Before Recorder Enen, Joseph Slaven was arraigned for picking pockets. Reserve officer Bancker testified that he arrested the prisoner at an auction store, in Chestnut street, below Seventh, on suspicion of picking pockets. He had a pair of stockings, which he said he found on the floor, and some papers, which he said he found at Fifth and Walnut streets. An elderly gentleman, named Myers, testified he was in the auction store, and after he left he missed the papers found on the prisoner. Slaven was committed to answer.
