Murray Kevern, the levanting bank clerk of Marton, who was run down at Melbourne the other day, is a cool hand. On Constable Coyle, of Marton, meeting Kovern in the Melbourne Detective otlice, he came forward and shook hands inquiring. “ How are you Coyle, and how is Mr. Coodall ? (the Inspector).” He said “I saw you pair of beggars standing at the corner the day I cleared out. Don’t you remember 1 I was going into the Bank of Australasia to get some money, and I thought you were both discussing running me in at the time.” On the way to the watchhouso Coyle said “ It’s a pity you left Marton,” and prisoner replied “ 1 was advised by Russel to clear out, or if I did not you would collar me.” On the 11th August, while they were on board the Arawata, Kevern asked if he would bo put to work on the roads if he was convicted in Wanganui. Coyle said “No ” that as he was a good clerk he might get a staff billet. Kevern thereupon observed that perhaps all the staff billets would be taken up, and added : “If they put me on the roads I would make a bolt of it, but if they give me a staff billet I would remain as long as they like to keep me. ” Accused was committed for trial, bail being accepted—himself iniLoOO, and two suereties in L 250.
