The opinion that the penalty should be £100 or 12 months' imprisonment without the right of trial by jury in cases where Europeans illicitly traded in liquor with the Maoris was expressed by Police-Superinten-dent Scott, the first witness before the Royal Commission on Licensing at its Dunedin sitting to-day. Superintendent Scott thought there should be no change in the hours for the sale of liquor in hotels, save that no useful purpose was served by the two to four closing on Saturdays.
