Aberdare Police Court. WEDNESDAY, May 6th.-Before Mr R. A. Griffith (deputy Stipendiary), Mr. D. P. Davies, Col. M. Morgan, Mr D. W. Jones, Capt. G. A. Evans and Mr Griffith Evans. Transfer.—Mr Gwilym Jones applied for the transfer of a billiard licence in Abercynon from Margaret Davies to James Sims, Mountain Ash.—Granted, Drunks.—David Harries, in Tre- cynon, 10s. and costs; Stephen Morris, in Cwmbach Itoad, 10s. and costs; Philip Lloyd, in Cwmbach Road, 10s. and costs; Joseph Coney, in High St., Hirwain, 5s. and costs; Morgan Wil- liams, in Gadlys Road, 10s. and costs; P.C.

Defendant; was not present, and a fine of 10s. and costs was imposed. Procuring Drink. Richard Grant, Aberaman, was charged with attempt- ing to procure drink for a drunken per- son at the Plough Inn, Aberaman. This case arose from the charge preferred against the landlord of the Plough Inn, heard at the last Court.—P.S. Griffiths now said that Grant went into the house with James (the man found drunk on the premises), and ordered 5 half-pints, one being for James. Grant stated on oath at the last C .ii't "chat he knew James was drunk, and a man named Collins corroborated.—Mr W. T. Howell, who defended, cross-examined P.S. Griffiths with the view of proving that Grant did not ask a second time for a drink for James. This was the first case of the kind ever heard in the local Courts. He asked the Bench to dismiss the case on payment of costs. TI-ie de- puty Stipendiary said he had looked upon Grant as the demon of the piece. It was the landlord who had to suffer when people called for drinks for drunken persons. A good deal of this kind of thing went on in the district, but as this was the first case of the kind, the fine would be only Is. and costs-8s. altogether. Milk and Beer.—John Thorp, milk- vendor, Aberdare, was summoned for leaving his horse and cart unattended in Station Street. P.S. German de- posed that he saw the horse and cart opposite the Roberts Arms. "Witness went inside the public-house and saw defendant in the bar with half-a-pint of beer in front of him. Defendant, when spoken to, said that he had left a boy in charge. Witness told him he would be reported, and he replied: "Report me to h Defendant after coming out to the door, went back into the public-house and stayed there another nine minutes, during which time the horse and cart were still unattended.— Defendant: The Sergeant has said one of the most confounded lies he ever said in his life. (Laughter.) P.C. Henebury corroborated Sergeant Ger- man's evidence.—Defendant went into the witness-box and stated that when he went into the Roberts Arms he could not get an answer. When he obtained an answer he supplied them with the milk and obtained a glass of beer while waiting for the change. A boy was sup- posed to come down from the depot in Elizabeth Street, but he didn't come.- Stipendiary What was to prevent that horse bolting "Defendant That horse wouldn't bolt in 20 years.

German, he visited the Queen's Hotel and identi- fied the dog-a Scotch terrier. He spoke to Mrs. Davies and she replied: I am very sorry. I have never heard complaints of his biting anybody, but I know he barks at policemen when they come here." (Laughter.)—Mr W. R. Morgan said it was a young dog, and an undertaking would be given to get rid of him.—Super. Rees wanted to know whether the dog was to be destroyed or sent to some other district.

Defendant's brother said the notices were there, and only greengrocery had been sold after 11 p.m.—Fined 2s. 6d. and costs. Abercynon Children Neglected.-Jas. Walsh, 59 Park Street, Abercynon, was summoned for neglecting his children. Mr W. Thomas, Aberdare, prosecuted for the N.S.P.C.C. Inspector W. R. Roberts, of the N.S.P.C.C., said he had followed this case since July, 1913. When he called at various dates there was very little food in the house. He had found work for the defendant on several occasions, but after working for a few days Walsh would go away and leave his family unprovided for. The wife was a very industrious woman and kept the children clean. When he (wit- ness) called in March last defendant had been idle for a fortnight. On April 27th he left home, and was arrested on a warrant issued at the instance of his wife.—Wm. Healey, relieving officer, gave evidence of the relief given to prisoner's family and said that he was in the habit of leaving his wife and family chargeable to the Parish, and not saying where he was going. — Mrs. Walsh, wife of prisoner, said that she was quite willing to give evidence. Her husband was of drunken habits, and on one occasion he had 15s. and wouldn't give her anything. There was no bread in the house, but he had whisky and beer in the house. He had smashed up several homes. Had it not been for the Inspector and the Relieving Officer her children would have been starved. Her husband had good health, but was idle and would lie in bed all day rather than go to work.-P.C. Williams stated that the last witness was a very good woman. He had been called to the house on many occasions because of Walsh's drunkenness.—Stipendiary: It is no use talking to you, you haven't a spark of human feeling in you.

Three Months for a Coat. Robert Reeves was charged with stealing a lady's coat, value 30s., the property of Margaret Griffiths, a widow, of 9 Little Wind Street, Aberdare. Prosecutrix stated that on April 10th last prisoner came to her and asked for lodgings. She told him to come back at night and he did so. She gave him a cup of tea, and afterwards she went out for coal. When she came back prisoner had gone, and she missed the coat from the passage. She saw him going down the street with the coat over his arm. She called him but he didn't come back, and she then informed the police.—Irene Griffiths, a dressmaker, having given evidence, Elizabeth Williams, married woman, 25 Oak Street, Aberdare, stated that the prisoner came to her house and asked if he might leave the coat produced at her house. She gave it to the police.-In- spector Nott gave evidence of arrest.- Prisoner was further charged with stealing a man's coat, value 20s., the property of Thomas Cooke, 3 Gloster Street, Aberdare.

Henebury received the prisoner into custody from the Car- marthen police. Another charge against the prisoner was that of steal- ing an umbrella, the property of Sarah Webb, 3 Gloster Street. Prosecutrix stated that prisoner applied for lodg- ings with her on April oth last. He left and took the umbrella with him. — Maggie May Lewis, 59 Bute Street, Aberaare, stated that the umbrella (produced) was the one left by the prisoner at her house. She gave it to the police.—Supt. Rees stated that there was one previous conviction against prisoner for stealing in the early part of this year. Prisoner was sent to gaol for three months in each case, the sentence to run concurrently. Application.On behalf of the Com- mittee of the Aberaman Institute Mr. John Jones, manager, made an applica- tion for a dancing licence for the Insti- tute.—Granted. Saved from the Wreck." Hugh Lewis, 28 Woodland Street, Mountain Ash, was charged with loitering for the purpose of receiving and settling bets. -Mr S. Shipton appeared for defend- ant.—P.C. Clarkson said that defend- ant was under his observation one day from 1.15 to 2 p.m. He saw defendant coming up Oxford Street and standing opposite the Workmen's Hall, where he saw him talking to two men. Several men came to defendant and handed him slips of paper. Witness arrested him and charged him with loitering for the purpose of receiving bets. Lewis re- plied, "I have nothing to say." Wit- ness searched him and found in his pocket a broken slip of paper, 2 sovereigns, 4 half-sovereigns, and several pieces of silver, j66 5s. 9d. in all. Defendant had not, to his know- ledge, worked for 2! years.—Defendant, in the witness box, stated that he had to relinquish work owing to ill-health. He had been idle from November to February last.

The two men referred to were two local footballers. He had done no betting at all. The money he had with him he had taken from tire house.—By Supt. Rees: The previous convictions were in re- spect of charges similar to the present one.—By the Stipendiary He could not account for the presence of the torn slip in his pocket. It was an old coat. He had no special purpose in keeping all that money in his pocket. He took similar sums with him every day. It was safer in his pocket than at home. That money he had saved from the wreck last year.-The Stipendiary was satisfied that the charge had been proved, and fined Lewis £10 and costs.

New High Constable. Appointment of Capt. C. A. Evans, J.P. At Aberdare Police Court on Wednes- day morning, before the Deputy Sti- pendiary and the local Magistrates, the appointment of a new High Constable took place. There was a strong muster of tradesmen from Aberdare and Moun- tain Ash, including several ex-High Constables, namely, Mr. Frank Hodges, Mr W. Thomas, Mr John Howell and Mr J. H. Powell. In the first place Mr. R. H. Miles, the retiring High Constable, handed to the Deputy Stipendiary the staff of office, and re- marked that he had not had any occa- sion to use it. (Laughter.) Mr Miles also handed to the Bench an envelope containing a few names from which they were expected to make the selec- tion.—The Deputy Stipendiary said he would leave it to the local Magistrates to make the selection. He understood from what he had heard that Mr Miles had carried out the duties admirably, and to the entire satisfaction of the in- habitants of Miskin Higher.—Mr. D. P. Davies, as the senior magistrate, congratulated Mr. Miles on having maintained the dignity of the office so well. If he had not used the staff, lie had used something else very freely, and doubtless his pocket was lighter than it was 12 months ago. (Laughter.) Mr Miles had been called upon to perform one sad duty, and that was in connec- tion with the Senghenydd explosion. The Bench had selected Capt. Evans to be the new High Constable.—Mr. R. H. Miles then invested Mr Evans with the chain of office, and wished him a suc- cessful year. Mr Davies had referred to the Senghenydd explosion' Aber- dare had eonrtibuted well to the fund raised, £ 750 being sent to Lord Mer- thyr. He had also collected L300 to- wards the National Library Fund. Mr Miles referred to other important functions he had attended during the year.—Capt. Evans responded and said it was with considerable hesitation that he had allowed himself to be elected. He appreciated the honour very highly, for he understood that the office had developed into a very important one. He appreciated the honour all the more because he was an Aberdare boy, hav- ing been born within a few yards of that building. He hoped he would be able to pass the chain of office unsullied to his successor.—The Deputy Stipen- diary congratulated Mr. Evans on his appointment. He understood that Mis- kin Higher enjoyed the unique honour of having a High Constable, and they should retain that ancient and honour- able office. These things were worth preserving if only as relics of antiquity, but he gathered from Mr. Miles that the office was no sinecure: Captain Evans would, no doubt, be called upon to look after the moral and material welfare of the district in many ways, and he (Mr Griffith) wished him a very happy year of office. (Hear, hear.) —Mr. R. H. Miles expressed regret at the absence of Sir. T. Marchant Wil- liams owing to illness, and hoped he would soon be restored to complete health. The Reception.—The usual reception was held at the Boot Hotel, Mr R. H. Miles, High Constable, presiding. There were preesnt the following: Capt. G. A. Evans, J.P., Councillor W. Thomas, Councillor Griffith Evans (chairman of Mountain Ash District Council), Messrs J. H. Powell, Frank Hodges, A. Pin- combe (Clerk Mountain Ash District Council), D. Llewelyn Griffiths (Clerk to Aberdare District Council), Council- lor Evan Morris, Messrs. D. W. Howell, D. S. Lewis, D. T. Evans, John Howell, Lloyd Davies, T. W. Griffiths, Coun- cillor Jackson Thomas, W. R. Edwards, T. Dovey J. Edwards, W. Haggar, Gwilym Jones. The High Constable and several representatives from Moun- tain Ash made felicitous speeches.—Mr Joe Edwards was pleased to be present. Although not being very well acquainted with Mr Evans, he had read about him in books. (Laughter.) He hoped he would have a happy year of office.-Mr W. R. Edwards complimented Mr Evans on his appointment. He had known him for 20 years, and could vouch for his business capabilities and his integrity.—Mr W. Haggar compli- mented Mr Evans. The gentlemen that he had known as High Constables were real ones.—Councillor Jackson Thomas remembered Mr. Evans in his younger days, and he felt proud that a boy he had known in his youth had come to the proud position of High Constable of Miskin Higher.—Mr D. S. Lewis, Glan- cynon Hotel, Mountain Ash, had great pleasure in finding Mr Evans in the high office of High Constable. He was sure he would do his duty.-The High Constable (Mr. Evans) said that he had been wondering who the person was that they had all been talking about. He only hoped that he would have just as nice things said about him at the end of the year. He thanked them for their invitation to the highest office that the district had to give. He was sensible of the many eminent men who had held the office and he felt it incumbent on him to keep the office with dignity. He regretted that his wife was not living to see him raised to the proud position that they had honoured him with. He had received encouragement from many friends, and he felt that he could never attain the position he had, had it not been for those friends. Although lin- ing at Mountain Ash, he was proud to think that he had never severed his connection with Aberdare. Mr. Evans then proceeded to propose the toast of the ex-High Constable, coupling with it the name of Mrs. Miles. Mr Evan riowells Evans then presented the ex- High Constable with a record of the work performed by him during his year of office.-—-Mr R. H. Miles expressed his thanks for the interesting volume hand- ed to him. He thanked them all for the nice things said about him, and es- pecially the reference to his wife, who had been a real helpmate to him. He couldn't close without a reference to the help he had received from his pre- decessor, Mr. Powell. Mr. Powell thanked Mr Miles for his kind ex- pressions towards him and also Mrs. files for her assistance during the past year.—Mr Frank Hodges thought that Mr Miles had carried out the office in an admirable manner. He seemed born to it. He was also pleased to know that Mr Evans had a daughter, who was quite able to perform the duties of Lady High Constable. Mr W. Thomas was glad to know that there was a feeling of entente cordiale between Aberdare and Mountain Ash. He was pleased to see there the Clerk of each Council and also the Chairman of Mountain Ash Council.—Mr. Griffith Evans thanked Mr. Thomas for his kind reference to him. They were old friends, and he was proud to know that Mr Thomas was Chairman of the Aberdare Council in the same year as he (Mr. Evans) was at Mountain Ash.—Mr A. Pincombe and several others also spoke.
Fatality at Rhigos. Mr. R. J. Rhys, coroner, held an in- quest at the New Inn,. Rhigos, touching the death of James Phillips (16), of Penywaun, Rhigos. Deceased was en- gaged as a collier boy at the British Rhondda Mine, having only worked six weeks underground. Mr. David Howells was foreman of the jury.— Gilbert Phillips, father, gave evidence of identification. The lad died whilst being conveyed home from the colliery. —Fra'ik Coles, 6 Pontwalby, stated that the lad commenced work with him on Tuesday week. After 11 a.m. on Wednesday witness was throwing coal into a tram, so as to get place to raise a collar. The boy was standing then m front of the tram, between the tram and the face, and was practically idle. There came at once a strong pounce in the coal. Some coal fell, knocking the sprag over, and then from eight to ten cwts. of coal fell upon the boy, one lump completely covering his body. Help was soon got and the boy was extricated. There was no overhanging coal, and the sprag used was well lidded. and fixed firmly in the ground. The coal had sounded quite strong, and he had no thought of it giving way. The pounce, which was a sharp and short one, discharged the sprag. For 14 years he had been engaged as a miner, and for 10 years at the British Rhon- dda Colliery.—The fireman of the dis- trict, Edmund Griffiths, said that he was on the scene of the accident about an hour previously The sprag, which later was discharged, was quite tight. The coal that fell upon the boy came out of a fac? slip. Pounces were fre- quent at the colliery. Coles was a practical and most useful collier.—John Graham, surveyor, then explained the plans.—The Coroner, in summing up, expressed his sympathy with the ber- eaved parent. The evidence given showed that no fault could be at- tached to Coles. It was a pure accident, caused chiefly by the pounce in the coal discharging the sprag. Verdict: Accidental death."
Ynysarwed Strike. CHECKWEIGHER UNDER POLICE PROTECTION. On Monday morning some 400 of the workmen of the Ynysarwed Colliery marched to the colliery, and tried peace- ful persuasion on the section of the workmen who were escorted to work under police protection. They number about 50, and include collier boys and day wage men, chiefly from the Aber- dulais district. The checkweigher was also escorted by three police officers and was the subject of much booing. There were about 40 to 50 police officers under Inspector Morris and Sergeant Martin, who guarded the men, and es- corted the checkweigher to his work, and also to his home in the evening. A meeting was held near the colliery, and it was decided to obtain legal advice regarding the ejecting of the check- weigher.—On Monday evening a mass meeting was held on the cricket field, and the result of the morning march discussed. Mr. J. Jones, who was at- tacked at the last meeting, came for- ward to explain the true position of the matter. A workman stated that the Inspector had asked who was the ringleader? This had a tendency to incite the men, but they kept cool. They wanted sympathy in fighting for a principle. Someone asked if the office of checkweigher was a perpetual one? If not, why allow him to remain there? There had been a ballot, and 53 voted against the checkweigher and 8 for. The number of members eligible to vote was 92. They were now waiting for legal advice. It was decided to go down at 5.30 in the morning and to hold a mass meeting on Tuesday.—On Tuesday a strong procession of the men who are out marched down to the col- liery, and were confronted by Inspector Morris and a posse of about 20 police. They stopped the men and ordered them to go back 50 yards, and appoint a depu- tation of two or three to speak to the men that were working, as in the mass they were too much of a menace. With that the workmen got on to an em- bankment, and the checkweigher came on the scene spiling, accompanied by a bodyguard of police, who had called at the house for him, about a mile from the colliery, and escorted him all the way. Afterwards came from 50 to 60 boys, including labourers and colliers, who wera chaffed and booed by the strikers. The strikers afterwards held a meeting, and decided to ask workmen from other districts to keep away dur- ing the dispute.
In olden times the people judged their medi- cine by it's severity —now, however they have learned that nothing but harm fol- lows the use of these old- fashioned and severe nos- trums. Rexall Orderlies are a common-sense remedy for Constipation. Gentle, and pleasant to take, they never gripe, cause nausea, or the slightest inconvenience. They tend to tone and strengthen the delicate intestinal nerves and muscles, promptly relieve constipation, help to over- come it's cause, and make it's recurrence improbable. .J]1 these things they differ from old-fashioned medicines, which usually only give temporary re- lief and often leaves the patient in a worse con- dition than ever. Especially suitable for children, delicate and aged persons. 71d., 1/- and 2/- Sold in this vicinity only by— E. Em ys Evans, MPS., Dispensing Chemist, Victoria Square, Aberdare. i
