j BOXING IN FETTER-LANE, I Imprisonment for ContempL of Court. In the Chancery Division yesterday Mr Justice North disposed of an application to commit George Paterson and George Sheppard, otherwise 44 Barney Sheppard, and Edward Murray (the agents or servants of George Paterson) to prison for their contempt in having disobeyed, and aided and assisted in disobuying, an order of the 15th of July, 1896, whereby tha Court ordered that the defendant, his servants and agents be perpetually restrained from doing, or suffering to be doue, anything which might interfere with the quiet enjoyment of the premises adjoining the first, second, and third floors of the house known ns 53. Fetter-lane, demisad by the plaintiff, Mr Swaward, to the defendaut hy a lease made in December. 1895. Mr Swinfen Eady, Q.C., and Mr Methold appeared for the plaintiffs; the defendant Paterson did not appear. Mr Seward Brice, Q.C., and Mr Lynch were for Edward Murray (one of the persons alleged to have aided and assisted in disobeying the order.) Goorga Sheppard appeared in person. Mr Justice North said that beyond all question there had been said that beyond all question there had been A CLEAR BREACH OF INJUNCTION. Special complaint was niade of what took place on the evenings of the 9th and 21st of October. The defendant's premises had been fitted up as place for boxing entertainments. It appeared from the affidavit of Ellen Dennington (the wife of the plaintiff, William Dennington), that they were much annoyed by the sounds of blows, shouts of applause, encouragement, and 4 time1 proceeding from the defendant's premises that, when these sounds ceased, they were suc- ceeded by piano playing and singing and thaf 44 after the piano playing and singing began there were more dreadful noises of shouting, I stamping, swearing, and hand-clapping." The. defendant Paterson was the lessee of the premises, and had committed a clear breach of the, injunc. tion. Sheppard was employed on the occasion of the two performances; he had taken an active part in those proceedings, and had been guilty of a clear.breachjof the injunction. Murray atood in a somewhat different position he was present on both occasions but said that he was there merely as a spectator. The injunction was granted in July, 1896 and Murray jwas told of it immedi- ately afterwards by Paterson himself. The evidence showed that Murray was present on those two occasions, not merely as a spectator, but as a parson actively interested from firsb to last. It was said that Murray was not a party to the action that the injunction was granted to restraiu Paterson, 44 his servants aud agents j and that Murray was neither his servant, nor his agent. But, in his Lordship's opinion, this was not an application to commit him for breach of the injuuotion but to commit him for his con- tempt of court in aiding and abetting others in acts which were a breach of the injunction. Under the circumstances all three must be committed to prison for contempt of court; Sheppard ouly for a fortnight and the other two for a month each.
