SWANSEA. THE WEST GLAMORGAN AGRICULTCRALSOCIKTT. —In addition to the particulars published yester- day, we learn that the financial result of the fat stock and poultry show held at Swansea Jai' Christmas was a balance of £ 22 6s 4d against the society, but towards this there are unpaid sub- scriptions which will leave a small balance in favour of the society. Alderman Jones (the Mayor) gave £ 50 towards the funds, and ac nounced his iutention of getting many of his fellow-townsmen to respond liberally to the appeal for funds necessary to make the horse show to be beld in the mmmer a fuccesi;. THE LANHORE DISTRESS FU.ND.-It has been decided by the relief committee that no further appeal for funds shall be made, and the subscrip- tion list is consequently closed. The balance- sheet will be issued in a few days. THE SUNDAY CLOSING -AC-r.-Speakiiaz at the weekly meeting of the Gospel Temperance Union, Councillor Martin said allowing that Sunday drinking at the Mumbles had increased since the passing of the Sunday Closing Act, they should not judge the whole principality by that one case. From statistics he possessed he was of opinion that around the Swansea district the Sunday Closing Act had been a grand success. Captain Colquhoun had said he thought the act was a failure at Swansea because since it had been in operation the number of cases of Sunday drunkenness had increased. He had also stated that the police had received orders not to arrest any intoxicated person as long ah he couid stagger home, or was in charge of a friend. He (Ioe speaker) could easily there- fore explaiu the cause of the increase by suggesting that those who went to the Mumbles for drink generally went without friends, and were therefore arrested. SUNDAY DRINKING.—At the police-court on j Monday, Julius Uuur, of the Horse nnd Crown was suminoneci for the above offence on 22rd December and 6th January. Mr Maudes- ley prosecuted and Mr Glascodine, iniitrucced by Mr T. G. Richards, defended.—It appeared tbat the police watched the howe ou the date in question.—Defendant denied that be had supplied any woman with beer. or that he knew anything of the supply.—The Stipendiary said the igno- rance of defendant was simply pretence, for as clear a case bad been proved of Sunday trading as he had ever heard. It should be known to the holders of licensed premises who were inclined to break the lawl that the law stands differently now from what it used to, the justices being now able t" take away licenses at their discretion.—A fioe of 25 was imposed. STEALING PIGEONS.—On Monday, at the police- court, John Daniel Regel-R (12), Foxhole-court; Edward Rogers (8), of t.h«* »sme address; and Thomas Norman (14), 56, Foxhole-road, were charged with entering a pigeou house and stealing therefrom two pigeons, valu@d at 2. Rees Charles, aged 13, and living at 9, Freemau's-row, Foxhole, said he saw his five pIg-eons all safe on Friday night. They were in a coop fastened by a lock m the back. Two and a half hours later he found two of the pigeons had disappeared. He went to Rogers' house, and saw them there in a box. They were handed out to witness by G. E. Rogers, the other boys not being present at the tims.-Waiter Fisher (16) said that about aight o'clock he was near the last witness's house, and saw Normau standing on a heap of rubbish at the back, whence the pigeons were taken. -P.C. Ford deposed to having arrested the prisoners, and in rtiply to the charge the elder Rogers said, I broke tho lock, but my brother stole the pieons. TlIB Stipendiary said that E. Rogers was too young to be charged criminally, ana he ordered hiin to be released from custody! ij The elder Rogers pleaded guilty, but Norman not guilty. The former was ordered to receive six strokes with the birch rod, and the letter was discharged. CHAPMAN'S STUDIO, High-street, will be open all the Christmas holidays.
