A SENSATIONAL ARREST AT BAR- MOUTH. The inhabitants of Barmouth were thrown into a flutter of excitement on Tuesday by the news t'<. b an alleged London forger had been arrested j'l t o town. The affair bad been kept remarkably <i ut-c, and the arrest had been made before any J. tin- inhabitants had any idea that a criminal v < a fugitive amongst them. The story is q • romantic. It appears that a young fellow nau¡.; j Harry Lee, a ship's steward, had for some time past been paying his attentions to Miss Evans, a respectably connected young lady residing at Bar- mouth. Pretending to be a man of means, Lee was lavish in his presents, succeeded in gaining the affections of the young lady, and arrangements were made for the marriage, which was to have taken place this week. However, Sergeant W. Williams, of Barmouth, received a telegram from the headquarters of the Metropolitan police force stating that a warrant had been issued for the arrest of Lee for forgery. The officer immediately j proceeded to the house where the young lady I resided, just in time to nrevent the young couple going for a drive. The arrest was quietly effected, and the prisoner removed in spite of the indignant protests of the would be bride. He was conveyed to London by Sergeant Detective Decker, and on the following morning brought up before the magistrates charged with obtaining the sum of X20 from one Jacob Mulheisen, a ship's butcher at Millwall, under the pretence that the money was for the ship's purpose. In order to secure the money, which he received by instalments, he had, as alleged, forged the name of the captain of the Bandeeth, a barque loading for Carditf. He was sentenced to twelve months' imprisonment, with hard labour, and ordered to pay JE20 compensa- tion.
