The land was situated near the Gowrie-Highfields roads and consisted of 11 acres under cultivation, the rest being fenced into 2 acre lots. Did this land belong to this Henry Kahler?

  • At the age of 30 years, Johann Jost Joseph Kahler married Marie Louise Schmaling, daughter of Christian Frederick Schmaling and Caroline Muller, on 28 May 1867 in Queensland.
  • Johann Jost Joseph Kahler was present at the arrest of John Alexander Herrlich for the murder of Johann (Michael) Klein on 10 February 1870 in Cedar Scrub. The Darling Downs Gazette reported:- : "John Alexander Herrlich was brought up at the Police Court on Tuesday last, charged with the wilful murder of Michael Klein at the Cedar Scrub, near Perseverance Station, on the 12th day of February last. The prisoner appeared to be suffering from extreme exhaustion, and was accommodated with a seat during the examination. Sub-Inspector Harris conducted the case for the Crown.
    Acting Sub-Inspector McCarthy said he apprehended the prisoner between 10 and 11 o'clock at night on Friday, the 8th April last, at a house on the Highfields road, about twelve miles from Toowoomba ; produced the warrant, and said to prisoner- "The charge against yon is that, on the 12th day of February last, you did unlawfully kill one Michael Klein near the Cedar Scrub at Perseverance Station ;" prisoner paused for a few seconds, after which he said, "I came to these people to give myself up ;" witness brought him next day to Toowoomba, and confined him in the watch house. By the Bench: I arrested the prisoner between 10 and 11 o'clock at night at Jost Kahler's house on the Highfields road ; four other men were present, namely, Murray, Heinrich Kahler, Jost Kahler, and another German, whom he (witness) did not know. Examination by Mr Sub-inspector Harris continued: On 12th April witness and Acting-Sergeant Shea proceeded again to Highfields, and saw the gun now produced taken from beneath some bark at the rear of Heinrich Kahler's house and in close proximity to where the prisoner was apprehended; believed the gun to be loaded in both barrels, as the nipples were capped and the ramrod would not go down the whole length of the barrel ; could not at present say what the barrels contained. The Court adjourned for a few minutes in order to give Sergeant Shea sufficient time to draw the charges, but as the operation occupied the court some considerable period, the gun was taken to the watch-house, and subsequently unloaded in the presence of McCarthy. The Police Magistrate having read over the evidence of the previous witness, inquired of the prisoner whether he had any intention to ask questions, and the prisoner replied that the only questions he would ask would be put in the Court. Catherine Frances Ambrose, daughter of Mrs. Kynock of Perseverance Station, said she had known the prisoner for some time past ; remembered seeing him at his hut in the Perseverance Scrub about December last, and had a convention with him in reference to the Kleins ; he said, "When will the Kliens be out again,'' and witnessed answered, "They will be out next week ;" prisoner then remarked, "If I catch them taking away any more of my cedar, this time by God I will shoot him ;" Michael and George Klein were the only persons taking cedar from the scrub at that time, and to the best of her belief she thought he intended to shoot Michael Klien: knew the gun produced, having seen it frequently in the prisoner's possession; know it particularly by the stock, as the witness lent him the tools to make it with ; had no doubt whatever that the gun belonged to the prisoner; saw the dead body of Michael Klien being conveyed from the scrub in a spring cart on the Sunday after the murder. William Kane said that in the month of January last he was in the employment of Mrs Kynoch, of Perseverance Station; was sent to the Cedar Scrub at that time by Mrs Kynoch for a load of cedar, and saw the prisoner; when he first came up to witness he said, "You knock off; I will not allow any person to take that cedar; I have been down to Ipswich and received legal advice to arrest any teams that come to the scrub to take away cedar." Witness told him that he had received an authority from Michael Klein to take away a load; and he replied, '" will not allow Michael Klein or any other person to take cedar from there, and if Michael Klein docs so I have advice what to do, and I will do it if I swing by the neck the next minute." Michael Klein was a carrier working at the scrub about that time, and witness had seen him removing timber on several occasions previous to the time now mentioned; saw the body of Michael Klein lying dead in a cart, when it was being brought from the Cedar Scrub, about nine or ten weeks ago; knew prisoner quite well, and seldom, if ever, saw him without a gun; believed the gun now produced to be the one usually carried by the prisoner. Dr Roberts said that about 2 o'clock on the morning of the 13th of February last he held a post mortem examination on the body of a man named Michael Klein, at the Perseverance Cedar Scrub ; the body was quite cold having been some time dead; on the right side of the lower part of the breast bone there was a gun-shot wound ; the edges were blackened with gunpowder, and the charge had entered the body by this wound ; it had then carried away a portion of the heart, passed through the right lung, and out at a second wound in the back, between the blade bone and the right side of the spine ; the wound in the back was slightly above the wound in the breast ; the effect of such a wound would be instantaneous death ; the wound might have been caused by a bullet, or a charge of shot discharged at very close quarters, and from the appearance of the wound witness would say that the shot must have been fired within two feet of the body; the deceased was a remarkably healthy looking man. Terence McCall said he was a carrier, residing at Highfields, and on the 12th day of February last he was getting cedar from the Perseverance Scrub; knew the prisoner, and saw him about 1 o'clock on the afternoon of that day passing through the scrub; he was then carrying a gun the same as that now produced; witness had often seen the gun in prisoner's possession. Constable McCafferty said that he accompanied Dr Roberts to the Perseverance Scrub, on the night of the 12th February last, and on the morning of the next day, between I and 2 o'clock, Dr Roberts made a post mortem examination on the body of a man named Michael Klein; witness assisted in removing the clothing from the body, which he now p[roduced, as well as a number of bullets received from the Police Magistrate a few days afterwards. On the application of Mr Sub-Inspector Harris the further hearing of the case was adjourned to Thursday, at 10 o'clock."

  • The following article appeared in the The Darling Downs Gazette on 30 July 1870. "WEDNESDAY, JULY 27TH. Before His Honor Mr Justice Lutwyche.
    ON the re-opening of the Court this morning, His Honor said he was gratified to say that there was no civil business for adjudication at this assize, and consequently the gentlemen of the special jury would be immediately discharged from attendance on the Court. The criminal business was then resumed, and the jury sworn on the previous day having answered to their names. James Alexander Herrlich was put upon his trial, charged with feloniously killing one Michael Klien, at the Cedar Scrub near Perseverance Station, on Saturday, the 12th day of February last, and Joseph Kahler was charged in the same indictment with being an accessory after the fact. (The evidence of the witnesses for the prosecution, and also for the defence, appeared in our issue of the 26th instant] His Honor wished to know from the Crown Prosecutor whether he intended to press the charge of feloniously harbouring against the prisoner Kahler after hearing the evidence of the witnesses Murray and Sims given on the previous day. Mr Paul, on behalf of the Crown, said it was his intention to withdraw the charge against Kahler. His Honor then directed the jury to return a verdict of not guilty against Joseph Kahler, and the prisoner, was discharged from custody."
