[per press association J
New Plymouth, May 14,
After 2 p.m. the evidence of the witness Wilson was continued. "He withdrew all the statements he had made to the police about seeing Maloney on Friday, as he found he had made a mistake. It was on Thursday the events occurred of which he told the police, but he was certain that he saw Maloney on Friday all the same. The witness refused to state what business he carried on formerly in Wellington. He is now a scissors-grinder. He also declined to say whether he had ever been known under a different name. He swore on his oath he did not know his name, nor did he know his father. New Plymouth, May 15. , Albert Wilfon, son of the previous witness, gave corroborative evidence as to seeing and talking with Mahi between eleven and twelve on the Friday the" murder was committed ; that time being fixed by the police when accused was supposed to have committed, the deed. None of the witnesses, although severally cross-examined by the Crown Prosecutor as to their credibility, have been shaken in their evidence, and it is evident now that Maloney was seen alive at one o'clock on the day of the murder by two witnesses.
