Morning Advertiser (London)
19 December 1888


Mr. J. STUART asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he had received a memorial from "General" Booth, of the Salvation Army, respecting the establishment of cheap shelters for the outcast poor in London, and what reply he had given to that memorial.

Mr. MATTHEWS replied that he had received such a memorial, and he had replied that the Government could not contribute to charitable works conducted by private persons for either buildings or stores.


William Atkins, 21, described as a labourer, and better known as "Silly Billy," was brought up on remand, before Mr. Sheil, on the charge of feloniously wounding Lucretia Pembroke, by cutting her throat with a penknife, under circumstances already reported. -- Detective-sergeant Bradford having informed the magistrate that the girl was still in the hospital, and was not yet able to give evidence, the prisoner was further remanded. -- It was stated that the prosecutrix was in a fair way towards recovery from any injuries which she had received.
