A Biassed Magistrate. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 29 April 1898

A Biassed Magistrate. The Victorian Full Court has just delivered a judgment which will be of some interest to tee totallers, and much more to the general public. Tho matter came before the Court in the form of an application to repeal 'a license issued by the Melbourne Licensing Bench on the ground that one of the members of the Bench, Mr. Panton, P.M., had been guilty of 'bias.' It seems that Mr. Punton was alwavs baen a strong supporter of the colonial wine trade, and has at various times expressed his opinion as to ite advantages. The Court, after hearing a good deal of argument, delivered an elaborate judg ment, and by a majority of two to ono decided that the magistrate had been guilty of bias. Comparing the deliverences of the learned judges it seems that the gi&t of the matter ia the construction of the words 'reasonable' and ' fairly' English authorities have laid it *!own, and our courts ha«e acted in tho same Bpirit, that whereyer a number of persons ' fairly susp...
