The Duffryn Dowlais Farm Feud. ♦ Brecon Tom" at the Assizes. The Alleged Attempted Murder- A HEAVY SENTENCE. At the Glamorgan Assizes on Thursday, Thomas Morgan (44Brecon Tom") butcher, Pontypridd,lwas charged with attempted murder of Thomas Howells, Duffryn Dowlais farm, Llantwit, on the 11th October last. After hear- ing the evidence, which was practically the same as that given in the" Free Press" at the time, the jury found prisoner guilty of an assault, with intent to do grievous bodily harm. In pronouncing sentence the Judge said it was quite clear that prisoner was a very dangerous person, for a man who could not control his temper, as seemed to be prisoner's case, and, having lost it, behaved in the way prisoner had behaved, was a great danger to society. If it were only an ordinary violent temper prisoner had no excuse, but he (his Lordship) bed had in his mind the point as to whether prisoner was not one of those persons who were on the border line of insanity, and hardly wholly responsible for his actions. If there was any foundation for that doubt, and if he sentenced prisoner to a long period of detention, as he would have to, he knew every care would be taken to ascertain how far there was any foundation for that doubt and if there should be any, prisoner would be treated properly and leniently according to his real condition. Prisoner, who had been previously convicted of manslaughter, was sentenced to penal servitude for five years. ?
