1877 Evening Post,QUARTERLY LICENSING BENCH. This Day. (Before H. S. Wardell, Esq., R.M., Major Paul, J. Moore, and T. Kebbell, Esq., Licensing Commissioners.) NEW LICENSES. William Prosser applied for a publican's license for a new house, erected by him at Pahautanui. Mr. Gordon Allan appeared in support of the application, and submitted plans of the house which had just been finished. He further laid before the Bench a petition in support of the granting of the license. Mr. Ollivier appeared on the other side to object, and submitted a memorial, setting forth that the present Pahautanui hotel was sufficient for all the requirements of the place. The applicant deposed that the present licensed house was totally inadequate to supply all the accommodation required. His house was completed, and the stables would be finished in a week. Cross-examined. — The house stood upon two acres of land, a portion of which would be fenced off as a paddock. The land was securely fenced and had cost about £400. The house was situated about 100 yards from the other hotel, the other nearest hotel being about three miles distant. Witness — Building had cost over £700, and when the stables were completed the total outlay would be about £1300. Evidence was taken in regard to the application, after which the new license as applied for was refused.
A proper building had been erected by Mr. Prosser, and the only opposition came from the owner of a licensed house in the neighborhood, which was not satisfactorily conducted. Mr. Olivier objected to such ground being taken. The applicant had no right to blacken the character of the existing house, as no notice had been given so that rebutting evidence might have been brought. Mr. Allan contended he had a right to do so. because the only ground of objection raised was that there was a licensed house there already, therefore he was entitled to show that the existing house was not a suitable one. When there was only one house there was necessarily a monopoly, and the landlord, provided he kept within the letter of the law, could supply inferior liquor, or could do just what he chose. He strongly urged on the Beuch the justice of granting this application. The applicant then being sworn, described his new building and its appliances. Edward Bollou corroborated the evidence of the applicant. He considered the new hotel was much needed, as there were ten or twenty travellers passing now for every one that passed a few years ago, when there were two inns, instead of only one as now. Francis Brady, J. Blachie, Roderick Mulheu, and others gave similar evidence. Constable Ryan stated that the house was in every way fit to be licensed. Mr. Ollivier held that there was no reason to alter the previous decision of the Bench, and that the house was not really required. The Bench refused the application.

1878 Evening Post, 22 July 1878, Page 2
THE CHARGE AGAINST A PUBLICAN. William Prosser, formerly landlord of Taita Hotel, surrendered to his bail on a charge of obtaining £250 by false pretences. Mr. Buckley appeared for the defendant, and stated that he understood the prosecution made a mistake in taking out the warrant, and did not intend to proceed with the case. He therefore asked that the defendant might be discharged. His Worship said that he would allow the case to be withdrawn, but he did not approve what had been done — first of all preferring a very serious charge against a man, and then compromising outside the court. Mr. Buckley said that it was scarcely a compromise, as the warrant was issued in error. It appeared that the letter by which the matter was settled was written before the warrant was issued. His Worship then ordered the defendant to be discharged.

1881 HAWERA RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COUBT.Hawera & Normanby Star, 25 June 1881; W. Prosser v. F. Bailey.— Claim, £30. This was a suit for the return of a horse sold by W. Stannard to W. Prosser, and afterwards re-sold by Stannard to Frank Bailey. His Worship gave judgment to the following effect : — It appeared to him that the main question at issue was whether there had been evidence of a complete contract of sale or not. Taking into consideration the fact that it had been shown that the horse passed immediately into the possesion of Prosser after its sale by Stannard, and that the latter had accepted payment and given a receipt in full, he considered that the sale was undoubted. It had only been shown on the other side, that under certain circumstances which never happened, the horse might have been given back by Prosser to the vendor. It was again contended that possession was again given to Stannard by Prosser when the former obtained permission to lead the horse off to grass. But it appeared that at this time Stannard was simply acting as the servant or agent for W. Prosser. The Magistrate quoted authorities showing that where a livery-stable-keeper had sold a horse, and the purchaser had stipulated at the time of the sale that the horse was to be kept at livery by the vendor for the buyer, it had been held that the mere transfer of the horse from the livery to the sale stables of the seller was sufficient to complete the contract for sale. That the owner had thereby given delivery and relinquished possession, and only held the animal in custody for its new owner. He was of opinion that no right of re-sale had been given to Stannard, when he took the horse with the avowed intention of leading it away for W. Prosser to a paddock of Messrs. Wilson's. Judgment would be for a return of the horse or its value, £18 10s., and costs. The claim for damages would not be allowed.

The orderly meets Mr. Prosser's coach at Opunake, and takes the mails on. The concession is much appreciated, as quite recently it took about a week for a letter or newspaper to go from Hawera to the Cape or Pungarehu. We now learn that Mr. Prosser intends running his coach through to New Plymouth three times a week, returning on
alternate days.

1882 Hawera & Normanby Star,8 April 1882: THE IMPOUNDING CASE. This case (Quin v. Prosser), raised the issue as to whether Mr. William R. Prosser, who was appointed poundkeeper at Hawera by the Patea County Council had power to act in that capacity when the Hawera County had been proclaimed until re-appointed by the latter County Council. The evidence was brought out at the hearing a fortnight since, and the Bench (Messrs. Wilson, McGuire, and Caverhill) on Thursday delivered the following written judgment :"After carefully considering the impounding case before the Court, and looking up authority, we find nothing to compel or imply that any poundkeeper is required to close his pound during those periods when changes are taking place by one local body taking over the management of affairs from another. By the Acts bearing on this question — Municipal Corporations Act, clause 16, and Counties Act, clauses 29, 32, 39, and 201— it would appear that officers appointed by one local body continue in office, notwithstanding any changes that take place, until confirmed in their appointments or dismissed by the new local body coming into power. By clauses 21 and 22, Counties Act, it appears that some time is allowed a new county in taking over charge of affairs from the county from which seceded. It is therefore obvious that the closing of public pounds, hospitals, and slaughterhouses, if enforced or permitted during periods of local government changes, would cause serious inconvenience. It seems clear that no clause in either of these Acts sanctions or consents to any action that would so seriously inconvenience the general public. In this case we are of opiuion that the defendant was poundkeeper, with power to act as such on the date the cattle were impounded, that gave rise to the action." Judgment for defendant, with costs. Defendant was ordered to pay the costs of an adjournment obtained at his instance. Mr. Matthews appeared for plaintiff; Mr. Parrington for defendant.
1882 Hawera & Normanby Star, 21 April 1882: HAWERA RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Thursday, April 20. (Before Captain Wilson, and J. S. Caverhill, Esq., J.P.'s.) IMPOUNDING. William R. Prosser was charged, on the information of Charles Quin, with having, on the 28th February, committed a breach of the Impounding Act, by having failed, Ist, to keep in his possession a copy of the Impounding Ordinance, and (2), that he had neglected to enter in the pound book " every particular required to be entered " at the time certain animals belonging to defendant were impounded. "Mr. Matthews appeared for complainant, and Mr. Barton for defendant. Mr. Barton raised the objection that the information was bad, because it charged two distinct offences, whereas the 7th section Justices of the Peace Act provided that no information should charge more than one offence. Mr. Matthews applied to have the information amended by striking out the first part. ' The Bench concurred, and struck out the first part. Mr. Barton then objected that the charge of omitting to enter particulars was not specific enough. The information should show what particulars it was alleged had been omitted. Mr. Matthews said he would prove that the particulars were not properly entered; if they had been entered his case would fail. Mr. Barton rejoined that defendant was entitled to know what he was charged with. Mr. Matthews said the charge was that defendant had omitted to enter " every " particular. The evidence would show what particulars were not entered. The Bench decided to give leave to amend the information by specifying the omitted particulars. The case then proceeded. Charles Quin stated that on the 28th February last he missed some cows and a calf; he searched for them, and next day about noon he found them in Hawera pound ; asked what was to pay, and was informed by Mrs. Prosser that it was 205.; on request was shown the pound book ; there was no statement as to the brands, the cause of impounding, or by whom they were impounded; he was informed that the cattle were impounded from Kitouetea; was satisfied the cattle had never been there, and he paid the money under protest ; Mr. Prosser afterwards said Keteonetea was a mistake; he admitted having neglected to make the proper entries. To Mr. Barton — I laid this information because defendant broke the statute law which we should all keep; I may be a benefactor, to the human race; I leave that to you to judge. You did not come here because of your biliousness P — No; because a breach of the law was committed. You are aware that his wife was there in his place P — Yes. Do you not think it mean and spiteful to proceed against a man because of the omissions of his wife P — No ; if a man could bring his wife into the question whenever he committed a breach of the law, there would be plenty of breaches. You do not feel sore because you lost your previous case P — No. You do not think your conduct mean and spiteful P — No. Mr. Barton hoped the Bench, would not convict. In the first place, the poundkeeper was not present when the omission occurred — it was the act of the wife. The prosecution was vindictive, because plaintiff lost his previous case. The Bench said the Act applied to paid pound keepers, and scarcely could be held to apply to pounds in these small places. No unpaid man could be expected to be at the pound all day. Mr. Matthews said the law was plain,
Sir,— l am glad that you thought proper to print, in Saturday's issue, the verdict in the impounding case. It will show the public the amount of labor the Bench took to sugar-coat their verdict over, so that their bitter "pill" would go down as agreeably as possible. The most extraordinary thing in this decision is the amount of extraneous matter mixed op with it. There was not one word of evidence before the Court in this case about either slaughter-houses or hospitals, or about the Municipal Corporations Act, as Mr. Prosser admitted he was not appointed poundkeeper under that Act at the time. Why the Bench mixed up these things in their verdict no "fellah" seemed able to understand. I always thought until now that a bench administered Statute law as they found it, and not as they wished it to be : but we live and learn. In the first place, there was an action about to be brought against Mr. Prosser, by me, for a breach of the Impounding Act; and when questioned about his appointment as poundkeeper, he admitted that he was neither appointed by the Hawera County nor Borough Council, but was acting as poundkeeper on his own responsibility. It then became necessary to test the validity of his appointment. This action was then brought under section 200 of the Counties Act, which reads thus: "The council may establish and maintain public pounds within the county, and' may appoint, remove, and re-appoint poundkeepers." The case hinged altogether on Mr. Prossor's appointment by the Council. It is admitted that he was appointed by that body; but as the Act distinctly states that the pound must be within the county, as soon as separation took place Hawera was outside the Patea County, and the council that appointed him ceased to have any jurisdiction over theirl servant : therefore, he ceased to exist. Then the Hawera County Council never appointed Mr. Prosser; but if they had, when the borough was proclaimed Prosser's pound was outside both counties, and neither of those bodies has any jurisdiction outside their boundaries ; and he was' not appointed by the borough at the time of this lawsuit. I challenge the Hawera Bench to show a case where the officer of a public body retained his appointment when his employers ceased by the clear wording of a Statute to have any jurisdiction over him. The Bench's Verdict dwells on officers appointed by publio bodies, " holding their appointment until succeeded by someone else, or dismissed by a new local body." Just so. If the Bench had acted on this, I would have no cause to complain. I would remind the Bench that Mr. McRae was appointed to succeed Mr. Prosser by the Hawera County Council, and he can act as poundkeeper, being within the county; but I again challenge the Bench to show how Mr. Prosser could be appointed poundkeeper under the Counties Act, either now or when the case was heard, as he is outside both counties. I did not expect to gain this case from the very moment Mr. Parrington showed the Bench that if I gained the case, " it would be a serious matter for Prosser, as he would he liable to refund all monies received through the pound since separation." Captain Wilson appeared to set himself from that moment to save Prosser, as the following, I think, will plainly show: — When Mr. Matthews stated that the poundkeeper required to be re-appointed by the Hawera County after separation took place, Capt. Wilson said that "if that was the case, the publicans would have to be reappointed, and re-licensed also." Did Captain Wilson not know that the poundkeeper was a servant of the Council, and that the publican was not ? Did he not know that the Council has neither power to license a house or take a license away? Did he not know that there is a Licensing Act to deal with publicans ? I believe Captain Wilson knew nil this; but the poundkeeper was to be saved from the consequences of his own illegal act, and I have been made the unfortunate victim. — I am, &c, Charles Quin. Normanby, April 11, 1882.

Bankers : Bank of New Zealand. Treasurer and Secretary (interim): A. H. Moore. This Company is projected for the purpose of manufacturing Cheese, Butter* and Bacon on the American Factory-system. The Directors place this project before the farmers of the district and the public generally with the fullest confidence, believing that this district is eminently adapted for dairying; that the time has come when farmers should move out of the old rut of profitless stock raising; that similar factories in other less favored districts in the colony, have proved undoubtedly successful*; that the markets for dairy produce are now certain and unlimited. The Company proposes to purchase milk from shareholders only; the quantity of milk to be supplied by each contributor will be regulated as far as practicable to his interest in the Company. No site has been fixed upon, but it is considered that it should be as near to the port of shipment as convenient, due regard being had to the present and probable future supplies of milk. Applications for shares will be ; received by the Interim Secretary, from whom forms of applications may be received. The share list will close on the seventeenth day of February, 1885.
