SACRILEGE – SALTCOATS

A miner from Stevenston, named SAMUEL McKNIGHT, who described himself as a Protestant, exhibited his antipathy to Roman Catholicism in a rather novel fashion on the morning of Sunday last.

He entered the vestibule of the Roman Catholic Chapel, just before the service commenced, with the evident intention of mingling with the worshippers. He seem to linger for a little at the “plate,” and as it was supposed the want of a coin might induce this feeling, he was invited to enter without the aid of an offering. He at once, however, dropped an offering into the receptacle, but had no sooner done so than he raise the plate from off its pedestal, and unceremoniously tossed its contents on the ground outside the door.

His peculiar conduct, as a matter of course, created not a little commotion, which tended to disturb the congregation, and the police were summoned, who at once took the over-zealous Protestant into custody.

For this offence he was brought up at a special J.P. Court on Tuesday – J. G. HALKET, Esquire, presiding – and having pleaded guilty, was sentenced to ten days’ imprisonment.

LICENSING COURT – A SIX DAY LICENSE FOR SALTCOATS

Provost Guthrie presided.

Applications were received from 26 license holders – 2 hotels, 14 public houses, and 10 licensed grocers – and all were granted with the exception of one from James Howie (porter and ale), which was continued to allow the Court to inspect the premises.

A communication was read from the Chief Constable of the county regarding hotel keepers’ licenses. The Court agreed to recommend the hotel keepers to apply next year for six day certificates, which excludes the power to supply bona-fide travellers with excisable liquors on Sundays.

It was intimated that by-laws would be framed and advertised giving the limit for lodging objections.
