PROMOTION OF INSPECTOR MOUNTJOY.— Inspector James Mountjoy, of Carmarthen, who has been in charge of the West Wales districts of the Great Western Railway for several years, has been pro- moted to a more important district, and will now work the Reading and Oxford district. Mr. Mount- joy is a native of Cinderford. and joined the service of the G.W.R. Company at Cardiff in 1896, and after going through vaw'ous grades was appointed to the detective staff in 1901, under Supt. Matthews, who was then in charge of the Souin Wales districts. After being in the detective department some few months, he displayed marked ability, which soon gained for him well-merited promotion, and he was given charge of the West Wales districts, including Waterford and Rosslare, where he has remained until his present removal. During his charge at Carmarthen he was instrumental in breaking up a number of gangs of thieves, for which he received the thanks of his superintendent and the commenda- tions of the magistrates and judges. Many instances can be recalled where he showed a commendable trait in his character, viz., his sympathy with prisoners, not only speaking a. kindly word for them at their trial, but also in obtaining employment for them when the necessity arose. Mr. Mountjoy's removal is very much regretted in the locality. The S.
