the Beer Act.
William Graves, of “the
Cricketers” beer shop, Snatchup’s Alley,
appeared from the evidence adduced, that Inspector Pike,
accompanied by Sergeant North,
went to the house in question on the Sunday morning named, which they
passed through into another cottage, occupied by a man called Bacon, the two communicating by an internal door; where they found
four men and two boys with two empty pint pots, and one quart pot, the
latter three parts full of beer. One of the men was named Harcourt,
whom he had a warrant against for ill-treating his wife, and whom he
took into custody.
Graves, who appeared for her husband, said she had not drawn any beer
since Saturday night. She then called Mrs. Bacon, who swore her
husband bought a gallon of beer of Mr Graves on the Saturday night,
and the persons the police found in her house were her husband’s
friends, to whom he gave some of the beer.
BENCH said the cottage Bacon inhabited was added to and was part and
parcel of the beer-shop, a licence for which could not be obtained
without it, and what transpired there he (Graves) was liable for.
