A young woman put her head out nd looked up and down the street, and in a hort time a little girl of 10 or 12 years of ge, named Lizzie Thomas, came out from he house and walked across the street to Conduit-lane opposite. I noticed she was arrying something under her cloak, The hild was scared, and I asked her to come )ack into the public house. At the door asked her to open her cloak, which she lid, and in her hand I found a quart of resh strong beer. The Chairman Was this the same girl hat came and looked up and down the treet ? Witness also said I knocked at the door wice, and heard movements as though tcople were moving about. The son of the lefendant then opened the door. I asked tim why he supplied this little girl with jeer. He said, I sent her with it to the voman who washes here." Defendant was leaf; that is why I spoke to him. In tnswer to me he said, The little girl is my iiecc, and lives on the premises." I found L man, a stranger to the town, on the premises, but I did not take his name. I hen said I would report the case, and left he house. Mr John Were you standing in the ;treet ? Witness Yes. I saw her in the street, Unless a person looks out into the road I -ould not see him. The party looked up instead of down, and did not see me. George told me when I went in that the beer was for the washer-woman. Some years ago there was something known against the house. Mrs Margaret James, wifo of David James, labourer, 15, Mill-street, said: I work occasionally at the Cresselly Arms. I go there every Sunday morning for the purpose of cleaning up after the Saturday. It is usual for me to have an allowance there. I did not have my allowance on Sunday week because Mrs George was not down. I asked the little girl if she would bring it down to me, and she promised me she would. She did not bring it down, but came down about dinner-timo, and told me tho reason why. I had it OIl Monday, but I did not pay for it. I am in the habit of taking what I have homo for my dinner. By the Clerk I sometimes have about four pennyworth or a quart of beer between Saturday and Monday. I did not take it away on Saturday because I wanted to work somewhere else. I was working until 12 o'clock in the Coffee Tavern. Elizabeth Thomas, grand-daughter of defendant said I was taking the beer to Mrs James, of Mill-street. That beer was allowance. She is always having it. Mrs James had been working in the house that morning. My granny did not go out from the house. My grandmother keeps the keys of the cellar. I went down to Mill-street under the wall." I wanted to go the back ? way because I was dirty. I went through Spilman-street over the Quay, and up pass the Foundry. I turned up a lane by Crossman's. I, went down to Mrs James after dinner, and told her I was caught, and that was why she did not have her beer. By the Chairman I am not in the habit of taking the beer. She always takes it herself. Z, She is there every Sunday for the last four months. I was dressed when I went dinner-time. Mr John having addressed the bench, Lizzie Thomas was recalled, and said she was 12 years of ago—going on 13. She had not beou talking about the caso to either defendant, Mrs Jamos, or her uuclo.
