SPECIAL POLICE COURT. THE PROSECUTION OF A PADESWOOD LILLY. FRIDAY.—Before Messrs. H. Lloyd Jones, and W. P. Jones. James Lilly, junior, hawker, Padeswood, was charged with stealing a lamp attached to a furniture van. James Davies, carter, in the employ of Mr. James Lee, Abbot Street, Wrexham, said he arrived at Mold on the previous Wednesday evening in charge of a furniture van, the property of his employer. The lamp (produced) was attached to the lorry, and was made secure. He stabled his horses at the Star Hotel, and the van was left in High Street. At 11.30 the lamp was on the van, but at 12.30 it was gone, and he had to go home without a light. He told the ostler of his loss, and also gave informa- tion to a police officer who was on duty. Mrs. Marie Morris, of the Red Lion Hotel, Wrexham Street, stated that on the previous Thursday morning, the prisoner came to her house and asked witness to take charge of the lamp in case anyone en- quired about it, stating that he had kicked it before him in the dark. Witness refused to take the lamp in, and advised prisoner to take it home. The prisoner left his name and address in case anyone called for it. The lamp was then clean, and shewed no marks of having been on the road. Joseph Swan, of the Railway Inn, gave similar evidence. P.C. Gabriel stated that he was on the up- platform at the Mold Railway Station in company with Supt. Davies on the previous Thursday morning. The prisoner came there with his wife from the Railway Inn, the latter carrying something under her shawl. Prisoner volunteered no informa- tion as to the lamp. Sergt. Edward Jones gave evidence as to receiving Lilly in custody, who in reply to the charge, said he had found the lamp. Prisoner gave evidence, the purport of which was, that he had found the lamp. The bench did not believe his story, and fined prisoner 21 or 14 days imprisonment.
