0.- THE NEW INQUISITION. Sir,—I see by a report of the proceedings of the Hoole District Council, at a recent meeting, the life of a well-known official-a much respected citizen of Chester-was seriously threatened! It seems to me that some of our local governors deserve a similar fate to that in store for the doomed official' at Hoole. As a publican, I have been asked in the most inquisitorial manner to give information about my business, the amount of my takings, the quantity of beer I sell, and a lot of similar questions by those who represent the rating authorities. Such a demand is-as I am told in a circular which I received this morning- not only illegal, but impertinent, and I sin- cerely hope that all my fellow traders will refuse to recognise any right on the part of those who ask it to the information in question. —Yours truly, A PUBLICAN.
