THE EXHIBITION BAR.
TO THE EDITOB. Km,—l am tho holder of a few shares in tho Exhibition Company. When I took them, and when I paid the calls upon them, to my knowledge it had not then been proposed that the company should also enter into the whisky business. There is not a word in the prospectus to have led me to suppose that whisky selling was to be part of the company's scheme I decidedly object to bo compelled to be a silent partner in this spec. I most certainly will not pay another penny upon the shares I hold unless compelled by the bailiff to do so. For twenty-five years on all possible occasions I have discountenanced the sale of intoxicating liquors, believing it to be the chief source of the misery we all so much deplore. Holding these views, it is now sought to compel me to be a partner in a traffic that every atom of me is at warfare with. Sir, I will not, let the consequences be what they may.—l am, etc., A. C. Bkoad, Dunedin, July 4.
P.S. I have notified the Exhibition Commissioners that it io my intention to resist any further calls upon the shares allotted me, A. C. B.
