Earl of Durjraven's Property. SOCIALISM AT TREHERBERT. When they are at home, Elijah Evans, Thos. James Collins, and John Conelly, reside at Gelli, where they are engaged in the peaceful art of gathering rags and bones, or, to express the same thing in a more genteel way, they are marine storn dealers. This is no doubt a very honourable calling, but its pursuit seems to have imbued this virtuous trio with strong Socialis- tic views, which, however, sometimes get them into (troubfle. Unfortunately, the lawmakers of our land do not favour Socialists. Now the other day—July 28th, to be particular-Elijah and his two colleagues visited Treherbert, where, it would appear, they were suspected of having put into practice their all-men-are-equal views, by helping themselves to certain of the Eari of Dunraven's goods. They were introduced to Mr Ignatius Williams, and a full Bench at Porth Thursday, and were asked to explain away a charge of stealing a quantity of iron, the pro- perty of Lord Dunraven and others, from the Dunraven Colliery. J. Saunders, the former cashier at the colliery, said that the colliery was now idle. He was in charge of the pro- perty. Iron and other material were continually being missed from the siding. His attention had been drawn to the property in ouestion by P.S. Davies, and he identfied it as that missed from, the colliery siding. P.S. Davies said the three defendants were in Bute street, Treherbert, on the 21st ult. They had a waggon. and on sus- pecting its contents he discovered several pieces of iron, which he subsequently found to be the property of Lord Dunraven. The defendants said that the iron was found on the ash tip, and not on the colliery siding as stated. Evans and Conellv denied having stolen the iron, but Collins pleaded guilty to the theft. Collins was fined JE1, the other defendants were discharged.
