BORROWED PLUMES. I ANOTHER IIESWALL CASE. I At the Neston Petty Sessions on Monday, before Colonel Lloyd and Mr. C. E. Hope, a girl, 21 years of age. named Harriet Joinson, was charged with stealing a brown cloth cos- tume, a blouse and an umbrella, the property of her mistress, Charlotte Rosaline Lcibesohutz, wife of Adolphus Myer Lei bete hutz. a draper, residing in Rocky-lane, Heswall. The total value of the property was estimated at £7. 1R, Sergeant Scott, stationed at Heswall, stated that on Saturday he went to Mr. I/cibeschutz's residence and saw the prisoner. He said to her Mrs. Leibeschutz lias missed a costume and blouse. Do you know anything about them?" Prisoner replied "I do not." He then cautioned her and charged her with stealing the articles. He afterwards brought her to the Neston police- station. Witness reoeived the blouse from prisoner's mother the same evening. Mm. Wharam, wife of Sergeant- Wharam, stated that she searched the prisoner when she waa brought to the peliee-station, and found that she was wearing the costume, now produced in court, underneath another one. It had been identified as the one that had been stolen. Mrs. Leibeschutz, who is a Jewess, stated that the prisoner was in her employment a9 a domostio servant from the 13th March last until 19t,h April. On the latter date (Easter Sunday) she allowed the prisoner out for the day, but she did not return. Witness did not miss tlie articles produced until the previous Sunday morning. She had laid them aside through going into mourning, but, having occasion to go to the wardrobe, she found that they were rniesing. No one had any right to take them. Prisoner, on being addressed by the Bench, seemed in a half-dazed condition, and stated that she stayed with some relatives after leaving Mrs. Leibeschutz. Her replies, however, were very vague, and some f-earching enquiries were addressed to her by Mr. Ilargreaves. the deputy clerk, with a view to ascertaining exactly how she had spent the interval which had elapsed' from the time she left. Rocky-lane until her arrest. After consulting with the clerk, the Bench stated that they were reluctant to send tho prisoner to prison. She mUAt, enter into her own recognisances to appear at the next monthly sessions, when, if her conduct was satisfactory in the meanwhile, she would he remanded as a probationer under t.ho new Act. and would have to report herself at oertain intervale to a lady who would oonsent- to act in the ma.tter aa a probation officer. If her conduct was not satis- factory during the term of probation, she would be dealt with on the original charge in the usual manner. The girl gave her promise to attend, and left the court with her mother.
