Glyn Neath Police Cases. Police Disguise—Wyndham Davies, bookmaker, Glyn Neath, and William Brewer and Gwilym Thomas, colliers, were charged at Neath County Police Court on Friday with street betting at Glyn Neath on the 29th ult. Mr. Trevor Hunter (instructed by Mr. Matthew Arnold) appeared for the de- fendants.—Police Sergeant Morgan said that he saw Thomas receive five and Brewer two slips from men coming along the road, and Davies take slips from several men at different times. When charged with street betting, Brewer replied I do a bit, you know. These are last week's slips. I do a bit of booking on my own sometimes, but not to-day." Thomas replied: "Y 0\1 didn't find any slips on me. I never acted as a 'bookie,' but I admit 1 did a bit for Wyndham to-day." Police- Constable Evans said that when charged Davies answered, "All right. 1 quite understand." Cross-examined: Both witness and Police Sergeant Morgan wore old clothes, and had dirtied their faces.—Defendants were each fined 40s. and costs. A Brutal Assault.-D. Owen, William Hickey, and Edward Matthews, all of Glyn Neath, pleaded guilty to assault- ing David Phillips, timekeeper at the Aberpergwm Colliery, on May 1. Mr. Jeffreys said the only cause that could be suggested for the outrage was that Phillips had that day at the colliery charged Hickery 6d. for a pay-ticket which he had lost.—" After seeing a friend home on the night of the 1st inst. continued Mr Jeffreys, the defendants waylaid complainant, say- ing, 'Here's Phillips, the timey; we'll give him a hiding.' They then fell upon him, maltreating him to such an extent that he had been ill ever since. The only redeeming feature was that deiendants had apologised to complain- ant and expressed deep regret. In reply to the Bench, Supt. Evans said that Hickey at Maidstone had been sen- tenced to six months for shop-breaking. vlr W. A. Leyson pleaded for leniency for the two other youths.—Owen and Matthews were fined 40s. and costs, and Hickey was sent to prison for a month, with hard labour. Detonators in Mine.-Howell Davies, shot firer, employed at the British Rhondda Colliery, Glynneath, and liv- ing at Rhigos, was summoned for fail- ing to keep detonators, used for the charging of a shot-hole in a suitable locked box, and separate from the other explosives. A tin containing the de- tonators was found in the mine.—De- fendant was fined 20s. and costs.
