LLANB A.DARN FAWR. PETTY SESSIONS.—At these Sessions held on Thursday, before Messrs J. G. W. Bonsall, J. T. Morgan, Nicholas Bray, J- Hughes Bonsall, Thomas James, and David Thomas, Robert Jones, of Rhy- dairy, Oswestry, was charged with keeping a dog without a license.—P.C. Davies having given evi- dence, Mr W. P. Owen who was present at the Court, assured the Bench that it was mere forget- fulness on the part of the defendant, who had no idea of defrauding the revenue and had already taken out a license.—-The defendant, who did not appear, was fined £1 and costs.—Edward Morgan and Catherine James, joint tenants of Trpedlwba Farm, Penllwyn, wore charged by the overseers of the poor for the township of Cwmrheidol with refusing to pay jB7 19: 6d, being the poor rate due 20th April.—In the absence of Mr A. J. Hughes, Mr W. P. Owen defended.—The defence of the female defendant was to the effect that her name not having been put on the list of voters could not, therefore, have been placed on the rate book, and that the money was only due from Morgan, whose name appeared on the rate book.—Mr Owen applied for an adjournment on the ground that the rate was not properly made. He might tell their worships that the rate would be paid to the clerk before Monday, and the only question that remained would be as to who was liable. It was a question of voting more than who had to pay.—The chairman said that he did not see any reason for adjourning. Edward Morgan's name was in the rate book and the demand note was served upon him, and now his sister's name appeared in the rate book. Mr Arthnr Hughes intended to prove that the sister's name was put in afterwards. They were aware that distress could be made upon one or the other. There had been no question as to the service of the demand note, and he did not see the object of adjourning it. As to the voting they had nothing to do with it. On that Bench they had no politics, and they were not in- fluenced in the slightest degree by politics.—Mr Owen said that he did not suggest that for a moment.—The Chairman, continuing, said that if the officer had done wrong the Poor Law Com- missioners could bring it before their notice, and he would be liable to a fine of £5 for the first offence and £20 for the second offence.—Au order for the payment of the rate and the costs was then made. The Cape House of Assembly on Thursday rejected by 60 votes to 11 the motion for an address to the Queeu praying for the revocation or revision of the British Southf Arioa Company's charter.
