DISTURBANCE AT GISBORNE
ONE MAN FINED.
(Peb United Pbess Association.) GISBORNE, January 2. James Blance, for wilfully damaging a pane of glass in connection with Thursday night's raid, was fined £3 and costs in the Police Court to-day. He was also charged with inciting other persons t6 break and enter, ana was fined £5 and costs.
The Magistrate said the attack on inoffensive citizens was most cowardly, and was certainly not the conduct of Britons. He had not for a moment thought that men in this town wonld have acted in this way. Hβ gave the community credit for better sense.
Proceedings against others are likely to follow.
