Mr Morgan Richards, fireman, deposed to having found a lamp key in prisoner's possession, and also to seeing him opening the lamp with same. Replying to the Bench prisoner said he was sorry that he was caught. Mr D. W. Davies: I should think so. It might have been the means of sending hundreds into eternity. Mr Danl. Eynon, manager at the Bwllfa Colliery, now identified the key produced as belonging to the Company. Prisoner had formerly warked at Llwynypia, and was quite accustomed to the underground rules. Witness further added that it was very pro- vident ihat prisoner had opened the lamp at the bottom of the pit. Had he not been detected,. he probably would have done so further in the mine with a disastrous result. Mr E. H. Davies: He must have stolen the key from the lamp room. Mr Eynon: Yes, of course.

Inspector Bendford of the R.N.S.P.C.A. again conducted the case on behalf of the society. It will be remembered that the case was heard a fortnight ago at the same court when: owing to the conflicting evidence given by the vetrinary surgeons en- gaged in the case, it was adjourned in order that two of the magistrates (Aid. W. Morgan and Mr J. D. Williams) might examine the cow. Mr J. D. Williams now said that they had examined the cow and had found it lame on the front leg. It was in a fairly good condi- tion, and taking the eircumstanceel of the case into consideration there had. in their opinion, been no special neglect as regards the feeding ù. the cow. They had therefore both: agreed that the case should be dismissed. -+-
