"NOT A SOFT MAGISTRATE." Refusing to accede to the request of a young man who had been charged with assault that he should be dealt with under the First Offenders Act, Mr. Fordham, at the West London Police Court on Saturday, observed: No, certainly not. Some of you fellows think that the moment you get into trouble you can get a magistrate to bind you over. Some- times you find a magistrate who is soft and, *s I think, weak; but I am not of that sort, so your appeal is wasted on me." The prisoner, who had been guilty of a very violent assault, was sentenced to two months' hard labour.
