Half and Half Revisited


      This is a second newspaper article, found in the Northern Daily Mail, West Hartlepool, Monday, September 16, 1895.  It regards my paternal great grandfather's court appearance to testify as to an incident involving Adam Guthrie and a Hartlepool police officer, P.P. George Edward  Lawless.  It is the second West Hartlepool police court date. The outcome of the hearing was to send it to the Durham court.

     According to the testimony of John George Hughes, he corroborated the testimony of the police officer.  John must have also been on Lynn Street during the night of the altercation as P.C. Lawless asked for his help with Guthrie.
