Travelling Without Tickets.

At Doncaster West Riding Police Court, on Saturday, Harry Boyd, pony driver, of Doncaster, was summoned by Mr. Arthur Hall, representing the Great Central Railway Company, for travelling without ticket Conisborough on January 8th.

John Martin, labourer, of Doncaster, was summoned for aiding and abetting.

The former pleaded “guilty,” and the latter “not guilty.”

When tickets were collected Conisborough Station Boyd gave up the first half of a workman’s out-of-date ticket. In another part of the train Martin was found with the other half.

Boyd now said that he was persuaded to buy his half of the ticket from Martin.

Boyd was ordered pay 6s. 6d. costs, and Martin was fined 30s., including costs.
