Before and After

Two new Conisbrough minors name William Davies and Michael Garrity were summoned for having committed a breach of the peace by fighting at Conisborough on May 3.

PC Cousens stated that at 2:40 PM on the date in question, he was on duty in plain clothes in Doncaster Road, New Conisborough, near the Market Hall, when he saw the two defendants in front of the Denaby Main Hotel “fighting in a desperate manner.”

A large crowd quickly gathered together. He separated the defendants.

Davies said it was all over a bit of an “argiment,” “we have always been the best of friends,” he added, “both before and after.”

Each were ordered to pay the costs 9/-.
