THE MURDER AT BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 10 October 1857

THE MURDER AT BALLAN. On Monday last the accused man was brought to Ballarat, and has been lodged in gaol to await his trial at the next Circuit Court. His name is John Mason, alias Thomas Docker. There has been no coroner's inquest held; but the prisoner has been ex- amined before the Ballan Bench. As the evidence mostly consisted of Trooper Boyle's statement, we are enabled to supply the main facts of this horrible tragedy. On Thursday, October the 1st, a man named Garkin, a splitter, in the Jim Crow Forest, called at the Ballan Police Station to say that a man had been murdered on the Jim Crow Road. Boyle and another trooper immediately started off in the direction pointed out, and about eight miles from Ballan they came upon a splitter's hut in the heart of the Jim Crow Forest. There they found the prisoner Mason sitting down with his hands tied behind him, in charge of two men, who were watching him. This was out- side the hut. Mr. Boyle then went into the hut, where he saw the...
