YSTRADGYNLAIS POLICE COURT. On Tuesday. Before Messrs. G. H. Strick, Howell Walters, M. W. Morgan and J. D. Morgan. "IN PURSUIT OF GAME." Morgan D. Williams, 29, St. Mary's- street, Seven Sisters, was summoned by W. Williams, gamekeeper to Baron Cederstrom for trespassing in pursuit of game on the land of Morgan Price, Glynllech, Abercrave, on 18th January. J. Hough, under-keeper, stated that he saw the defendant along with three other men, whom witness could not identify. Defendant had an Airedale terrier with him at the time.-Fined 10s. and costs. E. Bamford, Colbren, was snmmoned for a similar offonce on Hendreleisha Farm on land in the occupation of Morgan Jones on Jany 26. Wm. Williams stated that defendant had three setter dogs with him. One of the dogs jumped up and tried to get a pheasant down. Witness asked de- fendant what business he had to allow the dogs to drive the pheasants, to which he replied, "Don't be nasty. I won't bring the dogs with me again." Cross-examined by Mr. W. Jones- Williams witness admitted the de- fendant had no gun, net or other poaching appliance with him. Mr. Jones-Williams in addressing the Bench said that the evidence given by Williams appeared to be vindictive. It lay with the prosecution to prove that the defendant was in pursuit of game. It was hardly likely that a man would go to a place where Williams was feed- ing pheasants. Defendant in giving evidence, gave a complete denial to the charge. The dogs did not belong to him and he could not control them. By the Clerk: The dogs had followed him 200 or 300 yards. He had tried to send the dogs back but it would be necessary to beat them before they would go back. Defendant, was fined 10s. and costs. Samuel Smith, labourer, no fixed abode, was fined 5s. and costs for being drunk and disorderly in Brecon-road on Sunday night, Feb. 15. P.C. W. Williams proved the case. .50. 0
