I Walter Elton, farmer, of Huntley, was summoned for not properly keeping a boar register, on June 4th. Mr A Lionel Lane, of Gloucester, ap- peared for the defenae and pleaded guilty. P.C. Davey proved the case. Mr Lane said defendant bad kept pigs for many years and bad never transgressed tbe orders in any way bafoue. Fined 2s. 6d. and costs. CRUELTY TO PIGS. I Walter Elton was also charged by Inspector Skinner, of the S.P.C.A., with cruelty to 48 pigs, at Huntley, on June 12th, by omitting to provide them with sufficient food. Mr A T Gay (G!oucester), appeared for the prosecution aud Mr A Lionel Lane for the defence, and pleaded not guilty. Inspector Skinner, of the N.S P.C.A. of Gloucester, said he went to defendant's farm, on June 12 at 5 p.m. and met defendant, who showed him 31 store pigs. Eight of them were in better condition than the others, and some of them were very small, and though they were four to five months old they appeared as big as pigs about three months old. Soma stores in another place were very poor, and some sows were in poor condition. Of another batch of four stores three were rather poor, and one unable to walk, suffering from rheumatism. A boar and a sow were in fair conditian. He asked defendant what he gave the pigs to eat and he told him about five cwt of meal, sharps and bran per week. He told defendant that was not enough for the pigs. aud he worked It out at about llflbs per pig per week, about l:}lbs per pig per day. They were the worst pigs be bad ever seen in his career. They should have had 15 cwt of meal per week. By Mr Lane: He refused to state who complained about the condition of the pigs. Six sows 18 months old were in poor condition, but not so poor as the small stores. The pigs generally had gradually been get- ting worse owing to insufficient food. They were half-starved. He had no complaint about the boar. There were 48 pigs altogether. He would not believe that 31 of the pigs were 12 to 14 weeks old, be should say they 1 were four to six months old. He thought pigs 12 to lit weeks old should have 61bs of meal per day besides running on grass. P.C. Davey said he went in company with Inspector Skinner and corroborated his evidence. He had not seen any pigs so underfed as these during the last three years. When he saw the defendant on June 4 he made a report to his superior officer (Sergt. Clutterbuck) on the condition of the pigs, but he would not take the responsibility of sending in a report to the John Richard Carter Jones, veterinary surgeon, of Glouceater, said he examined defendant's pigs on June 12. He first saw a pen of 31 pigs, young stores of 3 to 4 months. Six of them were very small. 10 to 14 days old in appearance. Another eight were in a little better condition, half-a-dozen in fair condition and the rest very poor, 80tbiag on them but bones, no belly on them and emaciated. The boar was in fair oondition, a sow in farrow fair, and four barren sows were like greyhounds. Six stores were poor, and of another four three were not in very good condition, and the fourth suffered from rheumatics and could not get up. A sow which was being fattened was in good condition. The pigs had not had enough food and had suffered. He saw two orchards, where the pigs ran, but both were bare of grass. Bv Mr Lane: It would take 15 cwt of meal per week to do the pigs well. Tak- ing tnem all through the 48 they would require 6 to 7Ibs of meal per day, 3lbs would not be enough. If an animal was underfed it must suffer. Defendant then went into the box and said he had kept pigs for 15 years and had been at his present place 11 years. He fed the pigs three times a day. Of the 31 stores five of them, the smallest, were of one farrow, and the sow dried at one month, from which date he fed tnem on an equivalent. He had five acres of oi charding, one an acre, and two of two acres < ach. The pigs had the run of the orchards up to a month ago. From May 1st to June 23rd he purchased a ton of mangolds, and large quantities of meal, sharps and bran, which the pigs had. The pigs were lively and fresh. From May 1st to June 12 he purchased 34cwt of sharps, 11 cwt of bran and 2 cwt of mixed meal. Mr West, veterinary Burgeon, gave evidence and said that he examined the 48 pigs on June 2. and also on June 22, when he found the pigs in a fair condition, and they had sufficient food. Nanthaniel Penson, of Huntley, said he had been a castrator for 40 years. He had attended to 17 young store pigs in May and he considered that the operation had been properly done. John Cockburn, of Huntley, said he visited defendant's place on Saturday last and saw the 48 pigs. They appeared lively and in good condition. Mr Lane, in summing up the case for the defendant, said it was a most extraordinary case. Inspector of the Board of Trade, veter- inary surgeon, and P C Davey had seen the pigs and bad made no report. They had accused him of grossly illtreating the pigs. He did not think that a man in his position who earned his living from the pigs, would illtreat them. The Bench retired and on returning fined defendant 40s and costs. ASSAULT AND OBSCENE LANGUAGE. Thomas Archer, of Culvert-street, Newent, was brought up charged with using obscene language and for assaulting his wife, Janet Archer. Defendant did not appear. P.C. Hamblin said he saw defendant's wife in the street on Saturday, and she told him that Archer would not let her into the house. He went to the house and as soon as defend- ant saw them he. started using the most obscene language. Janet Archer said that about five minutes past seven on Saturday morning last her husband locked her out. He bad beaten her with his fist and also with her boots. She was in her night attire. He threatened to cut her throat, and she went upstairs and jumped through the window and went to her mother's with whom she had stopped ever since. Plaintiff's face and eyes were a mass of black bruises. The Chairman Is the state of your face caused by your husband ? Plaintiff Yes, sir but my back is worse than my face. Joseph Hill gave evidence to the effect that he saw the woman jump through the window on Saturday morning. He was in his bedroom at the time, when he heard a noise which he characterised As though they were hunting a fox out in the street." He had known the family for 40 years, and it was time a stop was put to it. Defendant was fined 10s for using obscene language and was sentenced to two months' hard labour. HIGHWAY OFFENCE. I William Ball and John Rose, engine drivers, were respectively charged with having no communication cord and no one in charge of the rear waggon attached to a traction engine, at Newent. Richard Jones, chauffeur, said he was in a motor car on the Ledbury-road, when he met both defendants. He had considerable difficulty in passing them. He got out of the car and shouted two or three times. A man got out of the middle truck and told the engine-driver, who pulled into the side of the road. That was the first traction, which Ball was driving. He did not notice any communication cord. John Rose said he had a van at the back of the waggons with his wife in and two men, and they pulled the cord and rung the bell when witness came up in the car. He had travelled through a good many counties in England and had never been summoned before, and he had come straight from London without being interfered with. Mr Pullen, farmer, of Newent, said he was riding in a horse and trap along the road. He could not pass owing to the traction being in the middle of the road, neither could he make anyone hear. A motor-ear came along and he got behind the traction and waited for it to pass, which it did with considerable difficulty. He did not notice a cord or any- one at the rear of the waggons. P.C. Hamblin said that from a complaint, made he went along the Led bury road and saw the two tractions mentioned. They each had three trucks and there was no one at the rear of the waggons, but a man walking close by, and there was a man in the middle of the waggons. Both defendants pleaded ignorance of the regulations of the county. The Chairman told them that they. were a bit slack and they should always have a man at the end of the waggons. He fined them Is each and costs 88 6d. RIDING BICYCLE WlfflOUT LIGHT. I Charles Hill, of Dymock, was summoned for riding a bicycle without a light on the night of May 30. P.C. Timms proved the case and said he was on duty at Dymock at 10.30 p.m., when he saw defendant riding without a light. He stopped him and felt the lamp, which was quite cold. Defendant said the reflectors had come off and put the light Otilt, and as he was in a hurry he did not relight it. He was fined 3s 6d and costs. I HORSES STRAYING. Franit Davis and Thomas Messenger, farmers, of Corse, were fined respectively 2s 6d and 13s each for allowing their horses to stray on the highway on June 20. I DRUNKENNESS. Edwyn Selwyn, labourer, of Newent, waa summoned for being drunk on June 5th. Defendant pleaded guilty an d wqfi fined 10s.
I LEDBURY BIARD OF GUARDIANS. The iortnightly meeting mi the Ledbury Board of Guardians was held at the Board-room 8f the Union Workhouse on Tuesday morn- ing. There were present—Mr W L Pritchett (Chairman), who presided, Mr J A Thompson (vice-chairman), Revs A G Jones. A H Knapp, and A E Green-Price, W P P Matthews, Miss Holland, Miss Lake (the new member for Colwali), Alderman J Riley, Messrs L J C Riley, T A Pedingham, A G Bunn, J C Davies, W S Lane, E T Lane, J Parry, T S S Gardner, T W Hulds, J Parry, jnr., H Westou, F Innes, T Calder, H Hodges, H Cowell, J Baughan, and D A G Birchley, with the Clerk (Mr R Homes), the Relieving Officers (Mr A G Smith and Mr T Thompson), and the Master (Mr J Kendrick). I NEW MEMBER WELCOMED. The Chairman entended a hearty welcome to the sew member for Colwall, Miss Lake, and said there might be some diffence of opinion as to what part ladies should take in public matters, but they would agree that the presence of ladies on sueh bodies as Board of Guardians was useful ia every way, and from their experience in the past they would find Miss Lake's services of reata8sistancetothem. 001 wall was an important and rapidly growing parish, and it was egirable for the success of the community that it should be represented on the Board of Guardians and District Councii. He explained himself as quite sure that the inhabitants of Colwali had exercised good judgement in sending Miss Lake to represent them, and he would like to con- gratulate Miss Lake upon enjoying the confi- dence of the inhabitants of the parish. (A p- plause. ) Miss Lake replied and said although she had little knowledge of poor law affairs she was deeply interested in the work and she would do her best for the parish she represented. (Applause.) THE WORKHOUSE. The Master reported the number of inmates in the house last week as 85 against 75 for the corresponding period last year, an increase of 10. During the fortnight 215 tramps were relieved as against 190, an increase of 25. Ha also reported the gifts of flowers from Stanley Hill Chapel, Boabury vegetables from the Mission Sale, Ledbury papers for the inmates from Miss Holland and Miss Martin, Linden House and strawberries, from Mr H S H Bickham, Hilltop. I FINANCE. j Mr Thomson stated that the balance in the bank was £ 2,550 7a lOd. The cheques signed that day were fer £2,855 14s, so that if all the cheques were sent out they would be overdrawn. The Worcester County rate would have to be paid at once. The Clerk said there would be more money paid in that day. POOR LAW CONFERENCE. Mr Thompson proposed that they appoint the Chairman to represent them at the annual Poor- Law Conferenee to be held in London. They would be wise to leave the matter in Mr Pritchett's hands. Mr Bunn seconded, and this was unanimously adopted. APPOINTMENT OF NURSE. I The Chairman reported that the House Com- mittee met last Friday- and weut through the applications for the position of nurse aud assistant matron rendered vacant by the resigna- tion of Nurse Hall. The Committee selected two to appear before the Board for the purposes of interview that day. One of the two selected Nurse Pattinson, was unable to attend, and a chird applicant, who it was decided to hold in reserve in case either of the other two failed, was accordingly brought in. The two applicants therefore to be interviewed that day were Nurse Mary Duffield (32), superintendent nurse at Grimsby, and Nurse Hargrcaves (29), assistant nurse at Prestwich Union. The application and testimonials of each candidate were read and the two applicants interviewed. The position carries with it a salary of £ 30 per annum, with bO:1rd, lodging, washing, and uniform. Each applicant was proposed and seconded, and in the voting Nurse Hargreaves received 16 votes to the nine recorded for Nufse Duffield, and Nurse Hargreaves was therefore appointed. TENDER. I I A tender of 211 17s 3d for alterations in the laundry at the Workhouse was submitted from Messrs D Smith and Son, builders, Ledbury, and was accepted, subject to certain specifica- tions. LADIES' COMMITTEE. I Miss Holland read the report of the Ladies' Committee, which stated that the members of the Committee were much pleased with the cheerful appearance of the inmates. The visitors reported everything clean and in good order. The inmates much appreciated the new tea dietary. The alteration in the laundry would be a great improvement. The Committee proposed to start a Brabazon Society in the House, which would assist to pass away the long hours for some of the inmates. Mr Thompson moved that they receive and adopt the Ladies' Committee's report. They were very much obliged to them for the interest they took in the House and in the welfare of the inmates. He thought what Miss Holland had mentioned with regard to finding them some little work to do was a very good sug- gestion. The report was seconded and adopted. On the motion of Miss Holland, seconded by Mr Pedlingham, Miss Lake was appointed on the Visiting Committee, the Asylum Committee and the Boarding Out Committee. The other matter of public interest discussed was as to the removal of the children from the Workhouse and the report of the Boarding- Out Committee thereon, which will be found under another heading.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. I CHURCH LIGHTING. I To the Editor. Sir,- Your report of this meeting was not puite accurate, and one important point you entirely omitted. On the question being asked as to tbe comparative future cost of the two lights Mr Bistow gave certain figures which shewed the Electric Light scheme to be cheaper, but in fairness he bad to admit that his calculations so far as Gas was concerned, were based on the old fiat flame scheme of the past and not on thg new schema of in- verted iucandescent put forward by my Company. The latter scheme reduced the lighting points 50 per cent and the future consumption accordingly, and in common justice it is only right that this should be clearly explained. Had the comparative cost of future Gas Lighting been based on the new scheme, I am convinced that the annual cost would have been 50 per cent. at least, cheaper than Electric Light. It is, however, not my wish to create any controversy, as it was quite patent to the meeting that the decision was sub clubio. Thanking you for inserting this. Yours obediently, E JUCKES. I Secretary, Ledbury Gas Co. 1
I CHILDREN TO BE REMOVED FROM WORKHOUSES. t New Local Government Board Order. I Ledbury Board Favour Idea of Cottage Home. At the forbnightly meeting of the Ledbury Board of Guardians, held on Tuesd ay last Mr W L PritchetC (chairman), presiding, a lengthy and important discussiom took place on the report of the Boarding-Out Com- mittee with reference to the stepd to be taken in pursuance of the new Local Govern- ment Board Order, that all children over I three years of age are not to be kept in Workhouses. I COMMITTEE FAVOUR COTTAGE HOME. Alderman Riley, who is Chairman of the Boarding-Out Committee, submitted the report of the Committee, which was to the the following effect: —"The Committee recom- mend that the present system of boarding- out with foster-parents be continued, and for those children who are not suitable or eligible for boarding-out or for whem homes cannot be found the Committee recommend that a cottage home be provided. They also recommend that a house in the first place be rented, not purchased, not in Ledbury, but if possible to find, a suitable one outside." In submitting the report Alderman Riley said they would remember that the Clerk was instructed^) make inquiries as to what was going to be done by neighbouring unions in this matter, and the Committee had these replies before then. In no case did any Board inform them that they bad combined or intended to combine with other Unions and have all the children in one place. Even if that had been the case he doubted whether that course would have recommended itself to them. Tue Committee first of all recom- mended that children now boarded-out be continued to be boarded out. They now had to deal with children they had not had to deal with before as regards boarding-out. In cases where one or both the parents were alive it was quite impossible to board those children out, as the parent would be going to look at the child and complain of the foster- parent probably. They bad difficulty always in getting homes for children, and they bad often had to wait five or six weeks for a home for a child, so it was not likely that they would be able to find homes for a much larger number of children. When they considered this matter there were only five children in the House, but since then ten children had come into the House which would have to be provided for. That showed the numbers were very fluctuating, and the average number of children in tbe House other than those boarded-out had been something like 14 or 15. The Committee recommended, they should provide a home for those children who would not under the present rule be eligible to be boarded out at all. If they could find a house to contain ten or twelve children they thought it would be sufficient. The Com- mittee were very strongly of opinion that the house for tbe cottage home should not be in Ledbury. The difficulty was the schooling. If they pot ten or twelve additional children into a school in most of the parishes in this Union they would cause the local managers to suffer, as the Education Department would come down upon them and compel them to enlarge their school. He thought when they came to look into it there would be a very small choice of parishes for them to select from. The Committee- was unanimous in making tbe recommendation of the course to be proceeded with, and he hoped the Board would adopt the recomeaendation. Mr Davies What will be the cost of this home ? It will not only be providing a house and food but a matron aud a servant to wait upon her and perhaps again a subordinate servant. It is a great difficulty created for us by faddists. There is no necessity at all for it in this district. It is most foolhardy i to try and make a little district go in for a scheme like this, which ia. totally unneces- sary. It may be quite necessary in a big- centre, but not in a small community like this. It is a big expense for nothing. Mr Parry Will the nurse we appoint to- day be told she is expected to look after these children ? The Chairman The nurse we shall appoint to-day is for sick nursing. The present children's caretaker will be eligible for this post. We have no choice iJ1 this matter at all. It is the Local Government B:¡ard Order and we shall have to obey it. The Committee have very fully considered this question and Mr Riley has placed the case before us and we shall have to advertise for a house. Mr W S Lane: What rental will you expect to pay to get a house to take ten or twelve people ? The Chairman We shall have to have at least five bed rooms. Mr Davies: If all rural boards refuse to carry it out will the Local Government Board carry it out ? Mr Thompson Yes, and charge us with it. And it will cost a good deal more. Mr Davies Yes, but they will have a job on to do tbe lot. The Rev A H Knapp said he was a member of the Committee and be came to the conclusion that they must do as they were told. He did not think it would do any good protesting, and he was afraid they could do nothing in that way. Thev must do their best, and there were great difficulties in the way. The parishes were limited and they would have difficulty in providing a home, but at the same time they would do their best for the children. He seconded the adoption of the report. The Rev-W P P Matthews paid they had no time left to see what other Boards of Guardians were doing. He agreed with Mr Da vies altogether. If they could wait a little bit they would see what other Boards of Guardians were doing, and he suggested they wait until they saw what the Local Government Board would do. The Chairman Other Boards of Guardians in the county have adopted this course, and in every case are doing so. The Rev Matthews: After that we must do something. Mr W S Lane: Could not an effort be made to board out these children and so reduce the quantity ? The Chairman: You propose to board out all children you can, don't you, Mr Riley ? Mr Riley agreed. Mr Lane said it would bo better to pay double what they were paying now rather than have another institution. It would cost £200 to Z300 a year. The Chairman The difficulty is that the number of children fluctuates. A fortnight ago we only had five children in and since then we have had ten come in. You can't find a cottage home at a moment's notice. Mr W S Lane I offer no objection to the scheme, but I was trying to criticise in tbe hope of getting at the best way of carrying the thing out. Mr Davies: It would be better to give foster-parents more rather than have a cottage home with which we should have establishment charges to pay. Mr Thompson hoped they would accept the recommendations of the Committee. Mr Weston asked the Committee to keep in view the necessity and advantage of having this home in the country and the rural district. The support of the children and the Workhouse came largely from the rural district, and he thought these children should be kept in the country and have an opportunity of taking part in rural life. I They knew the disadvantage now, as people were all for the town, and it was the proper thing to have these children brought into the country. Mr Davies said he would propose an amendment that they find out what the Hereford Board would take their children at per week. Hereford was a bigger place than Ledbury and the Hereford Union had more children to deal with. The bigger the place and the more children the less cost per bead it would be. He proposed that they ask the Hereford Board what they would take their children for. It might be that they would only have three children to send to a cottage home, and then they would have a great cost for upkeep if they bad a cottage home of their own. If they could make some arrangement with a larger place like Here- ford they would benefit. Before they fixed up this Hoheme of a cottage home they should first 8Q"" ain, if it was not possible to board out wii i, Hereford and save money. M:iss Holland said she believed in scattered h6mes (boarding-out) for as many children as they could get homes for, and thought they could get more such homes if they paid more per week. Mr Thompson said that was a suggestion to bear in mind, but he hoped the Guardians would accept the report. If more homes could be found by paying more they should do so. He thought the question of whether they should establish a cottage home or board out with another Board was a question the Committee could consider later. Alderman Riley, in reply to the criticisms, said they could not tell' what a cottage home was going to cost until they knew what they could get a house for. They could not look out for a house unless the Board gave them sanction to do so. The members of the Board knew just as much as he did about it, and they knew just as well as be did what it was likely to cost in feeding children. As regards the payment for boarding-out, if they went on increasing the eost much more they would find it much more expensive and they would find that a lot of people would take the children for the sake of gain. With a low rate of pay it was a sign that persons took the children and looked after them for the sake of the children, and they had bad two or three children adopted by the foster- parents after the children bad reached the age of 14 years, and that showed that they had been successful with the children in the earlier years. He should be very much against any question of a higher rate of pav. Mr Davies said that was not his idea at all. His meaning was to board out all those possible and those they could not board out to deal with through another Board. He would withdraw his amendment and suggest that the Committee should find out what a home was to cost, what a matron was to cost, and the upkeep, of the home, and then find out what they could board out their surplus children at. The Chairman That will be their duty— to find out what they can do it for. They are bound to report to this Board. Mr Holds said as this was a trial scheme and the obligation of the Guardians might not be infringed for more than twelve months, he thought it was an excellent idea and in the long run the cheapest scheme to adopt. The report was unanimously adopted, and it was decided that the Board should advertise in the local newspapers for a honse.
MINIATURE RIFLE SHOOTING. I r The Astor County Cup. I The annual competition for the Astor County Gup was held on the Canon Froome Club's M-iiiiitiure Range on Saturday last, and attracted an entry of six teams, Tarring- ton (holii-eri), Canon Froome, Hereford, Ross, Hainnish and Kimbolton being represented. Conditions of the competition were 10 shots (two sighters allowed) at 25 yds, 50 yds, and 100- yds, on S.M R.C decimal target, the highest possible score on each raoge bei ug 100 points. The arrangements for the com- petion by the home club wore satisfactory,, and refreshments were provided In the ground by Mr A Bengry, of the Hopton Arms. Major Kelly, of Ross, in his usual convincing manner carried out the duties of Range Officer, and Mr Phillips,. of Balling- ham, again carried out the duties of statistics officer in his usual capable way. and: the shooting was carried out prom.ptly and in, an efficient manner. It will be seen by the scores appended that the Cup was won by Tarrington again, a team now well known in Herefordshire minature ri& shooting circles, who made the highest total on each of the ranges, and thus proved the superior team, resulting in a very decisive victory for the holders. For a first time team. Hereford were very prominent as runners up, but they were just lacking that finishing power which only Cdmes by experience in a shoot like this, but. we are bound to hear more of them in the future, and no doubt there will be a great struggle in the first round of the Hereford Times Cup to-morrow (Saturday), at Hereford, between them and Tarriagton, who are down to decide the first round on the Here- ford rauge. Some very noticable individual shooting was witnessed in the Astor Competition, the honours of the day going to a Tarrington "Shot" now well known among Hert ford- shire enthusiasts, Mr G Bowkett, with a fine score of 2^3, which included a highest possible score of 100 points at 25yds, and 99 at the 50 yds. Weil done, George An- other good range shoot was that of Mr N J Moore, of the Hereford Club, with a highest possible score at 50 yds and a good total of 286, while Mr C Mound, of the Kimbolton Club, also reached that total, with Mr A Zimmerman, of Tarrington, and Mr F Vick, of Kimbolton, only one point below, all of whom are worthy of congratulations. The order of merit of the teams can be seen by the scores appended:— TARRINGTON AND STOKE EDITH R.C. 25 yds. 50 yds, 100 yds. Total.
