A HAWARDEN OVERSEER FINED. AT Caergwrle Petty Sessions,last week,John Cawley, farmer, Shordley Hall, a guardian of the poor for the Hawarden Union, and one of the overseers for the parish of Hope, was summoned by Frederick Jones, the as- sistant overseer and rate collector for Hope, for threats and assault. Mr. Wynn Evans (Wrexham) was for the complainant, and Mr. Frank Turner (Ches- ter) was for the defendant. Mr.Evans said his client had been assistant overseer for ten years, and Mr. Cawley was one of the four overseers appointed last April for the parish of Hope. Ever since the de- fendant had been appointed he had, for some reason or other, manifested a grudge against Jones. At the first meeting of the overseers in June the defendant made some objections about the place which bad been requisitioned by the complainant for the meeting. The defendant had frequently attended meetings in an excited condition, and the complain- ant had had the greatest difficulty in work- ing with him. On January 28th the defend- ant used strong language, put his fist in complainant's face, and pushed him by the shoulder. They were separated, and the complainant escaped. The complainant, in his evidence, said he was in bodily fear of the defendant. For the defence it was contended that Mr. Cawley greeted Jones in the most civil manner, and it was only when the complain- ant became uncivil that Cawley emphasised his remarks by raising his hand, though he did not at all intend to assault the com- plainant. Ultimately the bench found the defendant guilty of a technical assault, and fined him 10s. and costs.
