They were both drunk and disorderly. I went to them and asked their names, which they gave, and then requested them to go home quiet. By the Bench They were shouting and cursing. P.C John Pierce I was called previously, about 9.15 p.m., by one. Ann Jones, Castlemalgwyn Lodge, to turn the defendant and the other person out of the house.

I have not had instructions from the Superintendent not to do duty in Pembrokeshire. The woman in a widow. The defendants were in the house before I went in. The woman called me in; I was on the road leading to Boncath. I saw the defendants in the house, and turned them out. I followed them to the Cardiganshire side, and told them to go home, which they did. I can't say they were straight in the legs, as they were drunk. William Evans, the defendant (whose evidence was admissible under the Licensing Act), sworn, said I am plumber in the employ of Mr. John Myers, and am defendant in this case. I recollect being at Llechryd on the day in question. I went from Cardigan to Cilgerran with William Evans, of Haverfordwest, the defendant in the previous case, who worked with Mr. J. Griffiths, plumber. ,A.t Cilgerran, I had a cup of tea with a friend; my companion did not come in and take tea. I can't say what he partook of when I was in the house. I took nothing but tea at Cilgerran. I afterwards went towards Llechryd, and on my way overtook my companion, William Evans, and found that he had taken some beer. At the Carpenters' Arms, Llechryd, I had a "blue" of beer, but it was re- fused my companion. We then went down to the Tivy-Side Inn, and had a glass of beer each we stayed there for an hour and a half. Did not drink anything from the time I left Cardigan until I re- turned, except what I have mentioned. I saw the police constable at the widow's house, Castlemal- gwyn lodge, with another man wearing corduroy trousers. We left, and the police constable fol- lowed us as we went straight home. Did not speak a word to anyone on my way home, and did not say a word to the police officer during the whole time. By the Police: Mrs. Thomas refused to give beer to my companion. Frederick Wright, Pendik sworn, said: I re* member the night of Sunday, the 10th instant. I saw William Evans standing at his father's door it was about 10 p.m., not after 10. He walked with me from his father's house as far as Finch's Square. He was perfectly sober. Case dismissed.
