CREWE. ALCOHOL IN TEMPERANCE DRINKS.—At Crewe, on Tuesday, Richard Jones, refreshment-house keeper, was charged with selling beer without a licence. The Excise said the defendant sold to an officer beer and stout containing from 3 to 4 3-10th per cent of proof spirit, which was from 50 to 100 per cent. more than was allowed. The defendant said he understood he was selling only pure temperance drinks. He was fined 5s. and costs. INNKEEPER AND HER 'INVITIED GUESTS.'—At Crewe, on Tuesday, Martha Lloyd, of the Masonic Inn, was charged with keeping open her premises during prohibited hours. P.S. Currie said that about 10.45 on Sunday evening, August 22, he heard singing from an upper room at the defendant's house. There was also piano playing. The songs were not sacred. He watched the house for about an hour, and heard some one come down to the bar and turn on the light. In company with two constables he went to the house. They knocked three times, and the defendant opened the door. She said at first that those within were members of her family, but afterwards her manager said he had two of his friends upstairs. The police went upstairs and found two young men named Challiner and Price, who each had whisky before them. Defendant said the two young men were her invited guests. They were spending the evening there according to a previous engagement. She had provided them with tea, and also had given them the whisky. John Challiner gave corroborative evidence, and the bench dismissed the case, but remarked that the police had done their duty in bringing it before them.
