A bergele Police Court. LL ANFAIRTALHAIARN RATES. Mr. Giles Griffith presided over this Court on Saturday, when the following Justices were pre- sent :—Messrs Edward Williams, W. Humb- lev and J. T. Millwaard; together with the Clerk (Mr. E. A. Crabbe) and Superintendent Beresford DRUNK IN CHARGE OF A HORSE. Owen Hughes, of Bryn-yr-Aur, Llanfairtal- haiarn, pleaded guilty to being drunk in charge of a hoarse and trap on the 15th of last month 'n Abergele. P.C. William Richards, who proved the case, stated that the defendant was so drunk that 11\ had to have the animal and trap taken from him and put into safety. A fine of 5s. and costs, was imposed. TRESPASSING IN PURSUIT OF GAME. Thomas John Powell, Bodchwil, Llanfairtal- haiarn, was summoned by. David Schofield, gamekeeper in the employ of Mr. Audley Thomas, for trespassing on the 16th November at Ty Canol, Llanfairtalhaiarn, which land is in the occupation of Mr. Edward Jones. Mr. Joseph Lloyd, Rhyl, appealed to prose- cute, and the defendant pleaded guilty, and at the same time admitted that he had gone after a pheasant which he had shot. The Bench fined the defendant. 10s. and costs, and the Chairman, addressing him, said We have taken a lenient view of the case. A young fellow like you ought to know better. I under- stand your parents are very respectable, and it you come here again you will be severely dealt with." PECULIAR RATE CASES FROM LLANFAIRTALHAIARN. Joseph Roberts, Cynant Ganol, Llanfairtal- haiarn, was summoned for non-payment of 9s. 7d. special expenses rate. Mr. W. Griffith, the late Assistant Overseer's father, said that he was carrying on the work since the death of his son, and he produced the rate made in February Last, by which the defend- ant was rated at 9s. 7d,. for special expenses. The Clerk enquired if the rate had been duiy demanded. Mr. Griffith replied that he believed it had, but his son, who was dead, had done that work. The Clerk I am afraid, unless you can prove that, you cannot proceed. Mr. Griffith: I have asked him personally for tlie money, and' I have written him a private letter by order of the Overseers but he bays he will not pay. The Clerk then asked the defendant if he ad- mitted having had the demand note, and the defendant said he did admit, but he did not pay as he did not know what the rate was for. There was also a poor rate. Mr. Griffith He has paid the poor rate, but not the other. He paid it on October 3rd, but should have paid it before September 30th. He aid he would not pay this, and for us to take proceedings Defendant: What is the rate for ? Mr. Griffith: I cannot say. It is the amount asked, for by the Overseers for special expenses, and I cannot say what the particulars are. Defendant: I had the rate paper, but I don't know what the rate is for. The Clerk That does not matter. Defendant: But no rate collector has called for tlie rate for five or six years. Before deciding the case, the Bench decided to hear other similar cases. John Roberts, Thomas Roberts, and Jane Ro- berts, Bedwyn Isa', Llanfair, were the next de- fendants dealt with, and the former said he re- presented\ all parties, and would admit that be had a demand note but it was sent by poai. He wanted to know whether it was right to send the demandl note by post, instead of the rate collector calling, and whether it was right that the rate should be collected by children, as was done in Llanfair. The Chairman There is no point in that. The Clerk It is not a matter for the Bench. Defendant: Have I ever refused to pay the rate ? Mr. Griffith: I asked you personally for it in the shop, and afterwards I sent you a private letter but I had no necessity to do so.. I sent you a letter warning you that you would be summoned, but you aid not reply to it. Defendant: When did you send the letter? lt. Griffith About two weeks ago. Defendant: I did not have the letter. Mr. Griffith I cannot help that. I did not register it; but I know it was sent. The Chairman He acknowledges having had the demand note, and that is sufficient. Defendant: But there is a mistake in the de- mand note. I am charged with 5s. arrears, and I have all my receipts here. Mr. GrifRth There are no arrears. The figures are put against the word arrears instead, of by the buildings and land. The Chairman, looked at the demand note and confirmed what Mr. Griffith had said. He also pointed out that the defendants that day had made a point that they did not know what the rate was for, whereas on the clerr-andi notes the particulars of the rate were given. The, Bench had decided to make an order for payment of the rates .nd costs against each defendant. The Clerk (to Mr. John Roberts) Will you pay now and save 2S. for the distress warrant? Defendant: 1 have never refused to pay the rates. I will pay those, and I would have paid before if the collector had explained matters. The Clerk The magistrates have nothing to do with that. Will you pay to-day? Defendant: I will pay the rates. Mr. Griffith He says all along he will pay the rates, but I want the costs as well. The Clerk Will you pay 7s. costs in each case as well as the rates, or will you pay on the distress warrant, which will cost you 2s. more. If you pay to-day you will save 2s. The defendants decided to pay.
