THE PROHIBITION VOTE.
TO THE EDITOR, Sir,— l have been much surprised that no notice has been taken of the Prohibition vote in the House of Representatives. Mr Withy moved that the Government should introduce a Bill to provide for a direct vote being taken on “license” or “ nolicense.” The motion was carried, but I find that none of our four City members supported it. Messrs Allen and Fitchett both voted against it, and Messrs Fish and Stewart did not vote at all. I suppose Messrs Allen and Fitchett were both showing their gratitude for the brewers’ support they obtained at the election.— l am, etc., Elector, Dunedin, August 5,
