WOMAN MOTORIST FINED

INTOXICATION CHARGE "At the most I submit this was a borderline case, and that there is not •sufficient evidence to warrant a conviction," said Mr. Stevens in the Police Court this morning, when appearing for Ellen Mary Hoyles (63), housekeeper, who denied a charge of being in a state of intoxication while in charge of a motor car in Swanson Street yesterday. At the conclusion of the evidence Mr. S. I. Goodall, S.M., said defendant's case had been very well presented, but in view of the evidence of a traffic constable and the certificate given by the examining doctor, he j would enter a conviction. "I think defendant was very agitated," added the magistrate. "It is not one of those serious cases, and in view of her previous gocd record, and her record as a motor driver, I will impose a fine of £5 but Will not inter-j fere with her driving license."
