A VOLUBLE J. P. A CORRKSFONEENT writesIt has frequently been my lot to attend various police-courts, and I have often seen many amusing incidents. Talka- tive witnesses and loquacious lawyers are exceed- ingly common, but it is not often that I have come across magistrates who persist in talking for the sake of talking, or for the purpose of making their voices heard. One notable exception, however, is the Neath county police-court. Here one of the great unpaid" almost invariably prolongs the bearing of the cases by superfluous observations and ridiculous inter- rogations, to the amusement of some and to the evident annoyance of others, including his col- leagues. who have occasionally endeavoured to show their displeasure in a mild, practical manner. This enlightened administrator of justice is, however, either too obstinate or to thick-skinned to take the hint, consequently the time of the court is taken up with frivolous inter- ruptions. This is a matter which has long been considered a public grievance at Neath, and it is sincerely to be hoped that the magistrate referred to will ere long be convinced that.. brevity is the soul ot wit," and that perpetual talking is no criterion of either wisdom or ability. A little more discretion and less volubility would be a great reliet to those having business at the court.
