Place: Scone
Source: The Scone Advocate 22 February 1921
Details: Assigned to Dr. Bowman of Muswellbrook. Charged before Edward Denny Day with neglect of duty and harboring a bushranger. William Davies deposes - Prisoner is placed under my care and is employed as a watchman. On the 21st of last month I went to prisoners station and found that he was harboring a bushranger there. I cautioned him against harboring men and that if I found him doing so again I should take him to Court. He replied with an oath that he did not care for all the flogging in the country. He added that any men who came to the station should be welcome to stop as long as they liked and that he was glad to see them. He was grossly insolent at the same time making use of blasmephous language which he is in the habit of doing. On, I think, the 24th prisoner absented himself from his station without leave, and neglected to remove his folds. Guilty of insolence and nelgect of duty and sentenced to 50 lashes. Remanded to Muswellbrook on the charge of harboring a bushranger
