CAMP LIFE. VAGRANT BOYS ON THE LOOSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 31 March 1894

Camp Life. VAGRANT BOYS ON THK LOOSE. E.irly on Sunday morni \g the Melbourne police made a raid upon a street urchins' encampment at the rear of Princes bridge station yard. A sort of wurley, composed of some old canvas, a few big stones, three or four old pieces of timber, and several sheets of battered yralvnised iron, had been erected, and huddled together inside of it without any bedding or shred of covering were found nine boys, whoso ages varied from 10 to 16 years. All of them were poorly clad, and one of them was iu a state of tags that was little removed from sheer nuddy. None of the occupants of the shelter had any money, but there was a. plentiful supply of bread and about half a pound of butter, so there was no immediate danger of starvation. All tho lads are known to the police as newsboys, and they ar. seldom out of the streets. All of them save one h-ive homes to which they might go if the nomad life of I he streets hid not so much attraction for them. The youths dis...

On the Track of a Crime. THE DEAD DOG AND THE INFANTI CIDE CASE. THE DETECTIVES HOAXED. A man employed at the Sanitary Depot rushed into the Police Station on Tuesday last and reported that he believed he had a clue to the murderer or murderers of the infant whose body was found floating in the river at the rear of the slaughter yards on Good Friday afternoon. Of course such a gentleman was accorded a hearty welcome, and to the detectives and officers present lie unfolded his tale. Ho stated that, two evenings prior to the dis covery of the body he eaw a man and woman whom he knew standing about the spot where the body was found, and in fact was in conversation with them ; that immediately after leaving them he heard a dull, sickening splash as of some substance being thrown into the water, of which he took little notice at the time.
