The Dunedin Still.

Some rather startling evidence has come into the hands of the Dunedin police in regard to the still recently discovered in Walker street. Donnelly the man arrested, has ail along pleaded that he was innocent, that he had only been engaged for another job for a few hours and was then asked to attend to the fire when he was pounced upon. It now appears as if his story was quite true. A man was sent down from Wellington some time ago to act as informer in such cases after hunting them up. Finding stills were scarce commodities he fixed upon the idea of putting one up and engaged a man to do so. When all was ready Donnelly was engaged for a few hours and then the police were put upon the track, the idea no doubt being that in case of conviction and fine the two men would share what would be given to the informer. To-day the police arrested two men, Waters and Stewart, for being concerned in the affair. It is stated that they had gone to Invercargill to arrange a similar trap.
