BOROUGH MAGISTRATES' COURT. I MONDAY, APGUST 8, 1870. I Before T. C. Jones, Esq., 0. O. Williams, Esq., I and E. Davies, Esq. APPLICATION FOR -THE TRANSFER OF A LICENSE. I Mr Glascodine, -as trustee of the estate of Mr Whittaker, made'aa application for the transfer of the license of the refreshment room at the r&lway station, from Mr Whittaker to Mr Mnrless, of the Wynnstay Arms Hotel. The estate was in liquida- tion, and he vas carrying on the business at pre- sent, but he wished to get lid of it. Mr Mnrless had made flim an off-r, and the transfer of the license would, he hoped, benefit the estate in some degree.- Me T. C. Jones remarked that unfor- tunately their clerk was unavoidably absent, having been summoned to a relative who was ill at Harro- gate.—Mr Jones taid he was acting as locum ttnm,s for the clerk, but as he appeared in a case referring to the place in question some time ago, he did not wish to take any part in the matter. Mr T. C. Jones said Mr Glascodine had better make his application next week, when their clerk would be present. F JHN JONES, OF RENTREFEUN." I Samuel viuriier was summoned for drinking in a pnblic-h< U:>e during illegal hours on Sunday. P.C. Gee had, at seven o'clock one Sabbath morning, caught the defendant discussing a pint of ale, which was given him by the landlady, in the kitchen at the Three Tuns Inn, Town Hill. He then gave the name of "John Jones, of Penhv- felin," and declined to mention the nature of his occupation, saying that was his business.-CTarner innocently thought the officer was a lodger in the house, he being without his uniform and he gave the wrong name because he thought Gee was chaffing" him.—His matutinal pint of ale was I the means of his being fiued 5s. and 9s. costs. SONTDTTLE. I The bench was occupied for some time in deciding the s quabbles of two rival families living in Tuttle-.streec. The first case was that of Margaret Young against Anne Owens, for asing abusive and insulting language tending to create a breach of the peace. On Monday last, it was stated, that the defendant had, at half-past one o'clock, called the complainant anything but a chaste wouitn, and when she told her she would bring her before the local authorities she made a threat that she would take seven shillings' worth out of htr face.—A sister-in-law, Mary -Roberts, having supported this evidence, the defendant injudiciously remarked that if she got six months for it she would pay her for it when she got home. —Defendant said all the parties came home drunk on Sunday night from Marchwiel rush-bearing, and her boy aud a youth called Chatty," a young hopeful of Margaret Hayes's, were set to til-bt by them. The t-ght was continued on Monrlav mcrning, and as one of them was beaten—Chatty, we understood—the complainant's party proposed that the fathnrs and mothers should try con- clusions. The complainant so annoyed her, that she admitted threatening to tbftSh her if she did not discontinue. SECOND CASK. 11 Margaret Young next charged the husband of the defendant in the last case, William Owens, with a similar offence. During the row between the women it was alleged that the defendant came out of his house druuk, and after expressing a desire to fi-ht the complainant's husband, or, in his absence, his father, he commenced to call her a selection of epithets to be found in the Pontuttle dictionary.—The sister-in-law's evidence took the same view of the matter. THIRD CASE. This was a subsequent e-ffair, and the parties changed places, Anne Owens charging Margaret Young with using abusive language on Tuesday. Mrs UwellB alleged that the defendant and fourteen of her family from all p&rts of the town, came down the street in a state of drunkenness, and, in passing, after exhibiting her tongue, the length of which we fear to contemplate, and making -a move- ment more demonstrative than delicate, she called her everything but what she was-a decent woman. Her mtJ:uer also desired a contest with her.—A witness, culled by the complainant, spoke of the provoking action referred to, but said that after- wards the conduct of both parties was too bad even for Pontuttle.—After listening to Margaret Hayes, a sister-in-law of the defendant, the bench decided to hear the FOURTH AD LAST CASE. I Anne Owens summoned Eliza Hayes, an aunt of I Margaret Young, whe lives in that mysterious nook—the Hole-iu-the wall-for a similar offence. It was stated that Mrs Hayes slandered her character, and had wanted her to fight the same time as the last affair.- Mar-craret Hughes, for the complainant, again gave her opinion that oae party was as bad as another and then there occurred sueh a scene amongst the ladies—such protestations aud denials—that they had to be separated.—Mr T. C. Jones said the bench agreed with the witness that all the parties were one as bad as the otL€Z,.and they would be bound over to keep the peace in ZIO each for six months, each party to pay his or her own costs, 8s. each. William Owens was bound over in the charges made against him and his wife by Margaret Young; and the other cases were adjourned in order that the husbands might come forward and lay themselves under the same penalty for the good behaviour of their wives in fulure. & A REXSAKT OF THE FIGHTING CASE. I In the case of Mr J. M. Jones, Cam, against Peter Ryan for 6?btiDg, tha defendant's fat;r appeared and was bound over to keep the peace on behalf of his pugilistic son. ENDORSEMENTS. The license of the Tiger Inn, Beast Market, was endorsed from Mr Wiilcocks to Mr Thomas Evans, late of the Corn Exchange; aud that of the latter house from Mr T. Evans to Mr Thomas .Hill Beddow.
