AN AUSTRIAN’S SUICIDE
The suicide bv shooting in the left r lung of Frank Pavlovich, a native of - Herzegovina, at Mangawharo (Dargat ville) on Saturday night produced a f somewhat sensational sequel. From a '■ Croatian's evidence at the inquest vesr terday it appears that some Britishers chased the deceased on W 7 ednesday, owing to Pavlovich and another compatriot having obtain.;;l a county road 'ontract. It was admitted that some Austrians, who were not naturalised, 5 vere working on various Croatians’ 1 road contracts. A semi-disguised feel--1 ing of enmity on the part of the ’ Britishers has been apparent since the 13 cumdiggors wore taken on other work. The police were instructed by the i Coroner to inquire further- into the r charges of threats by Britishers, and ‘ the inquest was adjourned. There is also simmering discontent owing to ( foreigners bemg employed on the Kaihu railway extension works.
