ROBBERY WITH VIOLENCE AT OAKLEIGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887

ROBBERY WITH VIOLENCE AT   OAKLEIGH.     Between 8 and 9 o'clock on Tuesday night a premeditsted robbery, accompanied by gross violence, was conmmitted upon Mr Robert Ellett, rate collector to the   shire of Oakleigh. The affair occasioned   much excitement at Oakleigh, and very   general regret was expressed for the suf-   ferer, who has held the position of rate collector for many years past. It seems that Mr Ellett, who is 61 years of age and not a very strong man, was going home from the township of Oakleigh, and when within a quarter of a mile of his place a young man jumped up from behind an acacia tree and struck him a terrific blow on the head with a heavy stick. The blow was repeated several times, and Mr Ellett sank bleeding and nearly uncon- scions to the ground. In despair he said to his assailant, "Rob me but don't mur- der me." The fellow paid no attention to this pathetic appeal...

Novelist. DAYS OF CRIME AND YEARS OF SUFFERING --------♦-------- AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. Reprinted from "The Australasian" of 1867 by special permission.) CHAPTER XXXVII.—(Continued.) "First, gentlemen, you will say that his identity has been sworn to. But there is a question which should be antecedent to this—Could the witnesses, under the circumstances, really identify? Here is the case. A robbery is committed. The robbers are artistically disguised; every precaution which the intuitive fear of con- scious guilt could suggest to evade detec- tion is adopted; their faces are artfully concealed, and doubtless the same subtlety would be extended to their speaking in assumed tones; they have neither cloven feet nor hump-backs; and yet the wit- nesses pretend to identify. It is true, they say, to the best of their belief; but this belief can only be akin to Scripture faith—the evidence of things not seen, and that in this court is not the evidence required. "I dare say, gentlemen, that most ...
