The keeper of the Ko Shing Theatre was summoned before Mr. Lindsell today for closing up two exits at the premises during a performance. Mr. A. E. Wright, of the P.W.D., said that together with Mrs. Hickling, the M. O. H. he visited the theatre at about 12 o'clock on the 9th and found two out of the nine exits closed, while the play was in progress. He regarded this as a serious matter, as in the case of an emergency, the people in the theatre would not be free to get out. A fine of $50 was imposed.
