PONTYPRIDD POLICE-COUHT. Before the Stipendiary, and Mr. T. P. Jenkins. ATTEMPTED HIGHWAY ROBBEPY.—Da^ id Wil- liams and William Marks were brought up in custody charged with attempting to rob a farmer named Ithel Williams, Gelliiwlch, Llanwonno, on Monday night list. From the evidence of the complainant it appeared that he was walking home, and when about a mile from Pontypridd the two defendants came up to him, and one of them tried to put his hand in his (the witness') pocket. The farmer had a gun in his hand, and told the would-be robbers to stand back or he would shoot them. He then made them walk before him all the way home, where he put them in charge of two servant men, and went himself to fe.;ch a policeman. He had, at the time, about £3 5s. in his pocket.—Defendants denied the charge, and the case was dismissed, no corroborative evidence being forthcoming. LARCENY.—-William Pitten and John Thomas, colliers, working at the Maritime Colliery, were charged with a larceny of £2 3s. The facts of the case were that the men had received the money due to another man, named Thomas Rowlands. It appeared that Rowlands had for two years worked under the number 194, but by mistake these men obtained the wages due to No. 194.—Mr. D. Rhys (Messrs. Morgan Rhys) contended that it was the duty of the defendants to make known the mis- take when they found it out. ri .ie Stipendiary said the point was whether the men knew at the time they were paid whether it was a mistake or not. If the defendants were honest men they would have returned the money afterwards, but according to the law they were only guilty if they knew of the fraud at the time. Mr. Rhys replied that the men had promised to restore the money on condition that they were kept at work. William Homes, cashier, said he paid the money to William Pitten, who had a joint ticket with John Thomas. The right amount due to them was 4s. 8d. It was a'ter the pay that he found out the mistake, and when he did he asked Pitten whether he had received too short. Witness then pointed out the mistake, and then h3 admitted having received it and signed a receipt, and promised to repay the money if they obtained a good stall. The Stipendiary thought that a jury might think that the cashier was as negligent as them- selves. He would order them to pay 30s. each towards the cost. FIGHT FOR A GIRL.—Benjamin Joseph Wicks charged Aithur Goodfield with assaulting him on the 23rd. Iv appears that the complainant was keepirg con p: ny with a M'ss Lewis, a dress- maker, and c Friday night uhe defendant saw the two together, and. bfing jealous, he struck him twice in tl e face and oace in the side. The defen- dant, however, denied having ouched him.—Miss Annie Le". is said she was out with the complain- ant on Friday, when Goodfield came up, and Wicks told him he was not wanted. Goodfie'd, however, pushed him aiid struck him.—He was fined £1, including cr 1b. STEALING PEARS.—David Ejwa-ds, William Jones, Benjamin Reynolds, and George Gaze, all boys resident at Pontypridd, we.e charged with stealing a quantity of pear- the property of Rodf ick Vick, greeng -ocer.- The Bench ordered them to receive each r 'x strokes of the birch rod. STEALING A WATCH.—William Thomas Israel, an engine clriver, was charged with stealing a watch from Daniel Evans, Gelligaled-road, Ystrad, It seems that the prosecutor came to Pontypridd on the 8th of September, and went to the Ivy Bush hotel, where, after a while, he fell asleep. When he awoke about ten o'clock he found the watch gone. He did not see the defendant in the house at all. The following day he met the defendant at the Red Lion Inn, and he admitted having taken the watch, and pawned it.—Barnett Isa* T>o •: h, said that the defendant pawned the wa ,c at his father's shop, and obtained 10s. 6d. for it.—The Bench committed the prisoner to take his trial at the next assizes. ANOTH; R THEFT.—James Williams was charged with pawning a watch worth £4 -*s., the property of Thomas Andrews, Wcod-road, Pontypridd. It appears that the defendant had bought the watch from the prosecutor, and promised to pay lOt. per fortnight. He paid 15s. on delivery. He had since paid 27s., and then went away. The watch produced by Police-constable Rees Davies was the article sold.—Otto Faller, a pawnbroker, at Ponty- pridd, said the watch was pawned at his shop on the 6th of June last by the prisoner. The value of the watch was £1 12s. 6d.—The Stipendiary said the man had already paid the value of the watch, but yet he did not say there was nothing unjust in the sale, as they ran a great risk. He wou'd fine the defendant £1, or send him for a month's imprisonment.
