BROUGHTON PETTY SESSIONS. » THURSDAY.—Before Messrs. W. Carstairs Jones (chairman), J. Watkinson, R. Podmore, and F. L. Hancock. UNDER PROOF WHISKY AT SALTNBY.—• Charles Burlinson, licensee of the Queen's Hotel, Saltney, was summoned under the Food and Drugs Act for selling adulterated whisky. Mr. J. B. Mars ton (Mold) appeared for the defence.—Inspector Robert Jones (Flint) said he visited the hotel on September 7th and purchased a pint of whisky from defendant's wife, to whom he paid 2a. for it. He divided the whisky into three parts, one of which he sent to Chester to have analysed. It was found that the whisky contained more water than it legally should by 1 per cent.—Mr. Marston Did you sample any of the whisky your- self ?—The Inspector: What do you mean ? (Laughter.)—Mr. Marston said his client, who occupied a tied house, was in the habit of sending to his brewery for proof spirit which he (the publican) reduced to its proper strength by adding a certain quantity of water. The brewery having run short ot whisky defendant went to Chester and bought some reduced spirit there, and his wife, who was under the impression that it was proof spirit, added so much water with the result already known. At the time Mrs. Burlinson was quite innocent that the whisky had previously been reduced.— The Magistrates retired, and upon their return the Chairman said they considered the case proved, and Burlinson would be fined £1 and costs.. MOLD JUNCTION COFFBB, 50 PER CENT. CiticoEty.-A summons was also taken out against the Co-operative Society Stores at Mold Junction for adulteration of coffee.—Mr. Marston defended.—Inspector Jones said he went to the stores on the 7th of September, and was supplied with half a pound of loose coffee, for which he gave 10d., by an assistant. Of the three parts he divided he had one analysed, and it was discovered that this part contained 56 per cent. of chicory.—Mr. Marston said there was no reason or motive for his clients to be dishonest, when nearly all of the customers were members of the firm.-The Bench, how- ever, took a serious view of the case and imposed a fine of L5 and costs (E6 altogether.)
