HENRY DURHAM, beerseller, Stanley Street,
was summoned by the Nuisance Inspector, for
keeping pigs in such a state as to be a nuisance
to the neighbourhood, contrary to the Bye-laws.
In the backyard, the Inspector found a sow and
six young pigs, and under a cooler, two other pigs.
The case was adjourned for a week to give
DURHAM the opportunity to dispose of them.

PRESTON PUBLICAN'S CURIOUS DEATH.
William Gornall, beerseller, Stanley Street, Preston, has died under the following circumstances. Since Friday he had been confined to bed suffering from inflammation of the lungs. On Sunday, in his delirum, he got out of bed and fell down stairs, fracturing several ribs. He told his son that a man hit him on his head with a lump of wood at the top of the stairs. Death ensued yesterday from shock.

The Prince Consort, an ante-1869 beer house, was next dealt with, Mr. Parker appearing to support the licence. The owners are Albion Burton-on-Trent Brewery Co., the lessee is Mr. G. D. Hale, and the tenant Joseph Durham.
In the course of his evidence Inspector Clayton described the stairway in the house as dark, steep, and dangerous, adding that the late tenant fell down and broke his neck. Mr. Parker held the inquest on him. (Laughter)
Mr. Parker: "I shall be swearing you if you don't mind, Clayton." (Laughter)
Continuing, Clayton described the sanitary conditions as objectionable, and effective police supervision was impossible. There were two lodging houses practically within the beer house yard, which were sublet by the licensee.
Mr. Smith: "So there are facilities for illicit trading?" "Exceptionally." There were no previous convictions and only one transfer since 1900.
Mr. Parker pressed Clayton respecting the facilities for drinking, and said if a police force was stationed in the lobby he could not prevent illicit drinking.
"That does not say much for the police." (Laughter) "Well, it's a fact. Witness did not wish to suggest there had been any attempt to contravene the law. The landlord had conducted the house well."
Mr. Parker pointed out that the rent was £40 a year, and did not think the evidence as to effective police supervision was called for.
