«. [by telegraph.] Oamaru, To-day. Alexander Beattie was formally charged at the Magistrate’s Court to-day with the murder of. Sarah Adams, whose body was found in a creek at Papakaio on Sunday. He was remanded, at the request of the police, for a week, till after the inquest on the body of the unfortunate woman. The police will not give any information, but from what fell from Sergeant-Major Thompson in the Court, the inference is that the woman did not die of drowning, and that there has been foul play. He said very plainly that he had evidence that the woman had been killed by some person, but declined to go further. A post mortem examination was held yesterday, and probably Sergeant-Major Thompson’s remarks were based on discoveries made thereat.
