Played on Saturday, June 10th, at Smithfield. The College batted first and knocked up seventy-one, to which Pring, Hall, and Johnson were chief contributors. Town began finely, Gaer Jones and Yearsley running up forty- seven before the former was bowled. The College total was passed with five wickets down. In the middle of the innings Boycott batted very freely for thirty, but had lucky escapes in the field. The final score reached 129, Town thus winning easily by fifty-eight runs. Gaer Jones and Yearsley showed beautiful form at the start and made numerous fine strokes. U.C.W. was handi- capped by the absence of Halliwell through an injured knee. During the match Madden also had to give up wicket-keeping through a slight accident. Score r Î X7%- C. R. Jones, c Yearsley, h Gaer Jones 14 A. F. Grundy, b Tudor Jones 4 E. H. Madden, run out 7 H.

On Friday, in the Probate, Divorce, and Ad- miralty Division, before the President (Sir Francis Jeune) and a special jury, the case of Edwards v. Edwards and Edwards, Edwards, and Wilson (Beddoes intervening) came on for re-trial. The first case was a petition by the wife for a judicial separation and the second case was a petition by the husband for a divorce,—Air Foulkes Griffiths appeared for the intervener, Dr Beddoes. Mr Bargrave Deane, Q.C and Mr Ellis Griffith for the husband and Mr Inderwuk, Q.C., and Air Priestley for the solicitors for the wife. The President said he had better explain to the jury how the present trial came about, as other- wise it might appear rather complicated. There were previous proceedings by the husband against the wife in which he charged her with adultery. When the cise came on, it appeared that he did not charge ner with adultery with any particular person, but charged her with adultery with a person unknown. It was found that she had had a child of which the husband said he was not the father. Therefore, he said, some one else must have been. Then he relied on certain letters to him from her in which there were admissions by her that she had committed adultery. At the trial the wife did not deny the charge and withdrew the charges of cruelty she had made igainst the husband, and the case going on with, the result was that the wife was found guilty of adultery with a person unknown. She not appealing to deny the charges of cruelty were dismissed. Now there was an intervention. [n cases like this the law said if there was reason bo suppose that material facts were not before the Jourt at the trial, or that the facts had been mis- understood, the Public Prosecutor might intervene md ask that the decree of dissolution of marriage might be set aside. The law also said that an out- iide person altogether, having no direct interest in the matter, might come forward aud intervene and ihat was how this case arose. Dr Beddoes who, ae believed, attended Mrs Edwards when she was ill came forward now and took upon himself to say ihat material facts hadbeen withheldand that when the case was tried before the Court came to a wrong conclusion, or that the facts proved presented a wrong view of the case. The charges of adultery igainst Dr Edwards had been withdrawn and there were some minor charges of cruelty, but the real 3ase they had to determine was whether the result of the previous trial wis wrong—whether Mrs Edwards was guitly of the adultery of which she was found guilty. As she herself did not leny it in the previous case, it was i peculiar state of thiBgs that a person should be illowed to come forward and say the decision was wrong. There was nothing like it in the law ex jept in proceedings of that kind. Mr Foulkes Griffiths, in opening the case, paid the view of the intervener was that 00 the proper facts of the case they could not be consistent with iny reasonable theory, except by presuming the innocence of the wife, Catherine Edwards, and he thought when the facts were all laid before his Lordship and the jury they would be of the same opinion. This was one of those remarkable cases which could only arise in village life when a theory had been worked up in the village and the evidence in a way supported the conclusion which people came to. In this case Dr Edwards and Mrs Ed- wards lived for several years in amity and peace, having a few occasional quarrels until the incident arose which led to Dr Edwards being suspicious of his wife. Dr Edwards thought his wife must have 3ommitted adultery and brought an action charg- ing her together with various co-respondents. But it was very remarkable that as the case proceeded jne after another the co-respondents were dropped intil there was not one left. Of course it might 3e proved that the wife had committed adultery with some person without proving who the guilty nan was. When the case came before the court md Mrs Edwards appeared to defend herself, she inderstood that terms were offered her which would nake a settlement and she consented to a decree lisi. The case now was that the principal idea ,n her mind was to submit to any terms which would give her some facility with regard to having possession of her child, a daughter seven years old. 3he was very anxious to retain that child and he thought all the remarkable conduct and admissions )f Mrs Edwards would appeal to their minds to be such conduct as might hang upon that idea. It appeared that in August, 1876, she was made to sign a confession by her husband under great pres- sure. He found she was pregnant and asserted he was act the cause of it as he had not had access to her. He (Counsel) had to submit that in the facts prove d, when they considered how the husband and wife lived together, that the husband must be wrong. They lived in a small house and Dr Edwards used generally to sleep in the spare room, unless it was required for guests, as he came home at all hours. But occasionally he would go to the room where his wife slept with their child. Shortly before this time there was a guest at the house, whom he need not mention, and when thehusband came home late he admitted he went to his wife's room. He said, however, he had no suspicion of his wife's condition and she never told him anything about it, and if that were all of course it would be natural that sus- picion should be aroused against the wife. She herself actually believed she was not pregnant be- cause she was in illhealth then and had no symptoms to go by. Therefore he sub- mitted, it was quite possible she was right and was genuinely surprised when her husband told her the fact. When he learnt it he was very angry and said no one had been there except Mr So-and- so and he must be the father. He then wrote out a confession which he made her sign, but he (coansel) submitted that under the circumstances that confession could not be accepted at all. A day or two afterwards, Mrs Edwards left the house and went to the residence of a relative and while there she was confined a few days after. While she was ill, her husband never came to see her and she was seized with a remarkable longing to see her child and seemed to think that was the one objeel living for. She wrote letters to her husband saying so, and those letters contained admissions which he could not account for, except on the supposition that she wanted to get her husband to allow her tc see the child. They might be taken as confessions. Dr Edwards thought they were not so explicit as thE first confession, but they were written when sht was very agitated and ill and her one ruling idet was a desire to see the child. The husband did n01 believe the first confession and no one else did. HE (counsel) asked the JuJge to treat those letters it the same way. The husband withdrew all th< particular charges of paternity, and now the Inter- vener (Dr Beddoes) asked the jury to say, whet they had heard all the evidence, that the onl3 reasonable conclusion to come to was thai the husband himself was the father of the child and that as one of the public, Dr Beddoes was per fectly justified in coming there and submitting th< wife was not guilty in the way that had beei alleged, and that it was not reasonable to believi every silly story that was spread. He was not go ing to press any charges of adultery against thi husband, but with regard to the cruelty, he thought the jury would say that the husband in endeavouring to extort a confession had used a certain amount of cruelty to the wife. r A decree nisi had been given against the wife and he now asked the jury to say that could not stand. It was a difficult case and in many respects a pain. ful one, but he thought they would fiud there was no evidence of adultery. The President I should like to know what charges of cruelty you make. You have not said a word about them. Mr Griffiths said with the exception of a few minor acts, he did not think any cruelty could be referred to except the turning her out of the house in August. The President That is not cruelty. There is not much use in talking about that Air Deaneasked if he might be supplied with the material facts which it was alleged were concealed from the Court. The President said he did not think it was neces- sary. That part of Mr Griffiths's speech was that the first trial was an error, that all the facts were not brought out, and that the lady wished to explain what were the real facts of the case. Mr Deane I should like to know whether he is going to call Mrs Edwards. I ask because I have rtason to believe that her own solicitor has advised her to the contrary. Dr Beddoes cannot force her to go into the box against her will, She ought to be cautioned. The President Certainly. (To Air Griffith) I presume you are going to call her. Miss Florence Beatrix Allcock, a relation of Mrs Edwards, gave evidence that when she stayed with tnem Dr Edwards used to sleep with his wife. Mrs Catherine Edwal ds was then called. She said it was on Sunday, August Sth, 1S96, that she had some words with her husband about her condition. He wrote out a paper and asked her to sign it. Afterwards she signed it without reading it. What do you say with regard to it ? I say I was made to sign it. My husband came home on Sunday night and asked me if I had sent a certain letter to a gentleman he wished to go out shooting with. I said I had not, as I had not understood he wished me to send it off and he be- came very violent and ultimately charged me with being pregnant. I said I did not think I was, as I was suffering from something else. He then ex- amined me. Is the paper true or not true ? It is not true. What did you say to him ? I don't quite remember. I may have said I did not think so, but I am not quite sure. On that night my husband pulled me hy the hair and dragged mc about. He pressed his foot on my stomach and then left the house. On the follow- ing day he produced the paper and said, Sign this." What led up to it ? Nothing led up to it. He brought it into the dining-room with it ready written. He said, "Oh, how I hate you. I have a mind to kill you." He said, Sign this," and when I remonstrated he took hold of me by the hair, took up a carving knife, and said, "Sign this, or by God I will kill you." The President: Did you read it ? I read it after I signed it." He said Do you object to anything in it. I said I objected to the words that I was pregnant by the gentleman whose name I am not allowed to mention, The President: Oh, nonsense. There must be no concealment. There is no imputation whatever on the gentleman now. Mr Dean said perhaps he had better read it. I, Catherine Edwards, do solemnly confess (the words that I am pregnant' were struck out) that I have on the 4th February, 1896, committed adultery with Mr Lloyd George, M.P., and that the said Mr Lloyd George is father of the child and that I have on previous occasions committed adultery with the above Lloyd George. Signed, 12th August, 1896, Catherine, Edwards." Witness said her husband struck out those words after she objected to them. After that she went away to Penegoes, and the child was born. She wrote a number of letters from there to her husband specially asking to be allowed to see her daughter, as she would have given any- thing to see her. These letters refer to the statement you signed ? The President: No, ycu must not say that, because they don't. Mr. Griffith If they don't refer to that they refer to nothing. The President: That is quite another matter, which will be for the jury to decide. Cross-examined by Air, Deane: She admitted her husband did not sleep regularly with her after 1894, but he did occasionally, such as when Mr. Lluyd George, M.P., was there. Is that the only occasion, or where there other occasions when he came home late ? He would come in with me. You had had one child before and therefore knew what it was to be in the family way ? Yes, but I had to consult specialists before I knew. You were not being attended for any disease or illness ? I was suffering for many years, bat no one attende d me. You were told by the husband you were pregnant. Did you believe him ? I am not sure. I was inclined to doubt him, be- cause I had none of the symptoms. Did you persevere in denying your condition when you got to the place you were confined ? I don't remember doing so. Did you deny to the doctor the night before you were confined ? I don't remember. Do you represent when you wrote those letters to your husband that you did not want his forgive. ness ? I do not want forgiveness for committing adul- tery. The President: You will notice up to this time the lady has not denied adultery. Air Deane replied, perhaps it was a slip of counsel in not asking her. Mr Griffith said he understood the lady had accounted for the letters in another way. The President: I admit she has given evidence in that direction. To Mr Griffith Do you wish to ask her the ques- tion direct ? She is not bound to answer it unless she chooses, but the inference would be obvious. Mr Griffith (to witness): Had you at this time committed adultery with any person ? Ko; I had not. Mr Deane There are four or five letters here in which you ask your husband to pardon you for the sin you have committed against him. Was it all a sham ? I don't say it was. I was in a desperate mood. I knew what kind of a man my husband was and I knew there was no other means of getting the child. Do you represent that your husband is the father of that child ? Be careful, on your oath. I do say so, solemnly. Then why write to your husband and say Of course you would not bring the child to his house if you came ?" a Because he was in such a desperate mood I was afraid of him. I don't know why I said it, but I wanted to see my child. The case was heard on November 18th, 1896, more than a year after the birth of the child. At that time had you all your senses about you. f Am I competent to give an opinion ? That is more than I can say. | You knew of the allegation that this was not # your husband's child but the child of some other man whose name is unknown. Yes, but that is not true. j When did you make Dr Beddoes' acquaintance ? | I can't quite remember. About January, 1897. t Do you remember when the case was on before 3 being seen in the corridor by your solicitor and t counsel and being shown some letters. I don't remember. Were those letters, letters which you had written t yourself. r I don't remember. They may have been many t years before. Were they written to a young man ? Yes. ] Suggesting he should meet you at your house s when your husband was out ? a I don't think so. He used to call professionally. e You knew the charge against you was of adultery with a man unknown resulting in the birth of a child. e 1 When you were shown the letters you were told by your counsel and solicitor and everybody else that if the letters were in your handwriting your case was gone. I don't remember, they referred to the letters to my husband. Did you say you reconsidered that and would take their advice and net defend the case any further ? Yes. Counsel then quoted from some of the letters in question to the other mar, tr-me of which were signed Yours very afftctioualely Katie," and with kind love. To witness Did you love him? I liked,him very much to speak to. W hy did you withdraw from the case ? I was promised by my solicitor that all my costs should be paid, the charges against the co-respond- ents withdrawn, and my money returned to me which my husband kept for me and which had been given me by my father on my marriage. I under- stood I was to have the custody of the child, but I won't be sure about that. I understood the case was to be settled privately. Has your solicitor advised you not to so into the wi'ness box and give evidence? Y, s. What is Dr Beddoes to yon that you should take his advice against that ot your own legal adviser ? My own sense of justice made me take his advice. Justice to whom Justice to myself and my daughter. Do I understand you on your oath that Air Lloyd George is absolutely of any charge made in connection with you ?—Yes, absolutely innocent. a .1 Mr Bryn Roberts. Nl. P., said he held a watching brief for Mr Lloyd George, M.P., and he wanted the three letters read which had been put in. If they were read, they wou!d entirely exculpate Mr Lloyd George. The President Not at all. -Tr George is not a rarty to the case at all and there is no kind of imputation upen him at all. Nobody in the pro- ceedings has accused him of anything. Mr Deane-I said he thought he had done all his learned friend required to show that Air Lloyd George was absolutely free from any responsibility whatever in the matter. A number cf witnesses were called and event- ually the President saia they had been playing with the case for sometime and nothing had been said which in any way disturbed the result of the pre- vious trial. To Air Griffith Do you think it worth while keeping up ? Air Griffiths admitted the difficulty of doing so. The President said it was hop-less to carry the case further and he thought the jury appeared to be of the same opinion. Mr Inderwick asked permission to call Mr Hughes, the solicitor, in reference to the charge that had been put on the record by Mrs Edwards and Dr Beddoes that he had made misrepre- sentation to her which induced her to consent to the previous judgment. Air Hughes was then called and stated that it was entirely upon Air Inderwick's advice that Mrs Edwards agreed not to defend the case. He believed the letters which had been referred to had not been shown to Dr Beddoes. The President expressed the opinion that the charge was one that ought never to have been made. The Jury formally rcturned a verdict that Mrs Edwards had beeD guilty of adultery. and his Lordship dismissed the intervention with costs as between solicitor and client. He also agreed to make the decree nisi absolute at an early date.
