Three, little girls, Maud Speed, May England and Mary Perry, having given evidence of seeing the prisooier exposing himself, P.S. Baker said that when appre- hended pi-is;oner was in a state of in toxication. When charged with the offence, he replied that he was very sorry to have done such a thing."
