GARDNER, Charles (22, butcher) , burglary in the dwelling-house of Harry Heap and stealing therein three bunches of keys and two blouses and the sum of 12s. 6d., his goods and moneys; burglary in the dwelling-house of Alec Elder and stealing therein four rings and other articles, his goods; burglary in the dwelling-house of Robert Irvine Gardner and stealing therein one pair of candlesticks and other articles, his goods.

Prisoner pleaded guilty to the indictment relating to Heap and confessed to a previous conviction of felony at the Newington Sessions on September 21, 1909. Seven previous convictions, dating from 1905, were proved; he was released from his last sentence in July, 1910.

He declared that he knew nothing about the proceeds of the other two burglaries. (The indictments as to these are to remain on the file of the Court.)
