A BIT Of A ROW AT

GRIMSBY BEACH

... .

The usual quiet of Sunday evening

was disturbed at GRIMSBY Beach on

Sunday, July 8, when the Beach con-

stable and several of the dock hands

from the steamer Macassa got into a

squabble. That was the first stage of

the trouble. The second stage of the

trouble was when the deck hands

were up before Magistrate Anderson

and Allan in GRIMSBY on Monday

and the third stage will be when the

accused men appear before Judge

Campbell in St. Catherines, at an

early date.

It appears that three or four of the

deck hands were in the swings on

Sunday evening and the constable or-

dered them to leave. This they refused

to do. One word led to another and

finally the constable endeavored to

place one of the boys under arrest.

The others interfered and a squabble

was the result.

Constable Robertson laid informa-

tion against two of the men, Alfred

Poole, who hails from Brantford, and

Belwood Berry, whose home is in Tor-

onto. They are quite young men and

they came up for trial before the two

GRIMSBY magistrates on Monday

and were committed for trial before

His Honor Judge Campbell. Constable

J. Konkle took the lads to St. Cath-

arines on Monday evening and they

are now in jail awaiting their trial,

charged with resisting a constable

when performing his duty.
