The man from the niche.

Samuel Joseph Peter, bookbinder of Bristol, was summoned before the magistrates 5th February 1912 on a charge of malicious damage to a window of the Woolpack and for refusing to leave.
Peter claimed self defence, but admitted breaking the window. Licensee Gowler had served the defendant one pint of beer but refused him any more. Peter had been asked to leave and he had done so, but soon returned. At that point he was asked if he was an Englishman, the defendant said he was. Gowler replied that if he was indeed an Englishman he would not return to the house. He left but again returned, to be put out yet again by Gowler. The door was shut and shortly afterwards a stone came through the window. The defendant was seen running away.
Peter claimed that he had suffered a punch in the mouth and a damaged hat.
Fining Peter 20s with costs or one month in prison for refusing to quit licensed premises, plus £1 3s 6d for the damage, plus costs or one month in prison, to run concurrently with the other charge, the Chairman remarked that the Bench wished him to say that licence holders must be protected.
