    • Sheather Pleads Guilty

      George Sheather, charged with stealing two cheques and ?68 in money at Nangus last April.

      Mr. Fraser for accused.

      Plea, guilty.

      John Ernest Fuller and George Gittoes each gave accused a good character. The latter knew him 45 years, and never knew him to do a wrong action before. All the family were good. He reared a big family, and reared them well.

      The police had nothing against accused. He bore a good character.

      Mr. Fraser: A man named Gibbon, a market-gardener, kept his money in a quart pot, on the top of the ground, under some flowers, in view of the main Sydney to Melbourne road. Sheather had seen him frequently going to the spot. Sheather admitted his guilt, and gave notice that he would plead guilty. I gave my cheque for the amount. Accused is 65. He has a wife and has reared a large, respectable family in the district. A testimonial to his good charactcr was put in by Mr. James Robinson, of 'Kimo' the most respected gentleman in the Southern districts, who would not give a man a testimonial unless he deserved it. He gave it without hesitation. I ask you to bind accused over to appear for sentence if called upon.

      His Honor: What appeals to me is that he has brought up a large family. An old man should not fall to temptation, but money should not be let lie about in that foolish fashion.

      Sentenced to 9 months, and released under the F.O.A.,

      ?23 was found on accused when ar rested, and was ordered to be re turned, to him, less ?5 costs for a witness.
