BRUTAL ASSAULT. SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST A MILITIAMAN. On Monday, at the Swansea Police Court, John Logan, 22, of 2, Elephant-row, was charged with doing grievous bodily harm to a woman named Johanna Rowe, on April 12th, at the bar of the Empire Palace. The priso- ner wa.s arrested on Friday last, and brought to Swansea late on Saturday evening. His dress was the uniform of the Royal Engineer Militia. Superintendent Thomas explained at the outset that this was the case in which the woman wa.s lying In a precarious state at the hospital. Under the circumstances, he only proposed to offer sufficient evidence to justify a remand for a week. Elizabeth Thomas, sister of Mrs Rowe, was called, and stated that on Saturday night week she saw the pri- soner fighting with the husband of Mrs Rowe in the bar of the old Empire. Mrs Rowe tried to separate them, and then witness saw Logan kick her in the stomach. Prisoner was re- manded for TS week. On Wednesday Mr Henry Thompson applied to the magistrates that the man Logan should be released on bail. Captain Colquhoun, how- ever, said the woman was in a critical state, and prisoner might be wanted at any moment to be present at the taking of her dying depo- sitions. The Bench refused the application. Mr Thompson: Perhaps your worships will see fit to order that the prisoner should have an interview with his solicitor without the presence of the police. Captain Colquhoun We shall be very happy to lock Mr Thompson up in the cell with the man, sir. (Laughter.) Mr Thompson That will meet my views, sir.
