Sipldo Acquitted. I Brussels, Thursday.-The trial of Sipido and his alleged three accomplices in the attempt to shoot the Prince of Wales cam? to a sensatlOnli I I conclusion this evening. Counsel for the defence again eloquently pleaded for the youths, urging that they were the bre id-winners of their respective families despito their tender ye-irs. The Advocate- General having replied fur the prosecution, the jury found that Sipido and his fellow prisoners had com- mitted the act alleged, but thut they were too young to understand properly the gravity of their action. This WIlS, of course, tantamount to their acquittal, and the prisoners were thereupon ordered to be dis- charged from custody. The Public Prosecutor asked ii Sipido might be placed at the dispoial of the Government with a view of his being placed in a reformatory and kept there until he shall have attained the age of 21 years. The Court refused the application, and the prisoners then left the Court. Central News. FOOD AND DRUGS ACT.-At Tredegar Police- Court on Tuesday a number of prosecutions, at the instance of the Monmouthshire County Council, were conducted by Mr. Lyndon Moore, Newport. The first case was against John Davies, collier, Beaufort, who was charged with selling milk from which* 30 per cent. of fat had been abstracted. Mr. Thompson, county analyst, proved his certificate and said the lack of quality in the milk must have been due to abstrac. ion, as there were no indica- tions of water having been added.—The wife of the defendant swore that she had not tampered with the milk in any way. The Bench imposed a tine of 15, including costs. William Davies, land- lord of the Tredegar Anns Hotel, Rhymney, was fined £ i, including costs, for selling whiskey which was 35.GD degrees below proof. Joseph Price, grocer, Beaufort, was fiued £ 2, and £ 3 2s. costs, for selling a mixture purporting to be camphorated oil, but which was devoid of the necessary ingredients to make it comply with the provisions of the statute.—Mr. T. G. Po well appeared for the defendant.
