Llandovery Council and Tolls
Llandovery Council and Tolls. At a meeting of the Llandovery Town Council on Monday, Alderman T. Watkins (the deputy mayor) presiding, the question of the loss of tolls was discussed. Mr W. J. Esmond reviewed the circum- stances which led up to the present situation. At the June meeting a motion was, carried granting the application of Messrs Bostock and Wombwell to occupy the Green Lodge G,ro-und. When seconding the motion he was aware that some sort of a precedent existed for such sub-letting, and in order to be on sale ground he asked if on the previous occa- sion anyone had questioned the right of the Council in so sub-letting, and to receive the rent for the ground. He was then answered that the Council received the money without question. The acceptance of the rent by the Council assumed the Council's right to sub- let. It was not his intention to excuse or justify the repudiation of any agreement, but he did submit that if any irregularity had occurred it occurred two years ago, and the whole of the Council were equally liable. They had merely followed a precedent which had not been challenged. The present situation had been brought about through no desire on the part of the Council to ignore agreements but through the alleged action of one get-.tlo man who in order to impose his will on 1)10 rest of the Council-- The Chairman: You must not indulge in personalities. Mr Esmond (warmly): I accept full respon- sibility for what I say, and as a representative of the people I claim the right to say what I conceive to be my duty to say. Mr Esmond I maintained that the Council had a right 10 criticise such action. Had the alderman been present he intended to ask him to admit or deny the report. The Chairman asked the speaker to keep to the resolution. Mr Edwards moved "That the Council in- quire into the circumstances of the resolution relating to the sub-letting of the Green Lodge Ground, and that the Town Clerk communi- cate with Alderman C. P. Lewis asking him to deny the report that he communicated with the landlord or his agent, and. if unable to do so, that he furnish the Council with a copy of his- letter. or if the information was given orally, then to send to the Council the sub- stance of his conver.-ation." Councillor Richard Thomas seconded, and the motion was carried. The Chairman said there was an agreement, and it stipulated against sub-lotting. Mr R,. Thomas: I rise to a point of order. You put the motion to the meeting and it has been carried. The Chairman said he would have to ask for protection. Mr R. Thomas said the chairman should have declared the motion carried. The Chairman: It is not with my sanction. I say it is perfectly illegal. Later the Chairman declared it carried under protest. He declined any responsi- bility in the matter. The following resolution, moved by Mr R. Thomas, and seconded by Mr Esmond, was also carried:—"That an application be made to 1)1rGwynn HoMord's agent for a copy of a letter received by him in regard to any in- formation received re Green Lodge, to that complaints alluded to may be inquired into."
Empty City for Germans
Empty City for Germans. EVACUATION OF WARSAW. The iNew York correspondent of the "Weekly Despatch" sends a graphic desei iption ol the scenes, in Warsaw before and during its evacu- ation, which has been sent to the "Chicago Daily News" by Mr Ba'ssett Rigby, its corres- pondent with the Russian Army. He wired from Stockholm as follows :— After obtaining at the fighting tront authentic news ot the military plans now being carried ou in and- around Wanaw. I have hurried to Stockholm. Warsaw is isolated from all but military communication. A week ago to-day a train arrived in Moscow carrying the Britteh, the French. Belgian, and Serbian Consuls, and the consular achives. The American Consul remained in Warsaw, having laid in a. big stock of provisions, with the intention of stick'ng to his post. On the train were also the British Anglican chaplain an the last remnant of the British- colony, some riding in cattle trucks. The refugees included most of the officials of the Law Courts, with their archives and about L3,000,000 of court funds. On Thursday evening, July 15. the Russian authorities announced that the official evacu- ationof the city would begin oil the following Sunday. As a matter of fact it began mme- diately. Police visited every house, and one American was told to try to induce the inha- t bitants to leave at once for Russia as distinct from Poland. Empty freight cars were quietly accumulated 011 sidings until thou- sands were available. In Warsaw itself literally tens of thousands r of homes were broken up instantly. 1 know of four cases of men worth more than £ 200,000 last month who are now nearly penniless. Simultaneously with the evacuation all pro- perty likely to be useful to the enemy, espe- cially metal machinery, was removed or destroyed. Factories were feverishly stripped and owners of plant were granted free trans- port to the eastward for what they could save. Day and night one heard the periodical roar of dynamited factory pliant that was embedded in concrete or was too cumbersome to dis- mantle and transport. Every fragment of this dynamited metal was taken eastward on the railway. Warsaw's, newspapers made their last op- pea ranee with issues announcing the evacu- ation. Their linotype machines were rooted up and carted away. Police and soldiers visited every printing establishment and every newspaper office, taking founts of type and dismantling presses. Hardly a ton of copper fitting was left in the city. All stocks of cop- per in pipe factories and plumbing shops, copper used for household ware, copper of every kind wherever found was removed. So were the stocks of ironmongers, hospital sup- plies, and officers' kits. Day and night gangs of soldiers were briskly stripping league after league of copper tele- graph wires from the poles. Church doors ) were flung open, and the-edifioes were crowded with weeping and praying Poles and among whom passed ministering priests in their gorgeous rotes, while aloft in the towenr huge bronze bells were wishing lest they be- came food for Krupp cannon later on. All church bells, archives, treasure, gem- studded ritualistic implements, screens, vest- ments, and ikons were carried over the Vis- tula and away to Russia. It is reported that the vault of the Church of the Holy Croes D Kravoski srteet was opened by chopping, and that the sacred heart preserved there wu re- moved to Moscow. The telephone exchange was disniiant-ed and dynamos supplying power to the street cars were removed, as were all wheels and detachable fittings of cars, to be taken to Russia. An crops around Warsaw were destroyed' when no troops could be spared to garner them Three Vistula bridges, including the new Praga bridge, more than a mile long and cost- ing tl,250,000 are lined with sandbags and wires arc set in readiness to explode land mines at the last moment before the Germans enter Warsaw. Beyound Brest Litovsk no civilian is allowed to journey. The evacuation of the towns be- tween Warsaw and Brest Litoovsk is begin- ning. and hardly 200,000 persons remain. Food costs ten times more than it did last month. There is no public water supply machinery, the operating pumps having been transported to Russia, and a typhoid epidemic is expected. More than 5.000 wounded' soldiers remain in the hospitals. Miss Kennedy, the only British subject left in Warsaw, is in hospit.al suffering from pleurisy. Personally I can see nothing but ultimate disaster for the Germans in their c-olossol operations against the ever-yielding but ever pressing hosts of the Czar.
Goodwick Sensation. MANSLAUGHTER VERDICT AGAINST HUSBAND. Mr W. L. Williams, coroner, held an inquest at Goodwick on Monday on Catherine Jane James (37), widow of David James, tandlord of the Rose and Crown Inn. Goodwick, who died on Saturday. The husband stated that last Tuesday night deceased was taken ill at the foot of the stairs while clad in night attire. He asked her what she was doing there, and she replied "I'm doing nothing." Deceased afterwards went upstairs, and later he followed. The deceased left her own bed and went into the servant's bed. On the following morning he went to the servant's bedroom and asked the deceased was she coming down to assist him in the bar, but receiving no reply said "Woll, stop there then." The next time he saw her was on Thursday, when he was called up by Dr Thomas, who said his wife was very ill. Asked by the Coroner why lie did not see her before. James replied that deceased had' stayed in bed many times previously owing to taking too much drink. Martha Harries, servant, said Mrs James died on Saturday night last. Deceased came to her bed on Tuesday night last at 12.15 and woke witness- up. Deceased somplained she had had cross words with her husband. Wit- ness noticed blood on deceased's nightdress, and she asked her what was paining her. Blood was coming from her nose and mouth. Deceased said she had pains in the head. Blood oozed out again, and deceased became unconscious. Questioned by Police Superintendent James witness admitted that when deceased came into her bed she said "I have been nearly half- killed." Dr Mortimer Thomas said lie was called in to see deceased on Wednesday morning last. He found her in a semi-conscious state. She gradually sank and died without regaining consciousness. 'He had conducted a post- mortem examination with Dr Owen. There were contusions on the right eye, and bruises on the right shoulder. The cause of death was hemorrhage on the brain due to injury, either by blow or fall. After deliberating in private for four hours, tlie jury returned a verdict of "Death from concussion of the brain ns the result of injuries received at the hands of her husband.' David James was thereupon arrested on a charge of manslaughter. Bail was granted, himself in £500 and two sureties of £ 250. -=--=
