Before the Magistrates on Monday 27th January 1859, David Bowen and eight other licensees, were charged with having their houses open and permitting persons to drink therein, on Christmas Day and Sunday 26th December.
Mr. Bowen asserted that he had been advised by a newly enlisted policeman that the authorities would be lenient over the holiday period. Although at first denying the claim, the un-named constable later admitted that his words could have been interpreted that way.
The police constable was ordered to pay the 5s fine and the Mayor gave notice that he would convict all publicans who were charged with a second offence of this kind.

Referred to Compensation 04.03.1913.

Licence expired 23.12.1913
