TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —Why is it that m all other decently large towns of New Zealand half a pint of colonial beer pan be bought at any public bar for threepence, Ashburton being the only .exception, and. that, too, with six hotels m,full swing m the town ? Surely if, m Christchurch and Timaru, half a pint of beer can be sold for threepence the same thing could be done here ; but m all the Ashburton hotels the price of a beer sample, no matter how small the glass, is sixpence, and no choice of brewer either.—l am, etc. ; Malt.
