He replied that he had never had- any row with Coombs, whereupon Conolly struck- him on the side of the head with an iron hook which was attached to his right arm in the place of a lost hand. He was knocked down, and when he was upon the ground the other prisoners came up and kicked him all over the body. The jury found all the prisoners guilty, and.

At half-past three on the day named prosecutor went to his sister's house, where the prisoner lodged, and some words- passed amongst them, resulting in a fight between, the prosecutor and the prisoner.

They fell on the ground- together, and while they were thus prostrate Jeanette Morgan and a neighbour named VTni. J ohnarrived on tiie scene, and the two men were separated. Later on, however, they met again, and then th8 prisoner struck the prosecutor a violent blow on the head with a piece of iron, which was I usually used for keeping open a door.
