The Lynn Advertiser of 5th January 1912 reported that Arthur Hallum had pleaded guilty to the charge of suffering gaming.
Police sergeant Earle had discovered gaming taking place at about 8:30pm on 22nd December 1911. A number of men had gathered around a French Bagatelle board and a man named Hearne was at the head of the board with a pencil and note book. On the bar was a joint of beef on a plate. The note book revealed that each man had paid 6d to enter the competition to win the beef. Mr Hallum said at the time that although he knew he should not allow it, as it was Christmas time, he thought it would do no harm.
Pleased that the defendant had pleaded guilty, that he was a respectable man and that other licensees had been duly warned, the Chairman of the magistrates said that there would be no conviction and the case would be dismissed upon the condition that no further gaming was allowed on the premises.
