Ur. Higgins aallel John H. Gaidar, the proprietor of the temperance honte. Mr Gelder had lived at Bt. Georges since 1839.

There were licensed hotels that sell liquor within three, four, seven end 10 miles of St. Georges. On crose-ex amination, he raid the room that was kept open at all times, was not especially for the accomodation of the canal company and he hud never refused to accommodate A. ter of be of anyone. Justice Geo. W . Townsend told bow Calder'e house came to be established.
