Before the Recorder

Camden Daily Courier – January 31, 1899

Disposition of the ‘Slate’ — Not a Come in Banc, to be Sure.

James Hanley, a sexuageneric found stiff on a step, sentence suspended; Henry Myers, a Trenton corsalve fakir with his nose in court plaster chancery, twenty days for insulting a woman, and James Sharp, a young man fired out of the Sixth ward ball and who then tried to lick Policeman George Anderson, fined $3.75. The court was out of change and there was a long wait while Hughey Boyle broke the prisoner’s five dollar bill.

“You must excuse us” remarked Recorder Nowrey, “but this is not a court in banc.”
