CHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 9 November 1878

CHIPS.         Those four wretches ! cold blooded villains, indeed ! May they soon fall, either into the hands of the police, or riddled with balls! For in the history of the fair land of our adoption, with its long list of bushrangers, the names of those who have gone before, must, for cowardly brutality, and inhuman butchery pale indeed before the name of " Kelly." Hanging they say is too good for such wretches. True, but remember no death is so ignominious, my friends, as that; therefore may they be taken alive, in order that if there should still remain one single spark of manhood in their wretched carcasses, they may suffer some hours of fearful remorse and dreadful suspense ere the hangman's duty is performed. As a Protestant I see with joy and gladness that our Bishop and the Rev. BMr Snndiford attended the funeral of poor Kennedy, the service being conducted by Fattier Scanlan ! Good I All honor to you both, gentlemen This ...

THE POLICE MURDERS.   From the Melbourne papers we, urnish our readers with the following items of news. The excitement has in no way abated, and all information refer- ring to the outlaws is eagerly sought for and the papers read out to small groups of anxious listeners upon the arrival of the mail at Alexanrdra:- BENALLA, Tuesday. A special party of men who have. been in reserve for several days have just been ordered up the line. It is the impression of the police that the Kellys are still in the ranges north- east of this place. It has been ascertained that they have endeavoured to pass themselves off as police, with the assistance of the handcuffs and revolvers they got at the Wombat, but their youth and looks ought to be against them. One of Strahan's party arrived from Mansfield to-day. They worked the ranges from the Wombat to the head of the west branch of the King, going along the top of the range. They were out for four days and had a good deal of wet weather...

That such a state of things is possible can only be attributed to the fact that the felons are so well acquainted with the locality in which they are hiding, being as it is almost impassable, and also that they must have a large number of. sympathisers. who convoy them provisions and keep them well informed as to the move. monts of those who are seeking to secure their capture.
