Carmarthen Assizes. -0- ¡ WHITE GLOVES PRESENTED FROM THE | BOROUGH. LLANELLY ELOPEMENT SEQUEL: A FORGIVING HUSBAND. At the Carmarthenshire Assizes on Saturday Mr. Justice Walton, in his charge to the. grand jury, said he was extremely gratified to find so little crime in the counties of Car- marthen, Cardigan, and Pembroke. From Carmarthenshire there were only seven prisoners, and the cases were not, compara- tively, very serious, 'whilst there were no cases from the county of the borough of Car- marthen, and the same remarks applied to the town and county of Haverfordwest. It was most gratifying to find during his visit to that part of South Wales the small number of cases of violence or offences against women. His lordship had left Pembrokeshire for Lon- don, where there was a pressure of work, and OR meeting Mr Justice Bucknell there he learned that no work had to be done at Car- narvonshire Assizes. Mr. W. Isaac (sheriff for the borough of Carmarthen) presented the judge with a pair of white gloves. ONE DAY'S IMPRISONMENT. William Hugh Egerton Roberts (37), com- mission agent, pleaded not guilty to a charge of forging an endorsement on a banker's cheque value £ 1. Mr. Ivor Bowen (instructed by Mr. T. H. Powell, Llandilo) appeared to prosecute. Prisoner was undergoing a sentence of 12 months' hard labour for obtaining this and /rfiifl,poney by false pretences, and he was imprisoned £ r one day only. PEN At. SERVITUDE PROMISED. was charged with breaking into C'arregoegyu Farm, Llandilo, on August 24 last, and steal- ing a silver watch, a gold chain, a locket, and other articles, of the value of £ 16, belonging to the occupier, William Thomas, and further with damaging an iron safe. Mr. W Llewelyn Williams, M.P., appeared for the crown. Prisoner, il-i 3, written statement, said he heard a noise upstairs, where he saw two men breaking open the safe. He was about going for assistance, when they swore that they would kill him. One of the men gave him the watch. The Judge remarked that the prisoner, who I had been at an industrial school, had a very bad record. If he came before the court again he would be sent to penal servitude. In order to give him a chance to reform he would only be sentenced to ten calendar months' imprisonment with hard labour. LLAXELLY ELOPEMENT SEQUEL. I HUSBAND'S APPEAL FOR WIFE. I Jane Louisa Morgan and George Roberts, of I Llanelly, were charged with stealing R27 7<s. 4(1. in money, a sewing machine, and a case of silver spoons, the property of Collwyn Mor- gan, husband of the female prisoner. George Roberts was also charged with receiving the money and goods. Mr. D Lleufer Thomas (instructed by Mr. T. It. Ludford, Llanelly) appeared to prose- cute, whilst Mr. Dayin. Rhys (instructed by Mr. H. Hayton Williams) defended. The female prisoner pleaded guilty. Collwyn Morgan, surveyor, of Astoria, Llan- elly, said that early in April he went to Lon- don to give evidence in favour of the Llanellv Water Bill. Before leaving he handed to his 1 %? il?e a blank cheque,' so that ahe could fill it !up to pay the butcher's bill. When he re- turned he found that his wife had cashed a cheque for ?30, and had eloped to London I with the prisoner Roberts, taking with them ( I the machine and silver spoons. I Wife's £ 3000 Dowry. ( Cross-examined by Mr. Rhys, witness said That he had been married to his wife, who was the daughter of a doctor, for 15 years, and there were seven children. He was not a poor man when he married—in fact, he had never been poor in his lifew I Mr Rhys: Am I right in saying that your wife's dowry was £ 6000?—No; it was £ 3000. What has happened with the money?—It has been spent by my wife. Is this cheque for iP,30 in your writing?—I cannot say. The signature is mine. The Judge: Is the writing like that of your wife?—No, sir. Further evidence went to show .that the night before eloping for London Roberts stayed in the same house with Mrs. Morgan, who was seen by únô of the children to hand him. some money. The jury acquitted the male prisoner, and the Judge intimated that he would defer sen- tence in regard to the female prisoner until J Monday, whereupon her husband stepped for- ward and expressed his willingness to receive her back to his home for the sake of their Sewell children. He. felt quite satisfied in his ￼ mind, he said, that she was repentant. The Judge: Very well. Let her stand up. j Addressing the woman, who said she had no" ￼ thing to say, the Judge said- he had a dim- 1 culty to face, because lie did. not wish it to be supposed, that the offence was not stealing, It was an ordinary criminal offence, for which r she might be sent to prison for a lone time. I This he wished to be understood. It was no excuse because she stole the money obviously for immoral purposes. However, her husband had asked for lenie icy, and that meant, in so many words, that he did not wish her to be sent to prison Poor pc-ople who were out of work and were starving, and yet stole, were sent to prison, even where the motive was hunger. He musrt, not discriminate! between one class of people and another. Still, this case was a pel4iliiir one. The woman's health was bad, and it might be that if he sent her to prison she would either h8 kept in the gaol infirmary or discharged through poor health. He sincerely hoped she had come to her senses, and realised how wicked her con- duct had been. He was not called upon to express an opinion on her conduct of immora- lity, or to punish her for it. He had to deal with the crime of stealing. As there was no- thing else against her, he had persuaded himself to bind her over in the sum of £ 50. RAILWAY THEFTS. Richard Charles Maddocks- (34), Sandy Ter- race, L 13n clly, pleaded guilty to the indict- ment of stealing in the month of April a large number of articles, cocoa, chocolate, etc., the property of the Great Western Rail- I way Company. I Mr. Wilford Lewis prosecuted, and said that on October 8th, 1907, prisoner was con- victed for stealing cloth from the Great Wes- tern Railway Company. He was then an en- gine drivel', a.nd was dismissed. He after- wards employed his knowledge to steal from the trucks of the company. Detective Mount-joy (GW1) said that during the last twelve months many articles had been missed from the. neighbourhood, but- they could, not prove anything else agai^ nst the prisoner. His Lordship said he would not fake into account the fact that when arrested the prisoner threw a hottlel at the person arrest- ing him. He was bound to consider that in • October, 1907. when he was a railway servant, lie had, I)eeii. convicted for theft from, the com- pany. Railway servants had many opportu- nities to steal, and 'the company could only be prolected by the administration of the criminal Jaw. He (the judge), would not go on any suspicion that prisoner had been guilty I of previous thefts. I Sentence of nine months' hard labour was I passed. I KEPT THE TAKINGS. I George Herbert Thomas, fruit vendor, was charged with embezzling £2 10s. Id. from his employer, Maud Donoughe. Mr. W. Llewelyn Williams. M.P. (instructed by Mr. D R. Edmunds, Llanelly), appeared for the prosecution. I It was contended for the defence that Thomas, who was a fruit hawker, was in part- nership with Mrs. Donoghue, and that the profits were to be divided between them. On the day in question, however, he did not re- turn to share the day's takings. I 'l1h8 jury, however, found prisoner guilty, but, in view of his good character, the judge ?I)oiiiid him over to be of good behaviour in the sum of £ 10.
Proposed Skating Rink. ¡Proposed Sking Rink. I I SURVEYOR TO REPORT UPON THE COST. x; At a. meeting of the Estates Committee on Thursday last, a letter was read from the sec- retary of the Trades and Labour Council, sug- gesting that instead of the proposed bowling green the Council, should provide; a skating rink in the town. They suggested that the Market Hall would be a suitable place for the rink. The Chairman: We have decided to go in for a bowling green, and this Committee has full power to get the work done- I Air, W Bramwell Jones: I will give notice1 of motion that we rescind the resolution with regard to the bowling green. Mr. John Thomas asked whether they could get both on the same ground. Mr James Davies: We can ask the Surveyor to report as to the cost of converting part of the Market Hall into a skating rink. Mr. William Roberts: I think it will be necessary to re-lay the floor and purchase the skates. The Clerk said he did not think the Coun- cil wouia have the right to purchase <he skates. He woula :ot advise them, how eyer. sl?af,es. He ivoulct" ot allvi?,e thein, hc)"' ever, to do so, The Chairman: If we cam-lot p?'?? skates how can we purchase bowls? Mr. J;ohn Thomas: What is the season for the rink? The Chairman: They have skating rinks at the. seaside resorts all the year round. Mr. William Roberts moved that the Sur- veyor should present a report on the cost and as to whether the floor at the Market Hall would be suitable. The Chairman: This is an American craze, and it will be gone before you can get any- thing out of it. Mr W. Bramwell Jones: It is possible that by the time you get the Surveyor's report it will be gone (laughter). The proposition of Mr William. Roberts was agreed to. Mr. W. Bramwell Jones said the people who advocated the bowling green were new changing their opinions. They were to.'d at the time that the working-men were anxious to get, a bowling green, and now they had the members of the Trades and Labour Council, who represented them, stating that they wanted a skating rink. The Chairman: YOll assume that the Trades and Labour Conncil represent the working- men. Mr. W. Bramwell Jones: I take their word for it. Mr. William Roberts: Mr. Brarmvdl Jones is a representative of the working-vnt -i. Mr. Jones: Thank you, Mr. Roberts. I sup- pose you are taking the. result of the last election. The matter then dropped.
L Maintenance Order. I A KNOTTY CASE I At the Police Court on Monday John Harry, I Upper Inkcrman Street, made an application I to vary a maintenance order in respect of his wife, Sarah Harry, Stepney Place, Mr. l), R. Edmunds, who appeared for the applicant, said the applicant rnad-e the pay- ments in respect of the order regularly until the beginning of this' year. In August, 1307, he ceased, to work, and had ho means at all, except the little money he had saved. There was some money in Lloyd's BLiriloiji the joint names of the applicant and his son, but the amount had now been depleted to the extent of £ 13 odd, and the son claimed the amount. Applicant said lie lived with his step- daughters, and was 73 years of age. In July, 1906, an order of 6s. was made against him in respect of his wife, which he paid up to March of this year. He had no means at all at present, with the exception, of an old age pension of 5s. per week. He married the re- spondent about, five years ago. The respondent said that the applicant's statement with regard to his means was un- true. He had some money, but. ehe did not know where it was. She contended that he had two banking accounts Mr. D. R. Edmunds said that in February an offer was made of 2s. 6d. per week out of the old age pension, but the respondent took out a summons in respect of the arrears. Her action had soured her husband's relations, who were under no obligation to contribute anything. The Presiding Magistrate: I take it that the balance of 913 can be used. Mr. Edmunds: No; I submit that this case must not be considered from a Guardians' point of view. The Presiding Magistrate1: Do you mean to say that the applicant cannot get a penny out of this money of the Bank ? Mr. Edmunds: Not a penny of it. He has already depleted the account beyond the Bnm he was entitled tn, He has struggled hard in order to qualify himself for an old age pen- sion, and to keep away the taint of poverty, Mr. Thomas Jones: We make an order of 2s 6d. per week. I am still of the opinion that lie can have this money. Mr. Edn unds said it was not a sentimental question, and it ought to he considered from a legal aspect. There was no evidence that the applicant had any money apart from the 5s. per week, and the Legislature had come to the conclusion that that was only sufficient to keep a person. If the Bench adhered to their decision lie would have to ask them to state a case. Mr. Thomas Jones: The respondent will, be seventy before long. Mr. Edmunds contended that it was per- fectly rllegal for the Bench to take away 2s. 6d. out of the old age pension. Mr Thomas Jones: There is a joint account, and surely the applicant is entitled to half of it. Mr. Edmunds: Thai- might be the view of t the lay umid, but 1 submit he can not touch a. penny of it Mr, ThomM Jones: We have gh-tn our de- cision. Mr, Edmunds: Wen, I must Mk you t? I slate a case. I After a oonsuhaHon \\]111 the Clerk, iiul Beuc-h said they would defer their decision ¡ for a. month.

IIIntermediate Managers. I LABOUR MEMBER'S INGRATITUDE. At a meeting of the Urban District Council on Monday evening, apropos to the appoint- ment of six representatives on the Intermedi- ate School Managers, Mr. Nathan Griffiths i said he would agree to the re-appointment of the old members, with the exception of Mrs Lloyd, and he would propose the Rev W. Trevor Jones in her stead. He was sure no member of that Council would support the nomination of Mrs. Lloyd after the proposi- tion she made at the County Committee a week ago with regard to the border children. The Clerk said that under the new regula- tion the Council might appoint six represen- tatives, of whom one should be a woman, and in his opinion it was improper for them to have two to represent them. Mr. Willis Jones said that. in view of the departure of the Education Authority in sanc- tioning a new method in preparing the pupil teachers for scholarships, under the bursar system, they should have the Education Authority controlling the elementary educa- tion in the town in touch with the manage- ment of the Intermediate School. Mr. W. Bramwell Jones said they had al- ready a third of their representatives mem- bers of the Council. If they were to increase the representation it would make the com- mittee a committee of the; Council. Mr. Willis Jones said lie understood there were members on the Education Authority outside the Council, who represented tliem as managers of the Intel-mediate School. nie Clerk said the County Council were en- titled to appoint, ejghf. representatives, who were to reside outside the urban, district of Llanelly, out. of whom two should be women. The representatives they had at the present time, whose tinH" had expired, were Messrs. J. S, Tregoning, E T. Jones, Joseph Roberts, Dr. Johns, Mrs. Phillips, and Mrs, Lloyd. Mr. Simlett: Can we have the attendance of these representatives ? Mr. John Thomas: That is no good. Mr Simlett: What is the good of ua putting members there if they do not attend. The Clerk read a letter from Mr Tregoning, in which he stated that, probably, as he was not. a member of the Council, there would be no desiro appoint him for another period, but in case fhe suggestk,>J should be made, he stated that lie could not uiidil'iake to £ ive the necessary attention to this work any longer, and lie wished 10 thank the Council for allowing him to see so much of the work- ing of the Welsh Intermediate Act. The Chairman said he would much regret missing Mr. Tregoning from the governing body of the Intermediate School. If there was any institution in Llanelly which had Te eeived so much of his time and whole-hearted i attention, it was' the Llanelly Intermediate S/diool His services in connection with the amendment to the eduoatioh scheme and the general changes in the curriculum of the school had been invaluable to the committee. It would be a distinct loss to lose him from, the Committee. Mr. D. James Davies: Does that letter actu- ally mean that lie will not be re-elected. Mr. Nathan Griffiths asked whether it did not state, in the Act that a member must give his willingness to act as manager in writing. Mr. W. Bramwell Jones: I hope 'Mr. Grif- fiths is not- going to stand upon any techni- cality. Mr. D. R. Jones: They must give their con- sent. in writing after being elected, not before they are nominated. Mr. Joseph Roberts said he could re-echo the words of the Chairman with regard to Mr Tregoning. To lose Mr. Tregoning would mean losing the best member amongst the Intermediate School Managers. He would move the re-appointment of M'r. Tregoning. Mr. John Thomas seconded. The following were then elected as gover- nors Messrs E. T. Jones, Joseph. Roberts, J. S. Tregoning, Dr. Johns, Rev. W. Trevor Jones, and Mrs. Phillips. Jone, aii(I Ali.-s. Plii.ll-lps. Mr D. n. Jones proposed that they vote by ballot. Mr. John Thomas appealed to Mr. Jones not to press his motion The period of office was only one year. A member: Xo. three years. Mr. Thomas: Well, three years will come to an end (laughter). If you, desired te vote by ballot it ought to have. been said before AiiN vote was taken. Mr. D. R. Jones: I will press my proposi- tion on principle. I think the voting 11;18 been carried on unfairly. Mr. Nathan Griffiths rose to a point of rr- der. They had already passed a resolution, and was it possible for them to after a :itESO- lution without, giving notice to rescind it He desired the Clerk to explain the matter. The Clerk: It is the Chairman's function. The. Chairman said he was not. anxious to rule in the matter, and, although he was vice-chairman of the Governing Body. lie was prepared to relinquish his scat in favour of Mr. Bramwell Jones. Mr. Jones: No, not at all. The Chairman then declared the foregoing .six members elected. The Chairman said it would he unbecoming on their part to allow the occasion to pass by without referring to the past services of Mrs Lloyd as a member of the governing body of the Intermediate School. She was invaluable on tli3 House Committee, and always very re- gular in her attendance. The interest she had taken in the school was very great, and he moved tbut their besl thanks be accorded to Mrs. Lloyd. Mr. Simlett seconded. It. had been ex- plained that they could only appoint one lady instead of two. He believed they were losing a very good member. I Mr. Herhert D. Rees, In supporting, said, I that Mrs. Lloyd had g'lv?n every assistance hi order that the Education Committee might Ob-I tam their end in regard to the border child- ren. He was speaking' to a member of the County Committee, who told him that Mrs. Lloyd lad been most active in endeavouring I to come to a settlement with the Cuuntv Authorities. Mr Nathan Griffiths said he was not a hypocrite, and he could not vote for a vote of thanks to Mrs. Lloyd. He must ten them that he doubted Mr. Rees's assertion. He was speaking the previous evening to Mr. James, the secretary of the Parents' Com- mittee, at the 'Furnace, who gave a different, version altogether. Mrs. Lloyd did not assist the parents. She actually moved that a sub- committee of the Carmarthenshire Education Committee should endeavour to provide a temporary building at the Furnace. If she had moved that the children should be sent back to Old Road School and that the County should pay 17s. 6d. per head for the education of the children, it would have been better, and she did not deserve the thanks of the town. Members: SlJiu11e! I' Mr. Nathan Griffiths: Shame or not, lain speaking my mind. I. The Chairman: I do not know what Mrs Lloyd has done for the rural children, but. I am sure her service? at the Intermediate sehftbi have been invaluable to the town, Mr. Bramwell Jones f-aid that after Mr?. "Lloyd's i,services at the Intermediate School, I he hoped N?-???s?.'ou.ld withdraw h? rema.rl?. Mr. Nathan CriiIlH)s: 1 h;we nottunF ? ga¡nst her as regards the Intermediate School. I do object, to her action aT the County Committee. The. Chairman said lie was glad that Mr. Griffiths -would join them in according a vote of thanks to Mrs. Lloyd. I Mr J. Walter Thomas said that the remarks should be withdrawn. Mr. Nathan Griffiths: I will not withdraw anything I am only speaking of her con- duet at" the County Committee. It. was subsequently unanimously decided to accord the best thanks of the Council to Mrs. Lloyd for her admirable services to the Intermediate School.
Agreement Without Force. I LLANELLY ACTION DISMISSED. In the Chancery Division on Wednesday of last week, Mr. Justice Warrington continued the hearing of an action brought by Mr. R. Hughes, now residing at Cardiff, against Mr- Joseph Charles Edmunds, for specific perfor- mance of an agreement to grant him a lease of the Tymelyn Hotel, Llanelly, or for damages in lieu thereof. Mr. Rowden, K.C., and Mr. Simey appeared for the plaintiff,, and Mr. George Cave, K.C., M.P., and Mr. W. Ll. Williams, M.P. (instructed by Mr D. R. Ed- munds, Llanelly), represented the defendant. At the close of the case for the plaintiff Mr Cave submitted that the document on which Mr. Hughes sued was not an agreement, uud that therefore the action failed. Mr. Rowden argued that the document was good. In answer to the learned Judge, Mr. Cave said lie was content to take his decision on the point of law. Mr Justice Warrington said the question lio had to decide was, did the documents show [ that these parties were at the time in com- plete agreement as to the terms upon which? j the house was to be taken? In his opinion they did not, It was impossible for him to I say that on the 20th of June the parties had agreed to the terms upon which the house was to be let. They might, have intended to bind themselves, but they had not arrived at the terms by which they were to fre byUQili There was no agreement to which snv fûlOO ('II 'Itl j,ô r' could he 1'" eit-lisr fOT specific perfor- i mance or by way of damages. The action, Therefore, failed, and defendant must have the costs. Mr. Cave said he did not press the counter- claim. Mr. Justice Warrington said that would be dismissed, and defendant must pay the costs of it.
h Slaughter- h ouse Anomaly. THE MEAT INSPECTION. At a meeting of the Estates Committee on Thursday afternoon, the question of meat in- spection at the Slaugter-house was delisted. It was alleged that the! animals were killed, and the meat taken out, before Mr. Hill, the veterinary inspector, had a chance c-f seeing it Mr. Hill explained that this occurred when the animals were taken late at night into the Slaughter-house from the Station. The ani- mals were killed and the meat taken out not later than 8.30 in the morning. Mr. W. Bramwell Jones: How do they take it out without your permission? The Chairman (Mr. Guest): The Mye-laws state that the butchers are not to take meat out, within ten hours until it is inspeced. Mr Hill: They do not get permission. They take it. away themselves. Mr. W. Bramwell Jones: How do they get ill ? Mr. Hill: The caretaker is there about six o'clock. Mr W. Bramwell Jones*Thai man to seo that nothing shall leave the, Slaugl/er-housG unless it, has been inspected. The Clerk: I understood that there is no system of marking the meat to show that it has been inspected. I do not know whether we could have a system whereby it "ould be marked. Mr. Hill: We can mark the meat without injuring it in any way. Mr. W. BramweH Jones said the r>ute'ftersi took the meat out at six o'clock in ibe room- ing, when their caretaker was there. Their officials were to blame for letting it, go out. Mr. Hill said that there neyer had been a system with regard to the present question at the Slaughter-house. He had been J pying to get a system, but it had been haul?:eci every time. Mr. W. Bramwell Jones: We have tried to get a system, there Mr. Hill said he did not blame vJonneil. The system at the present time wgs worse, and it was being done with his expressed dis- approval. They keys had been left with the butchers, which was done to the knowledge of Mr. Hopkins. Mr. William Roberts said it would be better for them to defer the question, so .nat Mr. Hopkins could attend. Mr. Hill said that Mr. Hopkins was in charge of the Slaughter-house. He ;.Mr Hill) had not interfered with him in any way. ITo had received a letter from Mr. T Morgans, but.cher; in which he stated that he regretted to have to complain as to the manner things were being carried on at. the Slaughter-house. He had lost some sheep skins, etc., which he> valued at 28s. He (Mr. Hill) knew Coat thiev- ing was going on there every week. He had instructed the police to keep observation, on the place, but the offenders woe in the butchering trade. They were not -he outside public. They watched the caretaker, and were taking things away when he not possibly be there to watc-h them. It was decided to defer the matrc until the next meeting when Mr. Hopkins ■/■■"aid be asked to attend.
