THE STABBING CASE AT TIMARU.
(from our own correspondent.)
[by telegraph.] Timaru, To-day.
At the Magistrate’s Court this morning Patrick Clancy was charged, on remand, with unlawfully wounding Tim McAuliffe, the well-known amateur pedestrian, with a penknife. The evidence went to show that the prosecutor struck the first blow, and Clancy drew a knife and used it in self-defence. Mr Beetham. R.M., said he considered that McAuliffe had brought the assault on himself, and sympathised to some extent with Clancy. He could not say how far Clancy was justified, however, in using the knife in self-defence, and he must leave it for a jury to decide. The accused was then committed to stand his trial at the next sitting of the District Court. Bail was allowed, his own recognisances of LSO being accepted.
