Fighting at Denaby
Samuel Elkin and William Brown, miners, Denaby Main, was summoned for having committed a breach of the peace by fighting on the high road at Conisborough on July 10.
The defendants pleaded guilty, but Elkin said he had great provocation, as he was struck by another man and had to strike back.
The defendants were each ordered to pay the costs.
