Tragedy near Charters Towers. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 2 February 1904
Tragedy near Charters Towers. ALBERT CLARKE last Thursday evening approached Mrs. Oliver and sister Alice Williams, aged 20, at Exley Siding, near Charters Towers. He asked the girl to speak to him, and she refused to do so. He said, " I will- soon make you," and shot her in the face and through the lungs. He then ran away about 150yds and killed himself by shooting himself through the head. Miss Williams' condition is very critical, and very little hope is entertained of her recovery. Clarke had been paying attentions to Miss Williams, but she declined to receive them. Both were respectable people. Clarke was 28 years old.
