STREET BETTING AT NEWPORT. I Bookmakers Prosecuted and Fined. I The Newport magistrates at their sitting to-day dealt with a number of tases brought under the borough bye taws made to prevent street betting. In the first case the defendants were John Westlake, 3, Tredegar-soreet; Albert Davies, George and Dragon-oourt Sidney Mofitgridge, Carlisle-plaoe, North-street, des- cribed as bookmakeR, who were summoned for using Portland-street for the purpose of bookmaking, betting, &o. Mr A. A. Newman, Town Clerk, who appeared to prosecute, pointed out that since the last batch of cases were before the court an appeal had been heard in the High Court against a conviction under an identical bye-law, and the High Court had upheld the con- viction and decided that the bye-Jaw was valid. P.O. Br!stowe stated that he saw 42 persons go to the three defendants whilst in Portland-street on the 1st mst. He saw money pass, and entries were made by the defendants in their books. In answer to Mr Moore, who appeared for the defence, witness said that he did not see anyone obstructed but he received complaints from passers by. Mr Moore, for the defence, contended that there was no evidence of betting or of anyone having been annoyed by the defendants. The Bench con- sidered the case proved, and fined defendants 20s each. The Town Clerk said that the only objeob of the prosecution was to put a atop to street betting. The other cases against defendants, and that against Henry Westlake, father of John WeStlake, were then withdrawn.
