PLAYING "YANKEE GRAB" FOR DRINKS.

TIMARU, May 17.

Twentyman Wilson, licensee of the Melville Hotel, was fined L 5, and the conviction endorsed on his license, for allowing an unlawful game to be played in his bar last Saturday night. It was proved that men were playing “ Yankee grab ” for drinks, and the Resident Magistrate held this an unlawful game. One point in defence was that defendant was not aware of what was going on, but it was shown that he was in and out of the bar for drinks for the rooms, and the Resident Magistrate said he did not believe the denial of knowledge. The police were informed by a man who swore he saw one of the players cheating with a false die, and the man was convicted of it last Monday.
