I don't know if George Morris was on duty at Kearley and Tonge on the 29th November 1894, but if so he was on his usual top form, the entire place burned down.

I'm assuming it was him who prosecuted a shoemaker named Alexander Birke (A Petty Prosecution South Wales Echo 12/9/1888) for the theft of an empty champagne case.
Alderman Sir Andrew Lusk dismissed the case and released the prisoner.
Despite the protestations of Morris that he had known people prosecuted for the theft of a turnip, Sir Andrew stated the man was not known, there was no evidence he had stolen the packing case and anyway it was worth nothing!

I don't know if Mr Birke was Jewish.
