LLANDUDNO COUNTY I COURT. THE HOUSING PROBLEM. DOCTOR'S CLAIM FOR DAMAGE TO SHOP. His Honour Judge Bryn Roberts pre- sided at the Llandudno County Court on Thursday, and was assisted by the Regis- trar (Mr R. S. Chamberlain. J.P.), with the Clerk (Mr T. O. Morgan). There were seven cases on the list, but tho day was occupied in hearing a suit for possession of a house (adjourned) and an action for damages (part heard). OORSCHOT Y. LITTLE ORME QUARRIES. In regard to the claim of Alexander "Victor van Oorschot, a Belgian, residing at Llanneroh-road, Coiwyn Bay, against the Ship Canal Portland Cenieiit Com- pany. proprietors of the Little Orme Quar- ries, for compensation for injuries received in their service, tfhich was heard at the previous county court tet Conway, His Honour said lie would not give judgment now as he had proposed,, but-would notify the parties of his decision later. SUIT FOR POSSESSION OF HOUSE. Air Benjamin Davies, rico rildler, Clare- mont, J/-enketh-road, Wallasey, sougnt possession 01. premiæs known as Dudiej' House, 9, Cionmel-.street, Llandudno, m the occupancy of Mr J. H. Davies, haar- <li(\sser. Mr A. Graham (instructed by Mr J. E. Hallmark, Llandudno) appeared for plain- tiff, and Mr J. J. Marks, Llandudno, was for the defence. It appeoi-ed that Mr Benjamin Daviee required the shop and ncusy for the bene- fit of his two sons recently relumed from the war, who wished to set up a motor business. The premi ses were let to Mr J. H. Davies by Mr O. T. Swinnerton, Win- I Ilou-P, IJaTidi-idno. The tenant did not require tne shop, but wished to re- main in the house. Plaintiff, his son, and others gave evi- dcfxaonh'a behalf. Mra Davies (wife of the tenant) said I that when Mr Swijinertozi, let them the I lionise in P312 nothing was said about giving up the tenancy, but on thio Satur- day after Armistice Day he went t-o see them and gave them six weeks' notice, which they refused to accept. Some time afterwards Mr Hallmark called and said Mr Benjamin Davies had takeii over and wished to occupy tho whole of nig pre- mises. She replied that it was impossible for them to find a house. Mr Ifaiimiark offered to pay the cost of moving or stor- ing their furniture, and said he might. let them know of ot her accommodation, but he had not sent them word. In August of this year, witness met Mr Charles Percy Davies (sen of plaintiff), who tolJ her hus- band to ignore tie notice given by Mr Hallmark, as he (Mr C. P. Davies) was the senior partner in the arm, and did not wish them to leave. Trusting to that as- surance, witness and her husband took no steps to find a house, but on October 23rd they received a county court summons. By Mr Graham Tire shop on the pre- mises had been advertised in the local papers as a "lock-up" shop, apart from the house. Mr Graham suggested that this state- ment was absolutely fake. His Honour: "I suppose tine local news- papers are filed in the Recor ds Officio, and that the point can bo easily decided?" Further cross-examined, witness den, "ed that she and her husband had agreed to leave if t-he premises were let as a whole. Her husband earned 22 109 weekly as a hairdresser, and they had one little girl, so they could not afford to go into rooms. She admitted they reeoived visitors during the summer, but denied that was the rea- son they wished to remain on the pre- mises. People were offering £5 or more for the key of fcmall houses, and she had made every effort in the past six weeks to find-a house within their means. She had not tried to get rooms, and tfiought it wouM bo dimcutt with a child. WHEN WILL HOUSES BE BUILT? I Re-examined by Mr Marks: She had registered her name with the Llandudno Urban Council for one of the houses they i proposed to erect. Air Marks: "My friend Mr Hallmark is on the Council, and perhaps he will let us know when the houses may be ex- pected." His Honour: It is no use going into that. Obviously the teaiants intend t-o avail themselves of the new Act, which remains in force until Lady Day, 1921. Of course, should the various Councils succeed in building (houses within that time, or if houises &houid descend from heaven, the conditions would be altered, and it might be the Act would be re- pealed. Evidence was giveoi by the teq)ant-(Mx J. H. Davies) and Mr John Tipton (ihon. secretary Llandudno branch. Comrades of the Great War). Mr Graham submitted that Mr and Mrs Davies could find rooms even though they might not get a house. His Honour would bo more familiar with conditi-ons at LlaJi- dudno than ho (counsel), whose ohiief anxiety when he visited there on business was to get away as quickly as possible. His Honour reniarked that he had never stayed in Llandudno. He found that due notice to quit had been given. Quoting Mr Justice Darling, he said "al- ternative accommodation" did not raooas- sarilv mean another house, but applied yiJt-o to apartments. No evidence had been laid before him to show that the tenants mignt obtain accommodation with- in their means. No doubt, they could be accommodated, for instance, at the lead- ing hotel, but ,he must be satisfied tha.t the apartments of which Mr Graham spoke were such that a workman's family might reasonably be expected to occupy. Mr Graham aeked for an adjournment to produce evidence on this point, and Mr Marks agreed to this course on plaintiff undertaking to pay the ooots of the day. ALLEGED WILFUL DAMAGE. Dr. Thomas Louis Kendrick Davies, Glan Menai, Trinity Square, Llandudno, for whom Mr Graham (instructed Dy Messrs Chamberlain and Johnson, Ll-an- dudno) appeared, hrouc-nt a su.it against Mra Louisa Ada Kendal, Sans Souci, St. David's road, Llandudno, and Mr R. C. Baxter, draper, 39, Mostyn-streot, Llan- dudno (represented by Mr Hutchinson Newman, Liverpool, instructed by Messrs T. II. Morgan and Co., Colwyn Bay, act- | ing as agents for Mr J. A. Hindley, Llan- lluduo), to recover £100 damages, being, 250 the value of certain fittings of the plaintiff's premises, 14, Lower Mostyn-st., Llandudno; £ 25 damages for wrongful act connected with their removal; and S25 for actual damage of the premises. Mrs Kendal and Mr Baxter had paid J617 10s into court and 2-1 -12,s 2d casts. Mr Newman said till at at the Colwyn Bay County Court held on September.5th. 1918, .I)r. Davies had been awarded a quarter's rent against Mrs Kendal (who was then Mrs Carter), and refused to take fixtures in lieu. At the close of the case something was said about the removal of the fixtures, and it was agreed verbally that she might take away those she had instailcd. Owing to the fact that these fixtures had not been removed within the time specified by law, they became the landlord's property, but Mrs Kendal had sold both these fix- tures and others, such as electric light fittings to which she had no claim -at a.U, to Mr Baxter, who rented the window of the shop at 7s 6d as a weekly tenant, who had taken them away. The electric light fittings in the house (where Mrs Kendal had no right to go) had been wrenched from the wall, and such damage had been done in the course of the removal of these and other fixtures that it seemed a case of petty spite. AH the fixtures, SlId even other articles, including doors an plate rack, had been taken away, though re- cently, as if admitting an offence, two doors and the plate rack had been re-
I "NOBODY'S DAUGHTER" AT LLANDUDNO. I AMATEUR DRAMATIC SOCIETY'S j PERFORMANCE. I POPULAR FOUR ACT PLAY. The Llandudno Amateur Dramatic So- ciety opot,ned their season this year at the Grand Theatre, on Wednesday and Thurs- day nights, last week, with a performance of the four-act play, N obody's Daugh- ter," by George Pa.stoii. which was origin- ally produced in London by Gerald du Mauri". The story briefly is that in their youth. Mrs Frampton and Colonel Tocr- rens committed an indiscretion, the result being the appearance of Monora May, who was handed over to the care of a piolli spmister,Christine Grand. Colonel Tor- reiis now married to another woman, and Mrs Frampton also married to a managing director of a pottery work, jiose as the guardians of the girl, ai-i pay her occa- sional visits. It is during onu of thc.<:e visits that the play opens, when Honora is eighteen years of age, and has promised to marry Will Leonard, a mentor median ic. The girl's guardians decline to consent to the engagement at first, but eventuallv agreed to do so after Henora has been out in the world for six months, and experi- enced a different life, providing that she and "ïll are still of the same mind at the expiration of that period. Honora is theat taken home by Mrs Frampton as her ward, and this leads to the discovery of the truth in the third act. After some stormy jw.ss- ages in this act, in which the acting reached a high pitch, the story is brought to a happy conclusion for all in tl11.' next act. Whether the selection of this play for a L. A.D.S.'s production was a wise one or not is a debatable question. If the objeot of the selection was to afford an oppor- tunity for new members of this einient society to make a successful debut it cer- tainly succeeded ir at least one case, but on the other hand, if the intention was for the still further enhancing of the reputa.- tions of the old-favourite* of the society, it may be said that it failed in its mis- sion. In the opening stages of the play a.t "Ohristinc Grant's cottage," there was a strong suspicion of nervousness, and players were for a time content to merely recito their lines with but little attempt at. acting their part. The appearance of Miss Kathleen Mountfield, in the title role of Honora Ma.y (nobody's daughter) brought, a freè1 atmCetre into the play. Her winsome manner, perfectly natural acting, and clear enunciation, had the magnetic effect of putting everyone else on the stago at eaise. This was Miss Mountfield's first appear- ance with the L.A.D.S., when she at once won the highest plaudits of her audience and scored for herself a triumph r.uoo as has fallen to few girls in their teens, mak- ing their first appearance on an amg-teur dramatic stage. Another new-comer was Mr Olem. B. Arnold, D.S.O., who appeared in the role of Will Leonard, the young mechanic to whom Honotra had pledged herself. Mr Arnold's brave and gallant deeds on the battlefield are stall fresh in our minds, and his brilliant performances on the foot- ball field this season are winning for him still further laurels, but as an actor lie left much to be desired. Th", of course, was his first appearance, and probably, when ho has had as much experience on the stage as on tiie football field, we may look forward to greater things. Of the old members of the society, the palm must undoubtedly be given to Mr John Roberts, who, as Mr Frampton, ex- ceeded the most sanguine expectations, and roee to a height of really clever acting in the third act, when he discovered that his own wife was the mother of Hon- ora. Mrs Arthur Dunphy, always a welcome favourite on the dramatic stage, was not at her best in this production. She open- ed somewhat timid, but as time went on became more at ease. To those who sat in closer proximity to the stagfie file waa heard to better advantage, but in other parts of the building her lines were at times inaudible. Nevertheless, she pour- tra.yed a difficult role with her ueual high quality of acting, which won for her rounds of applause from an appreciative audience. Mr Arthur Dunphy, whom one is accus- tomed to look for as the shining light of these productions, had but little to do comparatively with his former appear- ances, and one felt somewhat disappoint- ed at not seeing the leading actor of the society in a part with greater scope for his capabilities- He, however, gave of his best as far as the play permitted. Miss J. Currie, ar, Christine Grant, was perfectly natural without over-emphasis- ing the jiart of the pious spinster, and dis- played the skill of a trained actress. The rolo of Mrs Tor re as was piaved by Miss Gwendolyn Hewitsoo, with consider- able charm and ability. Her intensely dra.ma,tic interpretation of the part, when she took up the defence of Mrs Framp- ton, in the third act, was almost superb. Miss Lilian Winter, as Teresa Holroyd, the di.aeonten±ed daughter of a parson, and Mr Fred Von-esteT, as the lame son of Oolonel and Mrs Torrens, were both quite at home- in their parts, which they pourtrayed with much credit. Mr W. J. Gordan (liantrev, as Jasper Marchmont, did full justice to the part allotted him, and created a very favourable impression. And last. but. not least, comes another of the principal members of the society, who, upon this occasion, 'was oailv seen in the minor part of a maid, and had but little to do, but did that little well. The stage setting, as usual, reflected greatoredit upon Mr W. P. Lines, the theatre stage manager. During the intervals selections by a bi- jou orohostra were given, under the direc- tion of Mr T. W. Stoddart. Large audi- ences attended both performances, as a result of -which the ftmds of the Llan- dudno Cottage Hospital (in aid of whioh the proceeds were devoted) will no doubt benefit considerably.
I GREAT ORME TRAMWAY CO. 4 PER CENT. DIVIDEND. The directors of the Great. Orme Tramway Company, Llandudno, have dccided to recom- mend a dividend of 4 per cent. Owing to the capital subscribed, when the company was formed nearly twenty years ago, being in- adequate, the railway was constructed to a large extent out of capital borrowed on the personal security of the directors. Nearly the whole of the borrowed morcey has since been repaid out of earnings, and the Board now feci justified in recommending their first dividend.
LLANDUDNO "BABY I SHOW." I AN INTERESTING EVENT. The "Baby Show," organised by the Llandudno Welfare (.Committee, which works in conjunction with the lioaltii Committfe of the Council, was held in the Town HaJJ. Llandudno, on Monday afternoon. The committee has only been in existence since April, but previously the Health Visitor (Mrs Rees) had been engaged in infant welfare work for some months with excellent results. A clinic was established in the Town HaU, and mothers and expectant mothers were en- couraged to (I t.ere and consult Miss Rees, and ?? the work has nro?rc'sej effectively. There were three classes for the babies, i.e., Class A, over two and under three years Class B, over one and under two years: and Class C, babies under twelve moaiths o!d. The judgca were Dr. Dalton, Nurse ("loss Parry (suporinltendent county nurse), Nurse Dennis Jones (superintend- ent County Nursing- School), and Nurse Parry. The arrangements were mad e by Mrs A. C. Smith, hon. secretary to the Welfare Committee: Miss E. Bryant (assistant hon. secretary), Miss Dalton (hon. treasurer), and the HeaJth Visitor IMi, Rees). There were 36 entries in the three classes. MUNIFICENT GIFTS. Dr. Woodhouse presided at the pre-" ,mentation of awar ds which took place the following day, and stated he hoped that Baby Week would become an annual event, but he was a little disappointed that- more expectant mothers did not come to the centre for advice. Those who wore able to engage trained nuraM; were undoubtedly saved from many of the dangers which attended motherhood, and the State had recognised its dirty in the matter. The cent-re was not a charitable institution, but an attempt- on the part of the State to preserve in- fant life, upon the saving of which the future of the nation depended. Attached to the local centre was a thrift and cloth- ing club. This again was not a charity, but was self-supporting. The mothers paid for any clothing they required, and which was made out of the best materials by the ladies. He had one announcement of particular interest to make. and that was that their very good friend, Miss ( Barker, had sent him a cheque for £1000 towards acquiring a building to be used as the Centre for Welfare and Maternity work. Mr Cain (another friend) had given £ 100, and other promises had been made. The U9e.S for which such a building could be put were as quarters for the health visitor; and as a child cJinic, and as a creche, and he hoped also it would oon- tain two maternity rooms. He hoped that the working men of the town would sup- port the institution with regular weekly contr.butioils and so make it their own LIST OF AAVARDS.. I Mrs A. C. Smith thon announced the prize winners, and the Hon. Mrs Henry Mostyn mado the presentations as fol- lows:- Class A.. 1, May Neiison Hargreaves, 8, Winllau-avenue, 85 ma.rks; 2, ATiolet Coburn, School House, Church-walks, 83 ma.rks..

I LLANDUDNO WINTER GARDENS. The a fternoon and evening in the Llandudno Pier Pavilion Winter Gair den continue to be weU attended, and the committee hope to be able to keep them going until March, fchue, for the second year, achieving the ideal of an all-winter season. They aro makin.g special ar- rangements for the Christmas and New Year holidays. Mr Charles Till is one of tihe vocalists engaged. On the first Sat- urday in the New Year the Mold Juvenile Action Song Party, under the direction of Miss Ciseie Arthur, are to appear at the a and evening concerts. These clever children won the prize for action songs at the Corwen Eisteddfod. The artiste for to-night (Tnursday) and to-morrow nign,. (Friday) ifi Miss F. • Brigge-Whiteley, contralto, and for Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Mr Gwilym Dowell, tenor, of the Royal Col- lege of Music, is engaged. Mr Dowell had a good reception on his first visit to Llandudno a yeair ago. He will be fol- bowed by Miss May Jones, contralto. Mr Walter Ilaig.-i continues to provide very varied and always enjoyable pro- grammes of orchestral music, in the per- formance of which the orchestra give of tiheir best. A charming diversion from the usual programme was made on Satur- day night, when Alias Nora MacKellar gave a dance. This little lady, only just seven years of age, is a very creditable pupil of Mrs Ernest Chase's. She gave a daJioe ctalled "Po.tdre Pouffe," and re- spoiiding to the hearty applause of an ex- ceptionally large audience fjhe followed l with a "Cupid dance and the Highland dance to the tune of the "Keel Row." Miss Griffith. The Raven, played the piano accompaniment. Mr J. Wilford Roberts, tihe singera this and the two following conek-rti, a yplendad baritone, I won the admiration of all.
CARNARVONSHIRE I HOSPITALS. I SIR, JOHN LEIGH'S GIFT OF 45,5w. I Sir John Ijcigh, Bart., of Lilleshall, Shrop- shire, and tteach House, Llandudno, has paid into Mrs Lloyd George's account the sum of £ 5,500 for hospital woriy in Carnarvonshire. Five thousand pounds will be paid to the Llandudno Jlospttal for the purpose of an rn- dowment, and X250 each as donations to the Bangor and Carnarvon Hospitals. The cheques will be forwarded forthwith. Sir John Leigh is a constituent of the Prime Min- ister's and one Of his most ardent admirers. Sir John Leigh, Bart., who only received his baronetcy last, year, has j<iveil freely to eliar- 'ity. Doring the war he handed over to the British Rod Cross Society a memorial hospi- tal at Altrinohani, Jwarillhis name, for the use of wounded officers, the value of the gift ■being some 1:20,000. He also presented to the Ministry of Pensions, the fine <'state of Codbourne, at Brooklatids, for use as a hos- pital for the treatment of shell-shock patients. Perhaps his greatest Rift was in Octobcr, 1917, when he trave to Mr John Hodge, M.P., then Minister of Pension-, the sum of £ 50,000 for the pur (lose of providing institutional treatment for disabled soldiers.
Replying to Capt. Loseby, Mr Churchill said it would take three or four years to provide medals for the n-jeti who aotuaiiv did tihe fighting in t,he war, and be thought the case of men who did not do tie light- illg oould lnuta little
I LLANRWST POLICE COURT. I THE COUNCILS CHAIRMAN ANJ) MAJOR PKIDDLE. ALLEGED "DISPARAGING STATE- MENTS. This court was held on Monday, before I Messrs W. J. Williams (chairman), W. G. Owen, W. Hughes, and Albert Hughes. A MAGISTRATE S PROTEST. At the outset of the proceedings Mr Aibert Hughes, magistrate and chairman of the Urban Council, protested against certain remarks attributed to Major Priddle, whilst presiding over the previous court- The statements complained of were made wi th respect to the iiosition of the town an the cr:mina; statistics of the coun- ty. Mr Hughes said he felt it his duty, as one of the representatives of the inhabi- tants, to protest againsf such disparaging statements concerning the town. He lia4i had 26 years' experience of Llanrwsi and district, and during that time he ventured to say that a considerable improvement had taken place. Undesirable facilities for drinking had been removed, and numerous licences done away with. Major Priddle was reported to have said that the condition of affairs at Llanrwst was v. ry bad. He (Mr Hughes) had waited a fortnight to see whether the ac- curacy of the re))ort. wou'd be challenged. but it did not appear to have been. He, therefore, came to the conclusion that it was correct. A statement of this kind must cause incalculable harm to the welfare of the town generally, and lead those not con- versant with the town to the impression that it was a very depraved spot- They had a Town Improvement Association which was striving its utmost to bring more visitors there, but if these kind of statements were avowed to pass unchal- lenged it was useless to do so. Another point in Major Priddle's remarks was, he thought, a slui- on the grand work done by Inspector Jones. Major Priddle was reported to have expressd the hope that Inspector Thomas would bring about an improvement in the state of affairs at Llanrwst. He (Mr Hughes) contended that a more efficient and conscientious official than Inspector Jones could not bo found, and quoted several instances to show his efficiency, and that of the staff under him. With those few remarks he dissociated himself from the sentiments of his colleague on the Bench. After a few remarks by the Chairi-nan and Inspector Thomas, the incident olobed. EGLWYSBACH LICENCE TRANS FERRED. Mr Henry Jones applied on behalf of < Mr John Evans, Penbryn CVed, for the transfer of the licence of the Hand inn, Egiwysbach. from Mr David Jones, to Mr Evams, which was granted. CHARGE AGAINST A WORKMAN I DISMISSED. t The London and North-Western Railway Company (for whom 'Air T. Latlmer Jones appeared) summoned John Jones, Bryn Arthur, Glan Conway, for having travelled between Glan Conway and Dol- garrog, on October 16th, without having paid his fare: A second charge was pre- ferred against the defendant of having travelled on the morning of October 17th between Dolgarrog and Glan Conway without paying his fare.-Mi- David Tho- mas appeared for the defendant. For the prosecution it was a!leged that the defendant, who was a night work- man at the Aluminium Works, was seen to enter a train at G]aa Conway, and on arrival at "Dolgarrog did not produce a ticket or offer to pay excess fare. Chi the following morning the defendant was seen to enter the train at Do'.garrog for Glan Conway without Ivaving booked. A watch was set for him at Glap Conway, but the defendant walked out ot the station without producing a ticket or offering to pay the excess fare. Evidence for the prosecution was given by Mr Lewis, stationmaster at Glan Con- way; Mr Edwards, stationmaster at Dol- garrog; Detective Inspector Hughes, and N. E. Poole, a porter at Glan Conway. The defendant, who pleaded not guilty, produced a workman's ticket for the night in question, which had been booked at Coiwyn Bay. The defendant stated that he had had occasion to go to Coiwyn Bay on the loth October, a-nd had bOOked the ticket there, as at was cheaper for him. If he had been asked for his ticket by the collector he would have given it up. The cases were dismissed-
LLANRWST COUNTY COURT. SEQUEL TO A SALE OF STORE PIGS. I This court was held on Friday, before His I Honour Judge Bryn Roberts. A BETTWSYCOED ACTION. Leonard Alfred Doult, of Boxmoor, Herts, (for whom Mr David Thomas ap- peared), sued John Harrison, Bettweycoed, for PZI 4. being the amount of a cheque given by the delcndant to tnc plaintiff for the price of eight store pigs, and payment of which had been stopped. The defend- ant (for whom Mr D. Howell Jonee ap- peared) counter-claimed tne sum of J621 its damages for the. breach of an alleged warranty given by letter in reference to the &ale of the pigs. The cheque was admitted. In support of tiho counter-claim, the defendant stated the plaintiff had written him stating thas the pigs were strong store pigs. The de- fendant alleged that they were poor, and only weighed 221hs. each. He caused them to bo put up for sale by auction on the 25th ult., and they only realised jB16 16s. His counter-claim was for the difference between this sum and the amount. of the cheque, and for £9 12b for tihe keep of the pigs for eight weeks and lls 6d expenses. Ho had previously purchased pigs from the plaintiff, and they were good. When ho saw the pigs he immediately stopped payment of the cheque. Thomas AlcGill, Bryn Moe!; M. Stobart, Coedmor; Sergt. Davies, Bettwsycoed, and Llewelyn Evans, Garthervr, gave evi- dence on behalf of the defendant, and all described the pigs as being inferior and not strong store pigs. The plaintiff, in reply, siid that. the pigs were in strict, accordance with the description given of them by him to the defendant. His Honour gave judgment for the plain- tiff on the claim with costs, and for the defend;; for tl2 12s on the counter- claim a: f costs. A èLAIM FOR WAGES.
