Ton-Pentne Police Count. Monday.—Before the Stipendiary (Mr. D. Lleufer Thomas), Alderman E. H. Davies, Alderman Wm. Morgan, Messrs. R. S. Griffiths and Enoch Davies. FEROCIOUS ATTACK ON POLICE. John M. Parry, a labourer, was brought up in custody charged with assaulting P.O. Harold J. Lewis at Pontypridd Police Station on Saturday. Prisoner, a well-built man, had his eye completely closed. The officer stated that on Saturday morning he brought prisoner from the cells to the charge-room of the Ponty- pridd Police Station preparatory to hand- cuffing him to two other prisoj\rs who were to be taken to Cardiff Prison. Prisoner was going down for fourteen days in default of paying a fine. With- out any warning prisoner struck witness in the stomach, causing him to stagger against the wall. He next aimed a blow at witness) face, which witness dodged. Prisoner next put his head down and rushed witness against the wall, and fastened his teeth in witness' trousers. He struggled and fought for some time on the floor, until, with the assistance of other constables, witness succeeded in handcuffing him. Corroborative evidence was' given by Inspector Salter, and prisoner was sen- tenced to one month's hard labour. CLYDACH VALE, STREET SCENE. Bert Hill, a. young Clydach Vale col- lier, was charged on remand with doing grievous bodily harm to Llewellyn Matthews, also of Clydach Vale. Mr. T. W. Lewis (Messrs. Lewis and Crockett, Pontypridd) appeared to prosecute. Llewellyn John Matthews, collier, 78, New Park Terrace, Clydach Vale, said that on Saturday, 28tli August last, he left home in the afternoon, and saw defen- dant about 9.30 near the White Hart Hotel, Tonypandy. Witness was accom- panied by a Mr. and Mrs. Snooks. He stopped to speak with defendant and asked him in fun if he (defendant) would toss for a half-pint of beer. He refused, and witness went down towards Trealaw. Witness started home from Tonypandy about 10.30 with Mr. and Mrs. Snooks, and called at the Royal Hotel just before stop-tap. When they got out of the Royal Hotel they proceeded up the road, and Mrs. Snooks went into a draper's shop, whilst Snooks left witness to buy fish and cliipe. Witness was standing on the pavement, waiting for the Snookses, when he was called by defendant. He went out into the roadway, and defen- dant then asked him to toss for 2s. worth of meat. Witness refused, and defendant then struck him, cutting his chin, and witness fell back and could not remember any more. He remained unconscious for about nine days. Cross-examined by defendant, witness denied that he offered to fight instead of toss. He made no attempt whatever to strike prisoner. Dr. T. L. Morgan, Clydach Vale, said he was called upon to attend upon Matthews on Saturday, 28th August. He had been brought to witness' surgery. He was afterwards taken home about "11.45. Prosecutor was placed on the table, and he vomited some food and some alcoholic liquid. He was perfectly. collapsed, and unconscious, and a peculiar thing about it, said witness, was that he had a sub- normal temperature which lasted for eight dayisi. His temperature was 92, and pulse 42. The examination of his skull revealed that below the inion there was a bruise, whilst his pupils were pin- pointed contracted. There was also a small clean-cut wound on the lower side of the jaw, about in. long. There was also a fracture on the inner table of the brain. Matthews had not yet fully recovered. In reply to the Stipendiary, witness said that if Matthews wanted to regain health, he should not touch a drop of alcoholic liquor in future. Proceeding with his evidence, witness said that after the eight days' uncon- sciousness prosecutor had fits of raving, and it was a fortnight before he became fully rational. Witness added that tie had a great amount of trouble with Matthews, and had to wait upon him seven or eight times a day. Jacob Edwards, 49, Under Marian Street, Clydach Vale, said that'on 28th August he saw Matthews and Hill about 11.15. They were then arguing in the middle of the road. He saw Hill strike prosecutor, and the latter fell, his head striking the ground. Witness picked him up ana put him on the side of the road. He was then unconscious, and after about half an hour he was carried home. On the way home they saw Dr. Morgan. John Lee, labourer, said that he had been in Hill's company on Saturday evening, 28th August, and had several glasses of beer in various public-houses. They met Matthews in Tonypandy, and the latter asked witness if he would toss for a quart of beer. Witness said that he would not toss in the street. Later in the evening, they again met Matthews in Clydach. Vale, and Hill then told him that he would toss him for a bob's worth of meat." Matthews replied that he would rather fight than toss. They then squared, up to fight, and Hill struck prosecutor, and the latter fell to the ground. Witness assisted in carrying him home. In reply to Mr. Lewis, witness said that Matthews did not strike the defen- dant at all. Evidence was also given by Mary Ann Edwards, wife of Jacob Edwards, and P.C. Hawkins repeated the evidence given by him at the first hearing. The charge was reduced to one of common assault. Inspector Salter said that defendant was a very respectable man, and apart from the present charge nothing was known against him. The Stipendiary said that they could not overlook the fact that Hill was guilty of an act which had and might have been still more serious to Matthews had it not been for the great attention paid to him by the doctor. At the same time, the Bench were of opinion there had been provocation. Defendant was fined E3, including costs. IN SEARCH OF CONIES." Geoffrey Evans, collier, Ystrad, was charged with trespassing on lands belong- ing to Tyntyla Farm, Ystrad, in search of conies. Thomas Williams, the landlord. said he saw defendant and another man watching rabbit holes. He knew the other man, who was fined at the Court three weeks ago for this offence, but did not know defendant's name and address until in- formed by a policeman., Defendant and his friend left six nets and a ferret I behind them, which had been confiscated by the order of the Court. Defendant denied that he was the person seen, as he was in work at the time. A fine of 40s., or one month's imprison- ment (Second Division), was imposed. Defendant accepted the alternative. POKER AS WEAPON. Albert Dickman, Bush Houses, Clydach Vale, summoned Josiah Thomas, a lodger in the same abode, for assault. Complainant said that about 11 p.m. Saturday, 11th inst., defendant came home in a bad temper, and after a con- versation, got up and hit complainant several times while he was in the chair. Defendant went out, and when he came in, again went for complainant, and caught him by the throat. Complainant's wife and daughter corro- borated the above story. Defendant said that after a conversation on the night in question, complainant took up the poker, and was going to hit defendant, when he rushed across and held complainant's arm and said that if lie did not put the poker down, he would hit him. Complainant did not obey, so witness hit him once or twice in self- defence. The case was adjourned for a week to enable defendant to call a witness. A TASTE FOR JOURNALISM. James John Martin, age 11, of Pentre was charged with stealing 22 dozen foot- ball Echoes from Ystrad Railway Station on the 4th September. Mr. Norman Ingledew, Cardiff, prosecuted for the Taff Vale Railway. Robert Ghest, publishing clerk in the employ of Messrs. Duncan, Cardiff, said that the two parcels of football "Echoes" had been sent to newsagents on the night in question. The two newsagents to whom the parcels were consigned, declared that they had not received them that night. Detectives Wilson and Roberts, in the employ of the Taff Vale Railway, proved the case. Defendant was ordered to receive six strokes with the birch rod.
What Interests Tonypandy More P What interests Tonypandy more than local happenings? The following Tony- pandy item will be interesting to all and helpful to many of us here. For over two years I was a sufferer from sharp, cutting pains in my back," says Mrs. E. A. Newton, of 152, Kenry Street, Tonypandy. "When I stooped I found it difficult to straighten myself again. My legs and ankles were swollen and painful and I was troubled with spells of dizziness, and could see little specks floating before my eyes. I tried different remedies, but it was only Doan's Backache Kidney Pills that gave me ease. I found relief after taking a few doses of these pills, and a short course of them did me a world of good, making me feel better in every way. I can speak highly of Doan's Pills. (Signed) Eliza A. Newton." Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are two shillings and ninepence per box, or six boxes for thirteen shillings and ninepence.

Porth Police Court. Thursday.—Before the Stipendiary (Mr. D. Lleufer Thomas), Messrs. Dd. Thomas and Wm. Evans. THE TYLORSTOWN SENSATION. William Brooks, collier, Tylorstown, was brought up in custody charged with doing grievous bodily harm to his ten- year-old daughter, Ivy Brooks, by cutting her throat with a razor. Inspector Williams produced a doctor's certificate to prove that complainant was too ill to appear, and applied for a fort- night's remand. A week's remand was granted. A VAGUE PROMISE. Evan Humphreys, collier, Penygraig, was charged with stealing a cabbage, the property of James Whitbread, green- grocer, 70, Tylacelyn Road, Penygraig. Prosecutor said that prisoner was brought to his shop by P.C. Cummings, and asked if prisoner had purchased the cabbage. Witness replied that he had not and gave him in charge. P.O. Cummings said that about 11.55 on Saturday evening; he saw prisoner take a cabbage from a board outside prose- cutor's shop, afterwards walking away in the direction of Williamstown. Witness followed, and in reply to questions, pri- soner said he had paid for the cabbage. Witness took him back to prosecutor's shop, and as the result of inquiry he was taken to the Tonypandy Police Station, where he was charged. In reply he said, I only picked it up." Prisoner now said that he was in drink, and on being urged to sign the pledge, prisoner said that he was willing to pro- mise not to get drunk again (laughter). A fine of 20s. was imnosed. SHOCKING CRUELTY TO PIGEON. Daniel Moon, a young married collier, of Ynyshir, was charged with gross cruelty to a pigeon. P.C. Mitchell said that he saw defen- dant deliberately set the bird on fire with some paper. The bird rose, but fell ex- hausted into another yard. All the feathers in the tail and on the breast, together with the one wing were burnt off. Defendant again caught the bird, and once more set fire to it. The bird was in great pain, and fell to the ground. Defendant pleaded that the pigeon was in the habit of straying, and he adopted this method to frighten it. He had no intention of setting it on fire. His Worship said that had he not been a married man with a child, he would be sent to prison without the option of a fine. He had shown no mercy to the bird, and he wished to warn him and other men having the care of animals or birds that such gross cruelty would be heavily punished. A fine of 20is. was imposed.

Tramcars for Clydach Vale. Public Meeting Demands Service. A public meeting was held at Gosen, Blaenclydach, on Monday evening to con- sider ways and means of having tram- cars, motor service, or some other cheap conveyance for the convenience of the inhabitants of Clydach Vale. Mr. D. J. Jones, Clydach Vale, presided. The pub- lished speakers were Councillors R. S. Griffiths, L. W. Llewelyn, and William Thomas, but a letter was received from Mr. Llewelyn regretting his inability to attend. The meeting proved to be very enthusiastic and heated, several minor debates cropping up as to the possibili- ties and impossibilities of a tramcar ser- vice at Clydach Vale. The Chairman introduced the subject and said they had a strong case, and could almost compel the Tramway Com- pany to run cars to Clydach Vale. He said it was chiefly Clydach Vale that made Mid-Rhondda, and why should Mid- Rhondda have cars and not Clydach Vale? If one desired to live in Clydach Vale he had to be a good walker, as there was no conveyance to take him to Tonypandy. Councillor W. Thomas said that the question of extending the tramway Her- vice to Clydach Vale was at present under the consideration of the District Council. He thought it hopeless for tramcars to run up the steep gradients, but cable tramways might be run. The cost, how- ever, would be much heavier; but cost ought not to be taken into consideration, but the convenience of the public (ap- plause). The investment might not be remunerative, but the District Council ought to be responsible for all deficiencies. Clydach Vale had for the past fifteen or twenty years been looking forward to some railway convenience. Mr. Evan James was of opinion they should pass a resolution asking the rate- payers not to pay rates until the Council had provided cheap conveyances. Almost every other place in the Rhondda Valley was served by tramcars. Mr. R. R. Williams (schoolmaster) said he heartily supported the movement, and suggested the formation of a committee to take the matter in hand. Councillor R. S. Griffiths said he would review the position briefly. Some people might be inclined to ask why he, as one who had a. great deal to do with present- ing Rhondda Urban District Council Bills in Parliament, had left Clydach Vale out of the tramcar section. The reason for this was that they did not want to over- burden the Bill, and so have it frustrated altogether. Parliament had to be satis- fied that the scheme would pay and not be any burden upon the ratepayers. When contending the Bill in London their arch- opponent had been the Taff Vale Railway Company, who engineerèd great opposi- tion, and secured influential men of the district to speak on their behalf. The Council also had the misfortune to have their Bill brought before a great Tory, who crippled it by not allowing the tram- ways to proceed until they had obtained a, lessee. The manager of the Tramway Company he proceeded, wa.s satisfied that Clydach Vale would pay as well as any other part of the, Rhondda. It had been decided to promote extensions of the ser- vice to Williamstown, Cwmparc, Blaen- rhondda, Mardy and Clydach Vale, but the Company were not prepared to con- struct more tramways until they had satisfied their shareholders that after a whole year's working the scheme was a success. If the money to construct was found, and wear and tear of roads paid for and no rent charged, the Company were willing to run trams to Clydach Vale.! But the engineer's report was against the service. There was no doubt but that it would pay, but the awkward angles and steep gradient rendered it im- possible. The undertaking was impossible until some new invention, for steep gradients had been patented. There was not a single member of the Council whs was not anxious that the service should be extended to Clydach Vale. The Coun- cil had done all in their power, and it was hopeless to push the matter further. A question was asked if tramcars could not be run, why not motor-'buses. Mr. Griffiths replied that this had not been considered, but the wear and tear would be rather prohibitive, as it would be five-fold more than on level ground. In reply to Mr. Davies (checkweigher), who asked whether the gradient could be lessened, Mr. Griffiths said this would practically mean acquiring the property along the road where the gradient would have to be lessened, but the Council were practically pledged to improve the road at the bottom of Blaenclydach. The Rev. T. E. Davies said that it was very inconvenient for children going to school at Porth or Tonypandy, and to everyone in general. He was of the same opinion as Mr. R. R. Williams, and moved that they form. a committee of six to further consider what steps could be taken. The motion was seconded and carried, and the following committee was appoin- ted —Councillor James, Evans, Messrs. R. R. Williams, Wilkinson. Noah Rees, Wm. Williams, and D. J. Jones. Councillor R. B. Griffiths also said he would put it to the Council, if it was not possible to sun cars, to provide the best possible conveniences.
