LLANDAFF. V- CURIOUS CHARGE OF ROBBERY.—At the Llandaff police court, on Monday (before Mr. E. W David, and Mr. G. Phillips). Cornelius Driscoll was charged with stealing 12s. 6d. from Frank Harris. Mr. Yorath appeared for the defence. There was a race going on in Castle-road, on the 17th of this month and complainant went there to see it. There was a good deal of betting, and the com- plainant was referee. After the race was over, the pri- soner and another man went to him and took the betting money by force out of his hand. They also toek 12s. out of his waistcoat poeket. and assaulted him. Ckarles Jones, labourer, said he was present at the foot-race, and sawthe defendant go up to the complainant after the race was 'over, and take the stakes from his hand, and also take some money out of complainant's waistcoat pocket. There was another witness to appear for the prosecution. but he was paid some money by defendant's sister, and he did not come forward. The case was adjourned, the prisoner being admitted to bail. CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE. — Edward Dwyer was charged with stealing a coat, value 15s., the property of William Bush, on the 21st of this month. The com- plainant was working in the paper mills at Ely. On the above date he hung his coat in the press room, with some others, and it was taken from there in his absence. A search was made for it, and the coat was found under a bush in the yard, to which place the footprints were identical with those made by the prisoner's boot, were clearly traced. P.C. 13 apprehened the prisoner on the 22nd in the paper mills, and charged him with stealing the coat, and he denied it. Near the bush where the coat was found there were footprints in the ground. I then went back and told prisoner to hold up his right boot. I took him down and compared the two prints together which corre- sponded exactly. Mr. Blelloch appeared on behalf of the prisoner, and contended that no case had been made out. The magistiates thought the case was not proved, and they therefore dismissed the prisoner. SKITTLES.—James Yorath was charged with allowing gambling in his house, the Royal Standard, Canton, on the 16th inst.—Mr. Blelloch appeared for the defence. P.C. Loyns (135) said he was on duty in Canton on the night in question, and heard a noise in the defendant's house. He went into the house afterwards, and in the skittle alley he saw a number of men playing at skittles. He stayed there a little while, and saw them throw up some coin for odd man. They then played a game for 3a. a side, and went and drank the beer in the house. The constable told the landlord of it, and he said he was not in at the time and could not be answerable for things in his absence. Corroborative evidence was given by P.C. Johns (84). There were several witnesses called for the defence, who proved that there was no betting what- ever going on all the afternoon. The case was dismissed.
