Fighting At Conisbro’.

At Doncaster, on Saturday, William Barton and John Casey, miners, New Conisbro’, were ordered to pay the costs for causing an affray at Conisbro’, by fighting, the police stating that the two were “stripped to the skin,” and watched by a large crowd.

Joseph Regan and Michael Dalton, miners, New Conisbro’, were summoned for a similar offence.

The former had to pay the costs, and Dalton, who had previously been before the court, was bound over, in the sum of £5, to keep the peace for six months and to pay the costs.
