<p>knocked at the door and I heard from her something was happening to Henry; I then went in the road and saw two policemen holding Henry—I should know them again, the defendant is one, and Goldsworthy is the other—I said "Don't hurt him he is not very well, go to the station Henry and I will bring your father up to bail you out"—the defendant then took his hands from my son and struck me on the side of my face and I fell, and a man called Hobbs picked me up—I fell right on my back in consequence of the blow given me by the defendant—I was hurt by the fall, I had heavy money in my pocket, I went home and took my pocket off and then I went direct to the station—I met my daughter Louisa on the way, and I went to the station to make a complaint to the sergeant that a policeman knocked me down—when I got to the station I saw Sergeant Borner and I saw Henry and Catherine Forrester—I made a complaint against the con
<lb/>stable to sergeant Borner—I said "I have come here to make a complaint against a police-officer that knocked me down;" and turning round to the defendant I said "There you are, what provocation did I give to knock me down in the road," the defendant did not answer—Sergeant Borner said "Have you anything more to say"—I replied "I have nothing more to say"—that was the whole of the conversation between the sergeant, the defendant and myself—the sergeant then got off his seat and said to me "Turn out;"—I said "I am not a dog, this is working hard and paying rates and taxes to look forward to police-officers to protect you, and treat you like dogs"—I have said everything that passed—I then went home; I have repeated all. the conversation at the station—Mr. Hobbs went with me to the station, bat he did not go inside.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Policeman X</hi> 218). On Saturday, 22nd July, at 11.45, I was on duty in St. Clement's Road, Notting Hill—I saw a crowd in Crescent Street—I saw constable Kersey go towards the crowd—I followed—after that I saw Henry Marsh in custody of Kersey, and just as I got up Marsh tripped him up and they both went on the ground—Henry Marsh is the prisoner's son—I pulled him away from Kersey, and as I did so as he got up he kicked me in the leg and we all three fell. together—at that time Sergeant Atwell and Goldsworthy came up—Atwell took hold of one side of Marsh and I took hold of the other; we then took him out of the crowd and took him to the Notting Hill station—he was drunk—the woman he was living with, Kate Forrester, was there also—she was taken into custody</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="187610230006"/>
<p>and charged with attempting to rescue—she got hold of me by the back of the collar and nearly choked me; that was when Marsh was in custody, when we were on the ground—there was a mob of somewhere about seventy or eighty people—they were very disorderly, pushing one against the other and throwing stones and brick bats—they were thrown at all of us; one hit Henry Marsh, one hit Kersey, and one struck me in the back—I did not see the prisoner there; she did not speak to me and say "Don't hurt him, he is not very well; go to the station, Henry, and I will bring your father to bail you out"—I did not then take my hands from Henry Marsh and strike her on the side of her face, nor did she fall in consequence—I never saw her there at all—I did not see any woman on her baok; I did not strike any woman—I and Kersey took Henry Marsh to the station, and Goldsworthy followed behind—Atwell went part of the way, not all the way—I was present when he was charged—Goldsworthy took the woman Forrester, she followed up part of the way—after they were charged the prisoner came in—the prisoners were put in the dock; Sergeant Borner was the acting inspector—the prisoner came right into the room; she said "Have you got my son here?"—the sergeant said "Yes, there he is," point

<hi rend="italic">give</hi> you to knock me down in the road?" Ser
<lb/>geant Borner did not get up from his seat and say to her "Turn out"—she did not say "I am not a dog; this is working hard and paying rates and taxes to look forward to police officers to protect you, and treat you like dogs"—no complaint was made against any of the constables—I have been close upon six years in the force—I believe they were bailed out next morning—on Monday, the 24th, Henry Marsh and Kate Forrester appeared at the police-court, and I and Kersey gave evidence—the Magistrate con
<lb/>victed them both and they were sentenced—I was not present when Henry Marsh's father made a statement to the Magistrate; I went away thinking the case had been finally disposed of—no witnesses were called for the defence on the 24th; the matter was brought on again on the 31st—witnesses were then called, and the prisoner amongst others—the prisoners were convicted after the second hearing—the prisoner was not there on the 24th—I afterwards received a summons charging me with an assault—I appeared on the 7th August and it was adjourned to the 8th and I was acquitted by the Magistrate.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> This is rather a noisy and very low neighbourhood—it was about 11.45, when the beershops and taverns were closing—stones were flying about after Marsh was taken into custody—the police were not using their truncheons; I believe one of them drew his truncheon to keep the crowd back; they were swaying a good deal behind—Mrs. Marsh might have been there but I did not see her, or her daughter Louisa, or a woman named Harwood; I do not know her—I did not see Abraham Brooks there; I don't know him—I know Louisa Marsh by sight—I did not see Hobbs there; I know him—I know Ellen Marsh but I did not see her there—I do not know Cornelius Thompson or Frederick Marshall; I</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="187610230007"/>
<p>might know them by sight but not by name—all this about the prisoner saying at the station as to paying rates and taxes, is a pure invention; she never charged anybody with anything—I don't know whether there was a great crowd outside the station; I did not go out till after the charge was taken and the people gone—sometimes people push into the station when there
<hi rend="italic">is</hi> a row of this kind, but they don't get so far, as the police are stand

I have been seven years in the force—on the night of 22nd July I was on duty in Crescent Street, Notting Hill about 11.50, with Sergeant Atwell—I saw a crowd in Crescent Street outside the Shamrock beer-house, kept by the prisoner's husband—the first thing I saw was Henry Marsh kick Kersey in the
<hi rend="italic">leg</hi>—he fell, Hyde also fell; there was a great crowd and I was obliged to draw my staff to keep the crowd back; they were, pushing on us—with great difficulty we got the prisoner to the station—I did not lay hands on him myself—besides the crowd pushing I did not see anything else done—Kersey and Hyde had Henry Marsh in custody and they took, him to the station—I saw Kate Forrester when we got to the station—before they took off Henry Marsh I saw the prisoner; she was about 10 or 12 yards away from Kersey and Hyde; that was at the time they had Henry Marsh in custody—she did not say anything—Hyde did not strike or push her or touch her at all—I did not see any woman on the ground—there were a great number of persons between the prisoner and the constables—I walked behind them to the station—I took Forrester in custody outside the station from what Hyde said to me, and she and Henry Marsh were both charged—Sergeant Borner was the acting inspector, about ten minutes after they were brought in, the prisoner came in—no one came in with her—she said "Is my son here"—the sergeant said "Yes," pointing to her son and Forrester in the dock—she asked what he was charged with—he said for being drunk, disorderly, and assaulting police constables 184 Kersey, and 218 Hyde—she asked if bail might be taken—he said "Yes, if you will send up Mr. Marsh, I will take his bail"—she said "Mr. Marsh is ill in bed and can't come up"—the sergeant said "If you send up any other respect
<lb/>able person I will take their bail"—she then left the station—I, knew her by sight as the wife of the beershop keeper—she did not make, any com
<lb/>plaint about Hyde having struck her, or any complaint whatever against the police—she did not say to Hyde."There you are, what provocation did I give you to knock me down"—she did not say "This is working hard and paying rates and taxes, looking forward to the police to protect you, and treat you like dogs," or anything of that sort.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> The crowd was very rough, stones were flying about—there was a good deal of noise; there were about fifty people or there might be more, not so many as seventy or eighty—I was close by the prisoner, the crowd was very noisy and disorderly—if anything had been said. I could have heard it—the prisoner did not say "You had better go quietly," she said nothing at all, she never opened her lips, she never uttered a word when she saw her son taken away—when I got to the station I remained there the whole time—there were only constables there and the two pri
<lb/>soners and Mrs. Marsh, I suppose she was three or four minutes inside the station—a great crowd had followed up behind, some of them walked on</p>

<p>the steps but they were put back by the reserve man—no one was pushed while I was there—the prisoner came in at the door—I noticed everything she said—she said nothing about paying rates and taxes or charging the constable—I am sure she said "Is my son Harry here"—the station is about half a mile from her beerhouse—there is no other station at Notting Hill.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Kate</hi> Forrester was afterwards brought in and they were both put in the dock and charged—in five or ten minutes the prisoner came to the station—she asked what her son was charged with; the sergeamt said "being drunk and disorderly and assaulting me and Hyde in the execution of our duty"—she asked whether there could be bail—the sergeant told her yes; she said Mr. Marsh was ill in bed—he told her any other householder would; she was in the station three, four or five minutes—she made no complaint whatever about me or Hyde, she did not complain of being knocked down or injured in any way—she said nothing about paying rates and taxes, or being treated like a dog—the sergeant did not say to her "Turn out;" nobody was in the charge room except the constables and the prisoner when she came in—relations are allowed to come in—I did not see who were waiting outside the station—several of the crowd followed up to the station.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> Forrester and Marsh were in the dock—I was there the whole time—I remember the very words the prisoner used—she said "What is the prisoner charged with," and she asked whether bail would be allowed, that was all—she did not want to inquire where her son was; he was in the dock, she could see him—I had not seen her in the crowd when her son was taken into custody—there was a good deal of noise going on, hooting: stone throwing and every kind of confusion—the police were not very roughly used because several constables kept the crowd back, they had to keep close to us to prevent the crowd coming on to the prisoner—there was plenty of hooting and calling out, I could not hear everything that was said.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> Mr. Nicholls was then in the wine bar—I don't think either of them were intoxicated; they seemed very friendly together, the prisoner was outside and Mr. Nicholls was inside—I dare say they were there an hour and half—Mr. Nicholls was the gent, because he stopped inside, but I dare say the prisoner went in and had a liquor.</p>

Barron". My brother Charles was with me, and was present when the note was read—it was shown to him as well by Mr. Nicholls—after some time he gave me the boxes of cigars—I carried ten boxes, and my brother carried a few, I don't know how many.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> This was on Sunday evening, 14th May—the note was not read to me, I read it myself—I believe I remember the words exactly I did not notice the blind on the boxes, they were done up in brown paper—I never fetched any except on that occasion.</p>

Tarrant" being his; the body is certainly his—the M in Mathieson in the acceptance, and the M in the body of the bill are very similar, now I Come to examine it more closely there is a great similarity between them—I have no doubt that the endorsement "E.

<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., in the course of business this bill was brought to me at a time when it was not endorsed; it was brought to me on account of the prisoner's indebtedness, the bills were sent in an envelope, this among others, unendorsed—I sent for the prisoner to come and endorse them, he came a
<hi rend="italic">few</hi> days afterwards, it was sometime in August, I think, he wrote his name on the back of the bill; nothing was said about the bill at the time—it was left with me in the same state as it is now, except what the bankers have written on it.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> I said before the Magistrate "If he had asked me for further credit, I might have given it him, I accorded him no new credit on his giving me the bill"—it was an extension of time on the overdue bills.</p>

<p>carry on business with Miss Mathison, as French milliners, tinder the name of Mathison Howell—I have known the prisoner two years—I did not write the name of "Mathieson Howell" on this bill, I did not write any part of the bill, I never saw it till it was presented to me at Miss-Mathison's I house—I did not authorise any person to accept it—no bill to my knowledge was given by the firm of Mathison Howell, the firm does not keep a banking account.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> Miss Mathison has a banking account—she is not inter
<lb/>ested equally in the business with me-we are not partners—I said before the Magistrate "Miss Mathison is equally interested in. the partnership with me". We have never signed any bill of exchange as partners. There was no agreement; we carry on business jointly; we are friends. I did not bring any capital into the business; a great portion of the capital was brought in with the prisoner's money. He lent it—to her, and he bought the furniture for her, and a great portion of the stock, from Moore Cope
<lb/>stake's "—I don't know that he took the house, Miss Mathison took the house—she had some money in the bank-we started the business together—there was no money in the bank at first, she was not able to have the money when we first went into business—I know that the prisoner paid 55
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. for stock bought of Moore Copes take—I am not aware of the amount he, paid for gas fittings, but I know, he bought them—I know that he pur
<lb/>chased furniture and goods for the purpose of the partnership to the amount of 88
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. odd—I can't say how that was paid, I know it was paid by small payments—we had a plate on the door with "Mathison Howell" on it—we have since removed it because everyone that passed by looked at the house, and our names had got so published that we thought it had better be taken down—it was taken down by ourselves, by bur direction—Mr. Gosnell does not live there; he had nothing. to do with taking the plate down that I know of.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Re-examined.</hi> Miss Mathison asked me to go into business—I said I could not as I had no money, but I would go with her to work if she liked, as I had' known her from childhood, and I did do so—she said "I have a friend who has known me for. years, a Mr. Tarrant, he will lend me the money to go into business;" and I said "Very well, I will go with you,"—that was about two years ago—we went into business at 5, Mortlake Ter
<lb/>race, Kew-we failed there, through illness—I remained there, living in the same house with her up to Christmas, 1875, we then removed to Sandring
<lb/>ham Villas—I cannot tell when the payment to Copestake's was made between January and June this year I saw Mr. Tarrant, at Sandringham Villas—I had not seen him then for months,. for we had both been ill in bed for two months, he came I think at the time' we were ill—I think I saw him about June; I think it was before the date of this Billy which, is 12th June—I think it was the beginning of June he came; he did not stay more than two hours; he did not make any demand for money, he never asked for a penny piece ever since we have been in business—I don't think I saw him in August at all—I don't remember seeing him between the early part of June and his being in custody.</p>

I have known the prisoner about eight or nine years—on 19th November, 1874, I took the house 5, Northlake Terrace, Kew, in my own name—I have here the agreement and my. receipts for rent; I paid the rent myself; the prisoner paid for some furniture on my account</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="187610230032"/>
<p>when I took the business there in November, 1874, he did not pay for it down then, it was paid by instalments, he became liable for the furniture—I paid some of the instalments, I have the receipts here—he also paid a bill at Messrs. Copestake's of 58
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. 7
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>.—that must have been paid somewhere about December, 1875—I think it was the 28th December—he also paid for the gas-fittings, I don't know how much that was; I never saw the bill for them—I did not pay him back any money; he never demanded pay
<lb/>ment from me, it could, have been arranged to have paid him had he done so—I had a banking account,! have the banking book here—after the Christmas quarter, 1875, I removed with Miss Howell (to Sandringham Villas—I think I have seen Mr. Tarrant twice during the year, that is all, I think that was about the time, I don't remember seeing him more, two or three times—I signed a bill of exchange, I suppose it must have been in January this year—I signed it in my own drawing room at Gunnersbury, Mr. Tarrant was there, he brought the bill there—he brought me a slip of paper which I did not understand; I asked him to explain it to me—he said "Oh, it is nothing, you would not be able to understand it if I were to do so, I am in a little difficulty, and I wish you to put your name across it"—I refused to do so at first, and then Mr. Tarrant wished me to do so as he could then tell some one, a friend of the family, of the way that he had supplied the money to me, which I wished to be a secret; that was the way he made me sign the bill; he could say it was money I had borrowed from him, but he had never asked me for it; I then signed the bill—I could not exactly say the amount of it, I think it was for 84
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—he did not say any
<lb/>thing about when it was to be paid, but I thick I saw on it "four months"—I either signed it E. Mathison, or Emma Mathison, but I rather think R.—I spell my name "Mathison"—I have never spelt it differently that I am aware of—I never saw the bill afterwards—I never signed "Mathison I Howell" to a bill of exchange—that was the only bill I ever signed—I think I I saw the prisoner between that occasion and the early part of June, he came I to our house I think twice after that, when he came in June he did not say I anything about wanting me to sign any other bill—he never mentioned anything about my allowing him to raise money for the purpose of his dif
<lb/>faculties—I never saw' this bill until it was shown to me at the police-court I—I never gave him any authority to sign that bill.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined.</hi> He is no relation of mine—I did not go to him and state that I had no capital and would he help me to go into business; it was not that way it was said at all; he was to lend me the money, he volunteered to lend it me, because he knew that he could be paid back I again, first of all if I had succeeded in business, and if not it would have been paid back as well by a certain person—I did not give any paper writing to that effect, he took it from me by word of mouth—I did not pay back any, except about 10
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.; I have paid part for the gas-fittings; they were so badly done that I had to pay 10
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. or so for that-this is a bill that I have paid for the gas-fittings; it is not a receipt, it is simply the invoice for it—I can't say exactly how much I have paid; I have not paid the pri
<lb/>soner anything, except about 10
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., because he never asked for it, he never applied to me for the sums I owed him, I don't know what I do owe him, even now—the bill I signed was in January and was a four months' bill—I have never paid that bill or anything towards it, I have, never seen the bill since-at the time it was drawn nothing was said about the handwriting—after I had written it the prisoner used the pen I had, but I don't know</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="187610230033"/>
<p>what he did to it—I did not say to him "As the things—here are all yours, you may as well sign it yourself", because all the things in my house are not his, certainly not—I said before the Magistrate "He altered the signature in my presence; I don't know the alteration that he made", that is the same thing as I am saying now—somebody else besides the prisoner advanced me money towards the stock at the time I went into business; I shall not say bow much, you have no right to ask me.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Re-examined.</hi> I believe, the total amount of the furniture bought was 80
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.; I don't remember exactly—that was to be paid back by instalments of 4
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. a month, spread over nearly two years—I have had to take the pay

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi> Mr. C. Mathews. I don't know that I said anything</p>

<p>at the police-court, about King feeling me up and down—I said "I believe someone put their hand in my pocket, but I will not be positive"—I don't know who it was put his hand in my pocket.</p>
