THE ALLEGED SWINDLING NEAR CARMARTHEN. On Tuesday, Owen Edwards, a young man, aged 23, was brought up at the Carmarthen Prison (be- fore Mr. E. M. Davies) on remand charged with I obtaining Is 8d. by means of false pretences from Thomas Thomas, of Vanygath, Llandefeilog, on the 11th of June. The prosecutor deposed that prisoner came to his blacksmith shop on the day in question, and remained in con- versation with him for about two hours. He represented himself to be the son of a deceased Mr. Jarvis, minister of the Penygraig Chapel, a person who was well-known to witness. He said he was going to Nantegoitre to receive i25 which his uncle had lent a man named Jones, and requested Thomas to lend him some money. Upon his repro sentation the prosecutor lent him Is 6d. Prose- cutor's daughter challenged him at the time that he was not Mr. Jarvis's son, but he said he had been ill and had greatly altered. Prisoner, having been previously convicted, was now contmitted for trial at the quarter sessions. He was stated to have formerly held a situation in the post-office at. St. Clear's, which he left with a goorl character, and he had also been clerk to a solicitor at Tredegar. His father owns considerable property at Gower-road, near Swansea.
