Penarth, was charged with selling' bread otherwise than by weight. P.C. William Abrahams deposed on the 16th ultimo he visited defendant's premises in Arcott- street, and purchased a quartern loaf. Defendant did,not weigh the bread, and witness gave 4M for it. He then told defendant he intended weighing ii. Witness did so, and found it 2oz. short. Mr David, for the defense denied the offence, and said that the bread was weighed. To substantiate this statement he called Charles Hayter, son or the defendant, who swore that his father weighed the bread before he delivered it to the constabie. The case was dismissed. George John, of Dinas Powis, baker. was charged with selling bread otherwise than by weight on the 16thult. Fined 5s. Henry Jenkins, Penarth, for a similar offence, was fined 53., as was also William 1-Iayton and Henry Adam a; Thomas Walker was charged with a like offence. Mr. Belcher defended, and contended that the bread was fancy bread. Police-constable Richard Henry Thomas proved the case. Mr. Belcher said he designated it fancy bread because it was dearer, for its shape, and because of its special manufacture. For example Mr. Belcher quoted the case of Regina r. Wood. The Chairman of the Bench (Mr. O. H.Jones) thought the crn.v-oi the matter was whether the bread had been asked for by weighs by the con- stable asking for a half-quartern loaf. After a consultation, the Bench decided that when asked for a hair-quartern loaf the seller should weigh it; but as there were special circum- stances in the case the Bench would dismiss it with1 a caution.
