The Rochester magistrates on Saturday considered an application made on behalf of the Dean and Chapter for permission to pull down a beer-house, of which they are owners, and to build new licensed premises on the site. In reply to the Court, the architect stated that it was not proposed to increase the facilities for drinking. The application was granted on condition that a plan was submitted showing the beer-house apart from other buildings.

The Magistrates:- A plain plan will do. This in colours looks much too beautiful. (Laughter.)
