<lb/>perty there which did not belong to him and which had been stolen—I searched the house, and found the property mentioned in this list—the whole of this property was in the front room, just at the foot of the bed, under the bed, and in a cupboard—I also found this box and this piece of canvas—I have nearly the whole of the 62

<lb/>wards produced them to Mr. Davis—I told Sandle he would be charged at present with the unlawful possession of them and he would be con

<p>28th, when Sandle was charged with stealing and receiving the goods, He said the goods had been brought by a man he did not know; he did not know his name or where he lived—at 4 that same afternoon I saw Steinbaur at the Thames Police-station—I knew him by seeing him frequently going in and out of 20, Scott Street, the previous week, while I was watching there—he came into the station and said "Is there any one here in custody of the name of Sandle?" I said "There is a man in custody by that name, but he is not here, he is at Seething Lane"—he said "I want to leave some money for some food for him"—I said "What is your name?" he said" My name is Lawson"—I went with him to Seething Lane Police-station—I said to the inspector "This gentleman wants to leave some money for Sandle"—the inspector said "Yes, do you know Sandle?" he said "Yes"—the inspector had Sandle fetched out, and he said to Sandle in Steinbaur's presence "Do you know this man?" he said "Yes, sir, that is the man that brought the goods to my house, and we are working the matter together"—he made no reply to that—the inspector said "I did not ask you that, I only asked you if you knew him"—Steinbaur left the station—I followed him and said I should arrest him, and he would be charged with being concerned with Sandle in stealing and receiving a large quantity of goods from Messrs. Outram and Co. on 19th May—he said "Well, I have been fairly trapped this time, that is doing a
<hi rend="italic">pal</hi> good"—on the way to the station he said "I hope you won't take me to the
<hi rend="italic">shop"</hi> (meaning the station); "if you don't I can tell you where there is hundreds of pounds' worth of property"—I said he would have to go and be charged—he said "If I am charged you will get no further information from me"—at the station he gave his address 118, Backchurch Lane, Whitechapel—I afterwards went there with Detectives Latter and Kenniston, and on the dressing-table in the bedroom, in the presence of the landlord, I found these 11 cotton pocket-handkerchiefs—I took them to the station and showed them to Steinbaur and said "I found these pocket handkerchiefs in your bed-room, which have been identified as a portion of the property stolen from Messrs. Outram; what have you got to say about them?"—he said "They were left by a man; I refuse to give any further information about them."</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>

The house in Scott Street was a small, dirty house—Sandle was not at work—he came to the door to meet us—he said he was a shoemaker—I saw a few tools—there were four room to the house—all the property belonging to Messrs.

<hi rend="italic">The Prisoner's Statement before the Magistrate.</hi> "My time to leave the prison was at 9 o'clock that morning. I had been sent to prison for four days. I asked the warder for my clothes, and he said they were lost, and after remaining in the cell for a long time and keeping knocking and asking for my clothes, as my mother was waiting outside for me, the last time he appeared at the cell door I asked him when I should be able to go home. He said 'They have lost your clothes,' and slammed the door. He said I was to get out the best way I could. He did not return with my clothes, and that threw me into temptation, and I did wrong no doubt."</p>

I live at 41, Sandringham Road—on Friday night, 25th May, about 10 o'clock, I was in Pond Lane Fields, some men came up to me—I recognize the three prisoners—Ilott asked me for some tobacco—I told him I had none, he then asked me for some money for beer, which I refused, upon which he snatched at my chain and the watch came out in his hand—he broke it from the chain and ran away, I followed—one of them struck me and gave me a black eye—we were fighting for some little time, and I fell to the ground—my stick fell out of my hand and another man not in custody hit me over the arm with my stick and broke it—they all ran away, and we lost them in a brick
<lb/>field—I am certain the prisoners are three out of the four who attacked me—on the morning of 27th May I saw the two Archers at the police station amongst others and picked them out—I saw Ilott on the Friday following at the station—he was placed with fifteen others and I picked him out—this is my watch (

I was first examined at the police-court when the two Archers were in custody—the second time Ilott and another man were in custody—they were all perfect strangers to me—Pond Lane Fields is a place were there are cricketers—this happened at 10 at night—when I was first examined I said I believed that William Archer was the man who snatched my watch, but I afterwards corrected—I only said to the best of my belief—the detective took me to identify Ilott about 12 at night to the Hackney Station—the others were all about his own size, and some of them dressed in the same way—a man named Burridge was in custody—at first I picked him out as the man that took my watch, but the Magistrate discharged him—it was a mistake, and the Magistrate gave him the advantage of it—I could distinguish their faces when they attacked me, it was not perfectly dark—it lasted altogether about a quarter of an hour.</p>

In consequence of what I heard from the last witness I went to the house of the prisoners Archer about 1.30 on Sunday morning—I found the Archers both in bed—I said to Ernest "I shall take you into custody for being concerned with others in stealing a watch from a person in Pond Lane Fields on Friday night, the 25th"—he said "I know nothing about it"—I said "Now, remember, you sold it to Ackerman"—he said "No, I did not"—at the station, when Ackerman came in he said "Yes, that is the one, I gave him 9

<lb/>gested they should change places—they were standing side by side—I have known Ilott's father for twenty years as a respectable man working for Mr. Brown, a builder.</p>

I apprehended William Archer and told him it was on suspicion of being concerned with his brother and two others not in custody for stealing a watch from the person of William Heap, and assaulting him, in Pond Lane Fields, at 10 o'clock on Friday night, the 25th—he said "I can prove I was not there"—he was taken to the station and placed among others—on June 1 I went to 22, Fourfield Road—I there saw Ilott, I told him the charge—he said "I know nothing about it"—he was taken to the station and placed Among others.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. GEOGHEGAN</hi>. I took Burridge into custody—he lives about 70 or 80 yards from Ilott—I made inquiries about Ilott—he works for Mr. Burridge, and I believe he is a respectable lad—his father is a respectable man, but I have seen Ilott in bad company.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Ernest Archer's Defence.</hi> I was crossing Pond Lane Fields on May 26 and picked a watch up, it was lying on the grass. I carried it about with me all day. I could not find an owner, so in the evening I showed it to Ackerman; he said he knew a man that wanted to buy a watch, and I left it with him to show him. I met him afterwards and he gave me a portion of the money. The next night I was taken to the station, and the prosecutor picked out my brother but did not identify me; he said "I only think I recognize Ernest Archer."</p>
<hi rend="italic">William Archers Defence.</hi> When I was taken I was placed beside three older men I was the only lad there, and I suppose that was the reason the prosecutor identified me. I really know nothing at all about the case. I was a mile and a half from where it took place. The prosecutor said at the police-court that he was not certain about me, he only Thought it was me.</p>

<lb/>wards, and over 13 inches from side to side—the thick skin on the right heel was removed by the scald, and the parts just above were quite blistered—to have scalded it in that way I should say the water must have been boiling, or very nearly so—the cause of death was the shock to the system from the scalding—when a large portion of the skin is injured in this way it is dangerous, especially with children; it ought to have been noticed immediately; practically nothing was done, the ointment was of no use—the prisoner said something about the child falling about, giving it a blow and falling against the mantelpiece—I asked her when the scalding occurred—she said in the bath, and the first thing that attracted her attention to the child was the skin peeling off—I asked her "Was not the water boiling?" she said not, that she had added some cold water to it, and that she had tested the temperature with her hands—I said a careful woman would have tested it with her elbow, or some more sensitive part.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="188306250033"/>
<p>there—I said "How did this happen?"—she said "I could not sleep this morning, so I got up early to give the child a bath; it is a very dirty child"—I said "What time was it?"—she said "About 7 o'clock"—I said "How about her being scalded like this? did not you try the water before you put her in?"—she said "Yes, with my hand"—I said "Which hand?"—she said "Both"—I noticed her hands; there was no sign of any burning or scalding—I said "How much water was there?"—she said "Two saucepans of boiling and two cans of cold"—I said "How did you know that the child was being scalded? did not she scream?"—she said "Not until I saw the skin coming off; she did not cry more than usual; she always cries when being bathed"—I said "Did not you take it to the doctor?"—she said no, as she did not cry she did not think it was so bad—I then said "How about these bruises?" pointing to the right eye, which was black—there was some hesitation, when Laurence said "She done it"—the prisoner said "Yes, I own I done that; I gave her a smack on the head and knocked her against the fireplace"—I said "When was that?"—she said "On Wednesday last, because she was dirty"—I said "But what about these?" pointing to the left side, where she was black at the back of the ear—Laurence said "She done it"—the prisoner made no reply—she said to Laurence "You shook her the other day; you nearly shook the life out of her; you gave her a smack on the head and said you wished she was dead"—he said "I never knocked the child about"—she said "Ain't you, though "—I consulted with the doctor and took the prisoner into custody for causing the child's death—she made no reply—the man was also taken into custody, but was discharged by the Magistrate.</p>
<hi rend="italic">The Prisoner's Statement before the Magistrate.</hi> "I did not bath the child with the intention of doing it any harm, neither did I cause all the bruises about the child. I only beat the child when it was so dirty, to break her of her dirty habits."</p>

<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. a week for keeping it—the father came with Laurence and fetched it away, and said they were going to take it home—they brought it back to me for a day at the latter end of February, and then it was so fat it really could not stand, it fell about so—I have not seen it since—when it first came to me I could see its bones through the skin—with the greatest care I brought it up—I had to go to the doctor twice a week; it was ordered cod-liver oil.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> It was a healthy child, but very dirty, through the mother's neglect.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Prisoner's Defence.</hi> I did not bath the child with the intention of causing it any harm; I was always in the habit of bathing it before I did my work. I only put two saucepans of hot and two quarts of cold. The child did not cry more than usual. After a few minutes it cried more, and I saw the skin coming off, and I took her out and put a cloth round her. I did not cause the bruises; it fell about very much. When I took her to the doctor he said she was dropsical. I took her to the children's hospital at Shadwell for two or three months, till I could not carry her, she was so fat. The doctor said she might die at any moment, at she was dropsical.</p>

I live at 6, Smith Street, Westminster—I am an engineer's labourer—about 11.30 on the night of 7th June I was at the corner of George Street and King Street, Westminster, talking to Thomas Leatherbarrow—he was a cab proprietor aid driver, and was between 38 and 39 years of age—I had known him for some months—on this occasion he was with his cab, which was standing outside the public-house—as we were talking together the prisoner came up; I did not know him—he was intoxicated—he said to the deceased "You are a very fine man, you are"—the deceased replied "You are a fine-looking old chap"—the prisoner was very abusive and used bad language to the deceased, and made a blow at him with his stick—the deceased put up his left arm to prevent it, and then he pushed the prisoner from him with his right hand—he staggered back about two yards and his hat fell off—he picked his hat up with one hand and rushed forward with his stick in the other, and lunged it forward into the deceased's eye—he spun round and fell at my feet on his back—I found that he was insensible—I assisted a constable in putting him into a cab and went with him to the hospital and assisted in putting him to bed—he was bleeding very much from the eye and was insensible the whole time—there had been no provocation beyond what I have stated, not an angry word—when the deceased fell, the prisoner turned the corner and went away—I did not see Mr. Wallis there.</p>

<p>them, coming nearer—I did not notice any slanging taking place; I did not see the hat fall or any push or blow—I saw them after that; I saw them standing before the deceased had been injured at all—I have described it in this way: "It seemed to me that the deceased came on to the stick as much as the stick was pushed on him"—it was a little of both—what I meant was, that the stick was pushed out, and he then delivered the lunge; the pass of the stick was delivered first, and then, after that, the stick came into collision with his eye; they seemed advancing towards each other; the prisoner was staggering; he was dead drunk—I should certainly think he did not know what he was about.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> I mean that there must have been force behind the stick—the deceased was a heavy man—I don't think that his running on the stick would have caused such an injury—I should say that there must have been more force used by the prisoner, than by the man advancing.</p>
