  • Notes 
    • James Moran was committed to Seacliff Lunatic Asylum in March 1898 on the grounds that he was dangerous to his family, after a fall from a horse some years previously. This was told to Bernard O'Neill by his mother, later confirmed by his father, and subsequently researched by Bernard. National Archives in Dunedin holds letter written to Dr Truby King at Seacliff by James's son JP Herlihy asking for news of his father.

      Robbery from the Person.-Thomas Robertson and Henry Parnell were charged, on remand, with having, on the 26th September, at Dunedin, stolen from the person of James Herlihy £33.-Chief Detective O'Connor conducted the case for the prosecution, and Mr Hanlon defended.-The facts disclosed were to the effect that Herlihy was a farmer, residing at Hyde, and came to town on the 25th September. On the day following the accused Robertson met him, while he was drunk, near the Grand Hotel. About 5 p.m. he took him to the European Hotel, where Herlihy was stopping. Herlihy had in his possession £33, consisting of five five-pound notes and the remainder single notes, all being Bank of New South Wales notes. Accused Parnell was seen waiting outside the hotel, and told an acquaintance, who was passing, that he was waiting for a friend who had gone in to have a drink with an old farmer. Shortly afterwards the two accused were seen together near the hotel, and went away in company, and were afterwards drinking together in several hotels. Robertson changed a one-pound note at the Rainbow Hotel, immediately after leaving the European, and about 8 o'clock in the evening he and Parnell went to the Bowling Green Hotel, where the latter changed five one-pound Bank of New South Wales notes. He was arrested by Detectives O'Connor and M'Grath at the Bowling Green Hotel, and had £5 16s, consisting of silver, in his possession. About half an hour afterwards Robertson was arrested in his house at Lambeth road, off Cumberland street, and had two five-pound notes in his possession, and his wife handed the detectives three five-pound notes, which she said she found in her husband's pocket when he came home the worse for drink. She was quite surprised at finding so much money on him, as she knew he had none when he went out, and thought he might have been gambling. She asked him where he got the money, and he said he did not know.-A witness from the bank at Naseby gave evidence that Herlihy got three five-pound notes from the bank on the 18th of last month. These were between certain numbers, and tallied with the three notes handed over to the police by Robertson's wife. It was stated that the two accused were mates, and Parnell was receiving charitable aid. Parnell told the detectives that the money found on him was his own, and Robertson said that what he had belonging to Herlihy he would return in the morning -Evidence was given by James Herlihy (who could not say how the money went), F. W. Fleming, William Finlay, Margaret Dwyer, Thos. Sullivan, Edgar Halford, George Harrison, Edward Charles Holmes, and Detectives M'Grath and O'Connor.-Mr Hanlon then briefly addressed the court, admitting that, as far as Robertson was concerned, he could not deny that there was a prima facie case made out. The other accused was, however, in a very different position, and was entitled to an acquittal. The evidence did not connect him in any way with Robertson or the theft.-The Bench considered there was a case to answer by both accused, and committed them for trial; bail being allowed each accused in £100, and two sureties of £50 each.
