James Palmer, who pleaded guilty to breaking and entering the Waipawa railway station, was sentenced to twelve months’ imprisonment. Percy Watterson pleaded guilty to maliciously injuring a portable engine at Mangatera. He had a share in the engine with the prosecutor (Brighthouse) and thought the latter had swindled him out of his share, whereupon he did the damage. He was released on his recognisances to come up for sentence when called upon. WELLINGTON. F. H.
