A LICENSING CASE. . In the Supreme Court to-day Messrs Stout and O’Boirno, of Invercargill appeared in support of a motion to quash tho conviction of John Kerrigan, of Campbeltown (Bluff), hotelkeeper, on a charge of selling liquor to a person already in a state of intoxication, air Macalister, ot Invercargill, appeared to oppose the motion. After hearing argument Mr Justice Sim held that the conviction, so far as it embodied the endorsement of license, was bad and must be struck out. Ihe irregularity was the pronouncing of the sentence that the defendant should be fined, and his license endorsed before any attempt was made to comply with section 247. No costs were allowed.
