AN UNFAIR EXCEPTION. While forgetfulness is not an acceptable excuse in the eyes of the law, it is, never- theless, a reasonable excuse. The human memory is faulty, and therefore responsible for much of our worry and disappointment. An illustration of this was furnished at Newtown Petty Sessions on Friday, when a respectable farmer appeared to answer the charge of using a trap without the neces- sary license. For many years he had regu- larly purchased trap and other licenses, and the expiration of these was always notified by the Excise. Now, however, that these licenses are supervised by the police, this reminder has been withdrawn. To this cause the farmer ascribed his forgetfulness. If the notification was considered neces- sary by the Excise, it ought to be con- tinued. We all have to pay the, penalty of forgetfulness, but, surely, the object of the law is to prick forgetfulness, rather than to watch and wait until it serves the opportunity to drag a person into the police court. Of our obligations to pay rates and taxes we are always reminded, if it ir-nrf, .,7 discharged by the prescribed day. Why make this unpleasant exception in the matter of licenses ?
