Anglesey Quarter Sessions


Anglesey Quarter Sessions A CLEAN SHEET. THE CHAIRMAN ON CRUELTY TO CHILDREN. Tilt- Quarter Sessions for the County of Anglesey were held on Wednesday at flit3 County Hall, Baumaris, Sir Richard Wiiiianis- Euikeiey, Bart., presiding. Sir Richard said there was no business to come before the gl CLüd. jury; the sanctity of tht- hland of Anglesey was proverbiaJ, and it was once, agam ^xwnplitiea oy a ciean (sulendax. lliere two nvtt/t crh to whicli in* flc-— sired to draw the attention of the grand jury.

He wished to draw their attention to the -fact that this society was doing au en- ormous amount of'good all over the country. If any knowledge of bad treatment or neg- led of children came to their notice, they should make use of this society, and place its inspector upon the track of the offenaei s. and by doing that they should be doing their duty. The other matter to which he wished to "direct their attention was in connection with what he might almost call fraudulent ad- vertisements.
