He also complimented the police on the efficiency with which they supervised the public-houses in the district. ALLEGED FURIOUS DRIVING. Henry Edwards, Marloes, was summoned for driving a horse and cart furiously to the danger of the public at St. Ishmael's on 24th August. He was also summoned for drunkenness in charge of the horse and cart. Mr NV. T. Jones, solicitor, defended. Frederick Rees, Bicton, swore that he was in the em- ployment of Miss Davis, Trewarren, and on Saturday last he and a man named Jenkins were in charge of a mowing machine near Mabe's Gate, going in the direc- tion of Trewarren. They had two horses. Miss Davis was there with her bicycle. They heard a horse galloping towards them. Miss Davis sung out to the parties coming on to stop, but they did not do so. He then saw the defendant coining along driving, and, leaving the machine in charge of the other man with him, he ran towards the defendant's horse. The defendant, however, stopped his horse within a few yards of him. He could not say whether the defendant was drunk or not, as he took no notice of him. Miss Davis and P.C. Lewis, who came oil the scene about the same time, had a conversation with the defendant, but lie did not hear it. There were two men in the trap with the defendant. Mr Jones cross-examined, and asked the witness amongst other questions whether he knew that the de- tenaant was driving a young colt and that it bolted.
