The New Plymouth Murder.

l New Plymouth, April 16. A New Plymouth telegram last night informed us that the police have discovered a ( clue in the murder case of great importance, and they are now confident of being abtato prove that the Maori now in custody committed the murder. It appears the boots which the prisoner wore when arrested have been identified as belonging'to the murdered man. Deceased purchased them from the Co-operative Store, and afterwards had the heels partly taken off. The man who made the altera r tion in the boots can identify them beyond a doubt. Accused states that he purchased the boots at a store in Opunake, and the police are prepared to prove that he did not. The police are accumulating other evidence of a damaging character and there is now little doubt that they have got the right man in custody.
