Moustache; Dark Complexion; Dark Face: Pale Build: Medium Appearance: Jewish Dress: Black Felt hat; Dark suit and dark overcoat and up stand up collar and black tie. 26 to 30 year.

In each case entrance was affected by forcing the front door of the front door with a jemmy. The above described men generally select houses with vestibules or porches at the entrance, to ascertain if the occupier is at home, they knock at the door, and if answered, ask for apartments. Up to the present the two men have not obtained much booty, consequently they will likely endeavour to commit further robberies of the dame description and the Chief Constable calls upon all ranks to pay special attention to this matte and be vigilant in looking out for the men described who are evidently working the County of Chester.

No 109 Sergeant Maddocks Macclesfield Division PC A2 J. Beech Middlewich Division General Order No. 150 30th May 1901 Jubilee Convalescent Fund The Chief Constable directs that when Constables apply to him to be refunded the amount of Railway Fare both, in going to and returning from the Convalescent Home, the counterfoil of the Railway Warrant used for each journey must be attached to the Application. Should application be made for any other expenses (the weekly charge, excepted) receipted bills will be attached. General Order No. 151 30th May 1901 Northern Police Orphanage and Convalescence Home The Chief Constable is pleased to permit members of the Constabulary to leave the circulars sent herewith at the residences of ladies and gentlemen within the County, and to respectfully call there again in due course with the object of receiving such donations or subscriptions as may be given, and, amounts so received will be handed to Superintendents, who will weekly forward same to the Chief Constable for transmission to the Secretary. All ranks should feel it a pleasure to take every reasonable opportunity of making known to such respectable persons who are likely to be desirous of aiding the funds the very great advantages that the Police and the Children of deceased comrades have already received, and continue to receive, by the existence of such an institution as this, and the urgent there now is for funds to erect a new Convalescent Home, owing to the fact that all the accommodation at the existing Orphanage and Home is required for the constantly increasing number of children. It will be distinctly understood that this appeal will be made only to such as there is reason to believe fully and recognise the value of Policemen, and appreciate their work, and who would in consequence gladly give a donation or subscription to this very worthy object, which so much concerns members of the Police Forces generally, and also the young children of those who are no more. As this is well known to all ranks, many members of the Constabulary have, after periods of serious illness, been sent for a sojourn at the Convalescence Home, and the Chief Constable has much pleasure in intimating that all have returned to duty greatly benefitted, and have reported that the kindness, attention and comfort etc. which they had received whilst at the Home was far beyond anything expected, and praised most highly the arrangements, some in fact suggesting that if the Constabulary recognises to the full great advantages to be obtained there to those broken in health, an Annual Subscription from the Cheshire Constabulary of a much higher amount than is now given would be the result. Four Children of late members of the Constabulary have been received into the Orphanage. Any member of the Force receiving sums of money on this Account will forthwith hand the same to the Inspector or Sergeant of the Section, who will at once enter the particulars in a Statement which must be kept at each Sectional Station. The form of the Statement will be as shown below, and a few sheets neatly choreographed will be furnished by Superintendents to each Section.

Northern Police Orphanage and Convalescence Home THE CHIEF CONSTABLE OF CHESHIRE IS permitting members of the CHESHIRE CONSTABULARY to leave the attached Circular at the residences of Ladies and Gentlemen within the County, would beg to draw attention to the great advantages of such an Institution as the above to the Police generally, who liberally subscribed to the Funds, at the time of the establishment of the "Orphanage etc. in 1898 and who now subscribe annually towards its maintenance etc. As will be seen from the Circular the building was, in the first instance, divided into two parts, one being devoted to the Orphanage, and the other to the Convalescent Home, but owing to greater accommodation being required for the constantly increasing number of fatherless children of deceased Policemen (including 4 from Cheshire) received into the 3rd Orphanage, it is has been found necessary to erect a new Convalescent Home, and it is to this object that funds are now earnestly sought for. Many members of the Cheshire Constabulary have been sent for a short sojourn at the "Home" after illness, and all have returned to duty greatly benefitted. Members of the Constabulary will gratefully receive donations or subscriptions and transmit same to the Chief Constable who will if more convenient be glad to receive amounts direct, and give any further information that may be desired.

The Chief Constable has purposely refrained from mentioning any sum which individual members might give, as he is wishful to leave the matter in the hands of the men themselves so that each man many give just what he pleases.

Form M/25, made adapted: 24th March 23rd June 23rd September 24th December Superintendents will continue forwarding to Head Quarters Div. Form M/25 General Order No. 357 20th December 1901 Acts of Parliament Copies of the following Acts of Parliament passed during the last Session have been forwarded to Divisions, and the Chief Constable directs that the same will be carefully perused by Superintendents who will be held responsible for the contents and requirements being explained to all members of their respective Divisions. Larceny Act 1901 Section 1 (1) Whosoever (a) being entrusted, either solely or jointly with any other person, with any property in order that he may retain it safe custody, or apply, pay, or deliver, for any purpose or to any person the property or any part thereof, or any proceeds thereof or (b) having either solely or jointly with any other person, received any property for or on account of any other person fraudulently converts to his own use or benefit of any other person the property or any part thereof, or any proceeds thereof, shall be guilty of a misdemeanour and be liable on conviction to penal servitude for a term not exceeding seven years, or to imprisonment, with or without hard labour for a term not exceeding two years (2) Nothing in this Section shall apply to or effect any trustee or any express trust created by a deed or will, or any mortgage of any property, or personal, in respect of any act done by the trustee or mortgage in relation to the property comprised in or affected by any such trust or mortgage. Section 2 (1) Sections seventy five and seventy six of the Larceny Act 1861 are hereby repealed. (2) This Act shall effect as part of the Larceny Act 1861 and Section 1 of this Act shall be deemed to be substituted for Sections seventy five and seventy six of that Act, and references in any enactment to those Sections shall be construed as references to Section one of this Act. (3) This Act shall come into operation on the first day of January nineteen hundred and two. (4) This Act may be cited as the Larceny Act 1901, and the Larceny Act 1961, the Larceny Act 1868, and this Act may be cited together as the Larceny Acts 1861 to 1901. Intoxicating Liquors (Sale to Children Act 1901 Section 1 The Intoxicating Liquors (Sale to Children) Act 1886 is hereby repealed. Section 2 Every holder of a License who knowingly sells or delivers, or allows any person to sell or deliver save at the residence or working place of the purchaser, any description of intoxicating liquor to any person under the age of fourteen years for consumption by any person on or off the premises, excepting such intoxicating liquor as are sold or delivered in corked and sealed vessels in quantities not less than one reputed pint for consumption off the premises only, shall be liable to a penalty not exceeding forty shillings for the first offence, and not exceeding five pounds for any subsequent offence: and every person who knowing sends any person under the age of fourteen years to any place where intoxicating liquors are sold or delivered, or distributed, for the purpose of obtaining any description of intoxicating liquor, excepting as aforesaid for consumption by any person on or off the premises shall be liable to like penalties. Section 3 Nothing in this Act shall prevent the employment by a licensed person of a member of his family or his servant, or apprentice as a messenger to deliver intoxicating liquors. Section 4 For the purpose of all legal proceeding under this Act, this Act shall be construed, in England as one with the Licensing Acts 1872 - 1874. Section 5 The term "corked" means closed with a plug, or stopper, whether it is made of cork, or wood, or glass, or some other material. The expression "sealed" means secured with any substance without the destruction of which the cork, plug, or stopper cannot be withdrawn. Section 6 This Act may be cited for all purposes as the Intoxicating Liquors (Sale to Children) Act 1901. Section 7 This Act shall come into operation on the first day of January nineteen hundred and two. Notwithstanding the provisions of the new Act it will be understood by all ranks that the Resolution of the Standing Joint Committee of this County, passed on 1st May 1897, deprecating the sale or delivery of intoxicating liquors to children apparently under the age of 13 years and the offering of inducements to such children to frequent public houses by the giving of sweets, toys, etc. remains operative until further notice, and the Chief Constable directs that the Police will continue to act in accordance therewith and carry out instructions contained in the General Orders issued on the subject. Youthful Offenders Act 1901 The following are the important Sections in the above Act of Parliament. Section 2 (1) Where a child or young person is charged with any offence for the commission of which a fine, damages, or costs may be imposed upon him by a Court of Summary Jurisdiction and there is reason to believe that his parents or guardian has conducted to the commission of the alleged offence, by wilful default or habitual neglecting to exercise due care of him, the Court may, on information, issue a summons against the parent or guardian of the child or young person charging him with so contributing to the commission of the offence. (2) A summons to the child or young person may include a summons to the parents or guardian. (3) The charge against the child or young person and the charge against the parent or guardian may be heard together, and for that purpose the proceedings against the child or young person may be adjourned. (4) When, after hearing the case, any fine, damages or costs are imposed upon the child or young person, and the Court is satisfied that the parent or guardian has conducted to the commission of the offence by wilful default, or by habitually neglecting to exercise due care of him, the Court may order that the fine, damages or costs shall be paid by the parent or guardian, instead of by the child or guardian to give security for the good behaviour of the child or young person. (5) Any sums so imposed and ordered to be paid may be recovered from the parent or guardian by distress or imprisonment in manner provided by Section twenty one of the Summary Jurisdiction Act 1879. (6) A parent or guardian may appeal against an order made under this Section to a Court of Quarter Sessions. (7) Where a parent or guardian is ordered to pay fine, damages or costs or to give security for the good behaviour of the child or young person no further charge under this Act shall be brought against the parent or guardian in respect of any, wilful default or habitual neglect to exercise due care of such child, or young person without prejudice to the liability of the parent or guardian for any subsequent wilful default or habitual neglect in respect of the same child or young person. Section 4 (1) A Court of Summary Jurisdiction on remanding or committing for trial any child or young person, may instead of committing him to prison, remand or commit him into custody of any fit person named in the commitment, who is willing to receive him (due regard being had, where practicable, to the religious persuasion of the child) to be detained in that custody for the period for which he has been remanded, or until he is thence delivered by due course of law and the person so named shall detain the child or young person accordingly, and if the child or young person escapes he May be apprehended without warrant, and brought back to the custody in which he was placed. (2) The Court may also exercise the like powers pending any enquiry concerning a child under Section nineteen of the Industrial School Act 1866. (5) Where a Court makes an order under this Section the Court may make an order on the parent or other persons legally liable to maintain the child or young person, requiring that parent or person to pay, as a contribution towards the cost of maintaining the child or young person, such sum not exceeding five shillings a week, as the Court may think fit, during the whole or any part of the time of his custody. The payment shall be made to the Inspector of Reformatory and Industrial Schools, or to a Constable or other person authorised by the Inspector to receive the payment; and the money shall be applied under the direction of the Treasury towards the expenses incurred under the Section. Section 18 This Act may be cited as the Youthful Offenders Act 1901, and shall come into operation on the first day of January nineteen hundred and two. Special attention is drawn to Section 2 which enables the Police to lay information against the parent or guardian of any child or young person, where there are good grounds for believing such parents or guardian has conducted to the commission of the alleged offence by wilful default or by habitual negligence to exercise due care of the child or young person. Special attention is also drawn to Section 4 which empowers Court of Summary Jurisdiction to remand or commit children into custody of fit persons willing to receive them (with due regard being had where practicable to the religious persuasion of the child) until they are thence delivered by due course of law, and the Chief Constable directs that the greatest discrimination should be made as the Police are concerned in the selection of such suitable persons, as he feels that if unsuitable persons are chosen, children who for bad conduct are about to be sent to a Reformatory or Industrial School, will probably run away and escape what appears to them a very considerable punishment, thus assisting in another direction to swell the ranks of the criminal classes, which would defeat one of the objects of the new Act of Parliament. General Order No. 358 23rd December 1901 Alderley Edge Police Station The above named Police Station will be taken over by the Police on 28th December 1901, from which date No. 128 Sergeant Peter Leigh will take charge of and occupy the same.
