Theft of a Ham.—At the Market Hall, Fishguard, on Friday last before Mr T G Bennett, a man named Patrick Wheelan, a native of South Shields,was charged in custody for that he on the 22nd day of April, felon- iously did steal one ham of the value of twen- ty-eight shillings, the property of Mr 41fred Williams, of the Farmers Arms, Fishguard. Evidence was given by Mrs Williams to the effect that the accused came into the house about 10 o'clock the previous day and she served him with a pint of beer. He asked her if he should go into the kitchen to dry his coat, and she granted the request. Her hus- band happened to come down from upstairs a few minutes after, and saw something bulky under prisoner's coat, which she saw-at once was one of the hams that she had hang- ing in the kitchen. She valued the ham at twenty-eight shillings.—Prisoner was reman- ded in custody (no bail being forthcoming) to Newport Sessions on the 18th day of May. In the absence of Mr Walter J Vaughan, sol- icitor, Mr Sydney J Pitt acted as Magistrates' Clerk.
