DEFRAUDING A CARDIFF FIRM. I At th £ Liverpool police-court on Fridayâbefore Mr Riffles, 'stipendiary magistrateâRichard Ellison (35) and William Jones (39) were brought up by warrant charged with obtaining, by false pretences and conspiracy, 900 bags of flour from Messrs Spiller and Company, Cardiff (Limited), millers and corn merchants. In March last the prisoner Ellison was an agent for the firm in Liverpool and district, and his duties were simply to get orders and send them direct to the firm, who would communicate with the purchaser and send the goods direct. Ellison sent an order for a thousand sacks of flour for Jones, who had an office in King-street. Messrs Spiller and Co. had previously executed some small orders from Jones, and the goods were paid for. This established some confidence. Jones appears to have handed over the bills of lading to Ellison, who sold the flour to men in the trade, who paid Ellison the money. Chief Detective Inspector Marsh explained to the magistrates that the value of the flour obtained by the prisoners was £ 880 odd, and he ask»d that they should be remanded for the attendance of Mr Ensor, solicitor, of Cardiff, who had the case in hand. Detective Sub-Inspector McConchi stated that he arrested the prisoners the previous day at Seacoihbe, and in reply to the charge, Ellison said everything had gone wrong with him for some time. He was very sorry, but he never intended to defraud people out of their money, but the money went flying for one thing and another. Jones said anything he did was through Ellison's instructions, and he did not know that there was any fraud in the matter. The prisoners were remanded for seven days.
