To the Editor, "Ensign" Sir,-Your contributor from the Liquor Trades Defence Association, under the above caption, sIngs a paean of praise on the theme of the present control of the trade. Its'trib ute to the Licences Reduction Board is interesting. lut why doones the trade allow itself to become the major lawbreaker in the State to-day under thin ideal control And why does has It been forced, fighting every step of the way, by an Indignant public to this "Ideal" control? Why, too, Is the trade so anxious to alter" this ideal position? For'the issue before us on October 8th, Is no more a battle to retain the present control than it Is a light for- prohibition.
