JOHN EAMER, landlord of the Pedder's Arms
public house, Welldield Road, was summoned for
keeping open his house for the sale of intoxicating
liquor on Sunday 4th March.

P.D. Whalley said at 9 o'clock on the morning of
the 4th March, he saw a woman named Mrs. Southwick,
enter the Pedder's Arms by the front door, which was, 
at the time, open. She remained in a short time, and
then came out with a pint bottle of beer under her

He took her back to the house and told the landlord
what he had seen. Eamer told him that he had been
told the beer was for two men who had come to her
house from Lancaster. The witness went with
Southwick to her house, and he did see there two men
of the name of Graham and Redhead, who said they
had come to Preston the day before.

The defendant was referred to the Section of the relevant 
act, which stated that "he must have slept the previous 
night more than three miles from the place where the
sale takes place," whereas the men had been in the
town for a day.

Fined 10s plus costs. 7 days in prison in default.
Southwick was ordered to pay costs.
