Inspector Herwin

Post by Karen on Tue 31 May 2011 - 13:34

Inspector Herwin of the H Division, Whitechapel was mentioned in an Echo article that I posted up this week. He was one of the first officers on the scene and stated that the body of Alice Mackenzie was still very warm.

PAPOOSES IN A POLICE COURT.
APPLICATION FOR CHILDREN TO JOIN IN A WAR DANCE.

A band of forty-two Indians, including braves, squaws, and papooses, with tomahawks and feather head-dresses, "invaded" the West London Police Court yesterday.
"What does all this mean?" exclaimed Mr. Lane, in alarm, when he saw the well of his court occupied by untutored savages in full war paint.
Mr. F.A. Burton, who organised the Earl's Court Indian village, stated that he wished to apply for licenses for five Indian children who were in the encampment and joined in the war dances.
Their names are: - Edna Wigwas, 13; Ida Wigwas, 10; John Lesage, 11; Annie White Flower, 10; Morning Star Scarface, 10.
Inspector Herwin explained that the police had drawn attention to the provisions of the Prevention of Cruelty to Children Act of 1904, which forbid any child being "exhibited for profit."
Mr. Burton submitted that the children were with their parents, but if their appearance was an infringement of the law he would ask the magistrate to grant the usual licenses.
While these matters were being discussed the elders of the tribe gazed stolidly at the speakers, while the children crawled about the court and chattered.
One fat little papoose wandered into the dock, and did not appear to feel its position very acutely.
Finally, Mr. Lane granted the licenses.
