Has the whole money collected in the works been paid over to you?—I believe so. Have you any doubt about it? Are you taking the money from the whole of the workmen, including the 419 who voted for Dr. Davies in the ballot?—Every man is paying. Although you do not attend them?—I do attend many of them. Wasn't there a disturbance among the men when you got rid of your partner?— TLere was. And was there not a great deal of dis- satisfaction in your getting rid of him by a month's notice?—Tin1 re was. Don't you know that there are between 200 and 300 workmen to whom you are not the medical attendant at the works, but are being paid?—That is possible. Do you think that is quite fair or is it not fairer c~r the men to luaTC Dr. "A." or Dd. "B." or Dr. "C. and pay to them ?—Yes. Now, did you more heaven and earth be- fore the ballot and with the assistance of the medical committee and too manager to get the men to vote for you?—I did a week before the ballot. Did you have a party at your house. I did not. Did you give an entertainment to yonr people at the house?—I did not. Did you give a supper there?—I did ::ot. Did you issue this circular (produced)? I did. Before r ing the circular counsel elicited that Dr. Davies, of Manselton, is a Welsh- speaking doctor. And you ar'3 not?—No, I am not. Is it a well-known fact that people in Wales like to have a doctor who can speak the language of the hearth ?—Yes, but I have never had any trouble about it. In your view, is Welsh important in this district?—I do not think so. Why, then, did you issue your circular in WtaLsh as well as in English? (Laughter).— Some of the men understood it in Welsh better. Who translated the English for you-we won't prosecute the printer of it under 39, George III. (Laughter.) Plaintiff turned to the Judge. Mr. Evans: I won't press it. Counsel read the circular, which began "My dear friend," and which went on to claim that plaintiff had devoted his energies and talents to alleviate the necessities of the workmen. "I have been with you," it went on, "in many times of greatest sorrow, and have always endeavoured to soothe the sufferings of those whom you love most, trulv and best." Counsel (interposing in the reading): Can you claim credit for this, because it is in a very fine literary style?—No. Then you didn't translate, and you are not responsible for its Johnsonian style? (Laughter.) The circular went on respectfully to ask the men to vote fo.. plaintiff, and ended "Your faithful surgeon." Plaintiff admitted that the circular was given out to the workmen as they knocked off, and said that Dr. Davies was tryimg for the appointment as well. Counsel next read a circular, issued by Dr Glasbrook Davies, of Manselton, which ran: "If you elect my brother my services will be at your disposal as in the past. My brother has offered to pay Dr. Thomas, so that they who wish may retain his ser- vices." Do you complain of that?—No, sir. Coming to the alleged libel, plaintiff said he had not heard there was an original petition, and that the one complained of was a mere copy. Plaintiff admitted telling his solicitor to write to certain of Dr. Davies' supporters, threatening them with proceedings, and acknowledged that it was not fair amd honourable to do that.
