EMBEZZLEMENT BY A POSTAL OFFICER.
At this morning’s sitting of the City Police Court, before Messrs W. Ruther* ford and J. H. iScoullar, J.P.s,, Thomas Easton Waugh, formerly clerk iu the Dunedin Post Office, was charged with embezzling, on July 21, 1888, the sum of 1.54, the property of Her Majesty the Queen. There was another charge, in which be was accused of embezzling L2O l?a 8d from tho same department. Chief-detective Henderson appeared to prosecute, while accused was defended by Sir Robert Stout, whose client pleaded not guilty. Counsel for accused said he believed the police intended asking for a remand, and to that he would offer no objection. He would, however, ask that the Bench allow accused out on bail, and fix sureties. Chief-detective Henderson replied that such was the case. Tho police would ask for a remand, because the case against accused had not been worked up yet. Would their Worships grant a remand until Tuesday ? The Bench said they would remand the ease, as requested, and allow accused out on bail, as asked by Sir Robert Stout. Accused would, however, have to find bail to the extent of LSO, with two sureties of L 23 each. That would apply only to one sharge, so that accused’s total bail would be LIOO, with four sureties of L 25 each.
