The defendant had been arrested by P.C. Breeze, who ohased him on a bicycle. The defendant., who pleaded guilty, made an impassioned speech to the Bench, in which he said he would like to be tried by a jury. He was on his way to Liverpool. Unfortunately he had to pass through the county of Merioneth, and he had heard before he came that it was the worst county in the kingdom for tramps. The police were very keen after them, and a fellow in his position had either to beg[ starve, or steal. If he begged he would break the law, and if he stole he committed a felony. At any rate he was not going to starve for be preferred to steal. After some persuasion he consented to be dealth with summarily, and was sent to prison for one month with hard labour.
