On Wednesday, at the Pontypridd Police Courtâbefore the Stipendiary and other magis- tratesâJames Carroll, boiler-maker, Cardiff, was summoned for furiously driving a horse and trap at Hawthorn on Sunday evening. Thomas Scale, landlord of the Duffryn Arms, Rhydyfelen, said that on the day in question he saw the defendant driving a horse and trap through Rhydyfelen at a rate of 15 or 16 milea an hour. The horse was going "full gallop," and the defendant was forcing it as much as hct could. Dr T. R. Hamlen-William, J.P., stated that when he saw the horse passing Fairfield he thought it was a runaway. The driver was in- toxicated, ami he was urging, on the animal which was then going about 16 or 18 miles an hour. Just at this point the defendant had a collision, and witness then sent for a policeman. This was not an isolated oa.se- The Stipendiary: Oh! we won't go into that now. Continuing, witness said the horse had been in his stable until Tuesday night, and was unable to move after its exertions.
