HOLYWELL. MONTHLY SESSIONS, Oa Tuesday, four young colliers, named respectively Williams, Rawlinson, and Davies (two), were summoned by Robert Griffiths, gamekeeper to Dr. Mould, Cornist Hall, for game tresspass on land belonging to Oaklands, Bagillt. Mr. F. Llewelyn Jones prosecuted, and Mr. J. B. Marston, Mold, defended. The prosecutor stated that he saw the de- fendants on the land, with three dogs, on December 11th, and cautioned them, but one of them afterwards followed into the cover with the dogs. Mr. Marston for the defence, said the de- fendants were out for a walk, with no in- tent oa of poaching. He called thA defen dants, who swore they had no idea of poaching, and were merely out for a walk: Mr. Jones questioned two of the defen- dants regarding previous convictions against them. Mr. Marston called attention to the fact thit Mr. Jones was in possession of the book which contained the police record of convictions. He strongly objected to this, and said Mr. Jones had no right to the book. Mr. Jones: This is a public document, and anybody can consult it. Mr. Marston said it was a most improper thing for the Court to supply Mr. Jones with this book, as it gave him an advan- tage. Mr. Jones You don't like it evidently. The Bench dismissed the case, allowing Mr. Marston his fee of a guinea. The same defendants were then charged with a similar off once-alleged to have been committed on the same day-by James Morley, gamekeeper to Mr. Isaac Taylor, Coleshill. Mr. Marston said that this case was even a more trumpery and absurd one than the last, and he hoped the bench would give him two guineas in this case (laughter). The Bench also dismissed this case, each side to pay their own costs. There was a third case against some other defendants, but Mr. Jones said he had de- cided to withdraw it.
