MR. WHITELEY S ASSAILANT. REPORTED VISIT TO COWBRIDGE THREE YEARS AGO. STORY OF THE LANDLADY OF THE PELICAN INN. The reports of the death of Mr. Whiteley have aroused a reminiscence of a significant incident which occurred at the Pelican Inn. Cowbridge, three years ago. The landlady (Mrs. David Jenkins) stJtes that in the month of June, 19U3, a };¡"g man who came from Swansea called at the Pelican, and had refreshment, after which he entered into conversation -it. three young men. colliers, who came ironi the Rhondda district. One of the colliers appeared to know London well, and the stranger engaged him in talk on the subject, and asked if he knew Whiteley s there. The collier replied that he had been in the shop many times, and added that he had served as a butler in London. The stranger then made the statement, William Whiteley is my father, and I am going to London to make him own me, or give me some money. Next day the stranger and the collier who knew London left Cowbridge, and walked to Cardiff, where they had determined to take train for Lon- don. The collier was going to pay expenses, and the claimant to kinship with Mr. White- c ley would re-pay him after reaching Lon- don. The landlady adds that the stranger appeared quite a gentleman, but was down on his luck. He gave the name of Ray Whiteley. Mrs. Jenkins has seen in the papers the portrait of the man who is charged with shooting Mr. Whiteley, and she is sure that he is the man who visited the Pelican three years ago last summer.
