NEWPORT'S NEW BYE LAW. I AN ATTEMPT TO SUPPRESS STREET I BETTING. At the Newport Borough Police Court to-day Wm. Chambers, who was stated to be a book- maker, resident in Dean-street, was summond for frequenting Griiffn-street for the purpose of betting. Mr A. A. Newman (Town Clerk) ap- peared to prosecune, and Mr L. Moore, solicitor, represented the defendant. Mr Newman ex- plained that the prosecution was taken under a WHV bye-law which had been recently sancdoued y e Homo Secretary. Under this bye-law it was only necessary to prove that a person was in tne street for the purpose of betting. B.C. Friend stated that on Thursday, 17th inst., he saw Chas, tfright, a railway employee, of 7, West-street, fto to the defendant in Gnffifi-Mtreet and give him a pi per. In answer tc Mr Moore, witness said that no one was obstructed by defendant, he made no noise, and he was only in the street for a mmute. Chas. Bright abated that he gave the defendant a paper and a sovereign which he received from a man named Smith, who asked him to give it to Chambers. He did not know what was on the paper. Mr Moore took the objection that the bye Jaw had not been passed. The magistrates, however, decided that if necessary they would adjourn the case for a week in order that the bye law might be proved. Mr Moore said that the case for the prosecution had closed, and pointed out that iu a case unuer the Cardiff Bye Laws the Deputy Stipendiary upheld a similar objection. Mr Moore then contended that the bye law was bad, and pointed out that the bye law iriusb not only be for the good government of the town but also for tha suppression of a nuisance, and that it must be a legal nuisance. If the Bench held the bye law to be good, Mr Moore contended that there had b' en no breach in the case in question. If the Magistrates held the case proved candidates at an elect,ion if they wagered, in the street, a pair of gloves or a new hat on the result,, mighb be brought before the Court-The Bench held that the evidence was insufficient, and therefore dismissed the case.
