QUARTER SESSIONS. The Responsibilities of Magis- trates. It was an interesting coincidence of the Summer Quarter Sessions for Breconshire, held on Tuesday at Brecon, that whilst there were no prisoners for trial, most of the recently appointed magistrates attended to take the oaths of allegiance and impartiality. The magistrates present including those newly appointed) were the Hon R C Devereux (chairman), Mr J E Moore-Gwyn, Mr E Butler, Capt H Graystone, Mr A A Mitchell, Mr W F Parry deWinton, Mr Owen Price. Commander Alec Wilson, R.X., Messrs M T Davies, J W Jones, D P Hopkins. D J Davies. Jno. Harris, Jno. Morris, W H 0 Thomas, Idris Davies, J E Williams. T Williams (Ystradgynlais), T E James, Jos. Price, J L Davies. T P Jones, J Cater, Jno. Morgan. H T Price. B Davies, I Thomas, and C W Hughes. The Chairman remarked thai he felt he ought in the name of the senior justices to extend to the new magistrates a hearty welcome, whilst congratulating them on the honourable appoiutment which had been con- ferred upon them and congratulating the Court on the great accession of strength it had r 9 thereby received. As a member of the Advisory Committee, he felt himself at liberty to say that the names of the new justices were submitted to the Lord Chancellor because their activity and impartiality in district and county matters seemed to guarantee an equally faithful discharge of magisterial duties. He would like to say-and this applieJf not only to the new magistrates, but also to some of the old—that the office was uot merely an honorary one, but entailed certain responsibilities. Petty sessions for the ensuing twelve months were fixed at the begin- ning of each year, and there was no excuse for not knowing when they were a bout "to occur. L, y And certainly there was no excuse for treating them as an engagement only to be kept when there was nothing better to do. Now that an adequate addition had been made to the strength of each petty sessional division that seemed to require it. he hoped they would have no further complaints of difficulties in obtaining sufficient magistrates to form a bench. RATING APPEALS. Two appeals by William Rees Evans against poor rate -assessments made by the Merthyr Union Assessment Committee in respect of Blaenanthir and Gellytarw, in the parish of Pencleryn. were settled by agreement. Mr Washington Bowen, for the respondents, shied that the agreed terms were :—Gellitarw— Gross assessment on land reduced from £ 79 10s. to £ 08 15s.; ratable reduced from f75 10s. to £CG 10s.; gross assessment on buildings remaining at £ 11 5s. and ratable at £ 9.' Blaenanthir—Gross assessment on land reduced from £ 27 2s. to J;23 ratable reduced from £ 25 15s. to JE21 15s.; no buildings. The respondents would also pay 10 gs. costs and 12s. (¡d. expenses. Mr \Y.1. Jones (Messrs Powell, Hughes and Jones, Brynmawr), appearing for the Brynmawr Gas. Company in an appeal against an assess- ment of gas mains at Brynmawr made by the Crickhowell Union Assessment Committee, ap- plied for a respite to the October Sessions, the respondents having asked for an adjournment owing to being unable to get their valuer's report in time. T. Yaughan, Crickhowell, for the re- spondents, said this was entirely a matter of expert advice, and when the experts met they might be able to make a suggestion acceptable to both parties. The respite was ordered.
