Williams, The Chairman, in cuarging the grand jury, said they aad rather more to to than they had been accustomed to of late. He believed that there were 56 or 57 prisoners, but as several of them were in the same mdictment, there would be about 45 cases to oe presented to the grand jury.

There were, he thought, 15 cases in which persons were charged with un- lawfully wounding other persons. A great many of these cases had arisen from quarrels some of them had arisen without any quarrel, and in all the cases various weapons had been used—shovels, bars, knives, and bricks—and anything that carne to hand.

Subsequently the girl took a situation as a domestic servant at Quaker's Yard, and while there instituted affiliation proceedings against Davies before the Caerphilly magistrates, she then having some additional evi- dence.
