TAKEN FOR A GAMBLER. AN EDITOR IX THE DOCK. At the Pontypridd Police-court on Wednesday last a most amusing scene occurred. The presid- ing magistrate, Mr. T. P. Jenkins, together with Dr. H. W. Davies. Mr. Edward Thomas, and Mr. T. Jones were in the course of hearing a case of gambling at the People's Park, when a big, well- built man stepped into the dock. Mr. T. P. Jen- kins observing him, pointed' to the gentleman and asked, l> Is that the defendant ? This query was the signal for an outburst of laughter on the part of those who knew the gentleman, but A.P.S. Davies quickly came to the rescue, and cooly replied, No, sir, that gentleman happens to be the editor of the Free P/r,u, Pontypridd." (Loud laughter.)—air. T. P. Jenkins Oh I see. He has stepped into the defendant's place." (Re- newed laughter.)—Mr. R. Iwan Jenkyn, the editor referred to, blushed like a maiden and quickly de- parted from view. He was not seen in court again that day.
