( From the " H-erald.' ') "John Henry Sparks,'" called Ser geant T. Ahern. at the Cithy Court on Saturday, and in response a thick-set, middle-aged man with clearn-shaven face stepped forward.

THE SUSPECTED GAOL-BREAKER [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 6 January 1914
THE SUSPECTED GAOL-BREAKER Thy man who gave the name of Ed ward O'Neill, who was arrested at Ornmeo on Sunday week on suspicion he was John HTenry Sparks. who broke caol at Pentridce in July, 1901, was brought to Melbourne by Constable Whittey on Friday night. and lodged in the Russell-street lock-up. O'Neil persists that he is not Sparks, and that he was never In Rutherglen. where occurred the rob bery from a mine manager for which :parks received 12 years" imprison mont. The accused is well known in G ippsland. and the fact that he was making an honest living for his wife and four children on ground that was trearded as too barrenl to be produc tive of any kind of produce, has led his neighbors to the belief that he is not the crininal the police allege. The warder who went from Pent ridge to Omeo to identify the arrest ed man was-unnable to swear that he was Sparks. The latter had several prominent moles about his body, but none could be found on O'NeillI. The accused man has a l...
