Result op No-licensk in Mataura. - In the course of an article on the results of No-license in Mataurn, the " Southern Standard" says:—"The opinions held by tradesmen may vary in detail as to the amount of benefit, but the concrete fact is 1 admitted by practically all that debts are less difficult to collect, that people are more liberal spenders than they were, and that there is Jess demand for perpetual credit. These blessings are attributed almost solely to the abolition of theopep bar. We do not cloud our eyes to the fact that there is still a good deulof private drinking going on in the town, but it is to an infinitesimal extent compared with what existed under the license regime, The old fallacy that no-license would bring in its wake an endless number of evil sly-grog shops has now been exploded, a few spasmodic attempts made in this respect were punished bo effectively that illicit liquor dealing may be said to be practically dead in the town at the present time."
