SERIOUS POACHING AFFRAY AT. HENLLAN. KEEPERS AND POACHERS INJURED. On Tuesday night, it appears that a fierce encounter took place at Plas Heaton, Henllan, between Mr. W. C. Jonas' gamekeepers and several poachers, who attempt d to set their nets in a rabbit warren on the estate. John Griffith, the head keeper, accompanied by two other keepers, ob erved the poachers before the latter had time io bit; a single r,,bbit. Gritiith fearlessly entered th warren in pursuit, but was immediately attacked by five or six men, and a desperate encounter seems to have taken place. Griffith, who is a strong athletic looking man, stood his ground, and struck right and left with the butt end of his gun, which was smashed, and became useless. We under- stand that more than one of his assailants must have suffered severely -it his hands The other keepers, however, were not able to render him much assistance, and he hul perforce to give in to such a determined assault. The men made good their escape, but lost) their nets, wh ch are now in the possession of the keepers. The police, on being informed ot the encounter, were busy on Wednesday making enquiries with the view of arresting the guilty persons. On suspicion of being concerned in the above affray, the police, on Wednesday, arrested a man named Evan Bather, of Henllan Street, and later in the day brought him before Mr. Clough and Mr. Robert Owen at the Magistrates Court, charged with poaching Mr. A. O. Evans, who appeared for Mr. W. C. Jones, Llanereh, thp owner of the shooting rights, applied for a remand until Friday; and the application was granted On Thursday, the police alsi> apprehended Robert Thomas Jones, Henllan Street, another well known poacher, for being concerned in the same offence, and ke will also be charged in company with Bather.
