HB Herald, Fri. Jan. 5, 1894
Detective KIRBY yesterday arrested a man named Christopher MACDONALD on a charge of breaking into and stealing from the shop of Mr H. CURTIES, bootmaker, on the 18th of December last. Accused will be brought before the R.M. this morning.
The downpour of rain between 2 o'clock and 4 o'clock yesterday morning was the heaviest ever experienced here. At 3 o'clock Tennyson street, Dalton street, and parts of Hastings and Dickens streets were like rivers, the water in Tennyson street being on the footpaths and the crown of the road for a short time.
The well-known property the Cafe is announced as for sale on behalf of Mr GLASSFORD. The reason is that the latter finds his hands too full since he acquired the large bakery business he is now carrying on in Emerson street, and finds it necessary to give up one of the businesses. Mr Montague LASCELLES will supply full particulars to intending purchasers.
We yesterday stated that the three doctors who attended the late Mr HOLMES in his last illness gave certificates that death was due to peritonitis, due to eating decomposing meat. This was not quite accurate, as only two out of the three doctors gave such certificates. The third was only called into consult as to the advisableness of a consultation, and therefore gave no certificate at all.
Thomas FITZGERALD appeared on remand at the R.M. Court yesterday, charged with causing grievous bodily harm to William M'GREGOR........The Bench decided to treat the case as one of common assault, and imposed a fine of 10s with costs 15s, and witnesses' expenses of £1 19s, in default of payment seven days' hard labor.
