LOCAL OBITUARY. -A MRS. O. E. MAINLAND. With great regret we have to announce the death of Mrs Mainland, the wife of Mr G. E. Mainland, 14, The Norton, Tenby. The deceased lady, who had reached the age of 76, was the fourth daughter and last survivor of the family of the late Mr William Collingwood, of the Home Establishment of the Hon. East India Company. She had resided in Tenby for a number of years past, and had won the esteem of a large number of friends, who valued her many admirable per- sonal qualities. Mrs Mainland had a long illness in the early part of the year, from which she did not fully recover, and she passed away on Sunday morning last. Mr Mainland, who as honorary secretary of the Tenby .Cottage Hospital has done so much good for the town, and Miss Mainland, will have extended to them the deepest sympathy of all classes in Tenby in the great sorrow which has fallen upon them.—The funeral takes place this (Thursday) afternoon. On Sunday morning at the commencement of the service at the Parish Church a funeral march was played by the organist (Mr Cecil Williams, Mus. Bac.); and in the evening the bell-ringers of St. Mary's rang a mourning peal.
TENBY POLICE COURT. I!! MONDAY. Before the Mayor (Mr T. Tucker), Mr J. Leach and Mr C. Farley SCHOOL ATTENDANCE CASES. Mr Oliver Bancroft, School Attendance Officer, under the Pembrokeshire County Council, appeared in the adjourned case of Mrs Annie Morgans, who was charged with neglecting to school her child Florence. Mr Bancroft told the Bench that since the adjournment the child had missed twice a week (eight times in all). He asked that costs should be allowed, and the Bench agreed, the defendant being called upon to pay 6s. 6d. James Evans, labourer, Tenby, was also sum- moned by Mr Bancroft for failing to send his child Sidney to school, the Attendance Officer in- forming the Bench that the boy was ten years of age, and had attended 185 times out of a possible 241 from May to November, thus missing 56.- Defendant, in reply to the magistrates, said he had no reason to give for the non-attendance of his child in fact, it was a surprise to him when the summons came, as he thought the child was always in school, although is wife had told him that she had kept him home two or three times. Mr Bancroft said he warned Mrs Evans on July 24th, but not Mr Evans.—In reply to the Bench, the defendant said the child was not employed anywhere.—Mr Leach said it was a great pity he did not go to school more regularly.—The case was adjourned for a month to see if the atten- dance improved. SUNDAY TRADING. Gaetano Rapacioli, manager of Messrs. Rabaiotti Brothers' ice cream shop in St. Julian Street, Tenby, was charged by the police on three separate summonses with keeping his shop open on Sunday, and was fined 5s. and costs (5s. 6d.), in each case, the defendant smilingly depositing the money, all in small silver, on the clerk's desk before the particulars of the charge could be read out to him. UNLIGHTED BICYCLE. Da vid Henry Davies, errand boy, was summoned for riding an unlighted bicycle in St. George Street, Tenby, on October 21st. The defendant said his lamp was lighted when he came to the Five Arches, but went out after lie liad passed.- Superintendent Thomas said that was almost a plea of not guilty." It was decided to hear the evidence.—Police Constable James Rees (65) said on the date in question, about half-past six in the evening, he saw the defendant riding a bicycle without a light in St. George Street. He re- quested him to stop, which be did, and on being asked why he didn't have a light attached to the bicycle, the defendant replied, My light was in by the Five Arches." Witness felt the lamp and found same was quite cold.—By Sergeant Thomas: He met the defendant by the Three Mariners. It was possible that the lamp could have got cold from the Arches to there. Defen- dant was ordered to pay the costs (6s. 6d.) and given a fortnight in which to find the money. DRUNK AND DISORDERLY. James Jones, labourer, Saltern, who did not appear, was, on the evidence of P.C. Rees, fined 5s. and costs (7s. 6d.), or in default 14 days, for being drunk and disorderly in Greenhill 011 October 22nd. A list of thirteen previous convic- tions was put in by the police against the defen- dant. OBSCENE LANGUAGE. Mrs Elizabeth Goodridge, summoned Mrs Lettice John, for using obscene language towards her in St. Domingo Place, Tenby, on Sunday, October 23rd. The defendant stoutly denied that she had made use of the language imputed to her by the complainant, her husband and daughter; and eventually the magistrates dis- missed the summons, ordering each party to pay their own costs. DAMAGING PROPERTY. Tf ilfred Morgan, collier, Tenby, was summoned by the Rev. Father Carew, The Priory, Tenby, for damaging the railings of the Roman Cathofio Church, and was ordered to pay the damage 3s. and costs (12s.) or in default seven days.—Mr Bertie Morley, Borough Surveyor, preferred a further charge against the same defendant, who was alleged to have damaged a seat on the Esplanade. For this offence he was ordered to pay the damage (10s.) and costs (lis. 6d.) or seven days. Defendant said he was unable to pay, and asked for no time to find the money. It was stated in Court by Superintendent Thomas, that his mother would pay the amount of the damage and costs, but defendant refused to allow this, and said he wished to go to prison. He afterwards left the court in custody of the police. At the conclusion of the Tenby Police Court business on Monday morning the Mayor (Mr Councillor T. Tucker) said he desired to heartily thank the Bar, Bench, and Force for the kind assistance given him during his year of mayoralty. Suitable acknowledgments of His Worship's thanks were made by the Justices' Clerk (Mr G. Lort Stokes) and Superintendent William Thomas.
————— DROWNED OFF ST. GOWAN'S. —II FATE OF CARDIFF PILOT AND SON. During the terriffic storm of Sunday in the Bristol Channel, a pilot named William Couch and his son, of the same name, both living at 113, Windsor Road, Penarth, lost their lives. The accident occurred off St. Gowan's Head, about ten miles south-west of Tenby, where the sea was running mountains high and a very strong sou'wester was blowing. The pilot had gone down in his cutter, the H.J.C., to seek the Booth steamship Bernard, which he was to pilot to Penarth, and it was when he was about to board the vessel that he and his son lost their lives. Couch and his son got into the cutter's punt, which was with difficulty brought close to the steamer. They missed the line thrown from the vessel, and the punt drifting, towards the stern, was caught by a heavy sea and capsized. Both the Couchs were thrown into the sea, and the son, who was only 19 years of age and an apprentice, sank immediately. The father, however, managed to get hold of the keel of the upturned punt and he clung there for twenty minutes before he became exhausted and re- linquished his hold. The unfortunate man sank at once.

TENBY BUILDER'S SPECULATIONS COMMENCED WITHOUT CAPITAL. At the last sitting of the Pembroke-Dock Bankruptcy Court, held at the Temperance Hall, Pembroke Dock, before the deputy Regis- trar (Mr W. H. O. M. Bryant), Frederick Thomas, mason of Farnham House, Tenby, came up for his public examination. Mr J. A. Ban- croft, solicitor, Tenby, appeared for debtor. Debtor's gross liabilities amounted to B797 14s. 2d. expected to rank E327 16s. lid. deficiency 2175 Os. 6d. Causes of failure as alleged by debtor, want of capital, losses on contracts, pressure by creditors. The Official Receiver's observations were: (1) The debtor filed his own petition on the 29th of June last, and was adjudged bankrupt the same day. An execution was levied on his effects on the 25th June, also a distress for rent on the effects at the yard at Bridge Street, but the execution and distress have been with- drawn at the request of the Official Receiver. Another distress for one year's rent— £ 8 and costs—was levied on the eflect.s at the yard held by debtor in Sergeant's Lane, but the Official Receiver did not interfere with this distress, as the value of the goods was less than the amount of the distress. (2) The debtor states that he commenced business as a mason at Bridge Street, Tenby, about 20 years ago, without capital. (3) The only book of account kept by him was a day book containing particulars of work done. He is unable to state whether he made any profit in his business, and has not yet lodged a deficiency account. Owing to the debtor's ill-health, the statement of affairs was not lodged until the 18th ult. (4) The creditors shown as fully secured are in respect of cash advanced and interest on first, second, and third mortgage of freehold house and plot of land at Park Place, Tenby. The creditors shown as partly secured are debtor's bankers for balance on current account. They hold as security three policies of assurance on the debtor's life, two of £ 50 each, payable in 1912 and 1916 respectively, and the other for JS100 payable at death. The contigent creditor is in respect of debtor's liability as surety for a friend on a promissory note to a local bank. With the exception of S17 Is. 6d., money borrowed from a friend and a bank, the unsecured liabili- ties are practically all in repect of trade debts. (5) The whole of the household furniture-of the estimated value of £ 150-is claimed by the debtor's wife as her own separate property, acquired by purchase prior to marriage. In reply to the Official Receiver (Mr Herbert W. Thomas), debtor said he was 53 years of age and was born in Tenby. He was away from Tenby for ten years. He commenced business there about fifteen years ago. He was married to his present wife on February 3rd, 1898. Could you give me any idea what your position was when y6u got married ?—I had no capital, but I speculated in buying a piece of property, which turned out to be a failure. Had you any property at the time of your marriage ?-No. What was the nature of your business at that date ?—I had not speculated in building then. When did you commence speculating, in the sense that you were buying land, building houses, then selling them?—About eight years ago. Do you remember the figures you gave for the purpose of your statement of affairs, showing what you had and what you owed ?-No. Do you owe jc;527 16s. lid. to different credi- tors 1- Yes. You have been ill ?-Yes. What was the matter ?—Rheumatic gout. What was it caused by ?—The doctor said it was through getting wet and being out in all weathers. Have you done anything to aggravate it 1- No. Are you a strict teetotaler ? No; I can't say that. Are you sure what you have been suffering from is rheumatic gout ?—Positive. Have you not been drinking very heavily ?— No. What books of account have you kept ?—A day-book ledger. One book ?—Yes. You kept no record of what you have been receiving and paying ?—No not every item. Will you be able to file a deficiency account showing how you got into your present position ? —I ought to. With regard to the furniture, whose pro- perty is that ? —My wife's. How do you say she became possessed of it ? —She had it before I went to live with her. I was a widower. Did she have the ?—Yes. Wait a bit until you hear the question. There is nothing there yon bought ?—Nothing whatever. Do you say she is the owner of Farnham House ?—Yes. Did you not supply any of the money which was required for the purchose of Farnham House ?—No. Not a penny 1-For the purchase of the house ? You purchased it three years ago ?—I suppose it went in my name. I don't know exactly. How do you know it went in your name ?— Mr Bancroft is here, he can tell you. I want to know from you. Three years ago the lease of Farnham house was bought. Who was it that bought it ?—It was bought by my wife. Do you remember how much she gave for it ? —Not exactly. 9280 it was 1-Something like that. Did you give your wife anything towards the payment of that 9280 ?—No. Do you remember the transaction ?-No, really I must tell you the truth, I don't. You don't know whether it is in your name or your wife's ?—I believe it is in my wife's name. As far as you know do you remember paying anything towards the purchase ?—No I don't think so. Whatever was spent was paid by your wife ? —Yes not by me. What made you file your petition ?—I bought this piece of property some few years ago, thinking it would be a good speculation for quarrying, and it turned out a failure. I was not allowed to blast and could get nothing but rubbish from it. Where was this property situated ?—Near the Tenby railway station. There is a right of way to the Burrows, and they objected to any blasting. How much did you give for it ?— £ 340. Have you not built on it ?—Yes. What have you built 1-Six cottages. How many have you sold ?—Four. How much do you estimate you have lost over that deal ?-If the quarry had turned out well and I could have worked it without having so much rubbish, no doubt I would have done well. As it is I have lost a couple of hundred pounds. Have you been sued very much ?—No. Have you not been put in the County Court, or writs issued against you ?—By one, for £20. Have you not been put in court oftener than that ?—Not as I know of. Mr Bancroft said he wished to correct one statement made by debtor. He only built four cottages. There was ground for six. The examination was adjourned to November 25th to enable debtor to furnish a deficiency account.
