People are hurt everyday and may need an experienced solicitor in Ellesmere to help
Ellesmere Port is a large industrial town and port in Cheshire. It is situated on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal and is north to the city of Chester. In October 1890, there was a great deal of rowdy behaviour going on which meant that folks who were simply going about their work were in danger through no fault of their own.
Samuel Hill, a labourer, was charged with refusing to quit a tavern in Ellesmere Port, with assaulting 2 police officers and stealing a tumbler worth 6d. Hill entered the public house and paid a half crown for a half pint of peppermint. He received his peppermint and 1s 5d change. The barman told Hill that he had deducted a penny for the glass. Hill accused the barman of not giving him the right change and threatened to take it from the bar if he did not receive it immediately.
The prisoner kicked him violently
When the barman ignored him, Hill removed his coat, went around the bar and assaulted the barman. The police were called and the prisoner kicked them violently. The glass was found in Hill’s possession and identified as the landlord’s. The prisoner was remanded in custody as were his two companions William Johnson and James Baker for trying to break him out of custody. The barman suffered injury through no fault of his own.
In court on the same day was James Houghton, a fitter. He had gone to get his wage packet but was in a rush. Houghton went to the canal offices in Ellesmere Port to get his money. When he was kept waiting he became impatient and broke a pane of glass. The cashier deducted the value of the glass from his pay so Houghton smashed another pane of glass. He was sentenced to 14 days hard labour for that piece of bad behaviour.
Could have been rendered blind
An act of temper like that could quite easily have caused a bad accident for the cashier. If a sharp piece of broken glass had flown into his eyes he might have been rendered blind and never worked again.
