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.”
