NORTH WALES SHOOTING AFFAIR. THE KEEPERS COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. The resumed hearing of the Merionethshire shooting case took place at Towyn on Friday, before Air. Thurston and other magistrates.- Mr. W. R. Davios, who represented the police, strongly objected to the presence of Mr. Thurston, on the ground that he was 9 member of the Dovey Fishing Club.—MR Thurston denied being a member, but claimed to sit, even if he were.—Air. Davies then ap- pealed to Mr. Thurston to withdraw, but tho latter decidedly declined.—Two hours were then spent in repeating and interpreting the evidence of the previous witnesses.—The wit- ness Williams gave further evidence, to the effect tha.t no scuffle took place before the shooting, and there were a fence and a. brook between them when the shooting commenced, and this statement WAS corroborated by Whit- tington. One of the injured men stated that six shots were fired in all, and that the last reached him when he was crossing the fence to the railway.—Robert Thomas, farmer, Abergarfaii, and liis wife swore that at one o'clock Oil the morning of January 12 they were awakened by sounds of shooting. They got np, and went to the window, when they saw Parry and Shaw in the middle of the field. Parry had a gun in one hand, and a lighted torch in the other.-—Dr. Jones spoke to the injuries received by the men, and stated that the pellets had been embedded rather deep in the flesh.—Defendants pleaded not guilty, and Mr. Woosnam, on their behalf, pleaded that there had been great provocation, and that men attacked as these were were entitled to shoot their aggressors in order to defend the lives of themselves and their friends.—The Magistrates, having retired, declared that they were unanimous in committing the keepers for trial at the quarter sessions. JB50 bail being accepted. The charges against the men OF assaulting the keepers were adjourned for A month.
