The question of what becomes of beer confiscated by the police in raids upon sly grog shops was raised at Burwood Court yesterday. Mr. Williams S.M., said that he thought that the police sold the liquor. Sergeant Saunders said that the present practice was to give to public hospitals for the benefit of the inmates.

Mr. Williams: “Well these hospitals cannot be such bad places after all.”
