Licensing and Criminal Business
   The Hon. the Recorder, K.C., took up the criminal and licensing business of the above sessions yesterday. On the Bench with his Honor were:—The Lord Mayor and the City High Sheriff.
   The following Grand Jury was sworn:—Messrs. Edward Riordan (foreman), Michael Young, Martin Dalton, Alfred E. Edwards, Lawson Ferguson, William Roche, Patrick F. Scanlan, Robert H. Marsh, John Daly, Cleevehill; Michael Ryan, Adelaide Terrace; James Hayes, Merchants Quay; Wm. Heaslip, Wm. O'Donoghue.
   Addressing the Jury, the Recorder said there were only five cases to go before them. One was a case of obtaining the unemployment grant by false pretences, and there was another case against two men of malicious injury to property, consisting of the smashing of furniture in a house. These were two of the five, and the other three were ordinary larcenies. The cases were all of a class with which they had been in the habit of dealing and they would find no complexity about them, but as there were only thirteen jurors sworn it would be necessary on the back of the bills for the foreman and the other jurors to sign their names.
   The Grand Jury then retired, and mean time the long panel was called over.
   Transfers and confirmation of licenses were granted to the following, there being no opposition:—
   Margaret Ahern, 17, Devonshire street; William John Cahill, 16, Prince's street; Nannie Carey, 25, North Main street; Joseph Fitzgerald, 1, O'Connell street (new license); Francis Harrington, 42 Shandon street; Catherine Hay, 28, Parnell Place; Kate Heffernan, 37 Bandon road; Briget Hegarty, 49 Commons road; James Henchy, 40 and 41, Wellington rd.; Norah Kelly, 21 Dominic street; Margaret Lennox, 354, Blarney street; Philip J. Lynch, 16 Prince's street; William J. Markham, 21, 22, 23, Prince's street; Agnes Murphy, 30, King street; Annie O'Leary, 56 Blarney street; Julia O'Regan, 145 Sunday's Well road; Ellen O'Sullivan, 68, Barrack street; Margaret O'Sullivan, 26, Commons road; Michael O'Sullivan, 9 Moore street; Norah Seacy, 41, Thomas Davis street.

(Before Messrs. R. F. Starkie, R.M., presiding; M. J. O'Riordan, T.C.; John Cosgrove, Thomas Andrews, S. Perry).
   Mary Dunworth, against whom there were 171 convictions, was charged by Constable Walsh with having been drunk and disorderly. She was disorderly by using bad language.
   The bench ordered that the defendant be imprisoned for a calendar month, and also ordered that she find bails, herself in £5 and two sureties of £2 10s each, in default two months' imprisonment.
   Mary Buckley, 6, Paul's avenue, was charged on the sworn information of Hannah Raymond with having assaulted her and blackened both her eyes on Tuesday night.
   Complainant said the accused came behind her, tore her by the head, and beat her. The only provocation that she could think of was that she (complainant) gave a man, whom she believed was complainant's cousin, two months' in gaol recently.
   The defence was a denial of the assault and an allegation that complainant was the aggressor.
   The bench imposed a fine of 40s, one third of the penalty to go to Mrs. Raymond. She was also ordered to find bails, herself in £5 and two sureties of £2 10s, in default a month's imprisonment.
   Roger Cooney, 7, Kyrl's quay, was summoned by Sergeant Fitzgerald for having a dangerous dog in his possession. A complain was made to him by Mr. Hamilton Fox that he had been bitten by the dog, and he found the animal on the street, not under proper control. Defendant's daughter was there, but in order to get the dog taken in he had to go to the house for someone.
   Mr. Fox said he was cycling when the dog followed him. He went faster and faster, but could not get away from the dog, and was bitten on the calf of the leg. He had to go to the chemist's and get cauterised.
   Mr. Starkie—Had you seen the dog before?
   Witness said not. Very fortunately it was his first acquaintance. He would not like to meet him again.
   The magistrates ordered that the dog be destroyed.
   Margaret Kelleher, 33 Mary street, who was summoned at the suit of District Inspector McDonagh for having failed to display a price list of certain goods which she sold in her shop was fined 10s with costs.

   At Old Street Police Court, London, Alice Lerskovitch, an elderly married woman, of Bethnal Green, appeared to answer two summonses for pretending to tell fortunes by means of cards.
   One woman, who gave evidence, said she paid the defendant sixpence. To reach defendant's room she had to go up two flights of stairs, and people were sitting all along them waiting their turn to consult defendant. Some of the persons were girls from 14 to 15 years of age. Witness had to wait an hour. Defendant took up a pack of cards and having cut them, said there was going to be a wedding, and witness should be careful whom she married. Witness said she was married and was separated from her husband.
   Defendant, who gave evidence in Yiddish, denied that she had seen the witness or that she possessed a pack of cards.
   Witnesses for the defendant stated that no persons were at the house to have their fortunes told on the night referred to.
   Defendant was fined £17, with three guineas costs, on summons—£40 6s in all.

At an early hour last Tuesday morning the residence of Mr. Ed. J. Aherne was visited by a number of police from Midleton and Castlemartyr, and a thorough search of the house was made by them, but without any result in discovering arms, ammunition, or incriminating documents. Mr. Aherne himself was subjected to a personal search by the police on the occasion, as was also his brother Maurice Aherne, who lives in the same house. The visit was a most unexpected one, and caused much surprise, and the search was a pretty exhaustive though futile one, lasting for over an hour, the premises being subjected to much overhauling.
