THE KELLY GANG
A SALVATIONIST'S REMINISCENCES
SYDNEY, Sunday.—At a meeting of the Salvation army at Lithgow one of the converts, James Skillion, related his experiences as a "bush telegraph" in connection with the depredations of the Kelly gang. He said that his brother William married Maggie Kelly, eldest sister of Ned Kelly. In subsequent conversation he said that when the bank at Euroa was stuck up and robbed the proceeds were divided among 100 sympathisers. From the proceeds of different robberies Skillion says he received £3,000, and spent it in travelling through America and Great Britain with Kate Kelly and Kate Byrne, a sister of Joe Byrne.
