Ivor Evans, 45, Trafalgar Terrace, Swansea, was charged by Inspector I Ridge, of the Cambrian Railways Com- pany, with having, on August 28th last, at the Dyffryn Railway Station, entered the guard's van contary to the byelaws of the Company. Mr Kenrick Minshall, prosecuted on behalf of the Railway Company, whilst Mr J. Jones-Willfams, Dolgalley, ap- peared on behalf of the defendant, who did not appear. MrKenrick Minshall, in the course of his opening statement, stated that the defendant was charged with a rather unusual offence one which bad never happened before. On Apgust 28bh last the 9.30 a.m. train from Pwllheli ar- rived at Dyffryn Railway Station. On that day there was an exceptional large number of passengers on the station and also large number .of luggage, etc., to be carted to the train. The person responsible for giving a signal to the train to proceed was the guard, who bad to use the green flag. The driver takes the signal from the guard. The guard of the train and carting porter were on the day in question in the guard's van loading the luggage, and they bad a lorry full along side of the van, whilst the other officials were collecting the tickets. The guard left his green flag on a seat in the van, whilst he was engaged loading luggage in another part of the van. Whilst at this work, all of a sudden, the train started to go out of the Station, and the guard saw a tall man waving the green flag. The guard at once stopped the train before it bad gone very far, and saw the defendant on the platform. The defendant had gone into the guard's van and had waved the green flag for the train to proceed. The driver naturally when he saw the green flag waving steamed out of the Station, and in the ordinary way the train would have proceeded to Bar. mouth. If it had not happened that the guard was in the van at the time, most serious consequences might have happened, and he understood by now that the defendant did it as a joke. It was a very serious thing to do, and it was all nonsense for anyone to do such a thing as a mere joke. The Railway Company bad taken a serious view of the case. The Company had received a letter from the defendant's father who was the Vicar of Penybont, in Radnorshire, who apologised for tb.e action of his son, who at the time of the offence, was about to be ordained as a priest, and by now bad been appointed Curate at Swansea. The Company bad had great difficulty in serving 'the defendant with a summons, and had to send a special messenger to Penybont and Swansea before the summons could be served. The offence committed was most serious and might have ended in loss of lives. He appealed ■ to the Magistrates to impose a heavy penalty which would serve as a warning to others in future. He bad witnesses in in Court to give further evidence. Mr Jones-Williams said there was no need to call any more evidence as he accepted the statement made by the prosecution, and would plead guilty on behalf of the defendant. The Chairman—Do you admit the whole statement made by the Prosecut- ing Solicitor ? Mr Jones-Williams said he would accept the statement just made. The young man was exceedingly sorry for what he had done which was only a foolish prank. On the day in question defendant was sending away some friends from Dyffryn, and merely did it as a joke, which be (Mr Williams) ad- mitted might have bad serious con- sequences. The defendant bad already apologised to the Railway Company for what be bad done, at the time he was a student, but by now bad been ordained a priest. Defendant bad no bad inten- tion in the least in what he did, and the Railway Company would have bad sufficient publicity in the matter by bringing the case forward. He appealed to the Bench not to convict the defen- dant, but to dismiss the case on pay- ment of cost only. He admitted that it was a case the Railway Company bad to bring forward, but he hoped that the Bench would not convict the defen- dant. The Cferk (Mr J. Charles Hughes)- How old is the defendant ? Mr Jones.Williams-I could not say. The Clerk--He is not a boy or else be would not have been ordained. The Chairman said the Bench would like to know whether the prosecution pressed the charge or not. Mr Kenrick Minshall said that the Railway Company took a rather serious view of the offence, and the Company bad had some difficulty in serving the summons or else the case would have been dealt with before now. The offence had been committed six months ago. He believed that there ought to be a penalty. Mr Jones-Williams said he could assure the Bench that there was no intention of evading service of sum- mons, and if an application bad bepn made to the defendant's father for his address, that would have been given directly to the Railway Company. The Bench then retired, and on their return into Court, the Chairman said that the Bench bad given the case their most i3erious consideration, and they quite admitted in the first instance that the offence was committed as a joke, without realising that the danger was. so serious, but at the same time they could not overlook the fact that the general public must be safe guarded when travelling, and the defendant would be fined forty shillings. Mr Minshall applied for an advocate's fee., Mr Jones. WiIliams-I think you have done very well! Mr Minshall said that the Railway Company bad already gone to some expense ovet the case, but be would leave the matter in the hands of the Bench The Chairman said that the Bench would grant the usual advocate's fee. I SCHOOL CASES. SCHOOL CASES. The adjourned case against Evan Evans, Siloam Buildings, for not sending his child to scbopl regularly, was dis- missed, on payment of costs.—The School Attendance Officer (Mr John I Lewis) stated that there was a great improvement in the attendance of the child since the last Court. i The Chairman remarked that the Bench were glad that the child was ¡ being sent to school regularly, and I hoped that it would be continued. A similar case against Edward Price, Level Crossing, Dyffryn, was adjourned for another month. I PLANS. Plans were submitted to the Bench by Mr Peacock, Fairbourne, of additions to be carried out at the Talydon Hotel, Barmouth. Mr Peacock informed the Bench that the additions would not in the least interfere with the draining facilities. Police Inspector Ben Evans stated that the Police had no objections the Chief Constable had already approved of the plans. The Bench approved of the plans ? ?'

The Clerk presented a report of the Agriculture Committee who bad met to discuss the scheme for agriculture in County Schools.

I PRIZE DISTRIBUTION. I It was unanimously decided to bold the annual prize distribution daring j this term, and the usual arrangements } were left to the Headmaster. LEGACY FOR THE SCHOOL. I 1 The .Clerk read a letter from Mrs Morgan, Ballymacora, enclosing a i cheque for RIOO, being a legacy which bad been left to the Barmouth County School by the late Mr John Morgan, a former Governor of the County School. The amount was free of any legacy duty, and was to be invested with a view of giving a scholarship or scholar- ships to poor and deserving children in Barmouth. Mrs Morgan, in her letter, hoped that the legacy would be of some use to the Barmouth County School, which bad such a high moral influence in the town. The Chairman suggested that two or three members of the Governors should oall on Mrs Morgan personally to thank her for the legacy, as he believed that such a handsome gift should not be overlooked by sending a letter only. It waa unanimously decided that the Chairman (Rev. R. Lloyd Roberts, M.A.) the Vice-Chairman (Alderman T. Martin Williams), and the Headmaster (Mr E. D. Jones, M.A.) should be appointed to call upop Mrs Morgan. It was decided that the mode of investing the money thonld be referred to the Finanoe Committee. I SUCCESS. The Headmaster reported that an old pupil of the school, viz, Master John Roberts, Ripon House, had passed an examination of the London City and Midland Bank as a clerk.
