ANFIESEA'S NEW CHIEF CONSTABLE. The post of- chief-constable of Anglesea has been offered to Mr. Lewis Protheroe, police- inspector of Bangor. Mr. Protheroe is a native of Llindilc, Carmarthenshire, and was born in 1841. He joined the police force in 1861, when he was just twenty years of age, and was for some; time stationed at Beddgeiert. While there four prisoners escaped from Car- narvon Gaol, and defied all attempts to capture them. Mr. Protheroe came across the four at Nantmor, and watched them going into a stable to sleep. Single-handed he effected their captura lie was soon after made clerk to the chief-constable. In 1854 he was made a ser- geant, and three years later he was raised to an inspectorship. In 1869 he was made junior superintendent, and shortly after deputy chief- constable. In 1873 Mr. Protheroe again dis- tinguifhed himself by a clever and single- handed capture of a notorious rcbber who had infested the county and had committed num- berless crimes with impunity. In 1883, how- ever, Mr. Protheroe was degraded to the rank of inspector and removed to Portmadoo on account of his connection with certain criti- cisms of the late chief-constable of Carnarvon. While at Portm-adoc Mr. Protheroe again dis- tinguished himself by capturing a notorious housebreaker, and, after nine years of active wc.rk, he was transferred to Bangor, where he has remained till now. Mr. Protheroe is a Welsh-speaking Welshman and a Nonconfor- mist. =-
