♦ COUNTY POLICE COURT. Wednesday.—Before Mr. W. D. W. Griffiths, (in the chair) and Mr. T. J. Williams. DRIVING WITHOUT LIGHTS Hugh Williams, of the Crown Inn, Llansan- nan, was summoned by P.O. Evan Williams for having driven a team of horses and a cart in the village of Llansannan, on the 30th ult, without lights. Defendant who did not appear, was fined 3s. 6d. and costs. IMPORTANT TO FARMERS, AND OWNERS OF CONVEYANCES. The Chairman said there was another class of offence going on in the County which ought to be stopped. He did not suggest that the offen- ders, in the first instance should be summoned, but the offence was so prevalent that the police would do well to caution the offenders. He referred to the byelaw which required the names of owners to be placed upon their carts &c. Some had not got their names fixed at all, others had it up side down behind the horses' bail, where nobody could see it. The law pro- vided that the names should be put on the right land side of the conveyance, and should also be n letters one inch in size. Supt. Jones said he would see that these ifienderb should be cautioned. DEFRAUDING THE RAILWAY COMPANY. Thomas Jones, an Army Reserve man, re- iding in Llanrhaiadr, was summoned by the jondon and North Western Railway Company or having travelled from Ruthin to Llan- haiadr on the 23rd of November, without aving paid his full fare, and with the intent to efraud. Mr. Fenna, solicitor, Liverpool, prosc-ciited n behalf of the company, and the defendant id not put in an appearance. Mr. Fenna said the case was a very simple tie, and he would preface his remarks upon the ise, by statingjthat the company were troubled great deal by petty frauds of this nature, here only 2d. or 3d. was involved. A great 3ai. of this systen: had been going on, and tore was an impression abroad, that the Rail. ay Company would allow it to pass without any notice. It had become more prevalent, not only in this district, but in others, and the company were determined to press all cases where absolute proof of intent to defraud was forthcoming. In the present case, he would | ask for a substantial fine. On the 23rd of No- vember, the defendant was seen to leave Llan- rhaiadr for Ruthin, and took a single ticket for the journey. He was again seen in the train due at Llanrhaiadr at 4-29. This was on the re- turn journey, and lie was now charged with having travelled from Ruthin to Llanrhaiadr without paying his fare, having been seen in the train and to leave it. The defendant was asked for his ticket by the porter, and after- wards by the relief station-master. Defendant stated more than once that he did not come by train, and therefore it might be inferred that there was an intention to avoid payment. He stuck to his statement for a considerable time, but on being remonstrated with by Mr. Par- tington, the relief station-master, the defen- dant at last said that he had travelled by the train, but had no money to pay for the fare. Cadwaladr Jones, porter at Llanrhaiadr station said that on the day in question, he booked the defendant to Ruthin by a single ticket. He saw him coming back again with the 429 train, and observed him going, not along the platform to the usual place where tickets were taken, but through the goods yard. Ernest Partington gave evidence to the same effect. The defendant at first denied having come by tram at all, but upon being pressed, he said that he had done so, and was under the impression that he would get off alright, be. cause he was an Armv reserve, man. He was fined 15s and 9a. 6d. costs. II
