No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 13 June 1876

THE proceedings connected with the prosecution of the firm of L. STEVEN SON and SoNs are worthy of comment, in fact they require full and ample criticism, so that the public may be able to judge properly on several points con nected with the affair. The prose cution appears to be conducted in a veryfaint-hearted manner by tle Crown. M?r. O'LoosHLEN is left day after day to contend againstlfeassrs. PUwEVE, MOLES WoavRT, and WILsIAMas, three of the most celebrated barristers in the colony. They are continually interrupting or making remarks of a frivolous nature, for the sole purpose of annoying" Mr. O'LoGoLEN, and diverting his mind from the point at issue. It is easily and plainly to be seen that Mr. O'LOGusEN is overweighted in this mat ter, yet no attempt is made by the Crown to afford h-im any assistance. An important witness named HENRTY, upon whose evidence great value was set by the Crown, was allowed to depart for England by the steamship Nforth umberland on Saturday last, wi...
