THE CHARGES AGAINST PUBLICANS. -+- WITHDRAWAL OF CASKS AT PENARTH. FRESH SUMMONSES ISSUED. At Penarth Police-court on Monday (before Mr. F. Gore. Major Thornley. and Mr. Lie well in Wood), Mr. Vachell (Ingledew. Incc. and Vachell, Cardiff) drew attention to a summons which had been issued against James Greatrex, landlord of the Cross Keys Inn, Dinas Powis. The prosecution, he had just been informed, were not prepared to proceed with the case, evidently as-the result of the dismissal of similar charges which had been heard at Bridgend and Llandaff. He was prepared to proceed with the case that day, and had Pro- fessor Attfield and other scientific witnesses pre- sent from London.—Mr. Superintendent Wake said fresh summonses had been issued against the defendant.—Mr. Vachell: Then I ask that the first summons be dismissed with costs. It is not fair to deal with the defendant in this way. and I think it is only fair that the circumstances should now be explained to the bench after the observation of Mr. Wake. The first summons was issued for that the de- fendant adulterated or diluted a certain quantity of beer. This they could not possibly prove, and now a fresh summons is issued for a totally different offence, namely, that he sold to the prejudice of Inspector Thomas King, the prosecutor, a certain quantity of food, namely, beer. The second charge was brought under the Food and Drugs Act. but the first charge was brought under the Inland Revenue Act. I must, therefore, ask that the first summons be dismissed with costs.—Mr. Wake I thought the first summons was adjourned till next month.—Mr. Vachell Then you ought to be care- ful, Mr. Wake.—The Bench said the first summons would be withdrawn with costs.—Mr. Vachell Then the police will withdraw the second sum- mons aa well. I suppose.'—Mr. Wake Oh. no. I cannot do that without permission.—Mr. T. H. Belcher, solicitor, Cardiff, then brought forward the case of Mrs. Jane David. Albion Hotel. Penarth. for whom he appeared in answer to a similar charge as in the first case referred to by Mr. Vachell. and be asked for a dismissal on the same ground.—It was decided to allow the prosecution to withdraw the summons with costs.—Mr. Wake explained that a second summons had been issued on Saturday against Mrs. David, returnable for Monday next.—Mr. Belcher said he would not be prepared with scientific evidence for some time, and asked that the case be heard that day month. -It was, therefore, decided to hear both cases that day month. FURTHER CASES ADJOURNED. Similar first summonses were withdrawn against Mr. B. Hoddinott. Witchill Motel, and Mr. F. C. Williams. Royal Hotel, both of Cadoxton. and. on the application of Mr. Liywaroh Reynolds. B.A.. solicitor. Merthyr. the hearing of the second sum- monses were adjourned for a month.
