When the application of Mrs Green for a renewal of the license to the Hibernian Inn was called on, Mr Turnbull asked whether the house was required in the locality. Mr Coulter said it was a necessity, as there was no other public house near it, and it was one of the cleanest and best-conducted houses in town.
The Mayor said Mrs Green was a most industrious, respectable woman who conducted the house admirably. He had visited and inspected the house, and found it a model of cleanliness.
The Chairman added–And that we may assume to be the nearest approach to godliness that can be expected of a publican.
