A Denaby Argument

A charge of inflicting grievous bodily harm upon Edmund Power, checkweighman, Wheatley Street, Denaby, was preferred against Michael Cairns, miner, New Conisborough, at the Doncaster West Riding Court to-day.

Superintendent Hickcs stated that the men met in the street on Saturday night about half-past ten, and had some words. It was alleged that the prisoner struck Power a violent blow on the head, which felled him and rendered him unconscious.

He was taken home and attended by a doctor, who said that he was seriously injured on the head and would not fit to attend court this week. The doctor was afraid of complications.

After formal evidence of arrest and the charge, which the officer said prisoner practically admitted, prisoner was remanded for a week.
