39. No holder of a General License or a Bottle License shall permit or suffer the game of billiards or bagatelle to be played in his house in respect of which such General License or Bottle License is held nor shall any bagatelle or billiard table be or be kept therein unless a special permission in writing has been obtained from a Resident Magistrate or two or more Justices having jurisdiction within the licensing district within which the house is situate and for which permission the annual fee of ten shillings for each bagatelle table and five pounds for each billiard table shall be paid to the Provincial Treasury: Provided that no such game shall be played in such licensed house on Sunday or on any day on which by this Ordinance the licensed house is forbidden to be kept open and no such games shall be played therein except during such hours as the house is permitted to be kept open for the sale of liquors: Provided also that no registration under the "Town and Country Police Ordinance 1862" shall be necessary for any house licensed under this Ordinance nor shall such registration entitle the owner of a license under this Ordinance to allow such tables as aforesaid to be kept in his licensed house or to allow such games to be played therein.
