ROBBERY FROM THE DUNDEE MUSEUM. At the High Court of Justiciary, Edinburgh, Petet, Graham, riveter, Dundee, has been placed at the bar on the charge of breaking into the Museum of the Albert Institute Buildings, Dundee, in November last, and stealing a presentation dessert service of silver, valued at JE600, the property of Provost Robertson, Dundee, and also a large quantity of jewel- lery belonging to Mr. Jason Goodchild, Dundee, and the committee of the Dundee School of Art, amounting to the value of two or three hundred pounds. The prisoner pleaded not guilty. It appeared from the evidence that the stolen property had been found in the old railway tunnel at the Law, near Dundee.—Mr. William Brownlee, formerly a magi- strate in Dundee, admitted he had handed the prisoner jBlOO to give information where the property was con- cealed.—The Solicitor-General said that, after the statement of the witness, he would withdraw the charge against the prisoner.—The Lord Justice ClerK said that to offer a reward for a confession of gnilt wae wholly inconsistent with criminal procedure.—The jury then returned a verdict of not guilty, and the prisoner was discharged.
