DRUNKENNESS AT WESTGATE-ON-SEA.

John Hooper Davies, of the "Nottingham Castle Hotel," Westgate-on-Sea, was summoned for having been drunk on his licensed premises on the 28th ult.

P.C. Fowle said he was called to a disturbance at the "Nottingham Castle," and there found the defendant in his bar, rolling about in a "beastly state of drunkenness." The defendant ordered him out of the house, and said he did not care, as he could not injure him. Dennis O'Brien, a boatman, was present, and said the defendant had been drunk three days, and he did not deny it. He had had complaints of the management of the house. The defendant was so drunk that he could hardly speak.

In cross examination, he said the disturbance was between defendant and his barmaid, who had been ordered by him to leave the house at a minute's notice.

P.C. Bateman and Dennis O'Brien corroborated.

Mr. Shea said an undesirable customer was in the house and the defendant was excited in consequence of a dispute with him and also with his barmaid. What the defendant was suffering from was not drink but excitement.

The defendant, who it was stated by Sergt. Hoare, was fined in January, was now fine 20s. and 17s. costs.

The defendant said there had been a great deal of spite against him.

An application was made, prior to the hearing of the case, for the transfer of the licence; but the magistrates referred the applicant to the Dover justices.
