Serious allegations were made at Swan- sea Police .Court on Wednesday against Charles Ellis, storekeeper, who as faid to have offered drink to sentries on duty.

Witness called out the guard to take Ellis into custody, whereupon the latter struck him a violent blow in the chest. Defendant was arrested by the guard and locked np. Ellis expressed great regret, and said he had had too much drink. He had been to sea all his life, and this was the first occasion for him to get into trouble. Sentries' Difficulties. Lieutenant Mullines explained to the Bench that the reason that the military authorities had decided to bring the case to that court was a very sufficient one. The military had had considerable trouble, and it had been very hard for the non-commissioned ofSccrs to stand the treatment meted out to them. The soldiers had frequently been struck, and the Commanding Officer had decided to bring this case forward more as a warn- ing to others. The Chairman (Mr. A. H. Thomas) after impressing upon defendant the serious nature of the charges against him, said that the Bench in their judicial capacity and as loyal citizens of this great Empire, were bound to see that the law was carried out. As citizens, they ought to assist the military in every way pos- sible. Prisoner was liable to go to prison for each of the offences, but the Bench had decided to be lenient. For having been drunk and disorderly a fine of 20s. wa6 imposed, and on each of the other charges a fine of 40s. was inflicted, mak- ing a total of £ 5.
