JUDGE OWEN IN THE DARK NO ELECTRICITY IN NEWPORT COUNTY-COURT. The town-clerk of Newport (Mr. A. A. X W1!nan), at a recent moating of a local autho- rity, with a good dtal of-nonchalance, declared, with reference to the installation of the town- haU with electric light, that the corporation had "burnt their boats," mooning that they had absolutely dwarded ¡. His Honour Judge Owen, who sat at the Town-hall on Thursday, can hardly be expected to join in the eXl>ltà. tion with which the tmm-<-I.k viewed the situa- tion. When the judge entered the court at 10.30 the place was in grey, weird darkness. It was a wet, miserably depressing mornang, and to enter thecou,rt unable to see the charac- ters in a book, or discern the features of per. sons 6ft. away was, to say the least, irritat- jng.H". Honour scfcTWikv-d that he <$>n-j. dered it very discourteous on the part of thu corporation officials that, knowing the court had to sit on that day, they did not make any arrangoemen for having the court lighted in any way. He would retire until the, was wm" light by which the business oould be cl.nduoled. Conin" tI", town-hall keeper, found himself unable to turn on the elrotrio light, because new connections were being made from the main from which the Town-hall was supplied, and the current was temporarily withdrawn. Whilst hi" honour was affray in his retiring-room a couple of penny candles were procured, and placed 011 the bench oppo- site hi. h. -t, an d a coup l e ?f others e hÎM;d'l'h:g¡I' d:te TheO¡ ¡ commenced work amid&ot this eerie scene, the light being at intervals reinf jrced by the arrival singly of oil lamp",
