Special Sessions. CONWAY, SATURDAY, JANUARY IITH.-Before Henry Kneeshaw, Esq. (Chairman); Albert Wood, Esq.; and Councillor Dr R. Arthur-Prichard. ALLEGED FALSE PRETENCES. A respectable-looking man named Charles Stewart, described as a bicycle-dealer, and living at 232 Grantham Road, Dalston, London, was brought up on remand on a charge of receiving under false pretences, from Frank Ellis Wood- head, of Oakfield, near Conway, the sum of £ ,6 igs.-P.S. Rees said that Mr Woodhead saw an advertisement in The Morning Leader, offering a bicycle for sale. After some correspondence with the defendant, Mr Woodhead sent a Postal Order to the defendant, who sent him the bicycle on approval. On the bicycle being returned as unsatisfactory, Mr Woodhead applied for the return ot his money, when he received a letter (in the handwriting of the prisoner, but purporting to be from the prisoner's brother) saying that the prisoner had gone to America, refusing to take delivery of the bicycle, and ridiculing the idea of upsetting the bargain and returning the money.— Mr David A. Romain (Stoke Newington, London) asked that the police-officer, as he was not a pro- perly qualified advocate, should not be allowed to re-examine the witnesses. He was not unlikely to ask questions ina manner not in accordance with the rules of evidence. He (Mr Romain) wished to say that the police had been most kind and courteous. —The Bench said that they would keep a careful look-out that the police-officer did not transgress in the matter Mr Romain was afraid-of.—Freder- ick William Coucher, advertisement-clerk of The Morning Leader, produced (and gave evidence as to receiving on November 5th) the manuscript of the advertisement which appeared in the paper of the following day. On December 3rd the adver- tisement was re-inserted, with an alteration of price. The prisoner had done business at the witness's office for the last two seasons, to the witness's knowledge, and he believed previously. The witness produced, as received bv post (in the ordinary course of business) from the prisoner the cutting of the advertisement to be altered. Cross-examined, the witness said that there were six advertisement-clerks at his office. He could not say whether he received the advertise- ment personally, or whether he had seen it prior to receiving the subpoena. He searched for the advertisement "copy among the files of "copy"; and—so far as he kiiew,-that was the first time he had seen it.—Frank Ellis Woodhead said that he resided at Oakfields, near Llandudno Junction. He saw the advertisement produced in The Morn- ing Leader of December 3rd, and on that date (or on the day following) he wrote to the address given, and in reply he received the letter pro- duced, dated December 6th, 1895 and signed C. Stewart." On December 7th, the witness sent a letter to the defendant, and enclosed a Post Office Order for £ 6 19s. The witness then received the letter produced, dated December 9th, and signed "C. Stewart." On December 11th, the machine arrived, and the witness called for it at the Junction Station, and mounted it to ride it home. On arriving at Oakfields, he sent a boy with the machine to the Junction, to return it to the defendant by the next train. He wrote a letter to the defendant, and in reply received the letter produced, dated December 12th. and signed "J. Stewart." He then communicated with the police. The witness was induced to send for the machine by the advertisement, and particularly by the statement that the bicycle was a Whitworth, and he knew the Whitworths to be good machines. He did not know whether the bicycle he received was a Whitworth. Cross- examined, the witness said that he had been a bicyclist for thirteen years. He had bought three machines, and he had sold one. He had bought one machine through an advertisement. About December 3rd the witness was consulting The Morning Leader and other newspapers, to see the bicycle advertisements. He did not know whether there was such a machine as the Whitworth Model," and he thought that that meant that it was one of the Whitworth's Com- pany's make. There was no stop in the adver- tisement between any of the words in the des- scription "Whitworth Model Pneumatic." The witness had not noticed that there were many advertisements in which the word "genuine" was used. —Hare Mr Romain explained that the word genuine was used to indicate that a machine was made by the maker whose name was used.—In further cross-examination, Mr Woodhead said that on December 5th, he wrote a letter to the prisoner, asking him to let him have the bicycle on approval, or he would buy the bicycle outright if the prisoner would return the money should the bicycle prove unsatisfactory on a week's trial. The witness did not think it neces- sary to make inquiries about the bicycle, when he was allowed the machine on a week's approval.— Mr Roinain here got the police to produce the machine, and to read the name of the makers Kingsland Manufacturing Company, London, England." In further cross-examination, Mr Woodhead said that he objected to the machine because it did not appear to be sound. The crank was not firm, and the right pedal more than O ice went round without the wheel going round. The witness's trial of the machine was along a mile of roadway, and there was about forty yards of hill. The witness wrote to the defendant that the machine was altogether unsatisfactory. If any machine had exhibited the defects that machine did, he would have returned it.—Albert Morgan, a clerk in the employ of Mr Forest, 184a Cambridge Road, London, said that on December 20th he went to the prisoner, and procured from him the document produced, undertaking not to manufacture on his (the prisoner's) premises. He saw the prisoner write the document. Cross- examined, the witness said that Mr Forest was the landlord of the defendant's premises (a house a id shop), which were let at L48 a year and taxes. The rent was paid three months in ad- vance. The reference the witness got with the prisoner was a good one. The letting was a temporary one, the prisoner offered the rent in advance, and the landlord accepted it. -John McBlain, foreman in the employ of the Rudge- Whitworth Co., Holborn Viaduct, London, said that he had been fourteen years with the Rudge people. He saw, at Dalton station, on January 6th, the machine produced, and it did not corres- pond with the impression that would generally be given by the desdription Whitworth Model Pneumatic "in the advertisement now shown to him. There was no such machine as the Whit- worth Model Pneumatic." The machine produced, would cost about £5 to manufacture, and the selling-price would be about L7 when new. The lamp was not suitable for that machine, but for a high bicycle. The machine was made up of a cheap sort of tyre, cheap sort of fittings, etc. The Whitworth people made a special point of their bearings, the high finish of the machine, and the detachable chain wheel, none of which the machine produced had.—Cross-examined, the witness said that he did not think that the Whit- worth Company would be satisfied with so small a profit as the difference between £ T) and £7. Whitworth had not a patent of their machine's general outline. Their machine was practically the Humber frame. Every small maker would try to copy Whitworth or Humber. The witness's firm called their machines by the name Whit- worth coupled with a distinguishing number. The machine produced had the outline of the Whitworth, excepting in details.-P.S. William Rees (i i) stationed at Llandudno, said that on the 6th inst. he received the prisoner from the London police, at Hackney Police-Station. In reply to the warrant, the prisoner said, If he was a straitforward man, he would have summoned me and not have issued a warrant." The prisoner was then in custody. The witness then said It is alleged that you sent a letter in another hand- writing, saying that you had gone to America. Mr Romain here objected to evidence being given of what the prisoner said in answer, and cited as grounds for his objection the rulings in The Queen v. Male and in The Queen v Gaviii.-The magi- strates reserved the point, and Sergeant Rees said that the prisoner said that he had written the letter, but that his solicitor had said that it would be all right.—In answer to the Bench, Sergeant Rees said that the prisoner made his statement voluntarily.—For the defence, Mr Romain submit- ted that it was a purely merchantile case, in which the parties should be left to take their own remedy.—The Bench intimated that there was in their opinion a case to be answered.—Mr Romain addressing the Bench, said that his client was a picture-dealer and cycle-dealer. As to the ma- chine's description as a Whitworth Model," that did not imply that it was a kv hitnvortli, but that it was an imitation of the Whitworth machines. As to the further statement in the advertisement, "worth thirty-five pounds," mere puffery or undue praise was not an offence.- The Bench intimated that there were other points in the case which were of more importance to their mind.—Mr Romain said that, if he demolished the false pre- tences, the case would collapse. He compared the alleged false pretences with those in The Queen v. Bryan, in which the Court for Crown Cases Reserved decided that the conviction must be quashed. The alleged false pretences in Bryan's case, were infinitely stronger than in the present case. The defects in the machine mayor may not have been caused in transit. Whatever passed subsequently, was immaterial to the ques- tion of falsa pretence. The machine was re- turned to the defendant, who did not accept delivery he might have kept both machine and money, had he intended to swindle. But he refused to take in the machine because it was in bad order. It was a matter for the County Court, and not for criminal proceedings.—The Bench, after retirement, said that it was a suspi- cious case, but said there was a doubt, and they would ive the prisoner the benefit of the doubt. -Mr Romain said that his client would return the money.—The Bench said that they could make no order.—The prisoner was then released, and Mr Romain paid over to Mr Woodhead- the £6 i gs.
Inquest at the Denbigh Infirmary. THE LLYSFAEN ACCIDENT. On Thursday morning, January 9th, the De i- bighshire Coroner (Dr. J. R. Hughes) held an inquest, at the Denbigh Infirmary, on the body of William Williams, (quarryman, Llysfaen), whose death resulted from an accident he met-with on December 30th. William Williams, the deceased's father, a quarryman living at Erw Llewelyn, Llysfaen, identified the body. He did not see the accident. Elias Davies, quarryman, Ocean View, Old Colwyn, said that he was one of a gang of six who worked in the quarry. On the 30th December, he was with two other men and, about half past eleven, he saw one William Roberts moving the stone which fell on the deceased. The latter appeared to be watching the stone about five vardi from the spot where they expected it to fall. The witness saw him jump sharply to get out of the way, and, in so doing, he fell, and the stone fell upon him. The witness saw that the decease I was very much hurt, and made the necessarv arrangements 10 remove him. The witness and others adopted first-aid, and put him on the stretcher, and carried the deceased into the office. The stone weighed about a ton. It did not go over the body, the legs only having been crushed by it. The doctor was sent for as soon as possible, and Dr. Morris arrived soon after twelve o'clock. The deceased was taken to Denbigh Infirmary in a spring shandry, the distance being about seven- teen miles. Cross-examined by the Coroner, the witness said that the stone they were moving was about a yard from the shelf they were working. When the stone was loosened, it fell on the shelf and rolled on the deceased, who was lying down. The witness had been a quarryman for 30 years. but never saw a similar accident. They worked the quarry above the level of their feet, a.j worked the stone towards them. They have no fixed rules as to how the stone is thrown. Reply- ing to the Jury, the witness said that the rock was blasted when necessary. THE stone was loosened by blasting. William Roberts, 6, Colwyn Terrace, Old Colwyn, said that he was working with deceased on the day in question. The witness was shifting the stone, the deceased being at the time on the ground underneath. The stone rolled down, and he found William Williams under it. The witness had been a quarryman for 22 years, and had never seen a similar accident. There were n> fixed rules for moving the stones after the rock had been blasted. The blast would be about ten. feet above the level of the ground where they were working. The men worked on different beds at the same time. The stone would have to fall about ten feet, and would drop upon rock. Joseph Ashton, House Surgeon at the Denbigh Infirmary, said that the patient arrived there about seven o'clock, and was at once attended-to by him. He was placed in splints and was found to be in a fair condition after the journey. Th witness sent for the assistance of Dr. Lloyd Roberts, one of the honorary surgeons of the Institution. They found deceased suffering from compound comminated fracture of the left leg also, simple fracture of right thigh. There were no sign of other injuries. The witness did not look upon the case as being serious then. There was slight congestion of the lung on Tuesday morning and on the Wednesday morning, the patient changed for the worse. He thought that the cause of death was due to shock, with severe congestion of the lungs. Alexander Duncan, manager of the Llysfaen Quarries for the last 12 years, said that he con- sidered the deceased, who had been working in the quarries from boyhood, an intelligent and sober man. The men were working there in a regular way, moving the refuse of the blast on a higher ledge. The witness wished to express the proprietor's regret at the occurrence. The Coroner expressed his regret at having to call the jury so early, but the body had to be removed by train. He was sure that they all sympathised, as he did, with all concerned in the accident. The men had used every care in work- ing. They knew by the evidence that the deceased was fully alive to his danger, and fell in jumping aside. The man was perfectly sober at the tima. The men had evidently not transgressed any of the rules of the quarry. He had no doubt that the jury would agree with him that a proper verdict would be that of accidental death. The Jury returned a verdict of "Accidental Death."
Conway and Llandudno County Court. CONWAY, THURSDAY, JANUARY 9TH.Before His Honour Judge Sir Horatio Lloyd. A COLWYN BAY CASE. Thomas Davies, carriage-proprietor, Colwyn Bay, was ]sued by Messrs. Williams and Co., of the same place, for the recovery of LiS, balance of an account due for provender and groceries sold.—Mr. Nunn was for the plaintiffs, and Mr. James Porter for the defendant, who set up that he had paid all that was due, and that his account, which was a running one extending over some years, had been fully discharged. He further alleged that he had not been given credit for £ 10 paid in January last year.—The defendant's wife was called to prove that she had paid for all the groceries, with the exception of about ilos., for which no billln.d been received.—Judgment was given for the plaintiffs for 14s. 3d. (admitted to be due), His Honour allowing costs on that amount, as it ought to have been paid into Court. A TENANCY AGREEMENT. W. J. Owen, Bryniau Farm, saed William Roberts, Newborough-terrace, Conway. for £ 15 for cartage. The claim was admitted, a set off of £9. 12s. 4d. being made on account of cash paid, the balance being paid into Court.—Mr. Roberts (Llanrwst), was for the plaintiff, and Mr. James Porter for the defendant.—The plaintiff is the tenant of the defendant, and under an agreement, he was bound to pay half-yearly, with the rent, a sovereign for cartage, until the £ 9. 12s. advanced had been discharged. The plaintiff, it was stated, was about to leave.—His Honour held that both parties were bound by the agreement, which it was said was not prepared by a solicitor, and entered judgment for the plaintiff for Z 13 10s. less the sum paid into Court.
