A TRAGEDY OF THE-DRINK. Carmarthen Father's Neglect. At Carmarthen Borough Police Court on Monday, Evan Jenkins, ostler. Knight's Build- ings, Lammas-street, was summoned by In- spector Idris Roberts, of the N.S.P.C.C., for neglecting his seven year old boy. Mr James John, solicitor, Carmarthen, who appeared for the prosecution, stated that the case had been under the observation of the society for the last two years. The child at present was fairly nourished, but the nourishment had not been supplied by the defendant, who was a worth- less drunken man. For the past three or four months the money the wife had received from the defendant could be counted in shillings on tite fingers of both hands, and were it not for her own labour she and the child must have starved. Advocate suggested that the only punishment that would meet the case would be to send the defendant to prison. Inspector T. Idris Jones stated that when he spoke to the defendant ahout his conduct he said, It is quite true it is all through the drink." Frances Jenkins, the wife, stated that her husband in his craving for drink had taken several articles from the house, includ- ing a skirt and a petticoat, and sold them for drink at a public-house. Sergeant Phillips stated that the defendant was always in a half-soaked condition, and had been before the Court 19 times. Defendant had also been on the black list in 1903. The Mayor (Alderman John Lewis) said it was a very bad case. and it was shameful for anyone to have bought goods from the defen- dant under such circumstances. Defendant was sent to prison for two months with hard labour, and costs were remitted to the society on the application of Mr John. Mr Thomas Thomas (one of the magis- trates) I think it is to the credit of the society that this case has been brought before us. Mr John I am very much obliged to your Worship for saying so.
