A Trip To The “Pub.”

The Great Central Railway Company brought another prosecution for trespass, which followed on the heels of similar prosecutions.

The defendant was a pony driver named W. Richards, of New Conisborough, and according to the evidence of PC Wailes he was, on Wednesday, the eighth, seen coming across two great Central Railway at new Conisborough, climbing over the fence adjoining, and subsequently over another fence, into Doncaster Road.

He was then spoken to by PC Wailes and P. S. Horton. He had in his pocket a large bottle, and he was going to the Denaby Main Hotel for beer, having come from Kilner bros. Glassworks.
Defendant appeared and pleaded guilty.

The chairman: Shortcuts to public houses across the railway or anywhere else must be stopped – you will have to pay 5/– and costs.
