Christchu&ch, June 25: '
• David, Hastings Brown' was to-day charged, on the information of James Embling, Manager of the Bank of New Zealand, with embezzling £124 6s, the ; moneys of the Bank. ; iThe alleged embezzlement was stated to have taken place in January last.
Mr Fisher appeared for the Bank, and Mr Stringer for the accused. Mr Fisher said he was not prepared to go on, as the evidence would take some time to work up, arid asked for a remand for eight days.
Mr Stringer did not object, and a remand was granted till July 3rd. Bail was allowed, accused in £500, and two sureties of £250 each.
The Timaru correspondent of the "Lyttelton Times" writes:—"A profound sensation of regret was caused when it became known that Mr Brown, one of the proprietors of the Belford Mill, was arrested for embezzlement, as Mr Brown, during the short time he has resided here, has made many friends by his kind and courteous and straightforward manner, and has always shown himself open to do kind and generous actions when he was convinced that they would do good. It is confidently thought that the whole unfortunate affair will be cleared up iv due course in a satisfactory manner."
