Objection twenty-seven was to the Sunnyside Hotel, corner of Curzon and Arden streets—licensee.
Susan Agnes Kaumple; owner, Castlemaine Brewery Company.
Mr Fitzgerald appeared for the licensee and owners.
Inspector Graves said the hotel was two-storey building, in good repair, of nine rooms, four for the public, with four beds; nearest hotels, 94, 96, 125, 200, 395, 320. 198 and 235 yards distant. The house occupied a fair business site, was in good repair and fairly furnished. The business was all in the bar. Complaints of trading during prohibited hours were few. The bathroom was of rough construction and small, but clean. There was no lease, and the house was held on a weekly tenancy; rent, £3 per week. Tied house to Castlemaine Brewery.
To Mr Fitzgerald: He had had scruples about putting this home in the objected list, because it was a comfortable little house, clean, and everything about it suggestive of comfortable accommodation for the public. He found himself troubled about leaving It out of the recommended list.
Susan Kaumple, the licensee, said she had held the license for eight years, and, had taken it over from her aunt, who had held it for eight years before her.

Somewhat recovered from the injuries he sustained in an encounter at the Sunnyside Arden-street, on 18th ult., Thomas Kelly, laborer, attended at the North Melbourne court yester-day, to prosecute Thomas Kaumple, husband of the licensee, for assault. There were also cross charges of assault and insulting words preferred by Kaumple against Kelly. Kelly and his brother-in-law, Myers Sullivan, visited the hotel, and called for drinks. but Kelly was slow in producing the money, and Kaumple took the drinks into the bar parlor to supply customers there. Kelly then used insulting words, and picked up a heavy match-stand off the counter to throw at Kaumple, who struck Kelly on the arm with a cricket stump. A scuffle followed. Kelly, it was alleged, endeavored to strike Kaumple with pewter pots and used insulting words, and Kaumple the attacked him with a red hot poker, causing a severe scalp wound and a jagged wound on the face, which was treated at the Melbourne Hospital. On the charge of assault Kaumple was fined 20/, or seven days’ imprisonment, and on the cross charge of insulting words Kelly was also fined 20/, or seven days’ imprisonment. The cross charge of assault was dismissed.
