BRECONSHIRE. Violent Altack on a Young Lady. The Michaelmas Quarter Sessions for the County of Brecon were held at the Shire Hall, Brecon, on Tuesday, Mr R. D. Cleasby being in the chair.

Conway Lloyd, Dioas, Brecon andMr Hugh A. Christie, Llangoed Castle. Prison Life. The Chairman, in charging the Grand Jury, said the number of prisoners for trial was rather in excess of the average. There were charges of larceny among the cases, and it would appear that metl committed such offences merely to get into prison, and if this continued to go on to any great extent it would be for the authorities to see whether prison life should not be made more severe. New Justice. Mr Hugh Archibald Christie, of Llangoed Castle, qualified as a county justice. Trial of Prisoners. Indecent Assault. John Riley (29), tailor, pleaded guilty to an in- dictment charging him with committing an inde- cent assault upon a young lady (Kachel Ellis) on the highway near Glanwye, Builth Wells, on the 15th inst.

Vaughan, solicitor, Builth (who appeared for the prosecution) stated in reply to the chairman that prisoner when before the magistrates said he wanted to go to prison.—The Chairman Was the woman in- jured at all ? Mr Vaughan: She was not seriously injured, but the assault was of a violent character. She was knocked about a good deal, bat there was no actual wounding. When the prisoner was arrested he stated he was a native of Wigan, and from inquiries made by the police this was found correct. So far as the police know prisoner has never been previously convicted, neither is there anything known to his prajudice.-The Chair- man It is a serious offence, Riley. Yon will be committed to prison with hard labour for l2 calendar months. Army Reservist in Trouble.
