John HERBERT, Wainui, was charged by Alice MACFARLANE with having assaulted her at Wainui on 8 Oct. The complainant worked for HERBERT as a cook.The complainant alleged that HERBERT had caught her by the throat, threw her down, kicked her on the hip, scratched her face and made it bleed. She threatened HERBERT with a knife if he attempted to strike her again. She said she was not drunk but had been drinking gin all day. She also stated that when HERBERT had her down Mrs HERBERT called out to her husband to " kick her Jack, she's down'.
The evidence of Mr HERBERT, his wife and William MITCHELL went to show that Mrs MACFARLANE was drunk and used very bad language on the day of the alleged assault. Mr HERBERT had given her a weeks notice and had requested that she go to her bedroom. As she got more abusive HERBERT had to force her into the bedroom. She also threw some crockeryware at Mrs HERBERT. Capt PREECE stated that as Mrs MACFARLANE had no witnesses to support her and it was found that she was very drunk at the time he would dismiss the case without costs. At the same time he thought that the evidence did not show very creditable scenes in a public house on a Sunday

ERIATARA had later signed another deed of conveyance with M'KAY. M'KAY stating that the first deed with JOHNSON was signed when ERIATARA was a minor. A number of witnesses were called and the evidence was very conflicting. The case was not concluded when the court adjourned.
