Jones's Hotel, the last refuge of the hunted outlaws, is a common country publichouse about a hundred yards from the Glenrowan railway station. It is of the kind common all over the country—wooden walls, shingle roof,
a verandah in front, a kitchen behind. It stood on its own isolated allotment of ground, and, consequently, was easily surrounded. The siege on this place began shortly before four o'clock in the morning, and was kept up until soon after three in the afternoon. Senior-constable Chas. Johnson, of Violet Town, at a given signal then approached the hotel, and fired it with a bundle of straw on the west side. The place was soon ablaze, but the ocupants it was intended to dislodge were dead probably long before, and only their scorched bodies were dragged out of the burn- ing building. In a very short time only a few uprights, the chimneys, a sign-post and a mass of charred wood remained to tell where once tho hotel stood. The ruins are shown in our illustration, and some idea may be formed of its appearance and relation to the surrounding houses from the bird's-eye view of the town- ship of Gleiirowan given on another page. The first to enter the burning building was the Rev. M. Gibney, a Roman Catholic priest, from Perth, Western Australia, his intention being to do whatever he could for the dying men, Daniel Kelly and Stephen Hart.
