-"IIRNNIIRIRNTMI— MNIRIIIIN IRRM— ■UMIIIWIMWR-RNRNWI ■IIMI MM IFI—IIINIIIII—I—I PENARTH POLICE COURT. WEDNESDAY.—Before Col. Thornley and Mr T. R. Thompson. j, CHARGE OF PERMITTING DRUNKENNESS. I Considerable local interest was evinced in the case of the Police v. Andrew Garrick, landlord of Ship Hotel, Penarth, charged with permitting drunkenness on licensed premises on the night of the 17th ultimo. The evidence for the prosecution, given by P.C.'s Kear (330) and Mendus (97), was to the effect that on the night in question they saw an old man named Ezekiel Marron enter the hotel whilst in a drunken condition. They waited outside for a couple of minutes to see whether the man would be ejected. The officers subsequently entered, and found the man with three women in the jug and bottle department, each with a glass of beer before them. The attention of the bar- maid and landlord was called to the man's condition. The former said she did not know that Marron was the worse for drink, but the landlord when called admitted that he was drunk.— Inspector Hallett corroborated as to Marron's inebriate state. — In defence, Mr J. H. Jones, solicitor, Cardiff, pleaded that Marron, who was quite orderly, betrayed no indication of drunken- ness, and was supplied by the barmaid through a pigeon hole from the long bar, where she could not see him except partially. Some men, Mr Jones added, got drunk in the head and others got drunk in the legs, but in the present instance Marron spoke intelligently and readily spelt his Christian name, and if there was a conclusive proof of a man's sobriety it was that Marron was able to spell Ezekiel correctly. (Laughter.)—The defendant, Gwendoline Thomas (barmaid), Amelia Evans, and Mary Sherrard were called toprovelthat Marron was not intoxicated when he was supplied with drink.—The Bench were of opinion that the defendant had not exercised proper supervision in the conduct of his house, and he was not justified in allowing this cupboard of a place," the jug and bottle department, to be used for the supply of customers for drinking purposes. There was no previous complaint against Garrick, who seemed to have properly conducted the place hitherto. He would, therefore, have the benefit of the doubt, and the case would be dismissed, but the justices urged defendant to be more careful in future. EASTBROOK MAID CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. A young woman named Alice Auckland, living with her parents at Eastbrook, was charged with attempting to commit suicide by drowning herself in a pond at Howis Farm, Eastbrook, on the even- ing of the 8th instant. The circumstances were somewhat singular. The occupier of the farm said he heard a splash in the pond on Monday evening, but thinking there were boys bathing in the pond he took no notice of the circumstance. Half-an-hour later he passed the pond and saw the girl lying in the water. He pulled her out, and for nearly two hours she was unconscious. On the following morning the girl was arrested by P. C. Peacock (241), and in reply to the charge of attempted suicide she said she went to the pond to dip up some water for the CGlt, when she became giddy and fell into the water on her head.-Dr F. T. Roche, Dinas Powis, said Auckland was subject to epileptic fits.-The girl's father was present in court, and having promised to take care of his daughter, she was dismissed with a caution. SUNDAY DISORDERLY SCENES AT PENARTH. Three Cardiff youths, named Eugenie Daly, Humphrey Williams, and James Driscoll, were summoned for being drunk and disorderly on Sunday evening last at Penarth. The police stated that owing to numerous complaints they watched the neighbourhood of the Esplanade Hotel, and found the defendants in a drunken state, behaving in a disorderly manner, and jost- ling against people. They would not go away, and the constables placed them under arrest.— Colonel Thornley said the conduct of people who came over from Cardiff on Sunday for the pur- pose of obtaining drink was disgraceful. The defendants would be fined 7s 6d each, or be sent to prison for seven days. A FAMOUS NAME. Hector Macdonald is a sailor, who was found in a very drunken and disorderly state at Penarth on Tuesday last, and he was fined 7s 6d. CYCLIST OFFENDERS. Arthur Skinner, who did not appear, was fined 10s, and Fred Skinner and Joseph Danter 5s each, for riding thmr bicycles on the footpath at Llandough. A GUNNER'S THIRST. Gunner Robert Roberts, R.A., stationed at Lavernock Fort, was ordered to pay a penalty of 5s for falsely representing himself to be a hma-jide traveller for the purpose of obtaining drink at the Esplanade Hotel, Penarth.
