The Commissioner of Police has received a telegram from Taroom stating that a man named Frederick Jacobs went away into the bush on the 16th instant suffering from delirium tremens. The police and a search party were out all day and found Jacobs about three miles from Taroom hanging to the bough of a tree. An inquiry will be held.
