SUPREME COURT-IN BANCO,

(Before His Honor Mr Justice Williams.)

Ward v. The National Bank.— Motion by plaintiff for decree for payment of certain moneys to him under an order of the Court made on September 25, 1888. Sir E. Stout, with him Mr J. Macgrogor, appeared for plaintiff; Mr Haggiit, with him Mr F. R Chapman, for defendants. Tho hearing of this case, which has been before the Court at intervals during the past six or seven years, occupied the whole of to-day’s sitting, and was uot concluded when we went to press.

CITY POLICE COURT. (Belore 15. H. Carcw, 15sq., R.M.) Drunkenness. For this offence Polbj Baker, six previous convictions, pleaded guilty, —Sergeant-major Bovin said that there was a strange circumstance connected with the case. Accused had left her child with a woman on February 21, and they had experienced some difficulty in finding the mother, and at last found her drunk. —Accused was fined 10s, in default forty-eight hours’ imprisonment.— A first offender was convicted and discharged. Larcent.— Hans Olson was charged with stealing, on the Bth inst., four blankets valued at L 3, tho property of the Union Steam Ship Company. Mr A. 0. Hanlon appeared for accused.—Sergeant-major Bevin said that accused was a sailor on ooard the Pleione. At an early hour this morning accused was seen to take something from on board the Grafton, and it was found that a blanket was missing from the steamer. Search was also made on board the Pleione, and thiee other pairs of blankets were found and identified as belonging to the Grafton.—John Tharru, night watchman for the U.S.S. Company, said he saw accused carrying a bundle as he was apparently coming from the Grafton. He was about 100 yds from the Grafton at the time, and witness made inquiries on board the Grafton and Pleione, and then saw accused standing on board his own ship. Afterwards accused came on the wharf, and knocked witness and another watchman down, and the police were then informed of the occurrence. They visited the forecastle of the Pleione, and found a blanket in accused’s bunk. Accused said it was his own blanket, but the brand of the U.S.S. Company was on the edge.—Evidence was also given by William Tucker (forecabin steward of the Grafton), William Lewis (third officer of the Pleione), Joseph Pearson (seaman on board the Grafton), Constables Matheson (who arrested accused) and Stevenson.— Accused was sentenced to three months imprisonment, with hard labor.

At tho first annual meeting of the Auckland West Kindergarten, the balance-sheet showed a sum of Ll4 10s 9d to credit. A woman will often utter a daring opinion, but she recoils terrified if she is taken at her word. A woman not understood is a woman who does not rnderstand.
