Good Friday Hotel Trading.

United Press Association—By Electric Telegraph. Thames, May 15 Among licensing oases brought under the new Act before Magistrate Bush, several residents were charged with being on licensed premises on Good Friday. In oases where the Magistrate accepted as a lawful excuse the ploa that defendants were using conveniences outside the hotel proper, or that they were guests of the landlord, he dismissed the informations. In cases where residents went on licensed premises and were then invited to tea, the magistrate held that defendants had not entered the premises as guests, and could not be treated as such, and recorded convictions. He dismissed charges of exposing liquor for sale on Good Friday, where the only persons, so far as the evidence went, to whom liquor was exposed, were the police.
