"A respectably-dressed young man named Walter Ryland [21], clerk, was charged with being drunk and disorderly, and wilfully damaging the name plate on the door of the United Kingdom Alliance Society's office in New Street. The prisoner was acting up to the improper injunction "be merry and mischievous when you can," being actively engaged in the exciting amusement of pulling bell handles and doing his best to deface door knockers. "Night with him was the time for a spree," but unfortunately he fell into the hands of a policeman who took him to the cells of Moor Street. Fined 5s. and costs, in addition to which he was ordered to pay the damage."

"Ernest Charles Kay, an iron-founder of Great Barr, was summoned, at the instance of the London and North-Western Railway Company, for alighting from a train whilst in motion, at New Street Station. Mr. Soars appeared for the complainants and Mr. Rowlands for the defendant. A collector named Edwin Wicks proved that the defendant jumped out of a compartment before the train came to a standstill, and that the jumper had some difficulty in maintaining his equilibrium when he alighted on the platform. A cross-summons was preferred against this collector by Mr. Key for assaulting him. Several witnesses were called to show that he was roughly handled by Wicks. The charge against the collector was dismissed, and Mr. Key was fined 5s. and costs."
