t Man Terrified of Woman! ( COUNTRY SQUABBLE AT G YFFYLLIOG. HUSBAND'S POLITENESS. At the Ruthin Police Court on Monday a tall. athletic looking woman named Mary Jones, of Gland wr-terrace, Gyffylliog, was summoned for assault upon Margaret Jones, Minfforddj Gyffylliog, on the 8th Gctober. I Mr Aneurin 0 Evans appeared for the complainant, and Mr Joseph Lloyd, Rhyl, for the defendant. Mr Evans said she was the wife of Edward Jones, stonemason. The de- fendant was a most powerful woman, and was a little older than the complainant, I who was 28 years of age. For some reason not understood defendant for some time had been offensive towards the com- plainant, and on the day in question the children of both parties had been playing together in a cart. Whether the vehicle was dirty or not could not be said, but the defendant complained that dirt had been thrown on her children by those of the complainant, who remarked that she could not always be with them looking after them. In the village near the defendant's honse is a well from which the inhabitants draw water, and on the date in question the complainant was followed to the well, where she was going to draw water, by the defendant who was in a very excited con- dition. She took hold of the complainant by the neck with both hands, and it was the defendant's husband who got her away, telling her not to be such a fool to get in such a temper, &e. Complainant was really afraid of deftn (ant. She now sought the protection or the court against a repitition of such an offence, because the well from which complainant had to obtain water was near the defendant s house. Margaret Jones, the complainant, gave evidence in support of her advocate's state- ment.. Defend mt throttled her. and hurt her very much. She also got wet. Robert Jones. a resident in the village, and a tall man, next appeared to give evi- dence, and in answer to Mr Aneurin Evans he admitted that although he was a mod- erately well-built chap he was rather terrified to come to court to give evidence. (laughter). As a matter of fact you had to be subpoenaed to come here ?âYes, or I would not have come. Continuing, he said he had heard a noise on the day in question, and had looked over the wall to find out the cause but he did not see either of the women doing anything. Witness admitted hav- ing given evidence to advocate's clerk. Mr Joseph Lloyd here objected to Mr Evans' mode of procedure he was really cross-examining his own witness. Mr Aneurin Evans I shall ask the Bench to allow one to cross-examine him. He has told us that he is rather terrified to come here and give evidence. He tells the truth to my clerk and when he comes to court, be wishes to withdraw from that story, because he is terrified. The man in the meantime has been got at by the defendant. Mr Lloyd That is a most scandalous statement to make and a gentleman of the profession should not make it unless he has some ground for it. The matter then dropped, and the services of the witness dispensed with. Mary Lloyd, mother of the complainant, said she heard her daughter screaming, and she saw Mary Jones being pushed away by her husband. She saw the defendant run and take hold of the com- plainant in the back somewhere. Mary Jones' husband told his wife not to be a fool! (lautzliter). Mr Lloyd I am afraid husbands are not so polite to their wivies as they are to a third party (laughter). This had been a mere country squabble, and nothing more. Mr Lloyd, for the defence, remarked that the little children apparently had a little quarrel, and then the mothers took it up. As a matter of fact, the complainant had gone on to the defendant's doorstep, caught hold of each side of her skirt and danced a jig (laughter) at the same time calling the defendant names. The com- plainant bad a can of water, which she deliberately tried to throw over the defendant. It was then that the defendant put her hand. It was a foolish quarrel, and the case ought never to have been Brought into court. Mary Jones, the defendant, corroborated the facts related by her advocate. She had not followed the complainant to the well, but stood on her doorstep, and when complainant returned she threatened to throw the water over defendant. To protect herself, she raised her hand, but did not get hold of the complainant anywhere. Mrs Lizzie Roberts, a neighbour, gave evidence for the defence. Mr Lloyd I think you bad occasion one time to get Mr Aneurin Evans to I write a letter to the complainant ? Witness Yes, to Margaret Jones, her mother, and her husband (loud laughter). They are a rowdy lot, are they not ?â Yes, sir fearfully (laughter). After retiring for a short while the Chairman said the bench had decided to dismiss the case.
