LATE on Saturday night or early on Sunday mornin a thief or thieves broke through the basement win- dow into the buildings of the University College, Aberystwyth, and stole upwards of one hundred valuable English and other coins from the glass case in the quadrangle. The collection included a complete set of Jubilee coins, coins covering the period from King John to William IV., United States silver coins, Continental coins, a silver medal commemorative of the battle of Waterloo, and speomens of Maundy money. A full description of the coins will be circulated by the College authorities. The local police are making inquiries, but up to the present there is no clue. •
Welsh Cattle Dealer Charged with Forgery. Committed for Trial. GREAT interest was taken in a case heard at Llan- gollen Petty Sessions on Tuesday, in which David Parry, one of the best-known sheep-dealers in North Wales, was charbed with having, on or about June 13, feloniously forged an acceptance, for pay- ment of a bill of Cig with intent to defraud Thomas Jones, landlord of the Hand Hotel, Llan- armon. Mr Kendrick, who prosecuted, said that in December, 1902, the defendant delivered a number of sheep at the farm of the plaintiff at Llanarmon, for which he asked £ 1 each. When they were delivered defendant said they were a very poor lot, not worth £1, and that he would only give 15s. each. He paid him a sum which amounted to £ ig less than he would have had to pay if the price had been £ 1 each. On that date,the defendant andhis son met together, and had a conversation as to an amount which de- fendant owed his son. The defendant had had dealings with his own son, and prepared a paper purporting to be a bill of exchange for pavment of money. It was to this effect Three months after date, pay to order Lig for value received." He wrote on the front of the bill the name Thomas Jones, the prosecutor, indicating that the plaintiff was willing at the time to pay £ 19,whereas Thomas Jones had never been consulted, and refused to pay the money. This document the defendant handed to his son, Mr J. E Parry, who made certain additions, and paid it to a man called Hughes in payment of a sum due from defendant's son to Hughes, who endorsed it and paid it into the bank. When it matured the bank called upon Thomas Jones to pay the money, and they then found that there had been a deliberate attempt to defraud him. The defendant had done all that he could to pre- vent the charges coming forward, but in this he was unsuccessful, the parties declining to assist in compounding a felony Mr Thomas Jones, the plaintiff, corroborated. He said the signature across the document was not his. It was a very good imitation The case proceeded all the afternoon, having a somewhat sensational denouement. When Mr R. S. Richards gave evidence he said that -Parry came to him at his office and made a statement inculpating his son, but afterwards signed a confession admitting the forgery. The bench thereupon decided that there was a prima facie case to go for trial, despite the conten- tion of Mr Wynne Evans on behalf of the defend- ant that no case of fr.udllçl)lintnt ha^^Betv raade out.
Lord Stanley and His Anglesey Tenants. Will Preside at the Liberation Meeting. A CORRESPONDENT writes :-Much satisfaction pre- vails in Anglesey in consequence of the fact that the new Lord Stanley of Alderley, who has come into the Penrhos Estaie, with an annual rental of about _4-12.000, is so much politically in touch with his tenants. He is in favour of Disestablishment, is an ardent Liberal, and is opposed to the Educa- tion Act. This is in accord with the views of the vast majority of his tenants and the people of Anglesey. He will become at once immensely popular with the community, and Anglesey will materially benefit by the connection Lord Stanley intends to spend a large portion of next month at his Welsh seat. His Lordship has consented to preside at a public gathering of the Liberation Society at Holyhead. The meeting promises to be the largest ever held in the locality, and will be looked forward to with great interest.
A Judge and His Critics. Mr. Justice Grantham's Report to His Former Ffiends. THE Croydon Licensed Victuallers' Protection Society has been much perturbed by the recent re- marks of Mr Justice Grantham on the subject of the wickedness of publicans, and accordingly the members met and passed a resolution, which they forwarded to his lordship, regretting that he should have again cast vile aspersions upon persons en- gaged in a lawful and respectable trade," and pointing out that this was in bad taste on the part of his lordship, who was returned to Parliament for Croydon in 1885 through the action of the licensed victuallers, thus paving the way to his election to the Bench. Mr Justice Grantham has replied that he is ex- tremely sorry to receive such an insulting resolu- tion from a body of men, most of whom, at any rate at one time, were carrying on their business in a respectable manner, many of whom I was glad to know as fri&ncts, and many of whom assisted, with the aid of numerous orher bodies and inclividuals, in returning me to Parliament. Now, apparently all this is changed." His lordship then goes on to repeat his charges against pulihcans to the effect that an enormous percentage of crimes of violence are due to the serving of men with drink while already in liquor. His lordship concludes I ought probably to have treated this resolution with silent contempt, but the respect I once had for so many of the licensed victuallers of Croydon for the way they then conducted their business makes it incumbent on me now to express my great regret at their apparently altered character.—Your obedient ser- vant (signed), WILLIAM GRANTHAM."
Mr Justice Graham has written a .severe kiter in reply to a resolution. from Croydon licensed victuallers protesting against his strictures on members of the trade .in his comments on the connection between drink and crime. The .rector of Eastington, near Stroud, in re- signing his living, made a vigorous protest 1 against the administr,at.-ion, af Queen Anne's Bounty Fund. Some years ago the rectory was sold, and the proce'eds handed to the fund, on an understanding which, the vicar says, has not been carried out.
A Rh) I Poetess. WE have pleasure in reproducing the following lines, which appeared in the British Temperance Advocate recently, from the pen of Mrs Mary E. Johnson, of Whitchurch, daughter of Mr Edward Jones, estate agent, Wellington-road, Rhyl. Mis Johnson has, on many occasions, published her poems, and the one to which special reference is made at present has attractt-d no little attention in Temperance circles throughout the country, for the pathetic touch of the theme. The title of the poem is Drunk, Like Daddy," and has emanated from a true incident 'Twas a group of ragged children, I watched at their play one night. They were dirty and wretched-lookiug, A sad and pitiful sight For one who thinks that, aU children Should be happy a.ud free from care But their troubles seom all forgotten As they played so noisily there. I paused a moment to watch them And wonder what they were after, As one by one they staggered along, Gre(, ,I?ed by ridg-itig li,.ughter; And when I questioned one youngster, He answered I Well, we're try iug To walk like daddy when he get.b drunk, And mother starts a-eryirig." A sudden lurch and a sideways fall, All in a helpless heap "Hurrah!" cried the children, that's the way, And then daddy goes to sleep." Ah pitiful tale of experience hat wives and children know And ttigic too, was the mimicry Of so much sorrow and woe. I thought of that wretched mother Who bore the brunt of it all Of the empty hearth, the cheerless home, If home it were fit to call; Then I thought of the wealthy brewers, f the publicans well to do. Who waxed rich on the ruin of others, For thous ands keep the lew Oh fathers, whose little children May be drunk like daddy some day, In sad and sober earnest Instead of in mimic p ay, Give up drink's iatai habit, It is your curse and bane. And all your earnings are needed A pleasant home to gain. Now you live in dire discomfort Who might in comlort dwell; Now the children are thin and ragged, Who should be plump and well; Now you stagger home at evening To a poor, heartbroken wife Come, start on a different pathway, Make a better thing ot life. MAliY E. JoliNsoN.
suicide at Llandoulas. Sad Case. ON the 23rd inst., a single woman, aged 58, named Jane Anderton, was found to be missing from her lodging's, Ty Gwyn, Llanddulas. She disappeared oetween 9.30 p.m. on Tuesday and! 6 a..m. Wednesday, leaving! no trace of hex whereabouts. A search was made for her in the immediate1 neighbourhood, and her dead body was found upon the shore near Llanddulas. The body was at once removed ko Ty Gwyn, Llanddulas, to await the inquest. The coroner was informed the same, evening, and on Thurs- day an inquest was heu" by th*e -Deputy-Coronet for West Denbighshire, at Bulah Chapel. The first wiiness called1, Mrs Jones, Ty Gwyn, skated that the deceased: stayed at her house for the last two years. She l'ast saw her alive at 9 p.m. on the 23rd. She was then in bed, and in her usual state of health. She had stayed in bed during the day, but that was a common thing for her to do. She had taken her meals regu- larly during the day. She afe times appeared very depressed and worried, and acted rather strangely. About twelve months ago she was seen by Drs. Elliott and! Hughes, of Llan- ddulas and Albergele, who expressed an opinion that she was not mentally wrong, but appeared to be depressed aifdi worried. Some time back Mrs Jones had asked her relatives to take cnarge of her, as she could- not manage to give her sufficient attention lately. Her brother-in-law and- her sister had made arrangements to get her removedl to St. Asaph Union Infirfhary, and.a few days ago she. was informed Of the fact by her sister in a letter. At- tirSlL she appeared to be dreading the idea of going to the Union, but the last day or two she appeared to be sektled down to go, and talked of having things sent to ,her during her jintended ,qtay at the place. She had, never heard her mention a wordi about doing away with herself, and1 would never Uunk of her doing' such an act, as she was always so cool in her manner. Albert White, living at Moranedd Hall, Llan- ddu.as, coachman, stated that on the morning of the 23rd inst., he was at the railway station when he heard that' there was a woman in the water. He ran there, and found her in a few inches of water. She was then quite dead, and apparently had been dadfor hours. He I as- sisted ano'ther gentleman in getting the, foody out of reach of the s'ea, and sent information of her being found. P.C. Rowlands stated that at 7.30 on the date named, he received information of Jane Ander- ton being missing. 'He proceeded to make in- quiries, and was in-formed that s'he had1 gone out partly d.ressed. He caused a search party to act in. the, immediate district, and whilst in search of her he receivied) information of her body Ibeing found on Llanddulas shore. He proceeded ^'here, and found her being removed out of the water's reach, and removed the body to Ty Gwyru Farm. The body was examined, and no marks of violence were found. A black bodice, was tied around her head, andi might have got to that position through being in the water and washed iby the waves. Witness found that one of her pockets was filled stones, andi twisted 'round and pinned to pre- vent the stones coming out. There was nothing else found upon her besides, a letter from her sister, which was a long sympathetic one. The only thing of importance in it was that she (deceased) was :informed of her sister's intention to s'end her to the Union Infirmary. Dr. Hughes stated that he examined die- ceaJsed in the early months of the summer, and found that she was in good health, but suffering from melancholia. He oould not have pUlt nothing on the certificate to indicate insanity, and he felt certain that if she was sent to an asylum she would have been ordered back by the Government inspector. After a brief summing, up by the Coroner, the jury, of whom Mr Mark Cro'ss, "The Mills," was foreman, returned a verdict of "Suicide whilst temporary insane."
