Details: Constable William Rouse and Constables Anthony, Hannell and Smith were charged by Mr. Simon Kemp with neglect of duty in allowing prisoners of the Crown to remain in his house contrary to Law.....Mr. Kemp testified....Mr. Reid s men have been in the habit of coming into my house every Saturday night for this last 12 months. The constables have seen them there and did not take due notice of it according to the Act. They were there last Saturday week and the Saturday before that some of Mr. Reid s men by the name of Mills and Harlock, prisoners of the Crown were there on the day mentioned. William Page, prisoner of the Crown assigned to James Reid has been seen by the constables in my house repeatedly and I conclude from my being fined on a similar case that it must be contrary to law.....Constable Thomas Smith testified...I have been in the habit of coming into Mr. Kemps House for the last 12 months. I have seen some of Mr. Reid s men in the house. Page, Mills, Morris and Harlock. I have seen Morris sitting down in the tap room. The reason why I did not turn them out was because I understood that when Mr. Reid was magistrate that they were allowed to go to Mr. Kemp s House. I do not recollect that Constable Rouse ever gave me orders not to turn out Mr Reid s assigned servants from Mr. Kemps. I did think that Mr. Kemp as Mr. Reids agent was allowed to entertain Mr. Reid s assigned servants. When it has happened that Rouse has gone with me to Mr. Kemp s public house and the men were in the tap room it has been understood by me that Mr. Kemp had written permission from Mr. Reid to entertain his assigned servants. I never saw Mr. Kemp allow anything disorderly in his house wilfully in the way of breaking the law. I recollect about six months ago Mr. Reid relieved two men from the watch house, his assigned servants....Constable Rouse testified in his defence...Some time ago about six or eight months ago I took two of Mr. Reids assigned servants Morris and Harlock out of Mr, Kemp s tap room. I confined them in the watch house for being there illegally as I considered without a pass. They remained there some little time when I came to the watch house again I was informed by the constable on duty that Mr. Reid had relieved them. I received a reprimand from Mr. Reid putting them in the watch house as Mr Kemp was his general agent, Mr. Reid being a Magistrate I was bound to obey his orders. Constable Hannell testified in his defence....The reason he did not turn the men out of Mr. Kemp s public house was that he always considered Mr. Kemp to be Mr. Reids superintendent. I heard Mr. Reid say so in the public court some time ago. I put one of Mr. Reids men by the name of Morris for being drunk in the street I complained at that time to the Bench at that time that Mr. Reids men were allowed to go to Mr. Kemp s at all hours in the day and till eight oclock at night and of the trouble they gave us. The men were always saucy to us when they were spoken to by us...Constable Anthony in defence testified....He has only to state what Rouse has already stated being an eye witness. Verdict....The Constables having acted under the authority of Mr. Reid as a Magistrate the complaint is dismissed
