Ancient Laws Worry British Innkeepers r XDNDON —(yp)_ Laws framed hundreds of years ago, when highwaymen terrorized, the roads, are worrying British Innkeepers. The matter came to a .head after a motorist claimed damages for loss of his car stolen from an inn car park. The judge found the innkeeper liable. The old laws were made for protection of travelers against highwaymen. Innkeepers say they were quite reasonable when fruwed. A thief wu!c! hnrdly break into s bles and bring out a horse, much less harness it to a carriage or coach, without the .landlord stable boy knowing it. Today, they say, a 1 car can be driven away from a car park without the landlord's knowing that the driver Is not the owner.
