|POLICE OFFICE—THIS DAY
(Before Col. WOOD, Captain TOOKER,
and Messrs. CLERY and ORME, R.M.)
|THREE men, named respectively Cooke, Hall, and
Callaghan, appeared to answer a summons issued by Mr. Delea, inspector at the
hide crane, on the part of the committee of merchants, under the following
Mr. Blake, who appeared for the committee of merchants, stated
the case. He said that the hide crane is a market for the sale of hides, and
that, to direct the countrymen who come in to sell, a list of the current prices
of the day is kept posted up on the walls. The prisoners are in the habit of
hovering around the doors of the market waylaying poor countrymen before they
can see the list of prices, and purchasing their hides from them at a rate far
lower than the proper one. There was one instance, about a week since, in which
one of the prisoners purchased a cwt. of skins for 16s. which were worth 36s.
What he (Mr. Blake) feared was that Mr. Delea would be compelled to have
recourse to force, to expel these men. If he did so they would probably resist,
and a row would ensue ; and, under these circumstances, he would ask their
worships to bind the defendants over to keep the peace. He might add that this
was not the first time these men were before the court.
Mr. Tooker said that he would wish to see on what grounds they
could bind these men to the peace.
Mr. Blake contended that the magistrates are fully justified
in binding to the peace any persons distrubing a public fair or market.
After some further discussion it was decided on examining Mr.
Delea, who fully corroborated the statement made by Mr. Blake.
The Magistrates after a few minutes spent in consultation
decided that there was no case against the prisoners, which could justify them
in binding to the peace.
Mr. Blake then called upon the Bench, to warn the prisoners
not to go near the market any more.
Mr. Tooker said he and his brother magistrates should refuse
Mr. Blake's application.
John Shea who had been remanded on a previous occasion was
again put forward, on a charge of stealing a flitch of bacon from the shop of
Mr. Buckley, North Main-street.
Mr. Buckley deposed to having missed the flitch on last
Saturday evening, and to its being returned to him on the Sunday following.
William James Thompson deposed to having seen the prisoner
leave Mr. Buckley's shop on Saturday with the flitch in his arms. His suspicions
were aroused and he went into the shop and asked Mr. Buckley did he sell Shea
any bacon. Mr. Buckley said he did not and information was then given to the
The man who brought back the bacon having proved he received
it from Shea's sister, informations were ordered against him.
Anthony Moore who had been charged with desertion on yesterday
on yesterday at 3 o'clock was put forward, the attestation paper having been
Mr. Orme said that the bench had determined on inflicting a
severe penalty, owing to the great trouble caused by the prisoner's obstinate
denial of his guilt on yesterday. They would accordingly sentence him to a fine
of £4 or in default four months' imprisonment.
