The girl said her mother was dead, but her father was living in Dunedin, A married woman applied to the Riverton Police Court yesterday to have a prohibition order against her husband revoked, urging that he was unbearable without a little drink. The police said that the order had made little difference to the man, he being drunk as often now as before the order was issued. The Bench declined the application, and said that they would inflict a severe penalty if the man came up for drunkenness. The town of Riverton has been made lively for the last few days through the advent of au individual calling himself Dr Shannon. He got fourteen days' for disorderly behaviour while drunk. It was then elicited that he was identical with a man who bad served a number of sentences from Auckland southwards for vagrancy, assault, etc.
