Unruly Customers at Conisborough.
On Saturday, at the Doncaster West Riding Police Court, Michael Quinn, James McNicholas, and John Gallagher, miners, of Conisborough, were summoned at the instance of Inspector Whitworth, for being drunk on the Great Central Railway Station Conisborough, on the 5th of August.
Herbert John Richards, the stationmaster, said he was on duty the arrival of the 11.15 p.m. train from Doncaster. The defendants alighted and commenced to make a “row “’ Witness spoke them, and Quinn struck him a blow the jaw. His watch chain was also smashed, and had it not been for the assistance of Police-constable Jarvis he believed he would have been severely handled.
McNicholas, who did not appear, was fined 40s, including costs, and the other defendants 20s and 11s. 10d. costs each.
