      James Sullivan of Avon street was arrested by officer McCue on a warrant last night charging him with assaulting his children. It is said he beat them severely.


      THEIR BACKS WERE BLUE

      James Sullivan?s Cruelty to His Two Little Boys

      The worst case of inhumanity and ignorance which has come up in the Harford police court in many years was before Judge Bill yesterday morning, when James Sullivan of No. 66 Avon street was fined for cruelly beating his little son Mike, aged eight years, and his little son Dan, aged six. The man?s inhuman treatment of his children would have been punished by a long term of imprisonment but for the consideration the court had for the children. When Judge Bill told Sullivan he was unworthy to be called father he expressed the sentiments of all present at the session of court.
      Sullivan?s wife died about three years ago and he has four children, the oldest a girl of ten and one boy younger than the two he abused. The girl does the housework for the family and Sullivan told Judge Bill that he had to lick the children to make them mind.
      The boy Mike was called to the stand to testify against his father. He was told to have no fear and to tell the truth. He said his father licked him with a strap on Wednesday night. He was asked for what reason he had been licked and he said for no reason that he knew of. Sullivan was sitting some distance from the witness box and as he said he could not hear what was being said he was given a seat close beside the witness. Prosecuting Attorney Eberie unloosed the boy?s back to show the court the way he had been abuse by his father. The little boy?s back was completely discolored with black and blue marks and all those present considered the whipping which the boy had received most inhuman. Although Sullivan displayed dense ignorance, he attempted to hoodwink the court by leaving his seat and placing his hand over the boy?s back to cover the marks, but Judge Bill promptly ordered him to resume his seat and remain quiet.
      The boy Dan was ten called to the stand and said that his father had beaten him with a strap on Tuesday night for taking ten cents from Sullivan?s trousers. His waist was also unloosed. His back was also covered with black and blue marks and as bad if nor worse than his brother Mike?s. Mrs. Hallisey of No. 65 Avon street and Mrs. Toner, neighbors of Sullivan, testified that they had frequently heard the children cry and scream.
      Sullivan then took the stand and said he had beaten his children. He beat Mike because he had bought a pie and his it charged to the account of one of the neighbors, who complained to him of what his son had done. The boy was induced to do it, he said, by his sister and he had also beaten the girl. He beat Dan because he had taken ten cents from his trousers pocket. Dan had said he got the ten cents for a pail of coal which he sold, but he did not sell the coal. When asked what he had whipped the children with Sullivan said, Oh, with a small belt which I have about me waist, an in and a half or two inches wide.
      You should be ashamed of yourself for beating your children the way you have, said Judge Bill.
      It?s pretty tough and I am ashamed of myself, said Sullivan, []but, by gor, I got to do something to keep them down.
      What was that remark you made? asked the court.
      I said I was ashamed of myself.
      You said something else,? said Judge Bill.
      Well, if I did say anything that wasn?t right I am sorry, but I don?t know now what I did say. You must know I am no great speaker, sir.?
      I should send you to jail,? said Judge Bill.
      What good would that do, to send me to jail? What would the children do then? There is enough in jail now. Sure the jail is full. I don?t want to go there. I was never locked up before and I have five brothers and not one of them was ever arrested.?
      Judge Bill gave Sullivan a warning about the treatment of his children in the future and fined him $15 and costs on each count.
      When the sentence was imposed Sullivan said, ?Fifteen dollars, for Heaven?s sake where would I get $15? I haven?t $15 in the world.?
      After the session of the court the little children stood in front of the police station and all were crying. Mike went inside and asked how much his papa had to pay before he could get out and the tears which they shed coming up Kinsley street showed they loved their father in spite of his cruelty.

      Humane Society Takes Action in Two Families

      The Humane Society, through Secretary Miller, brought complaints yesterday to the probate court for the commitment of seven children to the temporary home?
      The other petition was for the commitment of the five Sullivan children of No. 50 Russell Street to the temporary home. The mother of the children died about six years ago and their father, James Sullivan, is not a proper person to take care of them. He is a hod-carrier and the Humane Society claims that he is intemperate and that he misuses hid children. The children are Mary, aged 14 years, Daniel and James, twins, aged 12 years, Michael, aged 10 years, and Bridget, aged 8 years. Mary has been keeping house for the family.

      Guardian for Sullivan Childrenn ? McAuliffe Children go to temporary home

      The five Sullivan children of No 50 Russell street and the two McAuliffe children of No 2 Ellery street were before Judge Freeman in the probate court yesterday afternoon, on complaint of the Humane Society. The first case disposed was that of the Sullivan children. The five children sat around crying and said that they did not want to be taken from their father. They presented a good appearance and were rather neatly dressed. Secretary Miller of the Society stated that the father abuse the children and was improper person to take care of them. Their mother has been dead about six years. With consent of father Loftus, Judge Freeman placed him as guardian over the children. Mrs Thomas Kennedy of 64 Ward street, an aunt of the children, asked for the custody of the oldest child Mary, and Mrs Michael Lehy of Springfield, another aunt, wanted the youngest girl Bridget age 8. Their requests were granted. The Reverend father Loftus took charge of the three boys.
