A MUMBLES TRAGEDY GIRLS STATEMENT TO HOTEL MANAGER Light was thrown upon the tragic occurrence at Langland Hay in the early hours of last Saturday at the inquest which opened at Mumbles Police Station, on Monday morning. The coroner was Mr. R. W. Beor and Coun- cillor H. Davies foreman of the jury. The Coroner said he would have iitfrie evidence to put before the jury, as the companion of the deceased, Miss Elsie. Smith, was not well enough to be there that day. There is a certain letter from her bearing on the case," added the Coroner, which I do not think it wouid be better to lay before you until she is here. She has made two different statements as to how deceased got into the water, and we shall have\ to go into that at the next sitting.' Miss Kate Bartlett, 144, Rhyddin<je- terrace domestic servant, stated that the body was that of her brother, Ernest Bartlett, signalman, of the R.F.A. He had been stationed in England; and came home on leave on Thursday evening. He was to have returned in the ordinary way on Tuesday evening, but soon after he reached home on Thursday evening, he received a telegram which ordered him to re In ordered him to refurn on Monday. Wit- ness saw him on, Friday evening about saven o'clock at Rhyddings-terrace. He was then qu-ite cheerful, and went out about 8 p.m., and they understood that he was going to see Miss Ek-de Smith his sweetheart, at her lodgings in Port Ten- j There had been no quarrel be- d-ece-ased and his sweetheart so far as a „•& knew. Deceased was engaged to b, married to Miss Elsie Smith, but no definite date had been fixed. Witness's mother was quite willing for the marriage, but desired them to leave it until after the war. Early on Satur- day morning, a message was received by her mother from the police that Ernest had been drowned at Mumbles. When he left home on Friday night they under- stood that Elsie had promised her land- lady to be in by 9 o'clock. Neither Wit- ness nor her mother knew of any inten- tion to go to the Mumbles. By the Foreman: Deceased joined the army in 1914. He had served in France and Salonika. In reply to Mr. W. Arthur Davies, who represented the relatives of deceased witness said her brother had been in. valided home last year. He had spen< sixteen months in hospital at Salonika. Malta and England. John Henry May, manager of the Os- borne Hotel, Langland, told the jury that at 12.50 a.m. on Saturday he was aroused by a knock at the door. He opened the window and asked who was there. A female voice answered, I fell over the oliff; I'm wet." Witness then went down- stairs, opened the door. and found Elsie Bmith standing by the wall. He took her in, and shortly after she collapsed. She made no further statement to him. With the assistance of two of his staff wit- ness got her upstairs, where she undressed. He telephoned to the police and to Dr. Marks. On Saturday after- noon the girl was taken to the Swansea Hospital. He did not see her again, but did not think she was really sensible up to the time she was removed by the police. Bv the foreman: Her clothing was soaking wet, and rfhe had been in the water. There were no bruises on the face so far as he could see. He did not ex- amine her. A juryman said it would have been about hiirh tide at the time the girl reached the hotel The coroner said he had not called the doctor because he felt it would be un- necessnrv until the girl had been called to ifivc her evidence. If the jury desired that a post mortem examination should bi-O made. they could ask for one. A juryman said he thought they would have had the doctor there to have told them what the cause of death was. tf they knew that the deceased had died from drowning they would have been satisfied. As it was, they were in a doubt as tD what the actual cause of death was. The Coroner adjourned the inquest for a fortnight, and later decided that a post- mortem examination should be made. Miss Smith was still suffering some- what from shock on Monday morning, but was sufficiently recovered to permit of her removal to another institution later in the day.
IF HE HAD KNOWN. I Messrs. Cresci and Impannio. Clydach, were summoned, together with their manager (Moy Desidario), at Pontardawe on Friday, for selling chocolates at 3kl. per oz. instead of 3d. The former were ordered to pay costs, whilst Desiderio wes lined 40s. Mr. J. H. P. Lloyd: Now don't let us see you here again. Desiderio: If I knew the rules I would I not have been here to-day. (Laughter.)
HUSBAND AND WIFE. I At Pontardawe on Friday Moses James, collier, Ynismeudw, was summoned by his wife Ceinwen for desertion. Mr. Edward Harris, who prosecuted, said the parties were married in 1917. One night, when the baby was restless, defendant tried to beat it, but he beat his wife in- stead, as she was trying to defend the hahy. Defendant earned £ 3 10s. tid. per week. Defendant said his wife was spending too much time with her mother, instead of preparing things for him by the time ho returned from work. The case was adjourned for a month in order to try and get the parties together, I
BOGUS HERO. At Glamorgan Sessions at Swa on Tuesday-before Col. Rhys Williams, D.S.O.—Wm. Jones (i43), described ats a miner, plsaded guilty to obtaining food and lodgings by fal-se pretences at Porfch. i Mr. Hugh Jones appeared for the prose- cution, It was stated that the prisoner i had posed as an officer of the 17th Lancers, and said lie had been throughi the battle of MODS. He wore a medal, and was in uniform. In parsing sentence of 18 months' im- prisonment" with hard labour, to run con- currently with sentences he was now serv- ing, Col. Williams pointed out that it, was of no use dealing leniently with men of that type.
I WAR WORKERS' BEER. Absnivon. Pert Talbot and District Licensed Victuallers' Association for- warded to the Food Controller a resolu- tion pointing out the fact that a very large number of men had been brought to the district on war work, and that the restriction of the output of beer therefore caused greater hardship on the locality than was the case in districts where Op adult male population had been greatly reduced by recruiting, and by migration to munition areas. The Ministry of Food have replied in a lengthy commxinioation, stating that numerous suggestions and representations have been made to the Ministry on the subject, and that various questions re- lating to the consumption of a lcoholic Heverageo, etc., were constantly receiving the attention of the department. Amongst other things the letter states that the pre- sent consumption of food stuffs in the manufacturing of alcoholic beverages is leas than one-third of the consumption in the pre-war period; due to the limita- tion of brewing, and the prohibition of distillation of potable spirit. :1"L.,t.
