At the Thames Police Court, John Pozer, 36, was charged with stabbing James Willis, a boot finisher, of 19a William street, St. George's. On Wednesday afternoon, shortly after 3 o'clock, prosecutor was engaged at work at 42 Morgan street. The window was open, and Pozer put his head through the window, and said, "No wonder I can't get any work when you have got it all." Prosecutor's employer told him to order the accused away. He got up to do so, and when he reached the door Pozer made a lunge at his face with the shoemaker's knife produced. Prosecutor put up his hand to save the blow, when he was stabbed in the back of the hand. The prisoner was sentenced to six months' imprisonment, with hard labour.
