He had also during a recent three weeks' visit, m which he had visited a large number of businesses and private houses, been offered only one glass of liquor. All the publicans m Christchurch could not convince him against these facts said Mr Yates. He intended to visit Ashburton before next election, and ascertain facts for himself.— I am, etc., B.E.M.
