Constable Yorke Hears Last Call

A GALLANT digger, fine comrade and splendid citizen, in the person of Constable J. F. Yorke, ” went west ” at Adamstown quite recently, and Australia is the poorer by his passing.

Son of Mr Robert J. Yorke, a pioneer settler of the Linburn district, deceased spent his early life among us, and won for himself friends among all classes of the community.

When the war drums sounded he, with other young patriots, sprang to arms, and on the other side he did honor to the country which reared him.

As a machine gunner in the 53rd battalion, he fought with the cool courage of a veteran, and returned to Australia with a proud record of service.

The police force then attracted him, and he linked up with the northern branch.

For about 14 years he fulfilled a public duty with the same splendid spirit which characterised his war service, and earned the respect of those among whom he served and the confidence of his officers. The high esteem in which he was held made itself manifest at his funeral, the sad cortege being one of the most impressive seen in the north for many years.

From the War Memorial Institute, Newcastle, marched over 70 members of the police force, including the officer in charge of the division (also representative of the Commissioner). Inspectors Aspery, McAlpine and Davis, and other prominent officials.

A sorrowing widow and six children are left to mourn a devoted husband and father, and their grief is great. His venerable father, who has borne up with great fortitude under the buffetings of adversity, will have the deepest sympathy of the whole district.

Other members of the bereaved family are Mr Stan Yorke (brother). Mrs Drew (sister,. Home Rule), and Mrs B. Pyne (sister, Sydney).

The ” Guardian ” sympathises with the sorrowing family who, however, will. And some consolation in the knowledge that their loved one was held In such universal respect.

Funeral of Constable Yorke

Headed by the band of the 2/35th Battalion, 70 members of the Newcastle police force, led by Constable S. ( Stephen ) Pender, marched yesterday at the funeral of Constable John Frederick Yorke, who died suddenly at his home at Adamstown early on Saturday morning.

The funeral left the Returned Sailors and Soldiers’ Memorial Hall, Perkin-street, yesterday, and proceeded to the Civic railway station, and then to Sandgate Cemetery.

The coffin was draped in the Union Jack.

The chief mourners were the widow, the father, Mr. Robert Yorke, of Linburn, near Mudgee: sisters. Mesdames C. H. Raisin, of Linburn, S. Pyne, of Sydney, Mrs. A. James, mother-in-law, of Home Ride, near Gulgong: Mesdames Esther Simpson. A. James, and Miss T. James sisters-in-law: Mr. Edgar James, brother-in-law of Home Rule; and the Mayor of Paddington (Ald. T. J. Whelan), a close friend.

The pall-bearers were Constables W. S. Brady, H, G. Brady, K. J. Costello. and E. Francis. Detectives E. H. Schumack and C. W. R. McMahon. and Messrs. W. Yates and A. Williams, representing the Adamstown Bowling Club.

Rev. M. M. Redman, of the Church of England, Adamstown, held the graveside service.

The service of the Manchester Unity Independent Order of Oddfellows, of which Constable Yorke had been a member, was read by the Deputy Grand Master ( Bro. G. Kelly ).

Constable Yorke was born at Mudgee 44 years ago.

Death was due to heart trouble and the effects of disabilities sustained at the Great War, where he served three years with the 53rd Battalion.

He is survived by his widow and six children.

Quiet and unassuming, he was popular in the police force which he joined 16 years ago.

He had been stationed at Newcastle for the past 11 years.

Among those present at the funeral were the Officer in charge of the North-Eastern police district (Mr. J. H. White), who represented he Commissioner of Police (Mr. W. J. Mackay): Inspectors J. H. Aspery, A. G. McAlpin. and F. Noble: Messrs. W. Snow, President, and G. Hook, Secretary representing the Friendly Societies’ Association; Mr. J.

Newcastle Morning Herald and Miners’ Advocate (NSW : 1876 – 1954), Wednesday 2 September 1936, page 6

He had been ill for several months.

Born in 1886, Sergeant Stubbs joined the police force in 1908, and had served at many stations.

A widow and grown-up family survive.

He will be buried to-morrow.

A large party of police marched before and after the flag-draped coffin through the city to the railway station and the cortege was headed by the military band of the 2/35th Battalion, with drums draped in crape.

Newcastle Sun (NSW : 1918 – 1954), Tuesday 14 May 1935, page 7



The introduction of police mobile patrols into the Newcastle district in the near future, will spell the doom of the beat system, which has been in existence for many years.

A direct result of the comprehensive reorganisation of the force, which was commenced immediately the new Commissioner of Police (Mr. Mackay) took office, will be the withdrawal of many officers from suburban stations, which will be converted into lock-ups, each attended by a resident constable.

The first step in this direction was taken yesterday when Sergeant Dean, who is at present on extended leave, and Sergeant Stubbs were transferred to Newcastle headquarters, leaving Constable Dawes in charge.

Similar procedure will be followed gradually at many suburban stations.

As the change proceeds Hamilton will become the base for motor cycles and cars, in which policemen and detectives will tour adjoining municipalities.


Call boxes will be established throughout the Newcastle district, from which cruising patrols will report at regular intervals to headquarters. By this means it is hoped to reduce such crimes as housebreaking, as one of the many patrols will be in almost constant touch with headquarters and can be despatched to the scene of a robbery immediately information is received. The quicker moving mobile patrols will make the task of the burglar much more hazardous than hitherto.

It is expected that many of the men will be absorbed in the mobile division, and some others will be transferred to Sydney.

The revolutionary changes to be made are not an experiment. A scheme on the same lines has been put into operation in Sydney, and apparently is giving satisfaction.




Newcastle Sun (NSW : 1918 – 1954), Wednesday 3 January 1934, page 8



The story of a wild scene at Hunter street West police station, in the course of which a police sergeant was kicked in the stomach and had his nose broken by a prisoner, was told at Newcastle Police Court this afternoon.

It was also alleged by a constable, who said he was summoned to the station from an adjoining patrol, that the prisoner hurled a tub at his head.

Thomas Cullen (31), laborer, pleaded not guilty to a charge of having assaulted Sergeant Stubbs, and beaten and otherwise ill-treated him, causing him actual bodily harm, on December 16.

Sergeant Stubbs said that after having arrested Cullen for being drunk, he told him that it had been alleged against him that he had assaulted a man after asking him for sixpence.

Continuing, the sergeant said that when they were within 30 yards of the police station at Newcastle West, Cullen punched him on the head and knocked his cap off.

The sergeant said that he then held down his prisoner by the leg and arm, and asked a passer-by to restore his cap to his head.

Later, while they were going up the steps of the passage way, Cullen kicked him in the stomach.

In the charge room he did the same thing again, so the sergeant, threw him to the floor.

After taking Cullen to a cell, said the sergeant, he was fixing up the prisoner with blankets, when Cullen again kicked him in the stomach and punched his nose, making it bleed.

Subsequently the sergeant was taken by the ambulance to a surgery, and the doctor found his nose was broken.


To Mr. O’Neill (for Cullen), Sergeant Stubbs denied that he had drawn his baton at any stage. The kick was what would be called on the football field a forward kick. He did not know that Cullen had been treated for severe injuries. He had thrown Cullen in the charge room, and he might have been injured while assaulting other men.

Constable Page, of Wickham, said he found the sergeant sitting down dazed, and bleeding from the nose.


” When I went to the cell, ” he added, ” Cullen said he would bash my head in if I came in, the same as he had done to the sergeant. ”

” I asked him to hand over the cell tub, and he rushed across and hurled it at my head. It hit the door as I closed It. ”

To Mr. O’Neill, the constable said that he pulled out his baton before opening the cell door.

Kathleen Trinder’s Complaint. A SULKY IN THE CENTENNIAL PARK. Keith Fullagar Committed.

A young man named Keith Fullagar was before Mr. Payten, at the Central Police Court, on Wednesday lasts to answer the serious charge of having, on the 5th of February, ravished and carnally known one Kathleen Trinder, without her consent. Sergeant Mankey conducted the prosecution, while Mr. Moss appeared tor Fullagar.

Dr. Cedric Bowker said that, at about 10 am on the 6th instant, he examined prosecutrix at the Health Department. He found a couple of bruises, but they were microscopical, arid he could not pass an opinion as to when they were caused. Dr. John Cleland. principal assistant at the Microbiology Bureau, said Constable Lenehan handed him a man’s shirt and a woman’s garment, both of which he examined. On the front of the man’s shirt he found a small stain, and on the woman’s garment stains. The stains on both garments might have been anything from a day to a week old, or more.

Constable Victor Lenehan said, in consequence of something Kathleen Trinder told him, he went to the Continental Cafe, Pitt street, between 1 and 2 a. m., on the 6th instant, and there Saw accused. After warning him that he and Senior Sergeant Drew were police, he asked Fullagar if he knew a girl named Kathleen Trinder, who used to work there, but he denied all knowledge of her. When asked if be took a girl for a drive


he said: ” No, I could not have done that. I was arrested and taken up to Darlinghurst and was there all the morning till dinner-time, so it could not have been me.” Accused was taken before prosecutrix, and witness read over her statement to him, and Kathleen said : ” Yes. every word of that is true, ” while accused only nodded his head. Accused was charged and made no reply. About 11 a.m. on the 6ih; he took Kathleen to the Board of Health, where she was examined by Dr. Cedric Bowker. She handed witness some clothing, which, she said, she was wearing at the time of the alleged offence. Lenehan obtained a shirt from accused, and handed it with the under clothing of Trinder to Dr. John Cleland, of the Department of Microbiology.

At this stage the court was cleared.

Kathleen Trinder, a waitress at the Continental Cafe, Pitt-street, until three months ago, said whilst she was employed there she met a man whom she knew as ‘Ginger,’ and had often seen him since. On the 5th of this month about 9 a.m., he was driving post 441 Elisabeth-street, where she ( Kathleen ) was staying, but, on seeing her at the door, pulled up, and asked her if she would go for a drive to Zetland. She agreed, but after going some distance noticed a sign board with Centennial Park on it, so asked him if this was Zetland.


and made no reply. She then said, ” Oh, my God, this is Centennial Park. ” He

said: ” You’re all right, kid.” He drove a little distance further, then pulled up the sulky, saying he was going to show her a snake he and Tommy Leary had killed the previous day, but, after looking, he said: ” Someone has pinched it. ” He put his hand on her knee, but she knocked it away. She kept resisting him, but finally he dragged her on to the seat of the sulky and accomplished his purpose. She screamed I out, and he said: ” Shut up, you little fool ; you’ll be on your head in a minute.” He asked her to get out on the grass, but she said: ” No, I will not ; there’s some people coming. ” He drove her back as far as the corner of Devonshire and Elizabeth streets, and when in Devonshire-street she asked him if there was


and he said: ” No, kid, you’re all right. ” When he pulled up. he said: ” Good-bye, kid,” She replied, ” Good-bye, ” got out of the sulky, and walked away. It was then a little after 10 ; at 10.30 that night she sent for the police. She went through the form of marriage with a man, but he was already married, so it was null and void. When she returned home, she made a complaint to some of the women.

In answer to Mr. Moss, Kathleen said the sulky was in the bush, and there were not many people about. She did say ; “My God, this is Centennial Park.

” Mr. Moss : Why did you say that? Because once before ! was driven home by a man in a sulky.

Where did you meet him? — He used to come to the Continental Cafe’. What happened on that occasion — the same thing? No Nearly ? – Yes. Did he get you out of the sulky ?— Yes. How long is it since this happened ? — That was before Christmas. Did you know the man long ? — Not long. What time of night did you go out with the man ? — I could not say. Was it before midnight or after?— It was before 10.

Whereabouts in Centennial Park did you go ? – Along the main drive. But didn’t you pull off the main drive ? Yes. Into the bush? No Did you get out of the sulky yourself ? No ; he lifted me. Did you let him lift you ? Yes You did not object ? No What was this man’s name ? – Bert Morris. Did you walk with him after you got out? A little way. Oh, a little way ! Did he assault you? He dropped down and caught me by the arm, and


The park ranger came on the scene didn’t he ? Yes

Isn’t it a fact that he caught you misconducting yourself ? — No. Can you prove it ?

You answer my questions. You did not proceed against him ? — No.

Now, isn’t it a fact that, the park-ranger caught you in the act?— No, and I defy you to say anything to the contrary.

In answer to other questions, Kathleen said she had met Morris since, and spoken to him in a friendly manner.

Mr. Moss: Despite the fact that he attempted to assault you? — He did not attempt anything.

Well, what did he intend to do? (No answer.)

Come on : you have charged this man with a capital charge; do not mince your words. — Morris would have done the same if he could.

Well, then, he attempted to assault you? —Yes.

In answer to other questions, witness said this was not a snake yarn. Accused was intimate with her on the seat of the sulky. She did not know the length of the seat nor the width, but the back, she thought, was about 15 inches. She would not swear it was not six inches high. She went through the form marriage with a man whose name she would not give — but he


She lived with in 1909 in .England. She sent a man named Owen Hegarty, whom she had known since August or September last, for the police, but she did not send him down to accused for the purpose of money from him to square it, nor did she send anyone else. She told Hegarty, Mrs. Male, and Mrs. Bale exactly what took place. She had been at a Mrs. Male’s place for the past three weeks, and had 3s or 4s when she .went there. She was not paying anything for her accommodation. She did not go out every night whilst staying there, and accost men in the street. She never told accused she had slept in a ” brown ” house in Abercrombie street with a man, and that there were bugs in the bed.

Mr. Moss ; Wait a minute, though. In Devonshire street, I mean ? – No, nor in Devonshire street.

Did you sleep in a house there ? – Yes.

Who kept the house? — A Mrs. English. Were there any men in the house ? Two of Mrs. English’s sons and her husband.

Oh, we’ll leave the old man out: Were there any others? — No.

Were there any bugs in the bed? — Yes.

In answer to other question, Kathleen said she bad told Fullagar there were bugs in a bed in which she had slept, but she did not say she slept with a man, nor did she tell him the place was a brothel.

Ann Male, a married woman, living at 441 Elizabeth-street said prosecutrix had been staying with her for some time, and on the 5th went out.

Sergeant Mankey : Did she at some time before noon make a complaint to you?

Mr. Moss: I object. The question cannot be put unless the complaint was made in accused ‘s presence, or within a reasonable time. In this case, the complaint was not made within a reasonable period. She drove all the way from Centennial Park, and never made any complaint until some time before noon.

Mr. Payten ; She could not make a complaint until she arrived home, unless she jumped from the sulky whilst in motion.

The question was allowed, and Mrs. Male said that, on returning home, Kathleen said she was taken down by a young fellow with whom she had been out.

Under cross-examination by Mr. Moss, witness said that it was about 12 when the complaint was made to her. Kathleen had been staying with her about three weeks, and had


the last payment being made on Tuesday week last.

At that stage the Court adjourned until 2 p.m.

On resuming, at the request of Mr. Moss, Kathleen; was back in the box, and, in answer to questions, said after the alleged offence she saw Morris and accused passing, and waved to them. She was discharged from the Continental, but it was not on account of carrying on with men there. She was not in Leary’s stables after Bert Morris tried to ravish her, but on one occasion she went to the stables to see some ponies. She told Mrs. Morris a man had been intimate with her in England when she was 11 years of age.

Mr. Moss: You heard Mrs. Male swear that you paid her 5s per week, and you swore that you were not paying her anything. Who is telling the truth, you or her ? – I do not know.

Were you telling us something that was wrong? — No.

Mr. Payten: One of you must be wrong. Did you pay per anything or not? — I have not paid her anything. Constable Walter Asquith said on the 15th of this month, he arrested accused, about 20 minutes to 12,


Fullagar, who said that he was not guilty and reserved his defence, was. committed to take his trial at the ‘Quarter Sessions on March 3, Bail was allowed, self and one surety in £150, or two in £75.
