It was explained that defendant had gone away after the offence was committed, and only returned last week. A fine of 5s. and costs, 13s. fid. in all, was imposed.

Mr. Twigge Ellis applied for the full trans- fer of the licence of the Black Horse Inn to Mr. Thomas Price Roberts, and the applica- tion was granted. THE LARCENY OF A FERRETT. Robert Lloyd Hughes, Scotland-street, was charged with the larceny of a ferrett, the property of Mr. Percy Jones, London House, value 5s., on the 22nd October. The defendant pleaded guilty. The prosecutor stated that he was the owner of a ferrett and kept it down the entry at London House. He had not seen the ferrett for a week previous to it being missed, as he was away on his holidays, and had left it in charge of Ellis Owen. On the Monday after he returned he gave information to the police. P.C. Jones (50) stated that from informa- tion received from Ellis Owen, he proceeded to the defendant's house in company with P.C. Owen. He knocked at the door and was admitted by defendant's wife, who told them that defendant was in bed asleep. He found a ferrett in a a tin box. He then went upstairs and asked defendant to come down. This he did. He was asked to give an ex- planation about the ferret, and he replied that he found it in Ancaster-square, and had two or three witnesses to prove that. Wit- ness took him to the Police Station, and he again there made the same statement. The ferret had since been identified by prosecu- tor and Ellis Owen. A fine of 10s. and costs, or 14 days' hard labour, was imposed. IN PURSUIT OF CONIES. Thomas Williams (jun.), Penbryn Doget, was charged by William Hughes, gamekeeper to Mr. Norton, Penrhiwardwr, with being in pursuit of conies on Nantyglyn Isa' Farm. Mr. Twigge Ellis appeared for the prosecu- tion, and Mr. J. D. Jones defended. William Hughes stated that on the 25th October, at 7.30 a.m., he was on the Nanty- glyn Isa' Farm, when he saw the defendant coming there to examine snares, He bent down, and re-set one snare, and then came to a snare which was set opposite where witness was standing. Witness went over the fence, and said to defendant that it was a nice thing to do, and defendant admitted they were his snares, and said he would not have set them had he known that Mr. Norton had the shooting over the place. Witness then ac- companied defendant to look for more of them, and found nineteen, and a few days later he found four more. One was broken, and had pheasant feathers upon it. They were all fixed on the runs in a fence in one field. The defendant was about 400 yards away from his own house. He asked de- fendant if he had permission to catch rab- bits. By Mr. J. D. Jones: He had known de- fendant for two vears. He was a resnectable man. Mr. Norton had had the shooting over the farm for twelve months. He first saw the snares on Monday morning, and he went there at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, and found three bv lighting matches. He saw defendant re- set one. He did not know that defendant had had permission to kill rabbits on that farm for several years. He knew that Lynch Jones, Tafarn Fedw, was the one who had permissi m this year. The defendant having given evidence, Mr. J. D. Jones submitted that it was a trifling case. '1 he fact was that by the request of the farmer, defendant had permission to kill rabbits, which were a great pest to the farm- ers. He has had permission to kill rabbits on this farm for several years, and it was only on the Monday morning that he knew that Mr. Norton had the shooting over this farm. He was perfectly straight, and on Tuesday lie went there for the purpose of re- moving the snares. A fine of 5s. and costs was imposed.
