Mr. Carter, manager of Heynes, Mathew & Co.'s West-end Pharmacy, Bloemfontein, was an important witness at the Magistrate's Court last week,
when Morris Grushko, a local jeweller, was charged with illicit diamond-buying. The case was remitted to the High Court and the accused liberated on reduced bail. Mr. Carter's evidence was to the effect that the accused consulted him with regard to obtaining acids for testing stones, and spoke quite openly of having had some stones brought to him for testing, which were alleged to have come from a newly discovered mine; and the defence was that the stones were never purchased by the accused, but merely received for testing-purposes. The case was one of "trapping."
