My house was open at about 3 o'clock, in the morning of 28th July, and a party of men and women knocked at the door—I refused to let the women in, because it was late, and they remained outside—the prisoner and three others came in—there were no other people there, and there was no one assisting me—they called for some drink, and when it amounted to 2
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>., I asked for some money; a watch was offered me, and I said, "Well, I will take that as security for what you have had to drink"—they went on, till it came to 7
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>., and I lent them 5
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>.; the whole reckoning then came to 12
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>.; they had been drinking two hours—a few minutes afterwards, I missed one of them, and was suddenly seized by the neck from behind—(when I put the watch into my pocket, the prisoner said to the others, "Do you see?")—Iwas garroted from behind, and the prisoner and the others ran round the bar, and rushed at my pockets, and some of my money fell on the ground—I</p>

<p>lost the watch and 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., four sovereigns and 1
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. worth of silver, and the rest I picked up after they were gone—I became insensible, and when I came to myself, I found myself in a pool of blood, from my mouth and nose, and they were all gone—I do not think I was insensible more than a quarter of an hour—I believe they had gone out and spoken to the women, but I did not go from behind my bar—three of them have been convicted, but I do not remember seeing the third one; the police swore to him.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. RIBTON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Why do you say that some of them went to the door?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Because in three hours it is very likely, and I saw them go to the door, but cannot say which of them it was; I had the chain on, to prevent anybody coming in, but they could easily undo that without my knowing it—all West-end houses are night houses, and when I took the house the previous landlord had done no business except at night; I keep it very select; and do not allow females in after hours—I close between 2 and 3 o'clock in the morning, and sometimes earlier; I was closing when they knocked—not above twenty people had been in that night, after 12 o'clock—Ihave no potman; I have a barmaid; she went to bed about 12 o'clock—Iwas alone in the shop from 12 o'clock—I had had very little to drink, I had some beer with my supper about 12 o'clock, and I had some lemonade with the prisoner; there might have been some brandy in it; lemonade and brandy was what they were drinking—I took the prisoner for a waiter—Ihad seen him frequently at the bar before; we have many waiters after hours—it was about 5 o'clock, or a little after, that the violence was used to me—I had not seen the constable before that; he was on the opposite side of the street—I saw the men speaking through the chink of the door, but do not know whether they removed the chain; they might have done so without my seeing them—when I came to my senses, I went out, and spoke to a con
<lb/>stable, and he came in—I had seen the prisoner in my house on several occa
<lb/>sions; he was there two or three nights before, or it may be four, but not more.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. METCALFE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Had the prisoner an opportunity of seeing that you were alone?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—I knew his features perfectly well, I had known him six months, and am positive he is one of the men—Liversage, Jones, and Gough, are the other men who were tried.</p>

On Saturday afternoon, 10th April; the prisoners came, and Little asked me to show him some silk neck handkerchiefs—I did so; he said that they were not exactly what he wanted—among them was one of blue gauze silk; he opened that, spread it out over the other goods, and said something to Wheelan which I could not hear—he then said, "I want something of the half-mourning sort, with a sprig or a spot upon it—my assistant went to the front of the counter, and accused Wheelan of having some handkerchiefs under his coat—Little immediately ran out of the shop, and I laid hold of Wheelan by the collar—after a short time, Little was brought back, and I asked him what he ran away for; he said that he was in a hurry to see Mr. Jones—they were taken to the station.</p>

<lb/>neath—somecommunication then passed between the two prisoners, and Wheelan held the coat up which was on his arm, put his hand under the counter, dropped the gauze handkerchief with his other hand, and I distinctly saw one of the handkerchiefs in his hand—they then wanted to see some more handkerchiefs, but I went and accused him of having some under his coat; I wished to examine his coat, but he refused to let me—while we were struggling, Little ran out; I went out after him, and lost sight of him—while we were struggling, Wheelan must have dropped the handkerchief again among the others, because I distinctly saw him take it, and he tucked the tail of the coat underneath, so that it should not be seen.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Little. Q.</hi> What sort of a handkerchief was it?

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I have none; I am out of employ, and have been for about ten weeks—during that time, I have been at my mother's; she takes in washing, and I go round gathering the things—my last master was Mr. Duffield, in the London Road—Ileft because be sold the house, and the other landlord brought his potman with him—I saw Riley at the corner of King's Head Court, along with Reardon—when Reardon and Welch were together, Shea came between them—Reardonand Riley were standing close to each other; Shea was not close to them; he was leaning against the public house—Shea did not rush out; he walked up—he did not have to walk above two or three yards—he did not come rushing out of Bell Court—I suppose there is about twenty yards distance—I did not see Welch receive any blow; I saw him fell when he and Shea had a struggle—he was not knocked down in the road; he caught hold of Shea, and they both fell—when he got up again, he seized Reardon again by the hair of her head—Shea did not strike the prosecutor at all—he did not put his arm round his neck—I never saw him till he was going to fall, and them he caught hold of Welch—Welch and Shea fell together, in consequence of a struggle.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You heard Welch ask the other constable for a staff?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—theother one, not Miller—the other constable said he would not give it him—Welch said, "I am a constable of the

On 13th April, I saw Welch at his mother's house, between 8 and 9 o'clock—I saw him leave his mother's house, No. 4, Holborn Buildings; he had a child with him about two years old—I followed him down Gray's Inn Lane—he walked slowly up Gray's Inn Lane—he arrived at King's Head Court—he happened to make a step outside the kerb, and was very near the cause of the child's falling; by some means, he saved the child—the two female prisoners were both standing talk
<lb/>ing at the corner of King's Head Court—I saw Shea; he was not along with the women, he stood by himself—it might be about two yards off—Welch turned to the two females, and he said, "Why don't you mind?"—Reardon said, "You can't say it was our fault; it was entirely your own fault"—he said, "No, it was not; it was your fault; and besides, I don't see what you do standing about here"—Reardon said, "I am sure there are plenty of police about Gray's Inn Lane, that know their duty, without your interfering"—Welch said, "Do you know who I am, and what I am?"—Reardon said, "Yes,
<hi rend="italic">Tim</hi> Welch, the policeman, but you are not to frighten people"—Welch took his watch guard in his left hand, and said, "Do you see this, would not you like to have it? I suppose this is what you are after"—Reardon smiled and said, "You have only had that since you have been in the police, and and you may soon have to lose it again, like a great many others"—Welch put his fingers close to her face, and she said, "If you put your fingers in my face, I will shove you into the road," and he did it twice more, and she shoved him—he put his finger to his mouth and whistled; he stepped off, and looked in the direction of Holborn, and he caught sight of the policeman—hewent to Reardon, and said, "What do you say now?" and he seized her by the hair of her head and dragged her very near the ground—Shea came up, and said, "Don't pull the woman in that way"—Welsh seized Shea by the collar, a struggle took place, he let go Reardon, and they both struggled and fell in the road—Welch left the child unprotected, and I took it in my arms—I saw no watch; I saw the chain; he held it up—if he had had a watch I must have seen it—I saw them both in the road—the policeman assisted them up—I did not see them get up—I conveyed the child carefully home to its parents, No. 4, Holborn Buildings—I knew that Welch's parents and Shea's parents knew one another—I do not know that Shea worked at Mr. Cubitt's; all the work that I knew him to do was his mother's household work—the greatest number of persons who were about might be forty or fifty—I am sure there were above twenty.</p>

<lb/>cutor seized her, and said, "You shall not go," and they had a struggle, and then Shea seemed to join in—he seemed as if he joined in to prevent it—my principal thing was to protect my window, and the mob moved on—I saw no attempt at robbery whatever—they moved into the road, one house from mine— I did not see the end of the struggle—they fought in the road—they appeared to be down on the ground in the road, and when they got up, the prosecutor had a young man in one hand, and a young woman in the other—I did not see any watch hanging out—I did not see any chain—there was a mob collected, a crowd perhaps of fifty persons—they had passed the window, and I paid no further attention.</p>

<lb/>tion it was—I know Mr. Plant—I have had no transaction with him through the prisoner—I do not recollect the name of Phillips—the prisoner never paid any money over to me; I do not suppose he paid me more than three items while he was with me—he has had money on account; he has overdrawn his commission account—there have been several transactions between us, but not such a great many—he had money on account from me, and, in addition to that, he detained the money he had from customers—that has been going on for a considerable time, but I was not aware of his having money in his hands which he received from customers—the first time he retained money, to my knowledge, was the time he left this list on my desk—I cannot say what the earliest date is of the receipt of moneys by him which he has not paid over to me, because I have not the bill-heads, but I should think it is about three months ago; they were, at all events, moneys which were due before he left—the earliest is Silverlock's, that became due about 4th Feb., and I inquired about the money on the morning he left the paper on my desk—I did not inquire of Silverlock's whether it was paid, till I found out other items being received—Whittaker's account was due on 4th Feb.; I made no inquiry about that, till this paper was sent in to me—it may have been sent early in March, but I cannot recollect the day; I cannot say what time it was sent in—I know a person named Briggs; I do not recollect any transac
