ALLEGED WIFE DESERTION. At the Conway Police Court on Mon- day, before Dr. R. A. Prichard and other magistrates, Sarah Williams., wife of a plasterer named R,. J. Williams, charged her husband with deserting her, and claimed a separation order and main- tenance. She stated that her husband came home tipsy on June 13th, created a disutrbance, and then left her. He had not returned. Cross-examined by Mr Chamberlain, who appeared for the de- fence, the woman staled that she married Williams two years ago. She had five children by her previous husband, and none since the present marriage. When he worked her husband gave her the whole of his wages. Mr Chamberlain said he could not deny the desertion, but the woman, he said, had run Williams into debt. He could not live with her, and he had had to advertise that he would not be responsible for debits contracted by her. A great deal of sympathy was felt for the man, but he (Mr Chamberlain) had advised him that she wa,s his wife, and he must make pro- vision for her. If the allowance was too heavy the man would have no alternative but to leave the country. The Bench made an order directing the defendant to pay his wife 3s. a week.
