ASPORT I RO T A SPORT
￼ A/SPORT. ￼ RO? T A, SPORT. In another column appears a report of a meeting, addressed by Mr Swash, Executive Officer under the Road Transport Board. He makes a- final ap- peal to traders and vehicle owners to arrange a voluntary scheme for co-ordinating and conserving road transport. Attempts to effect this have been made for a considerable time, but apparently with- out the desired success, despite the fact that it ad- vantages the trader more than anyone else. The urgent need of such a is generally recog- nisd and the proposals set forth a.t many meetings convened for the purpose have been readily re- ceived, but, apparently when the arrangements come to be carried out they, for some reason or other, miscarry. The well laid voluntary schemes appear to "gang aft agley.v' We confess that we thought such schemes were working well in both Breeonshire and Radnorshire, but Mr Swash tells us that there is s-till an inordinate amount of over- lapping in delivery. Yet the posi.tion las 'far as the national need is concerned is no better but worse. Something must be done. There is a serious shortage of horse provender and the con- servation of petrol, for obvious reasons, is more necessary than ever. What is more to remember, this need will not end even if hostilities cease. The want ot? transport .will be felt for a long time to come. There is another aspect of the question. It is generally agreed Hit;). t the future will see 'the use of roads for commercial purposes made vastly more important. The up-keep of the roads should become a national charge but the foundations of an efficient organised service both for passenger and goods traffic could very well now be laid. At all events for tjtc present co-opoMtion and co-or- dination in this matter of tradesmen's transport are imperative. We do not know whether it can be voluntarily arranged. We hope it will be, but probably as in the case of the closing of shops, no result worth having will he reached unless resort is had to compulsory measures. In this case the Board tare vested with sufficient powers, if voluntar- ism fails. We agree with the resolution passed at the Hay meeting respecting the a buse of concessions given to motorists under the>v guise of "urgent business." There are probably many loopholes in the present regulations which make this possible and closer restrictions may help the police in bring- ing offenders to book.

C»LLftNT NG OFFICERS. I MEMORIAL SERVICE AT THE PRIORY CHURCH. I BRECON. There wa., a large congregation at the Priory Cilurch. Brecon, on Friday afternoon last (All Saints Day) when a memorial service was held to Capt. F. J. T. Dickinson and Lieut. Digby C. C. Dickinson, sons of Mr and Mrs F. D. Dickin.-on, of Aberyscir Court, Brecon. Both the gallant young officers belonged to the South W ales Bor- derers. The first named, who was 22 years of age, was killed iu action in the Doiran Valley, Salonika, on Sep- tember 17th 1918, and his brother, who was a year younger in age, fell in France on August 18th. )918. The troops from the Depot S.W.B. attended, and the band (under Bandmaster Fenner, L.R.C.M.), took part in the service. Among the congregation we noticed Mr and Mrs F. D. Dickinson arid Miss. Dickinson. Col. Geoffrey Raikes, D.S.O., Miss Haikes (Treberfydd), Col. J. Going. Mrs Going and Miss Going, Major Walker and officers of the Depot. Capt. Graystone, Lieut. C. H. de Winton. Capt. Guy Dobeli. Hon. Miss Duleie Bailey, Mr E. C. Maurice (rep resent ins :\lrs (; wynn,- 11 o1fcrd), The Mayor and Mayoress of Brecon Dlr W. F. Parry de Winton and the Hon. Mrs. de Winton). Captain Evans (Ffrwdgrech). Mis sBest, and Mrs Day, Miss Williams -and Miss Adelaide Williams (Penpont), Capt. and Mrs M. F. Thomas, Major Palmer, .Mrs Maybery, Mrs Fowler, M_rs Ashby, Rev. R. H. Chambers, Mr Le Bre-ei. Mr H. F. NN. Harries, Mrs Powell (Caedryssu). and a number of the county clergy. The officiating clergy were the Bishop of Swansea. Rev. J. Davies (Devynock), Rev. H. J. Church Jones. Rev. A. (iarnons W illiams, Rev. Hilary Lewis, and the Rev. Keble Williams. The band of the Borderers played Chopin's "Funeral March" as a voluntary, and the processional hymn was I "How bright those glorious spirits shine!" The opening sentences were said by the Rev. II. J. Church Jones, and Psahn 23 was chanted. The Lesson was read hy the Rev. A. (iarnons Williams and the collect for All Saints Day cud ,-pecial prayers followed. The TTymn before the address was The Saints of God their conflict past." The Bishop of Swansea gave the address, taking for his text Romans Xi\ S. There was no likelihood, said the Bishop, that they would ever forget the sai-rificeq. of the last four years. How could they ever forget the courage that had licen shown at heme when there had come news from the fronts, and how could they ever forget the heroism of those by whose deaths we lived? In these days, when the clouds were obviously lifting and there came hour by hour news of some fresh victory that brought nearer the hour of peace, how could tliey ever forget that they owed it to the men who had died? They had need to honollr- Those on Fame's eternal camping ground, Whose silent tents are spread And glory guards with honour round The bivouac of the dead. I They could as"e!"t their comradeship and one-tie,, with I those who had diwlT Death might hide, but in reality it did not divide, and they claimed their fellowship and companionship with those who had crossed the "narrow stream." There was real fellowship unbroken by the accident of death. The re-union which would take place when the troops came had; would only anticipate I by a little while the re-union^ with those who in this J war had passed within the veil. We liad our task. The Germans had lost the war, but they had not yet last the peace. If they could avoid it they did not intend doing so. Our first and most pressing task to-day was to see to it-for they owed it to those who had given their lives for freedom—that the world's freedom should not again be imperilled. The hymn. "For all the Saints who from their labours rest." followed, and with the congregation standing Mr Ernest Baker (the organist) played the "Dead March" in "Haul" accompanied by the drums of the band, the I effect being very impressive. The injunction "Let us praise God for those who have laid down their lives for King and Country; especially, for our Kinsfolk and Friends, and let us pray unto God that we may have grace to direct our lives after their good example: that this life ended we may be made partakers with them of the glorious Resurrection in the life Everlasting" was said by t-he Bishop, who also pro- nounced the Blessing, following which the "La,-t Poe-t," with band accompaniment, was sounded. The service concluded with the National Anthem.

THE ASSIZES I
THE ASSIZES. I BRECON" MAX SEXTEXCED FOR BIGAMY. I The winter assizes for the counties of Brecon and Rad- I nor were held at the Shire Hall, Brecon, on Tuesday. Mr Justice A. T. Lawrence, before ?peeing the Commis- ?ion' attended ?ervice at St. Mary'a Church. being ac- companied by the High Sheriff (Mr David Powell), his chaplain (Rev. H. J. Church Jones), the I'nder-Sheriff Dlr David T. Jeffreys), and the usual retinue of javeline men in charge of Deputy Chief Constable Stephen Jones. There was only one case for trial, namely, that in which .lame"" PritcharJ (44), a private in the Royal Mar- ine Labour Corps, 'Deal, formerly of Brecon, was charged with bigamy. Mr Lovat Fra-er (instructed by Mr Lewi* Jone.-) was for the prosecution. The facts of the case have already appeared in our columns. For the prosecution evidence wa" given t,hat defendant married Mary Ann Preece, a widow, at the Xeath Registry Office, in June. 1907, and they lived tD- gether until he joined the Army, four years ago. He visited his wife at Brecon on Several oeeasions, and in April last. Mrs Pritehard also drew separation allow- ance for some time. Two years last September, when stationed at Sketty with the fireek-riocks, defendant met Margaret Anne Lewi-, single woman, a cook in domestic service. He told her he was a widower. They kept coni- pany for 21 years, -and they were married in Christ- church Chapel, Bridgend, on the 30th March, 11)18. They lived together until ltdh April following, when he joined the Royal Marine Labour Corps at Deal. He was a col- lier when site married him. He told her his father, Thomas Pritehard, was an architect. She had not seen him since he re-joined the Army, but he had made allot- ments of his pay to her. Accused, in cross-examination of the fir-t witness Olrs Pritehard), and in his own evidence, suggested that the marriage at the registry office was not lawful. a" he was told by someone that it was not the registrar who had married them. His lordship: But here is the certificate of marriage signed I* Dd. Humphrey Jones, registrar. You lived with your wife for years afterwards? Prisoner: We. were always having disputes. His Lordship: That has nothing to do with it. A gocd many people marry and unfortunately baYt: dis- I putes. (Laughter). You suggest that this is a false I signature because somebody said he was not the man. Yet loll continued to live with the woman. If you thought you were not legally married why did you not take steps to become legally married. I Defendant said he had tried to get witnesses. His lordship called P.s. Evans (Brecon) and Warder I Stone (Swansea Prison) into the box and ascertained from them that every facility had been given defendant to get what witnesses he wanted. Mr Humphrey Jones, the registrar named, was now deceased. The jury without leaving the box returned a verdict of "guilty." His Lordship said prisoner had been found guilty of the .crime of bigamy upon evidence that no ^risible men eou!«1 doubt. He had made a number of suggestions which showed that he was a very tricky and dishonest ]>erson, and judging by his previous character that was the sort of thing one might expect. He had been con- victed by the justices six times. Two of these were serious, one for assaulting the police and the other for assaulting his own mother. Prisoner was just- the sort of man who was likely to commit ho(h offences. How- ever he had only got to punish him for the crime of bigamy. It was a crime that was ju4 now rampant. He sentenced prisoner to twelve calendar months with hard laobur. I I
