CLARE LOCAL COURT.
Thursday, April 3.
(Before J. W. Macdonald, and E. B. Gleeson, Esquires.)
William Wright appeared to the information of William Schulitz for assaulting him at Mintaro, on the 27th March last, by striking him with his fists on the face.
William Schulitz proved that on the day mentioned in the information, defendant struck him on the face with his fists, and used very insulting language towards him. He gave Wright no provocation whatever.
Richard Morris heard the plaintiff and defendant quarrelling, but saw no blows struck.
John Brown was present at the time of the alleged assault. He heard the two parries, Wright and Schulitz, quarrel, and saw Schulitz pick up his hat, and say that was all he wanted.
The Bench considered the case not proved, and dismissed the information.
