| QUEANBEYAN COURT, Charge Dismissed
At, the Queanbeyan Court of Petty Sessions yesterday, before Mr. W. F. Britz, PM., a, charge against William Cranswick, general . Merchant. Queanbeyan, of having used abusive language to Sergeant North on April 5., was dismissed.
In evidence, Sergeant North said that at about 2.45 p.m. on April 5, he had seen Cranswick driving along Lowe Street near the Cooma road intersection. He had stopped Cranswick and had told him that he was driving at over 40 miles an hour, and that his speed was dangerous, particularly in view of the fact that he was driving past a school. An argument ensued during which Cranswick had told Sergeant North that he was ridiculous , and said, "We all 'know that you are the 'king gee' of this town" Cranswick had also said, continued Sergeant North, "I pay £1,000 a year to keep the likes of you."
Wilfrid Cranswick said that he had not been driving at an excessive speed when he was stopped by Sergeant North. He had examined the marks made by the car when he pulled up and they showed that he had been travelling at a moderate speed
When Sergeant North had spoken to him he had told him he was officious and had also said that he was ridiculous. Sergeant North had asked to see his licence and had told Cranswick that he would remember the number of it. Cranswick had then given him a pencil and paper to write the number down and had also told him the time, remarking that he was badly equipped without pencil, paper or a watch. Cranswick said that he had not used the words "king gee" but had said "king pin."
When Sergeant North suggested coming to his office in the afternoon to get particulars of his car licence, he had told him that he was too busy to see him. Mr. Britz, after questioning Cranswick about his experience of driving, said that there was a reasonable doubt as to what had happened and dismissed the case.
Mr. W. B. Simpson, instructed by Mr. K. C. Codd, appeared for Cranswick.

REUNION AT GISBORNE
FAMILY'S FINE WAR RECORD
11 SERVED THEIR COUNTRY
GISBORNE, Sunday A family record of war service probably without parallel has been revealed in connection with a reunion which took place in Gisborne last week, when six brothers gathered for the first time in 21 years, celebrating the visit of one member of the family resident in New South Wales.
The family contributed the services of 11 members in all to British expeditionary forces during the Great War, eight sons and two daughters surviving the experience and a ninth son being killed in action at Messines in 1917 .
The reunion of six of the brothers in Gisborne was rendered possible by the visit of one, Mr. Wilfred Cranswick, from New South Wales. Wilfred met here his brothers Alan (Tolaga Bay), Edwin (Waimana), Jack (Hicks Bay), Donald (Te Karaka) and Eric (Te Karaka).
A series of family gatherings at the homes of the brothers in the district culminated in a dinner at a hotel in Gisborne, the occasion of the bringing together of all the brothers and their wives.
Two other brothers of the Cranswick family are living in Northumberlnd, England, and Kenya Colony respectively, and the two sisters who served as nurses in the Great War are living, one in England, and the other in British East Africa.
