HBH 1892 Nov 1 p3 Police Transfers

I regret to inform your readers that HASTINGS will tomorrow lose the services of Constable WILSON, who for the past seven years has assisted Sergeant PICKERING in the maintenance of law of and order.

During that period has always done his duty zealously without fear or favour, and with a tact which, while enforcing the law, has avoided what might otherwise have resulted in a breach of the peace.

He will tomorrow leave for KUMARA, where he will take charge of a police station. He leaves many friends who wish him well, and (I think) no enemies. His successor will I believe, be Constable GORDON, from AUCKLAND.

A serious accident occurred here this afternoon. As far as I can ascertain the particulars are as follows: -

An up-country dray was at the railway siding, where it had just been unloaded of a load of wool. One of the leaders which had been detached took fright at the shunting of the train and bolted across the railway crossing in the direction of Havelock. Mr William GRAY, who was on a horse, tried to stop the runaway, but while he was doing so the horse in the dray dashed along and ran one of the shafts into the flank of Mr GRAY'S horse, inflicting such injuries that the poor animal subsequently bled to death.

Mr GRAY was thrown violently to the ground, but managed to get to Mr BEECROFT'S Hotel, where he was put to bed and received every attention.

I am happy to state that his injuries are not serious. The dray was ultimately stopped in the Havelock Road.

Waipawa Court

This morning at the Resident Magistrate's Court, before Messrs S. JOHNSTON and INGLIS, justices.

A boy of 16 or 17 named Roderick M'KENZIE, was charged with breaking into a cottage tenanted by Mr R. HARDING'S ploughman on Saturday night, and stealing a pair of boots and 5s in money, the property of John DUNN. - Remanded till Wednesday

Richard POOLE-charged with being drunk and disorderly and using grossly obscene language on the street, and evidence was given that he was turned out of the Settler's Arms twice. The Bench pointed out that he had twice before been convicted on similar offences and the punishment did him no good. He was fined ?1 with 2s costs or 14 days on the first charge, and sentenced to two months on the second, in all two and a half months.

A young fellow, who walked by the aid of two sticks, named George W. CROSS, was arrested this afternoon and brought before the Court on a charge of absenting himself from his work as an apprentice to G.W.BEER, cabinetmaker, NAPIER. It appears that the young fellow was suffering from an affection of the legs, and had for some weeks been an inmate of the Napier Hospital. As he was improving Dr. MENZIES gave him a certificate recommending a month's change of air in the country, and on the strength of this the boy joined his sister and her husband and came on here. He was remanded on the application of the police till tomorrow, at the Resident Magistrate's court Napier.

Roderick M'KENZIE charged with breaking and entering a cottage occupied by John DUNN. DUNN is a ploughman working on Mr HARDING'S land, hard by his cottage. He gave information to the police, and from some indications Constable BETTIE concluded that the prisoner was the culprit, an impression that was not lessened by the fact that the young fellow carefully avoided him and hid himself away.

HBH 1892 Nov 4

The unfortunate man Charles CLARK, who accident is reported elsewhere, is the second son of Mr Charles CLARK, a farmer and very old settler in the Kaikora district. The unfortunate young fellow is 22 years of age, and was only shifted from Kaikora to Napier station about a fortnight ago. He never lost consciousness after the accident till chloroform was administered at the hospital, and was able to converse on his way there, although suffering intense pain.

CLARK ACCIDENT

A young man named Charles CLARK, assistant porter at the Napier Railway station, met with a shocking accident last evening, just after the 6 o'clock train for Hastings left the station. Some trucks had to be shunted and Clark was helping in the work and while passing in front of some moving trucks to get round the other side of them, he tripped on the metals and fell.

The foremost truck passed over his right leg and his left foot and the former was shockingly shattered, and the heel of his left foot was taken off. Constable CREEKS, who was on duty at the station, at once ran over to where the injured man was lying, and with two handkerchiefs put an effectual tourniquet on each leg, thus preventing the rapid loss of blood that would otherwise have ensured.

Dr. INNES was sent for, and upon arrival, finding that effectual tourniquets were effectually applied, ordered CLARK to be at once removed to the hospital and went up with him. Upon arrival it was found necessary to amputate the poor fellow's right leg and his left foot just above the ankle. This was done, and at a late hour last night the unfortunate sufferer was reported to be doing as well as could be expected under the circumstances.

ANDREW and BUSHNELL

Mrs Elizabeth ANDREW, M.A., and Dr. Kate BUSHNELL, who are accredited delegates from the American Women's Christian Temperance Union, will lecture in Napier on Saturday and Sunday evening in the Athenaeum. Both ladies are clever speakers and trained scholars, who have been remarkably successful in America and in the Australasian colonies.

A man named Thomas HIGHAM very seriously assaulted his wife yesterday morning. It appears that the parties have not been living very comfortably of late, and on Wednesday Mrs HIGHAM obtained a protection order against him at the R M Court.

At about 5 o'clock yesterday morning he went to the house where his wife resides in Miller Street, and made strenuous efforts to get in. Failing to do so he went away and returned again later about 11 o'clock, and finding the door open he went in. He sat for a little time quietly, occasionally speaking to a couple of neighbors who were in the house. Taking advantage of an opportunity he butted his head forcibly into his wife's face, knocking her down senseless.

HIGHAM cleared out at once and Constable O'CONNOR was soon in the house, and found the woman in a swoon, and almost pulse less. He applied remedial measures and sent for Dr. CARO, who upon examination found that Mrs HIGHAM'S nose was badly fractured and that she was suffering severely from shock. She is now progressing favourably. HIGHAM has not yet been arrested.

Mr L BINNIE has parted with his interest in the Puketapu Hotel to Mr W.E.ROSE, late of the Masonic.

At the R M Court yesterday, before Messrs F.SUTTON and J. H. VAUTIER, J.P'S

Catherine QUINN on remand for curative treatment in consequence of suffering from mania due to drink was brought up to plead to a charge of drunkenness. She was discharged on condition that she paid 12s cost of her treatment in gaol, and 2s Court costs.

Ovide MUSIN, the violinist, contrived to play a rather cruel trick upon the omniscient critics of the Melbourne morning papers. His first concert was rather thinly attended, and each of those clever persons assured him through the medium of the organs of public opinion which they enliven that the reason of public apathy was that he did not play the so-called "classical" music, for which, according to their account, the concert-goers hunger and thirst. So he put up a job one night, a "Caprice de Concert" of his own composition, a showy, tuneful thing, intended merely to display the rapidity of his fingering. This he repeated the next night, credititing it to Wieniawaki, and calling it a mazurka. The critics did not recognise it, but they accepted it as a good specimen of that composer's style, and discoursed learnedly about its characteristic peculiarities. The third night he passed off the same piece as the work of Raff, and the fourth night put it down to Leonard, and so on!
throughout the whole of his seven concerts, each night playing the same piece without the slightest alteration, and each night changing its name and giving it a new technical appellation. The result proved than none of the critics knew a cavatina from a mazurka, and when Musin's agent, M. Fabien FERRAUD, told them plainly how they had been fooled, after his principal had left, their despair and outrage were pretty to behold.

Court
A case of insubordination on the part of seamen was heard at the R M Court yesterday, before Messrs F, SUTTON and J H VAUTIER J.P's, when five sailors named:

Thomas FOX
George MARTIN
Archibald FURNANE
Frank KEILLY or KELLY
John COLLINS

All charged with refusing to obey the lawful commands of the captain of the barque Victoria Nyanzs at present in the bay. Mr HUMPHRIES appeared in support of the information and from the evidence it appeared that the five men were engaged in Dunedin for the trip to England at ?6 per month, an advance of ?3 per month being made. They refused to work as soon as they got on board, alleging that the water was bad. ........more........still refused to work and ship had to be navigate from Port Chalmers to Napier by only half a crew, the captain (Captain FELLOWES) foolishly took the law into his own hands by purring the malcontents on bread and water...........more....they were arrested after Captain FELLOWES lodged a complaint. The Bench though the case a gross one. If the defendants had a complaint there was a proper mode of applying for a remedy. To refuse to work and thus imperil the safety of the ship was a very serious offence, and defendants would be sentenced to six week's!
hard labor. Authority was given to Captain FELLOWES to take any or all the defendants on board the ship if he chose to do so, when ready to sail.

We yesterday described the arrest of an old offender named MILLER, for threatening to burn down the residence of Mr John CLOSE. It was shown that there were 29 convictions against him, and that he had been in prison for the greater portion of his life since the year 1877. He was sentenced to three months' hard labor for using obscene language, and ordered to fined two sureties in ?50 each to keep the peace for six months, in default to be imprisoned for the same period.

HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS
The High School Boys had a splendid afternoon for their sports on Saturday, and a goodly number of spectators were present to witness the various contests. The seventeen events on the programme were got off with great promptitude, and there were excellent finishes to all, a fact reflecting great credit on the handicappers.

Mr WOOD acted as starter, ably assisted by Mr F.FRASER, while Messrs P.S. M'LEAN, PIERCE, C.D.KENNEDY, PINKNEY, CULTON, and E.RUDMAN acted as judges.

The most successful boy of the day was W.G.WOOD, who won the School Cup (three distances) and the two long distance races, the latter from scratch, and in both instances beating large fields. HESLOP and THOMPSON were second and third respectively in the Cup, while THOMPSON succeeded in annexing both the jumping events.

The Old Boys' Challenge Cup for the highest aggregate points (to be won three years before becoming any boy's property) will also be held by W.G.WOOD for the ensuing year, he having scored 20 points. Of the other boys SEVERNE'S jumping was much admired. He was however, beaten by a handicap.

A word should be said for A.RICHARDSON, a boy of 13, who after winning the Half mile race for boys under 14, ran most gamely in the Mile (open), leading into the straight, and spurting with WOOD right up to the tape, finishing a fine second.

Afternoon tea was provided for the visitors by Mrs WOOD, assisted by a bevy of young ladies, and this item was much appreciated. The prizes were presented to the successful boys at the conclusion of the sports by Mrs WOOD.

The following gave prizes or donations towards the prize fund:-
Mesdames: RICHARDSON, WOOD, MARGOLIOUTH, CLARKE

Napier Juniors V. County Juniors

This match was completed at Hastings on Saturday, and resulted in a win for the County by 23 runs. The Napier team were handicapped in having to play two men short, JAMIESON and HILL being absent.

CHRISTIAN arrests at GISBORNE
Per United Press Association
GISBORNE-Saturday

Sergeant-Major MOORE and Constable NORMAN yesterday afternoon arrested at Patutahi a family of Spanish-Maori half-castes named CHRISTIAN.

Two young women, aged about 22 and 20, named Bella and Horiana CHRISTIAN are charged with the murder of Lena CHRISTIAN, the sister of the accused, who had given birth about July 31 to an illegitimate child.

Lena CHRISTIAN and Charles CHRISTIAN (father of the young woman) were arrested on the charge of accessories to the murder. The police dug out of a hole the body of an infant much decomposed. These people were brought before Mr BOOTH, R.M at Court this morning.

Rawiri CHRISTIAN, brother of the girls gave evidence that on July 31st Lena CHRISTIAN had given birth to a child. On the instruction of his father he dug a hole and Horiana placed the body in it. He asserted that the child was still-born.

In order to allow the prisoners to instruct counsel, the case was here adjourned till Tuesday.

HBH 1892 Nov 23

William KEENE, the passenger who committed suicide on the Doric on her last homeward voyage, was well known in WELLINGTON, having been for a considerable time in the service of Mr G.E. JANSON, grocer of Cuba Street.

He came out to the colony about six years ago, and remained for about three years in PATEA, an assistant to Mr GIBBS, grocer.

Last year he went home to visit his father, who carried on a large grocery business at Notting Hill, LONDON, returning to the colony by the Ionic on her last trip out.

He was apparently not seeking employment, as he declined an offer of an engagement by Mr JANSON. KEENE was always a devout young man, and the act of suicide is supposed to have been committed under the influence of religious mania - Post.

Mr A M'INTYRE, who has been carrying the Puketitiri mails for the past two years, has again secured the contract, this time for a bi-weekly service which should prove a great convenience for settlers in the district, especially as the mailman will run a coach as heretofore.

Mr T.WATERWORTH, borough road overseer, has put into practice a useful plan for getting rid of dead carcases washed up on the beach. He makes a hole in the carcase, pours in a quantity of resultant spirit from his system of distilling tar for use on the pavements, lights the spirit, and in about half an hour the carcase is consumed.

We were shown yesterday a very large and handsome mirror and the frame is made entirely of New Zealand woods, is very striking and ornamental in design, and excellent craftsmanship. It was designed and manufactured by Mr T.J. DURNEY, of Hastings Street, who is to be complimented for turning out one of the finest pieces of work of the kind which we have seen.

The carcase of a horse which was washed up on the beach near Mr RUDMAN'S house has caused a shocking stench which annoys the nostrils of persons who go along the Beach Road. The Hawke's Bay County Council gave ten shillings to pay for getting the carcase buried. The money was not sufficient to pay for a proper job, and the man who got the cash dug as much grave and gave as much interment as was possible at the price. It is a noisome illustration of the proverb which refers to things being "cheap and nasty."

Waipawa news

His remains will be removed to Auckland for interment.

From Mr W. ANDERSON, Taradale, thanking the whole of the hospital staff for their kindness to the writer's daughter, who had died in the hospital. There was a feeling abroad, he said, that there was a deal of heartlessness at the hospital, and the sooner that was dispelled the better. He therefore, as a result of his own experience, wished to convey his heartfelt thanks of the kind treatment his daughter had received.-It was decided to place the letter in the visitor's book.

William SYMS

***Abridged by Elaine


ALLEGED ABORTION-WOODVILLE-Wednesday

At the R.M. Court this morning the charge against William Syms was resumed.

Dr. MENZIES, of the NAPIER Hospitak was called, and stated that he had examined Mrs HALL previous to her visiting Syms. On the facts stated to have been given in evidence an illegal operation had been performed, and there could be no other explanation….more…the witness was examined in great length by Mr EDWARDS…

His Worship said that when Mrs HALL came before him the medical men who examined her reported that she was rather a subject for the hospital than the asylum.

Dr. MENZIES said that the dread of being concerned in the prosecution would account for Mrs HALL'S mental anxiety.

Mr HAGGEN, journalist gave evidence that in investigating the case he was shown by Dr. MILNE, in the handwriting of the accused, a prescription alleged to have been given to Mrs HALL, also a preparation exhibited in the window of accused's shop.

He also received from Dr. DAVENPORT a written statement of the case, stating what Mrs HALL had told him and the result of his examination, and that he had then reported the matter to the police. He wrote the article for which he was imprisoned for libel.

Dr REED gave evidence as to having examined Mrs HALL in May at the Waipukurau Hospital. …more

A large number of cricketers met last night at the Masonic Hotel to bid farewell to Mr C.R.SMITH, one of Hawke's Bay's most prominent cricketers, and until lately secretary of the association, and who is leaving the district for Christchurch.

Mr E.H. WILLIAMS, the president of the association, presided and in a neat speech referred most eulogistically to the services which Mr SMITH had rendered to Hawke's Bay cricket, and on behalf of the association presented him with an address, and announced that there had also been ordered for presentation to Mr SMITH a cricket bag and material. Several other members of the association and prominent cricketers having spoken, wishing Mr and Mrs SMITH, God-speed, his health was drunk with musical honors, and Mr SMITH feelingly responded.

There is no doubt that Hawke's Bay Cricket will suffer considerably through Mr SMITH'S departure, and Canterbury is to be congratulated on securing so good a bowler and energetic all round cricketer.

The N.Z. RIFLE Association meeting at Wellington will include quite a number of visitors from the other colonies. Auckland will, as usual send a strong contingent, including the champion, Sergeant DOUGHTY.
At the R.M.Court yesterday-before Mr TURNBULL R.M.

Frederick GORRY and John DONOVAN pleaded guilty to drunkenness and were each discharged with a caution.

James HUPTON alias UPTON, fined £1 and costs for drunkenness

Gerald DOWLING, against which there were several convictions, and who was described by the police as one of the most notorious blackguards in town, was fined £2 and costs for being drunk and disorderly.

Mr HENN, so well known as an able and courteous servant to the public in the post-office, leaves the Government service today. He has been forced to retire, on the ground that he is too old to remain in the service.

Those who believe that he is the victim of a plan to remove capable officers, to make chances for promotion for supporters of the Ministry or for friends of such supporters are, of course, depraved people. (But there are a good many of them in NAPIER.)

Makotuku correspondent writes under Thursday's date: "Yesterday a most successful Sunday-school picnic was held on the estate of Mrs FRIBERG. Prizes won by the children during the year were presented by the Rev. T. WILLIS.

Mr FRIBERG spoke a few words with reference to the work of the past year, and complimented the teachers upon their work and energy.

Prizes were exceptionally good, owing to the success of the social which was recently held for the prize fund. At the close of the distribution cheers were given for the teachers, Mrs FRIBERG, and the Rev. T. WILLIS.

On this the last night of the old year, the customary watch night service will be held in the Trinity Church and the offertory will be devoted to a most deserving charity, namely, the Rev. Dr. Bowman STEPHENSON'S Homes, Bonner-road, LONDON.

The following teams have been selected to play for the Hawke's Bay county Club against PAHIATUA, at HASTINGS on the 4th of January, 1893:

**NB by Elaine-it didn't state the sport but I presume it was cricket after seeing some of the revered names.

A large fire is now burning in Mr SIDEY'S bush, having spread from an adjoining section. It is rather early for burning at Mr SIDEY'S, and it was his intention to have waited another month at least. The wind is still in the direction of the fallen bush."
