The Derming and Butler atrocities
were about becoming matters for oc-
cassional reference when the people
discovery of the corpse of a
woman floating in the waters of
the Yarra River, near Melbourne,
and followed upon by the sickening
details of what is known as the
'Gatton horror' In the Yarra case a
young woman of presentable appear-
ance, has evidently been got rid of in
order to avoid a coming trouble, the
medical evidence showing that she
was enciente. Surely there must be
someone whose suspicions would be
aroused by the sudden disappearance
of a female acquaintance. She did not
drop from the clouds, nor come out of
the ocean,.and must up to the time of
her death have lived in some place
where other people would see her and
and notice her abrupt departure. Yet
the offer of a liberal reward has not
loosened a tongue to establish the
identity of the vicctim, or give any
clue as to how she came to be found
bound up and floating down the
muddy Yarra. The failure also of the
police to trace the brute or brutes in-
human form who perpetrated the
horrible atrocity of murdering, for
other purpose than gain, an inoffen-
sive and respectable young man, and
outraging two defenceless girls comes
as a shock to people who believed
that they lived in a state of civilization
under which either the protection
of the law is sufficient to prevent
such a crime, or that speedy detection
of the perpetrator would surely fol-
low. In both surmises they would be
wrong, and it is now becoming some-
what doubtful whether the facts of
either the terrible tragedies will be
brought to light. Twelve or fourteen
years ago an old woman living by
herself almost in the town of Forbes,
and known to have a considerable
sum of money, which she always
carried about her person, was bru-
tally murdered, and her money taken.
Some 18 or 20 gashes inflicted with
an axe, and a fatal stab wound were
confirmed by the doctor, who made
the post mortem. The body of the
victim was still warm when the
crime was discovered. Yet no one
ever paid the penalty due to such a
terrible deed, and unless the mur-
derer chose to give up his or her
guilty secret before going out of the
world, there is no likihood of the
facts ever becoming known. If
such crimes can be committed in our
midst, and go unpunished, it will be
necessary for some more effectual
way of checking the movements of
people to be adopted.
