ASHBURTON—THURSDAY. [Before Mr C. A.'Wray, R.M.] A HINDS CASE. John Logan was charged with using threating language to Thomas Holmes on 29th June, arid application was made for the defendant to be bound over to keep the peace. There was a further charge of trespass, inasmuch as Logan was alleged to have refused to leave complainant's house when ordered to do so. —Mr Wild" ing appeared for complainant and Mr Cuthbertson for defendant. Thomas Holmes, D. Terras, William Price, and Charles Boomer gave evidence m support of the charges. Mr Cuthbertson called Paul Haines for the defence, and the defendant also gave evidence. The alleged quarrel arose out of a visit paid on a Sunday afternoon to Holmes' place by Logan and Haines which culminated m a scrimmage between the plaintiff and defendant. It was after this row that the alleged threats were made and the bad language used. Defendant denied all the charges m toto, and counsel left the case m the hands of the Bench, who considered the case proved, and ordered the defendant to find sureties for £10 to keep the peace, and to pay the costs m the case, and for the bad language fined him 10s. CIVIL CASES. H. Ward v Alexander, claim £26 13s 6d. —Adjourned for a week. Steel v McMullen, claim £I,—balance of an account for harness and horseshoeing. Judgment for plaintiff. This was all the business.
