STONEGINGER OR BEER
STONE-GINGER OR BEER? LICENCING PROSECUTION AT CARMARTHEN. CASE DISMISSED. ,At the Oarmairthen Borough Police Court Itll Monday, Sarah Davies, licensee of the Blue Boar Inn, Water-street, was charged with selling intoxicating drink during pro- hibitive hours in contravention at the Liquor Control Order to Thomas Trumper, clerk in the remount offices, lodging in Parcmain-street. Mr. W. J. Wallis-Joncs appeared to prosecute for the polile, and Mr. T. Howell Davies defended. The magistrates on the bench were the Mayor, and Messrs. T. Bland Davies, Jas. Davies, and J. B. Arthur. Mr. W. J. Wallis-Jones, ui opening, said the police had acted very fairly and patiently in enforcing the order. They had not acted in a hasty manner in bringing casea before the bench, but a reasonable time had now elapsed, and the ordeír was well known to everyone, because it had been in force since May 8th. It would be ad- mitted by the police that in the main the publicans in the town had complied with tho order loyally, and it was only fair to them that tlioee who did not comply with ■ne order should be prosecuted. P.O. David George Morgan said that on Saturday evening, the 15th inst., he was on /.plain dothe duty. About 10.15 p.m. he; visited the Blue Boar, Water-street, kept by Sarah Davies. On going towards the front door he saw two men there talking to the landlady. Tho door was half open, and it was held so by thel landlady. He men- tioned his name to the landlady. She hesitated before allowing him to pass, and called out in .a loud voihe, Gertie, P.C. Morgan. She then left the door open and hurriied back into the passage. He followed her. At the end of the passage he was met by Gertie, thte daughter. When she saw him. she turned round sharply and hur- ried towards the back room at the rear of the premised. He followed her closely. Whilst she was entering this room. witness ■eard her saying the word "Police." Just an ho got into the room, he stopped to watch what was going to happen next. He saw Gertie, still in a 'hurry, go to the tablp on the right and pick up a glass which was close to a man who was sitting down. She then came back towards witness and tried to brush pags him. He said to her "Wait, what have you got in your hand behind your back?" At the same time he stretched his arm around her and took the glass out of her hand. He examined it and focnd it was a half-pint, and that it con- tained beer which appeared to him to have been freshly drawn. There was no light in the room only wlijat wa.g reflected from the window and; through the door. By this time the landlady had entered the room and witness said to her, "How do you ac- count for serving this man with beer at thia time of the nisrht?" Mr. Walilis-Jones—Before she answered did anything happen?—Before this conver- sation the gas war, turned orn. Continuing-, witness said that the landlady replied, He has not had anything here." Witness then showed her the glass of beer he had in his band, and said to her. "What about this glass I saw your daughter take off the table close to him?" She replied, "It ls been there since nine o'clock. I am innocent." Witness then spoke to the man and asked him for his name and ad- dress. He gave it as Thomas Trumper, clerk in the remount offices at the barracks, lod f?iaig! in Parcmain-street. Witness asked him fro account for being on the premises drinking- that time of night. 11;1'. Davies objected to the witness read- ing out of his book without first of all knowing when the report was written. Witness said he wrote 'out the report im- mediately afterwards. Proceeding with his (tvideiiee, he sftid tlbat Trumper replied, I Jii'.ve- not had anything here. I have ordered stone-pop.' I have only just come in." Witness then said to the daughter Gertie. How do you account for rushing and taking this glass from off the table?" She answered, I knew It was there. I did not want the men to get into a bother." Witness then said to her "Why did you call out 'Police' to them?" She re- plied, I did not." He took possession of the beer and told tine landlady that. the mat- ter would be reported. Witness added that there was another man in the room on ano- ther table with a ^tone-ginger before him. Croffs-examiined by Mr. Dairies, witness said the beer was at the police-station. Mr. Davies said he wanted to have a look at itt. The Mayor—It must be sour now. Mr. Davies. Mr. Dtvics-I would not like to taste it. oss- feplyijig to further questions, said he was a teetotaller. He did not know much about beer, but he knew a little. about it.be-,ause he had sat down in publio- houses and had tasted it." Would you know the difference between beer freshly drawn and long standing?—I don't know, but I miigtht know by looking at it. Witness said there was a little froth on the beer. Mr. Davies—Did you use a microscope?— Xo. there* was a little froth there. I put, it to you that the. beer was staJe. having been drawn about nine o'clock, and that there was no froth on it?-There was froth there. Witness explained that the two men he raw talking to Mrs. Davies by the door appeared to be halif drunk and they did not enter the premises. At this staige the -beer was brought into court and was examined by the benoh, and the magistrates' clerk, who after smelling it, remarked. Oh, it's all right. It's quite strong." (Laughter). Mr. Davies (to the witness)—Will you swoar that the people in the house are stating a deliberate untruth when rtiey say that they did not hear the word "Police" being uttered by the daughter? Witness said that the persong in the house must havio heard the daughter say Police." Sarah Davies, licensee of the Blue Boar. said that about 10 p.m. Mr. Thomas, the bakjetr, called in tfor a stone-jar. Mr. Trumper then oame in and called for a "stone-pop" and he went into ltihe room where Mr. Thomas was. Before she had time to serve him, two men knocked the door. and as she thought they were drinkers she told tihem it was after time and tha.t she oould not serve them. Whilst she was taJking to them at the door P.C. Morgan oame on. There was no truth in P.C. Morgan's state- ment that she had hesitated before opening the door. When P.C. Morgan came in she said to thje daughter, "P.C. Morgan," and he ran towards her daughter and took the glass from her. No one had been served, with anything after 9 o'clock. P.C. Morgan told Mr. Trumper, I don't believe you guilty. I beilieve every word you say, Mr. Trumper gave his name and address without bning aslked for it, and Volunteered to go down to the (police station to explain and remarked, I must see your boss about this." Cross-examined by Mr. Wallis-Jones, witness said that P.C. Morgan's evidence was untrue. The beer in the half-pint on the table was flat, and there was no froth on it, Gertrude Muriel Davies, daughter of the licensee, said that just before nine o'ekxsk. ?he servedl Wm. Thomas, the mason, with a glass of beer. When the clock struck nine, she told him to hurry up and drink the beer, and he re- marked, What is this you have given me. It is not the same beer as I have had pre- vious." She told him it. was a fresh.tap, ind she Mt him. About 10 o'lock. Mr. rhomas. the baker, came in and asked for a it one-jar. He went into the back kitchen. Whilst she was in the bar she heard Mr. rrumper cull for a stone-pop, and he went :0 Mr. Thomas in the back kitchen. Her nother went to the front door and refused ;o serve some men who wanted beer. She ;hen heard her mother say P.C. Morgan," and witness suddenly remembered that she had not cleared the glass aifter the cus- tomer wilio was served before nine o'cJook. She went to do so, because she did not wish any suspicion to fall on the two gentlemen in the house whom she knew had not been served with intoxicating drink. She told P.G. Morgan that the beer did not belong to the men in the house and commenced to explain to him, when he said, I don't wish to ispeak to you; yiour mother is the licensee." Later he said, Now, Miss Davies, what have you got to say. Be fair to me as I will be fair to you." She told him she would' be fair and ■gave him the explanation which she 'had given now. Mr. J. B. Arthur—Is it customary for a man to pay for beer and then leave such a large quantity behind in the glass ?-Some leave a glass half full sometimes. Wm. John Thomas, a baker, 27 St. David's-street. who was at the Blue Boer at the time, said he was supplied with a stone- jar. Mr. Trumper entered, but he was not supplied with anything. He had called for a. stone-]ar. The beer found on the table was absolutely flat and dead," and there was no froth on it. Thomas Ti-timper," clerlc at the remount department. snid he called at the Blue Boar about 10.15 and ordered a stone-pop. He wtas not supplied with any intoxicating drmk. corroborated the last witnesses. \\7m. Thomas, mason, T'homas's-oiacr Lamma's-street, said he was at the Blue"Boar from about 7.30 till 9 p.m. The last d-rint- was supplied to him a few minutes before nine, and he asked Miss Davi what was the matter with the beer. She said. It is fiiesh tap, and as he did not like it lie left tasted™ 8 went out, having only just Mr. WaHis-Jones-Did you, ask for your monevy back?-No. And you have not had a drink instead of it sineee-No. The Mayor said the bench thought P.C.

KIDWELLY On Wednesday in last week. Mr. David Lewis died at his residence, Croft-terrace, after a long and painful illness. aged 72. He was an old and trusted ,ervant of the Kid- welly Tinplate Company, by whom he had been engaged for many years as superinten- dent of the tin-house. He was a staunch Baptist, and a. deacon at Siloam Chapel. He was ,also a Sunday School teacher, and the scholars of h 131 class walked in the funeral procession on Saturday last as a token of thetir desep regard for their es- teemed friend and instructor. There was a large and representative attendance at the funeral, and many friends accom- panied the remains all the way to Llan- gennech, where the interment took place. The coffin, of unpolished oak with silver fittings, was conveyed by road, and de- posited in the. family grave in Salem Baptist Churchyard. The Rev. H. R. Jones offi- ciated at the house, and also at the grave- side, whore he was assisted by the Rev. Al- fred Morris, LlangennecK The chief mourners w^ereMr. Arthur Lewis and Miss Anita Lewis. Kidwelly (son and daugh- ter); Mrs. John Griffiths, Gorscinon (daugh- ter); Mr. and Mrs. Harry James, Llan- fieiuieth (son-in-law and daughter); Mr. and Mrs. Jack Lewis. Penllergaer (son and cl,t tig -in-law); Mrs. W. B. Thomas, Bar- jfoed (daughter). 'There were several more distant relatives also present. Many beauti- ful floral tributes were sent by relatives and friends. Deep sympathy i extended to the sorrowing children in their sad bereavement. Throughout Sunday last and on Monday (fveuing, anniversary services were held at Capel Sul (Irid.). the Rev. J. Phillips, Moun- tain Ash. being the special preacher. The meetings were well attended, and sermons were delivered by Mr. Phillips. The sing- ing was bright and hearty, and the festival was a great success. Very satisfactory col- lections were realised. The sympathy of the town is extended to the Rev. H. 'R Jones. Siloam. in the bereavement he has sustained by the death on Friday last, in North Waler, of his aged father. One of those senseless and cruel rumours which now and again are put into dircula- tion by some mysterious agencv, gained cur- rency on lyri
Reading Room is to be a success the money should be handed over. So far the olH, ,I- mitte.e have refused to have anything to j with ithe new. I suppose the Council is such a bad lot that they won't have am-thin to do with them.—The Clerk: Their thinst for knowledfge will make them t in tlnie.The appointments of trca--L!v,, secretary were confirmed, and the ecu,, cillors present signified their intention o. becoming members uf ihe Reading Room. r The Sanitary and Highways Commiibtoa reported having had under consideration an application from the roadmen and haulier for an increase of Is. per day in wages.— The committee recommended that an addi- tional '2s. per week be granttx! as :ti jonus, the increase to apply to the Surveyor as ililor as to the applicants. —Councilor Henry Wilkin-s in moving the adoption of the report called attention to the unsatisia-otory attendance of members at both council and committee inentinigs. There were onlv giix present that night out of a total of sixteen. There was some excuse for the poor attend- ance a,t the last meeting, as hay-making was in progress, but it was notorious that the same few looked after the business of the- town at all the meetings. It wa.s a disgrace that sometimes they had to wait kalf-an- hour for the attendance of sufficient mem- bers to form a quorum, and he was going te. press for the publication of the attendances of membws before the November elections. Certain people were loud in proclaiming what, they were doing for the town, while they left the business to be carried on by a faithful few. Probably these same gentle- men would make a fuss about the increase bonus if it was carried that night, wheretlB tihev ah011 Id be present to take part in the discussion. Councillor Cole seconded' and said: Thciy will be better off when the elec- tion comes. as they have said and done, nothing. We are the men who do the work. I expect I shall be at the bottom of the poll* but I shall fight. The report was adopted.— The Clerk was instructed to write tiher County Council inviting- an application for the use of the water which they were using at Bolahaul without the i>erm:ssion of the- Corporation. At the suggestion of the Board of Trade ai J District Coal and Coke Committee was formed with a view to assisting the Board to obtain information to enable provision to be made for the requirements of the town in the matter of supply of fuel. The increased demand df the Navy and Army for coal ren- (IF,red it imperative that the "distribution of u fuel should be controlled, and coal mer- chants were requested to furnish particulars relating to the quantities used in the year preceding the outbreak of war, and the- approximate requirements for the coming winter.—The C-lekrk said that three out of the five local merchants had already fur- nished him with the particulars asked for. It looked as if the supply was to be re- stricted.—Councillor Henry Wilkins said the committee should bear in mind that the- population of Kidwelly was considerably higher now than it was in 1914. If the quantity of coal allowed to aolliers bv the LIT" ooal-owners were reduced it would be. equivalent to a reduction in wages.—Th& 1 Clerk pointed out that the Council did not want to restrict anybody's supply.-Couu- cillor Cole: There is something at the root. j of thit;The; Clerk: The only thing is that your benefioient Government do not want you to have too much nor too little ooal.— The committee was formed of the members present at the meeting.
r BABY COBURN. Thought He would not live 29, Dryden Road, Dear Sirs, Fleetwood. Enclosed you will find photo of our baby-boy, eleven months old. Up to baing three months old he was small and puny, and never ceased crying. We had a most trying time with him and he looked so bad we were ashamed of anyone seeing him, those who did see him declared he would not live. So, after trying various foode- some very expensive-we decided to try Virol, and from the first feed he improved; he took to Virol straight away and Virol took to him, with the result you see. He has thrived and grown bigger than babies that were twice his size when he was three months old. He isjust starting to walk, his flesh is solid and firm and very good bone. Virol is not like a lot of foods that put a lot of flabby flesh on, we are convinced it is a bone grower and flesh former.—Yours sincerely, FLORRIE COBURM.
