TPer Press Association.! WELLINGTON, Nov. 20. Since the discovery of Hawthorne's mnrder, it has been suggested that Laidley, who disappeared some months ago, may have met a similar fate, and it is stated that a cheque, said to have been presented in Wellington by Laidley, did not bear his signature. This cheque, however, was not Laidloy's, and it was never stated by the authorities that it was his. It was a cheque drawn by a Wellington tradesman, and the man who presented it merely endorsed it in the name of Harrison, stating at the same time that he was really Laidley. The endorsement >is in Laidley's writing. Several persons who knew the missing man recognised him on a steamer going to Sydney, and added some details, which, if true, are quite sufficient to explain his disappearance. A relative of Mrs Laidley, who went to Sydney, could not, however, find any trace of the missing man.
