'Hotel Licensee Fined
In No. l Adelaide Police Court yesterday, Hannah Habit Muir, licensee of the Cathedral Hotel, North Adelaide was fined £5, reduced to £1, with £1 costs, for having unlawfully permitted liquor to be consumed on the hotel premises during prohibited hours on February 4.
Assistant Police Prosecutor Dayman told Mr. Muirhead, P.M., that Mrs. Muir had permitted two persons to consume liquor at a meal when she did not have a permit for such purpose. Mr. A. S. Blackburn, who appeared for Mrs. Muir, said his client had been honestly under the impression that she had paid the fee for a permit to provide liquor with meals.'
