Carmarthenshire Ouarter Sessions
Carmarthenshire Ouarter Sessions. The Carmarthenshire Quarter Sessions were held at the Guildhall. Carmarthen, on Friday before Mr E. Mil ties Jones (vice-chairman). Lord Dynevor, Sili- James Hills-Johnes, Mr Charles Lloyd, Mr H. E. G. Philipps, Mr John Lewis (-Mayor of Carmarthen), Mr T. E. Brig- stocke. Mr B. Evans, Mr D. Will iams. Mr Pryse Rice, Mr H. E. Bladgon-R ichards. Mr W. Hopkins. Mr T. Roberts, Mr J. Picton, Dr Owen Williams and Mr T. Griffiths. A DISAPPEARING DEFENDANT. The Clerk of the Peace (Mr J. W. Nicholas) referred to the case against the defendant Powell, who is charged with stealing a horse at Llanellv. The defendant had not ap- peared, and the case had been adjourned from one court to another. The court might direct that the indictment lie placed on the file in- stead of hav ing it printed in the calendar eieli time. The Chairman a;,d that they could do that. The indictment could be taken off the file should the occasion arise. It was decided to place the indictment on the file. DOG EXEMPTIONS. Mr Mervvn Peel moved that the Court con- sider the matter of granting exemptions for dogs with the view if possible of securing uni- formity of action in the various petty ses- sional devisions. Mr Peel said that he had brought this matter forward at the request of the Llandilo Bench. They had in Llandilo found great difficulty in deciding who were entitled to exemption certificates for dogs and who were not. The question as to what is a farmer is a very difficult one. Each petty- sessional division either goes on its own rules or decides each case on its own merits with- out any rule at all. This seems to b? the case very much in Wales. From inquiries which had been made it seemed that there were no rules for anybody's guidance. In some cases therefore the Act is a dead letter. He was not at all anxious that Quarter Sessions should make a rule which should be binding on every petty sessional division in the county. He believed that Quarter Sessions had no power to make any such rule. All that he asked was that they should attempt to make some rule which might help some of tllest- petty sessional divisions who are in difficulties. He believed that the Carmarthen Borough Bench had a rule of their own. He believed the Clerk had received a. letter on the subject. The Clerk read a letter from Mr Du dioy Williams-Drummond on the subject. In this letter Mr Drummond said that he saw no ob- jection to a committee going into the ques- tion and making suggestions. The various benches must be allowed full freedom of deci- sions in respect of the merits of each indi- ;<1'1n.l <0 Lord Dynevor said that he would be very glad to know what was the rule in the Boio of Carmarthen. Mr John Lewis (Mayor) said that they had no rule at all in the Borough of Carmarthen. They had a butcher who app' ed fOme time ago for an exemption. He rented a good deal of land, but he did not live on a tarm and they refused the application. Mr Mervvn l'eel said that there was so much dffierence of practice that if you in one division you would g. t an exemption, and if you applied in the other you would not. Mr Picton said that t!uy had had a good deal of difference of opinion over the matter. A LInn labourer who kept two cows applied for an exemption. There were even magis- trates on the bench. Had there been only six the decision would have been different. Is a labourer who keeps a few cows and sheep a farmer? Is a clergyman who keeps a cow or two a farmer? Mr Richards moved that they have a small committee to consider the matter. Mr B. Evans said that the Court had no power. Each Bench could deal with cases on their own merits. The original motion was carried by a majo- rity, and the following committee was ap- pointed: The Chairman, the Vice-Chairman. Lord Dynevor. Mr C. P. Leu .s. Mr H. J. Thomas. Mr A. E. DuBuisson, ar.d Mr Chas. Llovd. JUROR'S COMPLAL\T. The Foreman of the Grand Jury said lie had be?n asked hy some jurymen to express re- grot that so many men had been summoned to serve on the jury at th's time, especially as labour was so scarce. The Chairman: Some time ago 1 wanted a second jury, and could not get it. so you w ill see there are difficulties. ASSAULT WITH A BOTTLE. John Horrigan (So), labourer. Burry Port, pleaded guilty to maliciously wounding Griffith Pugh Williams, landlord of the Hail- Hotel. Burry Port. on June oth. Mr Mervyn Howell (instructed by Mr Ludford, Llaneliy) appeared to prosecute. Counsel said prisoner caused a disturbance at the Hailwny Hotel, and was requested by the landlord to leave. Subsequently lie re- turned to the house and struck prosecutor a severe blow oil the head with a lemonade bottle. Counsel added that the police had had very great difficulty in dealing with the navvv clases at Burry Port. The Chairman said landlords of public | houses had very d;iiicnlt duties to perform, and it was only right that they should be pro- t-octed when doing their duty. Die assault was a very premeditated one, and prisoner would be sentenced to nine calendar months' hnnl hlbour. FIGHT IX A LODGING HOUSE. John Haves (J4). labourer. Burry Port was charged with iii oils" v wouiuiing Geiole McDonald, andotlier Burry Port workman, on June loth. Mr Mervyn Howell (instructed by Mr Leslie Williams, solicitor. Llanellv) ap- peared for the prosecution. Prosecutor and pr'soner stayed at the Copper Works School lodging house. Burry Poi-t. McDonald stated that when he re- turned to the lodging house about 10 p.m. on vJune 15th Hayes was quarrelling with another \nan. and he went between them. Later on in the bedroom, wit lie1 & told accused to go to bed. whereupon Haye;. seized witness by the enllar and, after a struggle, stabbed him with a pocket knife. Cioss-c xamineJ. prosecutor admitted hitt ng Hayes about a month ago. Pi- Owen Williams said pro-ecutor had a wound one and a hall i cars in length anu an inch deep mer the third rib and about an inch ) from the heart. The wound penetrated the lung. j Prisoner was sentenced to fifteen months' imprisonment with hard labour. FALSE PRETENCES AT LLANDILO FAIR. Hugh Watkins. horse dealer. Sketty, was sentenced to four months' imprisonment, with hard laliour, on a charge of obtaining a mare by false pretences from Frederick Davies, collier, Pnybank Cottage. Fforestfaeh, at Llandilo fair, on June- 21. Mr Mervyn Howell prosecuted, and Mr W. J. W allis-Jones, Car- marthen, defended. The evidence was that accused bought the it animal tor t28 10s. He paid down a deposit of tS, and promised to send the remainder by post next morning. Prosecutor at first re- fused to let the horse go, until accused said that Mr David Watkins, of Swansea, a well- known butcher, was his brother, a statement which was found to be untrue. The money did not arrive. Accused denied that lie said Mr Watkins was his brother, though, as a matter of fact, he had a brother, named David Thomas Wat- kins, who had been a butcher at Swansea. He failed to send the balance of the money to prosecutor, but he fully intended doing so.
