I CAERGWRLE. EXTRAORDINARY ALLEGATIONS—At! the C-aergwrle Petty Session, on Thursday, ho- fore Messrs. H. H. Hughes (in the chair), W. G. Barcroft and William Fryer, a collier, of Caergwrle named George Tudor, was summoned by his wife, who applied for an order of separa- tion on the ground of persistent cruelty.—Mr. J. B. Marston (Mold), who appeared for complain- ant, -assured the bench that th.? oas? was one of the worst they had heard. Defendant, he said, was al ways most cruel at tho time his wife was approaching maternity and was entitled to his greatest consideration. She had fled from tho house- at nights on twenty separate occasions, and onoe he ohascd her and her children with a loaaod guii, which, acting on the advice of Tudor's mothel" the wife Hubsrquently destroyed. Razors with which he had threatened his wife Iwid been taken possession of by neighbours, who still retained them, while he had also threa- tened her with a carving knife. Some years ago Mis. Tudor found it necessary to have. her husband arrested for assault—Mrs. Tudor said they were married at Hope Church 16 years ago, and there were six children of the marriage. Defendant was addicted to drink, and frequently ill-used her. On the 13th ult. he came home in drink, and commenced cursing and swearing. Ho attempted to strike- her, but their daughter intervened. II? got her by the hair and ° beat her about the lica-d and knocked her down. Ho then ran her out of the house, and she was joined by her daughter, who remained with her to see if defendant would cpiieten down and go to bed, but he did not do so. and they remained out all night. On the following day she re- turned to fOe2- if he would behave himself, but he threatened to finish her if she did not clear out. She then left, and had not been to the house since. Complainant then spoke to pre- vious ac-is of cruelty referred to by her advocate, —pof^da-nl-, in reply to the Chairman, said his wife frequently Ieft him to drink with other wom?in. The reason of the disturbance on tho 13th ult. was that he insisted upon the- oldost girl's remaining indoors at night. His wife had run him into debt to the exteat. of over £ 40. He denied that he was addicted to drink, and urgrxi that h? had never lost time from work owing to drink.—The Chairman said it was a very serious case, and' it was fortunate for de- fendant he was not there on a more, serious charge. An order of separation would be granted, with 17s. 6d. p"r week maintenance, and £ 1. lis. 6d. costs, and the custody of the liIix children.
