<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. from Benson, on 21st November—the prisoner represented them as monthly accounts; that is, we should send in this month and receive the next—up to December, 1868, I made no profit—it was my first year in business—I had to pay away a great deal of money—the prisoner kept the cash-book—he was taken into custody on the 10th January—I should think the cash-book had been out of the place quite a month before that—I made no entries, the prisoner kept it entirely—I paid all my own bills, and ordered in all my own stuff—I don't know where the cash-book comes from.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Do you mean to say that book was not brought to you by the prisoner's brother, long before the prisoner was taken into custody?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> It was brought to me by his brother on 22nd December, with a letter—I had never balanced the book myself—I began business in January, 1867; the prisoner came to me in February, he was in a situation at Westminster—I can sign my name, I can't keep accounts, that was the reason I employed him and gave him such an advantage, 28
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. a week and a third of the profits—in 1867, my first year, I did not make any profit; I had to find my business—the first year he brought me what money was due to me—I never made out an account, or got him to do it, to see what was due to each—I have machinery, I bought that myself—I had money of my own to start with, about 150

<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. when I first started, of my own money—I bought the machinery with that—all the machinery and benches were bought out of my capital that I started with—that did not take all my capital, very nearly all—I was working the business as well—the second year, when things were a little better, I took a couple of pounds out of the business, or something like that, or perhaps more; I took no other sums; I might have taken a few shillings more than 2
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. a week—I did not keep any account of what I did take—I have not had 3
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. a week; of course I took a living out of it—I had to pay my wages, my bills, and everything else, and after that there was nothing else left—I lived at 49, King Square, Goswell Road—I don't rent the house—I had apartments in the house—I have a wife and family—I kept them out of the business—I did not pay for the machinery out of the business—I paid for it out of the capital—I have not been repaid out of the business—I had the 150

I am a tailor, of Marlborough Road, Carnaby Street—on Monday morning, 11th January, about 6 o'clock, I was in a public-house in John Street—I saw six or seven persons there altogether—the prisoners were among them—they were sitting in the parlour—I treated them, and as I was coming away they knocked me down on a form, and put their hands on my mouth, and took 30

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Some rum and some beer—I had had about two glasses of rum, and I don't know how much beer—they told Carroll to go out of the room while they were robbing me, and when he came back he saw them knocking me down and taking the money out of my pocket—I knew the prisoners by sight before—Mitchell I knew a good bit—I don't suppose anybody saw me with the 30
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. when I went into the room—it would have been very little good for me to call out, because they would have hindered me by putting their hands on my mouth—that prevented my screaming—they had their hands over my mouth until they had taken the money out of my pocket—as they were leaving the room I did call out, and said I knew them—that was all I said—I told the land

<hi rend="italic">Prisoner's Defence.</hi> I have a statement to make, which I hope you will believe to be true. I have been a working man now for a great many years, and have had some thousands of ounces of silver through my hands. Owing to misfortune, I left my employers, and had no alternative then but to set up businees for myself, unfortunately, without friends. I took a shop, and could not meet the demands for rent, and, having a wife and five children. to support, I fell into arrears. I called upon Redgrave to know if he could do anything for me. I had a gold chain, which he pledged, and so paid a portion of the rent that was owing. The chain was wanted, and I began to be uneasy, when Redgrave said he had the means of making money, but that I should have his liberty in my hands. I told him he must take all the responsibility upon himself. He then manufactured a cup, and pledged it in Long Acre for 2
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. 6
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. He afterwards made and plated other cups, and pawned them. One evening he asked me to pledge one, and I took it to dir. Morgan's. I had nothing to do with making the cups, or depositing the mark, taking the impression, or plating them. When I pledged the</p>

I live at 2, Denmark Terrace, Fulham—on 18th June, I was married to the prisoner at St. Peter's Church, Westminster—he said that he was single—I got this certificate from the clergyman at the time—the prisoner had been paying his addresses to me for two years and a-half, and must have been courting me when he married his first wife—I then lived at Victoria Square, Pimlico—he used to come to the house some
<lb/>times, and I used to go out and walk with him—I have called at some of his lodgings, but never heard of any wife—ho represented himself as a bachelor—I lived with him seven months, and ceased to do so, because his wife found me out and showed me her marriage

<lb/>pointed a meeting with Striemer next day—I met him next day at a public-house in Sherborne Lane, I don't know the name of it—I brought the bill back to him and told him that my friend thought he could do with it, that it would answer his purpose, but that he did not wish to pay for it until he knew that he could make use of it—Striemer said he could not give up the bill on those conditions; that he had to pay a certain amount, whether the bill was used or not—I told him that I should get a friend of mine to endorse the bill, and wanted him to put that, down or get the endorsement upon it—the endorsement was there in blank—he did according to my instructions; he took the bill away and got this put in: "Pay to order," and I got the signature of "Lawrence & Dogoroff"—they were merchants in Thames Street at that time—the stamp was on it before Striemer told me that he had to give 30
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. to his party, whether the bill was used or not—I agreed to give him that, and told him that Mr. Templeton had promised me 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. for my trouble, and that I would share that with him—at the time I received the bill from him I gave him, I think, 10
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. in silver, and after
<lb/>wards further sums, amounting altogether to not quite 2
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—I gave the bill to Mr. Templeton—I received a smell cheque from him before I handed him the bill; I am not sure whether it was for 2

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You got the signature of Lawrence Dogoroff & Co. yourself?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, after I received it from Striemer—they are general merchants—Striemer told me the bill did not belong to him—I told him I wanted an accommodation bill—the transaction was altogether about an accommodation bill; that was what the bargain was about—he told me the bill would have to be met by whoever used it—I believe he told me he was selling it for a person named Gordon—I asked him for the bill; I told him I wanted one.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Are you sure you gave him more than 1

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I gave him a sovereign afterwards, that was all—he asked for more, because he had nothing for himself—he said the 1

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I am in my twenty-first year—Striemer was about seven months in the office of Messrs.

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Do you know that there is a person carrying on business as "Bassett & Co.," in Bury Street?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I know a man named Bein—I don't know Bassett—I think Bein carried on business as "Bassett & Co.," in Bury Street, St Mary Axe—I don't know that be rented part of Striemer's office there—I knew Striemer in Bury Street, and I knew Mr. Bein was there with him in that office, but whether he rented it of him I don't know—I don't know that he used it with him—I saw the name of Bassett on the door, and Bein and Striemer were there; it was "Bassett & Co.," on a brass plate on the door—I think Striemer's name was on the door also—I never saw him in the office there; I think I have only been in the office once—I was told that Bein carried on business in the name of "Bassett & Co." there—the only time I was in the office, he was not there—I don't know Gordon—I saw the name of "Gordon & Co." on the door of Striemer's office, in Nicholas Lane, and the name of "S. Striemer" was on the door also—I was there when the prisoners were apprehended by the oficers—I did not hear Striemer tell the officer that the dies and everything belonged to Gordon; I heard him say, "This office belongs to me, and you have no right to come here at all."—I did not hear him say anything about Gordon when the things were found—I did not go there in order to get the men there for the police—I did not go by accident; I went for some bills—I was employed to go and fetch bills, not by the detectives—I went there to fetch the bills, and the police watched me; my employer sent me to fetch the bills—is there any necessity to mention his name?—I was not aware that I was likely to be followed—I was not employed by the police at all—they were following me against my will, certainly.</p>

<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. GRIFFITHS</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Had you spoken to the police about going for these bills before you were followed by them?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I had not spoken to them about going for bills—I spoke to the police about bils, about an hour before I went there—they did not follow me, through my invitation—I don't expect to receive a farthing from the police if these men are convicted, or from anyone else: not one penny—no money matters have been mentioned to me—I think I have been followed by the police before—somebody told me I was followed—I have been taken into custody and committed for trial—that was for forgery—I say positively that that is Kunacke's writing on the bill—I was positive before the Magistrate—I said then, "I believe the first endorsement on the back of the second bill, 'Byron, Beale, and Co.,' is in the handwriting of Kunacke"—I have not seen him write in my presence, but I know his handwriting so well that I can say it is his handwriting—I don't know whether I ever received letters from him—I think I have—I said before the Magistrate that I was so familiar with his handwriting that I could swear that was his—I had many hill transactions before I was arrested—I am a commission agent—the bill transactions I had with Kunacko were not good bills—I knew they were not good.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. LEWIS</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> What do you mean by saying they were not good bills!
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> They were not genuine bills—not genuine acceptances—I knew they were not—they were bills that would not be paid—the parties who had them must take them up—I was committed to this Court on a charge of forgery, and acquitted—I received two bills of exchange from the man Stoven, and gave them away, and I was given into custody for uttering them—it was afterwards proved that I was innocent, and I was acquitted and discharged by the Court here—that was in July, 1867—I had nothing to do with the police in connection with this transaction.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You say you spoke to the police an hour before you went to the place?
