History[edit | edit source]

In January 1867, the publican was found guilty of assaulting the previous publican:

John George, landlord of the Supreme Court hotel, Lydiard street, was charged with having assaulted Thomas Young, the former landlord of the same premises. The prosecutor deposed that the accused used very abusive language towards him, and also assaulted him very severely about the head, leaving several marks and causing a swelling, from which he had not as yet recovered. The accused stated that the prosecutor gave him very great provocation, and that the marks on his head were the result of a blow given by another person to cure an attack of "diphtheria in the nose." This novel method of curing a novel malady did not seem to have much weight with the bench. The accused called no evidence in his behalf, and stated that he was the worse of liquor at the time. He was fined 40s or, in default, 48 hours' imprisonment.[2]

In June 1873 Thomas Bailey withdrew his application for a license:

The application of Thos. Bailey for a license of the Supreme Court hotel, Service street, was withdrawn, as the house was not yet finished. [3]

In September 1873, Thomas Bailey applied for the license:

Thomas Bailey applied for a license tor the Supreme Court hotel, Lydiard street; Mr Lewis for the applicant; Mr Cuthbert opposed, on the ground that the house was not required in the locality, and that it was in the vicinity of a church and school. Mr Gaunt said he did not think the act contemplated licensing such houses in towns like Ballarat, which only just came within the requirements of the act; and besides, the house was in bad order. License refused.[4]
