CAUTION TO MEMBERS OF FRIENDS OF LABOUR LOAN SOCIETIES. William Bennett and Jonas Hicks, trustees of the Friends of Labour Loan Society, held at the Woolpack Tavern, Bermondsey-street, appeared at the Southwark Police-court to an adjourned summons, charging them with unlawfully withholding the sum of Ell 14s. from James Walker. It appeared from the evidence of com- plainant that he had been for a long time a member of the society, and had continued to pay up all contribu- tions. Being in particular want of .£11 14s., which he had in the funds of the society, he gave notice to the secretary of the withdrawal of that sum according to the rules, and not being able to ob. tain it, he was compelled to take the present proceed- ings. Thomas Cook, who said he-had been paid secretary to the society, but was now acting voluntarily, admitted that the soeiety had that amount of money belonging to complainant; but it was lent out with other sums to the members, and as soon as the trustees could get it in he wosld be paid according to rota. On being cross- examined by Mr. Ody, he admitted that one of the de. fendants—Mr. Hicks-borrowed £12 from the funds of the society since the complainant gave notice, and that he had not yet replaced it. Mr. Burcham observed that as Hicks had X12 belonging to the society, he should order him to pay zcll 14s., and in default of sufficient distress, to be imprisoned six weeks.
