CABMEN'S DIFFERENCES. The cabmen on the Promenade Cabstand, Penartb, resent the town cabmen coming to their stand, without orders. On the 23rd ultimo Percy Vernal went to the Promenade stand for a fare, when it was alleged by Henry Matthews, another cabman, that after wrangling for some time, Vernal, whilst closing the door of his cab, struck him two violent blows in the face, and he now charged Vernal with assault. Matthews' version was corroborated by Thomas John and Frederick Cheeseman.—There was a cross-summons, Vernal, who was represented by by Mr J. H. Jones, solicitor, Cardiff, denied that he struck Matthews, but that he was assaulted by Matthews, and that he was chased by Matthews and his witnesses.- After hearing the whole of the evidence the Bench dismissed both cases. ALLEGED INDECENCY AT CADOXTON. Alfred White, a seaman, giving his address as The Priory, Barry was brought up in custody charged with indecently assaulting Margaret Barrett, agedsix^years, of Albert-street, Cadoxton Moors, on the 2nd instant. The little girl said she was coming home from school on Monday, and went into a field near the brickworks and the prisoner followed^he^ and took her „n hu^p, Ld assaulted her.—Dr E. Treharne, J.P stat^ examined the child, but found no external marks of violence, though there was a congestion and inflammation of the lavia.—Edward John Phillins stated he saw the two little girls go into a field and were followed by the prisoner. He subse- quently heard them scream, and saw them run away from White. He took the little girl Barrett back to the accused, but could get nothing from her. Prisoner then ran away.—Dock-constable Rees arrested the prisoner, and handed him over to P.C. Hamlett, by whom he was subsequently charged, and in reply denied the charge. — The prisoner was committed for tii.d at the Assizes. ASSAULT ON A CAB-DRIVER. Harry Brown and Phillip Hill, of Penaith, were charged with assaulting a cabman named Frederick Cheeseman on the 23rd ultimo. Prosecutor said he took the two defendants from the Esplanade to the top of the dock, and on alighting from the box found three men in the vehicle. He said the fare would be Is 6d, whereupon Hill struck him to the ground, and whilst on the ground Brown struck him with an umbrella. On being examined by Mr J. If. Jones, who defended, Cheeseman said he was sober. He did not meet with an accident in driving, and had not yet received payment for the hire of the vehicle. He did not use filthy language. Neither did he back his carriage into them, or strike them across the face and legs with his whip, until after he was struck. He admitted receiving a thrashing for using his whip. -Robert Norman corroborated. Brown and Hill said they had a most eventful drive, Cheeseman nearly driving them into a shop. They got out a little further up and was given a shilling, and because he could not get more struck at them with a whip. They only struck him to defend them- selves.—William Ellis said he interfered when he saw Cheeseman using a whip.-There was a cross- summons and the same facts were elicited. -The case against Cheeseman was dismissed and Brown and Hill were fined 10s each. OFFENDING CYCLISTS. Frederick Morris, Barry, and Henry Rowe were fined 5s each for riding bicycles on the footpath at Llandough. BONFIRE IN A LANE. Thomas Matthews was cautioned for lighting a bonfire in a lane at the rear of John-street, Penarth.
