WELLINGTON, Jci,t 27. " Our only General" gets a Snubbing;.

In the Legislative Council yesterday petitions were presented from Sir William Fox and Mr Joseph Newman, of Auckland, protesting against the granting of a license to the Dunedin Exhibition, Sir G. Whitmore said it was a piece of most utter impertinence for two men living at the extreme end of the North Island to seek to deprive any working man in the Southern capital of his glass of beer. Mr Pharazyn defended Sir W. Fox, saying that he had done more to improvo the social condition of the people than any other eitizen of New Zealand. Mr Wilson added that there was not the slightest ground for reprobating Bir William's conduct, he having merely exercised his right as a oitizpn. The Licensing elections.
