ALLEGED FALSE PRETENCES AT BANGOR. On Thursday, at the Bangor Petty Sessions, be- fore Mr T. Lewis and other magistrates, Edward phillip Jewell Hutchings, a tailor, was charged on remand with having obtained the signature of T. Jones Hughes, a fellow workman, to a pro- missory note under false pretences.—Mr W. Huw Rowland prosecuted, and Mr H. Lloyd Carter de- fended. Mr W. Huw Rowland, said the prosecutor and the prisoner were at one time employed by a master tailor named J. W. Roberts. In June this year Hutchings was in want of money, and he spoke to the prosecutor about raising money to the extent of JE12 or JE15, and in order to do this he asked the prosecutor to become surety for him. A conversation took place as to Hutchings' means, the prisoner distinctly stating that Roberts, his employer, owed him a considerable sum of money. The prosecutor asked him to whom did the furniture belong, and he replied that it was his property and that he had brought it ij um Daven port. It was upon this representation that the prosecutor agreed to become surety for him, and negotiations were entered into with a firm of money lenders from Manchester, who sent a re- presentative to Bangor to make enquiries, as the result of which the money was advanced on a promissory note,which was signed by the prosecutor and the prisoner. The accused atfer tbis. neglected his work, and ultimately left Banger, leaving no address, and made no communication with the prosecutor, and had never paid the money borrowed, S7 of which had been paid by the prosecutor. Thomas Jones Hughes said that in the month of June the prisoner was employed at Mr J. W. Roberts' establishment, On the 20th of that month he told witness that he was in monetary difficulties, owing to his wages not having been paid. He asked witness to become bail for him for S12 or £ 15. In reply to the question what security he bad the prisoner replied that the money due by Roberts would be paid him, and that the furniture in the house was valued at five times the money required. Witness ultimately agreed te become bail for him. A representative of a firm of money lenders inJManchester came to Bangor; and in answer to certain questions put °to' the prisoner by this gentleman the former replied that he possessed furniture valued at .£100. Witness and the money lender visited Rock House, Cae- llepa, where the prisoner resided and the latt3r, in answer to further questions, saIdlthat the furniture bad been brought from Davenport. The note, which was for X,15, was signed by witness and the prisoner. Witness received S2 10s of the money, as the prisoner only required JE12. Witness had paid S7 of the money. E. H. Pope, agent for a firm of money lenders, said he was induced to lend the money on the re- presentation made that the furniture belonged to the accused. Edwin Jones, cabinet maker, High street, said that the accused got the furniture from him in June on the hire purchase system. An execution had been put in, and witness claimed the goods. Mr Carter having addressed the bench for the defence, the case was dismissed, the magistrates pointing opt to the prosecutor that if Hutchings did not keep up the payments of the instalments he had his remedy in a civil court.
