Inasmuch as the Regulations made by the Secretary of State in pursuance of Sections 5, 6, and 20 of the Act will not come into effective operation until four weeks after the assembling of Parliament, and by that date the Secretary of State anticipates that there will be Reformatories ready for the reception of inebriates, and duly certificated under the Act. Special attention is drawn to Sections 1 and 2 for the effective carrying out of which, so far as the Police are concerned, Superintendents will be responsible. Whenever a person is conveyed to a Certified Inebriate Reformatory the expense of conveyance will be entered on Pink Form in the usual way and charged in Contingent Account, but will not be entered on F/11/a as the amount must be a charge against the Police Rate in accordance with Section 10. The Home Secretary has arranged that a copy of every license granted by the managers of a Reformatory to an inebriate who is ready for probationary release shall be furnished to the Police Authority of the district in which he is about to reside, so that the local Police may keep a discreet watch on such persons; and an immediate report furnished to the managers of the Reformatory in case of relapse into drunken habits should call for the revocation of the licence, and the Chief Constable directs that, after noting contents of such license the recipient will forward same through Superintendents to the Chief Constable, and Sergeants of Sections will be particular in keeping a discreet watch on such persons should any come to reside in their districts, and if it becomes necessary the report referred to be sent through Superintendents to the Chief Constable for transmission to the Managers In the event of managers of Reformatories enquiring from the Police as to matters connected with administration of the new law touching inebriates, and also as to any property belonging to an inebriate detained in a Reformatory, the Chief Constable directs that the Police will give all information in their power and render the said officials every assistance.

Bearing in mind the very deserving object of the above Fund the Chief Constable believes that the Constabulary would desire to subscribe to the same, and therefore invites individual members to do so, and would suggest that the amount given should be one day's pay for each rank, although any smaller sums would be appreciated, yet the Chief Constable desires to point out to members of the Constabulary that many happy homes have been broken up by the calling out of the Reservists and it will be a great comfort to those of H.M. Forces who are fighting for their honour of their Country in South Africa, to be assured that the wives and children who are dear to them are being well cared for and thought of, and he feels certain, on this account, he is not appealing in vain, to the Cheshire Constabulary. Although the Fund has only been opened since 10th instant, the Chief Constable is pleased to intimate that the amount already subscribed exceeds 1, 600. The amount subscribed by each Division will be forwarded to Head Quarters on 27th instant, together with a list of subscribers and the sums given.

Knutsford No.16 Knutsford General Order No. 358 21st November 1899 Reservists who have Re-joined Regiments Up to the present time five members of the Cheshire Constabulary have been called upon to re-join their respective Regiments for service in South Africa. Two of the number, are married, and one of the two has one child. It has occurred to the Chief Constable that the Constabulary would wish to subscribe a small sum each day so as to provide a fund out of which the wives and child of their two married comrades could be granted a reasonable amount in aid of their support during the absence of their husbands. Subscriptions at the following rates would amount to about 1.5s/- 0 would be proposed per week and the 10s/- be granted to each wife and 3s/- towards the maintenance of the child. Chief Constable. 1s/- per fortnight. Superintendent. 4d. per fortnight. Inspector. 3d. per fortnight. Sergeant. 2d. per fortnight. Constables. 1d. per fortnight. Superintendents will enquire and report on the 27th instant whether the men would be willing to fall in with the above suggestion and if so the amount will be forwarded to the Chief Constable by each Superintendent on the Monday following each pay day, by Postal Order made up by stamps not fixed to the Order. The first remission, to be sent to the Chief Constable, on the, 27th. instant. The Chief Constable thinks this very small subscription named would be sufficient to meet present requirements, but if any other married Constables are called out to re-join their Regiments it might become necessary to invite the Constabulary to double the amounts, which would then be, only one penny per week for Constables. The Chief Constable would under-take to remit the weekly allowances. The subscriptions invited in General Order 353/99 would not in any way clash with the above, as the amount subscribed by the Constabulary on that account would be remitted to the County Subscription towards " Transvaal War" Soldiers and Sailors Relief Fund". General Order No. 359 21st November 1899 Mutual Benefit Association Reservists called out to re-join Regiments The Chief Constable considers that members of the above Association who have been called out to re-join their respective Regiments for service in South Africa, should, until their return, remain in full benefit of the rules of the Association and this without any expense to themselves or families. The Chief Constable will be glad to know whether the members are agreeable to the above suggestion, and Superintendents will enquire and report accordingly on 27th instant. If members approve the Reservists would be called upon to pay in respect to deaths occurring during their service with the colours.

These two men are notorious cattle stealers, and the offences for which they were last convicted took place in the Nantwich Division on 4th July 1893 when ten cattle were stolen from a field during the night, and were driven to a Railway Station miles away (where a cattle truck had been previously ordered.) and trucked to Oswestry where they were sold in the market the following day for 97. 0. 0. Both men were sentenced to seven years at Chester Castle Quarter Sessions on 19th October 1893. Roberts was discharged from Prison on 23rd December 1899, and has returned to Whitchurch, White will, no doubt will be discharged very soon. The Chief Constable directs that all ranks will be furnished with a description of Roberts and White and will also be shown their photographs. A sharp look out will be kept for either or both of these men, as it is more than probable they will again commit similar depredations. Farmers and Owners of Stock will be informed of the descriptions of these thieves, and of the fact that one is already at large and they will be requested to immediately inform the nearest Constable should either of them be seen about. Robert's description on liberation will be found in the list of Persons discharged from prison during the week commencing 20th December 1899. The Office Number 3763- 99.
