DEPOSITING ASHES IN A LANE SWANSEA CORPORATION'S ATTACK! AND MAGISTERIAL COMMENTS THEREON. At Swansea on Monday J. W. Ford, Nor- folk-street, was summoned for depositing ashes, etc., in a lane at the back 01 w a road. Mr. W. Arthur Davies defended. Inspector John Nener gave evidence. Mr Davies: Do you know what has been the custom in the past?—I believe there has been tipping in the lane. Witness admitted defendant bad not been warned, but there was a notice on the walls. As a rule they gave nctice before prosecution, but had not in this case. Mr..Javies submitted that as Corporation men were continually doing the same thing, notice ought to have been given. The Chairman said it was a reasonable de- fence. Notice should have been given. The authorities seemed to have become sud- denly virtuous. Dr. John Jones, Fynone-street, and Thos, Lewis, Picton-place, were similarly summoned.—MT. Jones said he put out the ashes for the Corporation to take away. In the care of Mr. Lewis, Inspector Lamb- ert said he had seen defendant emptying a bucket of ashes into the street at 11.15 p.m. There were complaints of this sort of thing generally. Mr. Lewis was fined Is., but the other summonses were dismissed.
