ACCUSED MAN'S REPLY TO THE CHARGE. Discharged with a Warning. Remarkable evidence was given at Haw- -arden Petty Sessions 011 Thursday, before 1\11'. T. R. Probert and other magistrates, in a case in which John Granum, alias McCleod, a. native of Stockton-on- Tees, ironworker, was charged with being 011 en- closed premises with intent to commit a felony. Supt. Yarnell Davies said that on Sundav horning, at two o'clock, Miss Williams, Iliece of Dr. Roberts, Carlton House, Ha-w- 4rd-eii, was awakened by hearing footsteps, and being alarmed, she went to the doctor s bedroom, and told him. "While they were Conversing together a cracii was heard. The doctor immediately seized a small gun, and fired it through the window, with the inten- tion of attracting some of the neighbours. .The noise, however, continued and lie saw the man by the gate. He shot again in the ^ireetion of the man, with the intention of rightening him, and the man fell down, and called out "I am shot." Dr. Hughes, a Ileiglibour, came down, and went to the Pol- Ice Station, awakening the sergeant. The -tirgeant arrested the prisoner, and brought hun to the Police Station, and the Bench at the court 011 Monday, remanded Iiim to tlat day. He (the superintendent) had fiJnce spoken to the prisoner, and he had told him he was not injured in any way. Miss Eiinice B. Williams, niece of the °ctor, corroborated. Dr. Roberts said he did not know whe- ther tike man was a harmless individual or a criminal, so he kept him where lie was till the sergeant arrived. He shouted to the IUan, and he said he was James McLeod. next morning, however, he found his lnsuraiiee card. He also found that defen- dant had been round every window trying to get in, some of which were fastened by Wire. "IT IS ONLY THE DRINK." Sergt. Cheney stated he was called about twenty minutes past two by Doctor Hughes. lIe was in bed at the time, and he had turned in at half past one that morning. The doctor was in his pyjamas, with a gun 111 his hand, and the prisoner lying down. The doctor said "There is a man. There is a burglar." He thought the man was shot, ^Ud so he said to him "Are you injured? -Are you shot, or what?" He said "I am all ;right; I don't think I am injured." He .^ook him to the police station and charged lrn at about two o'clock in the afternoon, he was sober. He replied, "I don't •know what I wanted there," and he said, is only the drink; I don't remember ^hything." Prisoner, in a statement to the Bench, he was full of drink. He had travelled rom Stockton-on-Tees, aricl had travelled to Manchester, Liverpool, New Ferry and irkenhead, Connah's Quay, and then he t!IUf!t have gone to Chester. He did not re- IUeinber anything after leaving Chester. Stipe Davies said the story was perfectly trite. He was very respectable, and the pol- lee at Stockton-on-Teee knew him to be a very decent fellow. I The Bench retired, and decided that the charge was not proved against him. They 'did not think it was right that a man should go round those premises. They 'hoped it would be a warning to him, and "that he would not drink again. Prisoner was accordingly discharged.
