I Mary Elizabeth Jones, 3, Railway Place, and Alice Shaw, St. David's Lane, were charged with stealing cinders to the value of 2d., the property of the Old Castle Tinplate Company. Mr. W. Howell appeared for the Company. P.C. Tudor deposed that he was on duty near the Old Castle Works on the 25th March. About 8.30 he saw two girls looking over the boundary wall. He subsequently saw two going from the place with cinders in a bag. When one of them saw witness, both dropped the cinders and ran. He caught the girl Jones, and asked her if she knew she was doing wrong by taking the cinders. She replied that she did not know. He took the bag of cinders back to the works, and afterwards saw the girl Shaw and her mother, who said that her daughter was going against her will to pick the cinders. The Bench Is there a notice up in the place warning the public ? Witness I cannot say. Mr. Brodie Have you ascertained the ages of the defendants ? Witness Yes. The defendant Jones is 15, and Shaw 14 years of age. J. Harries, timekeeper and weigher to the company, sworn, said there was no notice to trespassers on the ground. There was a wall to the front of the works. Trespassers were continually in the habit of coming there. They had been warned time and again. It was now aangerous because ot the New Steel Works. The witness identified the cinders produced. The Bench said that they would not convict in this case. It would be a pity to slur the character of such young defendants. People in the neighbourhood had been in the habit of going to the place to pick cinders and they (the Bench) would not singls out one or two for punitive treatment. They* hoped the company would place a notice on the spot warning trespassers. Mr. Howell: I will see to that your worships. The Bench further said that they would dismiss the ease on payment of costs 5s. DRUNKS.
