LLANiDLOES. J THE WESLEIAN BAZAAR.—The proceedings at this bazaar were continued en Tuesday, ^ov^inber 23rd, when Mr J. Jenkins, Pen y Green, opened them, and congratu- lated the trustees on having built such a noble place of wor- ship. The bazaar both on Monday and Tuesday was pat- ionized by the respectable families contacted with the church aiid the ^esleyaas in th-i county pliic.ra circuit, and the committee expressed their gratitude to their country friends, and especially to the vicar of Lianidloes, and the church friends generally, for their liberal and cheerful support and patronage. Mr Alfred Williams, of Greenfield Villa, Van, took a very active part in connection with the bazaar, attended several of the committees, and defrayed the expenses connected with the dissolving views on Mondav evening, for which service and liberality he re- ceived the thanks of the committee. The views were very good. The same apparatus was hired by the corn mitteetur Taesdav evening, but the hall became so very crowded that it was "impossible to exhibit them. All the^ articles were sold. The receipts of Monday were £ 10o > total sum realized, £ 150 which sum exceeded -e iauguine hopes of the committee. COU.NTY COU itT.-BefL)re Judge Homesham Cox. Extraordinary Charge of Assault.—V avid Ja.mau, a farmer at Gtmbidno sued Evan -Jones, the father, ,i_,cl E. m Jones, the son f'-me-s and cattle dealers, Gianbidno. Llangurist, to re- cover £ 5 forailegsd dafliasre inflicted on plamtiil by defendants. —Mr John Jenkins was for t plamtiii and Mr Bishop, of Brecon, instructed by Heasra W osn and Talbot, was for the defence.—David Jarinan, Lie p^ainut:, 3alfi-1 nm the owner of d the farm at which I live. There is a footpath through two of the fields but no one has any right to take cattle, sheep, horses, or cart" without leave. Oa the Sth cf October the defendants passed through these fields, driving- cat,, 1, and a horse. I turned toward.s tlw defendants, and told them that there was no road for cattie that w-y, --z-d th-jy said they would go without leave. Evan Jones, tha younger, 'rove the cattle uo to a wicket. Before the elder der'eudsnt and myself had got up to the wicket, the vounger defendant threw the wicket off the hinges. I-Io aftr- wards took hold of me by the throat, threw me down, and held me on the ground whilst his father tirove the cattle through the gate. I afterwards got up and before they lef, my land the lather told the son to throw the second gate off the hinges. The father, rushed through the cattle, and taking hold of me, backed me into a brcok, and the water ran over me, his two knees be- ins on my breast at the time. When I was down I cried out, Hi, wchw murder 1'' (Laughter.) Richard Jarvis, a servant boy of mine, was with me at ;be time, and Owen Thomas canie there. I buifsred much from what they did to me, and bad to pay the doctor 1;0 guineas (bin produced).—Cross-examined I never owed the defendants a grudge. When I got to the gate I hai no spade in m*hand. I had left it in the field. There is no cart road the wav they were going. No cares pass mat way without leave. Sometimes cattle may pass without. tuo owner asking me in the night, but nothing passes righ^.uJy withou, my permission. The defendants have passed that way, but tho fptier ask. cl cv nermission six years ago to go tjat way ,rom the fair with the cows. When they came to the gate I did not raise a shovel, or say if they came that way 1 would split then- heads open, nor threaten them m any way. ^iien I went through the last gate I uad uot a rail in mv h^iid. I did not strike either the horse or the c^tde wi,.h „ne stick.—ite-examined: I was confined^ to m> ocd for three w«»ks in cons queue of the injuries I received. Richard Jarvis said I was with Jarman on the >nday. Evan Jones the father, and the son were driving cattle. Iney went through a small sate belonging to Gluabidno. The gate was shut They asked David Jarman to go thr.mgh it, but he said there was no road without leave. They then opened the and drove the cattle through. The sou did nothing to David Jarman there.—Here it became evident tho boy was confused with tao questions, and he was asked to relate the occurrence in his own way.-I was standing by the garden gate, and Jarman h-2 clone his potatoes, and was coming hoiae with me when we saw some cattle coming, and Evan Jones and his son came and asked to go through the gate. Jarman said there was no road without leave, but they said they would go throu-h without, and they took the wicket off its hinges, and the son put it on Jarman. Thev held him down, and the sou then kicked him. One of the cattle got into the clover, and Evan Jonts, the father, went back for it. They then went onto the other gate. Jarrnan again re- fused leave to go through, and they said, a minute, and you'll see." They then took the gate off the hinges, and let the cattle through. The father next caught Jarman by the neck, dragged him a little way and threw him into the brook. Jones then put his kuees on Jarman's breast, and Jarmau called out iliu-der."—By 3»r Jenkins: The iatLer held Jarman down for a minute or two. Jarman was all over wet and much hurt, He was sick afterwards, and could not no to his work for some time. -Cross-examined by Mr Bishop Evan Jones was wet on his knees, Aly master as at the gate to top them. My master and I had each lurks in the potato field, but my master put down his at the gate. They took the wicket off the hinges without saying anything. JIT master was in Llanidloes the next day, but on Sunday he was in bed —Owen Thomas,a miner living at Manach lyd, Llangurig. said: I was near at the time of the row. I heard Evan Jones, the father, tell the son to throw the gate off its hinges. He did so. Tie father thou "usheil through the cattle and seised carman and both fell down? Jarman called out Murder." I ran to them as fast as I could and saw both rising from the brook. I could see that Jarman wag underneath Jones. Jarman was very wet. I could see he was frightened, but I could not say if he was hurt. I heard Evan Jones say he was the master and strike his hands together. I have gone through the fields with a cart, and have asked ieiV6.—Cr 'ss-extimmeu It was the Jast gate I was at. I I did not know whas the dispute was atout. The brock was two or three yards from the gate. As far as I could see Evan Jones pushed jarman from the gate. Jarman had a small piece of timber or stick, the sizo of his arm. with which he was prevent- ing the cattle going through the gate. -His Honour here suggested that what evidence there was with regard to the assault suould b." called to rebut that given fjr the plaintiff.—Mr Bishop then callÜ 1':vcln Jou-s, the elct" Pontmlio, Ll1\ngurig, farmer and cattle dealer, who said I have lived at that place thirty-five years. I have always used that road in coming from fair. and have always taken cattle that way. I never asked anyone's per- mission to do this, nor has anyone said a word about it. On the day in question I was, as usual, returning from Lledrod fair with seven head of cattle, a calf, and a pony. I had gone through two gates on GlanVidno ground when I saw Jarman in a field. He came up to us with a spade and ordered us to go back. He called for two dog.?, but they did not come, and then he said ii you come forward I will split you with this spade." We went <«n towards the wicket, but there was no room to pa.«3 through, and Jarman tcict us again he would us. He four ticne3 attempted to strike my son, and" then my son got the spade from Jhim. He was pre- venting opening the gate. We took the gate off I am not quite certain whether there were hinges on it. One of my heifers then jumped back into Jarmau's clover, and whilst we were Vetting it back Jarman went to the second gate He stood there and no OBe could open the gate untd my son took it from its hinges. He came back to assist me to get the cattle through, and when we were trying to get them through Jarman stood at the gate with a piece of rail about two yards long, and a little boy vho also had a stick. Moth made motions to prevent the cattle passing through. Jarmtn struck my pony on the head and broke the bridle, and I rushed at him and he feh down some. where, down a little slope I think, but I cannot say where he went. I was not down at all. There is a brook there, and he ♦ell in that direction,-Cross-examined: I only pushed Jarman. 1 believe he did call out something like" Harder. I saw Owen Thomas there near the last gate, I did not get wet at all.- His Honour, at the close of this evideIlc, said that whether the defendants bBd a right of way there or not-he was not trying that question—there was quite evidence enough of an assault, by the father at least, more violence having been used than was necessary, and he was determined to how people that they ought not to take the law into their ewn hands. He did not, however, think that the plaintiff had been much hurt, and should give a judgment for 10s, and costs, against Evan Jones the elder; in the case of the son there would be a nonsuit, without costs: TOWN COUNCIL (ADJOURNED MEETING), TUES- DAY, NOT. 23RD.
