He was employ- ed as household help by the lady from whom, he stoJe the rims which. she vaued at £3. Although the report records that the Aboriginal had no previous con- victions against him and had been employed by the lady for 12 months it does not say whether the lady asked that he »might be dealt with leniently. ' The gambling habit was the. im- pelling force behind the theft and the different aboriginals who came into possession of the ring by gam- bling . shows how strong the habit obviousliy acquired from white breth- ren-has become. This poor native with his child brain, had apparently done useful work and been trusted for at least 12 ,months and has now gone .to prison-for three months'hard labour -for stealing a ring valued at £3. 11s it too much to appeal to em- ployers of natives to give .a little more consi...
