Theft from Carmarthen Post Office
Theft from Carmarthen Post Office POSTAL ORDER PURLOINED. At the Carmarthen Borough Police Court on Monday before the Mayor (Mr John Lewis), Mr J. B. Arthur, Mr D. Lewis. Mr T. E. Brig- stocke. Mr H. E. Blagdon-Richards, Mr T. Thomas and Mr Waltcfr Lloyd, Mane Elizabeth Thomas was charged with stealing a Postail Order value 188 from the Carmarthen Post Office. Mr W. W. T. Prosser appeared to prosecute on behalf of the Postmaster-General and Mr D. King defended. Mr Prosser outlined the case from which it appeared that the defendant who assists her mother as a cleaner at the Carmarthen Post Office was charged with stealing a postal order while in course of transit between Aberystwyth and Ammanford. Mr John James, 35, Mill street, Aberystwyth a plasterer, staid: Previous to November I lived at TirrydaiJ, Ammanford. I went to Aberystwyth to work. My wife remained at Ammanford until November 15th. On the 30th October I wrote a letter to my wife. I put in the Postal Order for 18s. This is the Postal Order produced. I kept the counter- foil. I did not fill in the postal order. I addressed the letter to Mrs James. 9. Llan- dile road, Tirydail, Ammanford. I posted it at the North Gate street Post Office between 3 and 4 p.m. In conscience of what I heard I went -to the Post Office and made a com- plaint. Mrs Margaret James, wife of the previous witness, said T did not receive the letter re- ferred to. This Pcstal Order has never been in my possession. I did not give anybody any authority to cash it for me. Miss Edith Lewis, daughter of the sub-post- mistress of Priory street, said: I assist my mother in her business. The postal order was cashed by me between 10 and 11 a.m. on the 1st November. Defendant brought in the postal order. She filled it is in my presence. I knew she was a Miss Thomas, but I did not know her onristian name. She filled in the name "Miggie Thomas." Mr D. Thomas, overseer at the Carmarthen Post Office, said A letter posted as stated on Saturday would reach Carmarthen by the 9.7 p.m. train on the same date. It would remain at the Carmarthen Post Office until 7.40 p.m. on Sunday. Defendant's niouier is a cleaner at the Post Office. bhe takes it on alternate Sundays to clean the Post Office. She is assisted by her daughter. The mother was there on the 31st October. I produced the Record Book. Defendant is not recognised as a postal official. She comes in to assist her mother. Defendant would come in to sweep out the sorting office on Sunday morning. Mr T. E. Brigstocke When she was cleaning on Sunday morning would there be any over- sight P Witness No; not in the sorting office. There would be someone on duty at the public counter. Mr Cecil Francis Waveish. Clerk in the Secretary's Office, said I came to Carmarthen on the 14th January to make enquiries about this case. I saw the defendant at the head post office when I told her who I was and cautioned her. I told her she need not answer any questions; but that her answers would be taken down and might be used in evidence against her. I told her that I was informed that a missing postal order had been cashed by her and that- the two signatures and the name of the Post Office had been filled in by her. She said "Yes. sir. That is the truth." I told her that that P.O. had been sent in a letter by Mr James to Mrs James. I asked her how she became possessed of it. She said "As I was going home at 9 a.m. on Monday, I met a girl named Maggie Thomas by St. Peter's Church. She turned back to me and because she could not write she asked me if I would go in and change it. So I did go in and change it for her. I gave her the money and so she went." I said "Who is Maggie Thomas?". Defendant replied "She is a stranger to Carmarthen. Two other girls and I met her in town here. So we were going with her for the fortnight and so she was going away en Monday morning, November 1st. That is all I know about her. She has gone to ser- vice in Swansea. I don't know the place where she has gone. She has never written to me to tell me where she is." I asked her as to the other two girls who went about with her and Maggie Thomas. She said "I don't know what they are called. They have gone away; they went away just before Maggie. They are not my real friends. My real friends are 'n Carmarthen." I asked her how she knew Maggie Thomas did not write, and she replied "Befoause she told me." At my request she gave a description of Maggie Thomas. She gave me a description and added in answer to another question that she was in service some- where. I asked her at what address and she replied "I don't know we used to meet her in town." I asked her if she could tell me any- one in Carmarthen who knew either Maggie Thomas or the two other girls, and she said she could not. I asked her if she expected to hear from Maggie Thomas after she left. She replied "Yes; she promised to send me a post- ea-vd; but she did not." I reminded her that she said Maggie Thomas could not write and she replied "Yes, she said she was going to have a friend to write for her. She denied that she ever saw a letter addressed to Mrs James or had taken it from the Post Office. Defendant pleaded "Guilrty," and elected to be dealt with summarily. Mr D. King said that the prosecution by not taking proceedings under the Post Office Act had given the magistrates freedom in dealing with the case. Defendant had a good charac- ter and had evidently after several years given way to a sudden temptation. He would point out that she was not a postal official; there was no breach of trust except between her and herself. The Bench bound the defendant over. She was also ordered to refund the 18s, and to pay other costs amounting in the aggregate to £3 8s 8d.

The cortege left the fair ground at the Strand while one' of the platforms of a roundabout was completely covered by no less than 64 floral tributes.

2nd4th Welsh Officers
2nd-4th Welsh Officers. TWO "DISMISSED THE SERVICE." It is intimated that communications have been received from the military authorities stating that Major W. T. Campbell Jones and Captain and Adjutant J. Santa Evans, of the 2nd-4tli Welsh. Regiment, who were recently tried by court martial at Scoveston Fort, Ney- land, Rem., have been dismissed the service. It is incorrect to say that the sentences in the court .martial procedure have been promul- gated. We understand, however, that intima- tion has been received in Wales of the con- firmation of the sentences, namely, dismissal from the service in the case of both officers. We further understand that the officers oon- cerned are likely to make a further appeal to the military authorities before the sentences are actually promulgated. Both officers, who are well known in West Wales, were tried at ft. General Court Marital, presided over by Col. C. Phillips (Officer Com- manding the Severn Defences). The proceed- ings extended over ten days, from January 14 to January 24. The prosecutor was Brigade- Major Ready. and the judge advocate Major the Hon. H. M. Smith, D.S.O. Mr Llewelyn Williams, K.C.. M.P.. and Mr Trevor Hunter appeared for the accused officers (on the in- structions of Mr J. Wallis-Jones, solicitor, Carmarthen and Mr Dd. Jennings, solicitor, Li a nelly). When the court-martial closed it was com- mon knowledge that btoh officers had been found guilty, as the president had in e.a case called for the accused's record. In each case the record was a clean one. The court-martial was protracted because a number of witnesses were called on each charge,, and while noth- ing authoritative can be affirmed as to ttie findings of the court in each case, it was credi- bly reported that Major Jones was found guilty on one charge and not guilty on two charges and that Captain and Adjutant Santa Eva-ns was found guilty on one charge and not guilty on the other.
CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOUR MOVEMENT AT CARMARTHEN
CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOUR MOVEMENT AT CARMARTHEN. That the Christian Endeavour Movement is "catching on" in Carmarthen was a notice- able fact by the very large and enthusiastic attendance at the Tabernacle. Carmarthen, on Thursday last. when a joint meeting of the Water street. Peniel. and Tabernacle societies was held. The Rev Ungoed Thomas presided, and was supported on the platform by the Rev W. D. Rowlands, Water street, and Mr Jones (Penuel), together with the officers of the three Societies. The Scripture reading was allotted to Mr Robert Thomas (secretary of the Water street .Society) and Mr Owen Jones engaged in prayer. The topic for dis- cussion was "For the Sake of Christ," and was introduced by Mr J. V..Tamos (Penuel). Mr James spoke of the success of the C.E. move- ment in Carmarthen, and of the ent-husiasm it aroused amongst it members to assist in Church work. A discussion followed and several took part. Solos were rendered by Miss Phyllis Lewis. Miss Gwen Hodges, and Mr Emry Thomas, and Mr 1. H. Ungoed-Thomas acted a accompanist. The secretarial duties were carried out by Mr Thos. John Evans, the .secretary of the Tabernacle C.E. Society.

Tea concluded and the hall cleared for an entertainment, th% electric right suddenly went out and the hall vas in darkness. It subsequently transpired that the light had been tampered with, and that during the period of darkness a number had lost their purses, while badges from the hats of wounded soldiers and other articles had disappeared, including a scarf one of the hostesses had had given her by a soldier since killed.
