CARD PLAYING ON SUNDAY – Edwin Walker, Leonard Wagstaffe and Alfred Game pleaded not guilty to card-playing on Riverside on Sunday, November 18th. P.C. Dean stated that on the Sunday evening in question he and P.C. Pusey caught the defendants playing cards under a gas lamp in the Folly at the bottom of Thornton Street along with other youths. He did not see the money, but heard it rattle as it passed from hand to hand. P.C. Pusey gave corroborative evidence. In answer to a question he said there were eight boys altogether. The defendants said there were some lads playing cards, but they were only looking on.  P.C. Pusey, recalled, said that Walker had money in all his pockets. The defendants were convicted and fined 6s.6d. each.
