. December 6. This morning at the Licensing Court,composed of Mr. Maitland Brown, Dr. Greville and Mr. H. A. Spalding, Wing On Woo and Co., Chinese merchants, applied for a Gallon License through their solicitor, Mr. Du Boulay. Mr. Wilson, as solicitor for other licensed persons, opposed the application on tho grounds that there were already sufficient gallon licenses in the town, and also that Fong Long, the head of the firm, was a Chinaman. The Bench refused to consider the last objection, stating that although Fong Long was a Chinese he had been naturalised and would be treated as a British subject. The applieation was granted.
