TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Mr Sinclair—the solicitor for the applicant for the Exhibition license—according to your report of the Licensing Committee meeting, truly stated, in reply to Mr Adams, the solicitor for the objectors, " that he was not called upon to give any reasons at all why he wished a further adjournment," and that adjournment, too, to an illegal date. To the uninitiated, this apparent desire of the Committee to play into the hands of the applicant by desiring no reasons whatever for an (djournment may seem strange. Who ever heard of an already adjourned case being adjourned again without a reason being given to a qualified objector ? I never did. This being a leisure day I have taken the trouble to look through the Licensing Act, and am perfectly satisfied that this license cannot be granted for Beveral reasons—that is, in a legal manner. Supposing all the conditions had been complied with by the applicant, the action of the Committee in adjourning to the date they have would of itself make them legally incompetent to act in the manner desired, which your readers can satisfy themselves upon by considering clause 43 of the Licensing Act,—l am, etc., Citizen. Dunedin, July 1.
