1877 - Illegal Turnips

News
On Saturday last a young farmer from Quebec, named Robert Wright, arrived in town with several friends, bringing with him a large quantity of turnips for sale in the city. Totally ignorant of the bylaws, he sold two barrels of turnips on the street this morning without having a license to do so. One of his supposed friends named Cauldwell immediately informed a policeman of the occurrence and pointed Wright out to him at a distance.
