WEDNESDAY. The Court assembled at eleven o'clock. The only magistrates present were Mr R. Meredyth Richards, Caerynwch, chairman; Lewis Williams, Esq., Vronwnion and John E. Parry, Esq., Glynn Hall. After the usual proclamation had been read, and the Grand Jury sworn, The CHAIRMAN said that he was glad to inform them that they had no business whatever to transact, as he found himself presented with a blank calendar. He would only call their attention to one subject, and the steps which bad been taken in this county with regard to the suppression of vagrancy. It was known that strict orders had been given by the magistrates some six months ago to the police, to apprehend every tramp found begging and it was to the effectual way in which that order had been carried out that he attributed the comparative emptiness of their gaol at the present time. True it was otherwise for a short period, but they were now reaping the benefit. It was sufficiently proved that eight if not nine of every ten of the tramps in the country did not care to lead an honest life, nor did they even attempt to do so. They lived by stealing and pilfering. Crime, as far as it regard- ed the rural population of this county, and indeed all other counties in Wales, was very low indeed; and they all knew that nearly all the crimes committed were done by system- atic tramps or strangers to their country. The magistrates were therefore decided unon carrying out the provisions. soliciting alms at his door, or pretending to earn his living by selling pins, tapes, and other small wares, unless he had a hawker's licence, would put him.in the custody of the police, or in rural places, where no police was near, in that of the parish constables. By doing so, they would soon clear this county of them. He was glad that the neighbouring counties of Denbigh and Flint were willing to co-operate in the matter. He hoped the other counties would soon follow. It had been decided yesterday that placards should be printed, and put up by the police near every road at the entrance to the county, warning all tramps to keep away from this county, as otherwise they would be apprehended and proceeded against. By carry- ing on this system effectually for a short time he hoped soon to clear the county of them, if not to banish them entirely out of North Wales. After thanking the jury for their attendance, the chairman discharged them. Attorneys in court: Messrs D. Pug-h, Edward Walker, and W. R. Davies, Dolgelley W. Williams, Bala Robt. Jones, Portmadoc and E. Breese, clerk of the peace.
