THE DRINK TRAFFIC AND THE A. & P. SOCIETY.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—l was very glad to see the decided stand taken by some members of the A. and P. Society at the annual meeting of the Society held on Tuesday last, against the encroachments of the drink traffic m connection with the work of the Society. It ■ only requires the repetition of such. seen*e& as"were mentioned ait* tlie to secure the complete smashing'up of a Society which is calculated to do.much useful work m a community like thiafc, I wbuld'respectfully submit to: the Committee anc 1 members of the Society "whether "the granting'of. facilities for the sale and use of strong drink can m any way be brought within the scope of the operations of any A. and P. Society. There are scores of pledged abstainers and temperance workers m connection with the Society, and I would appeal'fab* them that if they wish to conserve the Society to dc its proper work, keep the drink out of it.. —I am, etc., J. Newman Buttle,.
