OLD OFFENDERS. - Geo. Emerson and Isaac Emerson, two old offenders, were charged in their absence with using a gun for the purpose of taking game without a licence, at Rougham, on Friday, October 14. - James Alderton, labourer, Rushbrooke, deposed that on Friday, the 14th, he was in a field in Rougham, in the occupation of Mr. G. H. Nunn, when he heard a gun fired. He ran down to the place whence sound proceeded, and saw George Emerson pick up a hare. Isaac Emerson was in a field near by with a gun. Witness asked George Emerson for the hare, and he said, "Take it, but do not say anything about it." He then beckoned to Isaac to come up, but they both ran away, and left the hare behind. Witness knew the men well, but was unacquainted with their names. He had since that identified them in company with a police constable. George Emerson had been convicted several times previously, and was at the present time under recognisances. - Neither of the defendants appeared, and George Emerson was fined £2, and 5s. costs, or four months' imprisonment, and Isaac Emerson 15s., and 5s. costs, in default 14 days.
