POOL QUAY. IMPUDENT ROBBERY AT THE PARISH CHURCH.âA robbery of a very impudent character was perpetrated at the parish church in this village on Sunday morning. The day was very wet, and a number of umbrellas and "pattens', were left out in the porch, while the service was prooeeding. Much to the surprise and annoyance of the owners at the termination of the service, it was found that some thief had cleared the porch, and the luckless owners had to trudge home through the rain umbrellaless and pattenless. Information was at once sent to the policc at Welshpool and Buttifcgton, and the country was scoured in search of the thief. Early on Monday morning a man called at the house of George Jones, blacksmith, the Wern, and offered an umbrella for sale, remarking that he had others which he would sell very cheaply as he had bought them very cheaply. The man had a bag across his shoulders, and Jones suggesting that he should be allowed to examine the other umbrellas, the man opened the bag for that purpose, when Jones caught sight of an Inverness cape, which he identified as being part of the Stolen pro- perty. He at once collated his man, charged him with having stolen the umbrellas, and with the assistance of a man named Probert, a platelayer on the Cambrian Rail- way, took him to the Wern, and gave him in charge of Mr John Rogers, who took him to Welshpool, and handed him over to P.C. Ellis. There he was identified as an American tramp, who had been convicted at the last quarter sessions of stealing a pair of boots at Caersws. Upon that occasion he gave the name John Witson now he adopted the high-sounding pseudonyme, Hyppolyte Joseph Molé. On Monday afternoon he was brought be- fore the magistrates on a charge of having stolen three umbrellas belonging to Mr John Maginnis, Pool Quay. The umbrellas were found in the prisoner's bag, and were identified by Mrs Maginnis. James Parry, a boy living at the Green Bank,'said that he saw the prisoner pass the house between ten and eleven o'clock on Sunday morning. He noticed him go-near the church, and, in about half an hour afterwards, 'he saw him carrying a bag over his shoulder, from which a portion of an umbrella was pro- truding. A second charge was preferred against the prisoner, of stealing an umbrella belonging to Mr John Rogers, the Wera. The prisoner was, committed for trial upon both charges. The prisoner was committed from Pool Upper Division, the sitting magistrates being John Robinson Jones; Esq., Major Heyward, E. S. R. Trevor, Esq., and Captain Mytton.
