FATAL STABBING BY A YOUTH. On Wednesday at the Central Criminal Court Charles Harris, 18, labourer, was indicted for the wilful murder of Arthur Arnold. Arnold and a man named Nagh were coming along Old Kent-road between J and o clock in the morning when a dis- pute took place between Nash and the prisoner, who had been to a "friendly lead," Harris struck Nash, and Arnold interfered as being nearer the pri. soner's size. Nash found that he had been stabbed, and almost immediately Arnold also received a serious stab, which bled profusely. Harris ran away, but was caught, and in his possession was found a large carving knife, which had been impro- perly taken away from his employer's premises. At the time the prisoner stabbed the deceased he used a bad expression, and some time after he was in cus- tody, when angry, he said he would serve the constable the same if he had the tools. Arnold subsequently died in the hospital. Having regard to all the facts, Mr. Poland said that he did not think it was a case in which he should ask the jury to find a verdict of wilful murder, but he should ask them to convict the prisoner of man- slaughter. Counsel for the prisoner said he should not attempt to resist a verdict of manslaughter, and submitted that the charge of wilful murder could not be supported.—The jury found the prisoner guilty of manslaughter, and he was sentenced to five years' penal servitude.
