P.A. WELLINGTON, this day. "This Court has given plenty of warnings. Bookmakers are springing up like mushrooms," said Mr. J. L. Stout, S.M., in the Magistrate's Court to-day, when imposing a fine of £100 on Bert Ambrose Simson, salesmen, aged 60, the first of six persons who appeared on Gaming Act charges. "If that doesn't stop it, I will have to adopt the suggestion of the Chief Justice, Sir Michael Myers, and impose imprisonment in the first instance. The thing is scandalous. There are six up this morning." The total amount of fines imposed to-day was £760. Five men charged with bookmaking were fined amounts ranging from £100 to £200 and a woman charged with knowingly permitting her premises to be used as a common gaming house was fined £10. The other fines were imposed as follows: —Edward George O'Malley Nunns, retired, aged 50, £150; Robert Watts, dealer, aged 35, £200; Leslie Archibald Burns, agent, aged 36, £350; John Matthew Stobart, hairdresser and tobacconist, aged 55, £150.
