died on January 24 after battling a rare and aggressive form of cancer since late 2010.

She served as a police officer for 14 years and worked at Liverpool and Cabramatta before she began working at Bowral in 2008.

Superintendent Worboys said Sergeant Longford would be remembered as an excellent communicator who was positive about her duties, with no task ever too big or small.

“Sergeant Longford was the sort of officer that police commanders just want to have around,” he said.

“Renee was just as good at chasing and catching criminals as she was comforting victims of crime.

“She will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with her family.”

‘Humbling’ farewell to policewoman

Sgt Longford died on January 24 after battling a rare and aggressive form of cancer since late 2010.

She served as a police officer for 14 years and worked at Liverpool and Cabramatta before she began working at Bowral in 2008.

Sgt Longford and husband Peter Cotton, a police officer based at Picton, have three children, Dean, Jake and two-year-old Emma.

Sgt Cotton said his wife was also step mother to two of his children from a previous relationship.

About 500 people attended the service at St John’s Anglican Church in Camden, among those Sgt Longford’s colleagues, some wearing plain clothes and others in uniform.

Sgt Cotton said the rain stopped when his wife was brought to the family home before the funeral and the wet weather held off until after the service.

A police guard of honour saluted Sgt Longford as she was taken into the church and Sgt Cotton said it was only when leaving that he realised how many people had come to pay their respects to his wife.

“They lined the road way and it surprised me on the way out because I knew how many people we had left behind (in the church).

“I’ve done a lot of police funerals in my time and it was one of the biggest I had been to let alone been involved with.”

Sgt Cotton said a second service was then held at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Leppington, where the police guard of honour continued the display respect.

He said Goulburn LAC commander Superintendent Gary Worboys and family friends Ben and Tim Mallott were among those who spoke about Sgt Longford at the service.

Supt Worboys said Sgt Longford’s funeral was a fitting tribute to her dedication to her job as a police officer.

He said Sgt Longford would be remembered as an excellent communicator that was positive about her duties, with no task ever too big or small.

“Sgt Longford was the sort of officer that police commanders just want to have around,” he said.

“Renee was just as good at chasing and catching criminals as she was comforting victims of crime.

“She will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with her family.”

Sgt Cotton said the service was the best the family could have hoped for.

“It was quite humbling and quite fitting.

“I’m very proud that she’d touched the hearts of so many people.”

The Bowral police sergeant, who has been off work since September last year, dropped in on some of her colleagues last week to thank them and the community for all the money raised to help her family.

A fundraising dinner at Mittagong RSL last November along with a host of smaller events and donations raised $47,255.

The family lives in Picton and a fundraising bowls day, where everyone was asked to don Ms Longford’s favourite colour yellow, was another success last December.

Ms Longford’s partner Peter Cotton, also a police officer , has retuned to work at Camden. The couple have five children between them.

The couple has three children, including a one-year-old, and Mr Cotton has two children from a previous relationship.

The 33-year-old has been an officer for 13 years and served at Liverpool and Cabramatta before moving to Bowral as a sergeant in October, 2008.

Ms Longford used the visit to publicly thank the Highlands community.

“Thanks to the business community for their donations and all my colleagues who have been fantastic,” she said.

“Thanks to Graeme Day for hosting the night and Tony Fountain for running the auction.”

Ms Longford has undergone six rounds of chemotherapy and she said the cancer around her hips and spine has stopped growing.

She said she was considering using an experimental kidney transplant drug that could help.

While she would never walk the beat again she was focused on getting back to work.

“I’d love to get back to work,” she said.

Bowral colleague Jill Linford said the station had been overwhelmed by the support the community had shown.

“It’s really, really nice,” she said.

Sergeant Darren Farr, one of the longest serving officers at Bowral, said he didn’t realise how much support was out in the community for the police.

Summer Cruise Benefit Night

Saturday 15 January 2011

The Club hosted a Cruise Night on Saturday 15 January 2011 with proceeds going to Renee Longford, the daughter of one of our life members, John Longford.

​Renee was recently diagnosed with an aggressive type of bone cancer. The Club members decided to help by organising a cruise night at our clubrooms with all proceeds going to Renee.

The night started about 6.00pm and it wasn’t long before the car park was filled with Hot Rods, Customs and American Muscle Cars. There were many more vehicles parked in the street. All in all there were in excess of 100 cars.

The Flattrakkers provided the music for the evening and the kids were entertained with a giant jumping castle. The members were kept busy cooking the BBQ for the crowd of over 500 people. A monster raffle was held during the night with prizes donated by various members and other supporters of the evening.

It was a great night which was enjoyed by all and we thank everyone for their support. We were able to hand Renee an amount of $3000.00 which will assist her and her family during this difficult time.

A special thanks must go to Mick and Pam Cooley who co-ordinated the night as well as all the members who donated items for the raffle.

Here are a few photos taken during the night.

MISCELLANEOUS.

NOTICE.- We, the undersigned, having been induced to leave our native country by the representations and promises made to us to serve as a police force at Sydney, New South Wales, we now find we cannot have those promises realized, and without which our position would be much worse here than in England.

And we feel we have been treated by the police authorities with such harshness and severity, and harassed by ( we were going to say ) legal proceedings – but which will be found to be illegal proceedings – that we have determined on taking such employment as we can procure.

We are further noticed that, on Saturday next, we are to be put on shore to seek lodgings where we can.

We have, therefore, determined to appeal to the public for prompt employment in our respective callings, and we are willing to accept service at moderate wages in Sydney, or in the country, as may be required.

We are assured by our legal adviser, Mr. Ryan Brenan, of the firm of Brenan and Russell, that parties employing us do not run the slightest risk, and we are willing to allow our wages to accumulate, for a reasonable time, to protect our employers, should they entertain any doubt on the subject.

We shall attend at the office of Mrs. PAWSEY, Registry Office, No. 60, Castlereagh-street, on SATURDAY and succeeding days, to meet applicants, and to produce our testimonials of character, &c.

THE BALLOON RIOT IN THE DOMAIN

DEATH OF THOMAS DOWNS.

The boy Downs having died in the Infirmary on Wednesday morning from injuries received on Monday afternoon, by the falling of one of the upright poles erected in the Domain for the purpose of sustaining the balloon of M. Pierre Maigre during the process of inflation, an inquest was held on his body, shortly after mid-day, at the Three Tuns, King-street, before Mr. J. S. Parker and a jury of thirteen. John Kelly, Edward Atkinson, and Joseph Prior, three seamen of H.M.S. Juno, who were brought up at the Central Police Court on Tuesday, for riotous conduct in the Domain on the previous evening, and had been remanded till Friday, were brought before the Coroner in custody, it having been alleged that they took an active part in knocking down the pole which inflicted the deadly wound on the deceased boy.

The first witness examined was Emanuel Benjamin, residing in Clyde-street, Miller’s Point, who deposed that deceased, Thomas Downs, was his stepson, and that he was about eleven years old. Deceased obtained permission from his mother on Monday to go to the Domain to see the balloon ascent ; he was to return in an hour, but did not ; went to the Domain at 10 o’clock at night to seek for him ; then heard that two boys had been hurt, and taken to the Infirmary ; on enquiry there, found that his step-son was one of them ; identified, the body lying dead at the Infirmary as that of his wife’s son.

Donald McIntosh McEwen, a duly qualified medical practitioner, stated that, on Tuesday morning, between 9 and 10 o’clock, he made his usual visit to the Infirmary, and then saw the deceased, who had been attended immediately after the accident on the previous evening, by Drs. Nelson and McFarlane, in conjunction with the house surgeon ; examined deceased, and found him in a state of insensibility, with a very serious fracture on the left side of the head, extending from the forehead to the vertex ; about the vertex there had been several pieces of bone removed ; from the substance of the skull saw the place they had been taken from ; produced the pieces ; the injury he described would be quite sufficient to cause death, and such an injury would be inflicted by one blow from a heavy substance ; there was a clean cut extending from about the middle of the frontal bone to the vertex ; there was no coagulated blood on the surface of the skull ; the wound must have bled freely; a stick in the hand of a powerful man would make such a wound and fracture on a child of such tender years. On being recalled, the same witness stated that there were no other marks of violence on the body but the one he had described ; the evidence he gave was from what he bad seen, not from anything he had heard.

William Mortimer, inspector of the police force, and in charge of the C division, was next examined, and detailed at some length the riotous proceedings he had witnessed ; his attention was particularly called to some sailors belonging to H.M.S. Juno, forcing themselves over some iron fencing round the balloon ; he remonstrated with them, and got them to go back again ; about 7, when the balloon become inflated and rose two or three yards in the air, a rope fastened to the top of it became entangled ; some one cried out ” Cut the rope ;” M. Maigre was at that time in the car attached to the balloon ; it began swaying about, and the gas was escaping ; saw some sailors and soldiers, with other parties, pulling the balloon down ; his attention was called to a great number of persons rushing towards a tent in which the Governor and his suite had been sitting; followed and saw M. Maigre running, with a body of police around and protecting him, to get away to a place of safety ; on returning to the spot where the balloon was, having been away about four or five minutes, found the enclosure full of people, and among the most prominent saw some sailors of H .M. S. Juno, and some soldiers, who had surrounded and got hold of Captain McLerie, the Inspector-General of Police ; noticed the prisoner John Kelly; he, with other sailors, was pulling the balloon towards the fire, and they eventually burnt it ; saw the same prisoner most active in pulling down a tent in which the spirits of wine had been kept ; it was also destroyed ; about an hour after his attention was called to the same prisoner, who was engaged with other sailors destroying the fencing, chairs, and seats, throwing them into an immense fire ; Captain McLerie and he did all they could to prevent mischief ; he had been roughly handled, and threatened to be thrown into the fire by Kelly and others ; saw one of the poles pulled down with a great crash ; didn’t know by whom it was done ; also saw the second pole come down, a few moments after ; the sailors appeared to be a little groggy ; there might have been eight or nine of them ; had no doubt as to the identity of Kelly ; he was taken into custody and removed to St. James’ watch-house, where witness identified him as the leader of the mischief ; from the density of the crowd was surprised that so few people were injured by the falling of the poles.

William Hamilton Galbraith, a medical practitioner, had been in the Domain on Monday afternoon ; saw a machine miscalled a balloon, suspended from two pair of spliced poles ; saw it burned, together with a tent and its contents ; saw a soldier of the 11th upset an iron furnace in which was some ignited straw ; some sailors and others drew the balloon across the fire and set it in a blaze ; the tallest prisoner was the most conspicuous amongst them ; saw the poles pulled down by several persons whom he did not know ; there were boys and a woman among them assisting in pulling, and crying out cut the ropes ; took particular notice of the prisoner ; be ran bodily against the pole as soon as the ropes were cut, and by his main force shoved the pole down ; when the pole fell, heard a scream, and cries of Oh ! Oh ! ran to see what had happened ; found two boys lying, one with a severe cut in the head and quite insensible ; examined the wound and found there was a fracture of the skull, about four or five inches long : it was bleeding very much ; he breathed heavily ; heard afterwards that he was taken to the Infirmary ; did not see the prisoner cut any rope ; the poles would not have fallen had the ropes not been cut ; saw sailors, or men dressed like sailors, drawing out sheath knives about the pole ; immediately afterwards the ropes were adrift.

By the prisoner : At what time did you see me ? Answer : About seven o’clock. Had no doubt as to the identity of the prisoner.

Robert Hobbs deposed that he went to the Domain on Monday morning about half-past six with tents for the accommodation of visitors, and remained there till ten at night ; identifies the prisoner Atkinson ; saw him kick the furnace, and some sparks flew from it ; he did not kick it over; at the same instant the mob around said set fire to the balloon, which was no sooner said than done ; prisoner drew the balloon to the fire and set it alight, then drew it to the tent, with the assistance of Kelly and others, and set fire to the tent. The witness next described the pulling down of the poles ; the prisoner Atkinson let go the guys ; could have seen clearly had any one pushed at the pole when it fell ; did not see any one pushing it ; saw a soldier or marine about at the time the balloon and tents were burned ; he took a very active part in it ; did not see the second pole fall, nor did he hear any one call ” Get out of the way” before the first pole fell ; saw a man dressed as a sailor of the Juno, who was pockmarked; he took an active part in pulling down the poles ; could identify him.

By the prisoner Atkinson ; It was between half past 7 and a quarter to 8 that he saw the prisoner at the balloon ; recognised the prisoner by his dress and present appearance; he was a little excited from drink ; saw no sheaths or knives with the sailors.

George Nelson spoke generally as to the conduct of the crowd, and from the falling of the poles, from the position the boy was in, did not think he could have had anything do with the pulling at the pole which fell on him ; saw no one shove the pole, nor did he recognise the sailors now present as being there ; several sailors were throwing chairs and other things on the fire ; saw sailors with others pulling on the ropes, but did not see them do more than others did ; gave the alarm to the police that a boy was killed ; could not identify a single individual that was there.

At this stage of the proceedings, the enquiry was adjourned until next day ( Thursday ), at 12 o’clock, and the jurors bound over in the sum of £20 each for their appearance.

SECOND DAY.

Yesterday, at noon, the inquest was resumed at Mr. Driver‘s, King-street.

Mark Levy, furniture dealer, George-street, examined : Went to the Domain at 4 o’clock to see the balloon ; saw some men-of-war sailors there, who were the worse for liquor ; recognised the two shortest prisoners now before the Court as the men ; saw the sailor Atkinson pulling away the other, who gives his name as Prior, and persuading him to come away ; Prior wanted to fight some one ; they were disposed to be quarrelsome, and persuaded them to go away ; then saw Atkinson and Prior go out of the gate ; did not see them go near the pole ; it is possible that they might have got back to the pole without his seeing them ; saw lots of boys there, and it was his opinion they did most mischief ; was almost positive that the seamen now before the Court had no hand in pulling down the poles ; believed the people were quite as much excited as the sailors ; followed the body of the boy, and as he got outside the gate, saw the prisoner Kelly standing talking to some other sailors ; this might have been about 200 yards from the pole ; it is possible he might have come from the pole after it fell ; thought however, that he did not ; cannot say whether he was in liquor or not.

By a Juror : Was within a few yards of Atkinson when prisoner pulled him away.

By the prisoner Atkinson : Saw him first about four o’clock.

Samuel Redshaw, a police constable, stated that he did not see the first pole pulled down ; saw the second, however ; the prisoner Kelly was pulling a rope attached to it, and calling for help ; was about ten yards from him ; many civilians were assisting equally as bad as the sailors.

James Burt, sergeant of police, detailed the burning of the balloon, chairs, &c. With reference to the pulling down of the poles, he stated that there were civilians, as well as sailors and soldiers engaged in the work ; believes he saw the prisoner Prior there doing as the mob did ; the prisoner Kelly was not there to his knowledge ; had he been, thinks he must have seen him ; although he said that sailors and soldiers took an active part in the affray, he meant that they were more prominent by their dress ; the people were quite as much engaged as they.

William Carruthers, civil engineer, residing in Woolloomooloo, was in the Domain on Monday afternoon. His evidence presented no new feature, the chief point in it being, that before the pole came down a general shout having previously been given that it was falling, and to look out for it – it was almost impossible to say who was to blame in the matter, as it seemed a general thing. Dr. Duigan informed witness, after he had examined the boy, that he ( Thomas Downs ) could not live. Did not, on Monday, see any of the prisoners then before the Court.

This closed the evidence, and the jury shortly after returned the following verdict :- ” That the deceased, Thomas Downs, aged 11 years, came to his death by the falling of a pole in the Domain, on Monday evening the 15th instant, which was thrown down by a disappointed and excited crowd of people, out of whom it is impossible to single out any individuals as the ringleaders, or as throwing down the poles ; and we unanimously consider that, if any person is to blame, it is Monsieur Maigre, the perpetrator of the sham balloon ascent, which we consider caused the death of the said boy. We wish this to be considered a censure upon Monsieur Maigre. ”

SECOND COURT.

Before Mr. Justice Milford.

INDECENT ASSAULT OF A CHILD.

Patrick Connery, indicted at the last sittings, was placed in the dock to stand his trial for that he, at Paddington, on the 13th day of October, 1859, did unlawfully and indecently assault one Mary Ellen Burke, a female child under the age of twelve years.

Mr. Butler conducted the prosecution against the prisoner, who was not defended by counsel.

The prosecuting counsel addressed the jury, and briefly stated to them the circumstances of the case.

Sergeant Samuel Redshaw, of the Sydney Police Force, deposed that he had arrested the prisoner on the fourteenth October last. Witness told him what was the charge against him. Prisoner said that the charge was a made up affair between the mother, the daughter, and the old woman Connolly.

The witness was cross-examined by the prisoner, but nothing of importance was elicited.

Mary Ellen Burke, the child referred to in the indictment, aged about seven years, was brought into court, but as she did not appear to have received any instruction whatever upon religion, her evidence could not be taken.

Catherine Connolly deposed that she knew the prisoner ; at the time that prisoner was arrested she was stopping at the house of Mr. Burke, the publican – the father of the little girl, Mary Ellen Burke ; witness one day went up stairs, and went into a room wherein there was only a basin stand and a box. This was three or four months ago. Mrs. Burke’s child was there, and the prisoner was also in the same room. [ Witness then proceeded to describe circumstances which amounted to a direct proof of the charge against the prisoner. ]

The prisoner had been drinking that morning, and seemed much the worse for liquor. Witness went down immediately, and told the parents ; the father questioned the child, and, on hearing what she said, struck Connery with a billet of wood when he came down stairs ; Mrs. Burke had sent witness upstairs for the child. Witness was cross-examined by the prisoner, but her evidence was not thereby affected. Cross-examined by the Judge, witness described the nature of the washhand-stand on which the child was sitting when witness went into the room ; the little girl was sitting on the top of it ; the prisoner had owed witness a pound for a long time, and witness used to ask him for it ; about a fortnight before this occurred Burke was bouncing the prisoner, and saying that he would not give up the property to him.

Mary Burke, the mother of the child Mary Ellen Burke, deposed that she remembered the day that something was done to her daughter. She was upstairs that morning with her brother ; they both once came down together : they had then some money, which the child said Paddy ( the prisoner ) had given to them ; witness was in the front room sewing, and after that sent the woman Connolly up stairs for them ; the woman came down stairs saying the child was destroyed ; witness saw her husband, just afterwards, striking the prisoner with a billet of wood; there was no difference existing between witness’s husband and the prisoner, except that Connery held a mortgage over the house. The prisoner had drunk something that morning, but was not drunk ; witness was not drunk. Cross-examined by the prisoner : witness admitted she had once been placed in gaol by her husband, and that prisoner had bailed her out ; witness had never expressed a determination to be revenged upon prisoner; the witness Connolly was drunk on that day, at the time she came down stairs, and made the statement against the prisoner Connery. The counsel for the Crown begged to withdraw the case.

The jury ( by the direction of the Judge ) returned a verdict of not guilty, and the jury intimated that the prisoner left the Court without any stain upon his character.

Empire (Sydney, NSW : 1850 – 1875), Saturday 11 May 1861, page 5

WATER POLICE COURT.- Friday.

Before Messrs. S. North and J. McLean..

Sydney James Dalton was arrested by Samuel Redshaw, sergeant in the city police, charged with being in the dwelling-house of Rose Strange, for an unlawful purpose, on the 7th instant. The complainant Rose Strange, resides in Windmill-street, and only knew the defendant few days before she charged him with this offence.

It appears that he lodged in a house next door to the complainant, kept by a Mrs. Jacques, and about a quarter-past 2 a.m., on the morning of the 7th instant, the complainant was awoke by hearing a noise at the window shutters. She struck a light and saw defendant through the window, and asked him who he was and what he wanted, and he replied he would soon let her know. She went to the room in which her son slept, and roused him, and when they returned to complainant’s room Dalton was in the act of getting in at the window, whereupon, her son shoved him back, and he then went back to the house where he lodged.

On the following day, Mrs. Strange saw Dalton, and said if he apologised for what he had done, she would let the matter drop ; but he laughed, and said he was drunk at the time.

The prisoner, in defence, stated that when Mrs. Strange saw him the next day, that he said if he had been guilty of any ungentemanly act he was sorry for it.

The Bench ordered him to enter into his own recognisance in the sum of £50, to be of good behaviour for twelve months.

NEW SOUTH WALES PARLIAMENT.

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 4.

 

INQUEST AT LIVERPOOL

Mr W FORSTER asked the Colonial Secretary,

” 1. Has any communication been made to the Government, or to the Attorney General, relative to the alleged sudden and mysterious death of a man named Hart, a few weeks since, while in the service and upon the premises of Captain Moore, J P , of Liverpool ?

2. Was any inquest held upon Hart’s body, or magisterial investigation made at the time into the circumstances of Hart’s death ?

3. If so, by whom, when, and where?

4. Was there any post mortem examination, or was any – and, if any, what – medical man present at such inquest or investigation ?

5. What was the result?

6. Has any further enquiry been ordered, or is any intended, by the Government ?

Mr COWPER answered generally, that a communication was addressed to the Government and a magisterial inquiry held, the result of which he held in his hand, in the form of a police report.

It was as follows – ” John Hart, aged seventy-two, labourer, place of death, Asylum, Liverpool.

The deceased has been in the employ of Samuel Moore, Esq, J. P., Liverpool, for many years, but for some time past was not able to do much work.

He was very much addicted to drink, and on last Monday he got drunk, and a man named George Fagan gave him a slap on the face for making a noise in the yard, afterwards putting him into an outbuilding to sleep.

Yesterday morning, Captain Moore sent for me for the purpose of giving the deceased into custody for protection.

I saw that the deceased was very ill, and I sent a constable to Dr Smith for an order for his admittance into the Asylum. Dr Smith gave an order, and I had him removed there immediately, and he died this morning.

Dr Smith made a post mortem examination, and found that he died from apoplexy, and that the slap on the face did not hasten his death.

 

Samuel Redshaw,
245,
senior constable,
24th September, 1862 “.

The hon. Colonial Secretary stated further that, in consequence of a letter sent by Mr. Charles Luke Bayly, a second investigation was held before Mr Jones and another magistrate, with a similar result – the medical evidence proving death to have been caused by sanguineous apoplexy, and in no way brought about by the slap or blow which the deceased received.

Two PERSONS DROWNED BY FLOOD WATERS.-

The Coroner of Parramatta and Liverpool held an inquest at the Court-house, Liverpool, on the 24th instant, on the body of a man named Sidney Baldwin.

Samuel Redshaw, the senior-constable in charge of the Liverpool Station, deposed that at daylight on the 24th instant, he was in company with Mr. Thomas Thorn, searching for the body of deceased at Heathfield, about eight or nine miles down the George’s River, and found it in a paddock lying face downwards ; it was wet and covered with mud, and appeared to have been left by the flood waters as they receded ; it was then about 6 o’clock a.m. ; had the body brought to the police station.

Dr. Strong deposed that he had externally examined the body, and found it to present all the indications of death from drowning.

Thomas Thorn, farmer, Heathfield, deposed that he and deceased a little after daybreak on the 23rd instant started together on horseback towards a ridge, where some of witness’s cattle and horses were standing in the flood waters ; their horses got into a hole, and threw them both off into deep water ; both swam for it, holding their horse’s bridles; deceased said to him, ” I must let my horse go, it will be drowned ; ” witness then took both horses himself ; when he got standing ground he looked round for deceased, but he had disappeared beneath the water.

William Hart, a seaman, identified deceased as a shipmate of his by the Strathnaver, from England, in November last ; deceased came out as an able seaman, was 23 years of age, and a native of Manchester, England, where he had friends.

Verdict- ” Accidentally drowned. ”

Rookwood cemetery today, 6/1/2021. Paid my respects to-

Senior Constable Samuel Redshaw, #245
Born c1832, Derbyshire, England.
Died 16/8/1886 at Parramatta NSW, cause unknown.
Buried Rookwood, NSW.
His headstone has been vandalised with graffiti.
It also overlooks the “Old Anglican War Lawn Cemetery” which makes it very easy to find.

Grave location:

Old Anglican Section, EE, zone B, plot #183. GPS -33.866970, 151.053185.

That gps will take anyone to his headstone so much so that one can download it to a smart phone with location/gps turned on, fire up google maps and walk to its location on the map. Use it all the time for Rookwood. So accurate that I have stood on top of an unmarked grave. (Posted earlier for an unmarked grave of a Police Officer). Hope this helps.

 

 

Nothing further, than what is recorded above, is known about this man at the time of publication.

Senior Constable Kelly Foster, aged 39, died following a canyoning incident at Mount Wilson yesterday (Saturday 2 January 2021).

Snr Cst Foster attested on 27 August 2010, after which she commenced duties as a probationary constable at Newtown Local Area Command.

She was confirmed as a constable in May 2012.

In May 2014, Snr Cst Foster joined the State Crime Command working as an intel analyst until May 2020.

She was most recently working at Chifley Police District, stationed at Lithgow Police Station.

NSW Police Acting Commissioner Mal Lanyon has extended his condolences to the Foster family on behalf of the NSW Police Force.
“It’s a very sad time for the NSW Police Force and Kelly’s death is a loss to the whole community,” Acting Commissioner Lanyon said.
“To hear reports that Kelly was trying to help another woman when she died demonstrates her commitment to the community she served and the ability to put the needs of others before her own.
“Kelly was a highly regarded and dedicated officer who will be sorely missed by colleagues across the force.
“Her policing career was put on hold when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, however, her strength to survive this and return to work is another testament to her strength and resilience.
“Above all, Kelly was a kind and loving daughter, sister and partner.”

Snr Cst Foster’s family have requested privacy at this time.

Policeman dies in suicide at NSW Police headquarters in Sydney

 

A police officer has taken his own life at the central Sydney offices of NSW Police.

The apparent suicide occurred in an office at the Sydney Police Centre in Surry Hills on Monday morning.

Initial inquiries indicate the man’s death was not suspicious, a spokesperson for NSW Police said, and a report will be prepared for the coroner.

A spokesperson for the Police Association of NSW said the union was aware of the death and would be providing support to those affected.

The death follows a number of suicides among police officers recently, including a senior constable in the New England region.

Police suicides in previous years have prompted discussion about the high-pressure nature of the job and whether officers are adequately supported.

A coronial inquest into the 2013 suicide of a former officer, Ashley Bryant, highlighted the psychological effects of police work, including the stress of constantly being alert to danger and coming into contact with victims of crime.

The inquest found NSW Police was working to help its members deal with the “extreme stressors” they face although more needed to be done.

Earlier this month, the Herald reported concerns held by current and former police officers about the culture inside the force.
