"The Cyprian"

December 7th  1881 

Gwalia re Cyprian.

A weekly Newspaper for the service of every class of the Welsh people.

At Pwllheli Magistrates court on Wednesday, before Mr Lloyd Edwards and the other magistrates a number of cases were brought before them of stealing goods from the cargo of the ship Cyprian.

Mr Pritchard (Messers Hughes & Pritchard) Bangor brought about the prosecution on behalf of the Board of Trade.

Richard Williams and Owen Jones, two farmers living in Llaniestyn were each fined 10 plus costs.

The defendants had given false names and Williams threatened a policeman with a piece of wood.

Griffith Parry, a farm labourer was also accused, but no evidence was found and the charge was dismissed.

Catherine Williams and Anne Hughes Edern were each fined 10/-. Anne Hughes, a child, was released on payment and costs.

Mr Edwards said that he had received a threatening letter in regards to this case, but said that he had acted upon it in the manner in which was appropriate to a letter of this nature. He said he had not felt in anyway threatened and dealt with the case according to his duty. If other similar cases were brought before the magistrates in the future, then they would not hesitate to send them before the assizes to stand trial.
