---, THOMAS DAVIS.
THOMAS DAVIS. [BY ALIQUIS]. (TII the Young Wales Society of Barry I dedicate this sketch.) II. Davis himself chose the name of the new iournal-Thr .Nation-and the following sentence, in which this spirit breathes, told the Irish people what its work would be :— Nationality is their first object-a nationality which will not only raise our people from their poverty by securing to them the blessing of a domestic legislature, but inflame and purify them with a lofty and heroic love of country a nationality of the spirit as well as the letter a nationality which may come to be stamped upon our manners and literature and our deeds a, nationality which may embrace Protestant, Catholic, and Dissenter—Milesian and Crom wellian, the Irishman of a hundred generations, and the stranger who is within our gates." Davies loved the whole Irish race, and for that reason he stood in a way apart from many men of his own genera- tion in Ireland, as he stands apart from many men of ours, both in Ireland and Wales. "The Catholic Bishops and Clergy," says his biographer to whom I presented him saw for the first time" an Irish Churchman who recognised the old race as the natural spokesmen of public opinion, who sympathised passionately with the historic memories of which they were proud, but never forgot or permitted others to forget that the Protestant minority were equally Irish- men, however much party policies might have separated them from the brethren." This idea of a common nationality pervaded the Young Ireland movement. I was brought up. said Daviu, a high Tory and an Episcopalian Protestant. And if 1 am no longer a Tory, it must be from convic- tion for all those nearest and dearest to me are Tories still." No man yielded to Davis in patriotism or courage. For Ireland a nation he was willing to shed his blood but he scorned to claim nationality for his own sect or party alone. He would never, we may feel assured ever have thought it worth while, as does Mr. Alfred Thomas, M.P., to gravely consider whether it is a valid objection to a Secretary of State for Wales, because that secretary may some day be a Tory. And it is not difficulty to imagine with what lofty scorn he would have rebuked the ill-considered language that the member for Mid-Glamorgan chose to use of the Church of England in England on the Clergy Discipline Bill last year language that called for- ward protests from English Nonconformists, and brought a blush to the cheek of every Welshman who is proud that he belongs to a Christian nation. To the Irish Tory Davis wrote We have no curse for you or yours, But friendship's ready grasp And faith to stand by you and yours, Until our latest gasp. To stand by you against all foes, How'er or whence they come, With traitor arts, or bribes, or blows, From England, France, or Rome. What matter that at different times Your fathers won this sod ? What matter that at rlitferent shrines We pray unto one God ? In fortune and in name we're bound, By stronger links than steel: And neither can be safe nor sound But in the others weal. Although Davis was called to the Irish Bar, he never practised. The whole of his short life was devoted to the Nation. Of the aim of the paper I have already spoken. It was written as Cymru, as the South Wales Star are written, to raise from the depths of materialism, or sectarianism, the old spirit of national patriotism. One of the first numbers of the Nation contained this stirring appeal to the chivalry of Ireland :— 11 The restoration of Irish independence has been advocated too exclusiyely by narrow appeals to economy, and sought by means which neither con- ciliated nor frightened its opponents. We shall try, and God willing, we shall succeed in arraying the memories of our land, the deep, strong passions of men's hearts in favour of our cause. Men still speak of compromises and material compensation for our lost nationality. But though English- men were to give us the best tenures on earth, though they were to equalise Presbyterian, Catholic and Episcopalian, though they were to give us the completest representation on their Parliament, restore our absentees, disencumber us of our debt, and redress every one of our fiscal wrongs in the names of liberty and country, we would still tell them, in the name of enthusiastic hearts, thought- ful souls and grateful spirits, that we spurned the gifts if the condition were that Ireland should remain a province." And with appeals to the patriotism of the hour the Nation re-called to Ireland's mind the glories of the past. In the pages of the Nation the old heroes of Ireland's past art. Macmurraugh, Hugh O'Neill, Sarsfield, Grattan once moie spoke from their graves to the land that they died to save. And as the writers in the Nation dwelt on the glories of the past the old Irish Muse awoke once more. In the early numbers of the Nation Davis's verses began to appear, and his countrymen soon saw in him one of the sweet singers of his native land. Davis loved to choose verse as his medium of ex- pression of '• his passionate convictions on the past and his rapturous reveries of the future." He assumed." says bis hiographer, "the signature of The Celt' to signify his descent from the Welsh and Irish Gael. and it was soon widely recognised that the soul of an old bardic race throbbed again I in his son?. He recalled with pride that the greatest modern lyrists, Beranger, Moore, and per- hap3 Burns, were Celts, and, as he insisted, brethren of the same family." On a former occasion I gave some specimens of Davis's verses in the South, If ales Star. I shall now quote more of his ballads, in the earnest hope that the hearts of some young South Walians. whose manly democracy still lacks the leaven of poetry and patriotism, and is still not free from sectarian narrowness and party spirit, may seek a further inspiration in the words of the greatest Celt of modern times. The first ballad that I shall quote is the song of the Irish fisher's love His kiss is sweet, his word is kind. His lo /e is rich to me I could not in a palace find A truer heart than he. The eagle shelters not his nest From hurricane and hail, More bravely than he guards my breast— The boatman of Kinsale. The wind that round the Fastnet sweeps, Is not a whit more pure The goat that down Cnoc Sheehy leaps, Has not a foot more sure. No firmer hand, nor freer eye E'er faced an autumn gale De Courcy's heart is not so high- The boatman of Kinsale. The brawling squires may heed him not, The dainty stranger sneer But who will dare to hurt our cot When Myles O'Hea is here ? The searlet soldiers pass along, They'd like, but fear to rail; His blood is hot, his blow is strong— The boatman of Kinsale. His hooker's in the Scilly van, When seines are in the feam But money never makes the man, Nor wealth a happy home. So, blert with love and liberty, While he can trim a sail, He'll trust in God and cling to me- The boatman of Kinsale. And from love, like the true Celt, he could pass at once to politics. I have already, I believe, quoted in the South Wales Star some stanzas from the glorious hymn of Irish national triumph in 1782, the echoes of which may well re-echo in a young Welshman's heart as a forecast of the day when Wales shall at last be under the shadow of her own hills, and Tom Ellis' aspiration- a national Parliameat-elected by the manhood and the womanhood of Wales, and responsible to them alone. Hurrah 'Tis done. Our freedom's won, Hurrah for the Volunteers; No laws we own but those alone, Our Common's, King and Peers. The chain is broke, the Saxon yoke From off our necks is taken. Ireland awoke, Dungannon spoke, With fear was England shaken. When Gratia, n rose, none dared oppose The claim he made for freedom. They knew our awoids to back his word, Were ready did he need them. Then let us raise to Grattan's praise A proud and joyous anthem, And wealth, and peace, and length of days May God in mercy grant him. Bless Harry Flood who nobly stood With us through stormy years; Bless Charhnont the brave, the good, The chief of the Volunteers. The North began, the North held on, The strife for freedom's land Till Erin rose and crushed her foes, God bless the Northern strand. And bless the men of patriot pen, Swift Molyneux and Lucas Bless sword and gun that free trade WM, Bless Heaven that n'er forsook us; And long may last the concord fast That binds us altogether; While we agree our foes may flee, Like clouds in stormy weather. Remember, still, through good and ill, How vain were prayers and tears How vain were words, till flashed the swor ls Of the Irish Volunteers. By arms we've got the rights we sought Through long and wretched years Hurrah 'tis done, our freedom's won J Hurrah for the V olunteerr. I And with equal force and power couia uavis dwell on the early scenes of Irish history. His ballad on the true Irish king is not merely impression as a ballad, but it shows a mastery of the spirit of early Celtio history, which is surpris- ing when it is remembered that he died many years previous to the historical school of Sir Henry Maine. Not only does the ballad describe the position of the true Irish kinsr, it equally describes the position of the true Welsh prince of olden days. The Caesar of Rome has a. wider domain, And the Ard Righ of France has more clans in his train, The sceptre of Spain is more heavy with gems, And our crown cannot vie with the Greek diadems; But king lier far before Heaven and man, Are the emerald fields, and the fire-eyod clan, The sceptre and state, and the poets who iing, And the swords that encircle a true Irish King. For he must have come from a conquering race, The heir of their valour—their glory, their grace, His frame must be stately, his steps must be fleet, His hand must he trained to each warrior feat. His face, as the harvest moon steadfast and clear, A head to enlighten, a spirit to cheer, While the foremost to rush when the battle brands ring; And the last to retreat is a true Irish King. But not for his courage, his strength or his name Can he from his clansmen the fealty claim The poorest, the highest choose freely to-day The chief that to-night they'll as truly obey For loyalty springs from a people's content, And the knee that is forced would be better unbeLt The Sascanach churls no such homage can bring As the Irishman's choice of a true Irish King. The chroniclers read him the law of the clan, And pledge him to bide by their blessing or ban His shield and his sword are unbuckled to show They only were meant for a foreigner foe. A white willow wand has been placed in his hand A symbol of upright and righteous command, While hierarchs are blessing the slipper they fling, And O'Canlon proclaims him a true Irish King. God aid him God save him, and smile on his reign! The terror of England, the ally of Spain; May his sword be triumphant on Saascanach ally, Be his throne ever girt with strong lands and true hearts. May the ccrse of his conquest run on till he see The flaf of Plantagenet sink in the sea May minstrels for ever his victories sing, And Saints make the bid of the true Irish King. These specimens, I trust, will furnish Welsh Nationalists with some idea of Davis's power as a poet. His verses show something of the weakness of hurried and extemporaneous effusions. He did not live long enough for his verses to acquire the ttyle or the grandeur of a poet of the first order. His verses are a young man's fancies, but they are the fancies of a young man whose soul could echo to high and noble ideas. And they have this exceeding merit. They are national. It is always the national story or the national scene that calls them to life. (To be Continued.')

BARRY AND CADOXTON LOCAL BOARD.
BARRY AND CADOXTON LOCAL BOARD. The usual monthly meeting of the members of the Barry and C.tdoxton Locil Board w is htdd on Tuesday afternoon, at the Local Board-room. Cadoxton. Barry. There were present Mr. John Robinson ("chairman), General Lee. Alderman Meggitt, Drs. O'Donnell and Treharne. and Messrs. George Thomas, William Thomas (Barry). William Thomas (Sully), J. Bars tow. B. Lewis, J. J. Williams, J. A. Hughes (clerk). Dr. G. Neale (medical officer of health), J. C. Pardoe (surveyor), A. E. Leyshon (inspector of nuisances), and C. Howe (collector). PRIVATE IMPROVEMENTS PROSECUTIONS. After a long discussion it was unanimously decided, on the motion of Mr. George Thomas, seconded by Dr. O'Donnell, that the clerk should be permitted to recover his legal charges from the defendants in county court actions for private improvement monies which the Board successfully prosecute. The CLERK pointed out that the work which was not mentioned in the list of duties of the clerk was very considerable. He hud already written over hundred letters pertaining to that special work, and he had to send his clerks into Cardiff county court offices repeatedly in reference to the actions, and he himself would have to appear at the different hearings. MISCELLANEOUS. The minutes of the Public Works Committee which mentioned among other matters, the desirability of a foot-bridge being erected to Palmerstown, were adopted, on the motion of the CHAIRMAN of the committee (Mr. George Thomas). Mr. J. J. WILLIAMS drew attention to the fact that six feet of paving had not been laid near the corner of Castleland-street. maintaining- that it should form part of the private improvements' contract. The SURVEYOR promised to look into the matter. A CADOXTON NUISANCE. Dr. O'DONNELL moved the adoption of the report of the Health Committee, which recom- mended, among other things, that the Barry Dock Land Company should be written to in reference to the prevailing nuisances in the lane at the back of their Main-street property near the Cadoxton Common. Mr. J. J. WILLIAMS wanted to know if the nuisance existed on the Barry Dock Land Com- pany's land. Dr. O'DONNELL admitted that it was not on their land, but it was on land which formed the back lane at the rear of their property, and owing to the depositing of refuse by the tenants a great nuisance had been caused. The position was this. The Board had communicated with the steward of the commoners, Mr. Morris, who could not get any- thing done, as they said that the owners had no right to communicate with the common. The committee therefore recommended that the Board should ask the owners to try and do something. Mr. GEORGE THOMAS failed to see that the com. pany should be held responsible for the nuisances caused by the tenants. The people who were responsible were those who caused them. Further discussion having ensued, the report of the committee was adopted. THE SMALL AGRICULTURAL HOLDINGS' BILL. In reference to the letter from the Board asking Mr. A. J. Williams to assist to get a clause inserted in the Small Agricultural Holdings' Bill, whereby the powers under that measure should be ad- ministered by the local authorities, and not the County Councils, a reply was received from the hon. member stating that it gave him great pleasure to accede to the request of the local board, as the Liberal party had already admitted that the administration of the powers of the measure in question should be entrusted to the local authorities. BYE-LAWS. A letter was read from the Local Government Board suggesting alterations to various bye-laws. On the motion of Dr. O'DONNELL, seconded by Mr. J. J. WILLIAMS, the letter was referred to the Bye-laws Committee. Dr. O'DONNELL remarked that a meeting of the Bye-laws Committee was much required. THE PROPOSED WARDS. The CLERK mentioned that in view of the ap- proaching enquiry into the desirability of dividing the district into wards, it was necessary that the members should decide what wards they would select, in order to get the sanction of the members of the county council who had been appointed ItS commissioners to hold the enquiry. He said he had arranged the members for the next three- yearly elections in fours, according to seniority, each member in that rotation having the choice of wards. This led to a long discussion, the Chairman maintaining that the seniority should date from more recent elections. There was, however, a concensus of opinion the other way. the custom in other towns being detrimental also to the success of Mr. Robinson's argument. After further discussions members allotted themselves to the respective wards as follows :—1893 election- East Ward. Mr. J. Barstow; West Ward, Mr. B. Lewis North Ward, Mr. J. J. Williams South Ward, Mr. George Thomas. 1894 election—East Ward, Mr. W. Thomas (Sully) West Ward. Mr. John Cory; North Ward. Dr. Treharne; South Ward, Mr. W. Thomas (Cadoxton). 1895 election -East Ward, Mr. John Robinson West Ward, Mr. J. C. Meggitt: North Ward. Dr. O'Donnell; Southward, General Lee.—What gave rise to a deal of amusement was the fact that Mr. Benjamin Lewis has to contest the Barry Ward next year, unless he decides to oppose one of the other retiring candidates. INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL COMMITTEE. The CLERK stated that in view of the fact that an intermediate school was about being erected in the district—the County Council having signified their intention of contri- buting £ 2,000—the committee thought that it would be well if a new committee were elected, such committee to be chosen as follows :—Local Board to select five members, School Board five members, and Barry Trades Council two members. Mr. O. H. Jones had, however, written to him, pointing out that outside representation on the government of a school which was intended to serve for the surrounding district as well, would be debarred. He (the Clerk) suggested that the Board should appoint someone who would ropre- sent the surrounding locality. The Board agreed with this, and the following five were appointed :—Mr. O. H. Jones, J.P. (Fonmon), Alderman J. C. Meggitt. Dr. W. Lloyd-Edwards, and Messrs. D. Roberts (shipping master) and J. J. Moon. THE RECENT DROWNING FATALITY AT CADOXTON. The CLERK referred to the fact that an inquest was recently held on the drowning of a child at Cadoxton. At that enquiry the jury passed a resolution at the end of their verdict asking the coroner to communicate with the Local Board ask- tng them to give all the owners of property in the district, who had dangerous places unfenced, notice requesting them to fence the same. He pointed out at the inquest, and the coroner agreed with his law, that the Local Board, as a Local Board, had no authority to fence off dangerous places, and that they could uot enforce it. Even if it was adjoining on a road they had no authority, but if anything serious resulted the owner would be to blame. (Hear, hear.) If any owner permitted a dangerous spot to remain unfenced he did so at his own risk. (Hear, hear.) A long and animated discussion then ensued in reference to the cesspool where the fatality in question occurred? It appeared that the only way to do away with the cesspool was by proceeding with certain drainage work from Court-road to Barry-road, notice to construct which had been given, such work to he included in Mr. Rutter's contract. However, it seemed that a difficulty lay in the way from the fact that a neighbouring owner-the name of Dr. Milward being mentioned -had neglected to give the surveyor the line of roadway in spite of frequent applications, and it was eventually decided, on the motion of Mr. G. Thomas, supported by Dr. O'Donnell and Mr. Meggitt, that unless the line of roadway was given in a week, the drain should be laid as near the existing hedge as possible. THE ALLOTMENTS QUESTION. The CLERK reported in reference to the allot- ments question in the district that the present allotments which were supplied by the Barry Railway Co., Barry Estate Co., and the Barry Dock Land Co., were only temporary. He said it was for the Board to consider the desirability of taking steps to get land which would be permanently devoted to allotment purposes. Alderman MEGGITT said that previously there had been difficulty in negotiating for land for allot- ments in the district owing to the enormous building, but now that building was not so active they might get land. He moved that they should appoint a committee of four to see if they could get land for the purposes of allotments. W-Mr. J. J. WILLIAMS seconded the resolution, which was agreed to, and it was decided that such committee should consist of Alderman Meggitt, and Messrs. J. Barstow, W. Thomas (Sully), and W. Thomas (Barry). PUBLIC MORTUARY. The CLERK drew attention to the question of providing a publie mortuary in the district, and pointed out that the Board had purchased five acres of land. Mr. G. THOM VS moved, and Mr. BARSTOW sec-.mded, that ;>ie«matter should he referred to the Slaugl. f-r II. use Committee which was agreed i to. PHOTOS, !) VOLUNTEER RIUE BRIGADE. A di^cusswn tock place ;:s to the great need nf n. Volnnt.f»T fire b'ade in the district, and. at the suggestion of General LEE. seconded by Dr. O'DONVELL, the chairman was deputed to call a public meeting for the purpose of discussing the matter. COTTAGE HOSPITAL. The Clerk also introduced this question, and Mr. Meggitt moved, and Dr. Treharne seconded. that the Chairman should call a public meeting to consider the matter.—The resolution was agreed to nem. con. A CHEAP TRIP TO LONDOS FOR THE CHAIRMAN. The CLERK read a letter from the secretary of the Local Boards' Association, with which the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board is affiliated, stating that the annual conference of the associa- tion would be held at the Westminster Palace Hotel, London, on June the 6th, and inviting the Board to send a delegate. Mr. GEORGE THOMAS moved, and Mr. J. J. WILLIAMS seconded, that the chairman should I represent the board at the conference, which was agreed to. A PETTY PRINTER'S INSULTING SCRIBBLC. The CLERK read a letter from a Barry printer complaining of the way the printing work of the Board was done, and alleging that partiality was shown. He insolently added that it was no use giving tenders, as long as the tenders were opened by a certain gentleman. The CLERK said that most of the members of the Board were aware that he was connected with a printing company in the district, and ever since he had been most particular that so far as he was concerned not a single printing order was not let until tenders were obtained. Although this had been very inconvenient, especially when small orders were required, yet he had done so. All he could say was that the contents of the letter were totally untrue. Several members thought the letter was a most insulting one.-Dr. O'Donnell agreed The letter, he said, was a most impertinent one, and insinuated dishonourable action to the officials and members of the Board. He did not think any notice should be taken of it. If any complaint was to be made it should be done in a respectful manner.—General Lee said he observed the name of the writer on the Finance Committee's minutes as being paid a bill for printing.—Mr. Thomas agreed.—Dr. O'Donnell moved that the letter should be allowed to lie on the table.—Mr. W. Thomas (Barry) seconded, and General Lee supported, the resolution, which was unanimously agreed to.-General Lee thought it would be well that all the printing of the Board should be done by one printer for a. stated period, say three mouths, the other printers to have it in turn. It was pointed out that a question would then arise as to the price of such work, the present work being let by tender. Eventually, on the suggestion of Dr. Treharne, the matter was referred to the Finance Committee. NOTICES OF MOTION. Mr. W. THOMAS (Barry) gave notice to move at the next meeting that a copy of all specifications issued should be sent to each member of the board, also that two members in rotation should inspect all public works in the district, and report to the board. NEW LOCAL BOARD OFFICES. General Lee What about the new local board offices ?—The Clerk We have applied to Mr. Forrest for a piece of land opposite the new board schools, and he has promised to give us a definite answer.-The Clerk was deputed to write to Mr. Forrest again. This was all the business.

; SERIOUS ACCIDENT NEAR .…
SERIOUS ACCIDENT NEAR BARRY. Last Saturday night Mr. Watts, a farmer and butcher, living at Penmark, met with a very serious accident near Barry. It appears that Mr. serious accident near Barry. It appears that Mr. Watts, who was accompanied by a boy. had left his son's shop at the Barry market buildings to ride home in his trap to Penmark. After pro- ceeding through Porthkerry Park, the boy got out of the trap to lead the horse up the steep piece of road near Porthkerry rectory. When he went to get into the trap at the top of the road he was surprised to find that his master was not in it. Retracing his steps down the hill he found Mr. Watts lying on the road, groaning loudly. The boy ran to the rectory and other places for assistance, and eventually the injured man, who must have fallen accidentally out of the trap, was removed home and medically attended to. It was found that he had broken his back. He remains in a precarious condition, and faint hopes are entertained of his recovery.

ALLEGED HIGHWAY ROBBERY AT…
ALLEGED HIGHWAY ROBBERY AT COG AN. SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST THREE YOUNG MEN. PRISONERS COMMITTED TO THE ASSIZES. At the Penarth Police-court on Monday—before Mr. J. S. Corbett (in the chair). Major Thornley. Mr. Llewellyn Wood, and Mr. T. R. Thompson- Daniel Radley, William Sidford, and Albert Hutchins were brought up on remand on a charge of stealing, with violence, from Charles Hclverson, a boarding-house keeper, at Cogan. on Friday last. the sum of 15s. and a pipe and tobacco pouch. Mr. T. H. Belcher defended. The case created interest, from the fact that the defendants are respectable young fellows and prominent members of local football clubs. The court was crowded during the lengthy hearing. -Prosecutor, who resides at Barry Dock, repeated the evidence he gave at the hearing at the Magistrates Office the previous Thursday. He said he came to Penarth on Friday, and paid a bill amounting to; Z 1 2s. 6d. a to Mr. Davey. When be left home he had 4 2 5s. in a his possession. He could not say at what time he met the prisoners at the St. Fagan's Hotel. They were perfect strangers to him. He had several glasses of beer there, and they all went together to a club. He left the club in time to catch the ten to eleven train home. He thought he was at Penarth abor t four hours. lie could not remember how much le had to tÜink. He was not requested to leave He club because of his drunken and quarrelsome be- haviour. When he left tho club he had 15s. fid. in his possession. He paid for three drinks of beer in the Windsor Hotel. The defendants were with him. He left the Windsor, from the station, and was overtaken by the defendants. Radley put his hand in his (complainant's)pocket,and took out his pipe and tobacco pouch. Sidford searched the other pocket and took the money. He had no doubt as to the identity of the defendants. Cross-examined by Mr. Belcher He did not know what time he left Barry Dock. He called at the station refreshment rooms and had two glassft of beer before getting into the train. He came to Penarth to pay a bill of £ 1 2s. 6d., and after he had done so at the St. Fagan's Hotel he had a sovereign remaining, in silver and coppers. Fur- ther questioned, he said he had A 2 5s. when he left home. He could not say how much he spent at the St. Fagan's Hotel. He afterwards went to a club, where he remained about four hours. During the time he was there he might have had a glass about every quarter of an hour, which would come to about sixteen or seventeen glasses. He could not say how much he spent at the club. When he left to catch the train he went to another public-house to get a glass of beer. He was not requested to leave the club because of his drunken and quarrelsome behaviour. At the time he left the club he counted the money he had in his pocket on the road down to the Windsor Hotel. There was no one with him when he counted his money. He then found he had 15s. 6d. He was certain it was the three defend- ants who robbed him. When at the police station he picked up the pipe and pouch, and was about to commence smoking. Radley told him to put them down. as they belonged to him.—Margaret Dever- ing, wife of William Devering, a sailor, said she lodged at the plaintiff's house. She identified the pouch and pipe produced as belonging to prosecutor. She had seen pouches and pipes similar to those produced.—Henry Rowe, manager of the Unionist Club, Arcot-street, Penarth, said on the night in question the prosecutor and the three defendants came to the club, not altogether but at different times. Sidford played cards with the prosecutor, the two other defendants playing at another table. There was no quarrel of any kind. Prosecutor, who was practically sober. left at a quarter to 11, and about five minutes afterwards Sidford asked where the Dutchman had gone, witness stating that he did not know. Sidford then said to Hutchins, Come on," and they went off together. Radley not going until some time after.—Cross- examined He saw during the evening that Radley had a pipe and pouch. It was a wooden pipe. Hutchins returned to the club that night. at about twenty minutes past eleven, remaining about twenty minutes. Prosecutor being only a visitor did not pay any money for beer that night. -By the Bench He heard mention by the defendants of having had bad luck at cards, and that is the reason why he did not tell them which way the prosecutor had gone. Prosecutor, re- called, said he was a member of the Barrv Dock branch of the same club.—Bernard S. Clarke, landlord of the Windsor Hotel, Penarth. said he recollected the prosecutor and Radley and Hutchins coming to his house shortly before eleven on the night in question. They had two glasses of beer and a glass of mild and bitter, which came to 5d.. prosecutor paying for it in the smoke-room. The two prisoners went out before him Sidford was not in the house at all. lie (witness) did not see auy of them again. Prosecutor, before leaving. asked which was the way to the station, and Oila of the two defendants who were present shouted out through the door, We.I! show you the way." Prosecutor, who seemed to be in a stupid state, was very anxious to catell the train, and witness had great diMieuity in getting him out to run for the train.—Police-constable Salter and Police-constable Bowen proved the arrest of the prisoners. They both stated that though prosecutor had been drinking, he seemed to know pretty well what he was about. He was excited about the robbery.—Mr. Belcher made an eloquent speech for the defence, severely criticising the prosecutor's evidence, and maintaining that no jury could possibly convict on the evidenco which had been laid before them that day.—The Bench committed the prisoners to take their trhl at the assizes to be held at Swansea in August next. bail being allowed each defendant in the sum of jC 50, and twoeureties J of d625 each. Bail was forthcoming.
