... Sir, kindly insert the result of the polling for licensing commissioners at the two booths nearest the Tamaki Hotel, which was closed last June by the teetotal commissioners. The first five names are those supported by people of moderate views, the last four are those who would close all houses. They have polled 13 votes, including a well-known parson, who, if he had voted in his own district (Woodville) they would have had a total of 8 votes. No voters were brought from outside the district. I am, &c., Moderate Drinker
