DkRKER SIDE OF CARDIFF, On Wednesday a.t Cardiff Police-court (before Messrs. R. Benjamin and Edward Thomas), Maud Wells, 32, was charged 011 a warrant with assisting in the management of a disorderly house at 15, Eldon-road, on the 21st of Feb- ruary. A raid was made by Police-constables Herniman and Frederick Gurney some time after midnight. They had previously seen eight men, and the same number of women, enter, and three men and three women leave. Prisoner was on the doorstep, and said some- thing to the visitors as she admitted them. The police disturbed people in most of the rooms.-OfEcer Herniman, in reply to Mr. Mor- gan Roos, who defended, said he had failed to find out the name of the occupier, and he was unaware that prisoner rented a room in the house and had lived there only a week. He did not suggest that prisoner was the proprietress.—Police-constable Gurney, in his evidence, sai .,I prisoner made the inquiry why the occupier was not proceeded against.— Prisoner was called, and denied having any interest in the management.—Mr. Rees con- tended that prisoner had been made a pcape- goat of, and tha.t the proprietor should be in the plaoe she now occupied in the dock. The woman must live somewhere.—Fined S5 and costs, or a month.—Mr. Reos applied for time. —Superintendent Hayward opposed, and Mr. Benjamin said that in such a case they could rot encourage any extension of time for pay- ment of the penalty. A CHARGE DISMISSED. Winifred Geary, 56, was also charged on a warrant with keeping a disorderly house at 38, Mary Ann-street, on the 20th inst. Prisoner lives next door at No. 37, and she admitted being the occupier to Police-constable Chedzey, who entered under the powers of a warrant. The police-constable related what he had seen in confirmation of the charge, and added that defendant, on being charged, said, "If you want my character go to my brother at Swansea." —Mr. Samuel: Have you any questions?— Prisoner: No, sir. The witness is dangerous. (Laughter.) I am as innocent as God in heaven.—The defence raised was that the house in question was a lodging-house, and that the people surprised by the police were nightly lodgers. The fee for man and wife was 8d. per night, and for single beds 6d.. and these were the regular charges.-The Bench dismissed the case.—Prisoner said humbly, and with a curtsey, "I am very glad; I'll never come here any more."
