OUR COMMISSIONERS. The devoted body of men who undertake to manage our town's affairs had a special meeting last week to discuss themselves, or as one or themselves put it to sit in judgment upon each other. The clerk had prepared a concise and lucid report on three different modes of election, and had also expressed an opinion upon their respective merits and defects. Strange to say the Commissioners as a body did not grapple with the question at all. Only one of them seemed to have any idea of the subject as a whole. The others dealt only with fragmen- tary parts, or indulged, as usual, in vul- gar personalities Instead of discussing the various systems sensibly and fairly the members seemed to run wild in opposition to each other. Some proposing resolutions, then withdrawing them, others proposing amendments, and further amendments which were discussed be- fore they were seconded then referred back to the proposer taken up or abandoned according to the caprice of the moment, until a Babel of confusion ensued. We are glad that in the momentary calm which followed the wholesale rejection of these propositions, someone bad the sense to refer the question to a committee, who will perhaps give a little attention to the matter before it is again discussed in public. As the ratepayers generally have an interest in the election of Commissioners we think it is the duty of the press to take up the subject and endeavour to contribute its quota towards the general enlightenment. For our part we do not think the existing system is open to all the objections stated by the clerk. We are also of opinion that most of the real ob jections which might be urged against it, are the result of the imperfect working of it by the returning officer and those who act under his guidance, and not inherent defects in the system itself. AVc be- lieve, as the clerk intimates, that no votin" papers are legal except those issued by returning officers. If all other voting papers were prohi- bited-if an alphabetical list of voters were made out as specified in sec. 26 of the Act, 1847; if the voting papers were given out in the room, and if the returning officer and poll clerks did their duty under the supervision of the candi- dates, or their agents, ten out of the thirteen objections would be disposed of. As to the other three we donot consider them verv formid- able. Two of them may be rolled iiito one, viz. open voting and inspection of the voting papers. While plurality of votes is allowed wo think it is only right that every ratepayer should see whether or not there has been any abuse of power; that power being a trust as well as a privilege. In the case of single voting a man may be allowed to exercise his own judgment without inspection or scrutiny, bnt in the case of votes ranging from two to twelve it is only right that others, who arc interested, should, if they think proper, know what is being done, The other objection is practically no objection at all. The Act gives no power of withdrawal to nominees. But it so happens that nominees are withdrawn every year, and there is nothing to prevent such withdrawals until the publi- cation of the list has taken place. As t) excitement and tumult, bribery and corruption, expense and troubb, we really have nothing to complain of at present. The last election was as tame as any moralist could de- sire it. There might have been treating, but it was to a ve-y limited extent, an 1 no ill effects WC! 0 visible. The election under the Public Health Act is objectionable, in our opinion, because it leads to greater interference with the electors and opens the way to more fraud and corruption th in the present system. When the voting papers are dclivorel at the houses it is the in some places to send agents round to hdtncncc the electors, and where it is possible to fill the pa- pers for them. In the case of illiterates the papers are filled up by interested parties, or by the collectors, who arc not always disinterested. Our advice is to leave things as they are, making the most of the powers we possess al- ready, until we arc ripe enough for incorpora- tion. The time will soon arrive when all who care for the honour and prosperity of the town will vote in favour of the mo;t perfect and dig- nilied of our systems of local self-government. I ■ C,
RHYL PETTY SESSIONS. MONDAY, SEPT. 26TII.—Before T. G. Dixon, Esq., in the chair, aud W. P. Jones, Esq. THE JURY LIST Was read over by the Chairman, and as no one ob- jected to their names being on it was signed. MR. IIANilER AND HIS BAILIFF AGAIN. —THE TABLES TURNED. JacJb Samw-h was charged by Mr. C. J. Hanmor. Englefield House, Rhyl, with assaulting him on the 17th instant. Mr. Batican Hackney, barrister, of the Midland circuit, appeared for complainant, defendant being undefended. The learned barrister, after giving a resume of the attempt to take possession of the Bettisfield estates in March last, and Mr. Hanmer's subsequent trial. on a charge of trespass before the Ilaumer magistrates, afterwards changed to one of a common assault, when he was bound over in £ 50 on his own recognizance to keep the peaeefor six months, said that ever since then Mr Hanmer had been subject to gross insults at the hands of defendant, who appeared to tempt com- plainant to violate his recognisances. On the 17th instant, Mr. Hanmer was coming along Bedford-st., and when at the corner of Water street Samuels went up to him and committed the assault complained of. Mr. Hanmer, who is 7-5 years of age, and suffers from a complicated illness, could not retaliate because lie was bound over to keep the peace. Mr. Hackney then called Charles James Hanmer, who deposed that since March last he had suffered great annoyance at the hands of the Jew," and since a conviction had been obtained against him at the County Court for 20s. and costs. Samuels had often come up to him, saying I vill have my revenge," I vill put you in gaol— I vill put de handcuffs on you myself." Last Satur- day he was going along Bedford-street to Water st., and when in the last mentioned street lie saw defen- dant coming down towards Wellington-road smok- ing a pipe. He (complainant) turned up Water-street to do his business when Samuels went up to him and said "I vill settle you," "I vill put you in gaol again," and struck at him with his fist, and had he not drawn his head back he would have been hit in the mouth or nose. A man named Edward Roberts saw the assault, and said he would be his witness. He believed the assault would be repeated. The Chairman-IIa Ie you any questions to ask, Samuels f Defendant—Yes, sir. How did you like the 14 days in gaol? ,in The Chairman—No, no. You must not ask such questions. Defendant-If you will allow me to ask him, sir, I will come to the point. The Chairman (sternly)—I shall allow you nothing that is illegal. Defendant (to complainant)—You say I attempted to strike you ? Complainant—I do. Defendant—Where did I see you ? Complainant—In Bedford-street. Defendant—What did you do on Friday-the day after yon came from prison ? Complainant—I do not know what you are alluding to. Defendant—Now, sir. I beg pardon, my lord. The Chairman I really cannot allow that. Defendant—Did you not come to the front of my shop on the parade, took £3 out of your pocket, placed them on the ground, and dared me to take them? Complainant-I did not, and you must be a per- jured man to say such a thing. The Chairman-You had better not say that, Mr. Hanmer. Mr. Hackney (to complainant)—Is there any truth in the statement about the £ 3 ? Complainant—None, whatever, sir. Edward Roberts was then sworn, and said he saw the assault complained of committed. He was walk- ing down Water-st., just behind Mr. Hanmer, when ho saw defendant, who was smoking a pipe, strike at him, saying I vill have my revenge," "I vill put you in gaol again." By defendant-I saw you smoking by Mr. Francis' chapel. Samuels, in defence, said that he had never seen the man on the Saturday, and whatever his lordship might say about smoking it was not true. He (Samuels) was a Jew, and it was against their religion to smoke on Saturdays. He was (i I years of age, and nobody had never seen him smoking on a Saturday. In conclusion, defendant said As true as there is a toua iu iit(.l(,u i nevor saw the man on Saturday. All this is done for spite. Everybody knows that he took us to Bettisfield, and the 'paragrams' can be seen in all the papers every day about what he did and said then. I have a. paper in my pocket from Mr. Hanmer to give notice that I must not pay rent to anyone but to him, or he would prosecute me." Samuels then left the box, saying I have done." The Chairman-You stand up there. We have not done with you yet. We consider that an assault has been committed in the eye of the law, though not a serious one, and as the costs are rather heavy, we will only fine you Is., with £1 14s. costs in detault I fourteen days. Defendant I will appeal against the Court's decision. The Clerk-You had better pay. Defendant—Then you won't take my appeal. The Chairman—You can take any legal action you think fit. You had better go to a solicitor. Defendant-I don't want one. I appeal against the judgment of the court. ° The money was paid at 1.30. TRESPASSING IN PURSUIT OF GAME. Allen Jones was charged by Thomas Parry with being trespassing in search of game on the 10th inst. in the day time, on certain land, over which Captain Conwy has the right to shoot. Mr. Chas. W Bell prosecuted, and Mr. M. D. Roberts (Messrs. Davie's and Roberts) defended. P.O. William H. Hughes, Rhuddlan, proved that about, 0.1 0 a.m. on the°10th instant, he and another constable were walking along the road in the neighbourhood of the Water "Works when they heard a shot in a field belonging to Pen. y-bryn Farm. He went to the field and saw Allen Jones. He asked Jones if lie hed any right to shoot on that land, who said he had, and if the witness would go with him to the house lie would show a written permission. Subsequently he (the officer) made enquiries at Bodrhyddan, and found that defen- dant had no right whatever on the land. By Mr. Roberts—I saw Mr. Roberts, Cefndy, in the field. I saw Jones first, but spoke first to Mr.. Roberts, and asked who Allen Jonos was. I know that Mr. Hugh Jones, Strawberry Gardens, defen- dant's father, has a field close by. Mr. Roberts, for the defence, said that defendant had been sent by his father, Mr. Jones, Strawberry Gardens, to see if any animals, which were in the habit of breaking into his field, had been there the pievious nignt, and not seeing thorn he had gone up the path across Penybryn field. Mr. Roberts called Hugh Roberts, Cefndy, who said that he saw Jones ] in his father's field a little bafore six on the morning in question. Mr. Jones's field joined the Penybryn field. By Mr. Bell-It was getting on for six when I saw Jones, and if the constable saw him at ten minutes ] past five lie could have had plenty of time to cross < from Penybryn field to his father's. The Chairman remarked that the Bench had no 1 doubt that the offence had been committed. The j witness for the defence did not help them at all. ( There was a long list of previous convictions against i defendant, and he would now be fined os., with 30s. < costs or 14 days in default. THE RESULT OF GETTING DRUNK ON SUNDAY. Henry TVillirtillS and Robert Wynne, both of Rhudd lan, were charged with assaulting John Morris, blacksmith, Russell-road, Rhyl, on Sunday, the 11th instant. Complainant said that at the earnest request of ] Williams's mother lie had settled the matter out of court, upon defendant paying him the sum of t The Chairman—How did you know that we would allow the matter to be settled thus. We will let it stand over until we have heard the nature of the assault, and then decide whether it shall be settled or not. The case agaiust Wynne was then proceeded with. k Comphinan t stated that on the Stiridiiy evening* referred to above he was on the Parade with his little children, when three men went up t,n(I who the h those children belonged to." He said that they were his. Wynne asked him then if lie wanted to fight, and he answered N,), and walked away in the clirect i, I fr. anectiun of Mr. J. 7' Middlehurst's house. Williams and Wynne followed him up and assaulted him. ] Williams struck him and Wynne kicked him, and pulled his watch out of his pocket, breaking the chain, aud doing considerable damage to the watch. When he saw that he retaliated and gave Wynne a 7 few blows. Mr. Middlehurst saw the assault com- d mittcd. c By Air. Chas. W. Bell (who defended Wynne)—It a was shortly after five when the assault took place. £ He did not know the defendants' names, but Police Constable Gibbons and himself took the third man to the lock-up and he supplied the names. He was positive that defendants commenced the conversation. I Wynne and Williams commenced beating at the same time. He had settled with Williams he was asked to do so. He did take off his coat, but it was after he had been sadiey abused. He did not go on the sands to fight with tho men. He had given Wynne a blow, but that was after he was kicked. A loi ter from Mr. J. E. Middlehurst was produced, but on Mr. Bell's objection it was not put in evidence. Inspector McLaren said that on this Sunday the police had rather a rough time of it, because a large number had came from Rhuddlan and Abergele- where the public-houses were closed—and got drunk. The Chairman said that Morris's evidence was so clear that the magistrates were fully convinced that a gross assault had been committed- Wynne would be fined 10s., with Cl 10s. costs in default, 14 days' imprisonment. This came out of getting drunk on Sundays. As to the case of Henry Williams, it could not be alio wed to be settled, therefore a warrant would be issued for his appearance at the next petty sessions on the 10th October. BREACH OF THE LOCAL ACT. Rowland Roberts was charged by Mr A. Rowlands, town clerk, with erecting a cottage in Warren road without giving notice to the surveyor, as required by the bye-laws of the town.—Mr Rowlands said that no attention had been paid to sanitary arrangements in the erection of this cottage and it was quite unfit for habitation.—Defendant was fined .£2 with tl 3s. costs, a distress warrant to be issued unless the mo ney was paid.—Defendant was given to understand that he would be liable to a fine of £ 2 for every day the cottage was allowed to stand, and to have it de- molished. THE WRONG MAN. John MatthtWi, Vale road, was charged by Matthew- Crummy with assaulting him on the 17th instant. From the complainant's evidence it appeared that he had been assaulted by a John Evans in the Castle Hotel, and while looking for him in High street, he was again assaulted by Matthews and a man named Peter Williams.—Two witnesses were called on each side, and the Chairman remarked that the evidence was pretty equal. He was of opinion that the wrong man had been put in the box, and dismissed the charge against Matthews.—Summonses were served upon Peter Williams and John Evans, and as they did not put in an appearance warrants were issued for their apprehension. NEGLECTING TO SEND CHILDREN TO SCHOOL. John Thomas, West street, Wellington road, charged by Mr E. Jones, was fined 5A. for neglecting to send a boy named Harry Fortman to school. A like fine was imposed upon Isaac Ellis, Vale road, for neglecting to send his son to school. CHARGES OF SHOP-LIFTING AGAINST TWO WOMEN. Alice Phillips and Mary Anne Phillips, both of Gronaut, surrendered to their bail on the charge of having stolen various articles from different shops in the town. The first case taken was the one against Alice, for stealing two pairs of woollen stockings and a piece of wool, valued at os., from the shop of Francis McKernan, High-street. Annie McKernan deposed that on the day in ques. tion both the women went up to herlhusband's shop. Mary Anne went in and asked for a pair of socks for a child 7 years old. A pair was shown, and she said they were too dear, and said she had bought a pair for 8d. Witness said she had none at the price, and the women walked out of the shop. She (witness) suspected that Alice, while Mary Anne was in the shop, had secreted some goods under her shawl. She went after her and got up her shawl and found the stockings and wool (produced), which she swore were her husband's property. Police Constable McKenna proved apprehending prisoners on the 1.5th instant, and when he charged her with the theft she admitted stealing a small pair of socks. Mary Anne was then put in the box on the charge of stealing i-everal articles of wearing apparel from the shops of Mr. J. Bridge Williams and Mr. Henry Parry, but as nothing directly was proved against her she was discharged with a caution. Alice pleaded guilty to the charge preferred against her and was finpitlo; in default, two months' hard labour. The money not being paid she was removed to Chester Castle.
PRESTATYN. PETTY SESSIONS. At the adjourned licensing meeting on Wednesday, the landlady of the Crown, Ffynnongroew, applied that her license should be reinstated as a seven-days' lieuusn,, she at the previous meeting having applied for a six day-days one. Since then her views as to the time the Sunday-closing act is to become operat- ive have undergone a change. The Bench granted the application. Thos. Win. Jones, Melidcn, charged his wife Elizabeth with threatening to poison him before ho should have his name in the rent book.' The threat being only a conditional one,' the sum- mons was dismissed. For refusing to quit licensed premises, J. Williams, Ffynnongroew, was fined 1^9 including costs.
PRESIDENT GARFIELD. A special ssrvice wns Md in the English Baptist Chapel, Sussex-street, iihyl, on Sunday evening last, 25th ult., in honour of the deceased President- The pulpit was draped in black. There was a large congregation. Mr Macgregor, who preached on the occasion, took for his text Mathew 10—27, and dwelt more especially on God speaking to His people in the darkness. He enumerated various kinds of darkness as obscurity, sorrow, persecution, and instanced many to whom God had spoken, and who came out into the light declaring what God had revealed in the dark- ness. In so proclaiming God's will he must be readV for death if need be, for good men must never hesitate to follow the divine will. Mr Macgregor then went on to show that God had spoken to the whole world in the recent dark calamity which had befallen the American people. One who feared not to lay down his life if need be for principle had passed away. Gjd had spoken in darkness. Years ago, on the death of Lincoln, when the people were in terror, and rushing hither and thither, kuowing not what to do, Mr Gar- field had stood forth, and lifting up his voice quieted their fear with the mighty worils, Clouds and dark- ness are round about Him righteousness and judg- ment are the habitation of His throne." His life 1S full of meaniug to all men, for it sliows-1, It is pos. sible to reach political eminence without s,)iliu- lOlIr character; 2, The fear of God gives a good man p even among godless man; 3, At the same time 1t snows us that the best of men are not safe from the attacks of bad men 4, A long lite of truth and good: ness will assuredly become known 5, God's purpose on earth can go forward without even the best Of men whatever happens to a good m m is all for ^l0 best. God's ways arc not our ways. The stand wb' President Garfield took for righteousness will for remain, and his death brings that stand all the prominently and powerfully before the eyes of nation. His death has a meaning for us, for —1> livqin perilous times, when lawlessness is sprea^ fast. Unbelief aud wickedness abound. We need to take our stand in the same way against evil e: We are safe in doing so, for—2, A good man is h11, mortal till his work be ended God's care is arou-o^ aim. To-morrow a great nation will weep at the Jf a great and good man. Our sympathy is icross the deep to the noble-hearted widow, a11 to the whole American people, and this evening we in sorrow praying that God, who has thus spoken J I? sp larkuess, may bring all out into the light. The be mon. which was listened to with breathless ttuutioll, 3uded with a fine peroration.
