A new order of things, however, prevails now. Such bonds when violated are prosecuted to judgment, and the penalty exacted, if possible.
This is all right, as it has a tendency to make people not only more careful how they take on themselves pecuniary obligations, but to watch over the conduct of those for whom they stand bound as surety.
Yesterday four recognizance were forfeited before Judge Lyons. Henry B. Krebbs, two, cases--one for breach of peace, after previously entering into bond, and one for not appearing to answer the latter, after giving a recognizance so to do. The bond of Mike Walls to keep the peace was declared forfeited; also that of Mary McCarroll.
Process was issued against Thomas Mulligan, her surety.
It appeared that the latter had gone bail for her when she was charged with threatening to wallop Patrick Muldowney.
Afterwards she broke the peace by assaulting and beating Mary McDonough.
It is right that people should pay for their fun of this kind.
