History[edit | edit source]

In March 1871, Wine applied for the license of the former Newington Hotel:

TO the licensing Magistrates, Ballarat West. — I EMILY WINE, do hereby give notice that I desire to obtain, and will apply, at the next Licensing Meeting, for a PUBLICAN'S LICENSE for a house situated at Newington, Eyre street west, Ballarat West (formerly known as the Newington Hotel), containing six rooms, exclusive of those required for my family. The Eleventh day of March, A.D.1871. EMILY WINE.[1]

In April 1871 she was refused a license for the hotel in Newington, on the grounds that the building was not in compliance with the act. A grocer's license for John A. Wine was also refused.[2]

In June 1872 the license of an un-named business in Sturt Street was transferred to Emily Wine.[3]

In June 1872 Wine transferred the license of the Sturt Hotel to Mary O'Leary.[4]

In February 1873 the Wines were in dispute with Goller and Co.:

WINE v. GOLLER AND THE BANK OF NEW SOUTH WALES. To the editor of the Courier, Sir, — Will you kindly allow us, through the means of your valuable paper, to totally contradict and deny the statement, made by the defendant as reported in your columns of Tuesday, for which we had two other witnesses— the Carpenters — besides ourselves in court at the time, who were only too anxious to prove that nothing whatever of the kind was said on plaintiffs', side, viz., that Mrs Wine said, "Do you think we are thieves ?" it being a decided falsehood, invented solely for the purpose of counteracting the probable decision of the verdict in our favor. No doubt the case appeared clearly perceptible to all in court, though no doubt painfully obvious to the bankers them selves, that Mr Ochiltree, Mr Goller's brother-in-law, who styles himself Mr Goller's agent, acknowledged that he had not only in our case, but in many others also — in fact, that it had been quite a common occurrence with him - to deal with home moneys without even seeing the "bank orders," or the payee being identified, although plainly stated so on the face of the "bank draft"— We remain, Sir, yours most respectfully, JOHN A. AND EMILY WINE.[5]
