THE BROUGHTON-DONNELLY VENDETTA.
WELLINGTON, November 4,
Mrs Donnelly and six Natives were arraigned at the Supreme Court this morning, before Chief Justico Prendergast, on a charge of forcible entry on the property of William Broughton at Omahu on the 21st March. Mr Cotterill and Mr Richmond appeared for the Crown. The accused were defended by Mr W. T. L. Travers and Mr M'Lean. The property was contained in the will of the late Renata Kawepo, and had not been through the Land Court. Mrs Donnelly and Brougbton were rival claimants. On the date in question the Donnelly party, to the number of fifty, lined up and charged the property, which was in the occupation of Broughton. The police, who were on the scene, having anticipated trouble, prevented the dwelling house being wrecked.
