1 Dealer to Blame + I PUTTING TEMPTATION IN A GIRL'S I WAY. Annie May James (14), 28, Lakefield road, was proceeded against at the Juvenile Court on Thursday for the theft of a wristlet watch and strap, value 1:6 10s., the property of Sarah Bowen. Sarah Bowen, 5, AnnesIey street, said that 10 a.m. on August IGth, she left her watch on the dresser in the middle room, and about 3.30 that afternoon de- fendant came to have her new dress tried on. A few minutes after, witness went to the front door to speak to someone, leaving defendant in the room, and re- turned in about 15 minutes. About 5 p.m. the .same day witness missed the watch. On August 18th witness went to defendant's house and asked her if she had seen the watch, to which defendant replied in the negative. Witness next saw the watch with Detective T. Davies. Isaac Weinstein, 24, Murray street, said that he was a dealer in second-hand goods. About 5 p.m. on August 16th, defendant came to his shop and asked him to buy a wristlet watch. He ex- amined the watch and found the fastener of the strap missing. The defendant asked 10s. for it, whereupon witness told her the watch was only worth 5s. De- dendant told him it was her own watch which her mother bought as a present from London. Witness eventually bought the watch for 5s. Two days later defen- dant called again and said her mother was very cross with her for having sold the watch, and witness said she could have it back. Defendant then said she had lent the 5s. to a girl. The following day witness handed the watch to Sergt. Davies. Witness knew the girl as she had previously been a customer of his. Det.-Sergt. T. Davies said that on August 19th he saw the defendant, and told her that he was making inquiries respecting a watch stolen from 5, Annes- ley street. When cautioned, defendant said: "I took the \"Jtch and sold it to Mr. Weinstein, Murray street, for 5s. I am sorry for what I have done." Defendant pleaded guilty, and pro- mised not to do such a thing again. Defendant was hound over in the sum of £ 5 to be of good behaviour for twelve months the mother being ordered to pay j61 costs. The Presiding Magistrate (Mr. Henry Wilkins) also remarked that considerable blame was to be attached to Mr. Wein- stein for having put temptation in the girl's way, and disallowed the costs due to him as a witness. _v. -0.
