ASHBTJBTON—MONDAY. (Before Messrs D. Shea Lawlor and Alfred Harrison, J.P.s) 'DEUNKENNESS, &C.—A SHABP SENTENCE. ' Bernard Cullen, charged "with having been drunk on Saturday night, and -with resisting the police in the execution of their duty, received the somewhat'heavy sentence of three months' imprisonment. The short, facts of-.the case are that on Saturday night 1 Cullen was lying asleep by the- roadside in Cass street. Constable McGill woke him up and arrested him for drunkenness, whereupon Cullen became very violent, and it required all the efforts of the constable and Constable Fitzgerald to handcuff him and take him to the Police Station. The Bench seemed to look upon the matter as very serious, and fined him £20, with the alternative of I three months in gaol. Of course the alternative had to be accepted. < •John Jack was fined 5s or 24 hours in gaol for drunkenness, and a first offender was dismissed with a caution.
