THE POLICE AND THE PUBLICAN. A LANDLORD FINED m0 AT SWAN. SEA. At the police-court, Swansea, on Thursday, before Mr Fowler, stipendiary, and Mr Par- minter, John Hosgood, of the Old Compass Inn, Pentre, was summoned for allowing beer to be consumed on his promises at illegal hours on the 12th of January. â Police con- stables Nicholas Lloyd and Johns visited the defendant's premises at a quarter to two in the morning, after hearing persons talking within. They found in the house two men, one of whom, as well as the landlord, was drunk. In the cellar there were two glasses half filled with beer. One of the constables told the landlord that he should report him, whereupon the latter said, "All right, I have a cousin on the bench, and if you report m;, I'll have your coat off, if it costs me £ 40."âMr Fowler here asked the officer giving evidence whether defendant mentioned the name of his cousin, to which a reply in the negative was given. The constables went outside of the house, and put their ears near the keyhole, when they heard the defendant say to the two men, Mind and swear you had nothing to drink here to-night. You can say that my wife and I were quarrelling, and that you were called in to pacify us. One of the men (whose name was Grey-) replied, "All right; I'll swear that. I am the man who can do it." (Laughter.) The police then went away, and reported the case. In de- fence evidence was produced to show that the two men remained behind after closing time, in order to help the landlord in the cellar, and, it was said that they had nothing at all to drink. âMr Fowler told the defendant plainly that he did not believe the witnesses for the defence. The learned magistrate also remarked that the defendant had insulted the bench by an allusion ti some influence which he thought he might exercise through a relative, though, he said, that insult would not be taken into consideration in the penalty. He then fined defendant £10, and ordered the licence to be endorsed.
