I MR'. JENKIN JONES.! I -I
I MR'. JENKIN JONES.! I Death of Swansea T <* ?1 ￼ Justice's Clerk. .—— -1 I Close of a Long Career 1 I -i With much regret we announce the death of Mr. Jenkin Jones, magistrates' clerk of Swansea, which occurred at his residence, Eden-avenue, Uplands, Swan- sea, on Sunday afternopn. Mr. Jones had attained the age of 75 years, and up to about two years ago he regularly attended the police courts of Swansea and district, where his activity and mental alertness won daily incroasing wonder and admiration. I REMARKABLE CAREER. j His public career was a remarkably long one. At the age of only 13 years he entered the office of Mr. Thomas Attwood. the then magistrates' clerk, and was articled to Mr. E. T. Leyslion. Mr. .vas art' e',cd tc4 Jones was admitted a solicitor a 1879. At the death of Mr. Bo wen in 1875, who sue- LATE MR. JENKIN JONES. f ceeded Mr. Attwood, and who held the I position for ten years, Mr. Jones was ap- pointed clerk to the magistrates of the Borough of Swansea and the Petty Ses- sional Divisions of the Hundred of Swan- I sea, Gower, and Pontardawe. PUNCTUAL AND REGULAR I Throughout the whQle of his long tenure 1 of office, Mr. Jones's punctuality and regu- larity of attendance at the courts was phenomenal. lie had the utmost confi- dence of the magistrates and the legal pro- fession, and his impartiality and sound- ness as a lawyer gained for him a won- derful reputation as a magistrates' clerk. He saw the passing and entry of many fatuous advocates. Amongst these was Sir Samuel Evans, the late President of the Admiralty, Probate, and Divorce Courts, who in his youth practised in South Wales. The soundness of his advice was evidenced by the fact that appeals against decisions by the justices were few, and it was rare that the decision of a court to which he acted as cl('rk was reversed on appeal. His interventions in cases were always of the most common-sense and helpful kind. The Swansea Licensing Court, under the chairmanship of the late Mr. Howell Watkin« and the clerkship of Mr. Jenkin Jones, was one of the foremost to take advantage of the decision that a public- house license could be refused on the ground of redundancy. At this licensing court the array of legal talent was almost unique. Always a smart, well-groomed figure, his office was always an example of orderly neatness. I PRESENTATION FROM COLLEAGUES! In August, 1907, he received a notable j presentation from his fellow solicitors, on completion of fifty years' connection with law. This took the form of an illuminated address in album form, which testified to his efficiency, urbanity, and kindness. He was also the recipient of a presentation from the Pontardawe magistrates on his retirement as clerk of that division. He had not been in good health for three or four years, but was fairly well up to Christmas eve. He leaves a widow, one son—Mr. Herbert Trevor Jones—and live daughters—two of whom are married, Mrs Pov?ll, of Huntingdon, and Mrs? (Major) Morgan, Caerphilly. The funeral will j;; ;;p place on Wednes- day, the arrangements being in the I hands of Messrs. D. G. Phillips and Son I TRIBUTE FROM BENCH. At the Swansea Police Court on Mon- day morning. Mr. Richard Martin, the chairman of the Bench, s,:kid that before the court proceeded to business it was his tad lot to inform the court that they had Lest their 'clerk by death. They could not let this occasion pass without expressing their great regret at the loss the court had sustained. The court had been served for 44. years by Mr. Jenkin Jones. and. as he learned, in only-one instancfe during those 44 years had his judgment been overruled by any other court. It was a marvellous thing to say of a man's judg- ment being so sound. He thought the court would like to put on record its ap- preciation of his wonderful advice and the soundness of his advice. The Chairman, proceeding, said that his own experience with Mr. Jones was that one could always depend on the personal element being eliminated, and justice: only being put into force. lIe thought it would be right that they should also sav that they expressed their great sympathy with the family in the great loss thev I had sustained in his passing away. I OTHER TRIBUTES. Mr. J. W. Thorpe undertook to convey the expressions of the Bench to the family. He spoke of the deceased gentle- man as one who had served under hiia for 12 years, and who felt his passing verv keenly. Mr. John Lake said he had been witli Mr. Jenkin Jones for a great many years, and had always found him a very kind man who was considered to be one of tho most able magistrates' clerks in thl, country. His judgment was sound, and ot his great knowledge he assisted everyon" in the court. Mr. Rupert Lewis, on behalf of the legl profession, associated himself with at these remarks, and that nersoualh he felt very deeply the loss of Mr. Jone'J. It was 22 years lie (Mr. Lewis) had flYIn to Swansea, and had alwavs received the aid of Mr. Jonvs. It was' the cml1 of great pain to himself personally and to others to watch him failing in that court as had. Those who knew him in hi; i best dtvs would fe?! bis loss very deeply I If A FRIEND TO THE FORCE." I Supt. Roberts said he had known Mr. Jenkin Jones for over 30 years, and he had always been a friend to the members of the force. Th.y would all regret very much to hear of hrs-deftth. Mr. W. A. Davies, on behalf of those members of the legal profession who did not appear very oftcii at court, spoke of the kind courtesy Mr. Jones always ex- tended to his 'younger brothers. He felt the profession had lost a friend whose death they would always deplore-
