He found defendant very drunk in Carmarthen street. Llandilo, on Saturday the 7th October at 10.30 p.m. His friends took him away. The defendant did not appear.—Fined 7s 6d. John Jones was charged with being drunk at the Great TV estern Station on Sunday last by P.C. Walters.—Defendant pleaded guilty. He said he had been five weeks before that without touching the drink.-Fined 15s 6d. J. Lewis was charged with being drunk.— P.C. John homas stated that at 10.20 p.m. on the 23rd ult he saw defendant very drunk in Bank terrace, Llandilo, and using very bad language. He was by the Nag's Head at the time.—Defendant said he was only talking to friends when the policeman came on. He ought to be allowed to go about the road like any- body else. He denied being drunk.—Fined lUs NO RED BACK LIGHT. Hy. Walker was charged wiwth on the 19th September driving a cart without having a red light to the rear.—The Constable said it was 10.45 in the evening. He spoke to defen- dant who said he was employed by Mr Morris. Golden Grove. He had no lamp to put there and knew it was not necessary, but there was a red light at the back of the other lamps.— Fined 2s d. A HORSE CASE. J. Richard Jones v. Ren dell.—Mr Edmunds Llandilo appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Morris. Swansea, for the defendant. Mr Edmunds in opening his case said a horse had strayed on his client's field. He had failed in every way to induce the defendant to take the horse away. Ultimately after having been on his client's field for 12 weeks it was taken. His client claimed a reasonable amount for the provision of the horse. There was no pound in the district in which to place it. He asked the bench for an order forthwith. J. R. Jones, Pantglas Farm. Llanarthney said that on the 17th of July last he returned from the mart and found two horses on the field. He asked his neighbour if they were his. He said no, and witness reported' the matter to the police. One man came and took one of the horses away. The other said he could not take the horse away then as there was no one to shoe it. Afterwards the man accused him of working the horse. He had never done so. —Mr Edmunds said that he could not get the defendant to take any action whatever to re- move the horse.—By Mr Morris He reported the horse before the end of the week. It was not correct that it was 14 days later.—Mr .ffid- munds said in any case it would have nothing to do with it whatever, t was untrue that he told the man he worked the horse because the police told him. Neither did he tell the son. There was a small injury to the eye. but h" could not help it and knew nothing about it. He did not inspect the horse. It would not surprise him to find there was shoes on before. The man asked how the hoofs had gone. There was nothing the matter except that the horse was not shod.—By Mr H. Jones-Thomas: The other man paid him eight shillings for the two weeks the horse was there. D. Morris, New Park, Golden Grove, farmer said lie saw the mare in question. His brother had lost ponies and he went to Pantglas to see if they were his brothers. Every time he saw the mare she was perfectly fit and had im- proved wonderfully.—By Mr Morris: She had improved in flesh. There was no wound on the horse when he saw it. T. Griffiths, Glanadwr, Llanarthney. said he saw the horses on the road in July. He saw nothing wrong on them and he had seen them since every day.—By Mr Morris: He did not notice the shoes and did not think of doing so. —By Mr H. Jones-Thomas: Neither of the horses was lame. For the defence Air Morris urged it was only part of a larger action. If the animal was worked the man who worked it was liable to an action. The defendant should have brought a counter-claim and not come there that day. He was taking advantage of a summary method. If the bench mde an order they in- cidentally decided there was no case for tres- pass in the other action. It would put his client in a very awkward position. The case should be adjourned until the County Court action had been heard. He dealt with a lot of correspondence on the question. He should not have given the horse up until his claim had been made. He called for the diefnee, Wm. Render. Gorseinon, who said he lost the mare on the 15th of July. He advertised the loss and informed the police. His son discovered the horse and went to Llanarthney. It was about 14 days after. He went there iin a while and inspected the mare on the 17th of August. He could see there was something wrong in her eve. He said lie had heard she had been injured. Her eyebrow was broken, her legs cut and bruised. He said lie could do nothing in a fortnight. He heard a lot of her ill-treatment. He went down seven times to see her and dressed her. Several people had seen her ridden. He had been laid up with influenza and could do nothing for some time.—Col. Lloyd said that if they adjourned the case the defendant must pay the cost.—Mr Morris said it would be very unfair if his client had to do it.—(Mr Porter said that the defendant had had the summons on Tuesday last.—Mr Morris: Do you agree to have the case adjourned and pay the costs?— Defendant: That is for you to say (laughter). —Mr Edmunds said that his client had seen the defendant's son there that day, and it was for his appearance the case was to be ad- journed.—Mr Morris, New Park, said that a Mr Stubbins had seen the defendant's son in town that day.—Adjourned on payment of costs.
A Long War
A Long War. MR LLOYD GEORGE AND MAN POWER. On Report on the Vote of Credit of 1:300,000,000 in the House of Commons on the 12th inst., Mr J. Dillon (N., Mayo) regretted that the Prime Minister had said nothing to give the people of Roumania. in this hour of their desperate danger and trial, some assurance that the utmost resources of this country would be ustd to rescue them from the fate which had already overcome Serbia. There were sinister rumours current that the British War Office did not look with a favourable eye on the Salonika expedition. Was there a i struggle going on behind the scenes, as a re- suit of which the Salonika expedition wag being starved and weakened? Mr Llewelyn Williams (R., Carmarthen Boroughs) urged that the House should be given the exact figures as to the man-power of the country. The two Military Service Acts had apparently broken down. Mr Lloyd George referring to various points j dealt with in the debate said that the Govern- ment were fully alive to the necessity of givinb every support to the gallant armies of Rou- j mania in th very vicious attack upon them. Ho had already expressed his opinion on Cle question of to whom the crefli^ for the 'tank' I was due, but lie would add that Mr Tennysm D'Evncourt (the Chief Naval Constructor), Sir Maurice Hankey, Colonel Churchill, Colonel Swinton, and Co!. Stern, had given invaluable aid. There was no doubt at all about the available reserves of the man-power of tl':3! country, but they had to get at them. Mr V> Llewelyn Williams had spoken of the break- down of the Military Service Acts. He was wrong. The Acts had already produced a con- siderable number of men. They were not »t the end of the fertility of the Acts. The tri- bunals had exempted a great many men tem- porarily. Those periods of exemption were coming to an end and more men would be brought in. The Acts had provided forces without which it would have been impossible to carry on the war. Surely that was a justi fication for them (cheers). The exemptions certainly were far too numerous (hear, hear). The Government were convinced of that, and they were dealing with it. If he were to give the number of exemptions the House would be startled. When they compered the exemp- tions here with those given in Franc. ud Italy, both democratic countries, they foumd that they ran into hundreds of thousandis :n those countries they ran into millions here. Mr Llewelyn Williams: They haven't to And the money. Mr Lloyd George: This has nothing to do with money. There is no doubt at all that the exemptions are far too numerous. We belief the exemptions can be dealt with under- the powers we have got in the two Acts, but if these powers are not sufficient the Government will take counsel with the House of Coflfcttioni as to the steps which should be taken. We had to base our operations upon plans for a war lasting over a prolonged period. That is the only way to ensure victory (cheers).
Mr Hughep Was Right I
Mr Hughep Was Right I "He has given to the nation just the tonic that was needed," said Mr Bonar Law. en the occasion of the farewell banquet to Mr Hughes, the now famous Australian Premier. Mr Bonar Law was. of course, referring to the series of forceful and inspiring speeches which Mr Hughes had delivered during his tour in this country. "Now a tonic," said the Minister for the Colonies, "though sometimee nasty is always useful." Most people will agree with that statement, and also that the best stomach and liver tonic is Mother Sei gel's Syrup. This it has been proved to be by tens of thousands of one-time sufferers from Ziges- tirve troubles. Indigestion, biliousness, flatu- lence, pains after eating, acidity, constipation, and the like are all signs that your stomach, liver and boweis are not doing their work effi- ciently. If you are not feeling up to the mark, lacking the snap and vim you once had, pro- bably all you need is the help of a really effi- cient stomach and liver tonic, such as Mother Seigel's Syrup, to tone up and strengthen these organs to healthy activity. For nearly fifty years this famous remedy has been used with wonderful success as a. ready mean§ of banishing and preventing the distressing sym- toms which arise from a disordered state of the principal organs of digestion. This is the secret 1 of its long standing, world-wide reputation!
Farmers and Butter Prices
Farmers and Butter Prices. ALLEGED RUSE TO. GAI BIG PBOFiTH. Some farmers are storing butter, hoping that it will rise in price to 2s 6d per lb. This was disclosed at a meeting of jhe Aber- ayron District Tribunal on Thursday, when the Chairman (Mr Price) expressed gratifica- tion that the Government had decided to take over the wheat supply, and said he trusted that it would also take control of tho meat. supply. Profits, he said, were too high. The same applied to butter. Some farmers stored butter, stating that they would keep it until it was 2s 6d per lb. The. Chairman also said he had heard of cases where farmers counselled their servants to remain with them, giving the impression that they would be safe, with the result that the servants stayed for £2 or L3 less wages. He thought it ought to be made quite clear that a conditional certificate was granted to & servant on the clear understanding that he continued in the same occupation, not neces- sarily at the same farm.
End Not in Sight
End Not in Sight.! MR BONAR LAW O-N THE PRICE OF VICTORY. The Cotonial Secretary, Mr Bonar Law, presided at the House of Commons on the 12th inst. at a luncheon given by the Empire Parliamentary Association to Mr W. r. Massey (Prime Minister of New Zealand) and Sir Joseph Ward (Finance Minister of New Zealand). Mr Bonar Law proposed the toast of "New Zealand and the War." In the cocrse of his speech he said :— "When the history of this war comes to be written in my belief, in spite of the many failures and mistakes, the marvel will be the way in which the British Empire organised itself for war (cheers. We see proof of it in the magnifioent army which is fightiny our battles in France to-day. We are tquallinp our enemies and more than equalling them in war material, and we always beat them in the quality of our men. The end is not in sight. It may be a long way off, but the tide has turned, a-nd of the result there is. and can be, no doubt. Person- ally. I always hated war. and I hate it morn than ever after what I have seen of it during the last two years. W hat we are thinking of chiefly is not the glorious victories, but the price which is being paid for them. We ere thinking of the desolate homes, of mourners who are going about the streets. "But the anguish is no reason for relaxing our efforts. It is another call to go on till the end is achieved. What is it we are fight- ing for That question- is easily answered. We are fighting for peace—peace now and security for peace in time to come. That is what we are fighting for, and we shall have this war unless we make it certain that never again shall it be in the power of one man or group of men to turn the world into the charnal house which exists to-day (oheerB).

| LAUGHARNE. f At a public meeting held in the Township Schools, Laugharnno, on Friday night, the Portreeve (Mr W. E. Edwards) presented Master Alfred Jackson, son of Mr David Jack- son, Holloway, with the Royal Humane Society's honorary testimonial on vellum for gallantly going to the rescue of his cousin, who was in imminent danger of drowning in the Laugharne river on August 11th last.
