Times (London)
Thursday, 21 March 1889


At the THAMES Police-court, before Mr. Saunders, LEWIS DIEMSCHUTZ, an unlicensed hawker, of 40, Berner-street, St. George's-in-the-East, SAMUEL FRIEDMAN, cap blocker, of 31, Weaver-street, Spitalfields, and ISAAC KOZENBRODSKE, machinist, of 40 Old Ford-road, Bethnal-green, surrendered to their bail on a charge of being disorderly persons, and concerned together in assaulting Israel Sunshine, Isaac Solomons, Emanuel Snapper, Emanuel Jacobs and Julius Barnett. They were further charged with assaulting Constables Frost, 154H, and George Harris, 269H, while in the execution of their duty. Mr. W. M. Thompson defended. The conflict arose out of the procession of the Jewish unemployed, which demonstration was organised by the Socialists, to the great Tabernacle on Saturday last. The evidence showed that after the demonstration the Socialists adjourned to their club in Berner-street, St. George's, before which a large crowd gathered. Suddenly some 30 of the Socialists rushed out of the club and attacked the people with sticks and other weapons, including a saucepan. The prisoners were sworn to as being the ringleaders, while Friedman was heard to say, " I will do for some one to night, and done care if I get 12 months for it." Constable Frost told Friedman he was a police officer, and tried to stop him from striking one of the witnesses, but he took no notice of him. Diemschutz afterwards made a savage kick at witness, and the blow caught him on the leg. Frost was then dragged into the club, where he was assaulted by a number of men and a woman. During the struggle the prisoner Kozenbrodske struck him a blow on the head with a broom handle. That prisoner also struck Constable Harris a blow on the side of his head. After hearing further evidence, Mr. Saunders committed the prisoners for trial. They were allowed out on the same bail as before.
