Family Histories and Line Fence Relations Before Justice; Attorneys Indulge in Tilts.
Mrs. Crete Brockway and Mrs. Florence Crispell were acquitted yesterday in Justice Bennett’s court yesterday of charges of assault and battery made against them and on which they demanded a trial before a jury. The defendants, residents of Comstock street, were arrested January 24, after a neighborhood quarrel in which they engaged with Mrs. John Schauger [sic] and Mrs. Earl Goodrich. Brooms, stove pokers, snow shovels and curtain rods figured prominently in the testimony that was given yesterday and both sides went into some detail into the history of their long drawn-out troubles.
Feeling between Mrs. Schauger and Mrs. Crispell was very cordial when the Crispells and the Brockways moved to the Comstock street neighborhood. According to Mrs. Crispell, Mrs. Schauger was “too friendly, if anything,” and she related how Mrs. Schauger had warned her against associating with a majority of the other women in the block if she wanted to “amount to anything.”

After a neighborhood encounter between residents of Comstock street early today which the police were called upon to quiet, Miss Crete Brockway and Mrs. Florence Crispell, both of 612 Comstock street were arraigned in justice court this morning on charges of assault and battery.
The warrants charging the offense were made out respectively by John Schauger [sic] and Earl Goodrich. Miss Brockway is charged with striking and otherwise mistreating Mrs. Elizabeth Schauger [sic] and Mrs. Crispell is charged with striking Mrs. Iva Goodrich. In justice court this morning Mrs. Crispell pleaded not guilty and her trial was set for January 27. Miss Brockway pleaded guilty and was told to appear in justice court on January 27.

The quarrel, according to the police who were called at 6:30 this morning to quiet it, started from some undetermined cause but it soon grew into “some scrap,” as one of the women expressed it in court. Stove pokers and snow shovels were used to advantage by the women before they could be parted, police say.
