A REGULAR PEST." CATTLE STEALING AT RESOLVEN At Glamorgan Quarter Sessions at Swansea on Wednesday (before Judtre Gwilym Williams), David Moses t55), labourer Thomas Watkins (24), fireman; and Thomas Mullins (35), labourer, were indicted for stealing four heifers, worth X40, the property of John Rees, at Re- solven on October 7tb. Mr Redmond Davies prosecuted. Mr Rhys Williams defended Moses and Mi Ivor Bowon appeared for the others. The cattle were put to graze on Hendreowen moun- tain. They were missed, and subsequently found in a iield at Bryncoch, where the three prisoners had put them. Thomas Edwards, butcher, of Hi twain, said that when returning home from Glynneath he met the cattle with Moses. who offered them to him for sale, explaining that he made his living by driving cattle from place to place and selling them. William Bowen, butcher, of Bryncooh, said the three men came to his house with the cattle and asked permission to put them in one of his fields for the night, as they were on their way to Swan- sea Fair from Aberdare. The following morning they were claimed by prosecutor's son. The prisoners were arrested, and in answer to the charge Moses said," I am guilty these other two men are free." Mullins said he and Watkins were engaged by Moses at Cardiff to drive cattle, were taken by train to Bridgend, then to Hendre- owen mountain, where the cattle were found and driven to Bryncoch. The prisoner Moses said some days previously he met a man he had known for years namecT Davies, whose address he was not aware ot, and he took him to a mountain at Glyncorrwg and showed him seven beasts, sheep, and ponies. The cattle he told him to take to Swansea Fair. He went to Cardiff and engaged the other prisoners to help him. On October 7th they went to the mountain, and seeing only four beasts drove them towards Swansea down the main road to the Neath Valley, He was well-known in the dis- trict, and drove the cattle for 12 miles down the main road in the daytime. What he told the constable was that it was he who drove the cattle from the mountain, and that the other men were free that if there was any blame at all it waa his in taking the wrong cattle. In cross-examination he aaid he had been un- able to find Davies because he had been in gaol ever since. He admitted he had told Mullins he was going to drive eight bullocks, and yet he drove away four heifers in calt. Tho Chairman summed up strongly against Moses. The jury without hesitation acquitted Watkins and Mullins, but fonnd Moses guilty. Mr Rhys Williams asked that Moses should not be sent to penal servitude, as he had a wife and four children who were destitute. The Chairman said the Court could not take such a matter as that into consideration. The prisoner was a regular pest, and had already been convicted several times for sheep stealing, on one occasion receiving penal servitude. Pri- soner's sentence would now be seven years' penal servitude. His Honour hoped some charitable institution would take.ap the case of the wife and children.
