BROSELEY - Tuesday


A Warning.- Cecil Brown, engine-driver, The Lloyds was charged with stealing 7lb weight of coal, value 1d., the property of the Madeley Wood Co.- Police constable Wakeley proved the case.- Mr. Oakes cashier for the company, said they did not wish to press the case, as Brown, who had worked for the company nearly all his life, had always been a good character.- The Mayor said the case would be dismissed on payment of costs, and Bench hoped this would be a warning to other people.
