MAORIS PURLOIN BEER.

WELLINGTON, April 10. At Whangarei thirteen Maori soldiers, members of the Main Body, were this morning before the Court for the theft of a ten-gallon barrel of beer from the Kaikohe railway station platform. They were on the way to Whangarei to get discharged, and they took the barrel into a carriage locked themselves in and drank out of a bucket, all being more or less intoxicated. One locked himself in the lavatory and the door had to be taken off to get him out. The Bench took a lenient view of the case and fined them the cost of the beer, 5s each, and 5s lOd railway fare.
