THE TEMPERANCE DEPUTATION.
TO THE EDITOR. Sib,—The deputation of Good Templars who waited on the Hon. Mr Fergus re the illicit liquor trading would have done better had they not tried to dictate to the authorities as to what should be done, Detectives and policemen like their nip as well as anyone, and, untjl the Government see their way to allow publicans to open their bars at certain hours on Sunday, it will be impossible to do away with the evil which now exists. 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. Dunedin, October 30.
