ALLEGED FALSE 3 PRETENCES AT ABERKENFIG. A VICTIM OF DRINK COMMITTED FOR, TRIAL. An old man named Edward Limbart, labourer, who had until recently been in the employ of the Rev. James Jones, chaplain of the Glamorgan County Asylum at Rhyd, was placed in the dock of the Bridgend Police-court on Saturday, charged with having obtained, by falsely representing the name of that gentleman, a bottle of brandy and another of whisky, value 9s., from Mrs. Thomas, landlady of the Golden Lion Inn, Aberkenfig. The evidence of Mrs. Thomas was read to the effect that defendant came to her house on the previous Friday, and said he wanted half a dozen large bottles of stout and a bottle of Scotch whiskey for the Rev. James Jones. Witness knew him as having been in the service of Mr. Jones, and handed it him, prisoner putting them in a basket. On the following day (Saturday) he came again, bringing the empty bottles, and required another half-dozen bottles of stout and a bottle of brandy, to be charged to the Rev. James Jones. Witness gave them him, and he came again for more, but witness refused him.-The Rev. Jas. Jones said he had not seen the prisoner since the previous Wednesday week, when he left his service. He had not given him orders to procure any of these articles. Prisoner had always appeared honest while in his service. — Police-constable Button said he arrested prisoner on the previous Monday morning, about nine o'clock, at the Star Inn, Aberkenfig. On being charged with the offence prisoner said I had the spirits and drank them. Prisoner was next proceeded with on a charge of obtaining a leg of mutton from the shop of Mr. Thomas Jones, butcher, Aberkenfig, under a similar pretence.—Sarah Ann Jones deposed that on the 5th December the defendant came to the shop, and said he required a leg of mutton for Mr. Jones. She served him with it, and gave him the ticket as usual, which was now produced.—The Rev. James Jones said he did not give defendant instructions to get the mutton.—Police-constable Button said prisoner, in answer to the charge, said, I had the mutton, and had it cooked on Saturday what I couldn't eat I gave to my friends." Prisoner, who displayed signs of emotion, said he was very sorry. It was the first time he had done anything of the kind in his life, and no per- son could ever give him a dishonest character previously. The Bench committed him to take his trial at the next Quarter Sessions.
