The Flogging Parson
(Taken from Geoffrey H Manning's A Colonial Experience)
In November 1890 the Reverend S.S. Moncrieff, the head teacher of All Saint's Grammar School, Moonta, was charged with unlawfully assaulting and beating Horatio Abrahams, aged 11 years. In giving his version of events he said that, while examining the work of teachers and classes, he noticed the writing of young Abrahams in an exercise book to be 'bad and blotted' an so applied his cane to the hands of the offender.
The reverend gentleman continued:
I told the boy to begin his work again, but he refused by leaning his head on his arm over the copy book and crumpled it. I told him several times to begin work again and he did not do so. The boy is habitually stubborn, most careless an adept at idling time. He disobeyed repeated orders to come out of the desk and I then brought the cane down to his shoulders several times.
Again called him out. He did not obey, but scrambled under the desk and kicked violently against the desk. I caught him around the shoulders, lifted him up and set him on his feet without any unnecessary violence. He would not stand, but struggled to kneel down... Gave him another caning on the legs and sent him to his place. He received altogether about 20 strokes of the cane... I deny having committed an assault on the boy within the meaning of the law and it was my duty to punish him.
The matter proceeded to the local court where Rev Moncrieff was fined two pounds, plus costs, for the magistrate was of the opinion that 'the punishment inflicted was unreasonable.' The defendant was not enamoured with the verdict and told the court that he would rather go to gaol than pay the fine and, if necessary, would go to the Supreme Court with the case 'as he had not got justice.'
A few days later Rev Moncrieff telegraphed the Adelaide press to the effect that 'the following gentlemen have represented to me that the public are shocked at the verdict and they have subscribed the fine... [several names were appended].' A little later the attention of Bishop Kennion of Adelaide was drawn to the case and so the Venerable Archdeacon Farr proceeded to Moonta to enquire into the whole circumstances of the matter.
He heard depositions from wardens of the church, while Mrs Abrahams declined to be present. The finding was that 'it did not appear that Mr Moncrieff had been to blame in the matter. The punishment inflicted on the boy was severe, but the boy's stubborn resistance was the cause of the severity. Mr Moncrieff was indiscreet... [but] the punishment was not excessive. I am happy to say that wherever I heard the matter mentioned sympathy was with Mr Moncrieff.'
This partisan assembly, lacking in Christian benevolence, said nothing of the injuries inflicted on the boy and declined to comment on the court's decision and it is interesting to read two opinions emanating from the public:
I think most people who have read the evidence... are astonished at the verdict and regret that the defendant, instead of accepting the sympathy of those who subscribed the fine, did not appeal to the Supreme Court. Surely, no sane man who understands much about the management of refractory lads would uphold the decision of the bench. Corporal punishment should not be common in schools... but in extreme cases... it is absolutely necessary to keep on thrashing the boys at intervals until he comes to his senses...
In my own experience I know of at least half a dozen lads, very bad indeed, upon whom kindness had been exercised by many teachers in vain until eventually a sound good thrashing was administered and resulted in the making of them.
I am quite at a loss to understand what other course Mr Moncrieff could have adopted. No amount of kindness or talking would have cured this lad... What will be the effect of this verdict upon the other boys at All Saints and with boys generally throughout the various schools in the colony? They will simply laugh and defy their teachers...
Certainly the boy may be a thoroughly bad one and yet who is to say if he was a bad and unruly lad or whether it was one of those sound good thrashings that [the above correspondent] speaks of that made him bad. I have known of more than one boy who has got four or five cuts across the hand with a cane for such offences as talking or looking about the room, but instead of 'being the making of them' it had a tendency to make them stubborn.
Most masters have their favourites in school and their 'black sheep'. They take every opportunity of caning for the least breach of the regulations. I have seen a boy caned so severely as to bring blood from his hand for merely talking in school... Is that what [your correspondent] means by a sound thrashing? Perhaps he was one of the favourites when he went to school and never was subjected to a thrashing, hence his letter. I sincerely hope that Mr Moncrieff's case will be a lesson to schoolmasters in general and I would ask them to bear in mind that schoolboys have feelings as well as their masters.
