    John Henry Francis Sanderson, 20, a clerk, was charged at the Central Police Court, before Mr McMahon, SM, yesterday, with embezzling £17-6s-8d, the money of the Bank of Adelaide.

    It was stated in evidence that the young man was employed in the bank as exchange clerk. When Detective Ryan spoke to him about the charge he said, “Yes, that’s right; there were only two occasions, and the whole amount is only £67.”

    David Lewis Fry, accountant, stated that Sanderson had said to him, “I can’t think how lucky the bank was to find me out to-day, as otherwise I would have got away with a pretty big sum.”

    Defendant’s aunt said the boy had no mother, and his father was away in the country. She had reared him. He was a good boy up till a few months ago, when, apparently, he had got into bad company, and he had gone in for horse racing and cards, and began to stay out late at night. He was very sorry for what he had done.

    Defendant was sent to goal for three months.

————————
FALSE PRETENCES.
———◦———

    John Anderson, 35, salesman, appeared before Mr Laidlaw, SM, at the Central Police Court on four charges of false pretences.

    The evidence of Detective Yates was to the effect that defendant admitted writing one order purporting to be from JC Williamson Ltd, and obtaining electrical goods from Warburton, Franki, Ltd. He said there were some other orders which he had “put over” firms in Sydney, including Dunlops, Ltd, Mark Foy’s, and Prouds, Ltd. He obtained goods which he subsequently pawned. Defendant pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment with hard labour.

    The magistrate said he was seriously considering recommending that accused be declared a habitual criminal.
