— SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST A COMMERCIAL TRAVELLER. At the Bristol police-court, on Wednesday (before Messrs. W. Fudge and H. Taylor), Charles Goas, a. commercial traveller, was charged with embezzling various sums of money, amounting, in the aggre- gate, to about £ 250, the property of his employers, Messrs. Baker and Sons, Bristol and Newport. Tiie evidence went to show that in 1880 the prisoner was engaged by the prosecutors as commercial traveller in the North of England. His duties were to take orders for their Victoria Dog Biscuits, collect moneys, and forward the amounts at once to the firm at Bristol. The cashier at Bristol, upon receiving these remittances, at once advised Mr. Barnes, the manager of the Newport branch, who credited the customers with the amounts in his books. At first he travelled on commission only, but that was subsequently altered. Defendant was paid £ 2 per week, and £ 1 per day travelling expenses up to £ 200 a year. About ten days ago the prosecutors sent, out accounts to all the customers in the defendant's district who owed monej, and the result of the answers was that the prisoner was called back to Bristol and given in custody. A number of cus- tomers were called from Wrexham, Denbigh, Dids- bury, near Manchester Rotherham, Sale, Cheshire, and other pkices, who pioved the payment of various sums to the prisoner, which had not been accounted for. The prisoner, who reserved his defence, was committed for trial at the assizes.
