BELFAST POLICE COURTS.

CUSTODY.

(Before Messrs. Garrett Nagle, R.M.; J.C.C. Payne, J.H. Gault, and William Davison).

"A REGULAR ROWDY."

A young man named Peter M'Ginty was charged by Constable David Henderson with maliciously breaking a plate-glass window in the premises of Henry Lavery, publican, 22 Millfield, and with being drunk and disorderly on Friday evening. Mr. D. F. Spiller prosecuted in this and the other police cases. It appeared that the prisoner entered Mr. Lavery's premises under the influence of drink, and when his order was refused he went outside and threw a brick through the window. Prisoner, it was stated, never worked any. The Resident Magistrate characterised him as a regular rowdy, and sentenced him to three calendar mouth's imprisonment with hard labour.

PAWNBROKER COMPLIMENTS.

Constable Charles Jones charged Patrick M'Laughlin and James Smyth with the larceny of a gold watch, the property of Alex. Smyth, 41 Massereene Street, father of the latter. The prisoners attempted to pawn the timepiece with John Stewart, manager for Mr, Patrick M'Aleese, Albert Street, but in consequence of their unsatisfactory answers he communicated with the police. After further evidence, the prisoner Smyth was sent to jail for three months with hard labour, and M'Laughlin was allowed out under the Probation of Offenders Act. Mr. Stewart was highly complimented by the magistrates on his conduct in the matter.

WHITEHOUSE MAN IN THE DOCK.

John Wilson, 7 Dandy Row, Whitehouse, was charged by Detective-Constable Andrew Dougald with having, on the 10th inst., converted to his own use the sum of 13s 8d, which had been entrusted to him by Owen Smyth, publican, Greencastle, to pay to Messrs. R. & D. M'Allister, wine and spirit merchants, Bank Lane. The evidence of Mr. Smyth was to the effect that the prisoner had been in his employment as a labourer. On the day in question he gave Wilson 13s 8d to go to Messrs. M'Allister's for half a barrel of porter, but the prisoner did not return. Wilson stated that he misappropriated the money while under the influence of drink. The charge having been changed to one of larceny the prisoner pleaded guilty, and was remanded on bail to give him an opportunity of repaying the money.

NURSE'S SUICIDE.

Was to have been Married in June.

(From Our London Correspondent.)

A pathetic story of love and death comes to-day from Bideford, in Devonshire.

Miss Rose Budd, an attractive young nurse, a native of Portsmouth, who, it was understood, was to hare been married to a London doctor in June, was found dead in bed. Before getting into bed she had taken her hair down just as if preparing to sleep. In the bedroom was a bottle of carbolic acid, half-empty. It is understood a letter has been found giving directions for the return of presents and enclosing a sum of money to cover the postage and other expenses. The inquest has been fixed for Tuesday in order that the London doctor may attend.

It seems that the young nurse, who was noted for her beauty, and moved in the best circles, about a year ago became acquainted with a London medical man, and later engaged to him. She wore the engagement ring, and told her friends, that, the marriage was fixed for June. She spent the Easter holidays in London, but made no statement on her return, nor was any change in her manner noticed.

On Saturday morning Miss Budd, it is alleged, purchased a quantity of carbolic acid from a chemist at Bideford, saying it was for disinfecting purposes. She then returned to Chudleigh village for lunch, and seemed in her usual health and spirits. After this meal she went upstairs to her bedroom, and was not seen again during the afternoon. As she did not come down to tea a servant was sent to her room, and it was then the tragedy was discovered.

GENERAL DEALER IN DOCK.

ALLEGED THEFT OF FLOUR.

At the Belfast Custody Court to-day -- before Mr. A. Newton Brady, R.M. -- a general dealer named Alexander M'Kay, carrying on business at 10-12 Huss Street, was charged on remand by Detective-Constable John Twinem with feloniously receiving ten stone of flour, the property of Messrs. Isaac Andrews & Sons, Percy Street, well knowing it to be stolen. Mr. D. F. Spiller prosecuted, and Mr. Nathaniel Tughan defended.

Constable M'Donnell deposed that on the 19th inst. in company with Constable Twinem, he visited the prisoner's premises, and found that the stock was not labelled as required by law. On making an examination of the place he found the bag of flour (produced) concealed below some old clothes lying behind the scullery door. Witness interrogated prisoner, who said, "I got it from Thomas M'Neice, of Derraghy. He often sends me a bag of flour. He is a friend of the wife's." Later he said, "If you watched other people as well for stolen property, it would pay you as well. I don't get all the stolen property. I know where they bring it out in the leg of their trousers, and could bring you to where it is sold." Witness took a sample of the flour and gave it to Mr. Clarke, the manager of the Belfast Flour Mills.

Thomas Clarke said he submitted the floor which the constable gare him to certain tests, as a result of which he was able to say that the floor was the property of Messrs. Andrews & Sons, and was milled between 2.15 on Saturday, 17th inst., and six o'clock on the following Monday morning. The bag of flour produced was the property of Messrs. Isaac Andrew & Sons.

Thomas Armstrong, goods superintendent at Great Northern Railway, was also examined, and accused, who pleaded not guilty, was returned for trial to the Recorder's Court.

AN IRISH SEA DISASTER.

BELFAST SAILOR SAVED.

Of the crew of the schooner New Quay, which it is believed foundered after collision in the Irish Sea, while on a voyage from Maryport to Buncrana, almost three weeks ago, and who were picked up and carried to Nova Scotia, it transpires that the cook, Hugh George Lowry, is a Belfast man, the other man, in addition to Captain Lascelles, and his brother, being a County Down sailor. The New Quay was a wooden schooner of 110 tons gross and 84 tons register, built in 1847 by Cox, of Bideford, and owned by Mr. J. Lascelles, of Ardglass, County Down. The shipwrecked men will in course of time, says the "Liverpool Journal of Commerce," be forwarded in one of the Atlantic liners from Halifax to Liverpool.

=========================

ENGLISH SEEKING WORK IN CHICAGO.

(From Our Correspondent.)

CHICAGO, Monday. -- Fifty English mechanics, unable to obtain employment in England, arrived here today with their families. Leonard S. Reynolds, spokesman for the party said -- "We are all good mechanics, and, as a rule, should get along best in our native land, but there is no work for us to do there, and we have come to America to become citizens. We cannot support families in England, and we think we have in us the ability to do that here."

=========================

EXTRAORDINARY ASSAULT AND ROBBERY CASE.

In Belfast Custody Court, Moses Scott and William Swaine were charged on remand by Constable John M'Grath with assaulting Robert Crawford, and robbing him of a watch and 17s.

Scott handed in a written statement, saying that he alone was guilty, and that Swaine had nothing to do with it.

The evidence, which has already been published, was to the effect that on the evening of the 26th March a number of men entered Crawford's house, 28 Tobergill Street, and beat him while he was in bed, and robbed him. He could not identify the prisoners. The constable said that he believed that Swaine had nothing to do with the robbery.

Scott was sentenced to four months' imprisonment, and Swaine was discharged.

Mr. Brady complimented the constable on the way he had worked up the case.

=========================

It is not the idle hands, but the idle minds, that are in danger.

     All is dark within our dwelling,

MARTIN -- In sad and loving memory of my dearly-beloved mother, Elizabeth Martin, who departed this life on 28th April, 1904, and was interred in Drumaghlis Meeting-house Green, May 2, 1904.
     No one knows how much I miss her,
          Friends may think the wound is healed;
     But they little know the sorrow
          Lies within my heart concealed.
          When our heads are bowed with woe.
          When our bitter tears o'erflow;
          When we mourn the lost, the dear,
          Jesus, Son of David, hear.
M. THIELEN.

     No loved ones stood around him

     No word of comfort could he leave
          To those he left behind.
Inserted by his sorrowing Sister. MRS. J. BOYD. 132 Templemore Avenue, Belfast.
