CIP 12.9.1891
: THROWING STONES. Thomas Doncaster, 13, of Adam and Eve-row, John Baker, 15, of Catherine street, Harry Mudge, 14, of Cherryhinton-road, errand boy, Thomas Garner, 14, of Cavendish-road, William Stretch, 13, of Cold ham lane, Alfred Currie, 13, of Hooperstreet, Herbert German. l4, of Great Eastern street, Horace Gates, 13, of Coronation-street, Edgar Hunt, 14, Gwydir-street, Albert Allgood, 14, of Cavendish-road, and Morris Gladwell, 14, of Charles-street, were summoned for throwing stones, on Laundress Green, Monday, the 31st of August last.—Mr. A. J. Lyon appeared for the defendants and denied the offence, contending that Laundress Green was a common and not a street, and therefore no offence had been committed. —The Town Clerk, who prosecuted, then called Defective Clark, who said from complaints made about stone-throwing he saw all the boys. When taking their names he told them he thought they would be summoned for throwing stones, as there had been many complaints. They admitted throwing the stones, but most of them said they had only thrown them into the river to shoot over the surface of the water —Frederick Murrell, of Great Eastern-street, said he was on the Green about 1.20. when he saw Doncaster, Baker, German, Currie, Hunt, Stretch, and Mudge. He saw them throwing stones, most of which went into the water. Some, however, went into Mr. Darwin’s garden, and he saw that some of the windows were broken.—Harry Lanham, another boy, corroborated.—John Unwin, gardener to Mr. Darwin, said he was coming over the Green on the day in question, and saw about thirty boys, many of whom were throwing stones. Some of Mr. Darwin’s windows were broken. —Mr. Lyon contended that the place in question was not a street in the meaning of the Act but the Town Clerk thought that any thoroughfare used by the public was a street within the meaning of the Act.—The Bench ruled that the Green was public road, and ordered the defendants to pay 5s. each, including costs.
