A CHESHIRE LANDOWNER A STOWAWAY. » — At the Thames (London) Police Court, on Monday, Thomas Blakeman, 34, a civil engineer, of Barrhill House, Great Barr, Birmingham, was charged with being found as a stowaway on board the Castle Liner Dunvegan Castle, belonging to Messrs. Donald Currie and Co. (Limited). Mr. F. Deakin prosecuted, and said that the Dunvegan Castle left Cape Town on August 18. The next day the defendant was seen by the steerage superintendent walking about on the deck. That officer asked him the number of his berth. He said that he had none, nor had he a ticket. The chief officer, Mr. Cassidy, then spoke to him. He stated to him that he had stowed himself away because he had been ill and had spent all his money. He had property in the county of Cheshire and else- where, and would pay his fare at the end of the voyage. The fare was 13 guineas. A telegram had been received from the defendant's friends offering to pay the fare, so Mr. Deakin sug- gested that a short remand might be advisable in the interests of all parties.—Evidence was given bearing out this statement.—Defendant said he would pay the money. He could not understand why his friends had not met him witn it.—Mr. Mead considered the offence was of too serious a character to allow the defendant to be discharged on merely paying the fare. The full penalty of £ 20, or two months' hard labour, was not excessive, and would be imposed.
