TBE CHARGE OF EMBEZZLE- MENT AT MERTHYR. At Merthyr police court on Wednesday (before Mr. J. Bishop, stipendiary), a commercial traveller named Austin Phipps, of Brecon, was brought up on remand charged with embezzling the moneys of his employers, Messrs. Kerr and Hislop, tailors and drapers, of Merthyr. Mr. W. Simons prosecuted, and Mr. J. J. Jones (Lewis and Jones) defended the accused. After a few opening remarks from Mr. Simons, in which he stated that further defalcittions to the extent of £ 10 had been disoovered, Mr. Jamea Kerr was examined as to the euma alleged to have been embezzled. John Howell, Swan Hotel. Hay; James William Cross, Royal Hotel, Rhymney; and Owen Fox, Tredegar, were then called, and produced receipts signed by the defendant, showing that they had paid the amount due from them to Messrs. Kerr and Hislop. William Davies, foreman to Messrs. Kerr and Hislop, was called, and after having explained the manner in which the business, ao far as the defendant was concerned, wag carried on, said that nothing had been received from Mr. Phippa with reapect to the three customers mentioned above. In further examina. tion Mr. Kerr said that it was from their foreman's statement and their books that they discovered that certain moneys had not been paid in by the defendant. This was all the evi- dence taken, after which Mr. Simons said he was afraid be should have to ask for a further adjourn- ment, in order to bring some other cases forward against the defendant. After some opposition to the adjournment on the part of Mr. Jones, the Stipendiary remanded the case for a week, offering to liberate the defendant on bail, if it was forth. coming. A gentleman from Swansea arrived during the evening, and became surety for the defendant's re-appearance.
