Brown, Agent to the Black Lane Colliery, Pent re Broughton, for damaging lamps, gauge glasses, and other property, belonging to the Company, of the value of A 14 10s.- Mr. Wynn Evans represented the boys.—It appeared from the evidence of the prosecution that on Feb. 20th the Colliery was closed, and all the officês was secured On the 24th it was found that con- siderable damage had been done to the place. The colliers's lamps and several of the engine gauges had been smashed. Several doors had been forced open and the windows of the engine house were also broken. A boy named Pryce Griffiths (15), said he went to the Colliery with other boys on a Monday in February. The defendants were on the premises. Altogether, between 40 and 50 boys were there.— P.O. J. O. Williams, who chased three of the lads from the Pithead on Feb. 22nd, and P.S. Howells gave evidence that when confronted with each other the defendants admitted the offence and handed over the tools belonging to the Company, which had been taken away.—Mr. Evans said defendants' con- duct was a foolish Act of tresspass which could not be defended, and he could only ask the Court to deal leniently with them in view of their previous good character.—The magistrates ordered each boy to pay A2 towards the damage caused to the Com- pany's property.
