Talgarth Police Court.


Talgarth Police Court. Friday. Before Messrs E. Butler (chairman), J. T. Boucher, and J. W. Jones. ONE DOG—TWO OFFENCES. Lewis Morgan, of Blaencwm, Cwm yoye, Mon., was summoned for allowing a dog to be at large without a collar and also for removing it from the Monmouth- shire scheduled district into the Talgarth district without a license. P.s. Bendle gave evidence, and defendant was fined 10/- in each case. FOOD COXTROL PROSECUTION. Miss Sarah Ann Morgan, Bristol House, Talgarth, was summoned by Mr James Gunter, executive officer to the Hay Rural District Food Control Committee, for selling a tin of salmon at a price ex- ceeding the maximum and also for not exhibiting a canned fish price list. Mr Lewis Jones (Brecon) appeared to prose- cute, and Mr Leigh Davies (Messrs Jeffreys and Powell, Brecon), appeared for the defendant. Mr W. Evans, a divisional inspector under the Ministry of Food, said he went to defendant's shop on June 6th and paid 1/11 for a tin of salmon, for which the proper price had been 1/8 since March 26th. He then told defendant she had charged him 2d too much and that she had not on exhibition a canned fish price list, and she replied that she had made a mistake in the price, and the list was not exhibited because she had only just had it in. Mr Leigh Davies admitted a technical offence on behalf of his client, due to the fact that she had had no fish for some time and also had been ill. The Chairman said the Bench thought it was a technical offence, but they must protect the public, and defendant would be fined £ 2 10s, including costs, in each case. STREET FOOTBALL. Raymond Martin, Rose Cottages, David Jones, Church Villa, Harvey Parry, Phoenix House, Thomas Jarman, High- street, and Frederick Williams, Liverpool Stores, all Talgarth, were charged with playing football in a public place on June 16th. Mr W. Jones-Williams (Brecon) appeared for the defence. P.s. Bendle said he saw the five defen- dants playing football on the Square at 9 p.m. Jarman, Parry and Jones were fined 5/- each, and the summonses against Martin and Williams were dismissed.
