Constable Hart

Post by Karen on Sat 21 Jul 2012 - 10:11

Constable Hart is mentioned in the book, "Jack the Ripper: An Encyclopedia," on page 124.

FIRING IN THE STREET.

Constable Hart was very early this morning in High-street, Whitechapel, when he heard the report of firearms. He ran towards the spot, when a woman said, "There he goes. He has fired at a cabman." The constable ran after and caught James Preston, a ship's officer, in whose pocket he found a revolver. Preston then said, "I fired at the cabman for a lark"; but it was afterwards found the revolver was loaded in one chamber, and one had been discharged. The cabman, who was frightened, galloped away. At the Thames Police-court, today, Mr. Haden Corser told Preston, if he chose to fire a revolver in the streets, he must take the consequences. He would be remanded in custody for a week.

George William Rowlett, 20, William Bennett, 22, Edward Littleton, 27, and Henry Bennett, 21, labourers, were indicted for stealing and receiving a horse, gig, and harness, value 55 pounds, the property of Charles Joseph Webster, on December 3rd. - Mr. Morrow prosecuted. - Mr. Webster called at the Sea Serpent, beerhouse, High-street, Stratford, for some refreshment, and left his horse and cart outside in charge of a man. After a few minutes he heard the horse move, and going out saw four men in his trap, which was being rapidly driven towards Romford-road. Nothing further was heard of it until the next morning, when Constable Hart, of the Essex Constabulary, saw a trap being driven along Brook-street, in the parish of Brentwood, without a light. He turned his light on, and the horse shied, and pitched two men into the ditch. At the same time he collared the horse, and two other men asked him to mind it while they went to pick up their companions. All four then disappeared, but were subsequently arrested, and charged. They made no reply to the charge, except that they were under the influence of drink. - They all pleaded not guilty, and said they all got into the trap with the intention of having a ride. - After considering their verdict in private, the jury found prisoners not guilty, saying it was only a drunken freak. - Prisoners were discharged. - The Grand Jury commended Constable Hart for his smart conduct in the case.

THIS DAY'S POLICE.
SERIOUS CHARGE DISMISSED.

WANDSWORTH.

A SURGEON FINED FOR ASSAULT. - George Robert Wyatt, F.R.C.S., who resided at Upper Tulse-hill, was charged with disorderly conduct in High-street, Putney, on Sunday night, and assaulting Police-constable Hart in the execution of his duty. - The constable stated that he was called to remove the prisoner from Putney railway station, and was thrown down. - Replying to the magistrate, the prisoner declined to ask the witness any questions. He said the constable was beneath his notice. He stood upon his character and known position. He was willing to answer questions respectfully. - Alfred Teakle, booking-clerk at Putney station, stated that the prisoner came in and asked for a ticket for Brixton. As there was not any train for that place he advised him as to the route he should take. The defendant then abused him, and he was obliged to call a constable to remove him. - The prisoner said he should like to have a specimen of the language if it was convenient for the court to be taken up with such nonsense. - The witness used the expressions which he alleged the accused applied to him. - The prisoner called George Phelps, a boat builder, who stated that he was bail for him. - He always found him to be a thorough gentleman. - Mr. Wyatt then entered upon his defence. He said he had been 50 years in his profession, acting as consulting surgeon and physician. He complained that the booking clerk had behaved impudently. With respect to the constable's conduct, he said that he rushed at him and swung him round. He (the prisoner) then "let him down as easily as possible." He got up and attacked him with great fury. They became locked, and defendant put him on the ground. At the door there was another struggle, and he let him down again.
- Mr. Bennett believed the constable, as he had given his evidence very fairly. He proved only one assault, and the prisoner admitted that he assaulted him three times. - He fined the accused 3 pounds, with the alternative of fourteen days' imprisonment.

"WE'VE GOT NO WORK TO DO!"
March of the Unemployed.

As a result of their West-end march the East-end unemployed on Tuesday shared out 2s. 9d. per man. Yesterday, when there was a repetition of the parade, the number of demonstrators had greatly increased, fully 600 men and youths taking part. Collections were made en route, and police attended to preserve order.
The march is likely to be of daily occurrence for a time, and to increase in numbers.

Charges at Tottenham.

At Tottenham this morning, ten more unemployed demonstrators were brought up, charged with "wandering abroad to beg and gather alms."
Inspector Hart said he saw a procession advancing along the roadway, and saw the men, who had collecting boxes, receive money from passers-by. He ordered their arrest.
Mr. Martin O'Connor appeared for the defence, and submitted that under the Act of 5 George IV - the statute under which these proceedings were taken - a conviction could only stand in the case of "rogues and vagabonds," or "idle and disorderly persons."
The Bench intimated that they had determined to dismiss the summonses, but if this sort of thing were persisted in, he thought these men would come within the scope of the Act.
An application for costs was refused.
