A MIDNIGHT SCENE AT BRIDGEND. At the Bridgend Police Court on Satnrday-before Messrs R. W. Llewellyn (chairman), J. 1. D. Nicholl, Wm Howells, and Wm Llewellyn-John Richards, labourer, Bridgend, was charged with assaulting Alice, wife of Wm Edmunds, Nolton- street. It appeared from complainant's evidence that on Saturday night between 11 and 12 complainant was sending her mother home, when defendant's wife wanted to fight with her. Then John Richards spoke to complainant and < knocked her teeth down her throat,' and afterwards knocked her down. When down she had a kick on her side. Her mouth bled, and she became unconscious on the ground. Annie Jones, sister-in-law of the complainant, bore out her evidence. She did not, however see her fall. In reply to the magistratss, witness could not say whether defendant was drunk or sober Inspector Row said he was by the spot nanud on Saturday night. The place was in a ferment. Mrs Fletcher came out of her house and began to shout and threaten. Richards came back. Then Alice Edmunds made use of shameful language. Witness quieted them for a time, and then Alice came out and repeated her shameful language. John appeared more sober than the rest. All appeared muddled with drink, but they were not drunk. Police-Sergeant Lewis, who was in company with Inspector Row, said when complainant came to the Police-station she appeared to have been drinking heavily. Her lips were swollen and bleeding and she appeared to have been roughly handled"' She complained of a tooth having been knocked out. Witness saw no vacancy. For the defence, defendant alleged that he SJWA^ Mrs Richards throw Walter's wife down. Tie there was a row, and Alice made use of very bad language. He saw Walter take Alice from his wife He didn't see any bleeding. Cross-examined by Complainant: You challenged all the rest of them to fight. 0 The charge against John Richards was dis- missed.

CRICKET. • With spirits still elated by their victory over the combined hosts of the Welsh metropolis, Bridgend no doubt entered the field against Morriston on Saturday with a confidence that had in it the element of jubilance. And it was only natural that they should; for when an in- ferior team overcomes a superior team, the said inferior team is prone to take unto itself the dignity that showeth itself in physiognomical flashiuess. The surrounding conditions" therefore pre- saged another triumph for Bridgend on Satur- day, and many there were who, without enen having seen visions or dreamed dreams yet were bold enough to indulge in prognostications highly iavourable to the town of their birth — or adoption. But that only shows the superabundance of truth that lay hid in the adage that bids you never to prophesy unless you knew." That's a paradoxical adage, bv the bye, for you can hardly foretell the things of the future unless you are omniscient, and, accordingly, the condition "unless you know" assumes the possession by man of omniscience which is im- possible, as Euclid would say. Some did prophesy on Saturday, in spite of the fact that they didn't know." True they got to know in course of time, but the know- ledge, when it did inoculate itself in their pro- phetic minds, wasn't exactly to their liking. It didn t harmonise with their internal feelings, as was evident from the outward version of their inner state. Morriston had won by 4 runs! there was wailing, there was weeping, there was gnashing of teeth It was such a win as produces vexa- tion of spirits. If a team is beaten in a decisive fashion, why even the friends of the beaten team are disposed to assert their manly inde- pendence and cheer the winners. But to be beaten by 4 runs enough to hurl a man to C, maddening despair. Stands Scotland where it did ? asked the poet. Stands Bridgend where it did, asked the prose writer (if you put the accent on the first, syllable of Bridgend you might substitute poet for prose writer). Yes it does-it still stands i on the Ogmore. But from a cricket point of view stands it where it did ? well, no and Y08- no, because it has had a licking and yes because the licking was a moral victory. If it was a moral victory for Bridgend, then collateral with that is the fact that it was an immoral victory for Morriston. But it wasn't scarcely. We are getting logically nebulous. Let us emerge into the open, and face facts in the face. It is a fact that Bridgend were defeated by 3 runs. It is also a fact that the two last men were run out. Why ? through sheer want of judgment. The ball outran the batsmen, and the batsmen's zeal outran their discretion. It was a case of over-hastiness (and hastiness engenders recklessness) to hit off the few runs that Wtre necessary to obtain victory. But it may be a salutary lesson to them. Remember ye therefore that want of judgment is synonymous with carelessness, that careless- ness produceth recklessness, that recklessness produceth defeat and no runs, and that defeat produceth vexation of spirit. Morriston went in first, Hordley and W. Williams sharing the bowling. With the score 1 at five, Arnold was stumped. Cummins equalised his advent with a well-timed stroke to the boundary, but with the score at 15 lost his partner Martin, who succumbed to one of Williams' 'breaks.' Only three more runs were added before Cummins was caught. Then came a better stand by Matthews and Edwards, the former of whom played the bowling with ease. The score mounted up to 34 when Edwards was bowled. The next wicket fell at 45, and from then each wicket contributed a small share till at last the score reached GT. Following the usual order Bridgend went in. T. D. Schofield and W. Williams, who faced the bowling of Jenkins and Jones. The two first overs proved maidens, and then in his next over and after Williams had scored a single, Scho- field was cleaned bowled by Jenkins. W. E. Lewis followed on with the scoro at 5. Williams after making a good leg hit for 3 was bowled 0 Z5 by Jones, and with the score stationary, Nicholl had his stumps upset by the same bowler. With three good batsmen dismissed for 5, things looked desperate for the home- sters. Dr. Moynan joined Lewis, who was playing a fine defensive game, and the score was taken to 14 before the former was cleaned bowled for 1. Then with W. A. Williams as Lewis's partner the game assumed a different complexion for Bridgend, and the score was taken to 30 before a separation was effected. Harry Lewis was next batsman. W. E. Lewis was dismissed at 37. Then began the "runnings out" craze, which was responsible for the dismissal of Maskell at 48, M. Davis at 57, and Harry Lewis at 6i., With the visitors' score "so near and yet so far," the excitement towards the finish was great. Only 4 runs were wanted to win when Hordley went in, and with Harry Lewis .batting in free and confident style and thoroughly set, it looked as if the homesters would pull off the match. The first ball he re- ceived he placed neatly to leg, and Harry Lewis forgetting presumably that there was a smart fielder there, called him, and was easily run out. So the game ended. The two batsmen who showed best form during the day were undeniably W. E. Lewis for Bridgend, and D. Matthews for Morriston W. Williams took 6 wickets at a cost of 34 runs and Hordley 2 wickets for 11 runs. Harry ry Lewis was the top scorer on both sides. Opening his innings with one or two lucky strokes, he afterwards played sterling cricket, and was almost the means of saving his side from defeat. W. H. Williams, who is possessed of a very peculiar form," made some good hits in his 11. Appended is the scores :— MORRISTON.
