Gravesend Reporter, North Kent and South Essex Advertiser, Saturday 6 April 1901.

John Dale (34), seaman, staying at the Sailors' Home, Gravesend, was charged with being drunk and disorderly in Princes Street, also with wilfully damaging a plate-glass window at the rear of the "Jubilee" public house premises.

Mr. I. Tolhurst prosecuted for the local Licensed Victuallers' Association.

P.C. Leonard Martin depose that at 12:15 on Saturday night he was on duty in Princes Street and noticed prisoner drunk and shouting. Witnessed advised him to go away but they replied that he wanted to be locked up. He again told him to go away, and he then deliberately broke the pane of glass with his fist, remarking "I mean to be locked up."

William John May, manager of the "Jubilee" for Burney's Brewery Company Limited gave evidence, stating that it will cost 2 to replace the window.

Prisoner said he thought he fell against the window and broke it with his elbow. He was too drunk to remember much about it.

The Chief Constable said prisoner was practically a stranger to the town, he was fined at the court in February last for drunkenness and 10s. 6d, or 14 days for the drunkenness and was ordered to pay the amount of the damage, or 28 days', the sentences to run consecutively.
