... part of the KellyGang story

(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT)
Richard Hart was brought up at the Echuca Police Court this morning, charged with highway robbery, and remanded to Sandhurst, whither he has been sent.
The wool season has now closed, and the quantity of wool brought to Echuca by water is larger than ever. In all over 91,000 bales of river-borne wool have reached Echuca, or 7,000 bales more than last year. A great deal of wool is still left on the Darling frontages and the Murrumbidgee and Lachlan back country. In the case of the Darling wool, the river is too low to permit of its transportation steamers, and in the other two cases the scarcity of water along the tracks prevents the teams from travelling, as the bullocks drop down and die from the heat.
