From the Kentish Chronicle, 23 June, 1860.

Francis Thompson, of the "Prince of Orange Inn," appeared to answer a summons for assaulting George Furner, on the 8th inst. The defendant pleaded not guilty.

Complainant deposed: I live at 49, High-street. On the 8th inst. I was on the Belle Vue Hill, between three and four, soliciting orders for my master. Mr. Hewitt, when defendant said if I came opposite his house touting he would kick me off. I said nothing, and passed on to a grocer's shop on the hill, which is defendant's, I wanted to speak to the person who was in there. I had hardly got in when complainant followed me in. He asked me what I wanted there; it was his property. I told him I did not want him nor his property, upon which he pushed me off the step of the pavement into the road and struck me, and I then returned it.

Defendant said he did not strike Furner until he had told him to "come out," and he would give it to him.

Mr. Crofton said it was quite clear that an assault had been committed, by defendant's own admission; but as it arose out of the abominable practice of touting, and the costs were heavy (12s.), the Bench would only fine him 1s.

Money paid.
