THE EXTRAORDINARY CASE OF IMPOSTURE AT MERTHYR. On Wednesday Owen Gibbon Edwards, a cripple was brought up on remand at Merthyr Police Court, charged with obtaining food and lodging from Edith Minchinton, of Quarry House, near the Old Morlais Castle ruins, bv falsely representing himself to be a solicitor. Prisoner, by a course of artful questioning, ascertained from the prose- cutrix that her husband had deserted her, and was supposed to be in America. He then concocted a story that the husband had another wife at Ca,rdifl, and was then in custody charged with falsely pre- tending to be a ship's captain, and with assaulting Supt. Edwards, of the Docks Police. He said that his name was T. S. Edwards, and he was a solicitor and counsel, and he asked to be allowed tc take up a prosecution for bigamy. The woman with an innocence truly marvellous, thoroughly believed in his bona jides, and consented to place the case in his hands. At his request she per- mitted him to stay at her hcuse until he received a letter from his father, and he remained there three or four days until a friend, who saw that she was being duped, advised her to communicatt with the police. The inquiries made by the polict: into the antecedents of the prisoner disclosed the fact that for a long period of time he had been carrying on a similar system of duplicity. He was now committed for trial at the next assizes.
