The Cork Examiner, 2 July 1881
(Before Messrs. A. Mitchell, R.M., F. Cade, and M. Honan.)
DANIEL CONNELL and Mary M'Namara were put forward by Constable M'Neill charged with assaulting Mary Sullivan on the night of the 28th inst. The assault occurred in one of the militia rows at Blackpool, and as the injuries to the woman were not of a serious nature, their worships discharged the prisoners, directing a summons to be issued.

Leonard O'Brien summoned Max. Gotberg for assault. Mr. A. Blake appeared on behalf of the plaintiff, and said he was a Polish Jew. Mr. Mitchell—I never knew a Pole to be an O'Brien before. Mr. A. Blake, in reply, said Ireland could not claim the O'Briens. Poland owned at least one of them in the complainant.

Mr Blake then said on the 21st June complainant was standing alongside a friend of his in Market street, near the Bazaar Market ; the defendant was selling room paper, and first offering what he had for 5s, and came down from this sum to 4s 6d, 2s 6d, and subsequently to 3d. The complainant seeing it going so cheap offered him, half in joke, a penny. The defendant got indignant, rushed at him, and gave him a violent blow in the chest. The complainant, being a very delicate lad, suffered severely from the effects of it, and now wanted to punish him for his conduct.

The Complainant, before being examined, refused to be sworn on the testament, and produced a Hebrew bible, which he said was the second book of Moses, and, with his hat on, was sworn. He then detailed the circumstances which were detailed by Mr Blake. Two other Jews named Harris Erlman and Harris Sheroshipski also proved to the assault.

Mr Mitchell asked Mr Blake had he any other witnesses to examine. Mr Blake said that he had another Jew named Daniel Mahony (laughter). Mr Mitchell said that was rather a curious name for one. Mahony, on being examined said he was not a Jew ; he was born in Blarney street (laughter), and that he heard the complainant call the defendant a process server and that he had three wives. Mr Blake said as regards the number he was under the mark (laughter). The witness continued, said defendant got annoyed with the complainant, and only shoved him.

Gotberg had a cross case against O'Brien for assault and injuring his papers. The Bench dismissed the cross cases, and imposed a fine on Gotberg for assault, of 5s, and 5s costs.

Dublin, Friday
Yesterday Walter and John Phelan, on of whom had been tried for the murder of Mr Boyd, and acquited, and John Phelan, who was awaiting trial on a similar charge, were discharged from custody, Mr Murphy, Q C, on behalf of the Crown, stating that this was the course decided on. He did not state what were the further intentions of the Crown.

QUEENSTOWN PETTY SESSIONS — Yesterday, before W D Seymour, J N Beamish and W R Starkle, R M. The Rev Jeremiah Murphy applied to have two children, named Lily Nunan, aged seven years, and Grace Warburton, aged twelve years, admitted into an industrial school. Father Murphy proved that the children were destitute, that they begged from and received alms from him on the 30th June, and on other occassions. The justices made an order to have both children admitted, as they considered they were very fit subjects. Sub-constable Hilan summoned a woman named Mary Alfred whom he described as a perfect nuisance for being drunk and disorderly. She is constantly following passengers and strangers, giving them a good deal of annoyance. She carries on this system of prosecution under cover of selling shamrocks. Not appearing, she was fined 10s and costs, in default seven days. Jeremiah Hurley, a car-driver, was charged by Sub-constable Ward with drunkenness. He pleaded guilty and was fined 5s and costs. —Adjourned.
MALLOW LITERARY SOCIETY--On Thursday evening the Rev J D Sexton delivered a lecture in the Ball Room of the Queen's Arms Hotel, under the auspices of the above society, the subject being "The Life and Writings of Clarence Mangan." The proceeds of the lecture were devoted for the purchasing of a piano for the society. The rev. lecturer received a cordial vote of thanks for his brilliant discourse. I understand his lordship, the Most Rev Dr M'Carthy, has appointed Father Sexton to collect in the "Far off city of the west" in aid of the Queenstown Cathedral.

BUTTEVANT LAND LEAGUE.—At the last meeting of the members of the league, it was unanimously resolved, that in future, they would not employ any hired reaping machine, as long as the labourers of the district were out of employment.—Mallow Correspondent.

POISONING OF HOUNDS.—I regret very much to learn that a number of the Timoleague harriers were found poisoned yesterday. The hounds were kept by parties in the village, and it was extremely pitiful to witness their agonies. Some fourteen good dogs have been lost. There can be no doubt the act was malicious.—Bandon Correspondent.

THE CONSTABULARY.—Sub-Inspector Creagh, of Mallow, has been removed from Mallow to Midleton. While stationed here he was deservedly liked both by the men of the force as well as to the general public, who much regret his removal, and carries with him to his new sphere of duties the best wishes of the people of Mallow.—Correspondent.

Kanturk, Friday Evening
On Wednesday, the 29th, an enormous crowd of people assembled in Ballingarry, county of Limerick. A Government reporter was present. The following resolution was adopted :—"That we recognise the unity of interests existing between the occupier and the tiller of the soil, and we pledge ourselves to joint action in support of the Parnell policy." The resolution was supported by Mr Johnson.

Kanturk, Friday Evening
Great excitement was caused in Millstreet last evening by the presence in the main street of the town of a bailiff named Daveron, who was immediately set upon by the people, hooted, and booed down the street. The violence of the crowd increased so much that Daveron was compelled to seek refuge in the police barrack. He was unable to get a lodging. His business was to serve a writ.

ANTI-RENT DEMONSTRATION AT BROADFORD—Convenient to this place, and near to the residence of the well-known Mr. H D Spread, a number of disguised men, a few nights ago, went into the houses of James Vaughan and others, warning them not to pay any rent to the above-named gentleman. As it was expected that the bailiffs would come her on Thursday to execute decrees against three of his Broadford tenantry, a large number of people assembled, and, contrary to their expectation, none of them arrived save Mrs Spread, who was groaned, hissed, and whistled as she passed through the streets. A man in this locality named John Sheehy, known by his privacy of life as well as other peculiar qualities, sympathised with her, and did his utmost to console her in her awkward position. The people got incensed towards him at seeing this, and would have thrown him into an adjacent quarry had it not been for his exhortations, promising them that never again would he speak to her or do anything of a like nature.—Correspondent.

TENDERING THE FULL RENT.—Some of the most independent tenants on the estate of The O'Donovan, Lissard, Skibbereen, waited on him a few days since and tendered him their full rents, when, to their agreeable surprise, they were returned one fourth of it again. This land is let at a comparatively moderate rent, yet The O'Donovan has invariably given liberal reductions to his tenantry, in addition to building excellent houses for them.—Correspondent.

The Cork Examiner, 4 July 1881
Mr L Stack, PLG, in the chair. Others present— P J Tatton, Messrs John Moore, PLG ; James Power, hon sec ; John Barry, P O'Brien, J O'Brien, T O'Sullivan, P Moore, N Murnane, Denis Ahearn, P Shea, James Barry, Patrick Cahill, J Cronin, M Keeffe, P M Moore, M Egan. J G Keating, E Quirk, and P Hennessy.

A communication was read from Daniel M'Carthy, Knocknagriffin, expressing sorrow that he went against the Land League by taking some land contrary to the wishes of the league. He was not aware that the league would have objected to his taking it, and now that he found he was holding the land against their wishes he would give it up. The explanation was considered satisfactory.

Mr Power announced that it was decided by the committee that a deputation of the Midleton Land League should wait on the Town Commissioners in order to ascertain their views respecting whether the Land League fair should be held in the town or outside.

It was announced that Mr John Moore had on the previous evening given £3 to his two labourers, and £1 to the Land League on the strength of having a reduction of 20 per cent from his landlord, which amounted to £5. The announcement was received with applause.

Mr Keating said that all farmers should act similarly under like circumstances. He had made a notice of motion to that effect on the previous evening. It would do no harm if all the farmers acted like Messrs Moore, Buckley, and Walsh in that respect.

Mr Power observed that the Midleton Land League fair, which is to be held on the second Monday of every month, would be advertised in the newspapers; and notices would be posted in the district concerning the day. Adjourned.

The usual weekly meeting of the Clonakilty Board of Guardians was held on Friday. Mr Thomas Donovan, Vice Chairman, presided.

When the minutes of the previous meeting were being read in reference to the Timoleague National schools, Dr Brodie said he visited these schools some time since. The privies were then in a disgraceful condition. He was down on last Wednesday. They were in such a bad state, they were a disgrace to any civilised country. He was about making a special report recommending that the grants would be at once withdrawn without further delay, but was informed by Mr Travers that he was in communication with the bishop, Dr Fitzgerald, and had offered a site for new schools on any part of his property. The bishop would take the matter in hands. Unless some arrangement was made the schools would have to be closed up.

The fixing of the area taxation for the proposed waterworks in Rosscarbery was then considered, the estimate cost of which will amount to £620, the trustees of the Carbery estates consenting to pay one third of the expenses. Mr Hungerford said these waterworks would be of enormous advantage to the inhabitants of Rosscarbery. The shopkeepers and people having families in Ross would save £5 or £6 a year, as they now had to keep an extra servant or pay for drawing water to their houses.

It was proposed by Mr Hungerford, seconded by Mr Hayes, and carried unanimously:—"That one-third of the cost of the waterworks be charged on the electoral division (Cregg townland excepted), one-third on the town of Rosscarbery, and one-third paid by the trustees of the Carbery estates."

A resolution proposed by Mr Hayes and seconded by Mr P Donovan, was carried unanimously—"That the best thanks of the board be given to the Rev Arthur Hyde, of Castle Hyde, for accepting Griffith's valuation from his tenants in the parish of Rosscarbery for the rents due in September and March."

Mr Barry gave notice of motion for this day fortnight to have the graveyard at Rosscarbery walled in, and a committee appointed to take specifications and give and estimate of the cost of the proposed work.—Correspondent.

Mr. Creaghe applied on behalf of a woman named Buckley for expenses to enable herself and her family to emigrate to America. The chairman condemned the system of paying out of the rates money to persons for emigration purposes, and thought the Board of Guardians had enough to do beside turning the board-room into an emigration office. He considered the people were leaving the country fast enough. Mr Hutch considered the ratepayers have enough to do to manage at present to pay their rates. After some further discussion on the subject the board were unanimous in rejecting the application.
