♦ MOLD. ASSAULTING A WOMAN. At a Special Sessions Court on Monday, before Messrs. Thomas Parry and Henry Lloyd Jones, Thomas Edwards, chimney sweeper, of Church-road, Buckley, was charged under warrant with assaulting his wife, Catherine Edwards.—The prosecutrix said her husband had promised to behave better in the future, and she wished to withdraw the warrant.—The defendant Yes, gentlemen, I'll sign the pledge and never touch drink any more.—Superintendent Davies: He always promises to sign the pledge when before the justices. He promised to do so last Monday at Wrexham, and next day he committed the assault, the subject of the present charge.— After some deliberation, the justices decided to hear the evidence, whereupon the complainant stated that on the previous Tuesday her hus- band was drunk. As she had been obliged only the previous day to pay a fine and costs on his account at Wrexham, she remonstrated with him. He immediately rushed towards her, kicked her all over the body and cut her lip, which she had to get stitched.—The Justices retired to consider their decision, and upon returning to court the Chairman called the attention of the defendant to the serious nature of his offence, adding that he was lucky not to be standing there on a graver charge. There were a large number of previous convictions against him, and he must go to gaol for 14 days, The defendant: What's going to become of my pony and cart by the time I come out ?—The complainant here produced documents, including a receipt signed by James Lilly, purporting to shew that the pony and cart were her exclusive property.—The Justices said they could not interfere in the matter.—The defendant (em- phatically) Then I might as well tell you she isn't my wife, and never was !-Complainant admitted this was the truth, the husband had deserted her 21 years ago, since which time she had cohabited with defendant, and been a good wife to him.' PRESENTATION TO MB. T. M. DOBSON.-At the Royal Oak Hotel on Friday evening, the friends of Mr. T. M. Dobson, joint hon. secretary of the cricket club, assembled in large numbers to take leave of a sportsman and a gentleman' on the occasion of his departure from Mold. Mr. J. B. Marston was voted to the chair. Midway in the proceedings the chairman intimated that the object of the meeting was to present their friend Mr. Dobson with a small token of their regard on the occasion of his departure from Mold. They all regretted his departure, but must avoid taking a selfish view of the situation, and they all hoped he was leaving to better himself. (Applause). He paid a high tribute to ,the character of Mr. Uobson, and concluded by expressing the hope that their friend would long be spared to enjoy the gift he was receiving, and which he hoped would bring back happy memories of his sojourn in Mold. The chairman then handed to Mr. Dobson a case of silver-mounted pipes, the exterior of which bore on a silver plate the inscription: Presented to Mr. T. M. Dobson by his Meld friends, 10th September, 1897.' The testimonial was accompanied by a box contain- ing a pound of the recipient's favourite tobacco. Captain T. M. Keene, the officer commanding the A (Mold) Company of the 2nd Vol. Batt. of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, spoke of Mr. Dobson as a sergeant in his company. Since he had joined the company Dobson had known his work as well as any man in the regiment, and everything he took in hand he did thoroughly. (Applause.) Fortunately for them the company had not to deplore the loss of Sergeant Dobson as the cricketers were doing, as he understood he was not severing his con- nection with the corps-Mr. Edward Jones and Mr. Edwin Roberts also bore tribute to the personal worth of Mr. Dobson, who subsequently responded.
