, WANGANUI, February 9. J Hotelkeepers' obligations to', the travelling public formed the crux of an interesting case heard at the Court to-day. H. J. Hodder, the licensee of the Upokongaro Hotel, was charged s-with. having rehised to provide a meal for two men who arrived at the hotel about midnight. They had travelled all day, being engaged bringing' young horses from Jerusalem, up the Wanganui River, to the horse fair. The night was very rough W:hen they reached Upokongaro, and they aroused the licensee of the hotel, who directed them to the paddock and ;stables and afterwards' showed them .-to- a room. „ They asked for supper, but the licensee said he could not awaken the servant at that hour of the. night. He also refused to give them bread and cheese. The licensee, in his evidence, declared that the men did not insist on obtain-: ing food. . ' The Magistrate inflicted a fine of £5 with £3 8s costs. He remarked that hotelkeepers had great privileges' but sometimes forgot their obligations to the public. It was cases of this sort that gave a handle to prohibitionists.
