"NO-RATE CAMPAIGN" IN TUFNELL PARK.

At the Central Criminal Court on Tuesday, Ferdinand Czilinsky, 67, carver, was indicted for feloniously wounding Constable Hyde with intent to murder him. Mr. A. Gill prosecuted, and said the facts of the case were somewhat peculiar. The prisoner had lived in the Tytherton Road, Tufnell Park, for some time, but he had given the local authorities considerable trouble on account of his refusal to pay rates. Distress warrants were obtained, and on the 31st ult. Police Constable Hyde and other officers proceeded to his house to execute them. Admission was obtained, and the prisoner was found in his bedroom. The nature of the visit of the officers was explained, and the prisoner said, "Come in." As Hyde opened the door two thrusts were made at him with a rapier. His uniform was pierced and his thumb was cut. The prisoner was seized. He struggled violently, and at the police-station he said he only regretted that he could not get out his revolver, as he would shoot any policeman and borough councilman, as it was the only way of calling attention to his grievances. In cross-examination, the witness denied that any unnecessary violence was used.
It was urged for the defence that the whole of the disturbance arose over a shilling.
In his examination by Mr. Duncan, who defended, the prisoner said he always thought an Englishman's house was his castle, and that his house could not be entered legally, as was done. In re-examination the prisoner admitted that he knew the police had been watching his house for months to gain admission. He only took his sword to frighten the officers with, and he pleaded that although many people in their excitement used threats they never intended to carry them out.
The jury found the prisoner guilty of unlawful wounding, and he was bound over in his own recognisances in 100 pounds to come up for sentence if called upon.

HOLLOWAY SWORD FIGHT.
Prisoners Bound Over.

Ferdinand Czilinsky, 67, carver, was indicted for feloniously wounding Constable Hyde with intent to murder him.
The facts of the case were somewhat peculiar. Prisoner lived in the Tytherton-road, Tufnell Park, for some time, but he had given the local authorities considerable trouble on account of his refusal to pay rates. Distress warrants were obtained, and on December 31st, Constable Hyde and other officers proceeded to his house to execute them. Admission was obtained, and the prisoner was found in his bedroom. The nature of the visit of the officers was explained, and the prisoner said, "Come in." As Hyde opened the door, two thrusts were made at him with a rapier. His uniform was pierced, and his thumb was cut.
The jury found the prisoner guilty of unlawful wounding.
Mr. Justice Wright, who said he did not think prisoner intended to seriously injure the officer, bound him over to come up for judgment if called upon.
With a merry twinkle in his eye, the old man left the dock, only to be re-arrested as soon as he got outside on a warrant for the non-payment of his rates.

Sons in the Dock.

His two sons took his place in the dock immediately he had left, and evidence against them of conspiring to resist the arrest of their father was given at length.
The evidence given was of a most extraordinary character.
The prisoners gave a total denial to the charges.
They were, however, found guilty, and the judge, after remarking that prisoners had been in custody since January 1st, bound both over to come up for judgment if called upon.
