THE DEFINITION OF BONA-FIDE. The Three Miles Limit No Protection. At the Pontypridd Police Court on Wednesday —before the Stipendiary and other magistrates— Thomas Griffiths, Thomas James, Edmund Jones, William Lloyd, Llewelyn Jones, William Thomas Evan Rowlands, Edward Evans, William His- cock, and Daniel Thomas, labourers and col- liers, hailing from Porth and Hafod. were charged with unlawfully being on licensed pre- mises on the 1st inst. P.S. Stibbs stated that about twenty minutes to four on Sunday, the 1st inst., he was on duty on the Cardiff road, Rhydyfelen, when he no- ticed some one open the front door of the Crown Inn. He saw the landlord and landlady come outside, and when the latter saw witness she turned to her husband, and exclaimed in Welsh, "lie is coming." Witness asked if there were any bonafides in the inn, and received the reply, "Yes, a few." On going inside he saw ten men there, and several vessels containing beer in front of them. Witness asked the men if they would have come to Rhydyfelen if the public- houses were open in Hafcd that day, and one of them replied, "No, not likely!" The landlord then came in and said, "Why didn't you tell the policeman the same as vou told mè, that you came down on husiness At six o'clock the same evening witness saw two of the men, DI. Thomas and Rowlands, at Upper Boat, stagger- ing about the road drunk. Lloyd stated that they had not gone there for the purpose of drinking. They saw the (.oor open anl asked if they could have a little re- freshment. The landlord asked, "Where arc you going to?" and they replied that they were going down a little further. Several of the defendants averred that they had not gone there for the purpose of drinking, but some had no explanation to offer. The Stipendiary: Five cf the men ^ave no ex- planation. Taking the most onerous possible view of the proceedings we think it is necessary to fine six of the men. You know the state of the law in the matter, ar. 1 the fact that a man has come beyond the three miles limit is no protection at all. Some of vou have -;vcii ex- cuses, and we have no means of rebut tins: them, so cn this occasion we are willinar to adopt them. William Thomas, William Lloyd, Edmund Jones, and Thomas GrifTHhs. were then dis- missed; Hisccek was fined 5s. and Daniel Thoma.s, Evan Rowlands, Edward Evans. Llew- ellyn Jones, and Thomas James, 10s each.
