SWANSEA MONEY-LENDERS WIGGING." Justice Gwilym Williams Sharp Criticism. His Honour Judge Gwilym Williams, sit- ting at the Swansea County Court, on Tues- day, administered a severe rebuke to Mr. David Jones, financier, Alexandra-road Swansea, who said a certain defendant whom he was suing, could pay in one sum. His Honour, addressing David Jones, said When you said the defendant could pay in one >uui, you must have known you were saying what was untrue. You know that a man wlio has had an execution against his furniture and the execution was not satisfied, that he cannot be in a position to pay the money down. \ou know that as well as I do. There- fore try aiwl be fair. You get me to do an injustice. It is very difficult to do justice, even when I know the whole of the facts, but when you mislead me it is impossible to do justice. You should be careful, Mr. Jones, you are a great deal too fond of money. You "buy these debts or at least you get an exorbi- tant interest ilr. Jon.es interposed, but His Honour, stopping him, said Don't you talk to me, Mr. Jomes, or eke I shall tell you something YOU won't like. I have no sym- pathy with people like you. 1: ou get people to 'borrow money from you, and you get iol exorbitant interest, so you ought to give them time. The pinch must come, as I told a man yesterday, and you ought to have a httle con- science, and give them time. In order that I may try and do justice you must not mislead me. If I find you out misleading me-well. that is enough tor you; you will know what to expect.
