Fatality at ttrytuitawr. SEQUEL IN THE POLICE COURT. William Evans, contractor, Ebbw Yale, was charged at Brynmawr Police Court on Monday with furious riding at Brynmawr on June 9th, when Benjamin James, Nantyglo, t»9 years of age, was knocked down, and died from concussion of the brain and shock on June 25th. The verdict at the coroner's inquiry was that deceased met his death by misadventure whilst watching a trotting display, and, whilst not imputing blame for the death of deceased to Evans, the jury severely condemned the practice of displaying trotting horses in a public thoroughfare. The evidence of three witnesses went to prove that defendant was riding at from 9 to 13 miles an hour. Mr. Daniel Evans. Brecon, who appeared for defendant, pointed out that if the Bench found his client guilty of furious riding on the occasion then, notwithstanding the verdict- of the Coroner's I' Court, he would have to be commuted for man- slaughter. On behalf of defendant he put in a large number of testimonials, said the charge was dismissed.
