MOLD PETTY SESSIONS. ♦- MONDAY.—Before Messrs. P. A. Lloyd (in the chair), Thomas Parry, and W. Catherall. LICENSING APPLICATION. A temporary authority was applied for and granted to Jonathan Shone, Black Diamond Inn, Tryddyn. THE FIRST TIME OF ASKING.—John Simon, tinplate worker, admitted a charge of being drunk and disorderly in High-street on the night of the 28th ult. This being his first offence, the defendant was ordered to pay 6s. costs. NOT BONA FlDE.-Edward Peters, collier, of Buckley, was summoned for being on licensed premises during prohibited hours. Sergeant J: D. Hughes (Coed Talon) stated that at nine p.m. on Sunday, the 15th ult., he visited the Bridge Inn, at Pontblyddyn, kept by Thomas Marsh. He entered the parlour and there found the defendant and another man. Defendant had a pint jug before him, and when asked what he was doing there, he replied that he had business with a man named Robert Williams. Witness measured the nearest public road from defendant's home to the Bridge Inn, and found it was two miles and 1,232 yards.-P.C. Edward Davies (Buckley) gave corroborative evidence as to the measure- ment. Defendant pleaded that on the evening in question he had walked some distance and was fatigued. He had no intention of evading the law.—Fined Is. and costs. ALLEGED FRAUDULENT REMOVAL OF GOODS. -Adam Hughes, a bricklayer, employed at Trelogan Mine, was summoned by John Phillips Jones for removing his furniture from a house at Maesydre, in order to avoid distraint for rent. Mr. J. B. Marston appeared for the defendant. Complainant deposed that the defendant had occupied a house belonging to him at Maeaydre. The rent was paid irregularly, and there was now about E10 due as arrears. About the 7th August defendant left the house, and when he (complainant) next called, all the furniture had been removed. On the previous Saturday defendant offered him 10s. a month, and admitted taking the goods away without proper notice. The court was empowered to give him an order for double the value of the goods removed, and he now asked for an order for that amount (£5). He proposed to recover the balance in the County Court.-After cross-examination of the com- plainant, Mr. Marston, for the defence, said the defendant s family were formerly the owners of the property in question, and that for 15 years defendant had been tenant to Jones. He had paid his rent regularly until latterly, and tor this reason Jones was anxious to get rid of him. Hearing this, and getting work at Trelogan, where his brother resided, defendant went there, leaving his furniture behind and the key of the house with a neighbour. He informed his neighbours that he intended to leave, and did not take his furniture away till afterwards, having first sent a message to Hugh Jones, complainant's local agent. He (Mr. Marston) contended that there was no moonlight flit 'aspect in the case, and there was a total absence of fraudulent and clandes- tine' removal to bring it within the section.— After hearing the defendant and two witnesses, their Worships adjourned the case for the attendance of Hugh Jones and other witnesses.
