At the annual meeting of the Geraldine Licensing Committee yesterday Mr E. J. Smith applied for a renewal of an accommodation license for the Star of the South hotel, Rangitata,the fee for whiah had been fixed at £7. Mr Eaymond appeared to support the application. The Chairman Mr C, A. Wray, S.M., said the committee, understood the house was doing a much' largerjtrade than f ormerly,and they thought Mr Smith should therefore pay a higher fee. Mr Raymond said he supposed the committee was influenced by the propinquity of the house to the Ashburton no-license district. He understood that the business was not very much larger than formerly. He asked that Mr Smith should give evidence. Mr Smith said his bouse was next door to a no-license district, but he had for some time stopped sending any liquor into that district, so far as any quantity was concerned leaving the trade to the wholesale houses. Mr Talbot said Mr Smith would be within hia legal right in .selling the liquor. Mr Smith said yes, but he wished to etop it. -The chairman said the trouble was that anyone Mr Smith might sell the hotel to might not be so particular. Mr Smith said he was the sole owner and licensee, and Mr Eaymond having pointed out the improbability of Mr Smith finding a purchaser for the hotel before the next local option poll the application was granted the fee being increased to .£lO.
