Luggage Robberies. WELSH LADY CHARGED. Sad Story of Inebriety. Ciara Davis, a Welsh lady, well known in musical circles, and said to be the widow of a, St. Paul's chorister, was charged at Westmins- ter on Wednesday with stealing a hag and con- tents at the Victoria Station of the South- Eastern and Chatham and Dover Railway. Accused was arrested by the company's detec- tive inspectors walking off with the bag, which she had removed froma, track of luggage. De- fendant said the bag belonged to her husband, but it was identified by a gentleman en route to Colombo. Mr Greenop. solicitor for the accused, said he was sorry to sav that she was an habitual drunkard, and the only thing that could be said was that she took the bag iu a moment of mental aberration, caused by drink. She would consent to be set-t to a home, and per- haps his Worship wo^ld adopt the view that this would be t Je best termination of a sad case. The Magistrate: She is adopting a wise '"uurse, considering the orffence. Mr H. H. Fraser, solicitor representing the railway company, said of course they were pre- pared to protect their passengers in every way. They quite acquiesced in any course his Wor- ship thought best. He understood that all the pawntickets found on the accused related to her own property. Mr Francis: I will remand defendant for another week to corhplete arrangements to send her to a home. Well-dressed Woman Sent to Prison. The well-dressed woman, giving the name of Dorothy Legg, was again charged at Mary- lebone on Wednesday with stealing a lady's dressing bag and contents, value E5, from Paddington. Miss Selby, of Elm Side, West Drayton, re- turned from Ireland on September 1st and placed her luggage in the care of a porter while she had breakfast. On her return the bag was missing. It had contained a book of cheques, and one of these the accused gave to her landlady to cash. She was, arrested with the bag in her possession, cut at both ends, but though she admitted stealing it, she said she had no remembrance of anything afterwards. The prisoner was also charged with stealing a serge coat, which she was wearing when arrested. Her excuse was that she saw the policeman, and, becoming nervous, picked up the coat and walked off with it. She was sentenced to-three months' imprison- ment on each charge-six months in all.
