Si:-¿ False Pretences Charge. At Neath on Friday Supt. Menhennick ap- plied for .1 remand against David Thomas Thomas, who is charged with obtaining a truck of swedes by false pretences from Messrs. H. ai d W Sessions, Newport. Supt. Menhennick said the accused ordered the swedes, the superscription on the order form being "Henback Farm, Skewen." This was the false pretence complained of, Messrs. Sessions thinking by the superscription that the defendant was a respectable man .eally in charge of the farm, and consigned to him the truck of swedes, which in due course ar- rived at Neath Abbey, where they were claimed by the accused, who paid £3 Is. in carriage. Subsequently he had them return- ed to Xeath to Mr. Bowden to whom he sold the swedes at a price lower tlian he would have had to pay Messrs. Sessions. Mr. Menhennick concluded: In view < f the amount of correspondence which I have res- pecting the doings of the accused and the ne- cessity f >r further inquiries, I ask that he be remanded in custody for a week. P.S. Jones proved arrest of accused, who said, "I did not defraud them. The gentle- men were here with me to-day, and I gave them a note to go to Mr. Bowden to get the money." Accused, who asked for bail, was then re- manded in custody.
