Hi (Per Press Association.) Mastbeton, November 12. A Chamber of Commerce has been formed here. Charles Stratford, a horse trainer, was charged at the Police Court to-day with aggravated assault on his wife. The case was dismissed, the evidence for the defence being that complainant's injuries were received in a struggle with her mother. Both women had been drinking. " Broncho George" was charged with having ill-treated a bullock and cow at a Wild West show by lassooing and riding them. The Magistrate said the exhibition was cruel and unnecessary. No, good object was served, and the animals had been driven frantic by pain and fear. He inflicted a fine of forty shillings, and refused an application to have the fine raised to five pounds, to enable an appeal to the Supreme Court to be made. Ciiristchurch, November 14.
