ATTEMPTING TO STEAL FROM THE TILL.

John Keeth and David Robinson were charged with having on the 2nd of July, attempted to take money from a till in the “Laurel Tree” public house. St. Gregory's.

The case was proved by the evidence of the landlady, Mrs. Bradley, who said she saw the prisoner Keeth, who was in the “Laurel Tree,” lean over the counter with the key of the till in his hand, trying to unlock the till. The other prisoner was with him at the time, but the landlady did not see him do anything.

P.I. Else having proved apprehending the prisoners, Supt. Davies stated that they were in the habit of going to public houses for the purpose of singing.

The prisoner Robinson said he had been in the Hussars, and had served in the Indian Mutiny; and had received his discharge.

The Supt. said he should like to know where prisoner's discharge was, if what he had said were correct.

Prisoner said he had lost it; but that he could get some persons to confirm his statement.

The prisoners were sentenced to one months' hard labour in the City Gaol.
