Street brawl
"High life at midnight ..."; street scene, possibly Covent Garden; a fight in progress between two well-dressed men and four watchmen; one of the latter falls, stabbed to the heart; a ragged boy picks the pocket of his assailant and a woman belabours a prostrate man; in rear, a man with horns empties filth over his wife as she elopes.
