fined for failing to pick up passengers. In an unusual case at Belfast Summons Court yesterday Henry Francis Casey, bus conductor, Zetland Street, was fined 2s. and ordered to pay 40s. costs for "neglecting to comply with the requirements of intending passengers" Albert Potter, an Agnes Street shopkeeper, told the court that when Casey's bus stopped near his shop he failed to take on some school children who were obviously waiting for it, although there were unoccupied seats in the vehicle. He (Potter) ran across the footpath, jumped on the bus and told Casey that "there is too much of this sort of thing going on" and he would put a stop to it. In cross examination Potter explained that as none of the children were his, he had no personal interest in the matter, now was he waiting for the bus himself. Casey, who was granted bail for appeal, contended that he had a full complement of passengers and his bus was followed by a relief vehicle.
Boy (12) for trial on murder charge. George Edward Crick, a 12 and a half year old schoolboy, of Pleasant Way, Alperton, was, at Ealing Juvenile Court yesterday, committed for trial to the Old Bailey, charged with the murder of Stanley Victor Graves (4), Fraser Road, Perivale, at Perivale, on October 24.  The magistrates gave the Press permission to publish the name of the accused boy.  Mr. Maurice Crump, prosecuting, said that Graves left his house to play on October 24.  He and Crick were later seen together on a bicycle, Graves riding on the cross-bar.  When Graves did not return home a search was started and Crick took part in it.  Crick started off by denying that he knew anything about it but as time went on he said more and more about it in conversation with them during the search.  After giving various versions which were found to be incorrect Crick eventually admitted that the missing boy was in the river.  "He Slipped Into The River"  Mr. Crump said the body was discovered in the River Brent and the cause of death was asphyxia due to drowning. In addition there was a wound on the head caused by a blow and sufficient to have caused Graves to become unconscious. The blow on the side of the head  was made before death.  A police inspector said that Crick, after being asked by his father to tell the truth and say whether the boy was in the river, said:- "He slipped into the river, dad, and I pulled him out, but after that I gave him a push and he went in. He went right under the water and then came up. He said something as he floated away. I do not know what it was. I was so scared I went straight home."  Mr. Ferris submitted that there was no case to answer and said the defence was being reserved.

South Antrim Regiment, Sham Battle at Stoneyford, 2,800 Volunteers Engaged - Yesterday the whole of the South Antrim Regiment of the U.V.F., of which Captain Pakenham is the commander-in-chief, was engaged in a mimic war, which was carried on over a very extensive district stretching from Colin Mountain to the village of Stoneyford. The general idea was briefly, A Red force of about a battalion, forming the advance guard of two brigades at Ballymena, was at Antrim. A Blue force of about two battalions, representing the advanced guard of two brigades at Hillsborough, was at Lisburn. War had been declared between the two countries on 1st August. Neither force had any cavalry or artillery, but there were cyclists on both sides. The training and morale of both forces were equal, both being composed of citizen soldiers, who had not at the outbreak of war much training in the field. The capital of Redland was Coleraine, and that of Blueland Newry, and they were respectively the objective of the opposing armies. The frontier was represented by a line drawn through Glenavy to Belfast, the main road from Antrim to Lisburn, via Crumlin, Glenavy, and Ballinderry, being out of bounds.  The officer commanding the troops at Lisburn (Mr. A. P. Jenkins) received a message from the officer commanding the Blue army on 2nd August to the following effect:- "Information received from one of our spies that he observed a force of the enemy - strength about one battalion - billeted in Antrim on 1st inst., the outposts being thrown out from the main road from Antrim to Crumlin, to Muckamore facing south. The force was to advance on the evening of the 2nd on Lisburn by Killead, Dundrod, and Stoneyford. You will advance tomorrow as soon as possible with the 1st and 2nd Battalions S.A.R., and endeavour to drive back this force before they are reinforced, if possible turning their right flank and cutting their communications with Antrim."  Lord Massereene was in command of the Red force, and Mr. Jenkins and Captain Blair Oliphant, F.O., of the Blue force. The latter started from Lisburn about 10.30, their march to the base of the mountain range being up hall all the way.  Unhappily, heavy rain fell during most of the journey, but this did not appear to damp the enthusiasm of the citizen soldiers. The battalions were at full strength with a complete equipment, and carried guns with a number of rounds of blank cartridges.  Arriving at the junction of the Castlerobin and Stoneyford Roads the companies were distributed largely over the face of the mountains. The first shots were fired at Bryan's Hill, after which there was a good deal of desultory firing once the enemy's positions were located. The advance up Aughrim Hill in extended order to cut off a flanking movement was a pretty and at the same time thrilling spectacle. For miles around the country seemed to be alive with men moving quickly from field to field and cover to cover.  It was near four o'clock when the main bodies came into touch, and for half an hour there was lively volley firing on either side, the final charge being most exciting.  Throughout the action the rain fell incessantly, putting the men to the severest test, which they submitted to splendidly, and were warmly complimented at the close of hostilities. The operations were closely followed by a large assemblage of townspeople and country folk. The battalions were entertained to tea and sandwiches on the roadside.
Volunteers Fired At In Tyrone - A report has reached Omagh that on the last drill night of the U.V.F. at Fintona, as half a dozen Ulster Volunteers were passing through that town on their way home, a revolver shot was fired at them. The U.V.F. men passed on, deciding not to retaliate unless further shots were fired. The miscreant did not discharge any further shots.
Mr. William Montgomery, A Land reformer of the 60's - The venerable founder and head of the eminent firm of William Montgomery & Son, auctioneers and estate agents, of 2 Wellington Place, Belfast, and 1 and 2 Foster Place, Dublin, died on Sunday at his residence, 70 Eglantine Avenue. Owing to his great age, he was in his 90th year, and the fact that for the last twenty years he had lived chiefly in retirement, Mr. Montgomery was almost unknown in the local political world of today, although half a century back he occupied a prominent place as a progressive Liberal, and especially as a land reformer. He was one of the last survivors of a band of Ulster Liberals who, prior to 1870, carried on a vigorous crusade on behalf of the farmer, a hand which included Samuel Black, of Randalstown; Rev. Archibald Robinson, of Broughshane; and John Shaw Brown, Thomas Sinclair, and W. D. Henderson, of Belfast. A vigorous and fluent speaker and possessing a thorough knowledge of the grievances under which farmers then suffered, he was a welcome figure upon many a land reform and election platform, and certainly did his part in bringing about the first great Land Bill of 1870. Mr. Montgomery was not only a politician but a keen and successful business man. He began business for himself in Portadown, his native town, in 1863, as auctioneer and estate agent, and, as his connection had extended largely to Belfast, he finally settled in the city in 1868, adding to his general business that of fire-loss assessor, in which he became a specialist, and which extended to many parts of the country. In 1880 he was joined by his eldest son, Harford H. Montgomery, and the firm has since continued to transact a large business under the title of William Montgomery & Son. The Dublin branch was opened in 1881, and since 1888 has been under the management of his son William. Keen, enterprising, and industrious, deceased built up a very extensive connection in town and country, which his reputation for probity and straightforwardness enabled him to retain, and it was his boast that while most actively engaged in political work on behalf of the agricultural community generally he never neglected for a moment the interests of a client. Mr. Montgomery was a Methodist , and one of the oldest members of the University Road Church. He took deep and practical interest in the Methodist body, and at one time or another held nearly all the offices open to laymen. For many years he was president of the Belfast Local Preachers' Association, and frequently occupied pulpits in the city. He was a member of the Masonic Order and master of a Lurgan lodge sixty years ago. It is worth noting that he had as colleagues in the founding of Lodge 243 in Belfast the late Right Rev. Dr. Welland, Bishop of Down, and the present Primate, Right Rev. Dr. Crozier. The deceased was born in 1825, his father, Mr. Harford Montgomery, being a merchant in Portadown. He was sent to Bristol to be educated, and subsequently went to America. On his return he was engaged in the linen business until, as above stated, he founded the firm which he afterwards developed so successfully. Mr. Montgomery used to recount that his grandfather, John Montgomery, took part in the "Battle of the Diamond" in 1795, and was one of the founders of the Orange Institution.  Deceased was married in 1854 to Miss M. Higginbotham, of Cootehill, who predeceased him in 1895. By all who knew him either privately or in business Mr. Montgomery was deservedly respected, and while the news of his death will, considering his patriarchal age, cause no surprise, it will be generally and sincerely regretted.
What Martial Law Means
- Martial law is not law at all, in the ordinary sense of the term. The proclamation of martial law means the suspension of all laws, of all ordinary authority, of all civil jurisdiction, all civil rights, and all personal liberty. It means that everything must be subordinated to military necessities - business, pleasure, even the private life of the citizen, who may no longer come and go and work and play as he would, but must obey any restrictions that may be placed on his movements or actions.  The rights of property, the right to exercise control over one's belongings, the right of public meeting, and of free speech - all rights enjoyed in peace time disappear under martial law.  The military authorities may take anything for their own use, from the horse or the motor car of the private individual to a factory or railway system or a line of steamships, and that without any payment.  They may stop all commercial or industrial operations, they may order the population to be in their homes by a certain hour, they may seize all food or other supplies, they may fix the price at which commodities may be sold, and they may suppress the publication of all news and the sending of any letters and telegrams. Freedom of circulation is always suspended under martial law, and those persons who are abroad at this moment and desire to return home may find it difficult to do so. The functions of civil courts and civil authorities, such as the police, cease under martial law. All offences are tried before military tribunals summarily, and any penalty up to the extreme penalty of death may be awarded. There is no appeal from such judgments. All this sounds very terrible, but it is necessary under the stress of war. General existence under martial law has never been known in England in modern times, but the experience may be at hand.
Killed by a Motor Car - At Dyke Road, Brighton, on Sunday a taxicab narrowly escaped collision with a motor car. In avoiding the collision the taxi swerved. Edith Jackeman, of Leamington, who was sitting on the front seat, fell off, and was instantly killed by the motor car.
Belfast Police - Yesterday - Custody Court
(Before Mr. Garrett Nagle, R.M.)
A Serious Assault - John George Doak, a young man living at 7 Ambrose Street, was charged by Constable Gallivan with assaulting Robert T. Fenton, 23 Well Street, on June 21st. Mr. A. A. Macauley defended. The prosecutrix stated that on Sunday, June 21st, at 6.30 a.m., he was out for a walk with his wife, and when passing down Nelson Street the prisoner, who was standing with other men, rushed at him and struck him on the forehead, knocking him down. While he was on the ground the prisoner jumped on him and broke his leg. In consequence he was detained in hospital for a month. Cross-examined, witness said he put his hands up to the prisoner, but only in self defence. Accused, who pleaded not guilty, was returned for trial to the Recorder's Court, bail being allowed.
Assault on Police - Patrick Gordon, 51, Great Patrick Street, was charged with breaking a plate-glass window and damaging a screen, the property of Mrs. Adgey, Lagan Street. He was also charged with assaulting Constable McCarthy, and damaging his tunic. Mr. T. M. McLernon appeared for accused, who was sentenced to four months' imprisonment.
Woman's 181st Appearance - Agnes McCann, of no fixed abode, was charged with a street offence. It was stated that this was the prisoner's 181st appearance, and she was fined 40s. As she left the dock she remarked to Mr. Garrett Nagle, "Thank you, your Worship, and long may you reign with the Crown above you." (Laughter)

Obituary - Rev. H. McKnight, M.A.
We regret to announce the death, which took place on Saturday at a private nursing home in Belfast, of the Rev. Henry McKnight, M.A., T.C.D., rector of Kilkeel.

For some time he was secretary of the Church of Ireland Young Men's Society in Belfast. About thirty years ago he was ordained by the Bishop of Salisbury in Salisbury Cathedral for the curacy of Corscombe, Dorsetshire, and some time later was appointed curate of Weymouth.

Dr. Samuel Heron, Portadown
The death occurred yesterday at his residence in Bridge Street of Dr. Samuel Heron, an old and well-known resident of Portadown. Dr. Heron, who was recognised as a very skilful medical man, had been attending to his professional duties up to quite recently, so that his death comes as a surprise to many of the towns-people. He was a member of the Armagh Road Presbyterian Church, and in politics a Liberal. (click here to go to image 1 above for full details)

Belfast Custody Court
Before Mr. Garrett Nagle, R.M., in the Belfast Custody Court on Saturday, a youth named James Verner, of East Street, was charged with the larceny of an overcoat, the property of William J. Wilson, of Bentinck Street. The latter stated that he was at a dance in Ye Olde Castle Restaurant on Easter Monday evening, and he left his overcoat in the cloakroom. When he went to look for it the overcoat was missing. The prisoner was also at the dance, and was the only man there in evening dress. William J. Allen, pawnbroker, Cromac Street, gave evidence as to the prisoner pawning the overcoat with him. Witness advanced 12s. Mr. J. Graham, defending, said that was the prisoner's first offence. He was in respectable employment, and was the only support of his mother, who was a widow. On the occasion he seemed to have yielded to a sudden temptation, and was now very sorry. His mother would repay the pawnbroker the money he had advanced. The accused was dealt with under the Probation of Offenders Act.

Efforts by the husband and the lady's mother to rescue her were unavailing, although she floated ten minutes before disappearing. The body has not been recovered.

To Reduce Weight, 100 in Case of Failure

Newry Council and Dublin Tragedy - At Newry Urban Council yesterday, Mr. H. J. McConville, J.P. (chairman), presiding, Mr. Ruddy proposed the following resolution:- "That we express our sincere sympathy with the people of Dublin in the bereavement sustained by them in the tragic death of their fellow-citizens, and we call upon the Government to bring the guilty parties to justice."  Mr. Fisher, in seconding, said he would like to state his view on this matter. If the resolution had been brought up there one week ago it would have been couched in extremely stronger terms than it was that day.  It showed that while they held extremely strong views they were desirous of not hurting the feelings of their opponents at the present time.  Mr. Willis regretted that he did not see his way to associate himself with the resolution.  From his (Mr. Willis's) reading of the matter, and from his observations, he could see that the soldiers were quietly pursuing their way to the military barrack when they were attacked by a violet mob, and he could not distinguish between the man who fired a stone behind a man's back and the man who fired a revolver. IT would be much wiser for them to leave this matter alone, and let it be judged by a higher court than theirs.  Mr. O'Rorke said if he was not astray Mr. Willis himself proposed or seconded a resolution of sympathy at the time of the late King's death.  Mr. Willis - That's a bit far-fetched - the Sovereign of the empire.  Mr. O'Rorke - Not a bit more far-fetched than yours. Proceeding, Mr. O'Rorke said with regard to the military, so far as he knew they suffered nothing worth talking about.  The resolution was passed, Mr. Willis dissenting.
