SEBIOUS CHARGE AGAINST A BARRY. DOCK BOARDING- HOUSE KEEPER. At the Penarth Police-court on Monday, before Mr. Gore (in the chair) and Mr. Thompson, Lewis Gou Ie,boarding-house keeper,of Regent-street,Barry Dock (for whom Mr. J. H. Jones. Cardiff, appeared), was charged with unlawfully wounding Morris Haines (sailor, of Merthyrdovan,) on the 26th inst. —Prosecutor resided at Holme-street, Cadoxton, and on the 26th inst. he stayed at 13, Regent- street, Barry Dock, which house was kept by prisoner. It was a boarding-house. On the Friday night, at five past eleven, he was sitting in the kitchen, and prisoner came to him about two or three minutes after he came in. He asked him what he had been growling about his note for,and witness replied that, in the first place, he had charged him 16s. for a week's board, and he had only been four days in his house. He had given defendant his advance note for :1.:2, and he only gave him back 6s. He said What"' first, and then called him a b swine," and struck nim in the right eye with his fist. Witness was sitting down at the time. There was another man in the kitchen aud defendant's wife. He said You are no man, Mr. Goule, to do that." He moved towards the fender then and picked a poker up, and caught hold of it in his two hands and said, I will kill the likes of you," and then struck him on the head with the poker. He was still sitting down. His head bled freely, and he had felt ill ever since. He went to the doctor next day. The poker with which he was struck, a very heavy one, was identi- fied by witness. The defendant appeared to have had plenty of drink. He told defendant he hadn't done it for nothing, and, whilst the blood was in his eyes, Geule struck him on the left side of his face with his fist. Before he struck him with his fist, he asked defendant to let him ero out to see a doctor, and he replied he should not go out until he went on board the ship. He heard the front door being locked, and he attempted to go out the back door, but he couldn't find the bolt. He saw Dr. Livingstone next day. He went to join his ship the next day before he saw the doctor, but the captain refused to take him in consequence of his wounds. He saw defendant the next day, and he told wit- ness he was sorry for having done what he had done to him. After going on the ship he went to the doctor, and also gave information to the police, and defendant was arrested. He went to the doctor about 10.30, as he had first to see the Board of Trade officers.—Thomas Smith, a fellow lodger, a seaman, also a runner for the prisoner, said that on the 26th inst. he went into the kitchen and saw Haines there sitting on a chair. He noticed that the blood was flowing from his head. He washed the blood away. and saw a little cut there. He saw Goule afterwards, but he was not in the kitchen when he went it. Goule did not appear as if he had been drinking when he saw him, but looked quite sober. After he washed prosecutor's head he put something on his head, and led him up and put him to bed. The man appeared to be drunk as his breath smelt of liquor. He could not say that it was owing to the effect of the blow that he could not walk up without assistance.—Mr. i Jones asked that he might reserve his examina- tion of the witnesses, as he had only been instructed that morning and this was a very serious affair.— Dr. J. Livingstone, doctor of medicine, resident at Barry Dock, said on the 27th inst. he examined the complainant at his suigery. He found a con- siderable amount of clotted blood in his hair. He removed part of the hair, and found a cut on his head from about 2 to 2] inches in length. The bone of the skull was exposed at the middle of the wound. He put one stitch in the cut, which was not of a dangerous character. The man had two black eyes. He found the stains on the poker to be recent bloodstains.—In cross-examination by the Magistrates' Clerk, the prosecutor said the man who was in the room when he was struck was named Simmonds. He was sober at the time defendant struck hirn. The prisoner's wife was also in the room. He had been drinking that day, but not to any extent. He had been in two public- houses that evening. The defendant's wife left the room. and said, For God's sake let the man I alone."—Mr. Jones asked for a remand. The defendant, he said, was a householder of Barry, "*nd respectable sureties were willing to become bail lor his appearance.—The Bench granted a remand for a week. bail being allowed, himself in £50 and two sureties in £50 each.—Mr. James Harrison, secretary of the Seamen's Union, and Mr. J. Scrubizza became sureties. _u
