AN ELOPEMENT AND ITS SEQUEL.âA man applied at the Westminster Police-court, London, on Saturday, for advice, with reference to his wife, who had, he said, run away with money he had saved and everything else of value which had been in the house. The magistrate said he was afraid he could not help him, upon which the applicant said he hoped, then, he should not meet his wife, or he would certainly murder her. He was im- mediately ordered into the dock, and, in default of finding security to keep the peace, was ordered to be imprisoned for six months. A MONEY HAWKER IN TROUBLE.âFrancis Lowry was charged at the Wandsworth Police-court, London, on Saturday, with cheating her Majesty's subjects by means of palmistry. He stood on the towing-path on the morning of the expected boat race, and offered to sell purses each containing two half-crowns for half that amount. One which was purchased contained two pennies. The prisoner said" he sometimes got caught himself and had to put up with it, and offered to show how the trick was done. Turning up his sleeves, he threw two half-crowns into a purse, part of his stock, then took them out and, whilst pre- tending to throw them back, really threw them into the hand holding the purse, pence which had been palmed taking their place in the latter. The magistrate discharged the prisoner, remarking that persons who bought purses under such circumstances must take the consequences. THE CALVINISTIC METHODISTS AND THE GENERAL ELECTION.âAt the Arfon Monthly Meeting of the Cal vinisticMethodists, held at Bwlan, representing about eighty churches, it was resolved, "That this meeting being convinced of the close connection existing between the gospel of righteousness and a wise and righteous policy, feels constrained in the present critical juncture of national affairs, to protest against the foreign policy of her Majesty's present advisers, and affirms that it is the clear duty of every Christian and true patriot to secure the return to Parlia- ment of candidates opposed to the policy of un- just wars and aggressions abroad, and pledged to further the religious and political equality, the sobriety and moral "development of the people. For these and other reasons we urge the Liberal electors of Carnarvonshire to stand firm to their principles at the present election." Signed, Robert Thomas, chairman; T. G. Roberts, secretary.
