NEATH WOUNDING CASE AT THE ASSIZES. PHOSECUTOR UNDERGOES EYERE CROSS-EXAMINATION. EAROX ALTKRSTONE BINDS ACCUSED OVER. At Glamorgan Assizes on Tuesday—before the Lord Chief Justice—a lad named Harold Harris, employed as greaser at Neath Gal- vanising Works, surrendered to hi", bail, charged with wounding Joseph G«-thing, en- | gineman at the same works, wiih a kmfc, on February 27tit last. Mr. Ivor Powen (in- strncted by MT. Trevor Hunt er) appeared for prosecutor, and Mr. Lloyd Morgan (in- structed by Messrs.. Morgan and David) de- fended. Prosecutor said accused came into the engine room and refused to go out. (prosecutor) pushed him, and tho boy, after falling over a heap of coal, pulled out a pocket-knife and stabbed him in the left side, though the wound was not a serious one. Mr. Lloyd Morgan put it that prosecutor caught hold of the boy by the t hroat and nearly suffocated him. Prosecutor denied this, but admitted tak- ing defendant by the throat about a month ago. Judge What was that for? Prosecutor Because he was shouting out between the machinery. Counsel Did you do that more than once? —I may have without knowing it. You are rather fond of taking people by the throat?—No, sir. Prosecutor admitted having assaulted men named Flaherty and Probert, but said he had reasons for eo doing, which he gave. Counsel: You are rather fond of assaulting people?—Oh, no, sir. You knew this boy was rather delicate?— I don't know about delicate, but I know he is rather different to other boys. You mean mentally—rather weak-minded? —A little, sir; I only knew that the other day. You had taken a great dislike to this boy ?—Not at all, sir. In further explanation, prosecutor ad- mitted rubbin-g his greasy bands in the boy's face. Counsel: What did you do that for ?— Only love or friendship. (Laughter.) Prosecutor also admitted putting oil in accused's food-basket because, he said, it was always in the way. Amongst other witnesses, Dr. Morris stated that, although the wound was not a dangerous one, prosecutor was too weak to return to his work. A fair amount of force must have been used. P.C. Michael said that when charged, ac- cused said "I did not mean to do it, and I am sorry for it." Witness was unable to produce the okod-stained ?hirt as he had left his bag in the -train to Cardiff, and had taken another bag instead. (Laughter.) Ac- cused bore an excellent character. On the suggestion of the Lord Chief Jus- i tice, the plea of "Not guilty" was with- drawn, and in binding the lad over in the sum of B5, said it was very unmanly to use the knife, but that he bad been provoked.
