E II Y L. PETTY SESSIONS Tuesday, before Messrs William Wynne, William Williams, W. J. P. Storey and Cap- tain Keatinge. FROM GIGGLES TO BLOWS. A CHARGE OF ASSAULT AND BATTERY. Joseph Pickering, Vale Road, was charged by James William Thomas, High Street, Rhyl, with assaulting and beating him, on the 16th inst. Mr. F. J. Gamlin appeared for the complain- ant and Mr. Jones Rudland defended. From the statement of Mr. Gamlin support ted by the complainant and P. S. McWalters,. it would appear that Thomas was walking with some young ladies up High Street, on the night in question when they were met by defen- dant and his wife. The girls were laughing at something, and upon that Mrs Pickering went up to Thomas and asked him what the girls were laughing at her. He replied that he knew nothing about them, and told her to ask them. Upon that Pickering said that would not do for him, and struck the complainant on the chest and on the cheek, and afterwards, in the presence of the police sergeant, took hold of him by the throat and tried to strike him. For the defence, the assault was denied in toto, and Mr. Jones Rudland stated the defen- dant and his wife were constantly annoyed by complainant, who taunted them wherever he met them. On the occasion in question he was remonstrated with, and became so excited as to proceed to take off his coat to fight, but defendant (who had his arm in a sling at the time) was induced to go away by a witness named Evan Roberts. No blo ws were struck at all. 4 Evan Roberts, said he saw complainant with his coat half off, but he did not see any blows struck. He induced defendant to go home. He did not see complainant and defendant talking to P. S. McWalter. The Bench considered the case proved, and inflicted a fine of 7s. 6d. with 19s. 6d. costs. a
