Evening Telegraph; Dublin, Ireland; Friday, 8 Apr 1904

The Recorder sat in Green street Courthouse to-day and took up the business
of the City Sessions. The Grand Jury were sworn, but were immediately
discharged, as there was no Crown business.
The Recorder then took up the hearing of licensing applications. Transfers
were granted for the following: - Daniel Connell, 52 New street; Patrick Cotter,
1 Aughrim street; Robert J. Cusack, 45 Lower O'Connell street; John Keogh
Hendrick, 141 St. Stephen's Green; Philip P. Hynes, 17 D'Olier street; Margaret
O'Dwyer, 25 Denzille street; Joseph O'Reilly, 25 Lower Tyrone street; and James
Phelan, 108 Clanbrassil street.
Mr. M.J. Dunn (instructed by Mr. H.J. McCormick, solicitor) appeared for
the Irish Association for the Prevention of Intemperance. Mr. J.B. Moriarty, the
secretary of the Association, was also present.
Mr. M.S. Bergin, solicitor, appeared for the Licensed Grocers and Vintners'
Protection Association. The following officials of that O Grady, chairman; Mr.
T. Cunniam, vic-Association were also present: Mr. A. chairman; and Mr. M.
O'Byrne, assistant-secretary.
Mr. Lynch, solicitor, of the Crown Solicitor's Office, appeared for the
While one of the transfer applications was being heard.
Mr. M'Auley, B.L., referred to the respectability of the applicant.
The Recorder said he did not want to be speaking of respectability. Dublin,
in his opinion, was a sink of publicanism. It was saturated with it.
Mr. Edward Moore applied for a transfer of the license attached to the
premises, 14 Eden quay. It appeared that the premises were licensed in the name
of Andrew M'Nally, and they were burned accidentally. Mr. M'Nally afterwards
left Ireland, giving power of attorney to the Hibernian Bank to sell. The
license duty was paid up to the 10th October, 1903, and in September the bank
made a letting to Mr. Moore, with a view to purchase the latter. A magistrate's
transfer was obtained by Mr. Moore.
Mr. M'Auley (instructed by Mr. J.L. Burke) appeared for the applicant.
Mr. T.M. Healy, K.C., M.P. (instructed by Mr. Gerald Byrne) appeared for
the Hibernian Bank in support of the application.
Mr. J.M. Day (instructed by Mr. W.V. Seddan) opposed the application on
behalf of the Rev. J. Ford Leathley, chaplain to the Seamen's Mission. He said
there were no less than eleven publichouses within 150 yards of the place for
which this application was made and which was next door to the Mission. M'Nally
went away in March, 1903, and counsel submitted that he never had any intention
of returning.
The Recorder said in his opinion Mr. M'Nally had acted in a most
straightforward manner. He had, he considered, abandoned these premises.
Mr. Healy said Mr. M'Nally had obtained £600 insurance money for the
premises that had been burned ,and had been very fairly treated.
The Recorder allowed the case to stand until May 9th. If the Hibernian Bank
entered into a deed carrying out the terms mentioned by M'Nally, liquidating
certain debts of his, and discharging him from all liability, he would be
inclined to grant the application.
The case was accordingly adjourned.
The Recorder said he wished the Temperance party would do something more
than simply oppose licenses. Their action was like taking the fringe of the
waves of the sea and thinking they were draining the ocean. He would like if
they would secure the system of public-houses which he had long been yearning
