A Woman’s Conduct

“If you can afford to get drunk you can afford to pay for it,” said the Chairman to a woman named Mary Williams, who was charged with having been drunk and disorderly at New Conisborough the previous evening.

She was seen by PC Richard and Rutter, in Doncaster Road, Denaby, at 7:45 pm, very drunk and making use of obscene language to group of children, who were following her. She refused to give her name and address.

Prisoner denied the offence, but she was ordered to pay 2/6 and 4/– and costs.
