Migrates From Whitehaven to Workington


At an occasional court at Workington on Monday morning William McCARTEN (70), Weaver's Lodging House, Derwent Street, Workington, was fined 8s for begging in Oxford Street at 8 p.m. on November 10th, and warned by the chairman (Mr. F. W. IREDALE) that if he appeared before them again he would be treated as a rogue and a vagabond and sent to prison.  He was warned to leave the town.

Detective-Constable BAUM stated that he saw defendant approach two men and three women and heard him ask one man for a copper.  When arrested he had 7s 6d in silver and 1s 5½d in copper in his possession.

Supt. RITCHIE said that two days previously he had seen defendant going from door to door in Corporation Road and warned him.  Defendant, he added, was a nuisance.  He belonged to Whitehaven where he had been so many times before the magistrates that he had migrated to Workington.  He had nine convictions against him.
