Stoll, William James (1865–1951)

William James Stoll, 86, who was "arrested" as a youth by Ned Kelly when the bushranger and his gang held up the town of Jerilderie, died here yesterday.

A pioneer of the south-west section of the State, Mr. Stoll often told the story of how the bushrangers controlled the town for several days and robbed the bank.

Ned and Dan Kelly, who had locked the police up in the cells and stolen their uniforms, arrested him while walking down the street.
