DR TANNER M.P., RETURNS TO GAOL. At Tipperary on Monday Dr. Tanner, M.P. was charged before Messrs. Vesey, Fitzgerald, and Bruen, resident magistrates, with assaulting County-inspector Stephens, by spitting upon him, on the 3rd of May last.- The solicitor for the defence raised a technical objection to proceeding with the case, and on this being overruled he withdrew from the case. Evidence having been given, Dr. Tanner addressed the ) the court. He said that he did not recognise the court as constituted, and that he would not insult any gentleman by bringing him there as a witness. He solemnly denied the charge, which was a foul lie concocted by Inspector Stephens at the bidding of bis masters. The Government, which had failed to intimidate him, now strove to defame him. But he defied the Government, and he defied the court, who had the sentence cut and dried. The chairman was the criminal, and he pitied him.âThe Chairman said the charge had been substantiated, and the defendant would be sentenced to one month's imprisonment with hard labour. The defendant had further defied and insulted the court, and for that he would have to find bail in L200 for his future good behaviour, or in default three months' imprisonment.âDr. Tanner asked that the sentence might be increased so as to allow him to appeal, but the Court refused.
