BARKY DOCK POLICE j. f FRIDAY. Before Colonel GUTHRIE and Mr J. DDNCAS EXTENSIONS GRANTED. Thomas Hopkins, Bassett Arms Hotel, applied for a two hours' extension on the following Mon- day, the 27th ult, but the magistrates refused to grant more than one hour's extension.—The land- lord of the Star Inn, Dinas Powis, was also granted one hour-from 10 to 11. EXEMPTION ORDER. William Harry Miles applied for an order re- lieving him from th, necessity of having his child vaccinated. Having a conscientious objection, his application was granted, although the magistrates remarked that he was running a fearful risk. BEYOND CONTROL. A man named Webb applied to the magistrates for an order to send his boy, David, to an indus- trial school. His son was 11 years old, and he was wholly unmanageable.—Colonel Thornley Do you mean to say you cannot manage a boy 11 years of age ? Absurd !—Ihe father said the boy stole his watch and chain and 2s in money.—Colonel Thornley We cannot send the child to an indus- trial school on your statement.- Applicant then left the court. THE ERRANT SCHOOL Bny. The attendance officer of the Barry School Board (Mr A. Seig) appeared to prosecute a number of parents whose children had not attended school with that regularity required by the law. Fines of half-a-crown were inflicted upon George Cliff, Julia Anick, William Bristol, and Jessie fielding, and 5s on Sid. Parfitt and J1 Wall. Orders to attend school were made on Herbert Pearce, Sid. Parfi't, John Davies, George Davies and the boy of William Griffiths was sent to an industrial school until he had reached the age of 14 years. A NUISANCE AND A DANGER. Henry Herbert, whose pouy strayed on the highway at Barry on the 14th ult., was fined 2s 6d. —Five cows belonging to Elizabeth Williams, Llantrithyd, were discovered out of bounds, and the owner was mulcted in 5s.—Ten pigs, by their grunts of satisfaction, arrested the notice of the vigilant policeman who taw them on the highway at Penmark on the 12th November, and E. Lougher, who claimed them, was now fined 10s.— Athough E. B. Lewis' pigs did the same thing at Llancarfan on the 14th November, the case was dismissed.—John Lennox was fined the first-offence penalty of Is for driving without sufficient light on the highway last Wednesday fortnight, and for the same offence Harry Mitchell was mulcted in 2s 6d. IT WILL SOON BE WITHDRAWN. The report has gone abroad that the Agricultural Department are anxious to withdraw the obnoxious muzz ing order from effect in South Wales. Per- haps having rapidly read this piece of news many people neglect to keep a strict watch over the vagaries of the family dog, which invariably slips out of the family residence just as a policeman, once a friend of the family, is passing. However correct the foregoing may be, the following were fined the minimum penalty of bs for carelessness in the matter :—David Watts, Thomas Griffiths, Thomas Lewis, Htnry F. Macintosh, John Morgan, John Seel, William Pushen, F. S. T. Drookes, Wm H. J. Corrie, Charles Pudsley, Mrs Rees, Sam Randall, Mary Walsh the remaining 71 6d John Sparkes, Edward Hughes, and John Roberts. GRAVE CASES. A blooming little girl named Jenny Warstow, who was accompanied by her mother, gaily ad- mitted that she fired squibs and throw other fireworks about the publie streets. She was fined ls.Mrs Joseph Beasley paid Is 6d for the privi- lege of having a fire in a chimney. THE LOWER ORDERS. John Pridham was fined 2s 6d for committing a nuisance near the Victoria Hotel last Saturday night week.—Laura Bernard submitted to the usual charge of being drunk and disorderly, and ttpon promising to take the pledge and keeping it, which, of course, can be done by signing a piece of paper, she was dismissed.—The following were fined 5s :—Kate Morgan, Samuel Blake, and John Pr..bert. A fine of 2s 6d was paid by Wm Smith, George WiliOD, and Annie Cliffe. Ellen Budge, Hugh Caineron, Dominvica Spezzia, Mrs Evans, — Robinson, Henry Littlefit Id, E. J. Garrick, Wm Locking, aLd G Cook were fined 7s 6d. THE STRANGER. C. B. Biondelli, a Geonese ornament pedlar, who had evidently been f. jghtpned by the ferocious aspect of the policeman who had asktd him for his license, was now told to go, upon his showing that he was legally entitled to sell from door to door. MONDAY. Before Colonel GUTHRIE and Colonel THORNLEY. COMMITTAL OF RATE DEFAULTERS. On the application of Mr W. C. Howe, the magistrates made orders for the committal of Fredeiick George Way, Barry-road George f Chem« tc, Cautleland-stioet and Fred Cfn"ock, Cai'oxton, to prison for sevea days eaeh in default of payment of the rates. I IRREGULAR ATTENDANCE. Mr A. Seig, the attendance officer of the School Board, occupied the witness' stand for a consider* able time in giving evidence against parents of children who attended school very irregularly. In the case of Charles Pearson, the father was made to pay a crown for repeated disobedience of an order to send his child to school. The father was stated to be a coal trimmer at the docks. Ben- jamin Hamilton and James Coombes were also fined 2s 6d for disobeying a previous order of the magistrates, and William Powell, whose son was asked to be sent to the Truant School at Dinas Powis. This was not done, however, the Bench causing the parent to pay 5s. The mother pleaded poor circumstauces, and said that her husband (a boilermaker) had been out of work since July.— Colonel Guthrie Boilermakers make good wages. Mrs Powell But he has been very unfortunate.— Sidney Roberts paid 5s for his second disobedience of an order, and was enjoined to send another child regularly, otherwise there would be a lepeti- tion of the punishment in the other case,-Charles G,& il5 in, from Cadoxton, was summoned, but Mrs Gwilym appeared, and by her vollubility of speech tried to occupy a gn at deal of the time of the court in telling the Bench how her daughter, at seven years of age, had grown out of some mys- terious ailment, and now that she had readied that period of life she should go to school regularly in future.—Mr Stig She won't go to Bchool.—Mrs Gwilym Oh she's a splendid girl to go to satiool, she is.—Other orders made were against Thomas Richard Jenkins, Samuel Draper, and Thomas Cribb. A DOOR-STEP DUEL. Elizabeth Garton, the wife of a labourer liviag at Cadoxton, summoned William Barbett for threats. Mrs Garton's story, told by herself, was as follows I was stood tn my door-step when Wm Barbett passed by atJd said something to me, and then he said I will b-- well bust you ?' He didn't do anything to me, but he tiied to strike me three times."—The Clerk: How didn't he succeed in striking you ?-Complainant Because I slipped away.—Defendant: Did I hit at yer?- Complainant: Yes, three times.—Didn't yer spit at me face ? No, never, Mr Barbett nevet, never. Then Mrs Marsh was called to give evidence for complainant. She put the position in a nutshell: I saw him threaten her, swear at her, and tell her that if she came out to the lamp-post he would knock a hole in her face." Then she gave a demonstration of the place she was standing on her own door-step, and with a show of heroism added that defendant exclaimed that anyone who takes her part I will serve them the same," but I stuck to the door and refused to move. [Judging by her weight, it would have been a difficult job.) For the defence two women were called, and declared that complainant threw sneers at defendant, and spat in his face.—The case was dismissed. AN UNLICENSED DOG. John Hannan, a Cadoxton bo;irdiiig-house keeper, was proved by Police-constable Clynch to have a dog in his possession, aua having no licence at the time he was now ordered to pay a fine of 7s 6d including costs. UNMUZZLED BOW-WOWS. The Order of the Home Office in relation to dogs being allowed about the streets unmuzzled continues to be rigidly enforced, and to-day, for committing a breach of its provision, the following were fiued .-Thomas Robertson, bank manager, 5s Frank Sainsbury, 5s Edward Hughes, 5s Wm Wood, 5s; and Louisa Clarke, 7s 6d. ROBBING THE SWEEP. James Whitchurch, a blind man, was fined 2s 6d for allowing the chimney of his house to be on fire, aud John Oak, a resident of Barry-road, was ordered to pay a like amount for a similar offence. CAUTIONED. Peter Lewis fought with three men in Dock View-road, and, admiring his pluck, the Bench, before whom he was brought on a charge of obstruc- tion, decided to dismiss him with a caution. INDECENT CONDUCT. Rose Heath, who was proved by Police-constable Welsby and another witn, ss to have been loitering around the Bassett Arms Hotel soliciting prostitu- tion, was now fined jEl or, in default, 14 days' imprisonment. A sad feature about this case revealed itself after the close of the case. Two young children in coutt, apparently those of the prisoner, burst into loud crying, aud were removed iu a distressful state outside. THE DRUNKARDS. Charles Hannan led the way of the drunkards' and after 2s 6d had been imposed was followed by Mary Aun Anthony, who was likewise ordered to pay that amount. Then came James Donovan and Nicholas Brown, fined 7s 6d W. Cowling, W. Ridley, Patrick Cannon, and Maud Evans, 5s each. A VIOLENT PRISONER. It took four constables to remove George Paddon from Holton-road to the Police station, so violent was his drunken conduct. Police-constable Welsby found him fighting in the street, with a crowd around him. Police-constable Welsby, who first went to him, was attacked in a violent manner. Resisting arrest, Paddon kicked the constable on the leg, gave him a black-eye, and bit him on the finger. Paddon made some allegations against the ft lice for i/l-treating him inside the station, but olice-bergeant R. H. Thomas and Inspector Williakna denied this, and defendant was now fined |15B Oft in default, 14 days' imprisonment. A SMASHER. Thomas Richards, a sailor, who, while in his' cups, entered the Clive Arms, Penarth, on Satur- day night, and became annoyed because he could. not be served with drink, and btoke a large plate-glass j window, value f4, the property of Mr Mules, the landlord. Police-constables James also had a charge of drunkenness and disorderly conduct against prisoner, who was now sentenced to one month's imprisonment with hard labour. NO NAME ON CART. Police-constable Hale proved that George Larsby used a cart upon which there was no name, al.d he was now fined 2s 6d, including ousts. OBSCENE LANGUAGE. John Stephens, a labourer, who was proved by Pol ice-con stable Chilcott to have used obscene language on the street on a recent Sunday night, was tined 6s.
