-— Obscene Language at Railway Stations. PROSECUTION AT CAERPHILLY." "IT IS SIMPLT DISGUSTING." At the Caerphilly Police Court on Tuesday- before Alderman Henry Anthony, Dr Maurice G. Evans, and Mr David Davies-George Hill, a Newport- engine driver, was summoned for committing a breach of the Rhymney Railway Company's bye-laws. Police-sergeant Thomas Williams, lSfn, said that while he and P.C. Williams were con- veying prisoners by train to Cardiff on the 19th July, one of the female prisoners, who was the worse for drink, became very stupid, and in the Caerphilly station the officers were compelled to take her by force. Defendant came behind, and pulled the prisoner back. He used very obscene language, and said, "That is the b- old sergeant that made me pay L2 for assaulting Detective WilSams." Foreman-porter Herbert Hicks corroborated. Defendant said he was drunk,and knew nothing about it. He was very sorry, but he himself had requested the prisoner in ftie train to desist from using obscene language. Inspector David Wiliiams, who appeared for the Company, pressed the charge, saying t\"t bad language was on the increasetat the com- pany's stations. Alderman Anthony: Yes; it's time it was put down, because it is simply disgusting. Dr Maurice Evans: You put forward a plea of drunkenness, and you get drunk because you buried your wife. A fine of 10s and costewas imposed.
