<hi rend="italic">Policeman F</hi> 63). On the 2nd November, about 12.45 in the morning, I was on duty in Great St Andrew's Street, about 100 yards from Aldridge's—I noticed three men loitering about—one of them went into a doorway at the corner of Tower Street—I went towards him—he left there, and went towards two men who were standing against the prosecutor's house—I went up to them—I heard one of them say, "Is it all right?" twice—I asked what they were loitering about there for—they went away—I think the prisoner came out of the Prince Albert public-house, and looked round very cautiously—he saw me and Campbell, another constable, who had come up, and immediately ran away up West Street—I pursued him up West Street, down Litchfield Street, up Princes Court, into Princes Row; and when I got up to him there, he was right bang on the top of police-constable 180, who was lying on the flat of his back, struggling with the prisoner—I pulled him off, and we brought him back to the public-house—while we were ringing the landlord up, another man ran out of the door of the public-house—two constables went after him, but did not catch him—when I got into the house I saw this sack in front of the bar, containing this property.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Was it after you got back that you saw the other man run out of the house?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—I did not say anything to the prisoner about the sack—I saw the prisoner come out of the house—I believe he opened the door—it was shut after he came out, and when we went back we found it shut—the other man ran out of another door.</p>

<hi rend="italic">C</hi> and knock him down, and when I came up to him I pulled him off, and, with the other constable's assistance, took him back to the house—I saw another man run out of the same house—I followed him down St. Martin's Lane and Long Acre—he got into some court, and I lost sight of him.</p>

I live at 10, Duke Street, London Bridge—I was formerly in the Marine Artillery, stationed at Portsmouth—on Wednesday night I came up to London—I got to the Waterloo Station about 8 o'clock—I saw the prisoner Fryer there with another man, not Carr—I had a bag with me—I asked them the way to London Bridge—I did not speak to either one, I asked them both—Fryer offered to show me the way, and asked whether he should carry my bag—I said yes, he might, and we all went to London Bridge—I had stopped at a coffee house, 10, Duke Street, before, and I wished to go there again—we went in, and I engaged a lodging for the night, and paid for it—we came out again, and Fryer went with me to the Monument—I was to have met a friend there—Fryer then asked me if I should like to hear a song—I said, "Yes," and he told me that the Cambridge Music Hall was the nearest—I agreed to go—we had a glass of ale before we went in, and I gave the man 6
