It was quite time a stop was put to the system of petty peculation which has of late become so rife at auction sales. One of our leading auctioneers has shewn the way by taking a stand against this objectionable practice. The three cases brought before the Chester magistrates on Monday were not of a serious character so far as the intrinsic value of the articles pilfered was concerned, but the, defendants were none the less culpable on that account, and the fact that they occupied respectable positions was not allowed to weigh unduly with the magiatiates. The order upon the defendants to come up for judgment when called upon and to pay the costs, coupled with the publicity given to the cases and the dis- grace they involve, will no doubt serve as a salutary warning to other evildoers who apparently attend sales for no other purpose than to steal whatever loose articles they can lay their hands on.
