POISON SUSPECTED.

DEATH OF A STATION ACCOUNTANT.  

A CINGALESE ARRESTED.  

Perth. -.Monday.

In November last Percy Tomkiss,   employed as accountant Milly Milly station, died in the Cue hospital under suspicious circumstances. On Satur-   day Jimmy Callo, a Cingalese, formerly cook at Milly Milly station, was arres- ted, on a charge of' having threatened last year to murder Harry Luttmnn. Portion of a bottle of whisky, some of which Tomk√≠ss was known to have   taken shortly before he became ill, has     been found, on analysis, to contain some crude arsenical preparation, such as might be used in a sheep dip. Tom kiss' body will be exhumed, to ascer- tain if death was. due to poison. The circumstances of the case in which   Callo is charged witlh having threatened to kill Luttman are not yet available.
