WELLINGTON, February -_>5

. A heavy criminal record stood against Arthur Douglas, who came up for sentence before the Chief Justice and j>lr Justice Hosking to-day. The prison 2r was charged with 40 offences, including 23 charges of breaking and entering and theft at Wellington, 13 similar charges at Auckland and two at Whan-, garei and two charges of theft from a dwelling. Douglas stated that when he came to the Dominion he had money, and since his arrest a draft of £200 sent to him had gone astray.. The Chief Justice remarked that prisoner seemed to have done nothing else, but burgle premises since his the country. The fact that he had had money and squandered it in gambling only made his conduct worse. _ It was terrible to see a young man who had been through the war and came of a very repectable family in such a position.

Efe was sentenced to 18 months' imprisonment and declared a habitual criminal.

On a charge of theft of a motor cycle, Leonard James Ruston was sentenced to nine month's' imprisonment.^
