POLICE COURT, THURSDAY. JBefore H. HUMPHREYS, Esq. (in the chair), HAROLD A. WILLIAMS, Esq., and S. A. HILEY, Esq. A BOY BURGLAR. George Abraham Williams, aged 13 years. was brought up in custody charged with burglariously breaking and entering the dwelling-house of Miss Hannah Shepard, at Usk, on the 16th August, and stealing therefrom 3s in money. Prosecutrix staled that she lived by herself in Castle Cottage, Usk. On Sunday evening last she went to bed about ten o'clock after seeing that the bouse was properly secured. As soon as she put the light out she heard a noise at the window downstairs, and this made her fidgetty. She did not go to sleep. Subsequently she heard some. thing drop in her bedroom, and thereupon she got a light. It was then nearly eleven o'clock. She got out of bed, just lifted the drapery around the =n7- bedstead, and saw that someone was underneath the bed. Then she said aloud, I think there must be a cat in the house, I must go downstairs and turn it out." She took her dressing gown and went downstairs, and around to Dr Jenkins' house. She found him there, and, having told him that there was a man in her house, she asked him to go there with her and atop there while she went for the police. This he did, and she went down to the police-station. In reply to the Beach, Miss Shepard said she knew the boy very well; he had been to her house frequently. He knew the house, and, presumably the upstairs portion of it. This was the third time she had lost money from there. On Sunday night she had a two-shilling-piece, a shilling, and a crooked sixpence in her purse. It must have been the noise of the falling sixpence that she heard in her room. and made her light her candle. The tixpence was subsequently found on the floor. The other money was taken. Prisoner's father and mother were present in Court, and the former said he wished to ask no questions. Miss Shepard expressed the hope that the boy would be dealt with leniently. Dr Jenkins said he lived next door to Miss Shepard, and about eleven o'clock on Sunday night Misa Shepard came to his house, rang the bdll, and, afterwards told him that there was a man in her house. He went round with her and noticed that the top sash of her dining-room window was down. He could hear some scuffling goingjon upstairs. He stopped there while Miss Shepard went down the street to find a policeman, and went upstairs to Miss Shepard'a bedroom, but could see no one, so he waited on the landing until P.S Sheddick came. Then they together searched the bedrooms without result, but in a clothea closet on the landing they found the prisoner partially covered up, with a clothes bag over him. The Sergeant took charge of him, and he subsequently pointed out what he had used to open the window with. P.S. Sheddick stated that at a minute or two past eleven o'clock on Sunday night he was stand- ing near the Police Station, with P.O. Mitchell, when Miis Shepard came down the street and said there was a man under her bed. Witness sent P.C. Mitchell in for a lamp, and ran on to Castle Oottage. Witness and Dr Jenkins searched the bedrooms without result, but subsequently found prisoner on the top of a box covered over with a bit, in the clothes closet. Witness took him downstairs, and there he found the top half of the window frame pushed down, and a floweriug plant, standing in the window, crushed, but not broken. Witnesi asked Miss Shepard if that was how she left the window when she went to bed and she said I- No." Prisoner first said he opened the window wi'h a stick. but they failed to find a stick. Iuside the house on the floor, however, they found a flat thin piece of steel. Witness found thtt the latch could be pushed bick with this. Witness took Williams to the station and charged him. He said he would never do If. again. Witness found nothing on him then. Witness saw Miss Shepard again ou Tuesday morning, and she said she bad missed 3s from her purse. He returned to the polios and told the lad. He said I don't know anything about it." Afterwards he said he threw the money down behind the box. The clothes closet was searched, but no money could be found. Witness returned and told the boy he had told him a "story." Then he said the money was behind the chest of drawers in the room in which he got it. Another futile search followed, and Williams ultimately handed over the 3s, taking it from his pocket. Prisoner, through his father, elected to be dealt with summarily. It wai stated that on the 7th May ]ast prisoner was discharged as a Fir-it Offeuder in connection with a theft of pigeons, at Usk. P.S. Sheddick, in reply to the Beoch. said he waR afraid prisoner was a bad boy. His father could do nothing with him, and he was occasionally from home at night. The Chairman pointed out to the prisoner that the charge against him was a serious one, which, m an older person, would result in a long term of imprisonment. The Bench, he said, had decided to do what they could to help him to be a good man. The Sergeant would that day take him to Little Mill Reformatory where he would be treated, I as all the boys there were treated-most kindly- and he would be educated, and taught to work. When his time was up they would find him a I situation if he had behaved himself. It was the unanimous opiuion of the Bench that they could do him no greater kindness than send him to the Reformatory for four years. His father would have to pay Is per week towards hia mainten- ance. Mr Harold A. Williams addressed some strong words of criticism to the father, suggesting that words of criticism to the father, suggesting that lack of training for years past, as well as neglect, was responsible for the present criminal tendencies of the youth, and expressing regret that this neglect could not be punished.

What! exclaimed his Honour, and he told witness that unless he withdrew his impertinent remark and apologised he would send him to prison. "All right," said witness.
