Civic Assault.-Yesterday Mr. Alderman Flood, J P., appeared at the Court of Quarter Sessions to take his trial for assaulting Mr. J. R. Holden, one of the Councillors for Brisbane Ward. It appeared that, in the City Council, Mr Flood asserted that Mr. Holden had
called the City Council "ideots," and used other disrespectful language respecting them as a body: this Mr. Holden denied. Mr
Flood considered this denial an insult, and the next day meeting Mr Holden in the
Town Clerk's office, he struck him on the face, and told him to consider that his nose had been pulled. This constituted the assault complained of. The jury found the defen- dant guilty, and the Court sentenced him to
pay a fine of £50.
