The inscription on the service was Presented to Mr H. T. Mauger, C.O., R.N., on his leaving Tenby, As a small token of regard by his friends—October 13th, 1909." A heavy gale from the S.S.E. blew at Tenby all day last Thursday, accompanied by heavy rain. The sea in Carmarthen Bay ran high. A small boat from Caldey Island, with one man, got adrift in the roadstead, and another boat with a crew of four men went to her assis- tance. Ultimately the Caldey steamer Firefly got up steam in Tenby Harbour and went to the rescue, towing both boats back to the island and landing their crews. We have this week received from Messrs. Macmillan, the well-known publishers of London and New York, a parcel of the new sevenpenny series of popular novels, which are a marvellous combination of cheapness and ex- cellence. The books are daintly got up, good clear type and nice paper, and the authors whose works are treated in this way are essen- tially representative of the field of high-class literature. The price of each book is seven- pence nett, and copies may be purchased at any of the local booksellers. The steam trawler Magnolia., of Milford, put back into dock and reported the loss of the third hand, James Bennett (24), a native of Swansea. The man only came from that port on Wednesday and was shipped next day. On Saturday he was missed, and one of the crew saw him struggling in the water. The boat was lowered and a life belt was thrown out, but al- though he swam strongly and cried aloud for help, it was impossible to reach him in time and he perished. The trawling gear was down at the time. The affair happened on the fishing ground, 70 miles west of St. Ann's. Mr W. H. Thomas, hon. secretary of the Tenby Fire Brigade, acknowledges with thanks the receipt of the following subscriptions:—Mr Clement J. Williams, J.P., £2 2s. Messrs. Stokes and Stokes, jSl Is.

At the Central Hall, Tenby, yesterday (Wed- nesday), Mr Joseph Stower, auctioneer, London, offered for sale the Rock Houses, the Wheat- sheaf Inn, Tenby, and a dwelling house and cottage residence at Manorbier, all being formerly the property of Miss Phillips of Rock Houses.

The bidding for the Wheatsheaf started at £300 and the property was withdrawn at JS950.

TENBY FISHING COMPETITIONS. '8!. THE COMMITTEE'S REPORT. The committee (Messrs. J. H. Thomas and Richard Davies) responsible for the promotion of the successful fishing competitions of the past season have just submitted the following report to the Tenby Tradesmen's Association:- GENTLEMEN,—We beg to submit a, report of the Tenby Fishing Competitions held last summer on the Royal Victoria Pier, together with vouchers and a statement of receipts and expenditure. We also enclose a cheque, JE11 10s., balance in hand. When you did us the honour last July of inviting us to undertake this work, we did so with some misgiving, for we doubted whether we were able to maintain the popularity these events had at- tained in previous years through the successful efforts of Mr Gardiner, Mr W. H. Phillips, and Mr F. W. Gregory. Sixteen competitions were held. Four of these were for visitors only, one for juveniles, and a special for a silver cup presented by Mr Charles D. Allen, the cup to become the property of the competitor winning it twice. The total number of competitors was 518, and the approximate value of the prizes was a little over £25. The following ladies and gentlemen kindly gave prizes:— Visitors—Mr Charles D. Allen (cup and prizes value JE5), Mr Mottram, Mrs. Mottram, Mr Keep, Mrs Keep, Rev. — Eales, Dr. Herepath, and Mr Howarth. Residellts-The Rector, The Mayor, Deputy Mayor (2), Messrs. C. J. Williams (2), C. W. R. Stokes, R. Lock, J. Leach, W. Howells, C. J. Hoffmann, S. G. Rogers, W. H. Thomas, Morris Brothers, J. E. Arnett, F. B. Mason, George Lord (2), J. Hodges, senior, J. Hodges, junior, George Ace, W. Joseph, E. Palrper, T. P. Hughes, T. Angel, A. F. Roblin, Ivy Gibbs, and the Exors. of the late S. Davies. The Allen cup was won by the Mayor, and we suggest that he should be custodian of it until the expiration of his term of office, when it should be taken charge of by your Association. During the season frequent complaints were made on the Pier by competitors and spectators of the lack of conveniences. The want of a ladies' lavatory, a shelter, and chairs was especially felt. We venture to hope that if this matter was brought to the notice of the proper authority there would be no recurrence of these complaints. We cannot speak too highly of the valuable assistance rendered us by the Harbour Master; indeed, but for the co-operation of Mr Bowen it would have been difficult, if not impossible, to have arranged competitions latter than the first week in September. J. HENRY THOMAS, RICH. DAYIES. A unanimous vote of thanks was passed at the meeting at which the above report was read to Mr Davies and Mr Thomas for carrying out the arrangements on behalf of the Association in such a highly creditable manner.
MOTOR SMASH AT TENBY. SIR THOMAS MEYRICK'S CHAUFFEUR SUMMONED. At the Tenby Police Court on Monday morning before the Mayor (Councillor C. Farley) Messrs. B. Harries, J. Leach, R. H. Tuck and F. N. Railton, a motor car chauffeur named George Aaron I.eetham, in the employ of Sir Thomas Meyrick, of Bush, Pembroke, was summoned by Police Sergeant Thomas with driving a car on the Narberth and Tenby Road in a manner dangerous to the public on September 18th. Mr R. D. Gilbertson, solicitor, Pembroke, appeared for the defendant. The first witness called for the prosecution by the police was William Powell, rural postman, Hillside, Begelly, who stated that on the 18th of last month, he was proceeding to Tenby in a pony and trap accompanied by his wife, brother and child. They were all riding in the trap, and when near the Three Bells on the Tenby side, near Mrs Watkins's cottage, his brother saw a motor car coming behind them and put up his hand. Wit- ness then stopped the pony and dismounted. The reason why he did this was because there was a motor car coming behind. It was in consequence of his brother putting up his hand that he (wit- ness) pulled on one side. The side of the road he pulled up to was the left, and he pulled as near as he possibly could to the hedge. A motor car came along and ran into the rear of the trap, which was stationary at the time. The result of the collision was that they were all thrown to the ground out of the trap. The baby was thrown near the front wheel of the motor. Mr Gilbertson-I think the name baby is misleading. I am instructed that it is a child seven or eight years old. Witness—The child has just turned three. Myself, wife and brother were thrown at the rear of the trap and all fell back there. I lit first of all on the car on the left-hand side. We were all slightly injured and very much shocked. The members of my family have since been attended medically as the result of the injuries and shock received that day. The trap was damaged. For a fortnight I have not been able to follow my occupation. When the car collided with the trap it stopped immediately. I don't suggest that it was going at an excessive speed. If it had not stopped immediately it would have run over the child it would have been impossible to avoid it. The child was by the side of the front wheel. I spoke to the defendant after I picked myself up and asked him why he ran into us, and he said I pulled across the road. As a matter of fact, I did not pull across the road. If I had he could not have collided with the trap in the matter he did. If the trap had been across the road he would have struck the pony. I took the number of his car, which was "X 1259," and it proceeded to- wards Tenby. At the particular spot where the collision took place there was sufficient room for the motor car to have passed on my right. There was ample room. The reason why the man col- lided with me was because he was incompetent. I suggest that as a reason for the collision. If the chauffeur had been a competent man and not negligent he would not have collided with me it would have been impossible for him to have done so. Therefore I say that there must have been great negligence on his part. The car having moved on towards Tenby I marked the position of it and the trap at the time of the collision with some tar, which I got from Mrs Watkins. I did this in the presence of Mrs Watkins. Later in the afternoon I saw Sergeant Thomas at Tenby and made a complaint to him. I told him that the chauffeur had wilfully run into me. Mr Gilbertson—That is not evidence, but I don't mind. Witness—Later in the afternoon I accompanied Sergeant Thomas to that particular spot where I showed him the mark I had made on the road with the tar and the position of both my trap and the motor car. I witnessed his taking measure- ments of the same and he took correct measure- ments. It was a beautiful day and clear, the roads being dry and dusty. Mr Gilbertson (cross-examining)—What time was this. Witness—Three forty p.m. Did you look at your watch ?—Yes, just before. Before you come to the Three Bells there is a turn in the road, I think some little way back; a corner ?—Yes. You did hear the hooters of the car coming before you saw it, I think ?—No, sir. Do you mean to tell us that you didn't hear any hooter sounding before your brother saw the car ?—Yes. Will you swear that ?—I will swear it. I put it to you that the hooters were going before you got round the corner ?-They were not. That you swear ?—I will swear. Tell us how far the car was off when you first knew it was there ?—About fifty yards. You were then on your proper near side of the road ?—Yes. As near as you could go ?—Yes. Then there was no need for you to pull in any' nearer ?—Not at all. But you told us you did, you know!—I don't think so. Yes you did, excuse me. Mr Tuck—There is a corner there? Mr Gilbertson-It is after the corner, some con- siderable distance. There is a corner, and after you get into a fairly straight run of road. By Mr Railton-It was the Tenby side of Mrs Watkins's gate that the affair happened. By Mr Leach—He knew the road well. Mr Gilbertson (continuing his cross-examina- tion)—Were you very nervous to find this car running behind you ?-No. Your horse is an old one, I think ?—No. How old ?—About six. Steady ?—Very. Used to motor-cars ?—Yes. I put it to you that your brother never put up his hand till the car was about four or five yards from you ?—Oh, yes, he did. You swear that ?—Yes. I put it to you that you pulled the wrong rein and pulled out into the middle of the road ? Absolutely wrong. I put it to you further, that on finding you had made a mistake you pulled back, as you said you had to pull into a corner of the road?—No, sir. What did you say as soon as you were out of the trap ?—" What are you doing Didn't you say to him, I want a new cart?"— Not at all. You will swear you never said that?—Yes. What damage did you suffer ?—A fortnight on the sick list. What was the shock ?—Severe ? What damage did your wife suffer ?—Severe. This is rather vague. Let the magistrates know something more definite than that. Had you any mark on you? What ?—Bruises on the arm and leg. Did you instruct a solicitor to write claiming JE31 damages for yourself; il2 19s. for your wife and P.18 9s. for your brother, as the result of this accident ?—Yes. This amounts to JE59 12s. ?-Yes. You think you will be satisfied if you get £ 59 12s. ?—I would try to be. (Laughter.) I have no doubt you would. Did you instruct for the three lots ?-Separately. Did you instruct a solicitor for the lot ?- Yes. By Mr Railton-The damages to the pony, cart, and harness were included in the JE31. Mr Gilbertson—I believe the driver and the 't man wno was sitting with him got out of the car after the accident ?—Yes. To see if they could help you?—They didn't offer any assistance. I suggest because there was no assistance re- quired?—No. What assistance was required ?-I was on the road to Tenby and left in the ditch. Did you leave the trap there ?—No, we did manage to take it up to the Bells. Did you leave it there ?—Yes. Did the defendant say to you Will your pony start if I start the engine going? ,-No. You deny that ?-I deny it absolutely. He never said a word. Did he ask you for your name ?-Yes. Then he did say a word ?-J ust that. You have been in trouble with motors before ?— Not me, sir. Never ?—Never. This is the first time. Didn't you have a collision at St. Issell's with a gentleman by the name of Heath ?;Not me. Who was it then ?-I know nothing. You don't know?—Nothing. Nor with a gentleman from Cardigan ?-I know nothing whatever about it, absolutely nothing. Did two women come up from the gate ?—Yes. Did they say anything about the car ?-They said it was their (the car's) fault. Did you hear the defendant ask these women for their names ?-No, I did not. Was the defendant present when you made these tar marks ?—Yes. Will you swear that ? —Yes. You told us that you stopped the pony and dis- mounted when you saw the car coming?—Yes. And you have also told us that the pony was accustomed to motor cars ?-Yes. I Did you expect the man to run into vou ?-Not at all. Then having a quiet pony used to motor cars how do you expect us to believe that you were going to dismount ?-I thought I heard another one in the opposite direction. A motor bike did come along. That is the first we have heard of this. But why did you dismount. You had a quiet pony and plenty of room. I put it to you that the trap moved and in going back into the middle of the road the wheel of the motor car caught you?- Absolutely wrong! We were on the left side. You thought it was necessary to dismount for fear of a collision ?—Yes. The car was going at an ordinary rate ?—Tea, not fast. And the only explanation you can give was the incompetency of the driver?—That is all I can give. Mr Railton-If the pony was quiet why did you put your hand up ? Witness-Because I heard a car coming in the opposite direction. I heard a hooter; it was a motor bicycle. Mr Railton If the pony was absolutely quiet there was no necessity to put your hand up. Ernest John Powell, collier, Stonepit, Begelly, and a brother of the last witness, corroborated in the main his evidence. They were all in the trap the baby being on its mother's knee. Near the Three Bells he looked round and saw a motor fol- lowing them. It was not going very fast. He put up his hand because his brother was going to jump down. At the moment of the collision the trap was standing still. His brother was thrown over the splashboard, and with his wife was hurt. They were all hurt more or less. There was no occasion for the driver of the car to have collided with the trap. He had sufficient room to pass them on the right. It was absolute negligence on the defendant's part that he collided with them. He stopped immediately after the collision; had he not done so it is possible that he would have run over the child. The driver said it was the fault of the trap that the collision had occurred because they were pulled across the road. They had not pulled across the road; they never moved. He was perfectly sure of that. In reply to Mr Railton, witness said the pony was not at all damaged. Mr Gilbertson (cross-examining)-Do I under- stand you to say that you did not hear the hooter of the car?—No. You told us that the first you noticed of it was when you looked round and saw it ?—Yes. If you didn't hear the hooter, tell the magis- trates what made you look round.—Nothing parti- cular made me look round. How far was the car from you when you put up your hand ?—Sixty or seventy yards. And there was no hooter going ?-No. I put it to you that when you put up your hand the car was about four or five yards off you ?-No. You swear that? Just think!—(After a long hesitation) No. Did your brother pull the wrong rein and put the trap out into the middle of the road ?-No. You are sure of that ?—Yes, he was not in the middle of the road at all. I suggest that when your brother found his mistake he pulled back into the near side of the road again ?—We were standing at the time; the motor ran into us. Did you expect the car to run into you ? Not at all. The pony is a quiet one ?—Yes. Used to motor cars ?—Yes. Will you explain to us, the pony being a quiet one and you not expecting to be run into, why you put up your hand ?-Because I thought I heard another car coming towards us. Supposing you did what necessity was there to pull up ?-In case we should meet the two at the same time. Was the other car in sight ?-I could not see it round the turning. So whatever happened this car must have passed you before the other car got up to you ?- No, sir. But the other one was not in sight ?-No. In the ordinary course this car must have passed you and got away before the other car reached you ?-I don't quite understand you. The other car was not in sight?—No. Again I ask you as a sensible man that if the car had not run into you it must have passed you before the other car came ?-Yes. Then I ask you again why did you pull up ?- In case. You were not very much hurt, I believe ?-No, sir. Were you as much hurt as your brother ?-No. How much do you assess the damages of your hurt at ? The Mayor—Are you claiming damages here to-day ? Sergeant Thomas-No. Mr Gilbertson contended that this had a bearing on the case, and he wished for certain purposes to bring it out in evidence. Continuing his cross-examination of the witness Mr Gilbertson asked-You told us that the pony was not hurt at all ?—Not at all. Can you explain why your brother has in- structed a solicitor to ask for jE14 damages for in. jury to horse? (No answer). Can you explain ?—No. Neither can I. Did your brother ask you after the accident Are you hurt ? "-Yes. Did you say No ? "-No, I didn't. Will you swear that ?—Yes. What did you say ?—I told him that I had hurt my head. Did you tell him that you had hurt your head just think a bit.-Yes Mrs Lizzie Watkins, Myrtle Cottage, Narberth Road, called for the prosecution, said she heard a smash outside her house on the afternoon in ques- tion and went to see. She saw that a trap and motor car had collided. The men were standing and the woman had just got up off the ground; the baby had been picked up. Just before the smash she saw this trap passing, and saw some- one in it put up his hand. After the motor left for Tenby she saw Powell mark the road with tar. He marked it in the identical spot where the mark of the motor car wheel was. He had the tar from her. Mr Gilbertson (cross-examining)—You didn't see the actual collision?—No. Mr Powell has told us that it was a few yards from your gate; how far?—About five or six yards. You told the Sergeant that Powell marked the car mark in the identical spot ?—Yes. But you didn't see it strike ?-The mark of the car was there. Police Sergeant Alfred Thomas, giving evidence said that on the day in question he received a complaint from the first witness that a driver of a motor car, identification, X 1259, bad wilfully run into his trap and smashed him up near the Three Bells, and that he had marked the position of his trap and the motor with tar. He proceeded to the spot accompanied by the two Powells and William Powell showed him the tar mark which was placed on the highway anything within ten yards from the little gate that enters Myrtle Cottage, the residence of Mrs Watkins. Witness measured the width of the road at this particular place; it was 15 feet from water course to water course, and from the tar mark to the right hand side of the road proceeding towards Tenby nine feet. From the tar mark on the left hand side of the road proceeding towards Tenby the distance was six feet. Therefore anything that passed the trap on its right must have had nine clear feet to pass in. Mr Gilbertson addressing the Bench for the defence, contended that the occurrence was a pure accident, for which Powell was to blame as he drew the wrong rein and brought the pony in to the middle of the road, thus leaving no room for the defendant's motor to pass. The defendant giving evidence on his own be. half, said he had been in the employ of Sir Thomas Meyrick for twelve months, and had been driving his cars during that time. He bad had 5 £ years experience of road driving. On HousTto^P 1 WaS driYing a Car from Bush use t0 lenby, leaving at a quarter to three, and arriving in the garage at a quarter past four. About a mile from Tenby he saw the first witness driving a pony and cart. Frederick Burnett footman at Bush House, was seated alongside of him (defendant), and inside the car were the Misses Meyrick. The car was going a moderate pace. There were two hooters on the car, one on each side, and both were sounded before they came up to Powell's cart. The cart was on the proper side of the road as they were cominc up it, but when about four or five yards awav a signal was made by Powells brother who put up his hand to stop. It then seemed as if Powell got hold of the wrong rein and pulled his horse out into the middle of the road. As soon as he was signalled to stop he put both brakes on. The front wheel of the car struck the rim of the cart wheel, as it had pulled so far out into the middle of the road that there was no room to poss. By Mr Itailtou-He could have pulled up car in five or six yards. Frederick Burnett having corroborated the de. fendant, the Bench retired and upon returning in: to court lined defendant three guineas and costs. 0
