PONTYPRIDD PETTY SESSIONS. WEDNESDAY. —(Before E. Williams, and W. H. Pricluird, Esquires.) The number of cases on the charge sheet was singularly few, and of these the following only are of public interest :— WAGES CASE.—John Edwards summoned J. Walters, overman in the Ferndale Colliery, for wages for four dAys, amounting to 12s 8d. Mr Price, who defended, took an objection to the status of his client as a defendant in the action Mr Davis, the proprietor, or Mr Bedlington, the responsible master, should have been summoned The overman has nothing whatever to do with paying the men. This plea however, was withdrawn, and the case was pro- ceeded with on its merits. It appeared that complainant worked night-work four nights in succession since the last pay on the 28th ult. Walters told him he never would pay him. Complainant left work on the following Tuesday morninf no one told him to leave. A notice had been o-iven for an advance of wages it expired on the 24th ult. He worked afterwards. Defendant did not say that he would not pay him unless he worked out his months notice The notice, however, was received by the pro- prietors on the 1st of March, so that it could not have expired before the 28th. The affair it seems arose out of a misapprehension on the part of the complainant. De- fendant offered to take him back to work on the remaining part of his notice.-The case w&s dismissed.
