The matter was dismissed on the basis that there was no offence in keeping a disorderly tent. On the same day, on the same facts, Sergeant Caulkin brought the case before the court again. This time on the grounds that Smith had been ‘keeping an unregistered place of public amusement’. Smith was fined five pounds or 14 days imprisonment. (Melanie R.
