THE FIRST CHARGE. Mr J. T. Roberts said tihat there were four separate charges against the accused. He would first procood with a charge of forging a request for the delivery of goods, which pur- ported to have been written and signed by Mrs Ellen Rowlands, Clwtymel, Ebenezer, and ad- dress.ed to Messrs Pierce and Williams, drapers, 'Carnarvon, or to be more correct, to Mr Williams and Mr Pierce, of Carnarvon. David Pierce, proprietor of the Golden Goat, and carrying on business as Messrs Pierce and Williams, said *t)hiat on Friday, the 23rd November, the accused, wearing glasses, came to the shop and handed him; 'a. note (pro- duced), which was in an envelope. He knew the person from whom tlàe note purported to come. She was a customer of his, and was a person to whom he would supply goods on ap- proval. The I.eff.er contained list of goods required by Mrs Ellen Rowlands. Witness, satisfied as to where 'the note came from, gave it to one of the young ladies serving in the shop. The goods were supplied to the ac- cused. Tlwy would not have been supplied if he had reason to believe that the note was not a genuine one from Mrs Rowlands. Mary Elizabeth Roberts^ an assistant at Messrs Pierce and Williams, said that on Fri- day, the 23rd November, she was serving in the shop between 12 and 1 o'alock. She saw the defendant, who wore glasses, handing Mr Pierce a note, which was given to her, and she executed tho order. The- witness was asked to examine a quantity of goods, and to state which were supplied by her. Mr R. Roberts The accused is charged with forging a certain document. Only sim- ple evidence is required to prove that. You have the document before you, and 'all that is necessary is to call a person to prove whether it is forged or not. The Magistrates' Clerk said that it was ne- cessary that the whole transaction should be explained to the court. Mr R. Roberts remarked that all the prose- cution had to do was to prove that the request was a forgery. He asked the Benoh to take note of his objection. The witness examined the goods, and identi- fied them as tCnose supplied to the- accused. Ellen Rowlands, Clwtymel, Ebenezer, said that the accused was her (grandson. Witness was a customer at the Golden Goat, and the ac- cused knew this. However, he had never been tibere on her behalf. Síhe did not write the letter (produced), nor did she authorise anyone to write it on her behalf. Neither did she authorise anyone to sign such a document on her belhalf. P.S. Jones, stationed at Llanberis, said that on the 24th November he arrested the accused at the Snowdon Va'lley Hotel, Llanberis. He oharged him witih larceny. Mr J. T. Roberts I am calling the officer to prove what the accused was wearing. Further questioned, the officer said that the accused wore the clothing described, with the exception of the corset (laughter). The Chairman Were you sent to arrest a man ? Mr J. T. Roberts He thought that he was arresting a woman (laughter). (To the wit- ness) 'He was masquerading' as a woman? The Witness: Y".
