Southern Cross, 17th April 1872
The annual licensing meeting for the Auckland district was held yesterday at noon in the Police Court, High-street. An immense crowd was in attendance. The following magistrates took their seats upon the bench: Messrs. Thomas Beckham, R.M. (chairman); Archibald Clark; J. R. Nicho'son, M.D.j P. A. Philips, Mayor J. H. Home, Joseph May, T. Cheeseman, Thomas Ritchie, and J. Holt.
The various Acts relating to the granting of licenses in this province were put in.
The Mayor presented an address embodying a series of resolutions passed at the public meeting held some time ago uudor the auspices of the Alliance for the Suppression of the Liquor Traffic.
Mr. Broham stated that in his room was waiting a deputation to present a petition to the Benoh. Would he be permitted to usher them in The Bench gave permission, and a deputation, consisting of the Rev. Dr. Mauusell, Rev. Dr. Wallis, the Rev. Messrs. C. W. Rigg, S. Edger, Waters, Cornford, and Messrs. 0. Lewis, Coupland, Le Roy, and several others, was then ushered in by Inspector Broham. Dr. Maimsell on coming forward stated that the memorial he held in his hand was signed by 2,000 of the public. It came from no particular section of the people, but from the public at large. It was against the granting of any new licenses to new public-houses.
Mr. Boveridge objected to this statement being made to the Court. The memorial, or petition, whatever it was, was said to be signed by a large number of inhabitants, not from any one district, but from the whole public. The memorial was not drawn up and signed in the way prescribed by the Act. A certain course of procedure was laid down in the Act passed by the Provincial Council, and when the petition did not comply with that it could not be received. He therefore objected to the Bench receiving it, as it was extrajudicial.
Mr. Hesketh also supported Mr. Beveridge, and thought the conduct of the Mayor, in leaving his seat on the bench, and presenting the address adopted at a meeting of which he was chairman, and afterwards resuming his seat upon the bench, was not proper. The Chairman asked whether the memorial was one under the Act.
Mr. O. Lewis stated that the memorial was not under the Act. It was a general expression of the opinion of the public Mr. Beveridge then submitted, with all respect to the Bench and the Venerable Archdeacon who was presenting the memorial, that the Bench could not receive it. Some discussion ensued, after which the Chairman expressed himself strongly upon the propriety of presenting such a memorial to the Bench. It was a reflection upon them, and implied that they had not done their duty in the past. He was only speaking for himself, and he could say that he had been 32 years a Magistrate here, and during all that time he was not aware that he had ever neglecteded to do his duty. He may have made mistakes at times that was but human, but he never shrank from doing his duty, and he did not like to be goaded on to do his duty by a memorial of that kind. He then consulted with his fellow Magistrates about receiving the memorial, and they decided to receive it.

The memorial waa then read as follows "To the Worshipful the Justices of the Peace of the city of Auckland, in session assembled The humble petition of the undersigned inhabitants of the city of -Auckland and its viciuity showeth, That your petitioners learn with regret that several new applications have been made to your worshipful Court for licenses to sell intoxicating liquors. Your petitioners firmly believe that it would be inimical to the welfare of social order to have the number of public-houses (which your petitioners are convinced are already more than sufficient to meet the supposed requirements of the population) increased and your petitioners, as in duty bound, earnestly entreat your Worships to refuse all applications for additional licenses. Your petitioners would also humbly desire to express their hope that, in the case of houses against which information may have been laid for misconduct, your Worships will deem it expedient to refuse a renewal of any such licenses, And your petitioners will ever pray. " Here follow the 2,600 signatures.] The Bench then proceeded to dispose of the applications brought "before them, with the following results Renewals of Licenses. .....
