SUCH GEARY (20), GEORGE KLOTZ (22) , Stealing 20l. the moneys of James Walker Moore.
MR. MONTAGUE WILLIAMS conducted the Prosecution.
EMILY MARIA MOORE . I am the daughter of James Walker Moore, who keeps the Lord Derby public-house at Plumstead—on 29th April, between 1 and 2 in the day, I was in a room adjoining the bar—I heard a noise in the bar, and went in; I found Geary there standing opposite the till—he asked me for a pipe—I gave him one—I then looked into the till, and found that it had been emptied—previous to that there had been some silver in it—my mother had been last at the till—I told Geary he had taken the money, and I called my mother—he ran out of the bar into the street, and my mother and I after him, shouting, “Stop thief!”—when he had got a little distance, my mother got hold of him—he dragged her on the ground—my uncle brought Geary back, and another man ran after the other prisoner.

JOSEPH Moss (Policeman, R 151). I was called to take the prisoners into custody—I searched them, and found on Klotz 3s. in silver and 11d. in copper, and on Geary 4s. in silver, and 23/4d. in copper—I told them the charge—Klotz said he was not guilty, the money he had was his own—Geary said he had not done it.

Geary’s Defence. How do you know but somebody else might have been in the shop and taken the money before I entered it?
Klotz’s Defence. I was standing outside the public-house with 5d. worth of coppers in my hand, and this man ran against me. I hurried off to get to London as quick as possible. A gentleman on horseback gallopped after me, and told me to stop, and I did so. I know nothing at all about the case.
GUILTY.— Judgment respited (for inquiry as to character).
