Canterbury Journal, Kentish Times and Farmers' Gazette, Saturday 14 February 1885.

David Munro, landlord of the "Alfred Arms" public house, New Town Ashford, was summoned for permitting gaming in his house.

Mr. Bannon appeared for defendant.

The evidence of Police-constable Jay and Marshall was to the effect that on Thursday, January 29th, defendant attended the Licensed Victuallers dinner at the "Royal Oak Hotel." The New Town Band engaged a room at his house to practice in every Thursday, and while he was away they locked themselves in, and were heard by Marshall and Jay playing "nap" for pence.

Fined 5, and 10s. costs.
