Liverpool Mercury May 3rd, 1877

A mysterious pauper at Warrington

At the Warrington board of guardians yesterday the case of Moses WOODS, a pauper, who has lain in bed for 4yrs, was again brought up before the board. There are 17 removable cases in the house and the guardians were endeavouring to reduce the number. Amongst these is the case of Moses WOOD, a man who went to the house four years ago, and although suffering from no disease or complaint, apparently, he has spent the whole of his time in bed. A short time ago, as it was believed the man was shamming, his wine was stopped, which caused him to be very violent. Although he pretended to be unable to get out of bed, he was seen to get up by the nurse and look in the glass, and observe he was getting thinner through the loss of his wine. He still, however, persistently refuses to get up, although every inducement is made for him to do so, if only for a short time, and through being constantly in bed he is reduced to a mere skeleton. The guardians had the impression that he was "wanted" for some crime, but this he denies and says before he dies "Moses will make a revelation" He has proved an expensive pauper, having cost the union between 200 and 300, and, as he only came to the town on tramp, the man is really not chargeable. No information can be obtained as to his birth beyond the fact that he was born at Warwick while his parents were travelling, and the guardians still have to maintain him.

Municipal elections at St Helens

A vacancy having occurred in the representation of Windle ward in the St Helens town council owing to the death of William BARTON, the town clerk last week issued the necessary notices for filling the vacancy. Only nine nominations had been sent in, and as they were all in favour of Mr Robert BELSHER, builder and contactor, Windle St, he was duly elected.
