    A QUESTION OF JURISDICTION.
    In the Banco Court, Sydney, on Tuesday, before tlie Chief Justice, the question of whether or not justices of the peace, sitting as a Court of Petty Sessions may sit upon any particular day, or only upon an appointed day was argued on an application by Sebastian Weismantcl for a writ of prohibition directed to William Reginald Grptty, police officer, and AVilliam Gorton, Villiers Adolphus Richard Champion, and Alexander M'Donald M'Kenzio, Js.P. Weisniantel was proceeded against at the Stroud Police Court on a charge of having on February 13 last sold a bottle of sherry ,wine without holding a license. Ho pleaded guilty before the justices named, and was fined £100. It was argued that the justices were not a Court of Petty Sessions, and had no jurisdiction to hear and determine the charge; that they, were not a Court of Petty Sessions properly constituted, as they purported to hold tho Court on a day othor than the 'day regularly appointed for the holding ,of it; that tho applicant was punished as for a second offence without having been charged with it; and that there was no legal evidence that he had committed any previous offence.

GOLF OBITUARY Mr. Benjamin Morgan A shadow of gloom was cast over the town of Burrowa on Tuesday morning last when it was announced that one of the grand old type of pioneers, in the person of Mr. Benjamin Morgan, had passed away. The late Mr. Morgan, had reached the age of 83 years, and although he had enjoyed robust health through out life his health began to fail about two months ago, and gradu- ally becoming weaker, his end came peacefully. Deceased was one of Boorowa's oldest and most respected residents and pioneers. He was the fourth eldest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Jenkin Morgan, who were amongst our earliest settlers. In his infancy, the late Mr. Morgan came from Goulburn — his birthplace — to Boor- owa with his parents, his father hav- ing been engaged by the well-known Chisholm family (who owned a large stretch of country between Boor- owa and Goulburn) to manage the 'Narra Allen' portion of the run, later removing to the 'Kenyu' por- tion, which he subsequently pur- chased. After his father's demise, the property was worked by Mr. Ben- jamin Morgan and his brothers, who, after meeting with a continuance of bad seasons, were compelled to re- Fix this text
