Maidstone Journal and Kentish Advertiser 28 February 1895.

DARTFORD. POLICE COURT - SATURDAY.

Eliza Ann Horton of the "King's Head Inn," Dartford, was summoned for selling to P.C. Dengate, on 29th January, a quantity of whiskey and brandy not of the quality demanded, the former, according to the analyst's certificate, being 28.2 under proof and the latter 28.61. The legal limit is 25 under proof.

Mr. Ridley, for Mrs. Horton, urged that proof spirit, according to an act of George 3rd., was, roughly speaking, 50 degrees of pure alcohol and 50 degrees of water. Thus water could not be a foreign ingredient for adulteration, and the analyst had gone outside his function to prejudice what it was the duty of the magistrates to decide.

Defendant was fined 1 and costs on each summons.
