Careless Miners

At Doncaster, on Saturday, Roland Edwards, pony driver. Denaby, was summoned for committing a breach of colliery rules whilst working in the Cadeby Mine by striking a man named Toni Wood on the head with lamp and breaking it.

Mr. F. Allen, for the company, said it was a most dangerous thing to do, and might have caused an explosion.

Defendant said the man kicked the lamp and broke the glass.

A fine of 20s. was imposed.

George H. Brinkley, pony driver, and Tom Walker, lamp boy, Denaby, for riding on tubs in the same pit contrary to rule, were fined 11s., including costs.
