Newspaper Articles

"William Walton, hawker, 78 Cardigan Street, was charged with assaulting Warrant Officer William Roach [119R], and Lizzie Ashton, Back 16, Cardigan Street, was charged with obstructing the officer in the execution of his duty. Mr. J. E. Hill appeared for the prosecution. The evidence showed that on Wednesday last, the officer went to 78, Cardigan Street, to execute an ejection order. Walton whom he found upstairs, threatened to shoot him, and when the officer went downstairs to obtain assistance, Walton followed him into the street and struck him a violent blow to the side of the head. The woman, it was said, obstructed the officer. Walton was sent to gaol for a month with hard labour, and the woman, who denied the charge against her, was discharged with a caution."
