Participated to certain extent in the arrest of mrs Dake assisting m conducting her to the mayors office Atter she had been brought some distance officer re ibb and Kelbur. From the Evl Denoe adduced it appears 1i.laln?? bold of mrs Dake on Smithfield Street opposite the site of the new City Hall at first i seizing her quite roughly the Jarm As she Wos stooping to to speak to some Little girls who trere upon Dewalk. The crowd a smeared for the mls ase of mrs. D.,and after pro-00 ,1� no arly the Comer of Smithfield Ayenul after been twice requested Williams ordered Rabb to take the Gyves from her wrist and himself took exclusive charge of her expressing an intention to take Borte the re oks in tombs but at the suggestion of a citizen . Feb he took her directly to the mayors of Floe whilst Kellar a proceeded with the coloured boy to the tombs mrs. Dake Sta ged with Gyves us nay in her conduct that of a lady called out for her release until for very shame arid overawed the Man Williams ordered the ropes Tobe taken from her i wrist.

Mrs Woodward made quite a forcible speech covering the whole ground and in conclusion remarked to the court he took the ground that Williams was parti Cepi Nemunis in the whole transaction. _ judge Sterrett thought this rather Broad. There was however a very important ques-�?�.1? e Case which had not been adverted to counsel on As far As the Case stood before the jury there was no authority shown for the arrest of mrs. Dake. Ana so far As the evidence went it App re a to a to re at outrage so assuming that uie arrest , is the defendant liable for answering the Call to a. Another officer without inquiring whether the arrest was authorized not this. His Honor thought was about the whole question in the Case. It was an in portent one and to bad some doubt about it. Gen. Collier said he had not examined the question. A judge Sterrett expressed a desire to have the Case in some shape which t he Point might to raised a Gen. Collier said he had argued to the jury upon the other Point in the Case Viz whether the defendant used unnecessary Violonte Force in the assistance he had rendered officer Rabb. Judge Sterrett asked the jury Testate in their verdict upon which Point. They based it. 1st. Whether the defendant used Nuoc Essary Force and violence.2d. Whether when called to assist in the arrest defendant assisted without making inquiry if. The arrest wa3 upon a warrant otherwise lawful and conveyed mrs. Dake against her will to Tho mayors office whether she consented according to the testimony of one witness to go with defendant to the mayors office and that defendant took her a there using no More Force than was necessary. The second proposition his Honor repeated he considered of great importance As it involved on the one hand the Publio safety and on the other the efficiency of the police.
