WAR AND PROHIBITION.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —The majority are so concerned over the desperate war the Empire is engaged in that they would have preferred to see the elections postponed. Apparently that could not be, but I am really at a loss to comprehend why the questions of Prohibition and Bible in schools have been dragged in at this time of great national stress. It is inconceivable that anyone who appreciated the fact that our Empire is fighting for its very existence could spare a thought to Prohibition. An utter absence of any sense of proportion is betrayed, and the result must necessarily be to irritate the great majority. There is another point, moreover, and that is that in view of the heavy expenditure to which we are committed it is unwise to interfere with our revenue.—l am, etc.. Imperialist. November 30.
