THE PUBLICANS AND THE TEMPERANCE QUESTION.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer having at the recent annual, dinner of the Exeter Licensed Victuallers pointed out the importance of temperance, and advised them to show by their conduct that they were not insensible to the existence of the evil, the representatives of the trade have held a conference in the city, at which several speakers admitted the importance of making their houses victualling establishments in fact as well in name. It was remarked that public-houses possessed every facility for providing whatever refreshments customers might jtrefer. On Jan. Ist the following resolution was unanimously passed : —“ That in the opinion of this conference it is highly desirable that licensed victuallers should be impressed with the necessity of making the sale of victuals and non-intoxicating liquors, such as milk, tea, and coffee, a leading feature of their business.” It is understood that a resolution in this spirit will be proposed at the annual conference of the licensed victuallers next month.
