FOREST OF DEAN. UNFOUNDED CHARGE AGAINST A SOLICITOR.—On Friday week, at the Littledean police-court (before Major Probyn, chairman; Mr. Russell J. Kerr, and Mr. Arnold Thomas), Edward Goldring, solicitor, of Cinderford, was charged on remand with the following offence :—That he, having been entrusted as an attorney by one James Marfell, a grocer, of Ruardean-hill, with the sum of £8, did unlawfully convert and appropriate the same to his own use and benefit. Mr. Male, from the office of Mr. Fryer, Coleford, prosecuted, and Mr. Horace Brown, barrister, Eastern Circuit, with whom was Mr. F. F. Goold, Oxford Circuit (instructed by Mr. Mitchell, of London), defended. Some time ago Marfell was served with a writ by a Mr. Wintle, of Mitcheldean, and Mr. Goldring was instructed in the matter, when an arrangement was arrived at. He was next instructed with regard to some debts due to Marfell. One account was that against a man named Jayne of £17. The defendant after- wards saw his client, and intimated that Jayne offered to pay £9 in settlement. Prosecutor swore he refused to accept the amount, named, and that subsequently Mr. Goldring settled the book on receiving £8, which he declined to pay over on the ground that he (Mr. Goldring) had given his word and honour to a Mr. Wliatley for his costs arising out of the suit of Wintle. Subsequently Marfell in- structed Mr. Parker, a solicitor, of Newnham, to obtain the full amount of Jayne's debt from de- fendant. Mr. Brown, in addressing tho bench on behalf of defendant, submitted that if a charge could be sustained professional men would not be safe five minutes, and gentlemen receiving sums' of money for charitable purposes would be at the mercy of any person who close to lay an infor- mation against them. The Bench dismissed the charge, a.nd added that Mr. Goldring left the court with his character unstained.
