Background

History

In January 1903 there was a fight at the hotel, which resulted in the death of the publican. A later inquest decided the cause of death was his falling down the stairs, and that no one was to blame.

Result of a Drunken Brawl. DEATH OF A BALLARAT HOTEL-KEEPER.
Joseph Stallard, licensee of the Plough and Harrow Hotel, Ballarat West, who early on Thursday morning sustained concussion of the brain and compression of the skull, in his hotel, after a quarrel, died on Friday, without having regained consciousness. Deceased, who had been very quarrelsome, was twice assaulted by one of his customers. He was knocked down by one of the blows, and evidently stunned, but on recovering be again challenged his assailant to fight. Notwithstanding that it was approaching dawn, there were several men in the hotel to witness the scrimmage, which occurred while the company were engaged in throwing dice for drinks. There was also gambling going on. The police have been furnished with in formation which shows that some of the gamblers were not sober. The man who, it is alleged, assaulted Stallard, is an employee in the local railway department, but it is said to be tolerably certain that the fatal injuries wore caused by Stallard's falling downstairs from the second landing subsequent to his being knocked down by a man in the bar parlor. An inquest will be held.[1]
