SINGERS, Daniel NUGENT, Samuel KANE and Robert O’HARE, five boys, were charged
with having committed willful damage to 43 iron railings - by breaking them
on Sunday last - the property of Mr. H. F. CURWEN, of Workington Hall.
All of the defendants with the exception of SINGERS pleaded guilty.
George MORTON and Police-constable HETHERINGTON proved that the defendants
had broken 43 railings in Bury-street, on the Marsh, on Sunday night last.
The estimated cost of replacing the broken railings was £3, but the damage
was only laid at £2.
The magistrates ordered each of the boys to pay 15s., the costs and the
damage in each case.
