Friday 13 September 1901, The Advertiser (Adelaide)

John Tolley, aged 67, was discovered asleep on the Uralla-road by a constable, who locked him up on a charge of being under the influence of liquor. The old man was subsequently removed to the hospital, where it was discovered that instead of suffering from the effects of drink he was very ill from pneumonia, and he died early in the morning. It was considered that he was probably on his way home, when, overcome by illness, he lay down and went to sleep on the roadway.
