Ton-Pentre I Police Court. Monday.—Before Mr. T. P. Jenkins (chairman). Aldermen E. H. Davies and Richard Lewis. Messrs. David Thomas .and W. T. Jones. SISTER AS RECEIVER. I Beatrice Jones (11), Llwynypia, was charged with stealing coal, the property of the Glamorgan Coal Co., and her sister with receiving the coal, knowing it to have been stolen. P.S. Savage (oolliery constable) proved the case, and said Beatrice had been pre- viously cautioned by him and coal taken from her. The Chairman said it was a bad thing to encourage theft of the kind amongst little girls. Beatrice was fined 5s. and her sister 10s. UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES." John Glasbury, a miner employed at the Glamorgan Colliery. Lhvynypia (Cam- brian Coal Combine), was charged hI P.S. Savage with stealing a lump of coal from A tram on the surface in leaving work. Observing something bulky under his coat, the sergeant questioned Glasbury, and the latter, when charged with the theft, replied^ "Under, the circumstances at home, that is the reason I took it." P.S. Savage now informed the Bench that there had been numerous complaints of late of coal stealing from trams. The Chairman (Mr. David Thomas) asked Glasbury what excuse could he find for being a thief. Defendant replied that he had an order in the office for coal, but it had not been -delivered. A fine of 20s. was imposed. ABUSING A PRIVILEGE. I Daniel Martin and Hy. Hooper, col- liers, were changed with stealing blocks of firewood, value Id. each, the property of the Glamorgan Coal Co. P.S. Savage explained that since the Cambrian Combine had taken over the Glamorgan Collieries, the workmen were only allowed the privilege of taking fire- wood home on Tuesdays and Fridays, but respite the fact that notices to this effect appeared on the pit-top, numbers of work- men abused the privilege by taking fire- wood on the prohibited days. Repeated warnings having been given to no effect, the management had been compelled to prosecute, as it was felt that good timber was being. cut when the men wanted to take timber home. Witness saw defen- dants leaving the colliery yard with the wood under their coats, and accosting Martin he said, "You know, Martin it is not firewood day. Upon being -cautioned, defendant replied: "I kave nothing to say." P.S. Savage said he had taken blocks of firewood from about 40 workmen lately on the wrong days. Mr. David Thomas, remarking upon the abuse of a kindness, said the offenders would try to manage the collieries if they -could! It was evident that defendants did not know how to appreciate a custom and a kindness. They would be fined 15s. -each. MAN'S FOULEST CONDITION. Several Rhondda colliers were sum- moned for using obscene language, and were severely taken to task by the Chair- man (Mr. David Thomas), who stated I that it was the foulest condition a man i could be in. Proving the case against Dennis Ben- nett, Pent re, P.C. Jones said he was dis- turbing the whole neighbourhood with his coarse language on Saturday night. ■ Mr. D. Thomas: Bennett. you are fined I £1. or fourteen days with hard labour/: for using such filthy expressions. j To David Llewellyn and Wm. Evans, I .-two respectably-dressed young colliers from Pentre. who were charged with a similar offence, M<r. D. Thomas observed sharply: "Have you got mothers and sisters: how would you like them to hear language of the kind written on this rpaper? I Defendants were fined 10s. eacli. For using bad language towards his wife, Wm. Marsh, Pentre, was fined 15s. HIS FIRST GAME. I David Edwards, Wm. Jenkins, T. Gray and Thos. Cook, of Gilfacn Goch, were summoned for gaming with cards on Sun- day in Bridget Row, Gilfach Goch. P.C. Jenkins and other officers kept watch for half-an-hour, and pouncing upon defendants while they were play- ing four stood and two ran away. Cook, a middle-aged man, now pleaded that it was his first game. Mr. David Thomas: Your life has not been straight. Do try and ptill up; you are old enough to be their father. Fines ranging from 91 to 25s. were imposed. COMPLIMENT TO SOLICITOR. I Thomas Davies. manager of the Bailey's Hotel, Pentre, formerly a butcher was summoned in respect of non-delivery of a license t-o the police on the removal of a consignment of pigs from Builth. Mr. J. Watkin Jones, solicitor, Pentre, defended. Evidence was given to. the effect that licenses were taken out at Builth autho- rising the removal of the pigs from the market to Ystrad, but Vie license had not been delivered to the police in accord- ance with the requirements of the Statute. Mr. Watkin Jones argued for the defence that, seeing that the pigs were to be paid for according ttt dead weight, the wholesale dealer had no "authority to act as agent to the. consignee in taking out tke license. Mr. D. Thomas (chairman) during the hearing of the case said Mr. Watkin Jones was raking up the corners of the law. The Bench were not going to com- pete with him on the question of law but fortunately they had their Clerk to advise them (laughter). In fining Mr. Davies Is. in respect of each pig, amounting to 7s., Mr. Thomas remarked favourably upon the defence set up by Mr. Watkin Jones. MOTOR CYCLIST FINED. I Charles Wilden late manager of the Empire Theatre, Tonypandy, was sum- moned for riding a motor cycle without a light. Defendant explained that the light in the acetylene lamps failed, and the pas- senger in the side car held the side car light in the middle, the light, of course, in comparison being dim. P.C. Wilcox Jadmitted that there was a dim light on the side car, but denied that the light was in the place described by defendant. Wilden said he could give convincing proof Mr. David Thomas (chairman): Why don't you say you are sorry and finish with it? Inspector Salter put in a previous con- viction for riding to the danger of the public. Defendant: Yes, that is the man who had me before (pointing to P.C. Wilcox), and he said then. Before long I will have you here again." Mr. Thomas: He is paid for looking after people doing wrong. You are fined 15s. Next case, please. MISCELLANEOUS. Charles Jones. Pontypridd, was fined 20s. for obstruction. John Hobbs. Treherbert, was fined 25s. for committing a breach of the peace, P.S. Rhys Davies stating that he found defendant, stripped to the waist, in Mount Libanus Street, fighting with another man. Joseph Tapper, for leaving his horse and cart unattended at Pentre, had to pay J.Us.

The deceased tipped over a saucepan containing hot soup, scalding her side and arm. The Coroner said it was a simple accident and of a painful nature. A verdict of Accidental death" was returned.

Picture-ttps (Liverpool). Ltd.. Picturedrome (Glasgow), Ltd.. and Loughborough Picture Play- house, Ltd.. applied for his order of dis- charge. Mr. W. P. Bowyer (Official Receiver) J eported that the debtor had previously failed in 1903 as a wicker work manufac- turer in Hatton Gardens, when 10 l-7d. in the £ was paid and the discharge was suspended for two years. Having travelled for some years in connection with a busi- ness belonging to his wife, he took offices at Craven Street, Kingsway. and in March, 1910, formed the Entertainment and Development Syndicate. Ltd., which promoted the companies already referred to, of which only two were successful. As | managing director of the companies he guaranteed liabilities to the amount of £5,414 in connection with them. He also lost money over a theatre at Great 1 Yarmouth. He now owed £ 16,835, and his assets, valued at £ 4,377, had produced L13. and that only a further E250 was likely to be received He attributed his insolvency to his liability on the above-mentioned guarantees, and his having made loans to various companies with which he had been connected. The Official Receiver submitted that it had practically been brought about by rash and hazardous speculation. The offences alleged were in- sufficiency of assets ana books, rash and hazardous speculation, a.nd the previous bankruptcy. Mr. Tindal Davies, on behalf of the debtor, asked that the discharge should be granted subject for £2030, £ 50 to be paid in cash and the balance by instal- ments guaranteed by the wife.
