The Quarterly meeting of the Borough of Ashburton Licensing Committee was held this morning at the Courthouse. Present —Messrs H. T. Winter (Chairman), Alfred Saunders, and R. Alcorn. Police Report. —The report of the Sergeant of Police was read, and found satisfactory. • The Ashburton Hotel.— Mr Branson appeared to support an application for the permanent transfer *of this- 'hotel to Thomas Orphine. The police having no objection l , the transfer was granted.' Extension op Hours. —Mr Crisp appeared ort behalf of 'the miblioans of Ashburton, to make an application for allowing the opening of the hotels up to 11 o’clock each night. He instanced that in some other towns the hotels were 1 allowed to bo open up till 12 o’clock. In reply to the Chairman, Sergeant Feltijn" itaid he had no objection to offer to the application. As far as he believed, there had been rather more cases of drunkenness since the homes had been closed at 10 o’clock, but this he accounted for as the result of an increase in the population. Country people had complained about the inconvenience of the hotels being.closed especially pn the bjghta,o| any enter tain me nts, etc., being held in the town. After a slight consultation, the Bench decided upon giving'thb present Acta fair trial; and the matter of extending the open hours would be fully considered at the first annual meeting. The application was therefore allowed to stand over for the pr. sent. This being all the business, the Committee adjourned.
