INTERPROVINCIAL.

[Per United Press Association.]

AUCKLAND, October 11. As the result of correspondence between certain brewers and some' clergymen, the former promised aid in putting down Sunday trading in tied houses. The publicaßS—at least a section of them—wished to give the thing a fair trial. Yesterday the new system came into force. The publicans who fell.into line kept .watch upon the;dissentients. The police report very favorably of the change, stating that they saw groups of thirsty souls going into certain publichouses, but, from the brief space which elapsed before they came out again, it is believed that the landlords had only time to say "No, gentlemen, the bar is closed." Last evening the detectives arretted on warrant Richard Henry Keast, the charge being that about June 5 he forged a letter purporting to be signed by Lucy Aspin for £2 and uttering the same and obtaining £1 of such sum. Keast is said to have been an evangelist on the Auckland gumfields Borne time ago, obtaining this position on the strength of a number of testimonials purporting to have been presented to him in America and Australia. In these addresses he i 3 styled ",the Australan evangelist."- At the times mentioned iu the addresses, however, Keast ha 3 admitted that he was an overseer on a plantation in Fiji. Hia real occupation was formerly that of a seaman. WANGANUI, October 11. The licensee of the Criterion Hotel was fined Is and costs for supplying liquor.to a prohibited person. The defence was that the licensee had been here only three mouths and did not know the prohibited pereon. Tae magistrate said that prohibition being absolute it was not necessary to prove that the licensee knew the person t:> whom the liquor was supplied. He admitted that the law might operate harshly against licensees who acted honestly and in ignorance of the factthat the person supplied was prohibited. Notice of appeal was given.

WELLINGTON, October 11. The Wellington Meat Export Company have fitted up a cool chamber for the storage of eggs. This process is largely used in America, where it is superseding other methods of preserving eggs. Further experience as to the defective ammunition happened on Saturday, when several men had their fingers scorched through cartridges exploding backwards. Pigeon fanciers find that their racers are frequently shot or detained, and the local society have been collecting evidence against persons at Wanganui aud Paltnerston North for the purpose of prosecuting them. The Appeal Court opened this morning, all the Judges baing present. The unveiling of Judge Richmond's picturo was postponed for the attendance of some of the barristers.
