THE Sydney Sun reports . . .

Whether this is a hint on the part of the city council for the brewery employees to get on the ‘water- wagon’ is not known, but it is a coincidence that quite a number of the officers of the council are prohibitionists, and that the placing of the fountains is in their hands.
