PETTY SESSIONS. Wednesday, before Major Dyson (in the chair) and Mr. T. T. Sill. COAL STEALING. Mary Blytbin, Dinah Salisbury, Margaret Conway, Catherine Thomas, and Mary Elizabeth Jones,were summoned for stealing coal from the premises of the New Flint Colliery Co. Mr. T. W. Hughes who appeared on behalf Of the company,said that there were frequent complaints about people stealing coal from the colliery bank, and notwithstanding re- peated warnings,they continued the practice. The company bad determined to put a stop to it, therefore these proceedings had been instituted. They did not wish to press the case, but they hoped the bench would take such a course as would prevent a repetition of the practice. James Ryder, colliery foreman, proved the case against the defendants. Each of the defendants pleaded guilty. The Chairman said that this was a very painful case to find so many respectable women charged with an offence of this kind, it was a bad beginning of the new century. The least they could do was to order them to pay the costs and to be bound over in good behaviour for six months. EDUCATION CASES. Frank Doyle, Edward Welch, D. Hewitt and W. Roberts, were summoned by Mr. W- E. Bithell, school attendance officer, for neg- lecting to send their children to school. Fines were inflicted in each case, and it was announced that a new Act came into force on the first of this month, which would enable the magistrates to deal more severely with these cases in the future.
