A Reckless Miner at Penrhiwceiber. At Aberdare Police-court on Tuesday Joseph Jones, a collier, was summoned for infringing the 221th and 229th special rules in forcfe at the Penrhiwceiber Col- liery.—Mr C. Kenshole appeared on behalf of the prosecution, and, in stating the case, he said that on Wednesday morning last a man named Richard Evans, who was working in the colliery some fifteen or sixteen yards from the defendant, observed an un- usually bright light where the defendant was engaged, and he came to the conclusion that it was caused by a lamp with the top taken off it. He went towards the defendant, who, as he approached, took up the lamp and carried it for some few yards in front of him. Evans distinctly heard the defendant screw on the top, and thereupon he proceeded to give informa- tion to the fireman. The fireman questioned the defendant as to whether he had anything in his pos- session for unlocking his lamp, and Jones replied that he had not; but, upon being searched, an ordinary lamp-key was found in his pocket, which, however, he said he was not aware he had. The defendant, who was 63 years of age, had been discharged by the com- pany, but they, nevertheless, considered that for example's sake, they were in duty bound to bring the matter before their worships.—Evidence was callcd in support of the learned advocate's statement, and the Magistrates imposed a fine of 20s. and costs, with the alternative of a month's imprisonment.
