Is it fair for a few members who might form a club, and only pay one-fourth tho license of a publican, to be allowed at any time to supply driuk. 1 do not hold with Sunday trading; but, to remove the present state of affairs, it would be much easier to detect any infringement of the law by opening at certain hours, —1 am, etc., Fairplay.
