1889 : Flooding at the Fountain

ANOTHER FLOOD.

Messrs. Oehme, Summerhays & Co., solicitors, wrote stating that Mr. Peter Dale, of the Fountain, Mitcham, had consulted them with reference to the over flowing of the Board’s sewer into their client’s cellars. They understood that the flooding had occurred several occasions and that the attention the Authority’s surveyor had been drawn the fact on more than one occasion, but steps had been taken until October last prevent a recurrence. Mr. Dale estimated that had sustained damage amounting for loss of beer and cost cleansing, in addition to which and his family had suffered severely from inconvenience. It was hoped that the Authority would make some adequate compensation.

The Surveyor said the flooding took place over six months ago.

The Chairman — Then they are debarred from making a claim upon us.

Mr. Philpott said in addition that the flooding was due the excessive rainfall, over which the Authority had control.

The Surveyor said that was not all. The drain was constructed without the consent of the Authority, and stated the time that it would be liable to overflow. He had had an interview with Messrs. Crowley, the brewers, about the matter some time ago, he had no difficulty in convincing them that the tenant was in the wrong.

It was decided to reply that the Authority could not recognise any claim.

Aeronaut becomes licensee of White Hart

Derby Daily Telegraph – Monday 22 September 1890

THE MAGISTRATE AND THE AERONAUT.

Mr. William John Harris, the present occupier, sought to have the license of the White Hart hotel, Upper-green, Mitcham, transferred from himself to Capt. William Dale, the well-known aeronaut. The chairman asked the incoming tenant whether it was his intention to give exhibitions of ballooning at the house.

Captain Dale : No, sir.
Dr. Carpenter: Because it stands to reason that when you are up in the air you cannot be attending to your business.
Captain Dale : No, sir.
Dr. Carpenter : Then the license will be transferred to you on condition that you will not practise ballooning there, whatever you may do elsewhere.

The transfer was effected.

Note: it is not known whether he was related to the Dale family in Mitcham that ran various pubs.
