Margaret Jones Sworn says I am a Widow and live in
Bakehouse Lane - I remember something happening in the morning
of yesterday week- I remember a great riot here - it was in the morning
part - it was about breakfast time - I did not go a step out of my
House that morning not a step, the woman of the House whose name
is Mary Jones was also in the House - I saw a man with a wounded
arm coming into the house that morning. I was in the Room with
him when he came in there is only one room down stairs - he
said nothing when he came in - I did not know him - Mary
Jones
did not appear to know him - he was strange to us - In
about an hour or more another man came in I don't know
particular, I did not know the second man that came in -
he said nothing only go and ask the young man with the
wounded Arm how he did feel himself - the wounded man scarcely
able to give an answer said "very bad" they did not appear to
know each other as far as I did understand - the second man
that came in sat down - All that happened was the Policeman
came in he asked the second man to let him search his pockets
he did so- the Policeman searched that man - I saw the
Policeman take nothing but a Card - I did not read it but
I heard the Policeman say "Ebbw Vale" he appeared to be reading
the Card when he said so - it was a Card something like the
one now produced - the Policeman then went to the door - he
had two of the Spears in his hand and the Card, they were in his
hand when he come in - I should not know the man the
Policeman took away from the house - I should not know
his clothes - I could not tell punctual the Prisoner is the
Man.
