2) Sad Shooting Accident near Ballymena - Yesterday morning a young man named William John Watt, of Ballee, a little over a mile from Ballymena, reported to the constabulary at Harryville that a man who had been out fowling had been shot close to where Watt resides. Sergeant Dugdale, accompanied by Constables Hadden and Flannigan, at once proceeded to the place, and found the injured man, George McMullen, Sadder, Linenhall Street, Ballymena, lying in a dangerous condition in the house of Mr. Watt at Ballee. McMullen was conscious, although in a weak state from haemorrhage, and was able to corroborate the statement that the severe injuries which he has received were accidental. It seems that the injured man, in company with his cousin, Robert Henry McMullen, had been out in the locality of Ballee and were shooting at some pigeons at shortly after eight o'clock that morning. They were afterwards proceeding down a field in the neighbourhood, the injured man walking slightly in advance and on the left hand side of his cousin, Robert McMullen. Each of them carried a double0barrelled gun, and both firearms were at "full cock." In some unaccountable way, and by mere accident, the left barrel of the gun which Robert McMullen was carrying suddenly discharged, and the shot from it lodged in his cousin George's right side immediately below the lung, leaving a frightful gash in the injured man's side. Dr. McWhirter and Dr. D'Evelyn were communicated with, and arrived promptly on the scene, and gave most valuable assistance in attending to the deceased's injuries. The medical gentlemen upon examination of the injured man held out no hope for his recovery. The occurrence was subsequently reported by Sergeant Dugdale to District-Inspector Hardy. The police remained at the place where the injured man lay and rendered all the assistance in their power in the circumstances. Pending a magisterial inquiry into the case, Robert McMullen was detained in custody in Harryville Barrack. At three o'clock yesterday afternoon he was brought before Mr. Thomas Burns, J.P., and formerly admitted to bail. Up to the time of writing the injured man lies in a very precarious condition.  Friday night.  As anticipated, owing to the very serious nature of the case, George McMullen succumbed to his injuries this evening, death taking place at about five o'clock. Great sympathy is expressed with his wife and family in their sad bereavement.

A Dog Case, John Finlay, of 54 Parkmount Street, processed James Russell, of 21 Moyola Street, to recover £4 10s, for the trover of a collie bitch, which the plaintiff alleged to be his property. Mr. Henry Hanna (instructed by Mr. A. F. Wright) appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. W. Harper represented the defendant. The plaintiff said he was a clerk in the employment of Mr. H. McNeile McCormick. He got a collie puppy from John Rea on the 15th March, the dog having been born on the 12th of January. On the 16th September his father lost the dog, and on the 20th September he advertised the loss. On the 22nd October the puppy came back, and on the 31st of that month the defendant, through the instrumentality of another young man, got possession of the dog. He went to the defendant's house to get the animal, but Mr. Russell said the bitch was his, not witness's. Mr. Harper - what we say is that the plaintiff had our dog for a considerable time. Mr. Hanna - and that we stole it? Mr. Harper - Pardon me, I did not say that, but you apparently know what I ought to say. (Laughter) The plaintiff further said that the bitch was called "Nettle" by him, but it would answer to any name. The defendant said his bitch was called "Nora." He got the puppy from Mr. James Fleming, of the Edinburgh Castle, York Road, in May, the puppy having been born in April. He was absolutely certain the bitch which the plaintiff claimed was his (Mr. Russell's) property. Mr. Fleming and quite a number of other witnesses gave like testimony. His Honour said that the plaintiff had failed to prove the dog was his, and he would give a "dismiss on the merits."
Harbinson v. Gregg - This was an action brought by Wm. Harbinson against the Messrs. Gregg, for the recovery of the price of a horse, value for about £11 5s, which was rendered useless to him through a timber van belonging to the defendants colliding with it. The evidence for the plaintiff was that the defendants' van was on the wrong side of the road, and the projecting timber knocked down plaintiff's horse. The animal was so much injured that it had to be destroyed. The defence was a denial of any knowledge of the collision complained of. His Honour held the defendants liable, and gave a decree for £11 5s, with 20s witnesses' expenses. Mr. McErlean appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Henry Hanna (instructed by Messrs. Love & Alexander) appeared for the defendants. The Court then adjourned until eleven o'clock this (Saturday) morning.

Belfast Police Courts Yesterday
Custody Court [Before Messrs. Garrett Nagle, R.M., and William McCormick]; Larceny Cases - Thomas Brannigan was charged with the larceny of a purse containing 10s 4d and three pawn tickets from Maggie Lappin. District-Inspector Kelly prosecuted in this and the other police cases. The evidence showed that the prisoner and Lappin were in a public-house in Smithfield on Thursday evening. In that house witness missed her purse, and she charged the accused with the larceny of it. A remand until Tuesday was granted, bail being allowed. - Constable Irvine charged Mary Taggart with the larceny of £1 10s, the property of Thomas Daly, Mr. Bryan McErlean defended. It appeared that Daly met two women in Church Lane on Thursday night. They asked Daly to stand a drink. He consented, and took them to a public house. On coming out, witness and prisoner met two other women, one of whom took Daly's purse out of his trousers pocket, and handed it to the prisoner, who ran away with it. The case was remanded until Tuesday.
Alexander Cooke was charged with the larceny of a quantity of lead piping from a vacant house in Eglinton Street. A constable deposed to arresting the prisoner. After being cautioned, he stated that at noon on the 15th inst. he and another boy named Baxter went down Eglinton Street. Baxter went round to the back, and returned with the lead piping in his hand. Baxter's mother, he said, told him to take the pining to Smithfield and sell it. In order that Baxter might be brought up in custody and further evidence produces, a remand was granted till Tuesday.
Interfering with the Police - Patrick McCoy, Hamilton Street, was charged on remand with having seriously assaulted Constable Joseph Baird in the execution of his duty on the Lisburn Road on the morning of the 15th inst. Prisoner pleaded for a chance, as this was his first offence. Mr. Nagle said that, taking into consideration the injuries the prisoner had received and the serious nature of the case, only six weeks imprisonment would be imposed.
Patrick Donnelly was charged with having been drunk and disorderly on Thursday. The constable stated that when he was coming from the Summons Court the accused shoved him with his shoulder, almost knocking him off the footpath. The prisoner stated to the Bench that he was under the influence of liquor at the time. Fined 10s and costs.
Prisoners Discharged - Constable Trinder charged John Thompson and William Cameron with having entered the yard of the Glenravel Street Barrack on Thursday night for an unlawful purpose. The constable stated that at midnight he was on duty in Henry Place, when he observed the prisoners climbing over the gate of the barrack yard, which is about nine feet high. When they noticed witness they dropped into the yard, and were afterwards arrested. One of the prisoners stated from the dock that they had just left at the time one of the dragoons to the soldiers' barracks, and were returning home when arrested. They denied having been in the barrack yard, and were discharged.
Summons Court [Before Messrs. J. A. Doran and James Johnston] The Vaccination Acts - Thomas Rea, 135 Ormeau Road, was summoned by the Guardians of the Poor for failing to have his child vaccinated in accordance with the Act of Parliament. Mr. William Harper prosecuted for the Guardians. Mr. N. Tughan, who appeared for the defendant, asked for a copy of the Guardians' resolution authorising the proceedings. Mr. Harper said that his appearance as an officer of the Guardians was sufficient to show that the Guardians had intended to proceed in the case. The Bench accepted Mr. Harper's appearance. Dr. Torrens proved that the mother had registered the child's birth with him, and that the child had never been presented to him for vaccination since that time. Andrew Torrans, an officer of the Guardians, said that he had called with the parents on the 3rd inst., when Mr. Rea stated that he did not believe in vaccination. Dr. Graham proved that he had declined to vaccinate the child, as it had been physically unfit to undergo such an operation. He would vaccinate the infant in two months' time from the present if it were able to stand the operation. Their Worships adjourned the case for two months.
Mr. S. E. Allworthy, 62 Eglantine Avenue, was summoned by the same authority for a similar offence. Mr. Harper prosecuted. Mr. Allworthy stated that he thought the Act of 1898 would have excused him. Mr. Harper pointed out that the Act only applied to England. The magistrates imposed a fine of 1s and 12s 6d costs.

Fatal Fight on Board a Steamer - At the Londonderry Recorder's Court yesterday a case was heard arising out of a fight on board the steamer Brantwood at the quay in October last. Thomas Cassidy, belonging to Belfast, boatswain of the steamer, was indicted for the manslaughter of Hugh Fullerton, of Donaghadee, who also belonged to the Brantwood. Mr. Maxwell, who pleaded guilty for the prisoner, said that he had advised his client to do this, although the depositions showed the affair was an accident, and that Fullerton provoked the fight, which ended in the combatants falling overboard, Fullerton being drowned. The prisoner had got an excellent character from his captain. The Recorder said that the prisoner was in law guilty of manslaughter, but he was glad to be able to say that the fight, according to the informations, appeared to have been a fair one. There was nothing mean or shabby about it, except perhaps the circumstance that there should not have been a fight at all. But he thought that neither of the men had reckoned upon going over the edge of the vessel into the water. Under all the circumstances he would sentence the prisoner to a month from the date of his committal, which would expire that day, so that the prisoner was discharged on entering into his own bail of £20 to be of good behaviours for the next twelve months.
