CARMARTHEN BOROUGH POLICE COURT. MONDAY.—Before Messrs T. Davies (mayor) and C. W. Jones. CHARGE OF DESERTION. This was an adjourned bearing of the summons issued by Mary Thomas against her husband, George Thomas, Cambrian Place, for maintenance on the ground of alleged desertion. Mr White, who again appeared for defendant, said that since the labt hearing the defendant had found a home, but his wife had not come near him. He (Mr White) had been to the complainant, but she refused to return. He did not know whether there was anyone behind the scenes influencing her, with the exception of Mary Bowen, a witness at the last hearing. His client was going to lopton that day week, and he thought that a word of kindly advice from the Bench would do some good. As the defendant was willing to take her back, he would ask the Bench to dismiss the summons against him. Mr C. W. Jones-Is the home that has been offered her a proper one ? Defendant—Yes, sir, everything the same as we used to have. The Clerk said that as the husband was willing to take her back, they could not make an order agaiust him. Defendant-She has not been near me since this day fortnight. I have a bouse ready for her in Cambrian Place. Complainant said she was quite willing to go back if he treated her better than he usually did. The summons was thereupon dismissed, com- plainant promising to go back to her husband. JUVENILE PILFERERS. David John Rees, son of William Rees, 18, St. Catherine-street; and Lewis Davies, son of John Davies, Pentre Cottages, aged 8 and 11 years respectively, were brought before the Bench for stealing apples, &c., from Mr Brunei White's premises, Fountain Hal), on Sunday. Mr White said he did not come to prosecute them, but as the premises belonged to him, be thought an admonition from the Bench would do a deal of good. The garden where he was goinc to build was enclosed, but about 20 or 30 children were in the habit of pilfering gooseberries, apples, etc., from there, and not only that, but whole trees hrtd been torn up. He had placed P.O. Burnhill to watch, and the. result was that last Sunday he caught the two little boys in Court. All he wanted was to get the plact) preserved, and asked the Bench to give the boys a lesson, which would be a warning to others. The boys having been admonished by the mayor were discharged. This was all the business.
