"This man was under the influence of liquor and the offence does not appear to have been premeditated," said Mr. J. Morling, S.M., in the Police Court to-day when he imposed a fine of £5 on Robert Henry SmithCarruthers (46), for stealing 21 handkerchiefs, valued at £1 6/9, from a city store yesterday. Smith-Carruthers, a seaman, for whom Mr. Kalman appeared, pleaded guilty. Senior-Detective Trethewey said accused was seen to take nine handkerchiefs from a counter in a city store and place them under his coat. The police were summoned and De-tective'-Mathieson noticed that on his way to a car, Smith-Carruthers placed his hand in a bag and threw 12 handkerchiefs on to the road. Although under the influence of liquor at the time, it was considered that accused knew what he was doing. It was mentioned by Mr. Kalman that this was the first time SmithCarruthers had ever been in trouble. Yesterday he had been drinking heavily. He had been a member of Dr. MaWson's Antarctic expedition in 1929-30-31 and had also served in the last war.
