A Case Dismissed

Wilfred Woolhouse, wheelwright, Conisborough, was charged with having been drunk and disorderly.

The police constable said he saw the defendant come out of a public-house, and seize a young man by the coat collar and ask for a match. He was both drunk and disorderly.

The defendant for whom Mr. Pawson, solicitor, appeared, denied the charge. He said he had only had a pint of beer, and that when he went up to the man, who was a friend of his, it was in a playful way. He used no bad language.

His friend was Kelley.

Mr. Yarborough said though the defendant was a little the worse for drink, it was not thought he was disorderly.

The case was dismissed.
