Defendant pleaded guilty, and said he thought it was very hard, seeing he kept them clean, and had gone to the expense of £4 10s, to make a drain down to Mwldan River.Mr W Woodward I suppose you do not wish to press the case.The Town Clerk No, sir, but Mr Thomas had been noticed many times, and every opportunity bad been given him to remove the pigs and could not say he had been unduly treated. Notice had been served him in January, and it was only after be was actually served with the summons that the pigs were re- moved. The penalty was £ 5 and 40s for every day the pigs were kept after the summons, but they did not wish it taken as a continued offence.-Mr Lewis Evans said there were a great number of other nuisances in the town which the Sanitary Inspector should see to, and said he should carry out his duties without fear, favour, or illwill.-The Town Clerk replied that the Inspector gave information and it was not his fault that no action was taken.Defendant was fined 2s 6d and costs, when tendering the money he asked who had complained about him, but received no answer.
