CARNARVONSHIRE POLICE COMMITTEE. THE ESCAPE OF A DEFAULTING COLLECTOR. A quarterly meeting was held on Thursday at Carnarvon, Mr. Jones-Morris (chairman) presiding. The Mayor of Carnarvon (Mr. E. Hughes) and Dr. Parry attended as a deputa- tion from the town council of the borough to ask that the grand jury room might be used as a court for judicial business, Mr. J. R. Prit- chard, as a borough justice, remarking that the Guildhall Court was most unsuitable for sittings. It was agreed that the application should be considered at the next meeting. The chief constable (Colonel Ruck), in his quarterly report, stated that 56 crimes had been committed, being a decrease of seven upon the previous three months for the whole year the crimes reported were 220, against 223 for the previous year. For non-indictable offences there were 316 convictions. The number of tramps relieved was 623, against 781 for the corresponding quarter last year, and seven were convicted. The value of property stolen was E675 12s 3d., including £ 594 embezzled. Seven publicans were proceeded against for breaches of the Licensing Act", four being con- victed.

Lewis and Mr. Robert Hughes (Llanfairfechan) supported the motion, which was onposed by Mr. Kneeshaw, Mr. Menzies, Mr. W. A. Darbishire, and the Hon. T. J. Wynn, and lost, only five voting for it. Mr. C. H. Darbishire called attention to the escape of J. D. Davies, the Penmaenmawr defaulting rate collector, and moved the fol- lowing resolution:— That the chief constable be requested in the That the chief constable be requested in the interest of the efficiency and prestige of the force, to make a thorough investigation of the case, and report fully to this committee.
