Pirie-Gordon, J. B. Garsed-Price, F. D. Dickinson, A. A. Mitchell, Owen Price, D. Jones (Pytindu), G. C. James, John Morris, and T. Prosser Jones. The Clerk of the Peace (Mr H. F. W. Harries) reported that there were no pI isoners for trial, and that lie had issued the usual certificate to the Sheriff to dis- pense with the attendance of jurors. SCALE OF FEES.
