The story of a young typist's elopement with a young married man , who it was alleged posed as a single man in comfortable circumstances, was recalled at the Barry Police-court on Monday when Frank CRIDGE, of Birmingham applied for the varation of an order for payments of 20s. a week made against him in favour of Ellen Mackenzie, Cadoxton, Barry; in March last, in respect to her illegitimate child. Applicant based his application on the grounds of insufficiant means. He was married and had one child. Replying to Mr. Harold LLOYD,who represented the girl, applicant said that both he and the defendant were employed at Messrs. Cook's Tours Office, Cardiff, before they went away together. He admitted that he had sent her no money due to her under the terms of the order. Dr.P.J. O'DONNELL, stating that the order would be reduced to 15s. per week, said that the girl should have been paid from the beginning. Mr. LLOYD, asked the applicant be committed to prison
until the debt to the girl has been paid. CRIDGE was committed to prison for a month.
