THE young man's mind now iurIÍI towards hops, and they go to his head or his heels, as he takes them in beer or ball rooms ARREST OF A SUSPECTED MURDERER,—A "Qan is in the custody of the Staffordshire police on charges of burglary in various parts of the county»' a £ d the Detective Department have strong reasons for believing that he is the criminal who murdered a watchman named Bowater at Old Hill Ironworks on Tuesday, the 8th inst.; and they also suspect that he murdered the eld woman named Martha Billitoe, at Hanford, near Stoke-on-Trent, in .December last.' The prisoner, who is known by the name Potteries George," is a returned convict, and was arrested at Coseley a few days ago for a burglary in the neighbourhood. It transpired that the prisoner had committed a number of burglaries in North and South Staffordshire. He was examined in his cell by Detective Inspector Hackney, who found marks of blood on his clothing and a wound on hia face. When asked to account for the circumstance he became coufused and made a number of contradictory state- ments. It was found, however, that the prisoner actually committed a burglary, near Old Hill Iron- works on the night of the murder. As his description resembled that of the Hanford murderer, inquiries were made, which resulted in the discovery that the Prisoner was in the neighbourhood of the murdered woman's house when the murder was committed. The prisoner has since been charged with both murders, but denies having committed them. A TELEGRAM from Shanghai announces the death of Mr. Charles Wycliff* Goodwin,, Assistant Judge at that place.
