NESTON PETTY SESSIONS. + FRIDAY.—Before Messrs. D. Graham, T. Brockle- bank, R. Bushell, and T. Clarke. A FAMILY FEUD.—May Bulley, aged 11, was summoned for assaulting Lily Scarratt, aged twelve, on August Bank Holiday last, and Beatrice Bulley, mother of May Bulley,* was summoned for using threats to Minnie Scarratt, sister of Lily Scarratt. Mr. C. Roberts appeared for the complainants, and Mr. W. H. Churton for the defendants.- Lily Scarratt stated that on Bank Holiday she was sitting on the quay wall at Parkgate near her home, when May Bulley, who resided a short distance away, came up to her and without provo- cation hit her on the face and arm with a cane.—In cross examination she admitted that she had previously told defendant to bid her mother go and get sober. —Mrs. Mealor also gave evidence as to the assault.—Mrs. Bulley was afterwards charged with using threats to Minnie Scarratt, and Mr. Roberts asked that she should be bound over to keep the peace, so as to prevent his client being further annoyed.—^Mr. Churton ridiculed the idea of bringing such young children into a police oourt, and the evidence shewing that the disputes between the two families had existed for some time, the Bench dismissed both summonses. TRACTION ENGINE PROPRIETOR SUHMONED.— Robert Bridson, traction engine proprietor, Neston, was summoned for using a traction engine and three carriages on the highway with no person in charge besides the three persons required by the Act to be in charge of the locomotive, on 3rd August last. Constable Bostock. who proved the charge, stated that the carriages consisted of a cultivator, a set of harrows, and a water tub. There was another charge in connection with another traction engine, which followed immediately after the first engine and implements, but was not attached to them. The evidence shewed the two engines and implements made up a ploughing set, and after Mr. Churton had addressed the Bench, urging that agriculturists at the present time should not be put to needless expense, the Bench inflicted a nominal penalty of one shilling in each case. INFRINGING THE BYELAWS.—Charles Symes, of Ellerslea, West Derby, was summoned for building a house at Neston without having the plans approved by the Wirral Rural District Council in accordance with bye-law 89. Mr. J. Thompson appeared for the Council, and Mr. Hughes, building surveyor to the Council, gave evidence.—Mr. Thomas, architect, Neston, stated that the plans had been submitted and had been returned for some minor alterations.— Defendant was ordered to pay costs.—Joseph Burkey was summoned by the same authority for breaking bye-law 8 in connection with houses he has erected at Heswall, and on the associated charge of infringing bye-law No. 16, was fined 10s. in the first case, and 92 in the second. CHARGES OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS.—William Young, for working a horse in an unfit state, and J. Young, for causing the horse to be worked, were fined 5s. and costs each. Inspector Dowty proved the charge.—John Collinson, Heswall, was charged with a similar offence. Mr. F. I Cosgrove, veterinary surgeon, Neston, gave rebutting evidence, and the case was dis- l missed. MISCELLANEOUS. Esther Littlemore and Ellen Littlemore were each fined for profane language. Hannah Williams, Robert Oiler- head and Thomas Mason were fined Is. each for allowing cattle to stray.—John and Robert Ollerhead were fined 2s. each for obstructing the parapet.—Ben Griffiths, John Fewtrell, Thomas Peters, Thomas Lewis, and George Lewis were fined la. each for throwing stones.
