A DISPUTED POLICE REWARD. A singular point was mentioned at the Essex Quarter Sessions at Chelmsford on Tuesday in con- nection with the payment of a reward of J6100 which was offered by the chief-constable of the county for the apprehension of the murderer of the late Police-Inspector Simmons at Romford a year ago. It will be remembered that a man named James Lee, alias Manson, who fired the fatal shot, entered the shop of Mr. Baxter, pawnbroker, in the Euston-road, London, early one morning with a revolver which he offered to pledge. The assistant's suspicions were roused from informa- tion lie had received from the police. Baxter offered Lee a paper to read while he, in the mean- time, sent to the police-station and obtained assistance, with the result that Lee was appre- hended after a violent struggle. He was after- U, wards convicted and executed. Mr. Baxter sent in a claim for the Y,100 reward, while a similar claim was made by others who had given impor- tant evidence in the case. Counsel's opinion was taken and a decision arrived at against Mr. Baxter's claim. The Court issued instructions that an attempt should be made to settle the case among the persons concerned; but Baxter decided to stand by his claim, and the clerk of the peace reported that he had accepted a writ on behalf of the justices, and the case will shortly be heard in open court.
