WHITCHURCH. VIOLENT ASSAULT ON THE POLICE.—At Whit- church Police Court, on Monday, Edward Stockton was brought up in custody charged with an aggravated assault on Sergeant Morris and P.C. Gough. The evidence shewed that while under the influence of drink he struck Sergeant Morris a blow in the face, loosening several of his teeth, and during a struggle with him his thumb was badly sprained. He bit Gough, who also had his thumb sprained, and a man named Mannion. Eventually he was strapped on the Post-office hand-cart and con- veyed to the police station. There were 53 previous convictions against Stockton, nine of which were for assaults on the police, and he was sentenced to four months' hard labour. BOARD OF GUARDIANS. — The fortnightly meeting was held at the Union Work- house on Friday, Mr. R. P. Ethel- ston (chairman) presiding. — The Chairman said Mr. T. T. Chubb, the relieving officer, had had an operation performed upon him, and was unable fully to discharge his duties.—Mr. Topham said if Mr. Chubb's son was able to take over the work, they might appoint him for a limited period.—Mr. Langley And pay him when the work is done.—It was agreed to appoint Mr. C. Chubb during his father's illness.—The Chairman read the report of the House Committee, which had met that morn- ing, and recommended a new carpet for the front staircase at a cost of £2 7s. 6d., linoleum matting in the old women's bedroom, amount- ing to £2 5s., replacing of one of the boilers in the laundry; acceptance of Mr. Dodd's estimate for work re cooking boilers at a cost of £10 158.; and remedying the damp portions of the Infirmary walls at a cost of £15.-0n the motion of Mr. Morgan, seconded by Colonel Barnston, the recommendation of the com- mittee was agreed to. CYCLE PARADE.—The second annual cycle parade and carnival were held under the auspices of the Whitchurch Road Club on Wednesday. Fortunately the weather was on the whole favourable, although on several occasions it threatened to rain, and, successful as was last year's effort, the result for this year must appear satisfactory to the most sanguine of its promoters. The opinion is very generally expressed by old inhabitants that they have never seen so many people in Whitchurch before. Special trains were run from different places, and at the evening parade the streets of Whitchurch were literally thronged with spectators. This year the proceeds are in aid of the Jubilee Park scheme, and, although the result is not yet exactly known, it is anticipated that the amount handed over to the Cottage Hospital last year will be at least doubled. Extra prizes were offered this year, and the competition for them was exceedingly keen. Large vans, containing performing lions, bears, &c., created considerable amusement, being a new feature in the parade. The parades may now be looked upon as an annual event. The distribution of prizes took place in the Market Hall at night, the function being per- formed by Mrs. C. T. Dugdale, under the presidency of Colonel Lee. Afterwards the Diamond Jubilee Minstrel Troupe gave an entertainment in the Market Hall, and this was largely attended, and followed by a grand fancy dress dance in the Town Hall. This also was highly successful. We understand that the amount collected exceeds £60 but a final balancing up of accounts is not yet made.
