Joseph William Daweer was charged at the Police ■Courb thia morning, before Mr H. W. Bishop, R.M., with having obtained £3 from Samuel Vaile by means of a valueless cheque. Mr \V. J. Napier appeared for the defendant, and said that the prosecutor did nob propose to offer any evidence. The defendant was a remittance man, and bad given the cheque to Mr Vaile without altering the name of the bank. Mi , Vaile bad been satisfied with regard to the money. The evidence would have shown there was bo criminal intent. He therefore asked that the caae bo struck out. Inspector Broham said that as far as ho could see it was quite clear that defendant had no account/ at the bank, and yet he used the cheque. Mr Napier said it was the wrong bank, and the defendant having had two or three glasses of liquor omitted to alfcer the cheque. Mr Vaile said he had been guaranteed payment, and he wished to withdraw the charge out of sympathy for the man's wife.

His Worship said either there had been undue haste in bringing the criminal law into operation, or else the matter had been squared. When a man set the law in motion he should give some more substantial reason than the mere fact that he had been reimbursed. He did not consider sympathy for the wife and family should be taken into consideration. People should be more careful how they laid these charges, and then nob proceed simply because they had been equared. Under the present circumstances the case would be struck out.

Mr Goodson opened to-day ex Coptic some choice goods suited for presents. Specimens of them may be seen in the windowe of No. 1 Arcade. They include afternoon tea seta and single cups and saucers in velvefc-lined cases, and other very choice goods.
