A CEMETERY OUTRAGE. COFFIN BROKEN OPEN. An outrage of an astounding character was discovered on Saturday to have been com- mitted at the mausoleum owned by Sir Wil- liam Lewis at Cefn Cemetery, near Merthyr. During Friday night the place was entered, the coffin of the late Lady Lewis removed from its slab. and the lid broken open. In forcing an entrance an outer gate of mas- sive ornamental metal work had been wrenched open and a hole made in a thick door of oak. It was found that the coffin of Lady Lewis. who died in October, 1902, had been lifted from its slab and placed on the floor. The lid was prized open, and the breast-plate of the coffin shattered. The operator seems to have ceased his work at this point, and probably fled. The shroud had not been touched. The question pf motive in regard to the desecration of the vault in Cefn Cemetery is not considered to have been for the purpose of obtaining jewels or rings, as there- was no 1. J, tampering with the shfoiid. There is a sug- gestion that the outrage was the outcome v,iiidictive,,feeliiag. l Something has been said about the inter- ference lately with a wreath which was laid upon the grave of Sir William's kinsman, Col. D. Rees Lewis and about the removal of flowers also from the grave by persons who declined to replace -them when- spoken to, -but a deliberate outrage like that Qf Friday night, is not associated with them. Sir William has o'ffetcd a reward of L20 for ,the discovery of the, offenders.
