THE PORT MELBOURNE MURDER. Melbourne. October 14. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
THE PORT MELBOURNE MURDER. Melbourne. October 14. The Cabinet to-day had under consideration &nbsp; the case of the unfortunate woman Emma Williams, condemned to death for the murder of her little boy at Port Melbourne.

An application will be made as to how the matter should be proceeded with.
