Aq Yrjysangharad ROW. A MIXED-UP AFFAIR. Henry Williams, blacksmith, Pontypridd,* was summoned on Wednesday at the Pontyfc pridd Police Court by Morgan Jones, an agen with the Prudential Assurance Co., for assault- ing him on the 7th inst. Williams' wife had also summoned Jones for assault. Mr James Phillips, solicitor, Pontypridd, prosecuted on behalf of Jones. Complainant stated that he had been in the King's Head Inn, and left there between nine and ten o'clock. He had just reached Peasley's when a woman rushed out into the road, and Williams also came cn and had him on the ground. The walking stick he had in his hand was taken away from him by Williams, who struck him on the head with it, and also under the eye, inflicting a large wound there. He heard David Griffiths telling Williams to leave him (witness) alone, and Griffiths shouted out murder." p C.Is Church and Daniel Jones came on, and witness gave Williams in charge. The policemen asked him to go to the police station with them and this he did. Dr Winter (assistant to Dr Hunter) was there, and be stitched his face for him. When charged, Williams said he had nothing to say. Defendant: I thrashed him because he thrashed my wife. I broke the stick as soon as I took it from him. I did not strike him with the stick I thrashed him with my hands. David Griffiths said he was in the bar of the King's Head, and had a conversation with the defendant. They were speaking rather loudly when witness's brother came in and asked what was the matter. Williams replied What's the odds to you," and both men then indulged in blows, and Williams was put out of the Inn. Morgan Jones was in another room. Witness and Morgan Jones went home together about three quarters of an hour after, and his brother followed about 30 yards behind. When they came to a dark corner, the defendant and his wife rushed at Jones, who fell to the ground. Jones did not do anything to them. The complainant had a stick which Williams took from him, and used it freely upon his head and face, and he also struck witness upon the fore- head. Witness went up the road and shouted "murder." P.C. Church came up, and Williams was given in charge. Defendant: He nearly strangled me on the grouna. Evan Griffiths, brother of the last witness, said that some blows had passed between him and Williams in the public house, and shortly after leaving the premises he heard someone shouting murder, and saw Morgan Jones on the ground and Williams and his wife beating him. He did not see anything in his hand. Two men caught hold of him also, but he recognised one of them and said so, and he was then left alone. Mrs Williams said she had gone to meet her husband coming home and on going "p the road, her husband complained about the men having beaten him When Morgan Jones came up he beat her with a stick on the arm. She took the stick from him and threw it into the canal. They all had sticks with them. She saw b,, r husband on the floor being attacked by the men. S Ie had never seen Morgan Jones before and her arm was badly fcnised. She had been ill and even then she was attended by a doctor. Dr Jones saw her arm the following day and told her it could very well have been i'lukcn. 'Her husband complained to her that he was: nearly strangled in the King's Head. The case was adjourned for a \ve< k the attendance of P.O. Church and Dc Jones witnesses.
