DECLARED HE WAS A SINNER
The strange story of a young man who went to the police and confessed to a robbery after attending religious meetings, at which he declared he was a sinner, was told at the Belfast Custody Court yesterday. The young man, Samuel Irvine, of Argyle Street, stood in the dock with William Newell, both being charged with breaking into the workshops of Messrs. Megarry & Johnston, photographers, of Bridge Street, on May 17, and stealing £10 6s. In his statement to the police Irvine said that he and Newell wanted to be "dressed" for the holidays, but, being out of work and getting no dole, they decided to rob Megarry & Johnston's, where he (the prisoner) was employed eighteen months ago. The Rev. Robert Byers, the minister of the Sandy Row Methodist Church, told the magistrates that Irvine had been attending his meetings, and, declaring himself to be a sinner, decided to confess to the robbery. Remarking that the lad had never been given a chance, the minister said that he was trying to find Irvine a job, so that restitution could be made. "I believe he is going to lead a new life." Mr. Byers added. Newell was discharged on account of insufficient evidence, and the charge against Irvine being reduced to one of simple larceny, he was allowed out on bail on condition that he came before the Court again in three months. time. The R.M. (Mr. O'Donoghue), pointed out that Irvine's conduct in the meantime would determine what course the Bench would take at the end of the probationary period.

ULSTER NEW YORK FIRE
Three weeks ago a motor-car, with headlights full on, was found at Swarkestone Bridge, six miles from Derby. There was nobody in attendance, but on the driver's seat was found a pamphlet opened at a page containing an article entitled "Suicides in everyday life." Recently the body of the owner of the car, Mr. George Harry Pass, of Hillside, Little Eaton, was recovered from the river Derwent, and at an inquest conducted on Friday a verdict of suicide whilst of unsound mind was returned. Witnesses stated that Pass, who was a cripple, had complained of pains in his feet. He had no financial worries, however, being a director of a leading garage in the town of Derby.

HEROIC TRAWLER HAND
Crowds of holiday-makers and
relatives of crews who were waving farewell to Fleetwood trawlers as they
left port for the fishing grounds saw an exciting rescue yesterday.
They were standing on the quayside when one of the new luxury trawlers owned
by Macline Ltd., names Northern Wave, steamed out of dock bound for the
Iceland fishing grounds, As soon as she got into the middle of the
river most of her crew went aft to wave to their wives and sweethearts
ashore, and as they were waving and the trawler was giving answering blasts
on her siren, the crowd were horrified to see one of the crew overbalance
and fall headlong into the sea.

LATE MR. R. S. JEFFERSON
To-day at the Belfast Board of Guardians tribute was paid to the late Mr. R. S. Jefferson. Mr. James Jamison (chairman) said Mr. Jefferson had been with them that day week in perfect health and strength and very happy. That day he had gone from amongst them and they missed him very much. Mr. Jefferson's father had been an old and respected member of that Board. When he died, Mr. Jefferson took his place. Their deceased colleague was a man who had always been doing good by stealth, being of a most charitable disposition. He moved that they send a letter of sympathy to his widow and family. Mr. Small seconded the motion, which was supported by Messrs. Ardis, J.P.; Fulton, Leacock, McGookin, Cochrane, J.P.; Hart, Lowe, Loan and Lyttle, also the clerk, Mr. R. W. Craig, on behalf of himself and the members of his staff, and passed, all standing in token of sorrow.
