WHERE IS THE DOG? At, Conway on Monday, Arthur Potts, of Rhos-on-Sea, was charged with being illegally at the North-Western Hotel, Llandudno Junction, on Sunday, Novem- ber 7th, at 9 15 p.m. Police Constable Williams said he found the defendant in the room behind the bar. Having seen him there almost every Sunday, the witness asked him what business it was that brought him in Z-1 that direction almost every Sunday. At first Potts said he had brought a pony to try to sell it. Then he said he had come to meet a veterinary surgeon, whose name he gave. Afterwards he stated that he had broken a pony for a Deganwy gentleman. Asked where the pony was, he replied that the gentleman had taken it away, and later on he said he did not know who the gentleman was. The officer then told him that if he could not; give a reasonahle explanation of his business there every Sunday he would be reported as not a bona-fide traveller. Eventually Potts returned to Colwvn Bay by the mail train at half-past nine. The defendant I was drinking a glass of beer when the officer came in. I had walked from Colwyn Bay, and wanted re- freshment. I had: walked to Talyca-fn to look for a. dog which I had lost, and I walked from Talyca-fn to Llandudno Junc- tion, thinking I would probably see some- one at the Junction H-o ted who would tell me something about it. There were seven or eight others there from Colwyn Bay, and had I to tell my business before them all? I do not consider that I had. As a matter of fact, early in the morning I had a pony that was very lame, and I wanted it unnerved, and I thought I would come to Llandudno Junction to look for the dog, and see the veterinary surgeon if he called there. or go on to Conway.. Why does the policeman tackle me. and not the other Colwyn Bay men ? Deputy Chief Constable Rees Do you come to look for a dog every Sunday? (Laughter.) The Defendant: No. The Deputy Chief Constable You have been going there every Sunday. The defendant: Excuse me; I don't. I was not there yesterday.-(Laughtr.) I was a, bona-fide traveller, on business. The Deputy Chief Constable (address- ing the Bench) If it an occasional Sunday, I would take no notice of it; but this man makes a practice of com- ing every Sunday. The defendant was fined 2s. 6d. and costs.
