A BRIDGEND LANDLORD FINED. At Bridgend on Saturday, William Brown, landlord of the Masons' Arms, Bridgend, was summoned for being open on Sunday last and George James, fitter, Newcastle, Bridgend James James, carpenter, South-street, Oldcastle, Bridg- end Brown Gregory, plasterer, Park street, Bridgend, were summoned for being on licensed premises on Sunday. — Acting sergeant John Button stated that defendant's house was near the brewery. Last Sunday ha was instructed to watch the premises, in company with Police-constable Sloley. At 8.45 a.m. they saw three men enter the backyard of the Masons' Arms. They were out of sight for ten minutes, when they came out and went away. At 10.30 they saw a man named Gregory, a mason, enter the house, and he remained five minutes. They then saw the defendants go into the house, and witness went round to the back. Police-constable Sloley going to the front door. When in sight of the back door he saw the landlord's neice standing in the door. She said, Run the policeman is by the front door." De- fendant James James came out and passed witness, who asked him what he was doing there, and he made no reply. Witness saw George James in the kitchen, and on the table were two pints of fresh-drawn beer. George James made no reply when asked what he was doing there, but went next door without a word. Witness saw Gregory with a pint vessel about half full of beer near him on a bench. Witness called the landlady's atten- tion to the two Jameses, and also to Gregory. She said, "I have not seen the two Jameses this morn- ing. neither did I supply them with any beer, but I did supply Gregory, because he has been work- ing here since six o'clock this morning." Witness said that was an untruth, because he had not entered the house more than 15 minutes before he (witness) went in. The neice then said, I must tell the truth. It was I who filled the two pints for the Jameses, and the Missis did not know anything about it.—Police-constable Robert Sloley said that he was in company with Police- Sergeant Button last Sunday, when they watched the house for a considerable time. What the last witness had said was correct. Witness went to the front door whilst Acting-sergeant Button went to the back. He knocked at the front door, and the landlady came and answered from inside, Who is there Witness said, It is the police, open the door." He then heardsomeone say. Run, the police are at the front door." The landlady then opened the front door, and witness went in. Be- fore he could get to the back the two Jameses had disappeared. Witness then went back to the kitchen, and saw Brown Gregory sitting there, and another man with him. There was a pint pot partly full of beer beside him. The other man, whose name was Thomas Davies. was work- ing there that morning cleaning horses. Witness saw him carrying water out all the morning. He asked Gregory what business he had there, and he said that he had been there since six o'clock in the morning, working. Witness told him that was an untruth, as they had seen him go in only about a quarter of an hour before. To that Gregory made no reply. When the landlady was spoken to by the last witness she denied all knowledge of the Jameses being there, and then they (the police) told her what they had seen. The landlady then said that if they had had any beer it must have been supplied to them by her neice, who then admitted supplying the two Jameses with two pints. Witness saw the landlord, who said that he knew nothing about it having been ill in bed. Witness knew that the landlord had something the matter with his eyes.—George James stated that he was on the premises for the purposes of attend- ing engine repairs, &e.—Thomas Davies, engine- man to Mr. W. Brown, said that he went for Geo. James, as they could not get the water in the boiler. They began the job on Saturday night, and on Sunday morning witness started the engine. Witness was seated in the kitchen waiting for George James to return, and told Police-constable Button that they were working at the machinery, They could not get the water in the boiler without George James. Witness had a pint of beer in his hand, but I did not see a pint on the settle. Witness saw Brown Gregory in the kitchen. He did not hear the neice say she had drawn the two pints for the James.—By Superintendent Thomas He could not say what time it was that George James came to the house. Witness did not see George James at all until after the bother with the police. Witness knew nothing of what occurred between 10.30 and 11.30 when the police entered the house.—William Brown was fined £1. the case against George James was dismissed, and James James and Brown Gregory were each fined 10s.
BRIDGEND NOTES. The success which has attended the new Liberal Club at Bridgend ought to encourage those Liberals in the other districts of the South Glamor- gan Division who may be contemplating the establishment of a similar organisation in their own localities. This is a good time of the year in which to initiate such clubs. There can be no doubt that the existence of a club, pledged to support and inculcate the principles of any political party, materially strengthens the hold which that party has upon the district of which the club forms a centre. It is stated that at Bridgend during the coming winter there will be several evenings devoted to lectures and debates, and these will doubtless prove a great source of attraction. What to do during the long winter evenings is a problem which puzzles many. Of course, to those wishful to perfect their education—or rather to increase their knowledge, for no man's education can be termed complete—the opportunities which will be afforded under the auspices of the County Council (and fortunately Bridgend has been chosen as one of the centres) will prove very welcome. But it not everybody who is ani- mated with any such desires, and even supposing that they were. many would still gladly avail themselves of the advantages which membership of a political club confers. One of the most essential matters to be looked after when forming a new club. is to endeavour to enlist the sympathy and support of the leading members of the party living in the neighbourhood, and in this respect the Bridgend Club has been exceptionally fortunate. All the leading gentle- men belonging to the party in the town have joined, and with such support, and an energetic and capable committee and staff, it might be said there is no reason why every district in the division should not have a Liberal Club. In these notes reference has occasionally been made to matters connected with the Glamorgan County Police, and as in any other occupation in which a large body of men are engaged, matters of interest in connection with the police are con- stantly cropping up. In the Bridgend district (under Mr. Superintendent Thomas) are now stationed a very large number of officers and men, and one who has lived in the district a long time, and has had ex- ceptional opportunities of witnessing the conduct of the men, has expressed an opinion to the effect- that a finer body of men than those now doing police duty in Superintendent Thomas' district it would be impossible to find. This being an admitted fact the future course of events will be watched by the public with interest. It is an open secret that before very long certain promotions in the county police may be expected, a.nd doubtless the Superintendent of this division will see that those serving under him who are qualified, and have good claims to promotion will not be overlooked. There is nothing which con- duces more to a good feeling in any force than the knowledge that men who have by long service, and an intelligent discharge of duty earned it will, as opportunity occurs, obtain promotion. Much satisfaction is expressed that the police have captured the man who committed the assault upon Miss David. The frequency with which such outrages are reported now-a-days seems to show that offences of that nature are becoming more common. Fortunate is it, therefore, when an offender of this description is brought to justice as the penalty inflicted upon those caught is generally of a nature to act as a warning to others. It may be, of course, that this class of offence is not more common, but that it is heard more of now than in former days owing to the greater publicity given to police-court cases by the Press than used to be the case in the good (?) old times. Those persons who may wish to be present in the Police-court at Bridgend must try in future to maintain order a little better than they have done in the past. Some of those who seem to be as regular in their attendance as the magistrates and the police seem to think they are at perfect liberty to comment upon the evidence as it is being given and to laugh at whatever strikes them as ludi- crous. Complaint has been made of this conduct, and those who are wise will take the hint and will behave better in future. The Bench have power to deal summarily with anyone who wilfully in- terferes with the order in court, and no doubt they will exercise it if any very flagrant case is brought before them.
PORTHCAWL NOTES. —♦ The weather has been most delightful during this month. Never in the history of this place have there been so many visitors before, either as day trippers or lodgers. Immense have been some of the day crowds. So well prepared have the tradesmen been that all get supplied. The visitors should try to arrange to come in turns and not flock together so much. They come in shoals, and leave as such. Just fancy, 4u0 visi- tors leaving in one day and 500 another" day. The strain is rather too much upon railway officials and others to cope with such increased traffic. Tradesmen and householders are all too busy to pay attention to the crying wants of Porthcawl just now. When the season is over I fancy there will be some social earthquakes in Porthcawl. You know we were favoured with a quake or two on Thursday morning last. It would not be to the in- terest of the place to be left without one. It is seldom that the Reaper whose name is. Death "visits so many in such a short space of time as he did at Porthcawl last week. We had no fewer than four deaths, viz., a visitor's child, poor Thomas David, coal trimmer, Captain Benest's wife, who was called away quite suddenly after a brief and serious illness, and also Miss Pearce, a young lady of 24 years. She had been ailing for many a long day. The evening concerts among the visitors are pro- ductive of some good. It seems that about £6 were handed over to funds of the Rest" from one at Porthcawl Hotel. The religious fraternity seem to be bent upon making hay while the sun shines. Our friends the Congregationalists have their anniversary services, the Baptists a Welsh afternoon service, the Wes- leyans the Sunday school anniversary, and the Church their concerts, at which several prominent artistes take part. The Methodists have their special sermons also. The publicans had their great Bachanalian feast —viz., the regatta, which, for all good it does, can be termed an institution to help the poor publicans. It seems that some light-fingered gentlemen visited the place with the visitors to the regatta. Some lost purses with some little coin in them. I noticed the popular member of South Glamorgan, Mr. A. J. Williams, M.P., among the crowd with his two sons. The temperance people had a good meeting on Friday evening last. A young lady from Newport delivered a short address, and Dr. Williams spoke on alcohol and circulation, illustrating his remarks with some diagrams, The speakers had to com- pete with a Cheap Jack," who is possessed with Dowerful lungs. The place seems alive with all sorts and condi- ditions of men. Men with swing boats, shooting saloons, aunt Sallys, but no Punch and Judy. They are busily engaged in fitting up the new iron Church here just now. Pity they do not put up a more permanent structure. Some wicked Radical was saying that it is a sign of Dis- establishment. Well, perhaps so. The want of a public hall is seriously felt here. Why not make a move A movement is on foot to get up a brass band. A public hall could be made very attractive and accommodating for a very small outlay. The safety of Porthcawl is pro- verbial for bathing; out of the many thousands bathing here there have been no mishaps at all from clrowninc. SALINE.
BRYNDU AND CEFN COLLIERIES. DISCOVERY OF VALUABLE COAL. I On Tuesday evening, the 16th inst., at 7.30. the first sod of a new pit about to be sunk at this place was cut by Mr. G. Anderson, the newly-appointed manager, amidst considerable rejoicings. Amongst the number present who witnessed the occurrence was Mr. McEwen, Mr. Anderson, Mr. John Thomas, mechanic, the contractor's foreman, and others. The pit is situated about 30 yards distant from the Old Mill Balance Pit, which was worked about forty years ago by water power. The pit is about three miles distant from Pyle station, and is con- nected by a private branch railway, belonging to the proprietrix. Miss Talbot. The above collieries are situated within an easy run of the shipping ports of Porthcawl and Swansea, and the railway rates to them and to other docks at Cardiff and Barry are moderate, and the Great Western Rail- way gives access to all the inland markets to which the coal will be sent. The pit is to be sunk about 200 yards deep. A portable engine has already been fixed temporarily for winding pur- poses. It is stated that in the near future a large engine is to be erected, after which the shaft will be rapidly proceeded with. The fact of the coal in these collieries -being a first class house and manufacturing coal finds a ready sale, and is well known throughout the whole of the district. Connected with these collieries there are already 108 coke ovens and a coal washing machine. These ovens are capable of producing about 20,000 tons of Coke per annum made from the small coal now produced. The coke has proved itgelf equal, if not superior to, any other coke made in South Wales, its reputation being widely established. Both the coal and coke have always procured the best prices. It is also reported that the bituminous coal supply is becoming ex- hausted in other districts, and there can be no doubt that in future this class of coal must be obtained from the district in which these collieries are situated. Messrs. J. and W. Wood, the new company, are to be congratulated for their enter- prise, and we feel confident that they will now succeed. The rejoicing in the district is beyond description. Several hundreds have during the past week visited the place. The inhabitants have for a considerable time felt downcast at the gloomy outlook which has been foreshadowed, but a revival seems to have taken place. We shall probably at no distant date see many who are now labouring in other towns returning to their native place, being that such bright prospects seem in store for the district. Much praioe is also due to the officials of the company for their general ability in superintending the construction of the above works.

He did not know why they had not sent the money. "Catherine Thomas was picking coal up and putting it into her apron, and then into a bucket. When witness was talking to Haines, Thomas ran away, but Police-constable Harford ran after her and j brought her back.—Police-constable Hurford cor- roborated the evidence of the last witness. When he caught Thomas she made no reply to the charge of stealing the coal. which weighed 2Qlbs. and was worth a penny.

About 9 or 10 o'clock the same night she heard Mrs. Field calling to her to come out and she would rip her guts out.—Police-constable Samuel Smith said that on Monday night he cautioned defendant, and said that Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins had complained of her u*ing bad language and threats. He warned her to leave Mrs. Jenkins alone, but sha used threatening language after he had warned her.

IMPUDENT THEFT AT BRIDGEND.—Margaret Jane Cross (18), Oldcastle, Bridgend, and Elizabeth Ann Hughes (17). Newcastle, Bridgend, were charged with stealing a quantity of earthenware, cheese, sugar, and tea, the property of Mrs. Nicholls.—Bessie Rees, aged 17, 118, Nolton-street. Bridgend, said she was employed by Mrs. Nichols, who kept a refreshment room in the market. Pri- soners came into the market on Thursday after- noon at 4.30. Witness was engaered cleaning the floor of the refreshment room. Witness knew the defendants by sight, but she did not know their names. They cams together at the time mentioned. They did not say anything, but went straight to the cheese on the shelf and took it. Witness saw them and they never said anything to her. They took all the cheese that was left, weighing about 2 lbs. They divided it between each other with their hands and ate it. Witness told them to give it back. and they said" No. they wouldn't." They next took the sugar and tea. The sugar was in a paper on the shelf, and prisoners took all there was, about a pound. It was lump sugar. They put the suerar in the apron belonging to Elizabeth Hnghes. They both went out. and came back in less than five minutes. Witness sent a little girl up to Mrs. Nicholas, asking her to come down to the refreshment-room, and went on with her work. Prisoners returned and took some china. Witness saw them with it in their aprons, and asked them what they were doing with it, and they said. Its a piece of china." Witness identified the articles produced, four plates, a cup and saucer, two spoons, ,a glass, and some tea and sugar. Mr. Williams: The cheese is not there. Its gone. (Laughter.) Continuing, witness said that prisoners brought two little plates back afterwards. On Thursday evening a sister of the prisoner Cross was with them every time, but she did not do anything. She said, however, when they returned with the plates that she must not tell anything or the prisoner would beat her. Witness told Mrs. Nicholas about six o'clock of what had happened.—Margaret Nicholas. 118, Nolton-street.

Lizzie Hughes was with Cross at the time, but Cross had all the pots in her apron. Witness said she did not want them, and Cross put the pots in a basket, and said that she wanted a drink and asked witness to pay 3d. for them. Witness then gave her 3d. for them, and took the pots. Afterwards hearing that the two girls had been locked up she told the police that she had the pots and gave them to the police.—Police-constable R. Sloley said that last Thursday evening, from information received from Mrs, Nicholas, he arrested the two prisoners in Nolton-street about nine o'clock. He brought them to the police-station, and afterwards went" to Cross's lodgings, where he found two plates, two spoons, and some tea. He then went to Hughes' house, where he found the other two plates. He went to Mrs. Thomas' house and received the other articles produced. Mrs. Thomas said that Cross had asked for sixpence and she refused to pay it, and that Cross then pushed the things in her basket and said, Give us three- pence I want a —— drink." Witness brought the things to the station, showed them to the prisoners, and charged them both together with stealing them, and also with stealing some cheese which had not been recovered. In answer to the charge. Hughes said "I only took the two plates. It was Cross took the other things." Cross said. '■ I did not steal the tea, I bought it, but did the other things."—Prisoners were bound over in £5 each to be of good behaviour for six months, and to come up for judgment when called upon. BREACH OF COLLIERY RULES.—Daniel Lewis Griffiths, haulier, Maesteg, was summoned for com- mitting a breach of colliery rules.—Thomas Thomas, haulier at the Avon Colliery, said that defendant, on August .5, left the horse with three loaded trams on the main level, and did not tell anyone that he was going away. It was a dan- gerous practice leaving the horse and trams like that.—William Barnett, haulier, having given corroborative evidence, added that he took the trams to the end of their journey, and the horse to the stable.—Defendant stated that his object in leaving was to catch his train home.—Mr. Morris, manager of the colliery, said that it was a most dangerous practice, and said that during the last fife "weeks he had had three horses killed, which was no doubt due to similar practices. The gradient was one inch in twelve, and defen- dant did not sprag his trams at all, and Jie had »o doubt hut that for Barnett there would not only have been loss of horses lives but a loss of men's lives as well. Witness applied that an exemplary punishment might be imposed. All the hauliers were specially cautioned against such con- duct. Defendant would be earning about 30s. to 35s. a week. Defendant, for this and another breach of the rules, was fined £ 3—30s. in each case. DISORDERLY CONDUCT AT NANTYJIOEL.—Evan Oaks. James Hole, Thomas James. Thomas W oos- m;ui, and William John Jones, all of Nantymoel. hauliers, were charged with being drunk and dis- j orderly at Nantymoel on tlio 16th inst.—P.C. j Beynon stated that he warned the defendants once, and they separated. A little later he found them together,again, still creating a disturbance, and he then isent them ihome.—Defendants were each fined 15s. SPENDING SUNDAY AT BItIDGEXD. William Burke, labourer, Tondu. and Thomas Ronan. labourer. Tondu. were summoned for being drunk and behaving in an indecent manner in Park- street, Bridgend.—P.C. Thomas Brown stated that he saw defendants at 7.0 p.m. on Sunday drunk and committing a nuisance in Park-street. There were a lot of people about, and the officer toid them to go home. Instead of doing so. they became very abusive, and the officer then took them into cus- tody, their journey to the cells attracting a large amount of attention, a large number of people being about.—Defendants were each fined 15s. ASSAULTING LADIES AT BIUDGEND. — Henry Summers, labourer. Park-street, Bridgend, was charged on remand with assaulting Miss David, of Watertown.—Complainant stated that the evidence she gave at the first hearing was true, and she had nothing to add to it.—The evidence of Thomas Lewis Roberts, as reported in the S TAR last week, was read over, witness adding that he had not seen any other man between where he met prisoner and where he saw Miss David. Police-constable Thomas Brown stated that from information received he arrested the prisoner about 9.30 p.m. last Sunday, on the Ewenny-road. He charged him on suspicion with attempting to com- mit an indecent assault upon Miss David on the night of the 7th. In answer to the charge prisoner said I am not the man. V» itness then took him to the station, and all the way he per- sisted in saying that he was not the man. Near the station he resisted very much, but witness got him into the station. On the following morning prisoner confessed, and said that he hoped Miss David would forgive him.—Prisoner did not ask any questions. Prisoner was then charged with assaulting Miss Sarah Rhoda Jenkins on July 31st oa the Ewenny- road. Bridgend. Prisoner said I know nothing of this charge. Complainant said she was a dressmaker, and lived at Ewenny. She saw prisoner on the 31st July on the Ewenny-road about 9.15 p.m. It was on Sunday evening, and she was going home. Complainant was with her cousin—a lady—and they overtook prisoner, who said good night.' She answered him. They walked on. and he overtook them about ten minutes walk from where they had first seen him. He said it was a nice evening, and witness said it was, and they turned in to the Uchelolau gate. He asked them how long were they going to be, and she told him that they were not going any further. Prisoner then caught hold of her. and he roughed' her about. He never said a word. She screamed and struggled, and got loose. She then ran up to the house, and the servant man went with them. The prisoner had gone, and they did not see hUll again. She identified the prisoner as being the man by his cloches for one thing. She had not the slightest doubt about it. She identified him by having a dark moustache, and he walked awkwardly like the prisoner.—Prisoner '• You've made a mistake. You've got the wrong man."—Complainant said that when she told prisoner at the police-station that he was the man, he made no reply. Prisoner was then remanded in custody until Saturday next, bail being refused.
BRIDitEND county COURT. FRIDAY.—Before His Honour. Judge Gwilvm Williams. COLES Y. THE LLEST COLLIERY Co. — His Honour gave judgment in the above case, heard at the last court, which involved points of general interest to all interested in collieries. His Honour now read his judgment, and said the action would involve questions of considerable importance as affecting the relative rights of employers and workmen in collieries. Coles, the plaintiff, was employed as a collier by the defendant company, and sent up dirty coal. His attention was called to it, and he agreed to be cropped, but the manager refused adopt that course, and dismissed him sum- marily, acting under a supposed right conferred by a clause (19) in a document called" list of prices agreed to be paid at Llest Colliery." Plain- tiff therefore claimed consideration for coal and damages for the alleged refusal to pay him the wages which he had earned. As to the first item in the claim, it was clear that plaintiff was entitled to some consideration from the defendants, as by their particulars they admitted that he was en- titled to Is. 2d. As to the second item, the evi- dence as to refusal to pay the wages was very un- satisfactory. but on the whole he was inclined to believe the evidence of the defendants, and, there- fore. found for them on that point. The important question that seemed to be raised in the action was the right of defendants to summarily dismiss plain- tiff and whether the so-called "list of prices "formed part of the contract entered into by the parties by that action. His Honour was of opinion that it was outside the contract, and was. therefore, in- operative. The defendants were, therefore, acting beyond their legal right when they dismissed the plaintiff without notice, for it was competent for them to frame rules which were in contravention of the statute. If, therefore, the plaintiff had claimed damages for breach of contract he would of necessity have succeeded. He. however, had not brought his action in that form. and would not, therefore, be entitled to any sum for damages, He was, however, entitled to a sum in respect of the first item of his claim which he found it very difficult to asses, but which he assessed at 12s. Judgment was-therefore for plaintiff for 12s. His Honour could not entertain the defendant's counter-claim for there was no evidence of the existence of any scale of deductions in respect of 3tones or other substances other than the mineral contracted to be gotten sent up by the plaintiff.— Mr. T. J. Hughes, for the plaintiff, applied for costs which were allowed on the scale between JE10 and £ 20.—Mr. S. H. Stockwood asked for costs on the counter-claim, and for leave to appeal the application being granted. IMPORTANT HINT TO TRADESMEN.—During the hearing of a case for gocds sold and delivered his Honour said I wish I could impress upon trades- men in this district the necessity of having the pass-books written up to date always. It would much simplify matters. They should treat their customers as the banks treat us, and insist upon the pass-book always being brought. That is the thing, and then the pass-book would be evidence at once, then there would be no question about it. WEARING HATS IN COURT.—Observing a young man in court wearing his hat, his Honour ordered him to remove it at once, and remarked that any- one wearing his hat in court at once showed his ill-breeding. ACTION AGAINST THE GREAT WESTERN- RAILWAY.—The Pencoed and Dinas Brick and Tile Company sued the Great Western Railway for a5 4s. 6d. for damages to tiles in transit. Mr. S. H. Stockwood appeared for plaintiffs, and Mr. W. Robinson Smith appeared for the company.—Mr. B. Shephard, Penarth, said he was the consignee of five coping blocks. When he saw them in the trucks several were broken. He saw the truck brought in, but did not see anything particular about the manner of thie shunting. When he com- plained to Mr. Rees. the manager of the Goods Department at Barry Station, about the condition of the coping blocks, that gentleman agreed with him in the opinion that the goods could not have been broken without some reckless shunting.—His Honour decided in favour of defendants, and stated that before plaintiffs could recover from the railway company they must prove specific acts of negligence. A PROPERTY CASE.—David Phillips and his wife, Louisa, sought to obtain possession of two cottages in Nolton-road, Bridgend. The defendants, David Phillips and Arthur Phillips, were represented by Mr. David Lewis (instructed by Mr. T. J. Hughes) and Mr. Frank Williams held a watching brief on behalf of Joseph Phillips. The plaintiffs were represented by Mr. A. K. Corrie (instructed by Messrs. Scale and David). It was explained that the case had been sent down by the High Court to determine the ownership of the two cottages in question, and after a lengthy hearing, His Honour gave judg- ment for the plaintiffs. 0 BREACH OF APPRENTICESHIP INDENTURES.— Mr. C. Edwards, draper, Bridgend. who had claimed j625 as damages from William Farley, gardener, for breach of indenture. Defendant's daughter was apprenticed to the plaintiff for three years to learn drapery, or the art of drapery." It ap- peared that defendant's daughter had left her situation at the end of two years on the ground that she had to go errands, nurse the baby, and do ather work not connected with the drapery busi- ness.—His Honour, however, gave judgment for bhe plaintiff for £ 15 and costs
THE FATAL QUARREL AT MAESTEG. FURTHER PROCEEDINGS. PRISONER COMMITTED FOR MAN- SLAUGHTER. James Price, mason. 46, Alma-road. Maesteg. was charged on remand with the wilful murder of John Davies, mason. 10, Company-row, Maesteg. fhe Court was crowded. Mr. Charles, solicitor. Neath, prosecuted on behalf of the Crown, and Mr. R. Scale (Scale and David), solicitors Bridgend. defended.—Mr. Superintendent Thomas. watched the case on behalf of the police. Mr. Charles, in stating the case, gave a narrative af the circumstances by which deceased met his leath (a full report of which we gave last week). md said that it was for the Bench to commit him for trial, either for murder or manslaughter. He thought it only-fair to state that prisoner already stood committed for trial upon the Coroner's warrant for manslaughter. There could be no loubt, as the magistrates would see after hearing jhe evidence of the doctor, that deceased's death was caused by the injuries inflicted upon him by prisoner. The following witnesses were then sailed :— John Vincent, mason's labourer. 10. Company- row. Maesteg, said that on Tuesday, August 9th, he was at work on some new houses .in Bethania- street, Maesteg, with the prisoner and John Davies. The latter had been working a few hours m Monday, and started at 11 o'clock on the Tues- lay. Monday was the first day he had worked :here. Davies asked Price for sixpence to get some drink. Price gave him a shilling. Davies md witness then went to the Royal Oak public- house where they had two pints of beer each. Witness and deceased stayed away a few minutes jver the half hour, when they got back Davies went up the ladder 10 his work. Davies was working on the scaffold at the farthest corner. Price was on the scaffold. Witness did not hear my words pass between them as he was too low lown. He heard something, but could not say what it was. He saw Price jump from the scaffold on to the joist, and hold his hand towards leceased in a threatening manner. Price was "hen about a yard away from Davies. Witness was called by Charles Sutcliffe, and went up the ladder. He did not notice prisoner strike Davies. When witness got up the ladder he saw the deceased lying on the joist on his side and hands on some boards placed over the posts. Deceased was bleeding from his cheek and lip. Price was standing over deceased, and said If vron don't get up. I will kick you up." Witness then took deceased's handkerchief and wiped his lips and face. Witness stayed there five or six minutes, but did not see anything more happen between Price and deceased. He then re- turned to his work down the ladder, leaving Davies on his side, looking as if he was dropped off to sleep. Price went oack to the scaffold. Witness, when he first got up che ladder, went be- tween prisoner and deceased, and noticed that the latter was a little gone in drink. Price was sober. Witness saw the boardson the joist, and there were no stones or anything else on them. Davies re- mained there for an hour and a quarter, when he descended the ladder without assistance. Witness saw deceased sit down on the ashes waitiing for his sub., which he got and went away.—By Mr. Scale Davies did not make any cotnplaint of being hurt. and witness did not know that he had been hurt only on the face. He walked down the ladder and away, and did not appear to be lame. Deceased seemed to have the shakes. Witness did not see any biwod on his trousers then, although he was close to him. After deceased came down the ladder deceased and prisoner had a few words in Welsh in a friendly away. Price had come down the ladder first. Deceased and Price went away together, and witness was in the Royal Oak subse- quently with them. They were quite friendly. That would be about an hour and a half after the row. It was shortly after four when he went up the ladder. Others were also present with them in the public house. In the public Price had a glass of whiskey, and deceased and witness had a pint each, each man paying for their own drink. Witness saw deceased and prisoner shake hands in the Royal Oak, but as the conversation was in Welsh he could not say what words passed at the time of shaking hands. They left the public- house, and there was nothing then to show that Davies was in any way hurt except about the face. Witness did not know of any unpleasantness hav- ing existed between deceased and prisoner before. So far as he knew, they had always been friendly. Charles Sutcliffe, mason. Temple-street, Maesteg, said that he was working at Bethania-street, Maes- :eg, with the last witness. Price, and deceased. He remembered Davies and Vincent going away ibout three o'clock in the afternoon to get some beer. They were away about three-quarters of an lour. AVitness saw them return. At the time Price was on the scaffold, and Davies got on the joists. The scaffolding was 3ft. 6in. above the joists. When Davies came up Price said, This is l long half hour that you have been away." Davies said to Price," You're a liar. We have only Deen away the bare half hour." "You're not much )f a principle to take advantage of men while :hey're away." Davies then said, I have as good t principle, and am as good a man as you." That was said in English, and they then began talking n Welsh. Price jumped down to the joists and lit Davies two or three times about the face. Davies fell down on the joists upon the boards. Witness went on with his work. He heard Davies •ay, Price, you won't hit me where I am And jhen witness turned round and saw Price hit Davies on the ground. Price said before hitting Davies, You get up and I will fight you like a nan." Davies was lying on his right side with its hands covering his face. Witness said to Price ivhen he saw him hitting Davies while he was on ;he ground, "Less of that, Price, or else I shall nterfere." Witness was then standing on the scaffolding, and called Vincent up. When Vincent ;ame up he went down on to the joists. Witness icard Price say something in Welsh, and Vincent laid, X O. you won't touch him (Davies) not while ['m here." Witness asked Price to go back to his .vork and settle with Davies when he (Davies) was .(\ber. Davies lay on the joists apparently sleeping mtil about a quarter past five. Davies did not itrike Price, and did not try to defend himself at ill. If Davies had struck "Price he would have :een it. When Davies fell he fell on his right side mt not heavily. He fell on the clean boards.—By VIr. Scale Both prisoner and deceased were strangers to him. but so far as he knew they were friendly. When deceased said to Price, You're a iar," he appeared to be in a temper, and said it in in impudent manner. When they were talking in Welsh they seemed to fee quarreling, and Davies :eemed to be speaking in an offensive manner. rVitness saw Davies go down the ladder, which he lid as if nothing had happened. Witness was vorking then about 16 feet from deceased, and did lot see any blood on his trousers. The master George Daniels) asked Davies what was the natter, and he said. Oh, Price has been showing ne up." When that happened at four o'clock, 3rice was in charge whilst Daniels was away, md Vincent said to Price that he vould not pick Davies up while he was there. The nen were talking in Welsh.—By the Chairman When Davies called Price a liar Price got into a ;emper.—By the Clerk The foreman asked de- based what was the mattei because he saw the narks on his face. Andrew McCarthy. 10. Company-row, Maesteg. nason's labourer, said that last Tuesday week in ;he afternoon he went to Bethania-street, to see leceased. It was 5.O when I got there. He 'ound deceased on a joist sleeping. Witness awoke lim. and deceased went down the ladder first, .vitness following. When they got to the foot of ;he ladder they both sat down on the ashes. Wit- less had some talk with Davies, who made a com- plaint. Deceased said he felt all over shivers, and lad been kicked. Mr. Charles Don't tell us what he said. Witness I will tell you the truth. Mr. Charles Don't tell us what he said. Witness I will tell you what you like. (Laugh- ;er.) I will speak the truth. Witness, continuing, said that he, in company with deceased, Price, and Vincent, went to the Royal Oak. Witness and deceased had two pints )f beer each. He heard Davies tell Price to shake lands, and that they must be friends again. They ;hen shook hands. Witness and Davies went from ihe house together, arriving at their lodgings at >even o'clock. Davies was in the house about half m hour, and then went to the closet. During the lalf hour he was sitting in a chair, and was going :o have something to eat. Whilst deceased was in jhe closet witness went out. Witness was then jailed back again, and found Davies in bed. Wit- less then went for Police-sergeant Hill, who ro- amed with him. By Mr. Scale They left the Royal Oak about 6.45 p.m. Witness saw the marks )11. decased's trousers when they got to their lodg- ngs. Dr. Thos. Wm. Clay, physician and surgeon, Maesteg, said that on Tuesday, August 9th, he was ;alled in about 11 o'clock in the evening to see John Davies. whom he found at 10, Company-row, )n some bedding that had been made up upstairs )n the floor. He seemed to be sober. Witness :'ound two slight abrasions on his face, one on the eft cheek bone and the other on the forehead. The ibrasions had stopped bleeding. Deceased com- jlained of feeling pain in the private parts, and of his inability to void his urine. There was a lot of blood on his clothing. Witness then detailed the other injuries, as reported in last week's SOUTH WALES STAR. Death ensued about 4.30 on Friday morning. The same after afternoon witness made a post-mortem examina- tion. and described the nature of the injuries. Death was caused chiefly by the injury to the urethra, but the shock caused by the other injuries also contributed to death. The shock was followed on the third day by alcoholic delirium during which the man died from syncope, accelerated by loss of blood. The injury to the urethra could not have been caused by a fall on the boards on the joist. It might have been caused by a fall with legs astride. It might have been caused by a kick, but it was hardly possible to cause it by a blow with the fist. j Ann O'Leary. 10. Company-row, Maesteg. gave evidence similar to that given by her at the inquest, a report of which appeared in last week's STAR.— By Mr. Scale She did not take any notice as to whether deceased was drunk. It was the first night that he had stayed at her house. Police-sergeant Hill said that the evidence given by him at the previous hearing was correct. Mr. Scale having intimated that he did not then intend to call witnesses, prisoner was committed to the assizes. Mr. Scale applied for bail, which was granted—the prisoner in £100, and two sureties of £:50 each.
REVOLTING CHARGE AGAINST A BROTHER. At the Bridgend Police Court, on Saturday. Wm. Price (19), haulier, Llancarvan. was charged on remand with having carnal knowledge of his sister, Elizabeth Ann Price (15), of Llancarvan. Complainant said that she was 15 years old in July. Defcndant was her brother. Their father was m. Price, of Llanearvan, who was a haulier. She and defendant had been living with their fatheruntillately. There were three other chil- dren living at home. She had two sisters, the elder being 11 years of age, and a brother aú home. Her mother was dead. She used to do the household work at home. She was now in the familv-way. and the time was nearly up. Her brother had been intimate with her and nobody else. The intimacy commenced last December in the house at home in bed. They did not sleep in the same room. There were five bedrooms in the house. She did not com- plain of him to anybody. The last occasion when he had intimacy was in January.—In answer to the Clerk, witness admitted that she had said that the intimacy was continued over a much longer period than that. She left her home at Llancarvan a month ago because of her condition, and went to live with her aunt at Maesteg. She did not tell anybody that she was going to Maesteg, and did not tell her brother. Her father took her up to Maesteg. She told her father of her condition. Her father first spoke to her of it when he took her up to Maesteg. She had been examined by a doctor the day before leaving home. Her sister accompanied her to Dr. Treharne. It was her married sister, Sarah Jane Thomas, wife of Thos. Thomas, carpenter, Cadoxton, who wished her to go to the doctor. She had not told her sister of her condition because she did not know it. Witness here broke down crying, and for a time the case was delayed. Ultimately, she said that the doctor told her that she was in the family way. She told Mrs. Sarah Jane Thomas, her married sister, of her condition after she had been with the doctor and before leaving.—Police- sergeant William Jones Canton, St. Nicholas, stated that he had known the father of the parties for three or four months, but did not know" either prisoner or the girl until a week ago. On Monday last. about 5.30 o'clock, he arrested prisoner under a warrant near his father's residence at Llanearvan. He told him that he was charged with unlawfully having carnal knowledge with his sister Susannah, under 16 years of age. Witness also added that his sister was supposed to be in the family way. He said Yes. It's Elizabeth Ann you mean, not Susannah." Witness then took him to the St. Nicholas Police-station, and the following day he was taken to Bridgend. On Thursday last witness obtained a certificate of the birth of Elizabeth Ann Price, which stated that she was born on the 25th of July, 1877.—Police-sergeant Row said that his evidence at the first hearing was correct. Prisoner was then committed for trial at the Assizes, an application for bail being refused. A LOXG SITTING.—The sitting of the court lasted until after six o'clock—the business thus taking over six hours to dispose of. 4-

TONDU FOOTBALL CLUB. A SATISFACTORY REPORT. The annual meeting of the Tondu Football Club was held in the Reading-room, Aberkenfig, on Monday evening. Mr. George Richmond presided. There was a large attendance. Mr. E. Hopkins, secretary, expressed his pleasure at seeing so many present, and stated that the receipts for the last season were £37 4s. 6d. The payments totalled £ 30 5s. 2d., leaving a balance in hand of Z6 19s. 4d. (Applause.) The payments included £ 10 for the field, and C 7 for train fares for the first fifteen. The club had also paid a subscription of X2 2s. to the Welsh Rugby Union, and £ 1 Is. to the County Football Club. They had played 20 matches, of which 14 were won, four lost, and two drawn. (Cheers.) He considered that very satisfactory, seeing they had played teams last season far superior to any previously played. (Hear, hear.) They had played Ilorristoii-olie of the most rising teams in South Wales—and were beaten away by a goal and a try to one goal. At home, however, there was only one minor scored throughout the game. They had beaten Cardiff District and Peuarth College—the latter by 7 goals 2 tries to nil. The total number of points scored by Tondu during the season was 172, as compared with 40 points scored by their opponents. That gave a majority for Tondu of 132 points. (Ap- plause.) Tondu had scored 25 goals, 27 tries, and 80 minors. Their opponents had scored 4 goals. 10 tries, and 14 minors. As regarded next season he thought that some of the old First XV. would have to make way for some members of last year's Second XV. He was glad to say that Mr. Williams, of Penarth, was going to assist them again next season. (Applause.) Mr. Thomas Rees was elected captain, Mr. John Murphy vice-captain, Mr. James Cooke treasurer, and Mr. F. Iiutchiugs secretary. Referring to his resignati-on of the secretaryship Mr. E. Hopkins said that after se\en years' service he felt bound to make way for someone else. Upon the motion oi Mr. W. T. Jones, seconded by Mr. H. Hurley, a cordial vote of thanks was passed to Mr. Hopkins for the very great services which he had rendered to the club. Messrs. W. M. Rees. E. Hopkins, William Hurley. William Hopkins, E. Rees. C. P. Puffet, and George Richmond were nominated for the committee.—Mr. Jones urged that they ought to appoint playing members on the GeneralCommittee and non-playing members of the Match Committee. He proposed as an amendment that Messrs. John Major and John Johns be on the committee in- stead of Messrs. Puffett 'and Richmond. The amendment having been seconded, it was put to the meeting but only three voting in its favour, the gentlemen whose names are given above were elected as the committee. The following were elected Match Committee — Messrs. W. Rees. James Cooke, W. Thomas, D. Powell, and E. Rees. Mr. D. Johns was re-elected captain of the second team. D. Daniel being selected as vice-captain. It was decided to try for the same field as last season. The Golden Lion was selected as the headquarters of the club, and the meeting ended with a vote of thanks to the chairman for pre- siding.
A NOTABLE SERMON AT PORTHCAWL. The Rev. Thomas Davies, Treorky, preached a special sermon on Thursday evening last at the Calvinistic Methodist Chapel. He based his re- marks upon the presence of Christ at the wedding at Cana. He thought we ought to call Christ into our concerns, into our play, to our sorrow and griefs. He (the preacher) was gladdened when he read and thought of Christ at the wedding. At the first blush one would think that he (the Saviour) was not in his place at the wedding feast, but it proved that Christ sympathised with man in his various conditions. When Christ comes to the wedding he will modify our outbursts of gladness, and bring us to a natural state of mind. Some people thought that a religious man was to with- draw himself from the world, and live as if in seclusion. Such an idea was a wrong. Christ was strong enough to live in the world without being of the world. The fathers preached and tauarht, seclusion from the world to such an extent that their successors became a weakly, puny set, easily contaminated by sin. Better be made strong and have influence over men for their advancement by honest and pure lives. We should call Christ into our concerns, because He is a Saviour not of souls only but also of other things, and of our circum- stances. He has come to be a whole Saviour. We should call Him in because He saves our property. Christ lived among men, and was a busy man, a full all-round man. He was a worker, and worked about the country of Palestine. He worked as a carpenter. He (the preacher) was much struck by the questions of the immortal Williams of Pontyclown, when he wanted to know if the nail prints were still in His hands and in his feet: but he thought that the scars upon the hands of the Saviour were fully as honourable as the prints of the nails in His hands and His feet. Christ was a busy man, and no one need be ashamed of honest labour, because the Saviour sanctified labour by labouring Himself. This was an age cf play. God, he thought, liked to see the young play, because he had endowed the young with so much life but it was not natural to see an old man playing. He was not certain whether one played too much or not: but if we invited Christ to our play. He would, by His presence, make play what it should be. He would not per- mit young persons to play when they should be doing something else. In Christ we had One: who would bring our lives into uniformity with His own. )
To JNVESTORS. TTESLY AND CO., gTOCK AND SHARE JJROKERS. ST- s TEPHEN'S CHAMBERS, rpELEGRAPH STREET, j^ondon, li!a wE have the pleasure of calling atten- 7 T tion to our" Fortnightly Syndicates" (Limited), for dealing in Stocks and Shares on the Combination System, and which, since their inaugura- tion last year, have proved a source of considerable profit to our regular Subscribers. Departing from the ordinary method invariably adopted by the Syndicate Agents, we find it more con- ducive to business, and much more satisfactory to Subscribers, to afford them all, and every information as to the extent of the respective Syndicates, and the amount of Stock dealt in, reserving to ourselves the privilege selecting, as occasion may otIer, the Stocks to be operated in, and of closing the same at such moment as our judgment may suggest; to be the most opportune for securing profits. We would point out that we have no fixed price for Syndicate Shares, inasmuch as each Syndicate is com- v posed of varying subscriptions; the Subscribers thiw occupy the same relative position, as profits are divided in proportion to the sums individually invested, our own charge of one-eight commission on Stocks opened being first deducted. .y ii, Our Syndicates are formed on the 1st and 15th of each month, in subscriptions of from E2 to £ 50, the minimum sum affording clients the opportunity of testing our system with a very moderate outlay. A Syndicate once formed, we lose no time in opera- ting and immediately advise each Subscriber of the current amount being dealt with, and the actual quantity of Stock opened, thus approximating to each. Member the exact amount of Stock covered by his subscription, and on which his profits are calculated, no Subscriber being, in any case, liable for more than the sum he actually subscribes. Each Syndicate rarely extends over more than a. week or ten days, thus avoiding carrying over ex- penses, which can only accrue in the event of a Syndi cate being exceptionally kept open for any special reasons. On the closing of Stocks, Subseibers receive due notification, and cheques are promptly dispatched to each for his promfa shire of profits added to the amount of his orignal subscription. So far we have no reason to be dissatisfied with the result of our operations, seventeen out of nineteen Syndicates having realised handsome returns equal to- nett a average profit of over 50 per cent. for each Syndicate, and viewing the difficulty attendant on successful Stock Exchange speculation, these results are, we consider, highly satisfactory. W ode not attempt to emulate various advertising Syndicate agents in making impossible profits out of abnormally small sums, nor do we subscribe to the equally absurd proposition of guaranteeing clients against loss. We bring to bear on our business, upwards of ten years practical experience of the Stock Markets, and we do our best to further our Clients interests. The Syndicate operations are always protected by a fair margin, and while we are content with reasonable profits, in the event of adverse market movements, losses are curtailed as far as possible. Trusting that a perusal of our letter will lead to your joining our list of Subscribers, L ESL Y AND Co., April, 1892. r990 ÐH. Joseph pARRY'S "lyjUSICAL COMPOSITIONS.
