WINGHAM BREWSTER SESSIONS.

Thursday.— Before C. J. Plumtre Esq. (in the chair), F. Phillips, Esq., Lord Northbourne, A. N. Wollaston, Esq., and W. V. Lister, Esq.

Application Refused.

Mr. Hardman applied on behalf of Messrs, Gardner, Ash Breweiy, for a licence for consumption on the premises at a new house to be erected at Addisham.

Messrs. Gardner, is was explained, proposed to do a way with an existing "off" licence if the application proved successful.

Mr. Henry Fielding, solicitor, Canterbury, opposed the application on behalf of the Rev. J. H. Carr and other residents of Adisham.

Mr. E. W. Fry, architect, Dover, produced a plan showing the proposed new house. It would, he said, be a red brick building and contain spacious rooms. The building would cost 600 and the annual value would be about 35 or 40. There was no licensed house within half a mile.

Mr. Austin Gardner also gave evidence in support of the application.

Mr. Henry Fielding then addressed the Bench, observing that he appeared on behalf of 32 residents of the parish. At the present time there were two fully licensed houses in the parish, and in the opinion of the opposition the new licence was not required. The nearest house was about half a mile off, and the traffic past the house was not considerable.

Dr. Hardman pointed out that this was not an application for a new licence but merely for a transfer from one building to another in an enlarged form. Dr. Hardman went on to point out the great inconvenience caused, not only to the tenant, but to customers by the existing "off" licence and the greet difficulty the tenant had in impressing upon customers the necessity of taking their liquor not simply out of the house but a considerable distance from it.

The Bench then retired, and, on returning into Court, the Chairman said the licence would be refused.
