Begging Nuisance at Rhyl. Bench Determined to End It. The Rhyl Bench are determined to put a stop to the begging nuisance. On Friday Messrs W Elwy Williams and J H Ellis had before them a soldierly looking man named Thomas Clarke, who said he was a tinsmith, and lived at 9 Circus-street, Liverpool. He was charged with begging. According to the evidence of Annie Roberts, a servant at 2 East Parade, the man called at the house in the morning and asked to see the mistress. On being told that she was too busy, he said she was not too busy to see him, and when she came he begged. Later in the day he did the same thing, and because he was refused he used disgusting language. P.S. Roberts said he did the same thing at another house. P.C. Williams said he arrested the man because he was drunk and disorderly and refused to leave the town. The prisoner pleaded that he was only singing and had met comrades from the Guards, and had had drink. In sending him for 14 days hard labour, the Bench said they were determined to stop the begging nuisance, and they thanked Miss Roberts for coming to court. On Monday before Messrs J H Ellis and G A Taverner, Patrick Nolan of Warring- ton, was sent to gaol for 14 days with hard labour for begging, and another man, James Kelly of Dublin, went for a like period for a similar offence. He was drunk and stop- ing people. Mr J H Ellis said he hoped the men would tell their friends that the Rhyl Bench were determined to put down begging with a firm hand.
