562. HENRY SULLIVAN (20) , Stealing one box and two keys, the property of Harry Edmund Dolphin.

MR. RIBTON conducted the Prosecution; and MR. F. H. LEWIS the Defence.

WILLIAM FLOWER . I am servant to Mr. Harry Edmund Dolphin, a lieutenant in the Royal Horse Artillery—he has his quarters in the barracks at Woolwich—on the afternoon of 14th June I missed the key of the quarters from the top of the door, and in the evening I missed a cash box—there was nothing in it, I believe—there was also a latch key taken away—the things were shown to me afterwards, and I identified them.

JOSIAH TURNER (Woolwich Policeman 35). I apprehended the prisoner on 22nd June, in Artillery Place, Woolwich—I searched him and found three keys—I found the cash box at his mother's house—he gave me his address at 4, Wentworth Street, Plumstead—I. went there and found the cash box—his name was scratched on the top of it.

Cross-examined. He gave his address without any hesitation.

WILLIAM FLOWER (Re-examined). This is my master's cash box, and the one that was taken away—the name was not on it when I saw it last.

Cross-examined. The key was taken from the top of the door—there are a great number of women about the barracks, passing in and out.

The Prisoner's Statement before the Magistrate: "The keys were given me by a female on Saturday night. I don't wish to say anything about the cash box.
