About ten p.m. on 2nd June I was standing in Brick Lane, Whitechapel Road, and I saw the prisoner and another man take a truck down Heneage Street and into a yard; to the best of my belief Read stopped outside while the other man took it in; I could not quite see—I kept observation on the yard, and saw the truck there next morning—about three p.m. on the 5th I saw the prisoner and a man named Edwards go down the yard—I and Detective Kendal, in plain clothes, went down the yard, and Read ran into the stable at the rear—Edwards did not run away; he threw down this pair of pincers and this nut—we took him into custody—he said, in the prisoner's hearing, "Here, take the little man in custody; lie employed me"; and he began to swear at the prisoner and abuse him, and said, "This is a nice thing you have got me into"—Read said nothing—I arrested Read, and we took them both to Commercial Street Station—I went back to the yard for the truck—outside the yard I saw a costermonger's barrow, and Sutton was standing at the back of the truck taking it to pieces; Sutton threw this nut towards the dung-pit, and dropped this screw wrench—he said certain things—Sutton was arrested; he and Edwards were dis
<lb/>charged—I found a knife on the step of a brake by the side of the truck; none of the tools belonged to any person at the yard—I had seen the barrow before.</p>

<hi rend="italic">row</hi> in Lambel Street, close to my door—I went up and saw the prisoners, the prosecutor, and others—I heard Henry Volger say to the prosecutor, "You tried to take liberties with my wife," and he made a rush at him, and then he went away—Mrs. Volger said to the prosecutor, "You owe me 5s., and I have got your watch; when you give me the 5s. I will give you the watch"—three policemen came up and took the prisoners into custody—the prosecutor had a mark on his hat and forehead, as if he had been knocked down or something—my husband came out after me—I did not know the two prisoners.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by Henry Volger.</hi> I did not say to the Magistrate that I was looking out at the window when I saw the crowd and heard your wife speak; I was standing at my door.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">By the</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>. When Mrs. Volger said, "You owe me 5s., and I have your watch," the prosecutor said nothing—both prisoners were standing together when it was said—she did not say what he owed her 5s. for—that was before the policemen came—I did not notice if he appeared worse for liquor—we went to the station with the prisoners; they were charged there.</p>

<hi rend="italic">rowing</hi> and quarrelling and excited, and they walked away quarrelling into another street, and stopped there with the crowd till the police came; the prosecutor was asking for his watch—the police took the woman into custody; the male prisoner had gone away when they came—I went with them to the station.</p>

<lb/>self"—the prosecutor had been drinking, but he knew perfectly well what he was about—the prisoners had been drinking a little, but knew perfectly well what they were doing—no money was found on the male prisoner—on his collar were blood stains—the prisoner said he had cut his hand—the prosecutor had an awful black eye, and he had a wound.</p>

<lb/>worth—on 8th May I was living at 2, Sidney Street, Gray's Inn Road, with the deceased, John Hackett Jones, as his wife—I had been living with him since 20th February last; I had known him some years; he was a carpenter and joiner; he and the prisoner worked together; they were not related—on the night of 8th May we left home at twenty minutes to ten, and went for a walk; on returning, we came down Euston Road; when we got to the corner of Belgrave Street we met the prisoner: he came out of Belgrave Street; he rushed up to the deceased, called him a b----swine, and deliberately thrust his umbrella into his face; I</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="189106290015"/>
<p>screamed for a constable, and the prisoner ran away—the deceased merely snatched the umbrella out of the prisoner's hand; he did nothing to him—a constable came up and took the deceased to the Gray's Inn Road Hospital—the deceased handed the umbrella to me, and I gave it to the constable—I have known the prisoner between ten and eleven years; at one time I lived with him, and had three children by him; I left him five years next September; I had not seen or heard of him since until this occurrence—the deceased was quite well at the time this happened.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> As far as I know there was no ill-feeling between them—I could not say whether the prisoner was drunk or sober on this night, he ran away immediately it was done—I had not been drinking—the deceased only raised his hand to snatch the umbrella from the prisoner—the prisoner plunged it at him—I did not see the prisoner afterwards till I had issued the warrant—he never told me that he was exceedingly sorry, and that it was an accident.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">By the</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>. I left the prisoner five years ago, and took the children, and have maintained them ever since—the only reason for this I can conclude was that the prisoner was angry with me for living with the deceased.</p>

<lb/>ing very much from the right eye; I took him to the Royal Free Hos
<lb/>pital—the last witness handed me the umbrella—I examined it; I found blood on the point, and a very small piece of flesh—the deceased made a statement to me, as well as the last witness.</p>

I was house surgeon at the Royal Free Hospital on 8th May, when the deceased was brought there—he had a wound of the lower eyelid, on the right side of the face, and he had apparently some injury to the eyeball itself; there was blood in it—he was then quite sensible—he became unconscious soon after, and so continued to the last—subsequently there were signs of cerebral irritation—on 11th May I found it necessary to extract the eyeball—in the course of that operation the nature of the injury was more fully disclosed—he died on May 16th—I then found that he had a hole in the bony roof of the orbit, that is the part of the skull which covers in the eye, the cavity in which the eye rests—on the eyeball being removed some part of the brain substance escaped through the hole in the bone—nothing more could be done, and the cause of death was injury to the brain, arising from some traumatic cause, from some violence of some sort—that was connected with the fracture—the wound was about half an inch square; the piece of bone was pushed backwards and so turned on a hinge, like a trapdoor, and so passed into the brain—such an umbrella as the one produced would cause such an injury, by the ferrule end—with the exception of some slight disease of the left lung the deceased was a healthy man.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> I found no evidence of his having been a hard drinker—a very slight stroke with a sharp weapon would be sufficient to destroy the eyeball; I do not call an umbrella a sharp weapon; a man swinging an umbrella about, and accidentally striking the eyeball, would be sufficient to account for the injury to the brain—I do not think it likely that the</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="189106290016"/>
<p>injury would be caused by the deceased drawing the umbrella forward against himself in the attempt to wrench it from the prisoner; if he fell against the point it might, provided the other end was fixed—the wound was three inches in length from the corner of the eye inwards.</p>

<p>

<p>Samuel Smith and Co., wholesale boot and shoe manufacturers—I have had business with the defendant for about five years—at the end of 1889 he was bankrupt, and made a private arrangement to pay 17s. 6d. in the £ to his creditors—he paid all creditors with the exception of four or five; we received the whole—about 20th October last year he came to see us—before that he had been in negotiation with us for us to advance money to him for the purpose of carrying on his business, and a balance sheet had been shown to some one on my behalf—we wrote and requested that a later balance-sheet should be shown—on 20th October he came and saw me and produced these two balance-sheets of 7th January and 14th October, 1890—the first one shows an estimated surplus of £418 19s.—in the second one the balance is not carried down, but the assets exceed the liabilities by £795 odd, practically £800—I called the prisoner's attention to the difference between the two balance-sheets, and asked him to account for the very large increase between January 7th and October 14th—he said he had been doing a larger trade; trade had been exceedingly good, and the amount of his gross profit had been exceedingly good, to the extent of 25 or 27 per cent, upon his returns—I asked him for his books, and he said he did not think they would be required, and they were left behind at Wrexham—I made an appointment to see him on the following Satur
<lb/>day, at Wrexham, at his own shop, to examine his books, and also cursorily to look through his stock—I attended pursuant to that appointment—I did not see his books; he said he had sent them up the previous day to my warehouse in London—I looked at certain portions of the stock to satisfy myself it had been purchased at a correct price, according to Jones's description, but I was able to make no further investigation—I returned to London on the Monday or Tuesday following—the books which Jones said he had sent had not arrived, and I did not get them till the 21st November—he brought me his banker's pass-book, a detailed account of his stock, and a diary containing his takings from 21st January—I asked for a list of creditors, and he said he had no other books; these were all he had—I went through the books—no book stated the liabilities; I satisfied myself as to assets—on that I came to this agreement with the prisoner on 21st November. (
<hi rend="italic">This was an agreement to advance</hi> £400
<hi rend="italic">to enable the prisoner to complete the purchase of the shop and premises at Hope Street, Wrexham, for</hi> £2,550,
<hi rend="italic">on his undertaking to obtain a first mortgage of the premises for</hi> £2,100
<hi rend="italic">at</hi> 4
<hi rend="italic">per cent, per annum, and to give the prosecutor a second mortgage for the advance, and to cover any indebtedness that might arise for goods or cash supplied from time to time; and also to give him a policy for</hi> £500
<hi rend="italic">on the life of his father in the Refuge Assurance Company; the cash loan to be represented by the prisoner's acceptance of the prosecutor's draft at six months' date, which would be renewed from time to time at interest of</hi> 5
<hi rend="italic">or</hi> 4
<hi rend="italic">per cent., according to the Bank rate; the prisoner to do all the business he could with the prosecutor and to give his goods the preference, and to permit him to inspect his books and take stock, so as to ascertain his position; to keep such account books as would show his position, and to adopt all suggestions the prosecutor might make for the better progress of his business, the arrangement to be terminated by the paying off of the indebtedness by the prosecutor giving three months' notice</hi>)—I paid him this cheque for £50, which has been passed through our bank and paid—Jones took it with him—two or three days afterwards I saw him, but before that I sent him a cheque for £100 in pursuance of the agreement in reply to his request in writing</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="189106290023"/>
<p>—then I had this letter of 27th November. (
<hi rend="italic">This from the prisoner stated that six of his creditors had taken proceedings against him, so he had not used the cheque, but returned it enclosed; that the property had been taken over by Morris and Co., and his solicitors had advised him to call his creditors together, and if they would give him time to pay he should do the same trade with the prosecutor as he had arranged, and repay him; and it added that he had made a little error in his last balance-sheet, that bills coming due for next year were in a book, and he had omitted putting them in the sheet; that they were not much, hut whatever turned up he should pay in full</hi>)—the £400 balance shown in the balance-sheet of January 7th, which was alleged to be prepared by independent parties, induced me to part with my money, and also the balance-sheet of 14th October.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> I certainly desire to prosecute the prisoner—the agree
<lb/>ment of 21st November is my composition; I have had no legal ex
<lb/>perience—I am carrying on my own wholesale business, and retail busi
<lb/>nesses in various parts—I parted with my money on the two balance sheets; nothing operated on my mind beyond the interview we had—all I have parted with is a cheque for £50, that is the only sum I am prose
<lb/>cuting the prisoner for—I knew he had been in difficulties, and that he had paid us a composition of 17s. 6d. in the £—before 21st November a bill for about £13 or £14 that the prisoner had given me had been dis
<lb/>honoured—that was 24th October, I think—I did not know the prisoner was illiterate; there are two totals in the second balance-sheet—I knew the prisoner was taking steps to purchase his own premises in the main street, Wrexham, and it was with reference to that purchase that he had these interviews with me; he asked me for an advance to enable him to complete the purchase—I took no steps to inquire as to the value of those premises—I have heard they are let at the present time; I do not know for how much—I should be surprised to hear they are let at £170 a year; they were offered to me at £120; the vendor's solicitors wrote to me before I prosecuted the prisoner—I ascertained from him he was pur
<lb/>chasing for £2,550; I do not suggest that was not correct—they were premises on which he had been for some years—I was to hand him £400 in cash from time to time, but the dates were verbally arranged with him, and as security for the £400 I was to have a second mortgage on this property, for which he was giving £2,550—I wanted more security, and so I was to have also a policy for £500 on the life of his father, who was over sixty years old, I believe; and I was also to have as much of his trade as he could give me, and he was to conduct his business under my supervision, and keep whatever books I liked—the £50 I gave him was to go straight to the solicitor of the vendor of the premises, I believe, and I believe it did go to him; I don't know it—I am not prosecuting in this case; the trustee, Mr. Price, is—I am the one man complaining—the £50 was to pay part of the deposit on the purchase of this property—a portion of the money for pay
<lb/>ing the deposit of £255 had been advanced by his solicitors or the vendor's solicitors, and they held the policy on the prisoner's father's life, and it was to be handed over to me—of the £255 deposit the prisoner had paid £75 before the representation to me, and £180 were advanced by the vendor's solicitors—he afterwards paid the £50 from me to go towards the £180—I found the prisoner an exceedingly sharp man of business, not because he got £50 from me; before that—he told me he</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="189106290024"/>
<p>had had an offer of £200 for the premises before these proceedings were instituted—I prepared this agreement without any legal assistance—I sent the cheque for £100 about the 24th or 25th November—Morris and Co. were the vendors solicitors—I was paid the last half-crown of the composition of 17s. 6d. at the end of September or beginning of October, 1889, I think—he asked for extended time, and it was paid then.</p>
