The men proceeded to the botanic Park which they will use for Camp ing purposes until the Royal agricultural society s show is Over. The cases against me Homiek and Stewart Meco Miek before the court. The defence. There was Only a Small attendance of the general Public in the police court this morn ing when the sometime leaders of the unemployed Henry Meco Miek and Charles Steward again appeared charged with disturbing the Public peace on Friday last and with being guilty of insulting behaviour with intent to provoke a breach of the peace in King William Street Adelaide on the Date. It will be remembered that the hearing of these charges was adjourned on monday last in order to give the counsel for the defence time to collect evidence. On that Day Mccoy j Mick and Stewart were each fined �10 and costs for having broken the by Lav. Sof the Ade Laide corporation by unlawfully parading the streets of Adelaide when permission to do so had been withheld. _ the Crown solicitor appeared for the j prosecution and or. H. V. Rounsevell for j the defence. Or. Rounsevell said he would Call evidence to show that there was no intention on the part of the defendant to break the Law and become guilty of a breach of the peace. To would also show the reason for holding the procession and that there was no disturbance. The defendant was one of those at the head of the procession of the unemployed which went through the streets of Adelaide on Friday. The defendant had already been punished for having taken part in the procession and be was now being tried for disturb ing the peace. The Only proof of any disturbance of the peace brought Forward by the Crown was with regard to two restive horses which had been held and quieted by Stewart and that the men were singing As they went along the streets. If any disturbance took place it was caused by the passage of the fire brigade which had just gone by. The unemployed were Only singing in their Ordinary voices. John Robertson an unemployed clerk living in Adelaide saw the whole of the proceedings of the unemployed in King William Street on Friday last and no disturbance whatever took place. All the proceedings were conducted in an orderly manner. The Street traffic was in no Way obstructed. By the Crown solicitor the witness had been working near Hamilton in Victoria in december last. He was then Wool pressing. He was aware that the mayor had refused permission for the holding of the procession. Henry Hanson a Miner out of work saw no disturbance of the Public peace on the Occa Sion of the procession of the unemployed last Friday. To corroborated the evidence of the previous witness As to the relative disturbances caused by the procession and by the fire brigade. Meco Miek the defendant said he had nothing to do with getting up the procession. The Day before the procession another Man had said he would Lead the men. The Adver Tiser of the next Day had said he Meco Miek was going to Lead and he thought the state ment was made in order to damage his influence with the men. He considered his influence was beneficial and decided to Lead the procession so that he would fully retain it. The groans were Given in a mixed sorb of Way with regard to or. Playford and were Given As an expression of opinion against the government and not against or. Playford personally. He had done his bes to keep the men orderly and quiet and the procession had been held to show that there were unemployed in Adelaide who wanted work. There was no intention of offending any one. The Bench said the information As to the use of insulting behaviour with intent to provoke a breach of the peace would be dismissed be cause there was not sufficient evidence in sap port of an intent. On the other information the court was fully satisfied. It was impossible that a crowd of 500 to 400 people should go through the streets shouting and Boohoo ing without causing a disturbance As charged and complained of. The penalty was a Fine of �2, but the alternative of 14 Days imprisonment with hard labor would be inflicted. The Crown solicitor asked that the defendant might be bound Over to keep the peace for six months and also bound Over in a second surety to be of Good behaviour for the term. He referred to Blackstone p. 2s7, As the authority on which this course could be taken. Or. Rounsevell opposed the application. The Bench thought the defendant had been sufficiently punished. If he came before the court again sureties would be required. So far As this Case was concerned the Bench was of opinion that sufficient warning had been Given. The adjourned Case against Charles Stewart Wab then proceeded with. Or. Rounsevell said the conduct of this defendant was less flagrant in its character than that of Meco Miek. He asked that the individual conduct of his client should be taken into consideration. Or. Robertson said that Stewart had Nob to shooed in King William Street and that he had right through advised the men Nob to Boohoo especially in the Case where they gave groans for the Stone Breakers. Charles Stewart the defendant said he had not hooted or. Playford he did Nob know him. The object of the cession was not to break the Law or the peace in any Way. It was simply to show that the men were unemployed and that they wanted work and to try and get Money to buy food for those in the procession and those who needed it. His conduct in going our of the line of March and holding horses beads showed that he wished to prevent any disturbance. The . Said the punishment in this Case would be 10 Days imprisonment with hard labor. The difference in the sentences was made because this defendant had not taken Buch an Active part in the hooting. The information for insulting behaviour with intent to provoke a breach of the peace wa3 dismissed. On wednesday evening the distribution of prizes won at the Brickyard employees picnic took place at the Hindmarsh town Hall build Ings when or. A Walton presided Law courts. Supreme court criminal sittings. Wednesday february 21. Before his Honor or. Justice boxes it and juries. The Crown solicitor or. J. M. Stuart prosecuted. Bigalte. Charles Hayw aril was charged with bigamy it being alleged that he married Esther Jane by Lea on May a 1875, and sub sequently on March is 3893, he married Annie Smith while Hia first wife was alive. Or. P. Mcm. Glynn defended. The Rev. E. Reid said he performed both ceremonies. A sister of prisoner s first wife said she was present at the marriage in 1867. There were nine children by the marriage and three lived. Prisoner took his wife and family to Melbourne about eight years ago and left his wife there. She remained about three months in Victoria and then came to Adelaide again. Or. Glynn submitted that under the marriage act the doom of the Church should be open and this was not the Case on the occasion of the second marriage. It was there fore invalid. The Learned counsel argued that if one of the witnesses was absent then the marriage would be invalid and the would apply in the event of the doors being closed. The onus was on the grown prosecutor to prove that the doors were open. His Honor said he was with or. Glynn in his Contention. If the prisoner had induced the Young girl whom he married in 1s93 to marry him she not knowing that he was married he had committed a. Serious orime but if she married him knowing that he was already married and she wished merely to go through the form of ceremony to shield her actions then she was Nob wronged. The Crown solicitor bub it is the first wife who is taking action your Honor. His Honor said in would make no difference to Tho first wife As she was really the wife. He would however go and consult hi3 colleagues on the matter As it was an important Point. After retiring for time his Honor re turned to the court and stated that he had conferred with his Honor or. Justice Bundey who was also of opinion Chat if the doom were closed or one witness was absent that the marriage would be void. The Crown solicitor said that the door might have been closed mischievously and he submitted that in this Case the marriage would be valid. He argued that the Small details were not an absolute necessity. Or. Glynn then called or. B. Gould who gave evidence As to the prisoner s character which he termed excellent. Prisoner in giving evidence said the door of the Church was closed during the Cere Mony. Went to Melbourne eight years ago and was parted from his wife for time. He did not know where she was. After hearing the Crown solicitor on the Point the Learned counsel showing thab it was not the main door that was shut his Honor said he considered or. Glynn s argument had Den a Ocker into a Coeke Nat. Or. Glynn then held a conversation with bi3 client and announced that Hay Ward would alter his plea to one of guilty. The Learned counsel then presented a petition signed by a great number of residents of Hindmarsh Bear ing testimony As to Good character. He also pointed out that prisoner had kept hi3 Home open for three years for his first wife and on marrying again had told miss Smith the circumstances of the Case. His Honor in passing sentence said prisoner was greatly indebted to his counsel for the Able manner in which he had defended him. He wished to Point our to the government and ministers of religion the particular wording of the act which had been gravely altered from the original act. The Point raised by or. Glynn was a very important one and had weighed considerably with him and in future he would consider invalid any marriage that was conducted in a Church with closed doors. It was not necessary that All of the doors should be oped but the condition of the Church should be such that the Public could go in to the ceremony if they wished. This was not a vory serious ease and the prisoner would receive one month s imprisonment unlawfully wounding. Patrick o Brien 33 was charged with unlawfully attempting to inflict grievous bodily harm upon John Merrity at Darlington on december 9. Or. J. 11. Anderson defended. Prom the evidence it appeared that defendant had a dispute with Merrity at the Flagstaff hotel about a dog. Defended seized Merrity by the coat and threatened him with a pocket uni a while he chased him distance. Merrity subsequently went to his bedroom at the hotel and o Brien followed him with the result that Merrity had to escape through the window. When arrested the prisoner also resisted the Constable. The prisoner made a statement to the effect that when he met Merrity he asked him when he was going to pay him certain compensation Money for keeping a dog. Merrity replied that he would not pay the Money and he threw a bottle at the prisoner who at the time was cutting up tobacco. The prisoner then chased him with the knife in his left hand but he never intended to use it for the purpose indicated. He considered he was Man enough for Merrity without a knife. He admitted the charge of common assault As he had shaken Merrity. After argument the Crown solicitor decided to withdraw tiie charge of attempting to inflict grievous bodily harm and substitute one of common assault. On this count verdict of guilty was returned by the jury. His Honor in passing sentence said the prisoner was a wicked dangerous and vindictive Man and he was Only sorry that the common Law would not permit him to Deal More severely with him. He had been convicted on eight different occasions for riotous behaviour insulting language assaulting the police burglary and threatening language. Sentenced to one year s imprisonment with hard labor. At this stage the court adjourned till the following Day. Tuesday february 22. Before his Honor or. Justice Boucaud and juries or. Bleech More prosecuted on behalf of the grown. Tii Eft. James Stephens 30 was charged with felonious by stealing 15 �1 notes and one pocket handkerchief the property of Corsbie Bell at Gardener s Camp near Bute on january 22, 1894.
