PARISH CONSTABLE. I Henry Holbrook was appointed parish I oonstnble for Woolhope district. EXTENSIONS. I An occasional license to sell from 9 p.m. till 4 a.m. was granted to Messrs Gabb Bros., "No. 7," Ledbury, for a Territorial Ball at the new Drill Hall on Easter Monday. George Wadley, The Wellington Inn, Ledbury, was granted an extension till 12 mid- night on April 16th, the occasion of a supper and dance in connection with the aii-rifle club. Mr Hopkins did not adjudicate during the hearing of these applications. NO COLLAR. I Walter Pitt, of Canon Froome, was summoned for allowing a dog to be on the highway without a collar bearing the name and address of the owner, at Ashpcrton on March 12th. The case was proved by P.C. Griffin. Defendant pleaded guilty, but said that he had no wish to evade the law. As a matter of fact he considered the Act was a very good one. The collar was taken off the dog and put on another, which was sent to a man who did not return it. Then it was forgotten. The Bench imposed a fine of 2s 6d. Defendant: Thank you. HIGHWAY OFFENCE. I Herbert R E Shambrook, of Woolhope, was charged with having a waggon wheel tied with- out a skid pan at the Cockshoot, Woolhope, on March 26th. P.C. Matthews stated that he saw defendant with a light cart heavily laden with clover and drawn by one horse. Both wheels of the cart were locked but there was only one skidpan. Witnesa drew defendant's attention to the fact that a notice was displayed at the top of the hill cautioning the public against tying wheels without skidpans, and defendant said he knew all about it. In that neighbourhood it was usual to have two skidpans. Defendant said he had a skidpan on one wheel, and he found that the load was over- taking the horse and to avoid anything more serious happening he tied the other wheel. Supt. Williams said ho did not wish to press this charge on account of defendant's family, but it should be made known that it was as bad to have one skidpan and one tied wheel as it was to have one wheel tied with no skidpan. A fine of 103 inclusive was imposed, defendant being warned not to let such a thing occur again. The Chairman and Mr Hopkins, being members of the County Council, did not adjudicate in this case.
