THE EXHIBITION LICENSING BILL.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— As a Dunedin hotelkeeper, I beg respectfully to thank Mr Fulton, M.H.R., for the anxious interest displayed by him in my behalf; but seeing that the show of alcoholic beverages will be one of the chief features in the Exhibition, as no doubt it should be, considering the extent and volume ef the trade and the many important industries connected with and fostered by it, and considering that the Exhibition should be looked upon as a national enterprise, and being desirous of its success, I entirely deprecate its being prejudiced or injured by any such selfish feeling as he suggests. If, however, Mr Fulton could induce the body he so well represents to present to the Exhibition fund a sum equivalent to that to be realised from the sale of the privileges, then Mr Fulton’s proposal might receive some consideration from those who have so liberally incurred a heavy risk and expenditure.—l am, etc., One of the Dunedin Hotelkeepers. Dunedin, July 8,
