) A Delicate GirFa Several Afflictions. Rheumatism, St. Vitus' Dance and Anaemia in turn tormented her. Made robust by Dr. Wuiiams' Pink Pills. "At the age of eleven" explained Ethet Milner, daughter of the proprietor of the Blue Boar Hotel, Sheffield, I had a severe attack of Rheumatism. The pains in my legs and arms every time I .moved made me groan my joints were stiff and my Hesh so sore that I could not bear the bed c'othesto touch me. + Thentlater a numbness attacked my legs, mellowed by twitchings of the muscles of my face and hands; my eyes were always blink- ing and my head kept jerking also the power of speech left me. A doctor attending me said that I was suffering from St. Vitus' Dance. I took much medicine but my health appeared to be worse and I was never free from slwp pains across my chest and back. "Then I learned that my troubles were complicated by Acute Anaemia and that there was every sign I should gn into a decline. "So I sank and reached a critical stage in decline when mother decided that I should try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. After taking a few boxes of them I grew more cheerful and it seemed to me that there was new blood in my veins. I persevered with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and my appetite mended wonderful iy. Then my nerves became steady and twitchings of my hands and face were things of the past. In time the numbness disappeared H\n my legs and feet. I was able to sleep well at nights and I soon had the joy of feeling quite well. Thanks to Dr. Williams' Phik Pills I became full of energy and quite cured."

CHUKCB REFORM XV.-PAROCHIAL"CHURCH COUNCILS. THE sixth Resolution of Convocation deals with the ephero of work of the Councils, a.nd map3 out a hjge Celd for their operations. It is contemplated 4hzLt tnej are to have the principal share In the Vising of funda and the administration of finance. This waa to be expected; but as we have already Jointed out, it is not unattended with dangers of 'ts Own, in the person of the plutocrat. We have su?- It,%te,d one scheme for drawing that person's toeth; *cd Convocation has indicated another means of re- ducing him to his proper importance, by advising' 4at the Councils shall "assist the Incumbent in *he initiation and development in the parish of all de- partments of parochial Church work." Wo believe this advice to be as wise as it is liberal and broad- minded the more it is acted on the better results yie shall have. We are here not in the region of i&oory but in. that of experience. Mn. WHEEL, of Hansamlet, read a. Te:ma.rknb!o paper at tbo last Diocesan Conference of St. David's; and v/hat he **M was so very much to the point that wo propose *0 quote it. His experience extends over 30 years; "cl wo should like to see his paper spread broad- cast over the Dioccao. MR. WHEEL is a working' *t&n; and, if we may judge tho bulk by tho sample, Aere ia no parish in the Diocese that would not ttroSt by the presence of half-a-dozen euch working' *teQ on its consultative body. "When the late DR. WALTERS came to L!ansa.mlet the early seventies," said MR. WHEEL, "he found only Church in what is now the parish of Llan- 'MLmJet to be totally inadequate to meet tho re- quirements of the Church people. He called the Church cmcials together, and so pleased waB ho with the result of these meetings that ho instituted a Church Council, to meet on tho Monday evening preceding' tha nrst Sunday in tho month. In four years time there was built, and practically paid for, ,one of the unest modern Churches in the diocese,— fitting' memorial to a paUant defender of the Church. Wo had no need to appeal to the. Dicec-an Conference for these privileges. They were printed tasked; but in Bpite cf their being proffered they :Tfere nono the Joss appreciated. We felt wo were Oly getting our moral ri'.rht., and we tried to show to the full our appreciation. Never has a body of "ten worked more harmoniously; our meetings were huge series of consultations. There was no bicker- ing as to what work belonged to the Council; any .Work connected with tho Church came within ita Mope. "Notwithstanding the great ability of the revered DOCTOR, and the comparative ignorance of the majority of the members, there was not the faintest temManca of pedantry from the Chair, and the opinions of the moanest omeials were always respec- ted. Wa were taught Church work without our knowing it. Our CouncU was divided oil into three Committees, viz., Finance. Building, and Choir. The Choir Committee' consistfd of the Clergy, Wsrdene, and those members of tho Council who wc-o choristers; and in addition the choir was allowed to ,elect four additional members. I look back with fride to the time when as a lad of 15 I found myself ,One of the four. Full control of the oS'ortories was made over to tho Council. The post of Treasurer Was nllcd by the Parish Warden, who was elected in the most democratic style by the parishioners at tho Faster Vestry. Auditors, too, were elected at the mar,no time, and in the name way, and a full state- ment of accounts period in the Church porch. ''For the more cmcicnt pastoral oversight the Parish was divided into districts, each under the 'pecia.I care of appointed sidesmen, who had the Hamea of each communicant printed on a leaflet. Bach communicant knew which sidesmen to call in, in case of sickness or want. On many occasions h&vc these sidesmen had to act as auxiliary relieving officers. On the la.st page of the leaSet was printed in no uncertain language a full list of their duties. As we commenced, so have we continued. During- 'the existence, and with the co-operation of our CImneh Council, the Vicare of LIansamlet have been enabled to build three Churches, two school- rooms, three large organs, and a. large Parish IIatI to seat 1,000 people; In addition to which, certain -of our members in their capacity as School Managers have opened large National Schools. Our roll of communicants has gone up from about 100 to over POO, whUe the population has been at 3, standstill. Indeed from 1391 to 1901 we registered a decrease. Our Sunday Schools have increased from one to five, Sunday School teachers from six to fifty; scholars from 50 to 770. Nearly every member of our Council is a Sunday School toucher and chorister; and we often have the unusual sight of surpliced choristers tak'ng the on'ertory in the nave as weU as in the chance!. Wo find that membership of our Council imbues m<tf with a love for Church work. For several years there has been a resolution passed at our annual Council meeting, thanking certain lay- men for their services during the preceding year. Thesa men,—each a member of the Council,—con- duct Mission Ha.11 services when required; often preaching at very short notice. Our late Vicar found great diScuhy in finding preachers for Eng- l.sh evening services held at the National Schools. He brought his dimculty before the Council, and for many years without a break the services were car- ried on entirely by laymen. WE DIDN'T FIND FAULT WITH HIM; WE DIDN'T PASS A PIOUS VOTE OF SYMPATHY; WE SIMPLY HELPED HIM THROUGH." There you have it. Beat that, if you can! We ought to apologrc to MR. WjlEEL for stealing so much of h:'s paper. But we are hardened, and in no humour for apology. We congratulate our readers instead. MR. WnEEL'9 testimony in the case of Llansamlet Is in full agreement with experience elsewhere, though the methods employed have been different; and it conspicuously vindicates the wisdom of Convocation. The last point in the sixth Resolution is a word of counsel to the clergy; it is wrapped up very n4eatly in the disguise of a dentition of part of a Council's function!}. They are "to advise the Incumbent on matters on which he thinks it expedient to consult them." For an adroit hint this v.'ill be hard to match. We have seen with what an open hand Con- vocation distributed functions to the Council. What Is there left that is not covered by what has gone before? Nothing, except the conduct of Divine Ser- vice. No incumbent who knew his calling would arbitrarily alter the modo of conducting tservlco. But with the consent of his Council he might intro- duce improvements, not in themselves unlawful; and In the improved state of Ecclesiastical Courts which we have recently contemplated the Bishop would have no dimculty in restraining eccentricities. The Committee of Rochester Diocesan Conference has gone straight to the point by add ng thia note to Its Mhome: "Wo think that the Incumbent would do well to consent to the following rule with respect to the Services of the Church:—No important change shall be made in the Services of the Church without the consent both of the Incumbent and of the Council, unless the Bishop, on hearing an ap- peal, shall advise such change." An incumbent who wishe.? to Introduce changes either in tha Services, or in organization, will do well to get a strong Council, and convince It nrst. Then he will have a body of men behind him rcprcsentlDg his people, and the best possible de- fence against cranks, and bores, and unreasonable folks of all kinds. Tho seventh and last rule of Convocation lays down that an incumbent may, with the written leave of tho Bishop, dissolve a Council. We do not Hko this rule at all. If there is a dead lock, let the Bishop decide and let both parties submit; but be- fore harassing tho Bishop, let decision on the matter bo postponed, If possible, for a twelvemonth. Much water runs under tho bridges in a year. We Churchmen have been in a state of chronic agitation for somo time past concerning the serious shortage in the supply of clargy. Can It bo, as a speaker suggested at the Pan-Anglican Congress, that this is the Divine way of pointing out to us where we have been failing In our duty to u°e the laity? The Church in tho United States went through a similar experi- ence some years since; and If that speaker bo cor- rect, she has coi-ne to regard this explanation as the m caning of what then occurred. Let us haste to profit by her warning. (To be continued).

CARMARTHEN COUNTY SATURDAY, May 1st.—Before Mr. D. W. Drum- mond, Hafodncddyn (chairman); Mr. W. F. D. Sa.un.ders, Glanrhv.'dw; Mr. A. 0. Davies, Uplands; Mr. Hughes, Middleton Hall; Mr. D. L. Jones, Deriwyn, and Mr. A. LI. Evans, Pantycendy. LARCENY OF A HORSE AND CART. George Egglcston, a ]ad of 15, who was remanded at <ho fast Court on a larceny charge, to await en- quiries, was again brought up in custody. Supt. Jones said that enquires had bean made s.t the Leicester Industrial School, and it was found that the lad was not yet 16. He was only out on license, and could be taken back if ho misbehaved himself. An oSiccr from the School h&d come down, and was prepared to take him back. The Chairman—1 am very glad that we did ad- journ the ease. Mr. McCarthy, the omcer from the School, said that the lad had been there for 4g years, during which time he behaved himself very well, and showed no signs of criminal propensities. Out of the nine half-yearly merit holidays which ho could have earned, be obtained six. The Chairman, in discharging defendant under tha First Offender's Act, said that he would be sent back to the School. Ho hoped it would be a warning to defendant. It wa<5 very lucky for him that the Bench had considered the question of leavinsr it over for a week, or he might have found himself in gaol. after wh.ch he might have led a !ifo of crime. It was very easy to go wrong, but it was also easy to lead an honest, upright life. He hoped defendant would be a good boy in future. Defendant was led away crying. LICENSING. A full transfer of the license of the Joiners' Arms, Llansaint, from John Gower was granted to George Percival Jones, a. temporary transfer having been granted eome time ago. ALLEGED THEFT OF A PIPE. Harry Graham, compositor, of no fixed abode, was brought up on remand, charged with stealing a pipe, value Is. 6d., the property of Benjamin Thomas, spinner, landlord of tho CliSord Arms, LIanpumpsaint. Complainant deposed that at 3.30 p.m. on Sunday, 25th ult.. defendant called at his house for refresh- ment. Witness was half dressed, and was smoking a pipe. When he had served defendant he put his p pe on a bracket under the table, and went up- staira to dress. When ho got down and looked for his pips he could not see it. He asked defendant whether he had 6°en it, and defendant said, "No." Defendant—I eaid, "Yes." Witness—He said no, and added that it might have dropped from witness's clothes. Complainant then taxed him with stealing the pipe, and defen- dant admitted putting it in his pocket. defendant denied stealing the. pipe, and said that. nothing was further from his head. If he wanted to steal, ho would have gone for something different. P.C. Dd. Evans (Abergwiii) spoke to arresting- de- fendant at the Cresselly Arms. Defendant was drunk, so was taken to the County Police Station nnd locked up. When witness charged him on the following day with stealing the pipe. defendant said, "I picked up the pipe from the floor." The man said, "Have you seen my and I said yes, and gave it back to him. The Bench decided that there was not suffirvnt evidence for a "prima. facie" case, and dismissed it.

A full transfer of the licence of the Buffalo Inn was granted to Wm. Davie' while a. similar transfer in respect of the Milford Arms Inn was granted to David Weeks. BAD LANGUAGE. For using obscene language at the Park on Easter Monday, Wm. Davies, comer, Primrose Villa, Gors- las. was fined 5s. and costs.—P.C. Dd. Evans, Aber- gwili. who was on spec.al duty at the Park on the day in question, proved the case.—Defendant said he did not know be would be summoned for using obscene language at the sports. NEIGHBOURS' SQUABBLE. Esther Bowen, Lammas-street, summoned Mary Ann Davies, who lived opposite, for assault and wii- ful damage, and also applied for sureties of the peace against her. There was a cross-summons of assault. Complainant said that about 7 p.m. on Wednes- day 21st ult., she was in her room behind the shop, when Mrs. Davies came in to the shop and knocked en the counter. Complainant did not answer. Her daughter was out in the back, and com- piahiant was going to tell her to inform Mrs. Davies that she (eomplaina.nt) was out.. when defendant cimo into the private room. Without saving any- thing she raised her tist and struck witness on the face, and pulling a chair from under the table made ao if to strike her with it. Complainant and her daughter tried to take it from her, fearing that she would break the glass of the side-board. De- fendant then pushed them on. one side, and going in to the shop, cammed tha glasa door which com- municated between the two rooms, using such force that her hand went: through the glass. Complainant never touched her. Mrs. Florence Danes, wife of Thos. Davies, Lam- mas-st., said that hearing screams from Mrs. Bowen's shop she went and looked In. She saw Mrs. Davies (the defendant) standing on the shop side of the glass door, shouting and threatening to kill Mrs. Bowen before she finished with Iier. Witness saw her hand go through the glass. Mrs. Bowen did not slang or strike defendant. Complainant'a daughter corroborated her mother's evidence. Defendant—1 was not from the front door, that Is the God's truth. The Clerk—That is what we want. Mrs. Mary Ann Davies, replying to the charge, and for the crops-summons, said that Mrs. Bowea called her daughter a "squint." When she heard that witness went across to Mrs. Bowen's shop to ask her about it. Witness told her not to cat! the girl a "squint," and if slio was cross with witness not to revenge on her daughter. Mrs. Bowcn then dashed at her face and scratched it. and ran into the house and slammed the door. Witness denied that she was in the shop or struck Mrs. Bpwen. She was not friendly with her, but had nothing against her character. Estell Edwards, daughter of Catherine Edward.s 16, Lammas-street, said that on the day In question she was in her shop. and was surprised to see Mrs. Davics go over to Mrs. Bowcns' Bhop. as she had never seen it happen before. Mrs. Davies knocked at the knocker, and witness heard her ask Mns. Bowen why she called defendant's daughter a, "squint." Mrs. Bowen then ran into the bouse and slammed the door, and witness heard some glass break. Dr. L. M. Bowen-Jones. The Friarv, said that on Thursday, 22nd ult., Mrs. Bo-wen" (bompln/inant) went to him, and asked for his advice with regard to an injury to her cheek, for which she wanted a certificate. He told her to summon him to give evidence as the magistrates did not like certificate! There were four marka a.s if she had been scratched by na.Hs. In the. anpHcation for sureties of the peace, Mra. Bowen f.aid that Mrs. Davies h.id threatened to kill her, and applicant v'ns in bodily fear of her. She on)y wanted peace and quiet. Defendant, was fined and costs, and bound over In :S5 in her own. recognisances to keep the peace for six months. ALLEGED DANGEROUS DOG. Ann Jones, Glannant Lodge, was summoned for not keeping a dangerous dog under proper control. This case was adjourned from a previous court in order that additional evidence might be obtained. Mrs. Kmma. Cole, wife oi Thomas Benjamin Cole, saddler, Lammas-street, repeated the evidence that she gave at the last hearing-, as to her son being attacked by a coliie dog wilcn he went to defen- dant's house forborne water. Defendant—Why did the children go into the house without my consent? (laughter). Daniel Peters, postman, 42, Priory-street, spoke to being attacked by the dog the very first time that ho sa.w him. The dog jumped at him, and bit hun in the arm. Ha told defendant at the time that it was dangerous. On another occasion the dog was chained to a. kennel, but it snapped the chain, jumped a. six-foot wall, and went for him. Ho denied defendant's allegation that ho had teased t.ha dog. Mr. John Saer, clerk to the guardians, who lives next-d<)or to defendant, said that he passed the dog several times each day, und in his opinion it was. perfectly harmless. He had never beard of it being dangerous. Mrs. Jones told him that it had at- tacked tbo postman because ho had teased it, and about, the boy. 8upt. Smith—That is the charge. Mr. Saer—No, excuse me, the charge is with keep- ing a dangerous dog. Supt. Smith—And I think we havo proved It.. In consequence of a letter addressed by Mrs. Jonea to the Rev. A. W. Parry, principal of the South Wales Training College. Messrs. W. D. Hughes and W. J. Harris, two of the students, wero gont down to eive evidence r.a to the. harmlcssness of the dog. The latter said that lie. had paascd it spores of times in cricket, tennis, harrier, and foot- ball "togs." and had never been attacked. Thn Clerk—Perhaps .he likes football tog&?' (laughter). '?' Dofe'tdant was ordered to keep tho dog under proper control. NO LIGHT. For driving a pair horso brake without a tight at 8.40 01 tho night of the llth ult., William Morris, Falcon Inn, Lammas-street, was fined 7s. 6d. in- cluding costs.—Defendant admitted the offence, and said that lie expected to be back earlier.

Davies, labourer, Wood's-rcw, was brought up charged with steahng a b.cyc:e. The owner ot the bicycle did not wishtoprosecute. The Mayor—Why did you take tho bicycle?—For fun, sir. The Mf.yor—You wanted to go for a ride, I sup- pose?—Yes, sir. Tho Mayor—Go home, and be a. good boy. The Court then rosa.
LLA*'M)VERY FRIDAY, April 51st.—Before Alderman C. P. Lewis (in the chair), Messrs. Cynl Froodvale Davies, and D. Da.vie3, RhybMd. THE RATES. The assistant overseer for Llandingat Within (Mr. R. W. Pncej submitMd a rate a. Is. 7d. in the ±. j for the bait-year ioi- Signature by the Bench. 'inis represented an increase of 5d., winch includes 6d. in the B in respect to the new echooi m course of construction. DOG EXEMPTIONS. The magistrates were lor a considerable length of time occupied in hea-iing objections to apphcations ior dog exemptions. Mrs. S. Jfrosser, Pentretygwyn, occupier of about 3 acres of land at a rental ox iij, said she had no nieep or caLi.ic, only a po.ay. bhe hau not been ob- jected to before tni6 year. t 'me Chairjuaii—inrcc ac.-es and a cow (laughter). D.C.C. Evans—The cow is missing'. He said bo happened to go round the district and ascertained the tacts. Hence he objected. Tha application was refused. Morgan Davios, Cwmcoedoeirion'a application was also objected to. It was made in respect to a hold- ing called Drefawr, which the D.C.C. &a'd adjoined the other farm. Thi.s application waa roiuscd every year. Mr. Davies, Rhyblid, said he was quite within his right in renewing his application if ho beheved ho was entitled to an exemption ior a dog. The objection wai that he was not a tanner or a shepherd. Ha had said, D.C.C. Evans admitted, that lie was not an occupier and he had not applied as a shepherd. The two farms were in the occupa- tion of his grandfather, who had been granted exemptions. Applicant worked on the farm gener' ally.—The application was refused. Mr. David Price, Abertriplwyf, said he had acres of land which he let out at tills time of the year to farmers for gracing -purpoa&s. He had sole charge of cattle or sheep on the land. The chair- man said ho could not azo much on acres of land. Replying to D.C.C. Evans, applicant admitted he had nothing on the land now. Next week there would bo stock on it. Ho had earned bis living by farming and could do so again. There were on the landSOsheepatthetime. Mr. Davies, Rhybhd, thought that the fart that he had no sheep or cattie on the land at present did not debar him to an exemption.—The application was refused. Isaac PoweII, Cwmydw-issa, said his land was 7 acres. He had two cows and a calf. The dog would bo useful to keep other sheep on' the land. The Chairman said he had to get the cheep from off his land without the assistance of a dog. One dog was allowed. Applicant—Thank you, sir. The Chairman—Don't thank us, we omy do what we think is right. With regard to Mr. Danie] Daviee, King's Arms, It was stated that he had taken cut a licence. Daniel Evans, Hafodtafolog, LIanwrda, was granted exemption for two dogs. In this case an error had been made through two application forms having been filled in respect to the same farm. Wm. Evans, Penlan, Cynghordy, applied for four exemptions. Ha was allowed two last year. He ::aid he had more sheep this year. D C.C. Evnns said applicant had applied for two in Brecoosbire. Applicant sa.!d the papers were still io. He hadn't received them yet. D.C.C. Evana—You want six altogether?.—Yes, sir. He had between 12,000 and ]3,000 sheep. D.C.C. Evans applied for an adjournment to see what was done in Breconshire. Mr. Davies, Rhyblid—His application would be at his own risk In Breconshiro. Tho C!crk—The proper way would be for the Deputy Chief Constable to report to Breconshire that he has had it hero. DC.C. Evans—Is it not my duty? The Clerk—But it is usually dona. Exemptions for four dogs were granted. Evan WiDiams, Penrbiwiar, was granted exemp- tions. Applied for three, but was allowed two. William Davies, Molwas, applied for one exemp- tion. He said ho shepherded about 15 hundred sheep for different farmers. He was not a shepherd but assisted his father. He 'WM not a shepherd but assisted his fathre. The latter kept about nine or ton cattle and about 200 sheen, and was paid for looking after about 13.000 sheep.—The application was granted, the police with- drawing their objection. BREACH OF THE LICENSING ACT. Mrs. M. Jones, Butchers' Arms, was charged with supplying beer on a Sunday. Defendant pleaded not guilty. D.C.C. Evans said that the Butchers' Arms was a six days' licensed house, consequently the house was to be closed for the whole of Sunday for the sale of intoxicating liquors. It was a sale without a licence. Mrs. Jones appeared to be the person who effected the sale. A man named Daniel Jones would be charged with aiding and abetting. P.C. Thomas said he was en duty near the Butchers' Arms on Sunday, the 18th of last month, at 8.45 p.m. He saw a man going into the house. Mrs. Jones and another woman, Daniel Jonea' wife, v.-ero standing on the front doorstep. They -went into the passage after the men. In a few seconds Daniel Jones came out and went down the street quickly. Witness followed, caught him up, and found a bottle of beer in bis pocket. Witness then went to the Butchers' Arms' front door and asked Mrs. Jones where her husband was. She said that he was not in. He then asked her why she sold the beer to Jones, and she replied, "I did not sell it." He then told her that Jones had told her that she had sold him the beer and Joiies said in her presence, "For God's sake don't say a word about it." D.C.C. Evan';—And the other woman, what reply did she make, if any ? Witness— purchased the beer at LIangadock. 1 was there with Mrs. Jones to-day and brought the beer back with me.' He produced the bottle of beer. Defendant told him that she knew nothing about thobeer. The Chairman—Is there any private mark on the beer bottle. Witness replied that it wr.s a three-star brandy bottle. D.C.C. Evans—When you first challenc-ed the de- fendant she said that she didn't sell it, but after you repeated to her what Jonea had told you she didn'tdeny?—Notaword. She didn't contradict the story as to Its being from Llangadoek, but said she knew nothing about the beer?—Yes. Cross-examined by defendant, witness domed that ho only ppokc to Mrs. Jones. Defendant elected to give evidence on oath. She said that Mrs. Jones and herself went for a. drive round Llangadock. When They cama back Mrs. Jones asked her to]- a bordo of beer to go home for supper. She gave it to her, but did not receive any money for it. Mrs. Jones then, she supposed, went to the door and met Mr. Jones passing and gave it tohim. The Chairman asked how came she to tell the constable that she brought the beer from nan- gadock. Defendant rcnhed that she probably did not know what to say at tho time. "She could not say." '.he added ''th:'n: she brought it from Uangadock, for I gave it to her myself." Cross-examined—She supposed that Mrs. Jones hud the bottle with her when the constable was at the door and gave it to her husband. She Raw Thomas burning the bottle back. It v.'as the one produced. Witness did not know she was going to give it to her husband. It was in the back kitchen she asked witness for it. All this h.-d 'jnppei-td before the constable came up. It was well within your knowledge what had hap- pened?—Yes. because she was waiting for me to go ou<: with her to the door. Why did you not tell the constable this—that when Mrs. Jones asked for a bottle you gave it her?—I did give It to her. The constable never spoke to me. Whon ho charged you with this serious offence why didn't you say that you gave Mrs. Jones tho beer?—He never spoke to me at all. Isn't this an after-thought? You* have had time, you know. eiuco to think?—Hp was only by the door. I never know until Thomas brought the bottle back. You remember rhe constable bringing the defendant Jones back to you?—No. I didn't see Jones. He was gone. P C Thomas here said that he did take Jonea back. Continuing, defendant paid that the oo'jstabJe Mover asked her where her husband was. He never said anything at a)I to her. D.C.C. Evans—He didn't tell you that the other man f-aid that you had sold him the beer?—No; he never spoke a word to me. I tdd my boss, but he never f'poke a word to imp about It. D.C.C. Evans—Very likety. So t)II this is. a. pure Invention en the constable's part?—I run saying the truth, sir. Daniel Jones, the other defendant., was then charged with aiding and abetting. Th<* evidence WM similar. Defendant said that he did not go further than the door. The witness said he went into the pass- age. Now, ho said, he met him on the treet. Replying to the Bench, D.C.C. Evans said there was nothing against the present tenants of the house. The Chairman said they were bound to believe the constable's evidence. Under the Act of Parliament, selling on a Sunday with a six-days' licence was looked unon as a very serious cffence indeed. They could Innict a ppna!ty of :E50 for the hrst. offence, or imnrisonment, but as there was nothing- against the house before they were going to deal with it a little bit leniently, but they wished to warn the present defendant and others against committing such an offence again. She would be Sned JE5 and costs. Danlol Jones, the other defendant, wouid be uned .El and costs. The Court then adjourned. On the resumption cf the sitting the magistrates present were AiQerina.n Lewis and Mr. C. F. Davies. DaniGl Morgan, Half Moon, -was charged with being drunk and disorderly. Mr. D. T. M. Jones defended and pleaded not guilty. P.S. Deans deposed that on the 13th cf this month, about 9.15 p.m., he v.'as on duty in Stone- street at the entranc to garden, accompanied by P.C. Thomas. They heard two men ocwn L.e street, a.id looking in the direction of the Town Hall saw them comihg in their direction. They were staggering from side to side and singing. They were arming' each other, and opposite Mr. Price, the jeweller's shop, the man who was w.th defendant said, "G—— d you can't sing. One of the men was singing "Rule Britannia," and the other, "For he's a jolly good fellow." The Chairman—There was a httle discord then, 1 suppose (laughter). Continuing, witness said: When they came op- posite to where witness was standing, Edward?, the other defendant, said to Morgan, "Hush, hush," to which the latter replied, "G—— d—— you, 1 don't cars a b — for anybody." They continued their way up the street staggering from side to side and talking loudly to each other. At the door of the Half Moon, Edwards left Morgan. Witness and P.O. Thomas then proceeded up the street, and came up with Morgan leaning against his own door—partly In and partly out. They then went up as far as the New White Lion, where they stood. At 9.50 they visited the Half Moon. In tne room they saw defendant sitting down in a chair in tt.o middle of the room with a glass in his hand con- taining something. He appeared to be in a very collapsed state. His eyes were partly closed, and he gave every evidence of being drunk. Witness noticed a man sitting by the Sreside who appeared to be fast asleep with his head in his hand. Wit- ness woke him up to see what state he was in and found that he was sober. Witness then said to de- fendant. "Whose this?'' Defendant replied, "You ought to know him. He is a relation of mine. You have seen him here before, and why should you ask such question. D—— you, what right have you to interfere like this with me in my own house. I think you want to try and got some- thing against me to catch me doing something wrong. says he. "I have a good mind to report you for interfering." They then turned round to go out. Defendant with difficulty got up from the chair he was sitting on and put the glass he wa? ) holding down on the table. Defendant with diffi- culty followed them out. As he was going through the passage be staggered against the passage door. They then stood near the middle of the road. De- fendant followed them up, and as he was stepping over the little gutter he bumped against P.C. Thomas, and if it had not been for that he would have landed on his face. He became very abu'ive towards witness. He said, "D—— you, you b——, What do you want in my house like this? Do you say I'm drunk?" Witness replied. "Cer- tainly. You were accompanied to the door iust now by another drunken man arm in arm." Defr-n- dant replied, "You are telling a lie." Wit- Defendant then demanded to know who he was, and witness declined to tell him. Witness then left defendant, who made for and staggered, or rather fell. against the side of his own door. As he went in witness went down the street. Cross-examined—Witness called at the King's Head about 8 o'clock that evening. Defendant was there. He could not say from the position in which defendant was then, against- the counter, whether he was drunk or sober. Owen Edwards was chatting with him. Could not say whether Owen was sober then. Both were singing when coming tow&rds me up the street. Did not hear Edwards singing. "Farewell." He was surprised to hear Morgan using such language. He did not think it proper to go to speak to them then. Didn't you think prevention was better than —If we did go oa it would cn!y add fuel tc the fire. I understand the feeling the man has to- wards me. What sort of a feeling have you towards him?— FriencUy feeling towards everybody. Replying to further questions, witness said he used his discretion. It was not his duty to appre- hend him if he went_ home. Both were drunk and disorderly. They did not arrest everybody they came across drunk and disorderly unless they re- fused to go homo when spoken to. Defendants were Tory near the gutter, but did not happen to fall. There were a good many people on the street at the time. It entered his mind to report him immediately he saw who he was. He had no ill- feeling against Morgan, and would do him a kind- ness to-morrow if he had a chance. Defendant was very nearly past articulating when he spoke to him. He made his statement In a. most rambling fashion. Defendant did not tell him that he was going to see a doctor to see whether he was drunk or not. Witness denied hiring taken the hat off the head of the man who was asleep and knocking it over hi? eyes. If Doctor Taylor said he exa- mined defendant at 9.30 it was untrue or his clock was wrong. He did not think it was necessary to have other witnesses besides P.C. Thomas and him- self there. Hs left that to the Deputy-Chief to decide, to whom he made his report. Defendant was very hazy. They had been visiting all the public-hoiises that day in the course of their duty. The Chairman—Isn't it usual to warn people in this way to go home quietly. Prevention is better than cure?—If they continued we would. They took into consideration whether it would be likely to cause any further disturbance. They did not wish to cause a scene if they could avoid it. P.C*. Thomas gave corroborative evidence. Cross-examined—Defendants were singing, shout- ing, and swearing. The Chairman said that if they were* singing they could hardly be noisy. It was at 9.50 they visited the Half Moon. Defendants stopped singing when they saw the police. Mr. D. T. M. Jones then addressed the Bench for tho defence, outlining the evidence he intended calling. Before they could convict it must he proved that defendant was both drunk and dis- orderlv. A person who sang In the street was not drunk and disorderly, and the cti-r man stopped when his client asked him to. His client had transacted some business that evening with Mr. Isaac Havard, to whom he paid h.-tif & year's rent. Amongst, the witnesses he intended Ci/nng also, was Mr. Caradog Davics, a most :potable man, who he believed was a member of the Pechabites He commented on the fact that it was rather strange that the police did ft offer t.. a.company I him when defendant said he was going to see the doctor, which he then and there did at 9.30 p.m. Daniel Morgan, the defendant, then ert(.red the box and gave an emphatic dv>nill to th. .d.f-Tge. The other defendant was a bit of a singer. Wit- ness denied having sung hlm-'Oif. saving h:- ha, no voice. The Chairman—You are hke me then, you haven't much of a voice. Witness—No. He added in reply to a quest'-on that the song Edwards sang was yw m'ail Hafod y Cwm." He alleged that the T.chce- sergeant was in a bit of temper trvt: -ds I-'i'n, hnd referred to the hat incident, '.ir—ing that t'c had dipped it down over the other man's f'l-'e. ed him why he should be so inquisitive about this man. In answer to that he said. "Now I saw you and Dai Dally coming from the Kmg's Head. ihat was, he supposed, a slang name towards Edwards. Witne- denied that he had staggered at all that day. He detailed his visit to Dr. Taylor to be exa- mined as to his condition, and added that he did not deny having taken drink that day, but that bo was perfectly sober. Dr. Tavlor said that defendant was in his con- sultm0" room about eight minutes. He came there at 9.30. He spoke to defendant. He gave him a elearlv-eonnectod intelligible story. He was per- fectly" still and steady. He walked into his con- sulting room without any trouble. He stood m his room without in any way losing his equilibrium. Unknown to defendant he had also watched him walk un the street. He walked quite steadily. The doctor 'laughed at. the suggestion that he was in a state of drunken collapse. Collapse was a very serious condition. It occurred when one was on the verge of going hence. Cross-examined as to whether he, as a, doctor, possessed any special qualmca.tion for detecting when

a man was drunk, Dr. Taylor said that he would answer it by asking another. Was nor there such a person as a divisional surgeon in London who wan called in to see whether a man was drunk or not. As to his training to enable him to judge, Dr. Taylor said he had had five years in the Army, tour years in the mcrchautile marine, and some years as an ordinary hous? surgeon. Mr._ Isaac I-lavard sa:d that c.11 the evening of the 15tb, about 8.30, defendant drew him a cheque in payment of his rent at the King's Head. In his opinion he was quite sober. Evidence as to defendant's sobriety was aj&o given by Mr. David Rice Evans, an employee of Messrs. J. Jenkins and Sons, and Mr.'Caradog- Da.v'e6, of the same firm. The Bench said they had considered the case. They certainty did not think there was sumcient evidence to convict. They therefore dismissed the case. Owen Edward?, the other defendant, who was described as a collie! and who D.C.C. Evans said had served in two police forces, was then similarly eharc-ed.—P.S. Deans said this defendant had been drinking- about public-houses for day-—He was Ened 5s. and costs.—He called no witnesses, but denied the offence.
