ABERYSTWYTH. Our representative in Aberystwyth is Mr. J. DENLEY SPENCER, 32, High Street, to whom notice should be given of all events required to be reported in the COUNTY TI MKS. BRUTAL ASSAULT OX A WOMAN.—At the Police Court on Monday morning before Aldermen Peter Jones, and W. H. Palmer, a rough looking man named George Blair, a labourer, was charged with cutting and wounding a woman named Hannah Evans, with whom the prisoner had been living as man and wife.—The woman appeared before the Court with her head heavily bandaged. She said that the prisoner quarelled with her and turned her out of the house. She came back about, 10-30 with a child in her arms. and the prisoner who was standing on the step of the doorway called out to her come in my girl; there wil1 be nothing more between me and you." Upon that she went in and just as she put her head inside the doorway she received a heavy on the head from a poker which the prisoner held in his hand concealed be- hind the door. She became uncons -ions. The prisoner was not drunk at the time.—I n his cross- examination of the witness the prisoner sought to show that the woman hud taken his money and instead of purchasing food sue had gone away and got drunk. He came in about six o'clock hur the fire was out and there was no food prepared.—P.S. Davies stated how the prisoner was brought to the police station about 11-30 on the Saturday night in charge of two men named Ed J.,nes and Chamber- lain, and they told him in the presence of the prisoner that the latter had nearly killed his wife. He went down to Trefechan and there saw Dr Thomas who was dressing the wounds on th" woman's head. From what he was told he took possession of the poker produced. He then returned to the station and charged the prisoner with cutting and wounding the woman, and the prisoner replied No I did not touch her, she was (lrunk.Dr Thomas said that he was called in and examined the women on the Saturday night. Her head was covered with blood, and on the scalp there was a blood tumour about two inches in cir- cumference. There was on the surface of this a cnt about an inch ion?, and on probing it blood issued freely from it. The poker produced must have caused tile wound.—Cross-examined If she had struck her head against the door post it would have caused the wound.Th* case was then adjourned until Wednesday to allow of the presence of another witness. — Afterwards the magistrates returned and decided to treat the case as one of common assault, finding the man guilty, and he was fined 10s and costs and bound over to keep the peace. PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE.— Alderman Peter Jones (chairman) presided over the committee meeting held held on Monday evening, and there were also present Councillors U. Peake, Isaac Hop- kins, John Watkin, junr., with Messrs. H. L. Evans (borough accountant), and Rees Jones (borough surveyor).—Labour sheets for the town and water- works departments were presented, amounting to £85 12s. 8d., and passed.—A large number of bids were also presented and passed. The Borough Accountant presented a statement showing tne expenditure incurred by the Corporation on the occasion of the Royal visit. The chief items were --Barricading the streets, £2:2 Is 8d decorations, £409 12s; public accommodation, £19 14s 2d; stabling 15s lid; fireworks, £80; Royal address, £26 5s; making in all a grand total of JE834 16s 3d. Th. amount realised by sale of timber,, etc., was £162 15s 2d, showing the actual amount expended to be £672 Is Id.—The Chairman said that it was much below the estimate of the Council, as they certainly anticipated an outlay of between JE800 or £ 900.—A basement plan of the proposed alterations at the University of Wales were submitted and approved. Plans of two new houses to be erected on Victoria Terrace were submitted and examined. The elevation was identical with the rest of the houses on this Terrace and were passed.—The Surveyor reported that there was a plentiful supply of water at Plyn- limon Reservoir, and enough to last them for two months at least.—Councillor Peake said that this was better than Cardiff, the metropolis of Wales— (laughter)—where they were on a short allowance (renewed laughter).—Messrs Hosking and Miller were the only applicants for supplying slate slabs for channelling, and their tender was accepted.— The Surveyor requested to know what the com- mittee intended doing with the aftermath on the Flats, and the Chairman suggested that he should see the Town Clerk respecting an application ra- ceived from Birmingham Volunteers for the use of the Flats during the next month. PETTY SESSIONS.—WEDNESDAY. Before Messrs J.J. Griffiths, J. Hopkins, R. J. Jones, E. P.Wynne, Edward Evans, T. Hughes Jones, and John Lewis. DRUNKENNESS.—A labouring man named Robert Bland, Skinner street, was charged by P.C. Owen with being drunk on July 25th.—Fined 2s 6d including costs. DONKEY ASTRAY.—Albert Dawson, Trefechan, was charged by P.C. Powell with allowing his donkey to stray.—The case was dismissed. OBSTRUCTIONS IN TERRACE ROAD.—David Phillips, cab proprietor, was summoned for obstructing Terrace road with his carriages and horses.—Mr W. P. Owen appeared for the defendant and Mr A. J. Hughes, Town Clerk, prosecuted.—Mr Hughes stated that an arrangement had been come to if the magistrates consented, whereby the charge of touting would be withdrawn and Mr Phillips had agreed to allow himself to be bound over for the rest of the charges.—The Bench consented to this course being carried out and the Court adjourned until 2.30 p.m.
MACHYNLLETH. REFUSING TO DO HIS TASK.—At the Police Court on Wednesday before Mr Edward Davies, a tramp named John Jones was brought up in custody charged with refusing to do his task at the Work- house, and he was sent to prison for seven days with hard labour. INTERMEDIATE EDUCATION BOARD. Rev Josiah Jones presided over a meeting of the governors held at the School on Wednesday, and there were also present Mrs Davies, Messrs R. Rees, Wm. Jones, John Thomas, Edward Hughes, Dr Edwards, Daniel Howell with Mr John Row- lands, clerk, and Mr D. P. Jones, assistant clerk. SCHOLARSHIP EXAMINATION. Mr Tetley, Newtown, briefly reported as follows: In reading, nearly every candidate displayed a more or less strongly marked accent in his or her speech. With some exceptions the writing was good, while the dictation was in most cases well done. The marks in arithmetic came out low, with one ex- ception. This is due chiefly to carelessness on the part of candidates. Every candidate displayed but arithmetic QP to standard vi work, I n lnaccurate workmanship rendered all useless. up h £ raPhy some very good papers were sent markn'hi S-Dme candidates displayed the most re- tant to 8 °f the position of such impor- —-whichh8 a8 Liverpool and rivers as the Thames, places in lllserted with a number of other the best nartH map of England.

M. Jones seconded, and it was carried ^-O the proposition of the Chairman a vote of tii 1-° was passed to Mr Tetley for his report upo^tlm examination. HEADMASTER'S REPORT. Mr Meyler the headmaster, presented his report for the quarter, and it was considered in com- mittee. Bi'fiSUEIES. Mr Wm Jones asked what about the bursuries for the children outside the district who had taken the recent scholarships.—The Clerk said that there were no applications. Mr Wai Jones They do not knew that they have passed.—The matter "was left over. VACANCY THE STAFF. Mr Meyler reported that Mr Watson the assistant master was leaving and he asked that steps should be taken to procure another master in his place.— The Governors agreed to offer £100 for another assistant master, and the matter to be left in the headmaster's hauds.—MrW. M. Jones thought that it should be a Welshman with Welsh sympathies. A VACANCY ON THE COUNTY BODY. A letter was read from Mr G. D. Harrison, in- forming the Governors that owing to the non- attendance of Canon Trevor at the meetings cj the County Body for the space of a year the seat had now become vacant.—The Clerk said that ho was not aware of the reason for the County Clerk advis- ing them of the vacancy unless it was merely on she ground of information.—Mr Rd Rees said that Canon Trevor had taken a good deal of interest in education and it was agreed that the Clerk should I communicate with Canon Trevor and ask his view of the matter. SCHOOL FUNDS. A letter was read from Mr. G. D. Harrison stat- ing that the sum standing to the credit of the schools on 31st March 'ast, amounted to £ 466 10s 3d — (hear, hear)—and the estimated amount of in- come for the current year was £349 14s 7gd. SALARIES, ETC. Salaries and bills amounting to £2305" 10d were presented for payment by the Finance Committee and on the proposition of Dr. Edwards it was decided to pay the bills. THE ROYAL VISIT. On the proposition of Mr. Davies secouded by Mr. Richard Rees, a vote of thanks was passed to Lady Londonderry acknowledging the work done by her ladyship on the occasion of the Royal visit. TILL PROPOSED NEW BUILDINGS. The Clerk explained that at present the contract for taking over the field for the sire of the school was prepared, but £40 was to be put down before it was completed and the solicitors were anxious that some decision should be arrived at. There was a sum of money in the bank to the Building Fund, but not enough.—Mr. John Thomas thought it was time that they moved on.—Mr. W. M. Jones pro posed and Mr. John Thomas seconded that a cheque for £40 should be drawn out.— Mr. Rees asked if they were goi:jg to take any further steps just now as time was Hying and the short days would be upon them,—The Clerk said there was a resolution on the books that so soon as the Royal visit was over, the committee appointed should arrange for collecting subscriptions.—Mr. Rees then moved and Dr. Edwards seconded and it was carried that the committee be called together at once. There was no other business of importauce.
ABERDOVEY. I THE HARBOUR.—The trade of the port has not been so brisk for a long time. There are three large steamers discharging cargoes this week, in- cluding the s.s. "Iim" (2,000 tons reg) with a load of timber from the Baltic. The schooner Prirnuh" (Frederick Shalc1) has also cliseharged a cargo of timber from Xova Scotia. In addition to these there are several Abcrdovey schooners loading slates for various destinations. SCDDEX DEATH. -We have this week to chronicle the death of Mr. Robert Hughes, fishmonger, of Church street, which took place suddenly on Friday last. Mr. Hughes was about 60 years of age, and had been ailing during the spring, but he recu- perated, and was considered to be in a fair way towards recovery, when he was suddenly attacked, and expired about four o'clock. Dr. Grosholz was immediately called in, but his assistance was not required on arrival, the poor fellow having drawn his !ast breath. Deceased was well known in the neighbourhood, and for years past had acted as the town crier. He was a member of the Wesleyan Chapel, and leaves a widow and four children, with whom the greatest sympathy is shown. CHURCH SUNDAY SCHOOL TRIP. The annual trip took place on Wednesday, July 22, the rendezvous selected being Oswestry. The weather was de- lightful, and a large number availed themselves of the opportunity of visiting the noted market town. The train left Aberdovey at 8 a.m., the children being in charge of their teachers. The Vicar, owing to the continued illness of Mrs. Rowlands, was unable to join the party, and much regret was ex- pressed at the absence of himself and Mrs. Row- lands. Oswestry was reached about eleven o'clock, and the members at once wended their way to the Church Mission R#oms, where refreshments had been prepared for them, under the superintendence of Mrs. Jones (Pier House) and Miss Thomas (Caprera House), both of whom arrived in Oswes- try the previous day in order to make the neces- sary preparations- These ladies were very kindly assisted by several members of tae school, and also by ladies connected with the Oswestry Welsh Church, who generously rendered good service on the occasion. Tea was provided in the same place at 3 p.m. The pleasure-seekers visited all the places of interest in the town, and in the evening paid a visit to the encampment of the Indefatig- able boys. Before leaving the Missisn Rooms, on the proposition of Mr. E. R. Roberts, seconded by Mr. Edward Jones, Terrace Road, votes of thanks were accorded the Vicar of Oswestry for his kindness in allowing the use of the Mission Rooms, and the ladies who had kindly arranged and superintended the meals. Several members whose names were coupled with the resolutions suitably responded. A vote of condolence and sympathy with the Vicar of Aberdovey and Mrs Rowlands at their inability to attend through ill- ness was also passed, and hopes expressed that Mrs Rowlands would soon recover. In addition to those mentioned the following assisted materially to the success of the outing:—Mr Jones (Pier House), Capt. Edwards, Messrs E. R. Roberts (superinten- dent), W. J. Eves (treasurer), Edward Jonns (Terrace-road), Evan Davies, junr.. John Hendries, J. W. Green, &c. The party arrived home about ten. The complimentary opinions expressed testified to the enjoyment in which all had participated. +
TRIAL OF DR. JAMESON. The Jameson trial was continued at the Royal Courts of Justice on Monday, and the defence was brought to a close. Sir E. Clarke, in addressing the jury, said the expedition went with purposes solely humanitarian and was in no sense a hostile one, and therefore the defendants had not commit- ted any offence for which they could be punished. He again contended that the Foreign Enlistment Act was not in operation, and also argued that Pitsani-Potlogo was not within British territory. Sir F. Lockwood said that his clients, Colonel Grey and Major Coventry, had taken no part in tho pre- paration of any expedition. The Attorney-General having replied, the Court adjourned till Tuesday. The trial was brought to a close on Tuesday. In summing up the case to the jury, the Lord Chief Justice (Lord Russell of Killowen), who explained that he spoke with the concurrence of the other learned judges (Mr. Baron Pollock add Mr. Justice Hawkins), said that if a person even outside Her Majesty's dominions were engaged iu preparing, fitting out, or aiding and abetting the preparation of an expedition within the meaning of the Foreign Enlistment Act, that person, being a British sub- ject would be guilty of an offence urder the Act. It could not be contested that the Republic was a friendly State, nor could it be contested that the expedition was formed, nor could be denied that it was intended to march, and that it did march, into the Transvaal, and that it did thereby violate the territory of a friendly State. Was it intended that if its march was resisted it would meet that resistance by force ? They knew that it did do so. On this point he must give a specific direction in law of what a military expedition was, and the jury would see whether the facts of the case answered to that definition. An expedition was not the less an expedition against the dominions of a friendly State if it was not aimed at the overthrow of the Republic, or if it was prompted by philanthropic or humane motives, or if it was only to aid in securing some reform of the laws. If the expedition was designed to enter the Trausvaal with intentions by show of force to interfere with the constituted Government and the laws of the Transvaal, and to procure by such means a reform of those laws or the administration cf the laws, or if it was intended to combine with others in overawing the Government in order to obtain a change in the law it would be an expedi- tion against the dominions of a friendly State. If these things were done by the authority of the Queen or by the authority of any other sovereign power, it would be an act of war. If they were done by unauthorised subjects of the Queen it would be a criminal filibustering raid into the dominions of a friendly State. Dealing with the position of British Bechuanaland and the Chartered Company, his Lordship said that various proclamations had placed the country under the dominion of the British Crown, and the defendants knew the authority under which they acted. The defendants were told by the re- sponsible officer of the Queen immediately after entering the Transvaal that they were perpetrat- ^g an act which was a violation of a friendly tate and which was repudiated by the Govern- ment, and yet these men, holding the Queen's commission, persevered in it. In conclusion, the earned judge said the questions which he should J8"' °JU17 to answer were—Were the defen- j.. 1 any> au(I which of them, engaged in l • J)reParati°n of a military expedition at Mafe- tlipm _a friendly State and were any of with mnV> W 1Cb ^hern> employed in connection reference to\,expedltlon- These questions had also would b« f u° PreP*rafcions afc Pitsani. The jury Lr Lr!l r,thferasked w.hether Her Majesty! by SovereieTitv^8, 1Vf^' exer^se^ fact dominion and situated AfJ^ v,6 in which Pitsani was reCS, aJd aWce tb? all the qnestions in the findings amounted to a verdict of guilty. Dr. Jame- son was sentenced to fifteen months, Major John .Wdloughby to ten months, Major Robert White to seven months, and Colonel Grey to five months imprisonment, all without hard labour.
AN IMPORTANT TEST CASE AT WELSHPOOL. THE CORPORATION SUE A FORMER WELSH- POOLSOLICITOH. A BATTLE OF WORDS BETWEEN CHAIRMAN AND ADVOCATE. Much interest was manifested in a ease in which the Mayor and Corporatbn of Welshpool were the plaintiffs. and Mr. Willian Shuker Clarke, solicitor, of Birmingham, formerly of Welshpool, the defend- ant. Mr. W. H. Bott, Cswestry, appeared for the Mayor and Corporation, and Mr. Martin Woosnam, Newtown, for the defendant. The Bench of magistrates was composed of MF. D. P. Owen (ill the chair), Messrs. Samuel Powell, I W. Rogers, and Maurice Jehn. Mr. Bott, in opening tke case, said the defendant was owner of certain property in this borough, and the summons was taken out against him by thr Borough Surveyor (Mr. G. Snook) on behalf of the Mayor and Corporation to recover the sum of JE11 15s lid, being his proportion of the costs incurred by the Corporation at th) request of the defendant, by his agent, in paving and channelling a place known as Wellington Crescent, and which is not a highway repairable by the public at large within the meaning of Public Health Act of 1375. Pressure having been brought to bear on the Town Council by owners of property abutting on this Wellington Crescent, it was resolved that the street should be made properly by the Corporation, and instead of serving formal legal notice upon all the owners, the matter was done by what he ventured to describe as a common arrangement, by which the Corporation, instead of holding the owners at arm's length, gave way to them, and accordingly in- structed its borough surveyor to prepare an auth- ority, signed by the owners, authorising him to carry out the work, they giving an undertaking to pay their proportiou of the cost, and by that under- taking the defendant made himself responsible for the work done. The work was accordingly done, and the usual notice of the proportion of the cost payable by each defendant was given in the usual way, the defendant included, and not until thou was any objecticn made to paying tho proper pro- portion of costs. That beins. so, he submitted that the Corporation was entitled to recover the sum claimed in the information. They submitted that the defendant was liable, first of all upon the signed authority, and secondly, because the work had been done at the request of the defendant. It was open to the defendant to do the work himself, but he would have had the obligation placed upon him of doing the work to the satisfaction of the local authority, and if he had done the work separately for himself, instead of letting the whole be done as one piece of work, that it would cost him more than he now had to pay. In bringing that case they felt it was discharging a public duty, the Corporation feeling that they could not improve private persons' property at the public expense, and therefore asked the Bench to support them in their action. Mr. Woosnam asked Mr. Bott if he relied on the section of the Act or upon the agreement between the Corporation and his client. Mr. Bott said he relied in the first instance upon section 150 of the Public Health Act, 1875. and in the second place upon the authority signed by the defendant, so that his gun was a double-barrelled one. Mr. Woosnam We must not have any double- barrelled game. His friend must go upon the sec- tion or upon the agreement. He seemed to think that if be could not succeed on the section, he was entitled to go on the agreement. Mr. Bott: Precisely. Mr. Woosnam We have cannon to right of us and cannon to left of us. Mr. Bott: And you will have cannon in front of you, directly. Mr. Woosnam said he had a perfect answer to both, but he was entitled to know on which ground they were going. He submitted they could only proceed on the section. Mr. Bott: I rely on both the authority and the section. Mr. Woosnam: That is my friend's contention, but you will observe that the summons is taken out under the section referred to, and therefore nothing is mentioned of the agreement on which he relies. I take it that he must go under one or the other.. The Chairman The only question is whether or not the agreement would upset you ? Mr. Woosnam I quite see your Worship's point. We are summoned to appear here under the Public Health Act, for not complying with section 150. We have no mention whatsoever of any agreement upon which the Cor) "ration intend to rely; other- wise, we should be prepared to meet it, but even now I am prepared to meet this case, either upon the section or the agreement. It does not matter which, but let me know which to fight and I will do so. Mr Bott said he did not put the authority in as an independent ground, but more to rub in the section, so that there might be no getting out of it. Mr Woosnam was trying to shelter behind a technicality to get his client out of his own under- taking. Mr Woosnam said they were not raising tech- nicalities for the purpose of getting out of the pay- ment of the money. They had tendered what they believed to be a just proportion of the expense, and they were perfectly prepared to help the Corporation as far as they were liable, but they must not ask them to go further. Mr. Bott said the tender was one half, and that offer had since been withdrawn. Mr. Woosnam said it was refused by the Town Clerk, and it was unfair to say that it was with- drawn. The Chairman: I think it is perfectly right for the Corporation to say it was offered and refused. Mr. Woosnam Supposing there is an agreement —let us be clear on the point-under what sectiou does my friend say that even the Corporation has a right to enter into it ? I shall be delighted to be enlightened on the point. Let us clear the law first, and we will go into the law afterwards. After some further discussion the Chairman ruled that they should first go upon section 150 of the Act, and then the agreement might be put in to be considered. <0 Mr Woosnam said he would be quite content with that. George Snook said he had been Surveyor to the Welshpool Corporation for eight years. Before the improvements were made, which were done under his direction, the thoroughfare known as Wellington Crescent was not a public highway; but there was a permissive right at one end. It had never been, to his knowledge, repaired by the local authority. At the time the work was suggested in the Council, Mr Pryce Jones, the ageut, who was then a member of the Council, was most anxious that the work should be done. The improvements were decided upon, and carried out. He arrived at the amount due from each owner according to the proportion of the frontage of the premises. One had paid his projiortion Dr Sowerbv—-which was £25 9s Id. Mr. Bott asking witness if he saw Mr. Pryce Jones signing the" authority to do the work. Mr. Woosnam objected to the authority being put In, saying there was no power under the Public Health Act to put in the agreement. Mr. Bott said he would quote the authority pre- sently. Mr. Woosnam said if he put it m he did so wiuh all responsibility. It was not stamped, and there was no mutuality to the contract; it was not under the seal of the Corporation, and if Mr. Bott put it in he dropped proceeding under the Act of Parlia- mente The Clerk Then the question comes whether the minute book is not evidence and that does not re- quire a stamp. Mr. Bott: Only specific things required to be under the seal of the Corporation. Mr. Woosnam I am prepared to sustain every one. Their worships have elected to proceed under section 150 of the Act, and I must insist of my friend to go under it. Surely, I must ask for their worships' ruling to be observed. The Chairman ruled that the authority should be put in. Mr. Woosnam: I don't like to say it, but by putting the agreement in it puts the Town Clerk in an unenviable position. „ Mr. Bott: I take the responsibility of putting it in. -7 1. The Chairman (after the document had been handed iu and examined) said that their clerk (Mr. E. L. R. Jones) had advised that it could not be put in. It was not stamped. Mr. Woosnam I am very glad- Continuing, in reply to Mr. Bott, witness said he wont to Mr. Pryce Jones about the improvements to the Wellington crescent property. He met him in the presence of Mr. Clarke, who said that Mr. Pryce Jones would sign on his behalf. Mr. Woosnam Well! The Chairman I think that makes the document to a certaiu extent valid. Mr. Woosnam again objected, saying that they could not go upon the agreement. Mr. Bott was now examining upon a document which could not be put in. The Bench had decided, and rightly he thought, that the prosecution must proceed upon the section of the Act of Parliament. If the docu- ment was not an agreement it did not ccme in at all The Chairman What about the viva voce of Mr. darker Mr. Woosnam We absolutely deny it. I object to Mr. Bott proceeding, as no notice was given to the owners as was required by the section. Whore is the notice? Let it be proved. Mr. Bott said he did not produce any notice, as defendant said Do not bother about notice, do the work," and therefore he contended it was not necessary to give notice. The Chairman 1 should think that the fact of a complaint having been made ought to bo sufficient for yon to accept without the necessity of a notice being given. :1 I'. VVoosnam I accept nothing, not even from the Corporation, much aa I respect them. The Chairman (to =\11". Bott): Did you give notice? Mr. Butt: Xo. we did not. By the request of the defendant, it was stopped, and the defendant waived his right to any notice under the section. Mr Bott proceeded to examine the witness upon the(locunwnt, when Mi- Woosnam again objected, saying if it was 125 times he would object. The Bench had decided to go under Section 150, which was as follows: Where any street within an urban district (not being a highway repairable by the inhabitants at large), or the carriage way, footway or any other part of snch street is not sewered, levelled, paved, metalled, flagged, channelled, and made good, or is not lighted to the satisfaction of the urban authority, such authority may, by notice addressed to the respective owners or occupiers of the pre- mises fronting, adjoining, or abutting on such parts thereof as may require to be sewered, levelled, paved" metalled, flagged, or channelled, or to be lighted, require them to sewer, level, pave, metal, flag, channcll, or make or to provide proper means for lighting the same within a time to be specified in such notice." Under that Section, it would he seen, that before giving such notice the urban authority shall cause plans and sections of any structural works intended to be executed tinder this section, and an estimate of the probable cost thereof, to be made under the direction of their surveyor, such plans and sections to be on a scale of not less than one for ten feet for a vertical section, and, in case of a sewer, showing the depth of such" sewer below the surface of the ground, such plans, sections, and estimate shall bo deposited in the office of the urban authority, and shall be open at all reasonable hours for the inspection of all persous interested therein during the time specified in such notice, and a reference to such plans and sections without requiring any copy of such plans and sections to bo annexed to such notice." He in- sisted that the notice be served strictly, together with the matter of the plans and estimates, and he must insist that the notices be served strictly. It had been held over and over again, and it was as clear as noon-day that this must be done. As to the plans and estimates not one word had been said. Mr Bott You have not given me a chance. Mr. Woosnam: Yourfirststepistoput in the llotice and to prove that the section has been complied with. There is a decision in tho High Courts to the effect that unless notice has been given to the owner or occupier to do the work, the expenses cannot be recovered from the former. That was decided in the case of Jarrow Local Board v. Kennedy, 6 Law Reports, 6 Queen's Bench Division, page 128, where it says" if the preliminary notice to pave, &c., be not given, the expenses cannot afterwards be recovered for the owner has a right to the notice to afford him an opportunity of con- testing his liability on the ground that the street is not a high way repairable by the inhabitants at large." When you prove the notice under that sectiou you are at perfect liberty to proceed, and I shall be prepared to answer it. Mr. Bott But by his signed request, I urge, the defendant is absolutely prevented from taking ad- vantage of his own actions by his agent. It would be a gross injustice if the defendant by a threat of this kind should be allowed to take advantage of his own act. In the case of Silcox v. Handsworth Local Board, Staffordshire, 8 Law Reports, 6 Queen's Bench Division, page 39, it was held that the re- spondents were not bound before executing such works. Mr Woosnam That has nothing to do with this case. Mr Bott, to witness: Were plans and sections prepared ? Mr. Woosnam That I object to. The section must be complied with first. The Chairman I think Mr. Bott is perfectly right in asking a servant of the Corporation what his orders were, and if the orders were on the minute book. t Mr (Woosnam said he ahotild continue to objeofc.- The Chairman said Mr Bott, please go on. We are going to hear you. Mr. Woosuam And you will not hear me ? But you will have to. The Chairman Yes, 1 know that. Mr Woosnam 1 intend to make my objections. The Chairman Then we will adjourn the Court. Mr. Woosnam Very well, adjourn. The Chairman Iordel that Mr Bott go on. Mr Snook then continued to give his evidence, stating that he had prepared plans, &c., for the work, which were deposited at tho Town Clerk's office. He never heard about paying half the cost of the work until the deputation attended before the Council. There were four owners among the depu- tation, there being a representative from the fifth. Mr Pryce Jones was one of tKe deputation. Mr. Woosnam How long have you been borough surveyor ? Eight years.—You are acquainted with the Public Health Act of 1875 ? I have read it.— And you have read Section 150? Yes.—Did you give the owners notice in accordance with that Section ? The one who objected received a notice according to the Act of Parliament. The other owners were agreeable, and did not receive notice. The Chairman: Who was the owner ?—Mr Thos. Pritchard. Mr. Woosnam Did you serve Mr Clarke with a notice ? It was not necessary. He was agreeable, in the presence of Mr. Pryce Jones.—And Dr. Sowerby has paid ? Yes.—Has any of the others paid ? They have not.—And you have not sum- moned any one of them? No; not at present. How is it the others have not been summoned ? The Chairman I don't think he ought to be cross-examined on that point, and I should advise him not to answer it. Mr Woosnam objected, and said the Chairman had no right to teach the witness to give evidence. The Chairman: I am not teaching him, but I think he ought not to answer the question. Mr. Woosnam observed that if that went on he should have to take a very serious step. He should put the question again if the Chairman objected, so be it. The witness then said he could not answer it. He had caused plans and estimate of the probable cost to bo deposited at the proper office.—Vv here are thev ? The Town Clerk has them.—-Mr. Woos- nam: I call for them.—Certain documents were handed in to which Mr. Woosnam said they were not the proper ones. Now where was Mrs. Lewis, who was the owner of some land abutting on this road. Why was not Mrs Lewis given notice ? She did not sign the agreement. Had Mrs Lewis been charged anything at all ? Witness No, she has not.—And you cannot give any reason why ? No. —Therefore her proportion must have been saddled on to the other five members ? No. Her cost is not included in the apportionment of the other five.—You have mentioned something about an agreement signed as an authority ? Yes.—Since when have you found out that it was an authority and not an agreement ? The Chairman: Is that a material question.—-Mr Woosnam Very material.—Witness I call it an authority or a guarantee to carry out the work. They were very anxious to have it done.—You did not ask the Corporation to sanction it ? I did not think it necessary.—Were you ordered to do the work by the Corporation ? Yes.—You have had some conversation with the Town Clerk upon this matter ? Mr Bott: 1 say that any conversation between witness and the Towu Clerk is not evidence. Mr Woosnam: lam asking witness whether the Town Clerk has not mentioned that this is an agreement between the parties. The Chairman I don't think you ought to put such a question to a servant of the Corporation. I should tell him not to answer it. Mr Woosnam asked that this objection of the Chairman be entered on the records. Witness admitted having had a good deal of con- versation with the Town Clerk, but not about the document. It was a thing he had done before many times. The notice to Mr Pritchard was not written out by hiai. Mr Woosnam asked witness whether, as the plaintiff, he was proceeding under the agreement or under the Section ? The Chairman I don't think he ought to answer that. He is simply the mouthpiece of the Corpora- tion in all public matters. Mr. Edward Jones, Town Clerk, said in the dis- charge of his duties he kept the minutes. He re- membered the ineetiDg of the Council, when the memorial for the repair of the street was received from the occupiers there. He handed the memorial in. Mr. Woosnam objected to it. The Chairman ruled that the memorial should be read. Continuing, the Town Clerk said Mr. Pryce Jones was one who attended with the deputation on the matter. He was looked upon as Mr. Clarke's agent, and the same was entered on the minutes. Mr. Woosnam: YVo are not bound by your minutes. You can put anything on your minutes. The Chairman That is a very serious allega- tion. You are clerk to public Boards yourself, and ought to know something of such matters. Mr. Woosnam Dangerous or not 1 say it. Cross-examined: No notice was given to the owners. Mr. Pryce Jones did not, so far as he was aware, tender £5 18s 6d as payment, of half the cost of the work. If he had he should not have taken it. Mr. Woosnam, for the defence, said that no one regretted more than Mr. Clarke, the necessity for appearing before them to oppose the complaint. They knew perfectly well that the Public Health ict was framed not for the benefit of the Urban Authority any more than it was framed for the individuals who lived within its boundaries and who contributed towards the rating and so forth of that borough. There were very great safeguards made by that Act of Parliament both on behalf of corporate bodies and also on behalf of individuals, whilst owners of property had also been safeguar- ded in many material particulars, and es- pecially so by Eection 150 of the Act of Parliament which he had quoted. Now that section was no doubt framed for the purpose of giving the owners of property an opportunity, if they chose, of carrying out any necessary structural works of a permanent nature before allowing the authority to put in force their compulsory powers. That was the object of the section no doubt. At any rate, the Legislature thought it was quite right that plans of the struc- tural works and other particulars should be given to the owners for inspection before the compulsory powers in this section were put in force, and the Legislature decided that as a primary step before this it was absolutely essential that the notices under the Act should be served upon the owners, giving them the privilege which they had conferred upon them. How had that been done ? That was the first point. The section, in his opinion, was clear, and he might be excused if he read once again. It said distinctly that notice addressed to tle respective owners r ncon piel's of premises fronting or abutting on such streets should be served upon them, and it also stated that before giving the notice the Urban Authority should cause plans, etc., to be deposited for the inspection of the owners at-the office of the authority. Not one single provision had been carried out by the borough surveyor. They not only complained that the provisions of the section had not been com- plied witt, but Mr Clarke lived in Birmingham, and why should he be made an example of any more than the other owners. It was time that Dr. Sowerbv had paid his share. He took it that Dr. Sowerby was a gentleman of means, and did not want a bother. The law did not say that one owner should be summoned alone; it said each owner. But here Mr Clarke was singled out as a test case. There was no testing case about it at all, and it was a condition precedent to these pro- ceedings that notice should first be given. Now that was his objection. 11 was admitted in evidence both by the Surveyor and the Town Clerk, that only in one case was a notice written out, and not a plan was deposited before the notice, because there was no notice. Mr Bott: I distinctly proved that notice was served in one case (Mr Pritchard) and that plans were deposited at the Town Clerk's office. Mr Woosnam Be it so. That is entirely a secondary matter. The plans must have been pre- pared and deposited before giving such notice. The Chairman: Don't you think the action of the deputation acquiesced ? Mr Woosnam said that was not the thing. It made no difference whatever. Noagreemeut, what- ever it might be, not even custom could over-ride a positive Act of Parliament. Io was the highest authority that could be put down for the guidance of the pe pIe, and not even the House of Lords deviated from it. (The Chairman: Nor the Commons). It was framed clearly for the protection of owners, as well as for the protection of urban bodies. There had neither been produced any estimate of the expense, and if that was the way the surveyor to the Corporation of Welshpool made out his estimates — well, keep him from it. That was all he had to say about it. He was an owner of property. He was not blaming the Cor- poration or the Town Clerk, but the Surveyor ought to have given these notices. It was done in every borough, and the notices were to be obtained printed from all law stationers. The Local Government Board had. framed them, and yet, the fust, element of the Act WäØ not omplied with. Then his friend turned round and said they did not care about Acts of Parliament, when they had a request. He could only say that his client was prepared at that moment to pay his portion. He asked the prosecution not to cast upon them a slur, which had baen hinted at, when they were pre- pared to pay every farthing of it, but proportion it accurately. There was one owner who had not been asked to sign it at all. There was one owner who never had notice that the improvements were going to be carried out., aud yet they were to be made a butt and an example of for the defects of Mr. Snook. He resented it with all the contempt it deserved. Again he said they were prepared to pay their proportion, If the prosecution came to them for the money, they would be paid at once but they must first comply with the sections of the Act of Parliament The defendant had offered what he believed to be right-viz., and that had been refused. Mr. Pryce Jones certainly went to the fown Clerk, and he refused it. He distinctly blamed Mr. Snook for not having com- plied with the Act of Parliament, as he ought to have done. They had been made a test case. and it had been fought as a test case. He asked the Bench to say that the section of the Act not having !?f0? with in serving the proper notices, that the plaintiffs were entirely out of Court. 11ft Bott submitted that the Bench was not oun1 p hard and fast words of Act, and urge at this was a case in which notice was no required. The work had been done, and the defendants 1 operty benefited, and for the defendan to Lake advantage of his own wrong seemed dishonest. I t came with ill grace to take advantage of his own professional knowledge as well as the skill of his friend in order to get out of a moral and legal way of paying his liabilities. He asked for an order for the payment of the amount claimed, £11 16s 11d. and interest at the rate of 5 per cent, from Februarv 20th last, and also an order for costs. The Bench retired, and on returning the Chair- man said they considered that the action of the deputation of owner.3 and agents in waiting upon the Corporation was sufficient to waive the question of notice required. Plans were deposited at the proper office. Mr Clarke was then called, and said he was the owner of the property referred to by the Surveyor, and he was a solicitor practising at Birmingham. He had been in correspondence with the Town Clerk on this matter. He certainly never received any notice that the Corporation of Welshpool intended to carry out this work, and he never knew that any plans had been deposited as stated by the Surveyor, nor that he had prepared any statement apportioning the expense between the different owners. Mr Pryce Jones acted as his agent in the collection of rents. Mr Pryce Jones did not sign for the whole amount. He never gave him any authority to sign for the whole amount, but he con- sented to one-half. Mr Pryce Jones bad nothing to do with the management of the property. He was agent for particular purposes, but not for special agency under the law of agency. He had no intimation that the work was going to be done until it was done. He wrote to Mr Pryce Jones asking him to make a legal tender to the Town Clerk, and he had a reply to the effect that this had been done. Mr J. Pryce Jones said he was an agent for the collection of rents for Mr Clarke. He did not remember having any consent from Mr Clarke to sign for the whole amount. Mr Woosnam was proceeding to put a question to the witness, when The Chairman said it was a very awkward ques- tion ta put to his own witness. Mr Woosnam These interruptions, even from the Bench, are very unseemly. The Chairman Not more unseemly than your own conduct. Mr Woosnam I have been very mild with it all along. But it is very unseemly and most repre- hensible. I must be excused if I persist in having my own way of examining. I think it the elements of a magistrate to keep quiet. The Chairman: Go on; it won't make any difference. Mr Woosnam If it makes no difference I will now go on. (After a pause). Now, Mr Jones, will you Hsten to me, and when his Worship wants to put a question you will stop. Continuing, witness said he signed the agreement without reading it, being under the impression that they were to pay one-half the cost. Mr Woosnam Had you any conversation with the Town Clerk afterwards ? Yes, sir.—What was the conversation ? I was going down Severn street when I met the Town Clerk on the Canal Bridge, and he asked me what was my impression as to the cost of the Wellington Crescent improvement. Did I remember when the meeting took place what the decision was ? I replied that I was under the im- pression that the Council would defray one-half and the owners the other. He then said And so was I." The Town Clerk No, I did not. Mr Woosnam Pardon me; let the witness say what he recollects. (To witness). Did you under- stand that the Corporation was to pay half the expense and the owners the other half? Yes.— And upon that understanding you signed the docu- ment ?—Yes. The Chairman Without reading it ?—Without reading it. Mr. W oosnam Who presented that document to you to sign? Mr. Snook. What did Mr. Snook say to you when he presented it ? He told roe that the Council would pay half and the owners the other half of the expense. The Chairman again interrupted, and Mr. Woosnam objected to the way he had con- ducted the proceedings, which he said had not been done fairly. The Chairman I am glad to say 1 have. Mr. Woosnam said he was glad to say it was not the general feeding of the Bench, they had acted aS justices should act. The Chairman: And as I always do. Mr. Woosnam: I am glad to hear yon say so, but don't see it, I must confess. Continuing, witness said he signed the agreement upon his own responsibility. He did not do it by Mr. Clarke's directions. He never saw the plans neither did he receive any notice that these phr's had been deposited at the Town Clerk's office. Mr. Woosnam: Now you had instructions to make a tender ? Yes.—And yon attended at the Town Clerk's office for making the same ? Yes.— And to whom did you make the tender? To the Town Clerk in his office. — Where was the tender made ? I don't know the date. [believe on the 19th June. The way I am so positive is that I met Air. BromesoII, and I told him what I was goiug to do.—Mrs. Lewis's property has been excused by the Corporation, has it not ? Yes. The Chairman Now, it was not excused by the Corporation. There has been no claim made at all? and that you know perfectly well. Mr Woosnam I don't think the Chairman should use his private knowledge for tho business of thO Corporation. The Chairman There is no private knowle tge about it. Mr Woosnam said he should like to whether he had to fight his friend or the Chairma.C- The Chairman as a magistrate had no right to inter' fere whatever. The Chairman I have. Mr Woosnam I am sorry your experience not taught you better manners; lam glad to Jee some of their worships observing decorum iu1 a court of justice. Notwithstanding experience, ho^ ever, some men continue to blunder. The Chairman It makes no difference to TuB. Taking exceptions to some of Mr Woosnam9 remarks, Mr Woosnam You have your opinion, have mine. Contijuing, witness said when he said Mrs had been excused from contributing towards thIS e V pense he meant that she had not been called npo to pay, but the others had. Mr Bott: Is it a habit of yours to sign a doC-O ment without reading it ? I don't generally, did this, because of the representation of Snook.—You tell us you made a tender at j Town Clerk's office; are you sure about the date. de believe it was on June 19th, but I swear that I j. the tender to the Town Clerk. --Do you know th • the Town Clerk was away on the 19th ? He have been away, but he was in the office wheD i called, and I swear upon my oath that I tendere., the money to the Town Clerk, and he cannot dellú it, if he speaks the truth.—You were on the Coo0 p when this matter was first under considerat10 ^es- Did you take part in the discussion. ^i.0ir Mr. Woosnam I object to that question. T worships can rule if they like. I advise the witne not to answer it. Mr. Bott: You supported the carrying out of t improvements ? Mr. Woosuam Don't answer the question Pryce Jones. If you take my advice. -(fer Mr. Bott: Very well; if you decline to aDS my question, all right. g3r Elizabeth Jones said she was thirty years of and she lived at Wellington Crescent.

She not first read the paper, but trusted to his han tbe He told her the Corporation were going to do el1 street, and he wanted her to sign the agree expressing her willingness to pay her share oJ^P* expense, whiohHe said would amount to about at outside—and she repTietr ttraf she th s te could manage it.

He dl ate! know that they had deposited any plans, estIte ilJ or sections at the proper office. He was the dark. He received an application for d tb0 Id. in June as his share of the work. He calle whole thing a bungled-up affair. This closed the case for the defence. suJ11 The Chairman: We make an order for the claimed. at)ecG Mr. Bott applied for costs, but no order in re P to this or the interest was made. d d to Mr. Woosnam intimated that he intende appeal on the point of law.
