Pickpockets had a field day yesterday.

Sabina Park, jam-packed for the opening of the Inter-colonial football series provided a hunting ground for the nimble-fingered men.

Among losses reported to police were:

John MacAdam of Christians—loss of wallet containing £49 and valuable papers. Henry Grant, 43½ Mark Lane—loss of Elgin watch valued at £10. Rev. W. H. Smith of Montego Bay—loss of eye glasses valued at 13 guineas.
