A SYDNEY CAWARD.
(MB FRSSS ASSOCIATION.)
Chicago, September 20 Only four jurors m Dr Oronin's case have at present passed unchallenged by either side,
avDNRY, September 21 The v Telegraph " this morning states that a man implicated m tho murder of Dr Cronin was a passenger from San Francisco by tho MariDosa, which arrived here on Wednesday night. The police, it appears, received a cablegram from the American police authorities, ordering them to watch passengers, and offering a reward of 25,000 dollars for the arrest of
the suspected person. Upon the arrival of the steamer detectives went on board
to make a search, and upon their approach the suspected individual locked his cabin door, and declined to oome out. When ordered by the detectives to do so he
threatened to shoot anyone breaking m, and remained m a state of siege till Thursday, when he succeeded m eluding the vigilance of the officers and escaped. Sydney, September 22
The « Daily Telegraph's " story of the man impljcatecji m Dr Cronin's murder arriving here is a canard. It appears that the detectives' went on board the Bteamer m search of an absconder. and wished to see a passenger who ta.d acted m rather an eccentrip manner during the voyage, and when he saw the police officorß he retreated to liis cabin, and threatened to shoot them if interfered with. Tho passenger m question remained m the cabin for some
time, and eventually reached the shore, having successfully eluded the vigilanoe of the police.
