FAMILY QUARREL Three Brothers-in-Law Stabbed A curious story was unfolded at North Lon- don Police-court yesterday, when Harry John- Bon, oî Upton-grove, Southgate, was charged with stabbing his three brot.bers-in-v:. Evidence was given by Thomas Dawson, who is a provision dealer of Garnham-street, Stoke Newington, to the effect that on Thursday night he went to Upton-grove to visit his sister, the prisoner's wife. The prisoner, how- ever, was at home, and directly the area door was opened he rushed upon witness, and stabbed him on the left wrist. The prisoner ran to the stairs, but witness followed. Some- how the prisoner got over him with the knife. His two brothers, who had accompanied him to the house, rushed to his assistance, and got the knife away. but not before they had been seriously stabbed about the head and hands. In cross-examination the witness denied going to the prisoner's house for the purpose of assaulting him. It was not true that the prisoner was being held down by witness and another brother while a third was hitting him with a big stick. Mr. Cluer: What did you go to the house for? Witness: I went with my two brothers because the prisoner has been carrying on with another woman and assaulting our sister. Did you go to reward him for his merits? No; we went there to persuade him to give up the other woman and induce him to behave differently in the future. Harry Dawson. who corroborated, was asked by Mr. Clarke, who defended, if he had been round before to talk things over. Witness: Yes; I have done all I could to coax fcUn round. And this time you took a thick stick with you to add to your argument? No thicker than I usually carry. I put it to you that you struck and beat the prisoner with this stick while your brothers held him down? There was a struggle, but it was not as you suggest. Further corroborative evidence being given by John Dawson, the third brother-in-law, the prisoner was committed for trial, bail being allowed in one surety of JE5.
