Disturbing the "Harmy." [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 11 April 1889
Disturbing the "Harmy." WILLIAM COLEMAN, while in a state of intoxication yesterday evening, amused himself by annoying the gathering of howlers, drummers, and blazers, which gathers nightly on the reserve close by the post office, and holds what is called a service. He was arrested by the police, &nbsp; and would probably have been let off lightly this morning in the police court for what was little more than an act of retaliation for the annoyance caused by this noisy "worship" to the general &nbsp; public; but he had also indulged in obscene language last night. This offence could not be overlooked, and brought upon the accused a fine of £1, with the alternative of 14 days imprisonment. For being drunk and disorderly he was fined only 5s, with the alternative of a 24 hours spell in the lockup.

Not Wise. A MAN named Frederick Wise, who owned to being 59 years old, was pre- sented to Mr. Gower, P.M., this morning, charged with having been drunk in Argent-street yesterday afternoon, and having then wilfully broken the window of William O'Connor. He pleaded &nbsp; guilty, and expressed his sorrow for what he had done. Mr. Gower told him that at his age he ought to be ashamed of him- self for behaving in this manner. Mr. &nbsp; &nbsp; O'Connor stated that the man came into his office drunk, and would not leave, and on being pushed out, deliberately put his arm through the glass. Wise was ordered &nbsp; to pay 10s., the amount of the damage, and a fine of £1 ; in default, levy in &nbsp; distress or a week in gaol.
