5 March 1891
At the police court to-day, before Messrs. W. Bridle, M. Twohy, and A. Myers, Js.P., 22 Chinese were charged with being found in a common gaming-house.
Two were discharged and 20 were found guilty.
Tin Quock, the owner of the premises, was sentenced to pay a fine of £5, with the alternative of two months in Gundagai Gaol; the other 19 were sentenced to a fine of £1, or one month each.
All denied having means or money, and several were defiant, saying, "No give more money; go to lockup."
Most of the batch subsequently paid the fines.
