The Globe Hotel. — It will be seen by an advertisement in another column that Mr Robert Earl, late of the Club Hotel, Latrobe, has purchased from Mr T. J. Strong the lease, license, goodwill, furniture, and stock-in-trade of the Globe Hotel, corner of George and Cimitiere streets. Mr Earl, who has had about 20 years experience as a licensed victualler, is thoroughly well known in Tasmania, and as the hotel is one of the most favorably known in Launceston there is little fear of the trade diminishing under the new proprietary. We understand the price paid was £1800. An advertisement appears in another column requesting all accounts due to and claims against Mr Strong to be sent in no later than August 20

COURT OF REQUESTS.
Wednesday, November 16
Before his Honor the Deputy Commissioner, Mr. R. J. Beadon.
£10 JURISDICTION.
M. QUINN v. ROBT. EARL-Goods sold, £2 3s 2d. Mr. J. B. Waldron for plaintiff, Mr. J. S. Clemons (Messrs. Douglas, Collins, and Davis) for defendant.
The case was that boots at the Globe Hotel ordered goods at plaintiff’s shop by instructions of the cook on August 16 last, and it was a question who was to pay for them. Mr. Strong had left the hotel that morning, and Mr. Earl had apparently obtained possession later in the day, but both Strong and Earl repudiated responsibility.
Ben. Lavima, late boots at the hotel, stated he heard Earl give orders to the cook to get anything wanted; in consequence of that order the goods in question were procured.
John T. Strong stated he left the hotel on the day in question about 4 p.m.; he took the contents of the till an hour before he left; the stock-in-trade was taken over by Earl, and goods ordered that day would
be for Earl’s benefit.
Mr. Clemons applied for a non-suit on the ground that no authority to procure had been proved.
His Honor said there was sufficient prima facie evidence to prove the responsibility.
Robert Earl stated he assumed possession at 5 p.m. on the day; he gave no authority on that day to any one to pledge his credit; he did not then know the man Lavima; witness did not receive delivery
of any goods that day but what he paid for.
His Honor carefully reviewed the directly conflicting evidence, and on the point especially that no authority to procure had been proved, he gave a verdict for the defendant.

SUDDEN DEATH.
Mr John Edwards, aged 47 years, a resident for very many years in Launceston, was found dead in his bed, at his residence, the Globe Hotel, on Saturday morning. Mr Edwards was, we believe; a native of Sydney, but lived the greater portion of his life in Launceston, where he carried on the business of a stone and monumental mason for a long period. Some years ago he built the Globe Hotel, George and Cimitiere streets, and became the licensee. He was afterwards the landlord of the Exchange Hotel, George-street, but returned to the Globe, of which his son held the license at the time of his death. On Saturday afternoon Mr E. Whitfeld, the coroner, held an enquiry touching the death.
