St. Andrew's Llwynypia. I Sucoessful Sale of Work. I A sale of work and cafe chantant was held at the Church Hall, Tonypandy, on Thursday, the 19th inst., which proved to be a huge success. The Vicar (the Rev. D. W. Davies, B.A.), in giving details of the church debt (towards which the pro- ceeds were to go), said that two years and a half ago. when he came to the parish as incumbent, there was a debt of £ 950 on the Parish Church and St. David's Church. During the last two years this debt had been reduced, mainly bv subscriptions, by £ 450 (approximately) £ 244 Is. of this had been got from generous people outside the parish, some of whom had interests in the parish, and L204 7s. Id. had come from parishioners themselves. He thought that a very creditable contribution from parishioners, considering the hard times they had gone through. The Vicar regretted that Mr. A. G. Brown, who had promised to open the proceedings that day, was unavoid- ably kept away by important business; and so was also Mr. Edwin Thomas. He therefore called upon Mrs. Alfred Jones, the Lower Surgery, Tonypandy, to open the sale of work, which Mrs. Jones did in a few well-chosen words. Mr. W. E. Jones, the secretary, proposed a vote of thanks to Mrs. Jones, which was seconded by the Rev. J. L. Philips, and a hearty vote of thanks was accorded to the stall- holders, tray-holders, ticket sellers, and all workers by the Rev. D. H. Evans, and seconded by Dr. Alfred Jones, and sup- poi-ted by Mr. F. G. Lowe. There were three stalls, all of which tvere loaded with beawtiful and useful things. One stall was furnished by Mrs. Weichert and the members of the Mothers' Union. This stall was presided over by Mrs. Weichert, the enrolling member, assisted by Mrs. George Hoyle, Mrs. Sam Davies, and Mrs. Llewellyn, Pimmer. The other two stalls (plain and fancy) were furnished by the associates, members and candidates of the Girls' Friendly Society. The Fancy Stall was presided over by Mrs. Spiekernell and Miss David, and the Plain Stall by Mrs. Lewis, Court Street, and Airs.

Porth Police Court. r f 1 t. First Court. Thursday, Feb. 19.—Before the Stipen- diary (Mr. D. Lleufer Thomas), Mr. Wm. Evans, and Dr. T. W. Parry. ON TENANT'S SIDE. In a case in which an ejectment order -was applied for. his Worship, after hear- ing the evidence, said: "If I must lean on one side, it must be on the side of the -i tenant." -The case was decided in favour of the tenant. OLD OFFENDER. Emma Retallick, who had only a week previously made her 222nd appeartAice at Pontypridd Police Court, when the charge was dismissed on her promising to go to Llantrisant, again appeared. Emma's stay at Llantrisant was a short one, and at 11 o'clock one evening she presented herself at the police station with the rc- cjue-st that she should be locked up. When "told to go away, she became abusive and 'disorderly. Addressing defendant, his Worship said she had exhausted their patience. In reply to a question if he knew of al l ine b i-i an inebriate home, Mr. Llewellyn (Court •ttiissionary) said lie would make enquiries, whereupon his Worship remarked: "They are too parsimonious to provide homes ior people of this kind." She was remanded until Monday. UMBRELLA REPAIRER S TRICK AND ALLE-GED THEFT. Two charges were preferred against Win. Church, an um brella repairer, of no 3xed abode. The first was that in which it was stated by Margaret Lambard, a single woman, residing at Mount Pleasant, Forth, defendant approached her near the Tynewydd Hotel on the 14th inst., and took hold of her umbrella, which he said required repairing. Witness said she did not want it repaired, and defendant Replied: "I will do it for nothing?' She replied: Very well." and after he had completed the repairs he told her the charge would be Is. 6d. Witness told him she could not pay for it. and his reply Wben you get the money you shall have it." He then walked away, and she gave information to the police. The Stipendiary You did not think he \as going to repair it free of cost, did Witness: I told him not to do it. A barmaid at the Tynewydd Hotel, f^ined Jane Thomas, said defendant came 3nto the bar and offered the umbreUa for Sale. She gave him Is. 6d. for it, and afterwards handed it to the police. The Stipendiary I don't think you -should buy anything from customers. It not your business; people will bring anything. I would be very much sur- prised if the licensee permitted you to do anything of that kind. P.C. Gwyn proved the arrest of defen- dant. Defendant was also charged with the alleged theft of an umbrella, the pro- perty of Joseph Wm. Jenkins, Mount Pleasant, Porth, who said that on the 4th inst. he went to Mr. Porter's shaving saloon in Aber-Rhondda Road. He left his umbrella in a stand, and about five minutes afterwards, defendant opened the door and shouted out, Have you a job for the tinker? When he went to look for the umbrella (which he valued at 10s. 6d.) it was missing. Evidence was given by Rd. James, a boy employed at the shop, and Wm. Curtis, Cemetery Road, Porth. The latter said he found the umbrella in a lane at the back of the Tvnewydd Hotel. Defendant admitted taking the first umbrella in the manner stated, and after- wards selling it, but said he knew nothing ubout the second one. His Worship said he had got the first one by a trick, but as there was nothing quite recent of a similar kind against him, he would pass a much lighter sen- tence than he had first of all thought of "giving. On the first charge he was sent, down for a month, and the second charge was dismissed. "To mark our view of your action in buying the article," said his Worship to the barmaid (Jane Thomas), the cost of the transaction will be disallowed." THE PROCESSION NIGHT. I I got full the night of the proces- sion," said John Thomas Howell, Ynyshir. His WTorship said he was sorry he should be the one man to be brought up. It was not honouring a man by getting Jnto that state; it was dishonouring him. He was told to go. DRUNK AND DISORDERLY. I Nathaniel 'Williams, Tylorstown, for being drunk and disorderly at Tonypandy on the 14th inst., was fined 15s. STAGGERING DRUNK. A similar fine, cr the alternative of seven days, was imposed upon Roes Owen, Tonyrefall. who was found staggering a bout in Llantrisant Road. SUNDAY DRUNKS. Morris Roberts and Thomas Morgan, both of Tonyrefail, were charged with being drunk and disorderly on Sunday, the 5th inst., at Tonyrefail. P-S. Watkins said that at the time ?opie were coming from places of wor- ?hip. They were each fined 20s. i?*!• ] < HIS VIEW. j 1, An Irishman, named Dennis Connelly, in answer to a charge of being found drunk on the highway at Porth, said: I respectfully submit and tender to your Worships my sincere apology. J could not actually describe myself as being in an incapable condition (laughter). He was bound oter M the sum of L5 for six months. "You have now," said his Worship, "an opportunity of showing your sin- cerity." "A DROP TOO MUCH." Thomas Rowles expressed his regret for being drunk and disorderly on the 18th inst. at Mardy. The Stipendiary: How long have you been in the district ?-Twenty-six years. How came it you got so drunk?—Had a drop too much. That is generally the case (laughter). The prescription is to take a little less. He was ordered to pay the costs. I IRISH HUMOUR. Another son of Erin, named John Scanlon, got drunk and disorderly on the 2nd inst. at Treliafod. The consta ble's evidence was that he saw him staggering about at 12 p.m. on Monday, the 2nd inst. Defendant refused to give his name and became abusive. Amidst laughter defendant asked wit- ness What right had you to. interfere with iiie? The Stipendiary You are an excellent cross-examiner. Defendant: I had two drinks. The Stipendiary AY ere they lung ones -beer-stout; you never mis it? Defendant (emphatically): No. never, never, sir (laughter). The officer says to me, "Hey there," and I says, "Hallo, what's wanting? (Loud laughter). Ho was told to pay the costs, and advised to be a little more careful. ALSO RAN. John Thomas, Ynyshir, was fined 20s., or fourteen days, for being drunk and disorderly at 11.30 p.m. on the 6tli inst. AYm. Sayce, Trehafod, on the 8th inst., was seen by a constable in a drunken state. He said he had been drinking in the house, and was going to the Farmer's Arms to get more. He was fined 10s. AYm. AYilliams, Ferndale, was bound over for being- drunk on the 8th inst. Thomas Money, from Trehafod, was fined 10s. for being drunk and disorderly on the 7th inst. John Gimlett; Blaenlleehau, for a similar offence on the 6th inst., was fined 10s. WILL HE DO IT? When John Mathias, Blaenlleehau, emerged from the Radical Club on the 6th inst. his condition was such as to draw the attention of P.S. Richards, who in evidence said he followed defendant, and saw him enter another public-house. Knowing his condition, he (witness) entered, and drew the attention of the barman to him. Defendant admitted he was in a very drunken state. The Stipendiary You are bringing the club into trouble, and you might have got the licensee of the hotel into trouble. He was placed on probation, bound over for six months, and a condition was made that he should not enter a public-house or club during that period. A WO-ITAN9 TONGUE. I A respectably-dressed woman, named Mary Ann Davies, was fined 20s., or four- teen days, for using indecent language at Trehafod on the 23rd ult. ACTOR FINED FOR ASSAULTING CINEMA MANAGER. An actor, named Henry Jones, whose stage name is Mezeppa, was summoned by Frederick Hughes, manager of the Cinema, Pontygwaith, for assault. Mr. Horatio Phillips appeared for com- plainant. and in opening said some dis- agreement had arisen between them over wages, and defendant struck him in the mouth, causing blood to lfow. Complainant said defendant was en- gaged to appear at the Cinema the week ending December 27tli. About 10.30 p.m. on Saturday night, December 27th, he came to the office for his salary. There was a dispute as to the amount, and defendant struck him. P.C. Brown said he was on duty at the Cinema, and at 10.30 was called into the manager's office. AYhen he entered, Mr. Hughes was standing in the corner, with his nose bleeding. Mr. Mezeppa, who was also in the office, said: I am awfully sorry, I had no intention of making it bleed; it was an accident." Defendant said the dispute arose be- cause he refused to give a performance on Christmas Day. A portion of his wages (amounting to £ 8) was deducted. Mr. Hughes placed £ 6 13s. 6d. on the desk, and asked him to sign the receipt. He signed it, and was about to include the words" On account," when complainant rushed for the money and the receipt, and received the blow in some manner. Cross-examined by Mr. Phillips, defen- dant said he had known the manager, Mr. Alexander, prior t-o the appointment of Mr. Hughes, for fourteen years, but had not arranged with Mr. Alexander to make it as hot as possible for Mr. Hughes the week lie was there. Mr. Phillips: AYhy did you refuse to appear on Christmas night?—Because I regard it as a Sabbath Day. Didn't you go into the office that night with the intention of doing something to Mr. Hughes?—No. You admit his nose was bleeding?—I must have struck him with the back of my hand. You never told the constable there had been a scuflfe for the money?—Yes, I did. Mr. Hughes (recalled) said it was a deliberate blow. He also said that defen- dant had announced to the audience early in the week he would appear on Christ- mas night. A fine of costs, was im- posed. Second Court. Before Messrs. Thomas Griffiths (in the chair) and D. Thomas. NOISY STREET HAWKERS. William Price, James Elves, and R. J. Lewis, newspaper boys, of Tylorstown, were each fined 10s. for shouting papers in the street on the previous Saturday. DEFENDANT'S FALSE STATEMENT. I David Griffiths, of Tylorstown, was sum- moned for an offence at Tylorstown on the 6th inst., in East Road. Defendant denied the charge, but after hearing the evidence of P.C. 42, the Bench enquired if the defendant had ever been summoned before. Defendant said he had not. The Chairman asked him why he had made such a false statement, as they had a paper which showed he had been pre- sent three times last year. Mr. Thomas told defendant he was a liar, and that the next time he was sum- moned he had better make up his mind to tell the truth. Defendant was fined 15s. STREET OFFENCE. ) Nathaniel Thomas, Blaenlleehau, was fined 10s. and 8s. costs for a street offence on the 6th inst.

The expressions were such that defendant was ordered to pay £ 1 and 8s. costs. A WOMAN'S LANGUAGE. N lai- d y, so far for- Mary Ann Griffith^, Mardy, so far for- got herself on the night of the 7th inst. that she went up to a police constable and used very bad language to him. Mr. Thomas, on being told the kind of language used, remarked that if mothers in their homes used such words, it was no wonder some of the children went wrong. The Chairman, in imposing a fine of 7EI, expressed his opinion that the defen- dant's language was shockingly bad. WITHIN HEARING. I Henry Jenkins, Blaenllechau, made use of bad language within the hearing of a constable on the 2nd inst., also that of some women passing by. For this indiscretion he had to pay £ 1 and 8s. costs. "PRIVATE CONVERSATION." Albert AYilkins, Trehafod, who appeared in a police court case recently, was sum- moned for using bad language. Defendant explained that he had started from home to go and have a "private conversation" with a man named AAebber, who had given evidence against him. Defendant admitted he used all the words lie was said to have used except one. Evidence was given as to the two men being the centre of attraction of a large crowd on the mountain road, and defen- dant was shouting and making use of very bad language. About an hour before this he had been turned out of the Yaughan's Arms, and was on his way back again to the same house. Defendant was in a very excited state. Mr. Thomas advised defendant to con- trol his temper better in the future. A fine of 15s. was imposed. NEIGHBOURLY LOVE. I Beatrice Wiltshire, Tylorstown, was summoned for using bad language to. wards a neighbour, Miss Hannah Jones. It appeared that through some dis- agreement between Wiltshire's husband and Jones' brother, defendant went to Jones' lodgings and used very bad and offensive language between 11 and 12 at night on the 7th inst. Defendant stated that Miss Jones and her brother insulted her, but this charge was stouth, denied. Mr. Thomas told defendant her tongue was a great deal too long, and no doubt that had got her into trouble. The Chairman lectured defendant on the evils of an uncurbed tongue and the habit of speaking in the heat of temper, and concluded by binding defendant over in the sum of tIO to, be of good behaviour for six months, ordering her also to pay 12s. 6d. costs. On hearing this the defendant said she had not a penny. TOBACCO HABIT WITH GIRLS. I Dominic Pessione, Trehafod, refresh ment-house keeper, was fined E2 for sell- ing cigarettes to Ethel John, apparently under 1G years of age, in contravention of the Children's Act, on the 8th inst.
