Transfer of licenses and summons 1891, publicans and beersellers

Liverpool Mercury, August 14th 1891

Liverpool licenses transfer sessions

A special session was held yesterday in the 2nd Police Court, Dale St, for the purpose of hearing the applications for transfers or removals of victuallers and beer sellers licenses and for public music, dancing licenses etc. Alderman Thomas HUGHES presided there was also on the bench Alderman LIVINGSTON, John HUGHES and OAKSHOTT and Messers T. MATHESON, A. BILLSON, R. W. LEYLAND, J. HENDERSON and L. MORRIS.

Mr HORRIDGE on behalf of George Gordon HOUGHTON, applied for the transfer to him on the license, 25 Harrington St. The licenses until recently was in the hands of Elizabeth SPENCER, and the present applicant was the chairman of the United Brewing Company, Lid. Mr HORRIDGE said that an application in respect of this house was before the bench in July last, but it was refused on what seemed to be good grounds. The improper conduct referred to on that occasion occurred without the knowledge of Mr Sutherland BANNER, the owner of the property. The present applicant would carry on the house in a proper manner. Mrs SPENCER had now given up possession of the place and had only received £175 for her fixtures, and had practically lost the difference between £175 and £400 the value of her goodwill. The house had been closed until this present time. On the applicant being put into the box he said he had taken a lease from Mr BANNER for 14yrs at £155 per annum. He intended to look after the place himself, and have only male assistants - Cross examined by Mr MOSS [who opposed on behalf of the Head Constable], Witness said he intended to manage the place himself - Mr HARDY [who appeared on behalf of Mr BANNER] said the court had no objection to the premises, and the person who was objected to has now gone out. There was no objection to the present applicant. He thought that when a person had not been conducting a place properly, the police should at once inform the owner of the property and take proceedings against the offenders. - Mr MOSS said in objecting he did not appear in any hostile spirit, he simply wished to remind the bench that the police had been informed of certain grossly indecent and immoral conduct which took place there in January last. If this licenses was transferred the result would be, no matter how badly the house was conducted in the future, there would be no chance of successfully opposing the renewal of the license, because the person who had conducted the place in an objectionable manner would, on receiving notice of objection, only have to apply for a transfer, securing as an applicant a person against whom the police could say nothing. Mr QUILLIAM watched the case on behalf of the vigilance committee. - The magistrates retired to consider their decision, and on returning into court the chairman said, that the bench had well considered this application, and had by a majority refused it.
