MRS. DEIN'S OPINION. DEPRIVED OF MAINTENANCE. A PUBLIC MOVEMENT STARTED. Sydney. October 9. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
MRS. DEAN'S OPINION. DEPRIVED OF MAINTENANCE. A PUBLIC MOVEMENT STARTED. Svdnev. October 9. i s&ince-the apprehension of Dean Mrs. Dean's means- of support have vanished and she has :been -forced to give-up her cottage at Surrey Hills.. A mechanic named Johnstone, how ever, gave -hospitable shelter to her and her mother and saved them from utter destitu tion. Mrs. Dean was interviewfd at his place last night. She and her mother expressed profound satisfaction at the confession of Georce Dean as finally clearing their characters of the foul stain. Mrs. Dean could give no explanation of why Dean should have tried to poiBon her. ' Was he then very fond of youf ' asked the reporter. 'He must have been,' she answered, 'or else be would not have poisoned me.' This was probably the sort of flippancy which the magis trate (Mr. Giles) so 'severely condemned many months ago, but Mrs. Dean is sure that there must have been another woman in the case somewhere.

DEAN'S POSITION. Sydney. October 9. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
DEAN'S POSITION. -~ Svdnev. October 9. ? It is a matter of some legal cohtroversy whether Dean can now be charged with an attempt to murder by poison on a date diffe rent from that upou which his original convic tion was founded. This would permit the whole case to be retried and put Dean in danger of suffering the extreme penalty of the law. This ? course seems, however, hard]y likely to be adopted. There is one other method by which Dean could be brought within tiio range of the punishment which he deserves. After his release by the Royal Commission the Royal pardon under seal was conveyed to him in order to restore to him the rights of citizenship. The question is if that pardon will hold good in view of the fact that it was avowedly obtained by ' fraud A Royal grant, can be revoked by a writ scirc facias if, it is discovered to have.' been ob-. tained by false pretences. ' The q'uestionia whether Royal pardons stand on the same basis. Several eminent lawyers of the city are at p...
MR. CRICK INTERVIEWED. Sydney, October 9. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
MR. CRICK INTERVIEWED. Sydney, October 9. Mr. Crick when interviewed late tonight said he wished to point out that some things in JJc.in'a confession were untrue. The man Green was never in the employ of his firm in any capacity whatever. Further, said Mr. Crick, since Dean states that he only con fessed his guilt to Sir. Meagher after his conviction a«id reprieve, he must be a bit out when he says 'All alonpr I denied my guilt at the instigation of Mr. Meagher.' Mr. Crick added — 'So far as I am concerned the matter is now ended.' Mr. Meagher was interviewed and said practically the same regarding the confession. This morning a large and influential deputation asked him to stand ajain for Phillip division and his reply was ' Irrevocably no.'
