"Are the re any witnesses? "asked the magistrate."None,"answered the policeman.Mr Fang then turned to Mr Brown low and angrily told him to describe what had happened.Mr Brown low explained that he had run after the boy only because he saw him running away.He did not think that the boy was the actual thief and he hoped that the boy would not be punished."He"s been hurt already,"he added,"and now I"m afraid he"s very ill. ""I don"t believe that for a moment,"said Mr Fang unpleasantly.He turned to Oliver. "Come now,don"t try any clever tricks with me! What"s your name? "he demanded. Oliver tried to reply,but he was too weak to speak.He was deadly pale,and he felt the room spinning round him.At last he managed to whisper a request for water,but the magistrate refused angrily.Suddenly,Oliver fainted and fell to the floor.
