(Before Messrs G. P. Farquhar and G Fenwick, J.P.s.)

Obscene Language. —Harry Conn was charged on the information of John Lynch with using obscene language at South Dunedin on the 31st ult. Mr A, C. Hanlon appeared for accused, who pleaded guilty. Counsel said that there was a quarrel between accused and another young man, nd the words were used during the pro gress of the row. Accused had got into trouble previously, and, in consequence of his former good behaviour, had been released on probation by His Honor. —Gaoler Phillips said that accused had not been in the habit of reporting himself, under the terms of his probation license, but otherwise he was conducting himself very fairly.—The Bench said accused would be convicted and ordered to come up for sentence when called on. They hoped that the present case would prove a warning to him, and that he would conduct himself properly in the future.
