REVISION COURT AT PONTYPOOL. On Thursday morning Mr. William Edward Mirehouse, barrister-at-law, held a court for the revision of the lists of voters for Glascoed, Goytre, Llanfrechfa Upper, Llanhilleth, Llan- vair-Kilgeddin, Llanvihangel-Pontymoile. Mam- hilad, Panteg, and Trevethin (exclusive of the portions within the Abersychan and Blat navon Local Board districts).—Mr. I. Gardner, Aber- gavenny, appeared for the Conservatives, and Mr. Luther Davies, Abergavenny for the Liberals.-There were very few people present, the assistant-overseers of the different parishes forming by far the largest proportion of the audience. In the list of voters for the parish of Llanhilleth the overseer objected to the name of a Mr. Lewis on the ground that he was dead.— Mr Gardner said this man was not dead. The person who had died was the claimant S father, and he now applied to have his name inserted in the list of voters in consequence of his father's death.—The Overseer then admitted he had made a mistake, but said there was a fresh objec- tion, which he had not entered, viz., that the de- scription of the qualifying property was wrong. He had property in the district, but the pro- perty stated as a qualification had been sold, and he had no further interest in it.—The I Revising Barrister said the case was this, Was the overseer, having made a wrong objection, entitled to alter that objection to another ? He I knew no one else had, but the question was, Could the overseer do so ? Would the gentle- I men see if there was anything in the Act authorising that ?—Mr. Gardner and Mr. Davies then said they could not see anything in the Act bearing upon that point.—The Revising Bar- rister then said unless Mr. Davies could satisfy him that he was bound by the Act to do so he would not strike the name off.—Mr. Davies: Well, sir, if you think it is unfair I withdraw my objection. The man certainly has qualify- ing property in the district.—The Revising Bar- rister Very well, then the name remains on. In the lodgers' list for Panteg Mr. Gardner objected to the name of Mr. William Powell remaining on the list. The man was simply a servant, and lived in his master's house. I —Mr. Davies sought to prove that the man was not a servant but a tenant, and paid rent for the room.—Mr. Powell, who was then called, said he did not pay reflt for the two rooms. It was deducted from his salary.—In answer to the Revising Barrister, the witness, however, admitted that he was a servant, and that his master could order him about as he liked. In answer to a further question, the wit- ness said he thought the room would be worth, if unfurnished, about 2s. or 2s. 6d. a week.—The Revising Barrister (to Mr. Davies): Do you still prefer your claim ? I hardly think you should do so. The man has literally cut his own throat.—After a little further discussion, it was intimated that the. name should be erased from the list. Mr. Gardner objected to the elaim of Mr. Israel Williams in the list of voters for Llan- frechfa Uppef, on the ground that he had left the neighbourhood, and there was no known address.—The Overseer said Mr. Williams had BTO Barrow. — Mr. G. H. Daniel said he ht that if the address was altered to Mr. Williams, iron works, Barrow," a letter would find him.—Mr. Gardner That's rather a wide address.—The Revising Barrister I quite agree with Mr. Daniel that a letter would reach him if that is the claimant's real address.—Mr. Daniel: I am quite sure, air.-The address was accordingly altered, and the name remained on. There were no other cases of interest.
