Keferring to the letter in our last issue re Pakatoa inebriates' home, it may be stated that none ot the inmates sent there by the Auckland magistrates have ever been committed for a longer term than 12 months, that being the minimum term allowed by the Act, which provides that the order shall specify a period "not being less than 12 months," during which the person so committed shall be detained in the institution. The Native Appellate Court will sit at the Customs Buildings to-morrow morning, when Judges Seth-Smith and McCormick will sit to hear a number of appeal and other cases.
