      CAUTION TO PUBLICANS AND OTHERS

      CHILDREN ACT, 1906

      The above Act, passed 21st December, 1906, came into operation 1st April
      last, and is being put in force by the police as may be seen by the reports of
      Tuam Petty Sessions in last week's Tuam Herald.

      EXCLUSION OF CHILDREN FROM BARS OF LICENSED PREMISES

      Section 120 of the Act says:

      The holder of the license of any licensed premises shall not allow any person
      under the age of 14 years to be at any time in the bar of the licensed
      premises except during the hours of closing,

      If the holder of a license acts in contravention of this section, or if any
      person causes or procures, or attempts to cause or procure, any child to go in
      the bar of any licensed premises except during the hours of closing, he shall
      be liable on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding, in respect of the
      first offence, forty shillings, and in respect of any subsequent offence, five
      pounds.

      If a child is found in the bar of a licensed premises, except during the
      hours of closing, the holder of the license shall be deemed to have committed an
      offence under this section unless he shows that he has used diligence to
      prevent the child being admitted to the bar or that the child was apparently over
      the age of fourteen.

      Nothing in this section shall apply in the case of any child of the license
      holder or in the case of a child resident but not employed in the licensed
      premises solely for the purposes of passing through in order to obtain access to
      or egress from, that part of the premises not being a bar, where there is no
      other convenient means of access to or egress from that part of the premises or
      in the case of railway refreshment rooms or other premises constructed, fitted
      and intended to be used in good faith for any purpose to which the holding of
      a license is merely auxiliary.

      JUVENILE SMOKING

      Section 39: If any person sells to a person apparently under the age of
      sixteen years any cigarettes or cigarette papers, whether for his own use or not,
      he shall be liable, on summary conviction in the case of a first offence, to a
      fine not exceeding tow pounds, and in the case of a second offence to a fine
      not exceeding five pounds, and in the case of a third or subsequent offence, to
      a fine not exceeding ten pounds.

      It shall be the duty of a constable and of a park keeper being in uniform to
      seize any cigarettes or cigarette papers of any person apparently under the
      age of sixteen whom he finds smoking in any street of public place, and such
      constable or park keeper shall be authorised to search any boy so found smoking,
      but not a girl.
