Complainant, being sworn, said. I am a tin-plate worker, living at the Hutt. On Tuesday last I was at the Taita, in Mr. Robert''s shop, when the two prisoners came in, seized hold of me by the collar, and dragged me outside; they then threw me down, and rifled my pockets, taking from the pockets four shillings in silver, they then went away I got up and picked up a shilling and some coppers off the ground.
Cross-examined by Mr. Borlase, counsel for the defence - The prisoner Hayward keeps the Albion Hotel, opposite the shop where I was working. Miller is Hayward''s cook. I was in the tap of the Albion just before. Hayward accused me of taking money from his till. He said I had taken the money, and that it was marked. The blacksmith was in the shop.
Mr. Borlase — How many times have you been up for thieving
Witness — I can''t exactly remember.
Mr. Borlase — Were you ever brought up before the Supreme Court.
Witness — No, no!— Yes, I was.
Mr. Borlase — What for
Witness - For picking up a purse. (Laughter.)
Mr. Borlase — And what did you get for that
Witness - Nine months.
Mr. Borlase - Were you ever, at Wanganni, brought up for thieving?
Witness - No never for thieving, I have been occasionally had up for drunkenness.
Mr. Borlase — Has Mr. Whyte, at the Hutt, ever accused you of robbing his till
Witness — No
Mr. Borlase — That will do. Now don''t you leave the Court, as I shall have something else to say to you presently.
Duncan Bethune, sworn, said - I am a blacksmith. I work for Mr. Roberts at the Taita. The prosecutor was leaning over the lower half of the shop door, when the prisoner Hayward came up, and accused Daniel of robbing the till. Hayward said he had marked some money, he took five shillings out of prosecutor''s pocket, and called me to witness that three of the shillings were marked, this happened about 11 p.m. last Friday.
This closed the case against the two prisoners, who were at once discharged.
-
CHARGE OF ROBBERY AGAINST DANIELS.
Robert Daniells, the prosecutor in the previous case, was then placed at the bar, charged with having stolen 3s from the till of the Albion Hotel. From the evidence given by Mr. Hayward and Martin Miller, it appeared that Daniels had robbed the till, and that the money he took, and of which he afterwards said he had been robbed, was marked by Mr. Hayward. The prisoner was convicted, and evidence having been given of a previous conviction against him of robbing a dwelling-house, he was sentenced to three months'' imprisonment with hard labor.
