That ticket would be in order from Rhyl to Sandbach, but he had travelled from Aber to* Rhyl without paying ac all. He (Mr. Fenna), had no hesitation in saying this was a deliber- ate attempt at a bare-faced fraud. It was the man's intention to evade payment, and he took a short distance ticket to get out of Bangor. Evidence having been given in support of the opening statement of the advocate, Defendant admitted travelling as stated but had no intention of defrauding. He intended getting out at Aber, but changed his mind, and went on, offering to pay the fare from Aber to Rhyl, at Crewe.
