PAWNBROKER AND "MASTER MARINER." ALLEGED FALSE PRETENCES. At the close of the business of the Barry Dock Pulice-court on Friday last J. B. Shaw, a pawn- broker, of Sheffield, made an application for a warrant for arrest against Captain J. C. Mills, a master mariner, otherwise a ship's steward. Ap- plicant had a number of telegrams and other correspondence in his possession, which he handed to the Bench for perusal, and stated that Mille had ebtained goods from him by false pretences. The goods obtained were 36 razors, valued at f4 16s., 36 pocket knives, and two dozen sets of carvers, to the value ot JE4 9s. The olerk and the magistrates, having examined the correspondence, asked where were the false pretences ? Applicant: He represented himself to me as a master mariner, and he is only a ship's steward. He told me he was coming over here to take troops to Africa. Bench There is nothing here that would lead you to believe he was a captain. Applicant: I have been led to believe so. The man goes to sea, and has a Wilson liner's badge on his cap. Chairman I would advise you to instruct a solicitor, Applicant: I will apply to the Pawnbrokers' Protection Society, Bench We cannot grant a warrant. Applicant said the man lived at that time at Barry Dock, and Ultimately a summons was issued against him, but we have since learnt that no ploceedings will be taken.
