Hirwain Publican Fined,


Hirwain Publican Fined, POLICE HIDING IN A VAN. At the Cefn Petty Sessions on Thurs- day (before Colonel D. R. Lewis and other magistrates) Rees Stephen Davies, licensee of the Butchers' Arms, Hirwain, was summoned for selling intoxicating liquor during prohibited hours on Sun- day, August 11th. Mr Ernest Jones appeared to prose- cute on behalf of the police, and Mr F. P. Charles defended. P.C.'s Hamer and Jones hid in a van in the yard of the Brecon Arms, 70 yards away, and through two small windows in the van they kept the Butchers Arms under observation. Their narrative was that they saw two men, named Coates and Cox pass the public house and make a sign with their hands. The two men then went up to the door of the public- house, passed in something and then received something, which they put into their inside coat pocket. The constables went up, and found that each man had a bottle of stout in his pocket. Defend- ant denied that he sold the stout, saying that his was a tied house, and he could not sell the liqour produced. He called one Watkins, late licensee of the Rail- way Inn, who said that he sold the stout to Cox. The bench imposed a fine of £3 and costs on Daves, and fined Cox 5s and costs for aiding and abetting. Barry Summer School. The above school this last month has been a most decided success. One hundred and forty teachers from the Glamorgan Schools were busily at work for the term. The exhibition which was held at the close was well worth a visit. The wood carving was really excellent, and all the other subjects taken showed maris of excellence. If some of these subjects were taken up in the Council Evening Class Schools, they would enlist general interest, and tend to greatly popularise these classes. Considering the amount of money spent by the County on these classes during the last winter, amounting to some £ 19,000, it would be well if those in authority made some effort to popularise and increase the interest in them. Great credit is due to Mr Sutcliff for the admirable organisation and manage- ment of these classes. Two of the Aberdare Governors put in an appearance, viz., Councillor David Hughes and Mrs Walter Lloyd. Very large crowds of people from various parts visited the exhibition on both days.
