BBUTAL ASSAULT UPON A RAILWAY OFFICER, Joseph Moulahurst, a labourer, was charged before Mr. Yardley, at Marylebone Police-station, with being drunk and violently assaulting John Blatchford, ticket- collootor at the Edgware-road station of the Metro- politan Railway. Blatchford deposed: About five o'clock on Satur- day afternoon the prisoner came on to the platform in a drunken state. I told him he could not go by train, when he seized hold of the gate and would not allow the passengers to go either in or out. He said he had a ticket and would go. After a deal of per. suasion the prisoner was got outside the station, and as I was about to return he struck me a most violent blow on my nose with his fist. The blow cut my nose tight through to the bone. I then took him into custody. Mr. Tilssey, from tha office of Messrs. Bnrchell, solicitors, who appeared to prosecute, handed to his worship a medical certificate, which set forth that the naaal bone was broken. In reply to Mr. Yardley, Blatchford said he lost more than a pint of blood. Prisoner: I was so drunk that I did not kaow what occurred. Mr. Yardley: That is an entire justification fer pro- secutor refusing to allow you to go by the train. In faot, he would have acted very wrong if he had allowed you. Because he did his duty you assaulted him in a most brutal manner. I sentence you to one month's hard labour.
