FATAL HOTEL AFFRAY
A fatal quarrel took place at the Sir John Young Hotel, George-street, tonight. A man named Thomas Jones, aged 48, a wharf laborer, and another man, both being under the influence of liquor, quarrelled and fought. They fell to the floor, with Jones underneath, and, on the other
man rising, Jones was found to be dead, his skull being fractured.
