Prohibited Hours.William Jones, Wenallt Arms, Tregaron, was charged by Mr Superintendent Lloyd with having kept open his house until 10.51 on the 12th July. Defendant was represented by his wife. P.S. Phillips stated that at four minutes before eleven on the 12th July he went to the Wenallt Arms. The door was locked, but he obtained admission after knocking. He entered the house and asked Mrs Jones if there was anyone in the house. She answered "No." He then went into the cellar struck a match, and found Enoch Davies, Pengraigfawr. and John Evans, Pentre. hiding among the casks. Mrs Jones afterwards said to them, "You shall not leave here to-night." The men replied "No, we are going now," but Mrs Jones locked the door and refused to allow them. Mrs Jones, for the defence, said there was a wedding that day and she had gone to Pontrhydfendigaed. Coming back in a waggonette, however, it broke down, and as she could not walk fast, when she returned home she found Enoch Davies in the house. He asked to have a bed there that night and both he and the other remained in the house as lodgers all night. They had nothing to drink. Enoch Davies was afraid of his master coming, and she was much confused when she returned to the kitchen and found that the men had gone into the cellar. The Bench thought the charge had been proved and fined defendant 10s. and ordered him to pay costs.
