Coovalezech The above name was brought beibtC the South Wales community, particularly of North Pembrokeshire people, by tie dariug robbery at Pautsaeson Mansion, for which he was sentenced at Haverfordwess to 9 months' hard labour. During his incarceration an- other charge was preferred, and at the Old Bailey on Tuesday last the man Johann Coovalezech (26), butler, was sentenced to five years' penal servitude for stealing £OO worth ot silver plate and jewellery belonging to his master. Prisoner, by means of false characters, obtained situations at gentlemen's hoilses in the West End, and after a short stay he disappeared, carrying off the plate and any jewellery he could Jay hands upon. Through the astuteness of the Pembroke- shire police the public have got rid of a dangerous alien for, at least, a few years, which is something to be thankful for.

Pembrokeshire Education Authority. FISHGUAUI) SCHOOLS. [r,Y OUR OWX KKPOltTEil. ] A meeting of the Education Committee of the Pembrokeshire County Council was held on Fri- day at the Shire Hail, Haverfordwest, Mr 8 13 Sketch presiding, and there were many other? present. Voluntary Schools Accommodation. At the last meeting of the Committee a resolu- tion was carried as to the provision of additional accommodation in non-provided schools where the number of children attending exceeded the number of school places, and the Board of Education weie asktd whether the local authority could compel the School Managers to provide the additional ac- commodation, or must it be provided by the authority. The Hoard of Education replied to the effect that the question of whether additional accommodation would have to be provided by the authority was a matter on which they could only express an opinion after being fully informed of the facts in any particular case, but it appeared to the Hoard of Education that the power of the local authority to require alterations and improvements of voluntary schools did not enable them to require an extension uf school buildings, so as to provide accommodation for a larger number of children than had already been recognised. The Chairman said it was a matter to be con- sidered by the Building Committee, to whom the letter was referred without comment. Defaulting Schools. At the last meeting a resolution was also adopted that a copy of a circular issued to correspondents of non-provided schools in October last be for- warded to the Board of Education, with an in- timation that as certain schools had not complied with the terms of the circular, the local education authority would be compelled to decline to recog- nise the school* whose managers were in default, and that the local authority would be glad to know if the iJouici of Education had any observa- tions to make on the subject. The Board now wrote that they did not under- stand the meaning of the iesolution, and were therefore unable to offer any observations on the subject. Section 7, sub-section 3, of the Act pro- vided that any question arising between managers and authorities should be determined by the Board of Education, and the authority could obtain the decision of the Board as to any particular school if any such question had arisen. The Chairman said the letter was very import- ant, and also very ambiguous. It was referred to the Building Committee without comment. Group ManAgers. Respecting a resolution from Group 3 (St. Ishmaels) asking that greater powers should be delegated to group manageis throughout the cjuuty, Dr Grilliths said he believed a gen- eral represent :tion would soon be made to the authority from all the group managers. Distiibution of Balances. The Finance Committee brought forward a recommendation that the balance of £640 standing to the credit of the late County Governing Body should be distributed amongst the county schools "8 follows Pembroke Duck, Tenby, £100; Narberth, £;)0; Cardigan, M0; Fishguard, £100; St Davids, £100; Gilford Haven, £100; Haver- forclwest, .£lOu, Mr Egerton opposed the recommendation, and said they had no right, under the scheme, to dissipate this -balance. He moved that it be re- ferred back, hut found no seconder. Mr \V T Davie said three of the schools, Pem- broke Dock, Narberth, and Cardigan, were not necessitous, and he moved be taken from them and divided among the remaining county schools. Mr J H Grifliths seconded the motion, but after some discussion it was withdrawn and the recom- mendation of the Finance Committee was ac- cepted. A Letterston Application. The Finance Committee considered an applica- tion from the Letterston non-provided school for payment of j;6 68 lid in respect of rent for the school house, and they advised that the Clerk should reply that the Education Authority has nothing to do with the rent of teachers' houses in non-provided schools. Fishguard Council School. The Finance Committee recommended that the sum of £40 10 be paid to the late managers of this school for furniture and stock. Mr Egerton Allen objected to this, and said it was not enough to tell him these things were thrashed out at the Finance Committee. He was not on the Committee, and he was supposed to get to know the reason of any vote he gave. The latepayers outside had also a light to know how their money waa expended. The Clerk explained that this was lately a British School. It had been passed over to the Authority as a council school, and the late man- agers would accept this sum for the furniture they would hand over. Mr Egerton Allen thought the furniture should form part of the arrangement, aud should be available for school purposes just as in any other elementary school. Mr W L \Y illiams said this had been done in other cases. in this case the money would go to the bank as a part of the current year's expenses. It would not go to the managers, but to the bank to pay an overdraft. Itev J Phillips If we had had to buy the fur- niture, we should have had to pay very much more. It is a cheap bargain. The Chairman said he thought the Committee had got a good bargain. The recommendation of the Finance Committee was adopted. Probationers and Pupil Teachers' Expenses. The Finance Committee recommended that pro- bationers' expenses for travelling, books, and stationery be paid to county managers as follows —Cardigan, £15 ü,;¡ :Zd; Tenby, f3 8s 10d,. St. David's, £838 4d; Fishguard, Xfi 19s 8<1 Taskers (Haverfordwest), £6 3s 2d. They further recom- mend that the travelling and lodging expenses of pupil teachers attending the following centres be paid :—Cardigan HI" Gd, Tenby .£21 83 4d, Fishguard £ 10 7d, Talkers ,(4 7 Gil, and arberth They further recommended that the sum of f35 a year be paid for the use of the Temperance Hall, Fishguard, for school purposes, from July Jst. Mr Egerton Allen objected but the recommen- dations were adopted. Technical Grants. The Finance Committee recommended payment of grants for technical subjects, being two-thirds of the claims submitted :—Cardigan, £64 58 4d; Milford Haven, £)2 5s 4d; Taskers, Htl 16s; Haverfordwest Grammar School, L51 Is 4d; Tenby, £78 10s 8d Fishguard, £7ü; 3.rbcrth, £S.11:s 4d St. David's, £95 Is 4d Pembroke Dock, £162 4s Haverfordwest Art Classes, £40 lis 4d.- Total, £786 8s 8d. There was a further protest from Mr Egerton Allen, but the amounts were voted. Fishguard New School. Mr Egerton Allen brought up the report of the Building Committee, which was to the effect that they had informed the Finance Committee of the preliminary estimate for the Fishguard new building. There were reasons why the estimate should not be made public, as it was not always advisable to give these particulars.—The report was adopted.

A Mathry Trap Accident. BOTH SIDIS WIN. At the Haverfordwest County Court last week John Reynolds, farmer, Treglemais, Letterston, sued R Phillips & Co., drapers, Mathry, Letterston, for £10 18s ûd. The plaintiff alleged that he sutlered damages to his dog-cart and harness caused by the defend- ants' servant negligently driving a waggon and horse on St. David's and Mathry road on March 13th. Defendants put in a counter- claim in which they alleged they had suffered damage in consequence of the plaintiff's horse and dog-cart colliding with the defendants' waggon through the plaintiff's negligence, and for which they claimed 18s—10s for a lamp broken, 6s for a broken harness, 2s for broken traces, &c.—Mr R T P Williams was for the plaintiff, and Mr W J Jones for the defendants. John Reynolds, Treglemais, chairman of the North Highway Board, said he was at a meeting of that body on March 13th, and was driving a horse and trap. The meeting was at Mathry, and when he was returning it was dark, but he did not look at his watch, so did not know the time. The ostler came with him a short distance, and he had then a level road. His lamps were lighted, and he was driving on the proper 35de of the road. When he saw the defendant coming he pulled his horse tight to the side of the road. There was a collision he should say there were three horses in the waggon, but he only saw one. His Honor You were not in the condition when you see double? (Laughter). Continuing, witness said that when he came round the first thing he did was to look for his hat. (Laughter). He did not know which way ho was looking for a time, but eventually recovered himself. The road was 14 or 15 feet wide at that place, his trap would take five feet, and the waggon six or seven feet. In cross-examination by Mr Jones witness said that he was never out of the public house where the meeting was held from the time the meeting closed till 8 o'clock. It was not true that he asked the ostler to come with him a little way because of his drunken state. It was true that after the accident, and after he had gone back to the public house, he called for drinks round, and they were not supplied. It could not be true that he was driving thoughtlessly, carelessly, nor negli- gently. Mr Jones I put it to you that you were driving so furiously at this corner that neither you nor the driver had a chance to avoid an accident. Plaintiff It is not true. I was never driv- ing so carefully in all my li/fe. In the course of further cross-examination by Mr Jones witness said that on the date named he might have had three or four drinks— certainly not seven or eight. (Laughter). He had been at many meetings where he did not have a drink at all. In re-exarpination witness said that there was no pretence for saying that ho was drunk on the occasion in question. James Griffiths, a neighbour of the plaintiff, said that on the morning following the accident he went to fetch Mr Reynolds' trap home, and could see by the prints in the roadway the way the conveyances had collided. Mr Reynolds' trap was evidently on the proper side of the road. A witness named Thomas Roch said he ac- companied the last witness, and he gave cor- roborative evidence as to what he observed with regard to the mark of the plaintiff's trap. Phillip Reynolds, son of the plaintiff, was called, and guvo similar evidence, and said that his father was quite sober when he came home on the night in question. This was the case for the plaintiff, and Mr Jones, for the defence, submitted that the driver could not be said to bo guilty of neg- ligence because he happened to be driving on the wrong side of the road. He submitted that the driver of the defendant's wagon was driving in the middle of the road, and with its lights well showing. The accident, he submitted, was caused by the negligent driving of the complainant. The complain- ant was he would prove, in snch a condition of drunkenness that he was incapable of properly driving his trap. James Price, a waggoner, employed by the defendant, said that on March 13th he had been driving out with a waggon load. He was returning home with his lamps lit, and, when near Mathry, saw a trap coming near him at a full trot. It was at a corner, and he pulled in as fast as he could. He also shouted out, but the driver of the trap took no notice, and ran into him. The collision then occurred, and the horses driven by witness bolted. In cross-examination witness said that he found the lamp belonging to his waggon in the waggon next day, but he denied a suggestion that it had never been lighted on the evening in question. He-suggested that it had been knocked out of the socket by the concussion of the collision. George Thomas gave evidence as to the last witness hrtving a light on his waggon when he passed Trevine on the evening in question. Lewis John, Trevine, gave corroborative evidence as to Price having a lighted lamp on his waggon on the evening in question. Thomas Griffiths, Wolfscastle, said that after the accident he saw the plaintiff, who was drunk. The landlady at the public house, he. said, refused to comply with Mr Reynold's demand for drinks, though he said he could claim them before all the policemen in the county. Jn cross-examination witness said that the landlady did not give any reason for refusing to supply drinks. Mr Reynolds could talk well, but could not walk. (Laughter). He did not think the refusal of the landlady was due to the fact that it was closing time. He was in the service of the defendants. John Charles gave corrobative evidence. The landlady did not comply with the call of the plaintiff for drinks round, but she did not say that she refused because he was drunk. Plaintiff could not walk stright owing to his drunken condition. George Davies, a youth, gave evidence as to the drunken condition of the plaintiff on the night in question. Mr Reynolds could not walk stright he was going from one side to the other. Cross-examined, he had been working with the defendant ever since the case took place but had not spoken to anybody about what occurred. Wm. Phillips and Samuel James, other youths in the same employ, and P.C. Phillips, gave further evidence in a similar manner. The last named witness said that from one hedge to the other where the accident took place was only 12ft. 4in. wide. The vehicles might have passed going steadily but driving at a great speed they might easily collide. The defendant was called and gave evidence as to the counterclaim. At the time of the accident he was away from home. His Honor eventually gave for the defend- ant on the claim and for the plaintiff on the counterclaim and allowed no costs on either side.
