Theft of Postal Matter.


Wellington, July 10

Hugh George McLiskey, aged 20 years, came to-day before Mr Justice Cooper for sentence, having pleaded guilty of theft of pcatal packets at Ohingaiti. Jounsel asked for probation. His Honour refused this. He said it was impossible to contemplate the result that might arise from acts of dishonest postal officials. It was his well considered opinion that in no case where a post office official was convicted of stealing letters should the provisions of the Probation Act be extended. The prisoner would be sentenced to twelve mouths' hard labour.
