    LATROBE, Monday. - Theusual quietude of the Sassafras district, nine miles from Latrobe, was considerably disturbed this afternoon by the report that an elderly man named Francis Thow had been shot dead. Unfortunately the report proved to be well founded. The first information that the police received of the occurrence was tins morning, when Edward Carey (37); a farm laborer residing at the Plains, Sassafras, walked into the Latrobe Police
    Station and informed Constable Stingel that he had been participant in a family quarrel and had shot his father-in-law, Francis Thow, dead. Carey was
    locked up, and Sergeant Court proceeded to the residence of Thow, which adjoins that of Carey, he found that the statement made by Carey was true, and on his return to Latrobe a charge of willful murder was preferred against accused. Sub-Inspector Brown and Detective Sergeant Devon were then communicated with and commenced further investigations in readiness for the
    inquest, which is to be held to-morrow. It is understood that, Carey made a statement to the police to-night, the nature of which, however, could not be ascertained. Later particulars show that Thow, who was 69 years of age, was shot in the chest with a shot gain. From the facts available it appears that Carey and Thow were on bad terms, and Carey had it is
    alleged, previously stated his intention of 'doing for' Thow, who resided a mile apart. Carey walked from his home carrying a gun, and an argument ensued through a window, Mrs Thow having previously locked the door. It is alleged Carey burst the door in and shot Thow on the right side, and then inserting another cartridge, shot the wounded man through the heart. The tragedy occurred in the presence of Mrs Thow." During his trial Carey accused his victim of interfering with his wife, and of fathering her first child when she was 14.
