WINDOW SMASHING AT ABERNANT A CHALLENGE WHICH WAS NOT ACCEPTED. David Meyrick was charged with damaging a window, the property of David James. David James, 3, Foreman's-row, Aber- rant, said that defendant came to his house and challenged him to fight, which challenge witness did not accept. De- fendant thereupon smashed witness's windows. Defendant held that he had done it under provocation, because he had some grievance against James and his family. But the Stipendiary held that that was no justification for smashing windows.

Mrs. Leeke said they had been married lti years. Defendant's niece, a girl named Evans, was living with witness and her husband. One night witness dis- covered Leeke and his niece in bed to- gether. Defendant's excuse was that he had gone to that bed to see a row in the street. On the following Monday both left the house, defendant getting a brake tn take away the girl's belongings. Wit- ness was not able to trace him till last week, when he was found at Wakefield. Her husband had been living in adultery with the girl. Witness had three chil- dren. Defendant put to his wife a series of questions, which he read from a note- book. Some of them the Stipendiary ad- vised Mrs. Leeke not to answer, and others he answered himself. At one stage the wife was getting very voluble, and the Stipendiary remarked that he believed that defendant had been fright- ened away by his wife's speech.. Mrs. Leeke held that she was kicked black and blue by the girl at the time of parting. Defendant (to his wife): Who told you where I was? Mr. Griffiths: You had better ask me that question.
