Amorous Rivals at Lampeter. B John Jenkins, mason, of Tynewydd, Llanwenog, and Daniel Thomas, farmer, of Rhiw-son-ucha, were summoned at Lampeter police court by John Griffiths, of Penbwlchmawr, for assaulting him on the 14th inst. From the evidence tendered, it appeared that a quarrel ensued between the parties respecting a Llanwenog young lady, named Hannah Davies, as to who should accompany her home from the Llanwenog fair held that day. Defendant-Daniel Thomas-sent, through defendant Jenkins, to the young lady, Hannah Davies, who was in the parlour of the Tynyporth Inn, to ask her to come out to him, which she did. But she afterwards returned to John Griffiths, and as the latter appeared to be first favourite she went home in his company. A scuffle shortly after wards took place between the two parties, when the complainant was kicked by Jenkins on the nose and over the left eye, and also assaulted by Daniel Thomas.-Jenkins was fined £1 and costs and bound to keep the peace for six months, and Thomas was fined 2s 6d and costs.
