TREDEGAR. PROTECTING THE RATEPAYERS.—At the local Court on Monday, John Ernest Wil- liams, who at present resides at Cannock, Staffordshire, was summoned at the in- stance of the Bedwellty Guardians for k45, arrears under a maintenance order for the support of his wife and children. Warrant Offieer Evans stated that the defendant was brought before the court in March, 1913, when he owed £56. He had since reduced the debt to 945. He was com- mitted for a month, suspended while he paid 5s. a week. A RUFFIAN SENTENCED.—At the local Police Court on Monday, Daniel Haggerty, a tramping labourer, was charged with smashing the windows of the Black Prince Hotel, Tredegar, on Saturday night. Ben- jamin Jones, the landlord, said that the accused came to the house and began pushing the customers about in the bar. He declined to leave when requested and said that all the police force in the town could not put him out. The accused then smashed the windows with the buckle of his belt. Damage was done to the amount of 25. Haggerty was committed to two months with hard labour, without the option of a fine. HAULIER'S CRUELTY.—At a special police court on Saturday, Thomas Eyles (54), haulier, Tredegar, was summoned for cruelty to a horse on the 16th inst. Sidney Allen, the driver of a steae brewery lorry said that he saw the defen- dar t trying to get the horse which was attached to a load of coal, up the hill. The horse failed to take the load up, and defendant beat it in the ribs with a part of a walking stick and then jabbed in it the mouth with the stick. The animal's mouth bled, and there were pools of blood or the roadway. Defendant said that by trying to prevent the horse from backing into shop windows he might have struck it in the mouth accidentally. The Bench imposed a fine of 40s., or one month's imprisonment. DEATH OF REV. B. LEWIS.—General regret was felt in the district on Saturday last at the announcement of the death, at Tenby, of the Rev. Benjamin Lewis, who was for the long period of 30 years the pastor of the Presbyterian Church in that town. Mr Lewis was a native of Tredegar, and went to Tenby from Ebbw Vale. His ministry at Tenby was very successful, and the year before last he was elected to the important office of Moderator of the South Wales Calvinistic Methodist Associ- ation. On the 28th year of his pastorate Mr Lewis received a valuable presentation from the members of his church. He had been in poor health for a long period, and last year, to the great regret of the congre- i gation, he decided to retire from the posi- tion he had held so long. The Rev. W. F. j Phillips was appointed his successor, and took up his duties at the beginning of the year. Of a quiet disposition, the deceased gentleman enjoyed the respect and esteem of all classes of townspeople. He was in his 68th year. Mrs Lewis survives him.
