The Hallarat Tragedy The execution of James Johnston, who murdered his wife and four children, and attempted to take his own life by swallowing poison, in December last, took place in the Ballarat Gaol on Monday morning.

Jones -then assisted him to rise, and partially supported his weight while adjusting the rope and cap. Johnston who recognised those on the gallery, nodded in fare w...
