RECOVERY OF STOLEN GOODS

An action of an unusual character was heard at Auckland yesterday. It was brought by E. A. Asher against H. G. E. Meyer, and was a claim for LOO 10s Bd, for damages in respect to the alleged wrongful conversion by the defendant to his own use of certain property belonging to plaintiff. In November last year a pawnshop kept by plaintiff near the City Market was broken into and a quantity of goods Btolen. Four persons—Campbell, Moss, Meyers (the present defendant), and a lad named Knasch—were arrested on the charge, and committed for trial at the Supreme Court, when they pleaded guilty, and were sentenced to various terms of imprisonment. Meyers, having completed his sentence, was now sued by Asher for value of that part of the property which had not been recovered. Dr Giles, R.M., said there was nothiug more in the evidence before him than a strong presumption that defendant took the goods, and he nonsuited the plaintiff, with costs (L 3 3s).
