Miers presiding), Ivor Davies, Cwmgorse, was charged with feloniously stealing timber from the New Cwmgorsc Colliery on various dates. He pleaded guilty. P.S. Shillum said that on Feb. 12 he visited the home of defendant at Cwmgorse, and saw a new shed in course of erection, and some other wood and a wicket gate in an out- house. Defendant, when cautioned, said he had the timber from his mother- in-law at Clydaeh, but admitted later that he had t ken it from the New Cwmgorse Cx ilierv yard on various dates.
