The Chairman ( tddressing the Reporter) said It might perhaps be thought that we are doing an unusual thing in acting in the absence of the de- fendant. But we think we are doivg the best under the circumstances. The case by the woman against the man has been before us several times, and we have each time discussed it fuliv. sn that have the facts substantially before us, and therefore think that no hardship will be done by acceding to the man's request, and reducing the order from four shillings to three shillings a week. B. iberts I cannot possibly pay three ehillings a week. ° The Chairman You must try. SCHOOL CASES. In the charges of neglect in sending their child- ren to school against Robert Hughes, Vale road, and Edward ovah, pointer, medical certificates were produced, shewing the children to be ill. The cases were therefore dismissed. Mr Edward Jones, School Attendance Officer, ap- pi ed for warrants agaiust the following persons for neglecting to piy fines Joseph Parry, David Wil- liams, John Davies, Joseph Hughes Edward Morris, J .mes McElroy, AUen Jones, and Elizabeth HNzell til or Yale road. 7 QUARRELSOME NEIGHBOURS. Mary Jone>, Vale road, was charged by Margaret Jones, 29, Vale road, with having on the 28th Janu- ary, unlawfully assaulted her. The Complainant deposed that on the day in ques- tion defendant knocked her about, and pulled a quantity of hair (produced) from the skin of her head, and dragged her about for the distance of six yards. Defendant's boy afterwards struck her on various parts of the body. Hannah Davies and Betsy Jones, neighbours,gave corroborative evidence as to the assault. The Defendant could get no peace from the com- plainant, who was continually ejecting her children from a closet which she said all the occupiers of five houses in that neighbourhood had an equal right to. The Bench considered the case proved and inflicted a fine of one shilling and sixpence costs. The Defendant said she would not pay, and a war- rant was issued.
