Evan Anthony was a publican in Ballarat, Victoria, <1909-1916>.
In 1909 he was charged with serving liquor outside trading hours:
A story regarding an interrupted supper –the chief articles in which were corned beef and sliced tomatoes –was related in the City Court on Friday when Evan Anthony, licensee of the Royal Standard Hotel was fined £5 because a number of young men had been found on his premises after hours. Senior-constable Barber gave evidence as to having heard noises which led him and Constable Hayes to enter the hotel. They found inside the bar glasses containing fresh liquor. On a table was some bread. Mrs Anthony wife of the licensee said that her supper was spread on the table. She had had some refreshments herself prior to retiring for the night. The men on the premises had booked beds for the night, and their names had been entered up by her in the lodgers' book. The police evidence was to the effect that the names were not in the book when it was produced at the hotel. Mr. Murphy P M, asked for the production of the book and having seen the names therein commented on the irregularity with which the book had been kept. Four men found in the hotel pleaded guilty, and were each fined 10/.
