    "STREET FRACAS
    NATIONALITIES CLASH
    In the Police Court yesterday, before Mr W Harris, P M, Gerhard Strasser proceeded against William Cook for the assault, on Thursday, August 17, in Ruthven Street.
    Mr. C. Hennessy (Hennessy and Hennessy) appeared for complainant, and Mr F T Brennan for defendant. Defendant pleaded not guilty.
    Gerhard Strasser, labourer, deposed that on Thursday, August 17, he was coming down Ruthven street in the company of John Wisnieski. When passing the White Horse Hotel they were having a conversation, and witness saw defendant, who was leaning against a post. As witness and his companion were passing defendant said, 'What are you talking Germanfor? Why don't you talk English?" At the time, witness averred, they were speaking in broken English. Witness walked on a little, and called to Wisnieski, 'Come on, don't take any notice of him,' but Wisnieski stood talking to the defendant. Witness never heard what they said. A few minutes later, when , witness was near the post, on the corner of Margaret and Ruthven
    Streets, Wisnieski came up to him and. 'I want a policeman to deal with this man. I will give him a charge.' Witness and his friend crossed to Cramond and Stark's , to see if there was a constable about, but did not see one. They crossed again to the ABC Bank corner. Defendant came up to them and to Wisnieski, 'Hello, how are you getting on?' Wisnieski replied, 'Alright, what sort of a man are you, you call us Germans, and now you come up smiling. I don't like
    that.' Witness took no notice, and turned his head, away. There was some talk between Wisnieski and defendant and then defendant hit Wisnieski in the face and witness on the hand,
    which had been poisoned, and which was resting on his left hip. Defendant hit Wisnieski first, and then said, 'I'll knock you two Germans together. Defendant then hit witness. Immediately after the incident witness saw
    Constable Quinn come up and heard him say, 'I know him.' and then the constable gave witness defendant's name on a piece of paper, and told him to go to the CPS office. Witness said to defendant in the presence of the constable, ' If my hand were right I would give you such a hiding that you would not be able to sit down for weeks. Witness's fingers swelled, and he consulted a doctor a little time afterwards, and had been in hospital. Witnesshad never spoken to defendant in his life, and did not remember ever having seen him. Witness had been in no trouble in Australia.
    By Mr. Brennan: Witness did not think Wisnieski, summoned defendant because he was afraid to spent 4s 6p.
    The language Wisnieski spoke was Polish-German. Witness could speak every language used in Germany, but has never spoken German in Australia. Witness did not know why defendant hit him. John Wisnieski, engine-driver, gave similar evidence as to meeting between the parties. Witness saw defendant leaning leaning against post and heard him say very insultingly, ' Why don't you talk English, you pair of Germans? Strasser walked on, and witness stopped, speaking to defendant. Witness explained to him that he was not a German, saying, ' I was not speaking German, it was not your place to call me German. You don't know me, and I don't know you.' Continuing witness stated defendant hit him on the face and made it bleed. He also hit
    Strasser on the hand with his fist, and at the time Strasser jumped back and exclaimed 'Oh! my finger.'.
    Constable Quinn came on the scene Witness did not provoke defendant to hit him. When defendant first spoke to them they were speaking English.
    Witness always spoke English, and had not spoken German since war broke out. Witness was a Pole.
    This closed the case for complainant.
    William Cook, defendant , in the case and a horse-breaker, state he had enlisted in the Expeditionary Forces and was to leave Toowoomba to enter camp on Wednesday next. On Thursday August 17, he was talking to Jack Deignan and was leaning against a
    post in Ruthven Street. Witness saw Strasser and the last witness coming down near the White Horse Hotel. They attracted witness's attention by their speaking in German. They were not speaking in broken English. Witness did not leave his position but said to them, 'What are you speaking in German for? You are in Australia now! Complainant called witness a liar, and added, 'We are not talking in German.' Wisnieski made insulting reference to witness' British nationality.
    Witness then hit complainant and Wisnieski, and both went down. He(witness), struck Wisnieski on the mouth and complainant on the jaw. He only gave them one punch each.
    Complainant then ran towards the Club Hotel and came back with Constable Quinn. Witness did not move from where he was, but hit them when he spoke to them the first time. Witness could speak German but was prepared to swear they were not speaking English. It made witness wild when he heard a man speaking German.
    Jack Deignan, drover, gave evidence for the defence and defendant was convicted and fined 1/. professional costs 2/2/0 and cost of Court 2/6— 2/6/6 in all.'
