THE TE AROHA MURDER.
Remand of the,Accused. His Counsel Threatened with Violence. (By Telegraph. ) Gkahamsiown, To-day. This morning, at the Resident Magistrate’s Court, before Messrs. Murray and Skene, J’s.P., John Procoffy was charged with the wilful murder of Himiona Haere, at Te Aroha. The police applied for a remand until Thursday. Mr. Brassey, who appeared for the accused, said, as there was not evidence to show a prima facie case against the prisoner, he objected to the remand. The Bench granted the remand, stating that as Mr. Kenrick had begun the case, he could continue it. Mr. George Nathaniel Brassey, the solicitor for the accused man, Procofly, has been threatened with violence if he defends the prisoner. The intimation was conveyed to him from Piuha, a chief of the Ngahiko tribe.
