TAMWORTH, Monday.

At the Police Court this morning, W. G. Walker, district surveyor, was fined £2 with costs for impeding a gatekeeper named Catherine Carroll in the execution of her duty. A water train was slowly coming into Tamworth station, and when nearing a crossing the defendant drove down the street, and resisting the gatekeeper let himself through the gates in face of the approaching tram, which had to pull up.
