YSTRAD POLICE COURT. MONDAY".—Before the Stipendiary. Messrs. Alder- man W. Morgan and T. P. Jenkins. UNLICENSED DOGS.—For keeping dogs without a license, Elizabeth Jones, Tonypandy Thomas Burrows. Tonypandy, and Frederick Green, Tre- alaw, were summoned, and ordered to pay the costs of the court. A DOWNWARD CAREER.—Amongst the very large number of drunkards who were brought for- ward was a man named William Roberts, a member of the Festiniog (North Wales) School Board, and a son of the celebrated Dr. Roberts, of this town, who was on Tuesday last found by the police drunk and disorderly at Tonypandy. It appears that the defendant also indecently exposed him- self. Since he has been in the Rhondda Valley Roberts has been cutting coal at Clydach Vale, and has not lived what may be termed a pure respect- able life. He was fined 5s. for drunkenness, and 15s. for indecent exposure. WAS IT KLEPTOMANIA?—A man named Henry Alexander, a native of Treorky, was brought up in custody on a charge of stealing two glasses, value twopence, from the'Market Tavern. Treorky, and a part of a brush handle, valued at sixpence, for George Henry Hooper, of the Queen's Hotel, Pentre. The defendant, so it appeared from the evidence adduced, seemed to take a pride in this dishonest action, and showed the articles which he had stolen to a man named John John, with whom he was playing skittles. The police collared him, and he admitted his guilt, and was fined £1 for stealing the tumblers, but the second charge was dismissed. CAUSING OBSTRUCTION.—From the evidence of a Ferndale policeman it appeared that the town was greatly amused at the actions of a certain Ebenezer Daniel, who took great pleasure in shouting in the streets, and thereby causing a large crowd to gather around him. He was by no means a violent man, but after indulging in the cup that cheers and inebriates he was generally merry, and caused considerable annoyance to the publicand the police. On Saturday night last he once more rehearsed his hobby and was locked up. The magistrates, how- ever, took compassion on the poor fellow, and dis- missed him with a caution. STOP TAP—William Lloyd, the landlord of the King's Head, Ystrad, summoned Charles and John Barnes with refusing to quit his house on the pre- vious Saturday night, and the former was also charged with assaulting Mrs. Lloyd by throwing over a quantity of beer. The two defendants came in on Saturday night, a few minutes after 11. and asked for refreshments. The landlord, who was of course a law-abiding individual, refused, and told them to go away. They entirely disregarded that gentleman's kindly advice, and threw the contents of a pint measure which was on the counter into his wife's face, and slammed and kicked the door. The Bench ordered Charles. to forfeit a sovereign for the assault, and fined them 15s. each for breaking the licensing laws. SETTING A CHIMNEY ON FIRE.—John Rowe, Pentre, was summoned for setting fire to his chimney on Sunday morning last, and fined 5s. PERSONATING A TRA^ ELLER.—On Sundav last James Morgan, of Heolfach, visited the Cross.Keys Inn, Tonypandy, and obtained the usual refresh- ments. Whilst in the act of drinking the health of the landlord, a policeman entered, and James told him he was a hona-fide traveller. The officer, however, became suspicious, and lodged his man at Her Majesty's expense, and meanwhile found he lived not far away. And the magistrates ordered him to pay costs. ASSAULT.—William Brumble charged Alfred Harry, of Ystrad, with assaulting him on the pre- vious Monday evening. Harry went to Bramble's house, and a quarrel ensued. A struggle followed, in the course of which Brumble's coat was torn. —The Bench ordered him to pay costs. A BRUTAL HUSBAND.—Eliza Harris. Treorky, a married woman, sought for an order to force her husband to maintain her and her two children. The parties had been married for seven years, and the husband had cruelly treated her during that time. Since he last assaulted her he had gone away, she know not whither, and the Bench ordered a warrant to be issued for his arrest.
