History[edit | edit source]

In August 1882 the publican, Anne Waugh, was charged with breaching the liquor laws:

At the Sebastopol Police Court yesterday, before Messrs Dickenson, Leckie, and Hughes, J’s.P., a woman named Anne Waugh was proceeded against by Sub-inspector Kennedy for supplying spirituous liquors to one William Maher, knowing him to be intoxicated, on the 18th of July last. Mr Gaunt appeared for the defence. The case was very weak, as the only witness called was unable to say whether he saw Maher in the defendant's hotel or not on the day in question. Another witness called was too drunk to appear before the court. It will be remembered that Maher was found dead in a waterhole near the hotel after he is supposed to have left it. The case was struck out.[2]
