PHASES OF JUVENILE LlF, Shocking Revelations at Now-part. -.0. the magistrates at the Newport, Borougt Police-court to-day were chiefly occupied in dealing with a number of cases in which the principals were juveniles. The first; case was that of two lads named Evans, aged 11 and nine years, whom the Newport School Board recom* mended should be sent to an industrial schocl, The mother of the lads was said ti be a womar of immoral character, who is at present in prisoo for drunkenness. The father wasat sea,and thechil dren were therefore left destitute. The mother, it appeared, hadjalso been sent to prison iol neglecting the boys. The Benoh decided to send the lads to the school at Stockport.—Afterwards William Henry Buck, aged 12, and Chaxlet Wilkins, aged eight, came up from the cells, and when charged pleaded guilty to stealing two sovereigns from the till of the boot department of the Dock-street Branch of the Newport Co- operative Society on Saturday evening. Before the robbery Wilkins went into the shop and asked the young lady for a piece of bread. Both lads hung round for some time, and then, whilst Buck kept watch, Wiikins seized an opportunity when the assistants were momentarily absent to sneak in and rob the till, from which JB4 2i was missed. Buck received two half sovereigns, and he purchased a watch at the shop of Mr Wolfe Phillips for 89 6d. Buck said that his father had sent him for the watch and asked for a receipt to take to his parent. Wilkins changed his sovereign and distributed most of the silver amongst his boy friends. Both boys were also charged with stealing money from tba till of another shop. Wilkins has been prosecuted on six previous occasions, the last being on the 19th U11., when he was confined in the cells and birched. The father now told the court that he had kopt him in the house up to Saturday morn- ing last, when he was allowed out for the first time, with the result that he was the principal in two robberies. Buck was stated to be suffering from a loathsome disease. The magistrates expressed surprise at this, but the police stated that it was so, and that he was being medically attended. The Bench sentenced both lads to ten days' imprisonment and to a term of five years in a reformatory school.—Four other youngsters who wers caught in the act of stealing tar barrels from the Liverpool Wharf and the Great Western Railway, Budge-street, which they intended to use to celebrate the anniversary of the detection of the Gunpowder Plot this evening, were fined Is each, or one day each in the cells.
