S. Houghton, and the Seoretary, J. Stanley Bruoe. The Ohairman asked Constable Watt, who is in oharge of the distriot, where the man Paul Graham had prooured the driok on the day he was accidentally killed some weeks ago, a little south of Leithfield. Constable Walt replied that two gallons of beer had been supplied deceased from tho Sefton Hotel early on the day in question, and tbat Graham bad a small glass of beer at the Bailway Hotel, Amberley, the came day. Deoeased did not oall at the Leithfield Hotel on his way home from Amberley, whioh plaoe he left for home at 9 p.m. iv oompany with a man named Busoh. At the inquest Mr Staoe gavo evidence that the men did not oall at his hotel, and he heard them pass at about 10 o'clook on the night of the aeoident. The Ohairman said the Oommittee were not at all satisfied with the explanation, aa it was evident that tbe man had been supplied with drink at other publio-houses than those named, and if it oame to their knowledge who did supply the drink, the lioenses would at onoe be cancelled.

The Chairman replied that it was a very improper question to put, and deolined to make any answer to it. The Ohairman said, before any applications for renewals were made, it would be as well to remark that the Oommittee had resolved not to grant any license beyond 10 p.m. H. M'Lean.
