ç¡ Assault In a Railway Carriage At the Llanrwst Police Court, on Monday, before. Colonel Johnson and other magis- trates, a Festiniog man named John Ro- berts was charged with a violent assault upon John Owen Thomas, accountant, of Watling street, Llanrwst, in a railway car- riage on Monday night. It appeared that the complainant and Mrs Thomas travelled from Llandudno in a carriage, among the occupants of which was the prisoner. At Glan Conway, several passengers alighted, the only persons-remaining in the compart- ment being the parties niamedi. Shortly after the train started the accused was said to have attacked Mr Thomas furiously with the butt end of his umbrella. Mrs Thomas was alarmed, and screamed loudly. The as- sailant continuted to make violent efforts to assault the prosecutor, who had to shield his wife and to prevent her from throwing herself out of the train. This went on till the train drew up at Talycafn Station, where Mr and Mrs Thomas made complaints to the officials. In the excitement the accused went to another carriage. The defence of Mr Jones Morris, who appeared for the de- fendant, was that Roberts had met with a serious accident some time ago at the quar- ries, and once he indulged in alcohol he be- came almost irresponsible for his actions. The bench imposed a fintf of R5, including costs. The bench severely oommented upon the fact that the railway company had not taken up the prosecution; but it was stated that the company had no time.
