Pontsticill Stationmaster. ASSAULTED BY DISCHARGED SOLDIER. CEFN-COED MAN CHARGED. The remarkable escapade of a discharged Cefn-coed soldier had a sequel at the Penderyn Petty Sessions on Thursday, when Wm. Evans (23), of Well Street, was summoned for assaulting George Williams, stationmas- ter, Pontsticill. Mr F. S. Simons, who prosecuted, stat.ed that the de- fendant struck Williams a violent blow on the. nose without provocation. Mr Washington Bowen, who defended, pleaded guilty to the assault, and stated that the defendant was not answerable for his actions. He was discharged from the Army, medically unfit, 12 months ago, and had since been in the Infirmary with a view to his rren- tually being put under restraint. "I am here," added Mr Bowen, "on behalf of the family, to ask the as- sistance o< the magistrates, as the family are in a state of peril." Defendant remarked that prosecutor became a bit cheeky, and he gave him what he wanted. John Evans, father of the defendant, spoke to the violent nature of his son, and said he had twice escaped from the Infirmary. He often got up in the middle of the night to take food, and once left a lighted candle on the table when he went to sleep, with the result that the table-cloth was burnt. The chairman (Col. J. Jones) said it was an unpro- voked assault, and defendant would be fined E2 (or one month). He would not allow time to pay. "I will have the month, if you don't mind," defend- ant replied.
