RIOTOUS BEHAVIOUR AT STEVENSTON

At Saltcoats J.P. Court yesterday, WILLIAM CAMPBELL, JOHN CAMPBELL, ARCHIBALD KENNEDY, WILLIAM BEATTIE, JAMES BEATTIE, THOMAS McCULLOCH, JAMES JACKSON, WILLIAM ARMSTRONG, JAMES ARMSTRONG, and JAMES WEIR were charged with assault, breach of the peace, and malicious mischief, on the 5th of October.

The accused are labourers and miners residing in Stevenston.

The evidence showed that they were members of a party that attacked Charles McCafferty, knocking him down and beating him near the Shore Road, when he was going home to Ardeer Square.

Two men named Paterson and Havelin, who rescued him, were also assaulted.

The accused followed McCafferty to Paterson’s house, threw stones at the door, and broke two panes of glass in the window.

Later on they went to the house of a Pole named Charles Smith and asked for his melodeon. He said it was too late, and told them to go away. They threw stones at the door, and broke several panes of glass in the windows.

One of the witnesses was a Pole named Charles Smith, and as he could not speak English the services of Isabella Ness, from Glengarnock, were secured as an interpreter.

The following were found guilty on both charges and fined one guinea:-

WILLIAM CAMPBELL, JOHN CAMPBELL, THOMAS McCULLOCH, WILLIAM ARMSTRONG, JAMES ARMSTRONG, AND JAMES WEIR.

The remainder of the accused were fined 10s 6d for breach of the peace and malicious mischief, namely:-

ARCHIBALD KENNEDY, WILLIAM BEATTIE, JAMES BEATTIE, and JAMES JACKSON.
