A VICAR FINED FOR AN ASSAULT. At the Hyde Police Court, on Monday, before Mr. A. K. Sidebottom (chairman) and Mr. E. H. Shel- lard, the Rev. W. H. Jones, M.A., Vicar of Mot- tram, was charged with an assault on a man named Lonsdale, on the 8th inst. The defendant did not appear. From the evidence of complainant it ap- peared that on Wednesday the 8th, he and some other men were paving the highway in front of the defendant's house and schools, at Mottram, when the defendant came out of his house in an excited state, and said to the men, Which is the man that, is doing this work ?" Complainant said he had charge of the job. The defendant then said, "And who authorised you to do it ?" Complainant said his master. Mr. Jones told complainant that the work was done wrong, which the latter denied, .vhereupon Mr. Jones said he would pull it to pieces and commenced to do so, when complainant went to prevent him, and was shoved away by the rev. gentleman, who said, in a very excised manner— You are a dirty stinking wastril, and a dirty sconn- drel for destroying my property in that manner, j- If you put any more work in I shall pull it to pieces after you have gone away at night." The Vicar added that the man must stop off working at once, and in answer to a query from Loverdale, said he would see all wages and expenses paid. It seemed that the reverend gentleman had further "rolled" against complainant in the road, and that the pave- ment was during the night pulled to pieces ns t1:.l'eatenec1. The defendant was fined 40s. and costs, or one month's imprisonment.
