James MacLaughlan was charged this morning at the Police Court with having two bales of hops in his possession not entered in the books in accordance with the Beer Duty Act. The officer iD charge of the Customs stated that he visited defondant's brewery at Waitara on May 7, and found two bales of hops, which defendant's son in-law admitted had been received during May, but had not been entered. Mr Hughes is conducting the prosecution forMr Standish (Crown Prosecutor), and Mr Richmond for the defence. The charge was dismissed, as the Magistrate found that defendant proved to his satisfaction that the non-entry in his books was not with a fraudulent intention. A second charge against M'Lauchlan for not entering some beer in his books on May 7 was postponed for witnesses. A third charge, for not keeping brewers' books on the premises, is new proceeding.
