Our Wellington correspondent wires " The announcement that applications for space in the Dunedin Exhibition will not close nntil the 17th inst. has had a beneficial effect, as daring the last few days several additional applications from Wellington manufacturers have been received by Mr S. Carroll, the local secretary, and they are still coming in. In to-night’s ‘ Post ’ there is a letter telegraphed by Mr Twopeny in reply to that newpaper’s objection to bars at the Exhibition, in which the writer points out that the right to sell intoxicating liquors has invariably been granted to large exhibitions hitherto. The editor in a footnote remarks: ‘ln none of the cases mentioned by our correspondent was the granting of a" license contrary to law. Here it is distinctly so, and special legislation is required to authorise it. To this we strongly object.’ ”
