Prosecutor said prisoner came to live with him last Saturday fortnight. Prosecutor went away from home last Saturday week and came back on the Monday, but found prisoner and his bag gone. Everything was then all right, and he and his wife then went to Cardiff until the follow- ing Wednesday evening. When they returned they found a pane of glass in the back kitchen broken, and a lot of his and his wife's things gone. He communicated with the police, and told a friend of prisoner's to tell him to come down and see him. The next morning prisoner cam-a down and asked him what he wanted of him. Prosecutor asked him about the clock, and prisoner replied, They are all right." Prosecutor told him he had better go to the police-station with him. When there he gave him in charge for stealing the things, and he made no reply. He estimated the value of the goods at £5.-Joseph Bumford, 28, Station-street, Barry Dock, labourer, said that he saw the defendant and a lad outside the house on the evening of the 27th September, at about 7.30, when witness had left work.

He had given him some money to keep him, and he (prisoner) had been obliged to take some things to sell to get some food. The back-door was open. When he saw him he had a large sailor's bag on his back, and a. little lad, Richard Mahoney, was carrying a bundle on his head.-Richard Mahoney, 12 years of age, said he lived with his step-mother at 10, Gueret-street, Barry Dock.
