Ellis, Joseph Edwards, Bedford Street, was charged with stealing a quantity of calico from the Queen's Palace, the property of the Rhyl Property Company. Mr. F. J. Gamlin defended.—Mr. H. E. Doughty, solicitor, Manchester, said that the prisoner had been employed as a labourer at the Queen's Palace. He identified the can- vass now produced, which measured about 14 yards, and valued at 5d. per yard. He or- dered the defendant on Sunday to take the canvass out of the ballroom into the Arcade, and he did so. He had found the prisoner a very hard-working man.—Cross-examined by Mr. Gamlin: He had no desire to press the charge.—Mr. C. J. Richardson said that they had had a suspicion that this sort of work was going on for some time, and though they did not wish to press the charge, they wanted an Example made of the defendant. At the Police Station defendant asked him not to say any- thing.—Cross-examined: He had not had oc- casion TO suspect prisoner before.—Sergeant Mc Walter deposed to seeing the defendant coming from the Arcade carrying a bundle. He followed him into Bedford Street, and there stopped him. He asked him what it was lie was carrying home with him, and asked him how he had got the bundle produced, and he replied, I have been working at the Arcade, and they are clearing out, so I took J it frpm there." He asked if anybody had f given him authority to do so, and he replied, Xo. nobody has.' Witness took possession of the canvass, and defendant begged of him not to say anything about it. He sent for Mr. Richardson, and he subsequently charged defendant with the theft, and he admitted taking the canvass.—Mr. F. J. Gamlin, on behalf of the defendant, pleaded not guilty, and pointed out accoraing to the evidence that there was no felonious intent. Defendant thought when he was told to clear the canvass that it was of no value, having been used for the purpose of protecting the carpets. Were it not for the fact that defendant had been previously convicted for larceny he did not think the charge would have been pressed against him. But the last of these happened eleven years ago, and the other when defen- dant was 11 years of age. Defendant was the sole support of his mother, who was 74 years of age, as well as his crippled sister.—Defen- dant was fined 5s. and 18s. costs.—John Wat- son, labourer, late cf Bolton, but no of no fixed place of abode, was charged with va- grancy.
