RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT.
This Day. (Before D. S. Durie, Esq., R.M.) UTTERING A FORGED CHEQUE.
Simon Doran and John Driscoll, privates in the 18th. R. 1., were charged by James Neilson, proprietor of the Masonic Hotel, with uttering a forged cheque for £4 8s 4d, purporting to be signed by Stanhope Ross. Vincent Adolphua Pyke, ledger keeper at the Bank of New South Wales, swore to there never having been an account in that name with the Bank.
The prisoners both, acknowledged to having been in the house, but denied all knowledge of the cheque. Driscoll wanted to call a witness to prove such was the case, but for some reason or other was not allowed.
Committed for trial at the next sitting of the Supreme Court at Wellington.
