§ 29th July, 1889.
§ We beg leave to inform you that we have to-day convicted Dr. Chas. K. D. Tanner, a Member of the House of Commons for Mid Cork, of the offence of assaulting County Inspector S. H. Stephens, of the Royal Irish Constabulary, while in the execution of his duty, under "The Criminal Law and Procedure (Ireland) Act, 1887," and have sentenced him to one month's imprisonment, and that he is at present in the prison at Clonmel. And further, that Dr. C. K. D. Tanner having outrageously misbehaved and wilfully insulted the Magistrates during the hearing of the case, the Court adjudged and ordered that he should find bail to be of good behaviour, and in default of so doing he should be imprisoned for three calendar months, and Dr. C. K. D. Tanner has refused to give bail as ordered by the Court.
§ We have the honour to be,
§ Your obedient servants
|J. VESEY FITZGERALD,||Resident Magistrates.|
