John Thomas stated On Saturday night at 10 p.m., I was called to the Ship Inn, Blue-street. I went into the kitchen, and there saw defendants fighting with two other men. I separated them, and put them out into the street. After going out they were very disorderly, they wanted to go back to the house again. A large crowd had by this time assembled. Jones was taken away by his sister and some friends. Vaughan left after I had threatened to lock him up. Jones denied being drunk or making a disturbance. Defendant had been convicted once before, and was fined us 6d including costs. James Isaac, Temple Gardens, was sum- moned on remand for having been drunk and disorderly on the 6th inst. P.C. Richards confirmed the evidence he gave last week, which was to effect that defendant was drunk and behaving in a disorderly manner. He requested him to go away several times. Defendant attempted to strike him with the saw and as he was doing this he fell backwards on the footway and was stunned. Some of his friends took him .away.

This case had been adjourned to enable Isaac to produce witnesses to prove that the constable.threw him down and handled him roughly. The chairman (to Isaac) Have you brought your witnesses ? Defendant I asked Mrs Lloyd and Bowen, the painter, but they would'nt come, so there's nothing to do but stand on my own legs (laughter).
