FRIDAY. Before Mr JOHN DUNCAN and Dr TREHARNI. A LATE START. Owing to the fact that only Mr Duncan put in an appearance at the hour appointed for opening the Court, the business did not commence until after one o'clock, when the second magistrate arrived. Minor cases came up first for consideration. Robert Thomas, the first person to appear in answer to a summons charging him with allowing eight of his cows to stray on the highway at St Nicholas, was fined 5s; Albert Flood and Jessie Bailey, for allowing their chimneys to get on fire, were mulcted in a penalty of Is 6d. A HOST OF INTIMPERATES. The 11 Soakers proceeded against included Wm. Norman, a coal trimmer, with a record at the court, was ordered to pay 10S Phillip Waldane, Thomas Carney, and Thomas Irwin, 7s 6d each David Sullivan, 10s and Rhoda Mary Cole, 5s. NOT UP TO HIS WORD. George Woolacott, labourer, sued Henry Collier, a foreman boilermaker, for the non-payment of 7s 4d, representing ii day's work. The case had been previously adjourned for the attendance of Mr Stenner, president of the Labourers' Union, who was subpcened to give evidence for the defence. Complainant said he was employed to assist the platers, and he went in at six o'clock one Saturday morning to finish a job on a steamer. It was in respect of this job that he now claimed wages.- In reply to defendant, Woolacott admitted that he was with other men on the previous day when they let a plate slip into the dock, which was required for the steamer. They spent the afternoon with the diver trying to recover it, but failed. In con- sequence of that, and to prevent delay, they went in early on the following morning in order to get it ready before the dinner hour. The other men might have decided to work this time for nothing in order to make up for the loss of the plate, but he (Woolacott) did not believe in doing so. Mr Collier then called Mr Stenner, who deposed that he made an investigation of the circumstances of the case on behalf of the Society which he repre- sented, and of which complainant was a member, and found that the men all agreed to do this work in consideration of the loss they had incurred. Complainant had misrepresented the case al- together, the other men stating that he had agreed with the others to do this.-Mr Duncan said the Bench were satisfied that complainant had been a party to the bargain and dismissed the case.—Mr Collier said he would entirely forego the question of costs. A RECKLESS AND FOOLISH DRIVER. Frederick Pearce, "haulier, was summoned for ?*R*VIDG ON the highway in Barry recently. All the witnesses in the case were civilians, »ND they swore that defendant drove down the road furiously and urged on the animal, notwithstanding the fact that there were a large number of children on the roadway. One of these was run over and severely injured. A fine of 20s, or 14 days' im- prisonment was imposed. AN UNSUSTAINED CHARGE. Jessie Bailey, residing at Lee-road, was sum- moned for keeping a brothel on her premises. The evidence not being sufficiently conclusive, the case was dismissed. LATE HOURS. Esther Grey, a refreshment-house keeper, for having her premises open until 11.15 p.m. on the night of the 22nd February, was fined 5s including costs. ° AN ALLEGED SHEBEEN, A case which occupied a considerable time was that in which Robert Winstone, mason, 14, Daniel- street, was charged with selling beer without a license on Sunday, March 5th, when his premises were watched and entered by Police-constables Clinch and Toms. Five men were found on the pre- mises, and for the defence Mr Jones-Lloyd called these as FITNESSES, and they declared that they had 11 clubbed together to buy the 41-gallon cask of beer, and as they were ninepENCe short, defendant's wife made up the amount required. The case was dismissed—Winstone: Well, sir, we have been here a long time. I think I ought to have my costs. (Laughter.)—Mr Duncan: You think your- self a lucky man, and go away.
