Dosing a Bailiff. — A lively story comes from Gisborne. E. ff. Ward, jun., solicitor, 0. W. Flexman, J.P., and four other persons have been committed for trial at the Supreme Court for riotously taking possession of premises on Sunday week and assaulting William Cappell. Cappell was the bailitf in possession under a writ for £369, and on Sunday morning Flexman invited him to take a glass of whisky, which he did, and was soon seized with violent pains. While Cappell was away, Flexman nailed up the house and shut him out. Cappell then brought up two men to try to effect an entrance but Ward came over with men to the number of nine in twos and throes at intervals. One of Cappell’s men was struck with a stick, and he himself was pushed down, and the whole of them were ejected by force from the ground. Cappell accuses Flexman of having drugged him.
