A WIFE TAKES NOTES.

HUSBAND SECURES THEM

MAGISTRATE DEMANDS THEIR

PRODUCTION

WELLINGTON.. February 9. A 3-ather extraordinary revelation was made in the Magistrate's Court this afternoon in reference to a case in which H. Martindale was charged with publishing at' Wellington a'document containing a notification on behalf of Scott and Martindale as to betting on horse races to be run at Auckland and Woodvillc during December. Chief Detective Brobefg stated that the. principal witness for the prosecution, 1 a woman from Levin, had reported to him that her. notes bearing on the case had been, -taken from her by her husband. The position was a most .peculiar I one, and rather serious for the police case, as he had good reason to believe that the husband was a hostile witness. At the suggestion of the Chief Detective, the husband was called, and he admitted to the Magistrate without any hesitation that he had taken the notes. ■ ■; '<f'- I "This is' most unusual," said hisl^ Worship. "I can do nothing. I have' no power to make him return the notes. However, it is a matter for himself. He would be well advised to return the notes immediately." Chief Detective Broberg: " Will you warn him that he rruist produce the notes to-morrow; If not he . will' probably destroy them before then." His Worship (to witness): "Remember, you must produce those notes toTtioiTo v when this case comes on for hearing.' i!Do you understand ?" Witness- "I understand what you say." . ■■
