The Assistant-judge, in ordering the con viction to be affirmed, said the question of costs could' be dealt with by the taxing master.

Mr. Thomas found his premises were too large- for the purposes of his business, so ne let off a part of it. which formed a shop and three rooms. His first tenant was a man or tne name or u-utett, who took the place for three years, but, after staying there two years, he assigned his right to the prisoner, and his term tor- minatea on tne ism oeKjiueer, ioeo. xne appellant did not leave, but held over, and refused to nav the last quarter's rent which was due.

Mr. Thomas put in a distress, and the goods belonging to the appellant were sold, but did not realise enough to pay the rent owing. The shop was blocked up, and the respondent took possession, which seems to have aggrieved the appellant, and on the28th of October he told him he should stim nn the premises as long as he liked, and should pay no rent. On the 3rd of Kovomber he went to the premises, and, according to thevidence, broke tbe panel of the door ana a large pane oi xiaaa. jjviuence was con-' firm these factB.

The evidence given was decidedly in favour of the theory that this person was drunkj and after the examination of one or two witnesas by Mr.

Montagu Williams, the learned counsel said that in the whole course of a long experienije he, had never heard of such an extraordinary conviction as this. It was at all times the bounden duty of a publican to keep his house in order, and to get rid of any man or woman whocreated or might create a disturbance in his place.

The prosecutor, in answer to the prisoners, denied having struck them or said that he was a detective. It was also untfue that he had bitten a piece off one of the fingers ofthe woman Hornidge. The prisoner held up her hand, which was bandaged, and called attention to the fast tbat a Serjeant of police had a portion of one of her fingers.

This was produced, the officer stating that he had found it near the scene of the fight some hours afterwards. The prosecutoroaid he had not bitten it off but believed that the woman's hand had been shut in his iron gate, and the finger might have been taken oft in that way. Two respectable witnesses gave evidence for the prosecution, agreeing that the prosecutor had pushed the women, but that they were "clawing" him and using, horrible language. Mr. Bushby after hearing the case at length, considered that one woman had sustained a serious injury.

He gave them the benefit of the doubt, and discharged them. 1 SOUTHTVABK. Semalb BimeiABS is Men's Clotbjhs.
