Paternity Case.—.Mary Hopkins, Trecynon, summoned Llewelyn Treen, 8 Lewis Terrace, Penydarren, Merthyr, miner, to show cause, etc. Defendant did not appear. — Com- plainant said she gave birth to a child on May 9'th. Treen had sent her letters admitting paternity and had paid her 4s. per week for five weeks. He had expressed his wil- lingness to pay that amount weekly. Mary Rowlands, midwife, gave cor- roborative evidence.—An order of 4s. per week and costs was made. Caming.-D,ivid John James, Al- bert Veal, and Samuel Phillips, all of Aberaman, were each fined 5s. for gaming with cards.—P.C.

Pay os. each. Shops Order.John W. Hurt was summoned for selling fish, other than fresh fish, after nine o'clock at night. Sergeant Bevan described a visit which he paid to the local market shortly after 9 p.m. There was a big muster of people at the stall, and the defendant was doing a roaring trade.—Mr. Hurt: Was 1 busvP—Witness: Very.—Mr. Hurt: What was I selling Witness: I saw you selling red herring. — Mr. Hurt: I maintain that I have a right to sell after nine o'clock.—The Sti- pendiary What right have you in face of that Order?—Inspector Grif- fiths testified that he had already warned the defendant against selling after the proper time, and that the latter had promised to see to it that it would not occur again.—A fine of 20s. was imposed. All's Well, etc.—Mr. Charles Ken- shole drew the attention of the Bench to a case where the Powell DufFryn Company were the plaintiffs and a number of men engaged at the River Level, Abernant, were the de- fendants. The present was the first dispute which had arisen between the parties since the company took over the pit about two years ago, but tlio company were anxious that friendly relations should exist between them and their employes, with the result that he (Mr. Kenshole) wrote to Mr W. P. Nicholas, Pontypridd, the legal representative of the work- men, to the effect that the company were quite prepared to withdraw the summonses if an undertaking were given by the men that any future dispute would be referred to the re- presentatives of the two sides and then, failing a settlement, to the company's agent and the miners' agent.-In intimating that the men had accepted his .advice to entertain the proposal of the company, Mr. Nicholas explained that his clients reciprocated the good and kindly feeling which inspired the company, and which they would endeavour to foster in the future.—The Stipen- diary I congratulate the parties on having arrived at suchVa satisfactory settlement, and I sincerely hope that this happy spirit will always prevail between the employers and their employes.
Hirwain Case Referred Back. It will be recalled that some months ago, Benjamin Lewis, a haulier at the Tower Colliery, Hir- wain, was summoned for having a match in his possession in the work- ings. Evidence was given for the prosecution by Daniel Jones, the manager, who appealed to the High Court against the dismissal of the summons. The court above reversed the decision of the local magistrates, and referred the case back. Mr. Charles Kenshole was for the company, and Mr. Nicholas repre- sented the defendant. The Stipendiary: Unless Mr. Nicholas can submit further evi- dence, we are, in face of the findings of the court above, bound to con- vict. Mr. Nicholas Having regard to all the circumstances, I would respect- fully. submit that the inference should be drawn that the match had not been placed in his pocket by the defendant himself. If you find against me upon the question of fact, I think that, in mitigation, I am en- titled to the view that the match could only have been in his pocket by inadvertence. The Stipendiary: After hearing the evidence of both sides, I came to the conclusion that the match was found in the pocket of the defendant. 1 had grave doubts whether, in these circumstances, we should be justified in convicting the defendant of hav- ing the match in his possession with- in the meaning of Section 35 of the Act, the wording of which, in my opinion, is jumbled and confused. The summons was, therefore, dis- missed. 1 regard their lordships' judgment, however, as a direction to us to convict, unless the defendant can prove that the match was dropped in his pocket by some other person. The defendant offers no evidence on that point, and we must, therefore, act on the ruling of the court above. The -case-is not one calling for an exceptional penalty. At the most his offence was nothing more than an oversight, and, for .that reason, the small penalty of 10s. will be adequate.
Rats or Beer? Rhoda Evans, landlady of the Bridgend Inn, Aberdare, was sum- moned for supplying during prohibit- ed hours, and Hem'y Sexton and John Sexton were summoned for aid.. ing and abetting. Mr. St. John Francis Williams (in- structed by Mr. William Thomas) appeared for the defendants. Sergeant Bevan explained how he, accompanied by P.C. Banks, kept observation on the premises for some hours, during which Henry Sexton and John Sexton entered the yard leading to the public-house, and Mrs. Evans came out, carrying a frail. P.C. Banks eventually found a bottle of stout placed behind an ash cart. Witness approached the Sextons, who told him that they were there to do some "ratting." Asked how they accounted for the bottle of stout which had been found, they denied all knowledge of it. ine landlady was subsequently seen, and replied that the two men had come to see her husband. She had not served them with the bottle of stout. —P.C. Banks corroborated. After a long hearing the Stipen- diary remarked that the crux of the case lay in the point as to whetner the bottle of stout had been deposit- ed by the landlady. There was, however, some doubt on the point, and he did not think that lie would be justified in convicting on the strength of the evidence which had been tendered. Still, the circum- stances were very suspicious, and the police were justified in having the case thoroughly investigated. The summonses were dismissed. Damage. William Jones and John Thomas, two Albanian youths, were summoned for damr.ging grow- ing trees, the property of Mr. i). P. Davies, J.P., Ynyslwyd.—P.C. Mor- gan proved the case, and Air. Grif- fith Davies prosecuted.—The defend- ants were each fined 6s.
Children and Cinemas. Magistrates by Majority Confirm Previous Decision. At a Separate Court an applica- tion was made by Mr. D. W. Jones, Merthyr, on behalf of the Abercynon Workmen's Hall, for an extension of half-an-hour for the presence of chil- dren at entertainments. The Magistrates present' were Col. M. Morgan (chairman), Messrs. F. W. Mander, L. N. Williams, Frank Hodges, Thomas Jones, Wm. Hees, J H. Powell, W. Fenwick and Illtyd Hopkins. Mr. W. R. Morgan, on behalf of the Aberdare District Coun- cil and Education' Committee, sup- ported by Mr. T. Botting, Director of Education, opposedl the applica- tion. Mr. D. W. Jones, in the course of his opening, said that the show was run by the workmen, and the balance sheet for la-st year showed a loss of tlls Is. 9d. The committee had 'tried a 7-9 p.m. performance, but those hours were inconvenient, and they now started at 7.30. At pres- ent there was a condition made by the magistrates that children, even when accompanied by their parents, must leave at 9 p.m., and his appli- cation was for an extension of half an hour, thus making the time at which children should leave 9.30 p.m. He wished to point out 'that the Hall was maintained by a poundage deducted from workmen's wages, and boys of 13, who worked on the col- liery surface, were subject to that poundage. They therefore had the spectacle of boys who were liable to pay towards the hall, being preclud- ed from attending after 9 p.m. That was a great hardship. Chairman Is it absolutely neces- sary to have music there Mr. Jones: Yes. There is a very, good orchestra there, and there are musical turns Mr. Jones, continuing, said. work- men's wives had no maids to leave their children with in the evenings, and they naturally accompanied them to the entertainments. Cnder present conditions they had to leave before the end, and it was a well- known fact that the cream of the en- tertainment was near the end. The hall was well ventilated, and there could be no harm in children attend- ing. He was only asking for an extra half-an-hour. The Mountain Ash Council had granted licences without any conditions, and it was that Council who were the local health authority. They had never imposed any conditions. Chairman: They sometimes dic- tate to the Bench. (Laughter.) Mr. Thomas Jones: I should like to qualify Mr. Jones' statement. The majority of the Council have j not imposed any conditions. Mr. D. W. Jones proceeded to say that it appeared that j • t > the Aberdare Education Authori- ty had passed a resolution. After all, was it just even for the children themselves to have this rule applied against them. It was said that attendance at halls and cinemas in the evenings unfitted them for school the following morn- ing. But children were at school only 5 days a week, whereas they were prohibited from attending cinemas on Friday and Saturday evenings; also prohibited during holidays, which amounted to some- thing like a fourth of the year. He trusted that the magistrates would remove the conditions. Alfred Pugh, manager of the Hall, said that the building was often let free of charge for charitable objects. Cantatas and entertainments were held by chapels there. Mr. W. Rees How long do those performances take? Witness: From 2V to 3 hours. Mr. W. R. Morgan, on rising to cross-examine the witness, was ob- jected to by Mr. Jones, who pointed out that Abercynon was not in the Aberdare District. Chairman: That is so, and it is simply a matter, of courtesy to allow Mr. Morgan to appear at all. Mr. Morgan then put certain questions re the- balance sheet sub- mitted, maintaining that on the pro- per expenditure there was a profit 'made of £ 17. George Ferguson, Abercynon, chairman of the Hall Committee, gave further evidence. The Magistrates deliberated in pri- vate for some time. Co], Morgan afterwards announced that they had resolved by a majority to confirm their previous decision, viz., no chil- dren to be in a place of amusement after 7 p.m. unless accompanied by a parent or guardian, and not after 9 p.m. even when accompanied by parent or guardian. The rehearing arose as the result of a mandamus granted by the High Court some time ago.

So I had to stop in the middle of the shelling to i unhoop the dead horse, after which I took my wagon-load of shells up to the guns with a horse shot. And for what I did I have had the Military Medal."
