The Alleged Murder at Gisborne.

[per press association.]

At the present time Httle^nwWd or the circumstances which give cause for suspicion against Wiru Black of murdering Robt. Streeter, whose disappearance took place in *:i March last. Trisdner, Streeter, and two others were engaged m a fencing contract on Foster's Station, and their camp was m a rough bit of country, eight miles from the homestead. There was ill feeling between the two men on account of the attention plid by Black to Streeter's wife. One Sunday, as two of the camp mates were leaving for Whatatu for'stores, Streeter and Black left the camp to go shooting, bat Hack returned without Streeter, and m reply to questions' said they had quairrejled, and the latter had taken .the.huffi;and cleared out. Since that time, Black has been several times m town, and has lived with Mrs Streeter as man and wife, wearing the dead man's clothes. Since the disappearance was .reported, strict enquiries have been made but no trace has been found* of Streeter, and it is most unlikely that he could come awtiy from the place without calling at places en route. Enquiries are being made by every police station throughout the colony for Streeter, and to-morrow a search party will scour the country m the vicinity of the camp m the hope of coming across human remains. Black was some time ago charged with criminally assaulting an old Maori woman of ninety, who, however, condoned the offence. ' '• ? ?
