Glamorgan Quarter Sessions. Outrage at Pontygwaith. At the Glamorgan Quarter Sessions on Wednesday, William George Rees (21), collier, was indicted for assaulting Rachel Ann Williams with intent to outrage her at Pontygwaith. Mr. Kelly prosecuted, and Mr. Rhys Williams defended. It was alleged that whilst, prosecutrix was cross- ing the mountain prisoner accosted her, threw her on the ground, and attempted to outrage her. A struggle ensued, and during its progress prisoner asked her for money. She gave him a shilling to go away. A little girl from a neighbouring farm came, on the scene, whereupon pri- soner ran away. The jury found prisoner guilty of indecent assault, and recom- mended him to the leniency of the Court. He was sentenced to three months' hard labour. A Tonyrefail Case. David Meade (27), haulier, Albert, James Copley (21), collier, and William Henry Davies (27), haulier, were charged with stealing two lady's jackets, a cape, four yards of dress material, and four account books, the property of Samuel Thomas, at Tonyrefail. Mr. Sankey prosecuted, and Mr. Parsons defended. The allegation was that prosecutor, a credit draper, while on his way from Mountain Ash to Pen- rhiweeiber, sat down to rest on the, canal bank. The prisoners came up and took the parcels he had with him away. Before the case for the defence had concluded, the senior vice-chairman interposed, and suggested there was no intention to steal, and prisoners were acquitted. The Blaengwynfi Affair. Robert Thomas Duncan, a respectable- looking young man, surrendered to his bail on a charge of indecently assaulting Mar- garet Booth, of 35, Jersey Road, Aber- gwynn, on September 30th. Mr. Sankey prosecuted, and Mr. Arthur Lewis de- fended. The facts, as detailed by the prosecutrix, were that in pursuance of her calling as a tea traveller, prosecutrix was going from Treherbert to Blaengwynfi, on the Rhondda and Swansea Bay Railway, and the prisoner, while, she was in the train waiting for it, to start, came up, and leaning with his arms over the'lowered window asked her about her business, and where she lived. She replied Blaengwynfi, and as the train was starting, prisoner jumped into the carriage. During the journey from Treherbert to Blaenrhondda prisoner asked her about her mother, whom she said was dead, and her father, whom she told him was in Swansea Hospi- tal. Then he put his arm round her neck and kissed her, and afterwards tried to behave indecently. She screamed,, and prisoner desisted, and as the train brought up at, Blaenrhondda, he jumped out, and escaped. The cross-examination of the prosecu- trix was directed to the question of identity. In defence evidence was called to prove an alibi, and the jury accepting this re- turned a verdict of "Not guilty," and pri- soner was discharged.
