474. GEORGE WILSON was again indicted with MARY ANN DRAKER (23) , for unlawfully having in their possession counterfeit coin, with intent to utter it.

THOMAS BANNISTER, JAMES DICKENS, MICHAEL BRYANT, and WILLIAM WEBSTER repeated their former evidence.

JESSE PECKHAM (Policeman E 152). I was about 2 yards behind Bryant when he took Draker, and I saw her throw a handkerchief away—I, picked it up and found in a corner of it fifteen half-crowns—she said at the station "How can you say I had it in my possession when I threw it away."

Draker's Defence. A man asked me to drink and sent me into two public-houses to look for a young woman. When the policeman took me he said you are charged with having counterfeit coin in your possession and throwing it away. I said "How can you charge me with throwing it away when I had nothing to throw away?"

GUILTY .

WILSON**— Seven Years' Penal Servitude. DRAKER*— Two Years' Imprisonment.
